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.

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?

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 :)

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!

I love the third one down, its perfect for a little girl or a teen. I love a room that can grow with the child and this one looks perfect.

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}

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.

All these rooms are so cute! We especially love the blue and green room - tres chic and practical too!

I agree. The blue and green room is great. A bit unexpected!

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!

I used to dream of having a beautiful bedroom as a teenager. Alas, it was not a high priority to my mother (money was tight). These bedrooms are so lovely!
