From fairytale bedrooms with bedding fit for a princess, to grown-up floral furnishings and sophisticated decorating themes, it’s easy to create a haven for your girl.
Pick a theme colour or pattern the bedroom and work backwards from this. It could be the colour of the wallpaper of paint, or even just a pattern to use in a feature wall, furnishings and bedding.
