Bring the Magic Kingdom Home to Her With Disney Princess Room Decor

There’s no shortage of Disney Princesses to inspire a little girl’s custom theme bedroom. Here is a rundown of just some of Disney’s most popular princesses and related elements of their magic kingdoms to help you design girls room decor that will delight the little princess who lives in your castle:

Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:

A Snow White themed Disney princess room might have a foresty decor – with trees and floral meadows under a bright and yellow sunny sky, happy and friendly forest creatures like deer and bunnies dancing around, and let’s not forget the seven lovable dwarfs. And don’t forget the magic mirror on the wall to make sure she always knows that she’s the fairest of them all.

Ariel from The Little Mermaid:

A Princess Ariel themed girls room decor would have an undersea design – with watery shades of blue punctuated by bubbles, and colorful coral. Ariel’s oceanic friends – fish, crabs, and seahorses (among others) – can accent the room and flesh out the fantasy even further, either as a wall mural or wall hanging, area rug, or throw pillow. Speaking of throw pillows, seashells and clamshells would also make terrific throw pillow designs, as they would lampshades for a floor lamp or table lamp. You can even consider including a real live aquarium in the room so your little Ariel can share her love, and her kingdom, with her own vibrant sea life.

Cinderella from Cinderella:

A Cinderella themed Disney princess room decor would have your little girl feeling like the belle of the ball. Design the room like a ballroom, with an imitation parquet floor below her dancing feet and a fancy faux-chandelier casting sparkling light down upon her tiara. Flowing fabrics, reflective surfaces, and glittering accents all add to the aura of majesty and transformation redolent of this delightful fairy tale. Accents can include a glass slipper – perhaps as a lamp or a wall hanging – and a pumpkin coach – either as a beanbag chair, a papysan or other elaborate seating, as a unique wardrobe design, or even as the design for her custom bed at the room’s centerpiece.

Princess Jasmine from Aladdin:

With a Princess Jasmine themed room design, you can give your little girl “a whole new world” to live in and make all her nights Arabian nights. Her walls or floor coverings could have the yellow and tan colors of rolling sand dunes, while you speckle the room with unique childrens furniture in the bright and vivid colors of a bustling marketplace. Just don’t forget a magic lamp for her own private genie to live inside, and a magic carpet beneath her for her take a soaring ride through a dream-filled landscape any time she desires.

Pocahontas from Pocahontas:

A Pocahontas themed girls room decor would have a Native American flavor. Drawing inspiration from the old American southwest, you can use Native American rugs on the floor and on the walls as well. An eagle or hawk can fly overhead in the form of a mobile or a model or a wall hanging. Terra cottas, tans, browns and reds can mingle with a green landscape. A waterfall into a rolling river might make a great mural on one wall, while a tall stuffed toy horse stands in the opposite corner. Feathers, arrowheads, and petroglyphs all make excellent accents for this style of kids bedroom decor.

At the centerpiece of all of these rooms, whether your little girl prefers Snow White, Princess Ariel, Cinderella, Princess Jasmine, Pocahontas, or any of the other many inspiring princesses from Disney’s fairy tales will be, of course, a custom girls bed to complete the fantasy made real. With such a custom theme bed as the hallmark of your little girl’s Disney Princess room, she’ll feel like royalty in her own magic kingdom awake and asleep, all day and all night.

Butterfly Wings and Fairy Tales Are Made For Little Girls

There’s nothing most little girls love more than to feel like a fairy princess. Whether it is the whimsical decor of their rooms or the adorable accessories they wear, such as tutus and butterfly wings, little girls just love to be little girls. Some of the most popular themes for children’s room decor revolve around butterflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, and flowers, with a bit of glitter and sparkle thrown in for extra magical effect and to inspire the imagination.

Butterfly room décor is perhaps one of the most magical and whimsical ways to decorate a nursery or young girl’s bedroom. A butterfly nursery creates a light, airy and uplifting feel that is sure to stimulate baby while creating a beautiful and restful place for baby to sleep and play. From glittering butterflies dangling from the ceiling, to colorful flowers and perhaps the baby’s name spelled out in alphabet letters on the wall, butterfly décor creates a feminine and lighthearted feel.

Butterfly decorations do not only add a sense of beauty and magic to nurseries and little girls rooms, but can create that extra special touch anywhere that a bit of whimsy is needed. Of course, a butterfly bedroom is filled with wonder and a bit of the fairy princess that lives in every little girl, but dainty nylon butterfly and flower decorations are also the perfect accessory to decorate a baby or bridal shower party, a garden themed party, or even an outdoor wedding. Sure, most people think of little girls waving their magic wands around with butterfly wings on their back when they think of butterfly decorations, but the fact is that even as we grow, a set of butterfly wings or a dainty butterfly decoration evokes a sense of magic in all of us.

Another popular bedroom décor theme for little girls centers around the garden. While butterfly decor can evoke its own magical or fairy princess theme, it can also work well with a garden theme. Other items like flowers, dragonflies, bumblebees, and ladybug decorations can inspire a little girl’s bedroom with color, charm and a feminine feel that little girls love. There’s no end to a child’s imagination and decorating their rooms with these whimsical decorations serves to inspire creative play and makes them feel like they are living like a fairy princess in their own magical land.

In addition to room decor, butterfly wings, tutu skirts and fairy wands top many a little girl’s list when it comes to desired dress up clothes. When a little girl puts on a butterfly costume, she doesn’t simply become a butterfly. With her nylon butterfly wings she feels as if she can fly like a fairy or an angel. Add to that a beautiful pastel colored nylon tutu and she really feels like she’s transformed into a character from a storybook. Imagination soars when children put on a pair of fairy or butterfly wings and a tutu, or wave a fairy wand. Not only do children look adorable in these costumes and dress up clothes (and are deserving of many a photo taken by mom or dad!), but accessories like tutus, fairy or butterfly wings, and wands inspire the imagination and result in hours of uninhibited creative play.

