Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice…

of course little girls are usually a bit of snips and snails and puppy dog tails as well. I am currently in the beginning stages of designing two little girl’s rooms! I love creating children’s spaces..They’re fun and NEVER serious!! I was searching for a bit of inspiration! Of course I’ll share it with you!!

Girls’s rooms don’t have to be pink or purple…..

I love how this room isn’t too sweet.

  1. great inspiration. I am about to redo my daughters room. I love it, but now she wants green. It's good to nurture their imagination, right?

  2. Hi Julie,
    I am in the mood to give my now three year ol' a room … she'll enjoy growing in … loved your ispirational ideas … I guess there so much to play around with in the girlie rooms … I just don't know where to start … but enjoyed your pictures … lovely 🙂

  3. LOVE the peace sign pillow! My daughter {turning ten}and she adores peace signs.. I love the "not pink or purple" rooms too.. I believe the largest source of inspiration would be the girls themselves.. How old are they? And are they sharing a room? I just love to do kids spaces too.. like you said, never too serious.. and I think while doing the rooms, we get the pleasure of remembering a few of our own childhood memories.. which is a nice break from the every day… It's such great timing.. these images you've posted.. I'm in the midst of redoing my four year olds bedroom, Paris Abella.. She has a large Eiffel tower like the one in the aqua room you have posted.. and a few small towers.. she still calls it "her tower" lol.. Perhaps I should tell her the truth? 😉 Great post and I look forward to seeing your work in progress!

  4. I agree. With small changes the room should grow with the child. I am designing two rooms. I'll post the end results. {as long as the client doesn't mind}

  5. Fabulous rooms. I was at my daughter's ballet class the other day (her Gr 2 exam is this week) and couldn't help thinking how sweet they all looked in their pink leotards, tights and hair in buns. No wonder they all love pretty things. I do like your image of the blue and green room though, just a bit more sophisticated and will last alot longer.

  6. I love the last pic..and the fact that Cynthia R used plain old caulking to make the designs and painted over… LOVE that idea…so chic and so inexpensive!
