This month, the DIY Housewives are sharing kids room projects and ideas. And if you’ve ever been here to our little DIY blog before, you know I heart emoji kids rooms! In fact, I love kids room design so much that I couldn’t fit all my faves into ONE post. I needed two. In this post, I’m going to share great girly spaces and girls room ideas.
For years, I’ve been hoarding pins of kids rooms I love (click here if you want to see our Pinterest kids room board). And below I’m sharing what I consider the bestest of the bests from over there (plus I’m throwing in some of my own girl spaces for good measure).
Now, you’ll see that this collection of spaces happens to be SUPER floral-y and feminine. And I’m kind of annoyed with myself in that regard, because, the wonderful reality is that not all girls love pink and flowers and purple sparkly unicorns. I’m a big fan of gender neutral, and completely unique, bust-your-own-move style rooms, too. I mean, if a little gal loves the color black instead of pink, FANTASTIC. March to the beat of your OWN drum little ladies. If you want a superhero room, or a ninja warrior room by all means, RUN WITH IT.

Isn’t this room divine? I’m a sucker for large scale, bold print wallpaper, canopies and bright beds. And this gorgeous girl’s space has all those bases covered.
2.) House of Jade
I adore a girl’s room that isn’t sickeningly sweet. This one is perfection with it’s pop of pink, and bold, bird print wallpaper ceiling, which is a bit unexpected, and really helps showcase that cathedral ceiling. Light, bright and feminine without being over the top.
Soft and muted like a ballerina’s slipper, this gorgeous nursery is the perfect spot for a beautiful little lady. I adore the paper flower wall display with all the texture, and the bolder rug they chose. It’s not screaming in your face, it’s quiet as a lullaby, and graceful as the gorgeous little gal that it belongs to, I’m sure.
Bold beds make my heart go pitter-patter. They are the most important element in a bedroom, after all. And the bolder, the better as far as I’m concerned. Bright beds are a little off kilter and quirky, which can add some personality to a space. And if you have a little lady, you’re probably overflowing with personality in your own home. What a great way to show it off in their space.
This room is a thrifty wonder. Everything in this space was done for under $500. I know. Amazing. The wall was actually painted, it’s not paper. I adore that the palette is NOT pink, but it still has a very girly feel with the florals and the soft tones. Isn’t that vintage pendant amazing, too?!
Transitioned from a nursery to a big girl room, this floral wallpaper (also seen in #1 above) definitely has some longevity. The addition of the buffalo check duvet and linens, and the textures in the faux sheepskin and pillows, etc is so lavish and lovely.
Even though this room was done years ago, and the photography is pretty sub-par, this room still has my heart. It was the first room I decorated in our cape cod home that we’ve now moved from. If you haven’t seen where this room started, you need to check it out. The before and after is one of my favorites.
8.) O’Hara Interiors
Once again, a bold, floral, feminine wallpaper is a scene stealer. And a good antique bed always is a win.
9.) My Old Country House
This room done many years ago now, is still one of my favorites. PACKED with color and personality, Lesli mixes patterns like a pro. This gorgeous space beat out our damask girl’s room in a Washington Post kids room contest once upon a time. And I completely concur with the decision. This room will always be a winner in my book.
Orange is such a happy, punchy color. So I love seeing it used in a girl’s room. An accent wall that pops can’t help but draw some attention and a smile.
Our latest kids room completed was our daughter’s new space. We had been here about 3 years before I finally got my act together and tackled her room. And she is in love with her space, and frankly, so am I. For a small budget, we were able to transform this simple box into something she is not only proud of, but really enjoys.
