When shooting homes or browsing photos online, we're always excited to see how homeowners decorated and personalized their bedrooms. Since it's a private haven that guests don't usually see, it's fun to discover how owners were able to showcase the things they love and made the space special.

If you're planning to redecorate your home or if you have a little princess who is excited to have her own bedroom, here are decorating ideas that we learned from our featured homes that you can follow. Make sure you keep these things in mind as it might be applicable to other areas of the home too:

Create an accent wall

Liven up a plain wall by having a customized accent wall above the bed. Consider working with florals and other unique prints. In this room, the watercolor-style print makes the space cozy and relaxing.

RL Tip: You can also hang framed photographs, prints and a work of art.

Play with different colors

We're used to seeing blue walls in boys' rooms and shades of pink in the girls' spaces. Don't let this stop you from experimenting and trying different hues. Consider working with charming pastels and soothing neutrals.

You can opt for pink, teal, and gray shades when finalizing the color scheme of the room. These options can lend a calming vibe to the space.

Mix and match

Don’t be afraid to mix prints and patterns together! Let the photo above be your inspiration. The owner opted to match pink chevron wallpaper with printed upholstery featuring florals.

Work with quirky and trendy accessories

We're all fans of unexpected touches. To add a fun and playful touch to the space, you can hang paper lanterns, buntings, and even string lights. These pieces can add a whimsical vibe to the room too.

You may also want to add an area rug to add warmth to the space.