When it comes to bringing out creativity and inspiration in little girls, whether it’s the dress up clothes they wear when they play or the decorations that grace their rooms, there’s nothing like decorative items and accessories that are inspired by nature and sprinkled with a bit of glitter, sparkle and fairy dust to create some magic.

Points and Ideas For Decorating Kid’s Rooms

Kids rooms need to please both adults and children and provide a safe environment for multiple functions. How can all this be achieved in one room?

Kids love to be creative. Most kids bedrooms are decorated according to themes. Every child has something special they love. It can be butterflies, fish, or anything that can be developed into a theme for their room. Girls of course love the feminine colors, princess motifs, or ballerinas, and don’t forget the up dated Hannah Montana. Boys like the sports, baseball, football, soccer, skateboards, music, or high tech themes. Boys also like to be rugged and build forts or tents. Let the child tell you what colors he or she prefers. You can take a child drawing of what he or she envisions the room to be and develop a plan to decorate their room. The child may tell you in the drawing the sun is rising and you could use a beautiful yellow color as the backdrop for the walls. They may like flowers which can be placed on the bedding or the walls. Get the children to communicate what makes them feel happy and comfortable. By allowing them to help contribute to the decorating process they will develop planning skills, time management, a budget while shopping, and coordination of colors and patterns.

In the room you will need to designate areas for play and study, and a place to relax for sleeping. The placement of a rug can define a space and separate the study area from the sleeping area. Below we discuss how lighting, color and furniture will help designate the different areas. Texture of the rugs, bedding and surfaces will also help design the different spaces for the children to function in their rooms. You want to design so you achieve the highest and best use of the space.

Color plays an important part in decorating a room for a child. Certain high intensity colors, red for example may be to stimulating for their rooms. The brighter colors would be best used for accessories or organizational items. The bed linens might be another place you could introduce a brighter color.

Lighting also will be a key factor in developing multiple functioning areas. Proper task lighting for the study reading area, more subtle lighting for the sleeping area. Installing a dimmer switch might help to achieve the desired effect for when it’s time to wind down and sleep.

Lets talk a little about furniture. Selection of furniture depends upon several factors. How long do you plan to keep the furniture, will it be an investment? If so selecting a style and quality of furniture that will grow with the child is important. Paint and fabric are easy and inexpensive to change when you need to “grow the look.” Perhaps you want to purchase a juvenile looking set of furniture when they are young and upgrade when the child grows. This is not a bad idea. Most juvenile furniture sets that still have life can be sold after the child upgrades to a better quality set of furniture. The second group of furniture selected will probably last for the teen years, could go to college or be recycled for a guest bedroom. You can use built in furniture pieces for a custom look, or to develop a theme. Loft beds with desks underneath are another option to increase usable floor space. Or a furniture set with a storage bed and computer desk and hutch for storage.

Storage of course will always be needed in childrens rooms. Arrange frequently used items so they have easy accessibility. The average kids room has limited square footage, so every inch will count.
Increase the space available by organizing the closet. Vertical shelves with pull out baskets can hold clothing, toys, and treasures. Shelving to the top of the closet can hold items not used very often, suitcases, extra bedding, sports equipment, collections. Double hang rods for clothing. Top rod for seasonal items, uniforms, bottom for everyday use. Of course color coordinate the hangers and baskets with the room so if the closet doors are left open it will be a continuous space. With color coordination it will be easy for the children to pick up and put items in their place. Arranging the closet could turn into a game or a lesson with a directory so the child can learn life skills.

Combining patterns in your fabrics will add interest and life to the room. Select a floral or novelty pattern, a stripe, and a small dot or repeated pattern to build the room. The key is to keep all the fabrics in the same color family and the correct scale. Decorating consultants are available to offer guidance so your assured of professional results. All rooms need to be decorated age appropriate. Some items can grow with the child. Remember paint and fabric are easy and inexpensive to change when you need to “grow the look.” A neat, organized, room pulled together visually will help the child develop many life skills and appreciation for their surroundings.

A few easy inexpensive ideas and projects I’ve used for girls rooms are as follows:

Stamp a motif on the wall with a precut rubber stamp and paint to coordinate with your theme. I developed a Disney Princess theme and stamped Princess crowns on the wall and embellished the crowns with jewels. Just randomly add packaged jewels, pearls, or mirrored stones to make the crowns dazzle. Sometimes party favors can be used to embellish curtains or other items in a room. I used the clear acrylic “glass slippers” to finish off a Cinderella room valance.

Another idea position a half round sconce upside down as a focal point for a canopy. Gather the fabric for the canopy and attach inside the sconce, flow fabric out of the sconce, arch back on the sides with tie backs. This will give a soft, dreamy appearance depending on the amount and type of fabric used. Sconces can be found at thrift stores and painted to coordinate with the fabric, or covered with the fabric by attaching the fabric with spray on adhesive.

Ideas for boys rooms:

Graphic wall art can be used effectively for boys rooms. It gives color, interest, and can create a focal point in a room. It can be used in conjunction with artwork or posters. If your working with a race car theme, you could use a tire tread pattern on the walls. Paint a tire and do loops or figure eights. Finish with a black and white checkered board for a headboard or black and white tiles for the flooring. Little matchbox model cars can be attached to replace furniture knobs, or use for embellishment across a valance or shelf.

Laser printers can print a mural photo of a special place, event, or skyline and be attached to the wall as wallpaper or framed out as large art piece.

Remember for children’s rooms hang things at their level, so they can enjoy them.

Make a child room a place for them to retreat, have fun, and be proud to show to their friends.
