Dd is 10 and has quite a babyish bedroom so we've agreed to do it up for her. She's currently got fairy wallpaper/curtains and one of those toy tidy things that she doesn't use and she ends up with all her younger sisters' bits and pieces.

We're going to get her a new bed as she's only got a 2'6" bed and I thought a little dressing table where she can do her hair and store all her hair things (there is already a fitted desk and wardrobe in the room). I've seen some nice furniture in Aspace and Great Little Trading....does anyone know where else we could look?

As for the walls and curtains, I have no ideas. She's quite girly but wants something a bit more grown up. Any ideas?

How about a wall mural on one wall instead of paper? There are some amazing flower ones which aren't that expensive if you google it (around £60). We did this for dd with a chandelier and some nice cushions on the bed.

We also choose a pullout bed for easy sleep overs.

A big plus is that it is relatively easy and inexpensive to change the mural if dd wants another 'look' in a few years.

I'd go with a girlie shade such as pink but on one wall have a very bright pink with a big wall decal (like a sticker). I got a big 5' one from eBay for my bedroom in black with birds and a tree for less than £20. Paint the furniture white or grey and add vintage floral touches, ornate mirrors, a chandelier (plastic ones can be picked up for £15 - 20) and trinket boxes.

I am just starting my dd room. I dont want to go for a too girly pastel look. It will be mainly white with fushia pink, lime green and turquoise bedding and curtains. If you look on the Designers Guild website it will give you good ideas for colour schemes. Also I had some fitted shelving made from mdf to be painted. The fitted look is much sleeker looking and really adds to the room
