Turquoise wallpaper is combined with pale green, azure furniture, light yellow bedspreads are in harmony with curtains in the color of coral, pink butterflies look great with ocher facades and a beige floor.
When the bedroom windows face the sunny side, the colors are preferable green-blue, if the sun is clearly not enough, the wallpaper and furniture should be done in white-pink, light brown, orange. The bedroom-sea looks interesting - the color of sand on linoleum, in floor vases - pebbles, large seashells, the sky with clouds - on the ceiling, on the walls there are pictures in frames with sea views, wall murals depicting the ocean shore with palm trees to the ceiling.
An important selection of lighting: strict forms for a teenage girl’s room, yellow and pink flowers for schoolgirls, and small animals — the smallest.
When planning a nursery, some points should be taken into account:
- discipline - the correct structure of the room will teach to keep order;
- comfort - if the child is psychologically comfortable, he develops well;
- the availability of everything necessary - a chest of drawers for toys, a lesson table, a wardrobe, bookshelves, etc .;
- individual space - if the nursery is shared by two or more children;
- gender self-determination - when it is planned to place heterosexual children in the same room, places for sleeping and changing clothes should be separated by partitions.
In the girl’s bedroom, the bed occupies an important place. Separate the sleeping area by placing it on the catwalk or under such a fashionable attribute as a canopy. It can be a drapery from several layers, including a two-sided, minimalist decision from organza. The tone of the canopy should be combined with other textiles available in the room. Often a sleeping place is separated by a screen. Many girls like to look out the window - you can put a bed there, but the window should have good sound insulation, it should not blow from there.
Lessons are being done in the working area, this is a place for reading, writing, working at a computer, which can also be placed in the nursery. Here, as in the corner for creativity, they organize good lighting. The place of games is placed in any part of the room, a soft carpet is laid there. Zoning is carried out using color, screens, drywall partitions, furniture, local lighting. If the apartment has high ceilings, you can make a bunk space.
When choosing children's furniture adhere to certain rules:
- it should be appropriate for the age and height of the child;
- made from environmentally friendly and safe materials;
- should be light but steady;
- preferably without sharp corners;
- decoration of furniture for a girl will be different from a boy’s decor.
An approximate set of furniture for the nursery:
|Bed||This is a crib with rods, teenage, bunk, combined with a wardrobe.|
|Cupboard||It stores clothes on hangers and shelves, partially can be replaced by a chest of drawers.|
|Table||Written or computer, if space permits, it is advisable to install two tables - in the work area and in the game room.|
|Other furniture||These are racks, boxes for toys, hinged shelves, corner cabinets, bedside tables, game furniture.|
The bed should have a hard, better orthopedic mattress, so that the child normally gets enough sleep, he does not have a spinal curvature. If the bed is two-story, ladders should be non-slippery, well fixed. The wardrobe is preferred universal, able to accommodate a lot of girlish clothes, bedding, toys. The table should be selected with the maximum number of drawers, the chair should be adjusted height, backrest. Game furniture - slides, rocking chairs, swings, ladders are selected safe.

Decorative lights are preferred unbreakable.
Make out the nursery given the nature, preferences of the child. If the room is combined with a warmed loggia or has a bay window, then the working area is best placed there. When the space is small, it is visually expanded with a large mirror, the sleeping area is separated by a folding screen. It is good if the room for the girl has a large closet or shelving - numerous dolls, soft toys, clothes, etc. will fit there.
The magic girl’s bedroom is designed based on your favorite fairy tales, cartoons. This can be a four-poster bed, in the style of oriental tales of Shaherizada. Fairy-tale characters are present everywhere - gnomes on the wallpaper, angels on the bed, elves and fairies on the curtains. A fairy-tale room is decorated with furniture accessories - a chest of drawers or a dressing table, stylized as objects from doll houses, floor lamps with lace. Princesses in fluffy dresses, flying ponies are also in trend among girls of six to ten years old. You should choose your favorite colors of the child, making them primary.

Design for newborn baby
The design of the baby's room of the first year of life is being developed taking into account the comfort of her mother. It is better to darken the bed, put it not in the sun and not near the door, next to it is a dresser-table for changing, storing children's accessories. Protection against noise, drafts, acceptable humidity is of utmost importance. A warm, easy-to-wash carpet should be laid on the floor, on which the baby will play, crawl, take its first steps. Educational toys are placed in an accessible place. It also houses a couch, a chair for breastfeeding, mother's rest.
Design features for girls from 3 to 7 years
The play area at this age occupies most of the room - a place for pedaling cars, railways, a dollhouse, outdoor games with the ball. A sports corner with a Swedish wall, a rope, a swing will come in handy. In a well-lit place, place a table with a chair, where the girl will be engaged in drawing, modeling, reading, writing. The table and chair should be adjustable in height - many firms offer furniture that "grows with the child." The place to sleep should be comfortable, and for two children in a small bedroom they get a bunk bed.
Room for a creative person
The main place in such a room is a corner for creativity. There should be good lighting, enough space, not enough furniture. For creative accessories, you will need a chest of drawers or a table with drawers, ready-made works are placed in a glazed cabinet. The easel is useful to the young artist. Drawings in frames, embroidered pictures, quilling panels are hung on the walls. Pupae are seated on shelves in clothes sewn or knitted by a girl, home-made books, crafts made of plasticine, and natural materials are placed. For musical creativity in the room are the appropriate tools. The place here requires different things - if a chair in the corner is enough for playing the guitar, then for a piano or a drum set you will need two or four square places of space.
Not the last role is played by color design:
- sunny yellow is suitable if the girl is engaged in solving logical puzzles or constructing;
- blue-green - for theatrical productions and young speakers;
- purple will appeal to a future artist or musician.
In the interior, you can use decorative and educational objects - a map of the globe on the wall, the image of the constellations for the ceiling.
Modern design for teenage girl
The room of a teenage girl should match the interests of the growing personality, her temperament. Here is a huge scope for self-expression - a variety of colors and patterns, summer colors can be combined with monophonic cold in different ways.
For a child between the ages of 8 and 11 years, four zones should be distinguished in space: for sleep, games, study, the creative process. For older children, the play area is excluded.
For a music lover girl or a novice musician, the interior implies an original design. On the wall there is a place for your favorite guitar, on the shelf - an acoustic system with a microphone. One of the walls is decorated with old plates or discs, on the other - wallpaper with notes or posters depicting your favorite musicians, a podium is placed in the corner. Musical instruments can be duplicated on bedding.
The girl-athlete wants something in the interior to remind her of her passion. Photos of idols on the walls, shelves with their own awards, instead of cabinets - open shelves. On the wallpaper, the image of retro bicycles or gold cups is possible. All this is adjacent to your favorite soft toys.
Some girls want to become stylists, fashion designers. They sew clothes on dolls, comb their hair, being responsible for their appearance. In such a room, everything is subject to sewing art, fashion photography and glamor. This room needs a large full-length mirror, a well-lit place for needlework.
Many teens at some point begin to love black, they want to design their room completely black. This is a temporary phenomenon associated with youth subcultures, therefore it is worth compromising - not to paint the walls, floor and ceiling in black, but to buy bed linen and curtains of this color, a rug on the floor, a black computer table and chair. The rest of the space is white or pastel colors.
The options for a designer bedroom for a girl are endless. We should not forget that children grow very quickly, and their hobbies and preferences in adolescence can change almost daily. If the girl already understands something, and even more so knows specifically what is needed in the room, then her wishes should be at least partially taken into account, and not her own be imposed too strictly. After all, a child is a future adult who wants to experiment, a full-fledged personality at any age.
