A pink or lilac based scheme seems the obvious place to start, little ladies often gravitate toward the sugary shades but that sweetness can become a little sickly, so dilute candy colours against cream and white, or neutralise with contemporary grey. Consider bringing a sharp zing of lime on the scene via a deep wall stripe, zesty curtain material, or contrasting storage boxes, or breathe fresh air through blush tones with breezy sky blue. Mix pastels or rainbow tones using bold prints like Cath Kidston-esque florals or whimsical nature inspired textiles.
The eclectic look works really well with a pretty pallet too, so consider making wall art from mismatched scraps of material or repurpose old ornate frames with a lick of paint–you could even ask your little ones to help out with the crafting, they will love their rooms all the more if they feel they have helped to create it. Add a crowning glory in the form of a sparkly chandelier to give the space a magical glittery ambience.
Bases of black also work extremely well in a girly colour story, acting as an anchor to a floaty feminine scheme. A great way to introduce black without it sitting too heavy, or becoming overpowering, is to use it as a background to a light hearted polka dot pattern, or a shot of pinstripe. You could even paint an entire chalkboard feature wall where your child’s own drawings can transform the strong statement into a fun, lively piece.
Go on, give your princess-in-training her dream castle, before she’s yelling “off with their heads!”
