One of the most exciting parts of building a new home in Richmond, VA is decorating. Here are a few ideas for designing and decorating a girl’s room in your new home from Main Street Homes.
- One great way to liven up a living space is with wallpaper. Pick a fun print or a bright color, like pink or red, for an accent wall in your new home in Richmond, VA. Tie things together with white furniture and color matching accessories.
- Keep your color palette simple and fun. Pick a few colors like pinks, reds, greens, creams or whites when decorating. White or cream walls will make prints on fabrics or walls and colored accessories stand out.
- The furniture in your girl’s room should be functional and practical. White furniture creates the illusion of looking bigger than it really is. Double functioning furniture, like a daybed or trundle bed, also helps optimize your space in your new home in Richmond, VA.
- Storage is very important when keeping your girl’s room clean and tidy. Hang a peg rail to hold coats and bags as well as hold toys or accessories. Fun baskets and storage crates for under the bed also look great while optimizing space. White shelving and storage always looks classic against any changing accessories as your girl grows up.
- Accessories are a great way to add color, style and functionality to your girl’s room. Use accessories like unique mirrors, fun lamps, funky chairs, trendy throw pillows and others to personalize your style and hold your design together. Use netting or fun fabrics on a four post bed to make your little girl feel like a princess.
- Let your little girl personalize her room in your new home in Richmond, VA. Hang up her art. Let her pick out the colors or wallpaper for the walls. Pick out accessories together. Make designing and decorating fun for both of you. As she grows, help her update her room to her changing styles and tastes. Using wall stickers is also a great way to personalize and update your girl’s style as it changes.
- If you have a very small little girl, remember to keep her safe. Do not place her bed under a window, next to a radiator or under any heavy wall art, mirrors, pictures or shelves. Secure any cords, drawers, windows and heavy free-standing furniture. Use socket covers for any unused outlets.
- Pick up the pattern from the duvet or comforter. Like the photo here, we used tracing paper to lay out the pattern on the wall and then filled in with paint that matched the colors in the bedding. It was a fun colorful addition to our new home in Richmond, VA.
