When decorating bedrooms, especially for kids, it's a good idea to consider your girl's disposition. Is she able to readily unwind after a full day? If your answer is "no," you may want to consider bedding with pastel colors versus their more exciting, primary cousins.
Color has a bigger influence over our mood, behavior and activity level than most of us realize. Loud colors really do energize us.
Ever wonder why many fast food restaurants boast yellows and reds as their signature hues? The colors are purposefully chosen to keep us moving.
Now, think of how those colors might affect our otherwise, fully-charged girl come nightfall and I'd venture to say loud colors might keep her from settling in or concentrating if she's apt to do homework in her bedroom.
Opting for pastel polka dot bedding like these comforter sets will serve you well as both focal point and soother, softening mood and activity levels.
Polka dots have an eye-catching appeal by their own design, so you won't need vibrancy, here. These purple and lavender bed sets have the power to turn up the room's vibe while adding to a more restful abode.
Fun DIY Lighting Tip: For a quick solution to a lighting source, you might opt for large white paper lanterns that would make fabulous, uber-cheap lighting; all you need do is add a hanging light kit (for about $7-$10). Opt for three all white or a mix of white and lavender lanterns and hang at different lengths for drama.
