When I found out I was having a girl, I was so excited to decorate a pink nursery. As my daughter got a little older and we transitioned out of a crib and a “baby” room, I wanted to choose furniture and bedding that would grow with her. We could always swap out artwork or paint as her tastes change.
My daughter is now 8-years old and she still loves her bedroom. The toys have changed, but I love the classic look of her furniture and bedding. We chose “First Light” by Benjamin Moore as the paint color. I love this shade of pink – it is not too overpowering and makes a great backdrop to the rest of the room.
Steps to Create a Classic Room That Will Grow With Your Child
- Choose a few key pieces that are not too “babyish” – such as a bed and dresser that will work for a young child as well as a teenager.
- Pick bedding and curtains that will transition from toddler years to tween years.
- Choose accents that your child loves that show their personality. These are easy to change over the years.
- Change artwork over the years as your child’s tastes change.
My daughter’s room is inviting, peaceful and fun. I know as she grows older, the books on the bookcase will change, and the artwork might be swapped out for something a little more grown up. But the basic foundations are there to grow with her.
