Charming And Country: How To Create The Perfect Bedroom For Your Little Country Girl

by Jason Mason

The country-themed decorating style is a popular choice among home decorators because of its timeless appeal. It's also a great choice if you want to transform your young girl's bedroom into a delightful place to sleep and play. After all, what little girl wouldn't love a country-themed bedroom overflowing with charming accessories?

Paint it country

It's best to stick to neutral colors when choosing paint for the walls and trim. Muted shades of beige, peach, or cream work well. Choose eggshell or gloss paint that can be washed and wiped clean easily. While flat paint can hide flaws and scratches on walls, it does not hold up to vigorous scrubbing.

Floor coverings count

Hardwood or laminate flooring is a great choice for a country bedroom. Little girls are notorious for making messes with lotions and makeup. Carpet is less forgiving when it comes to messes.

Wood or laminate flooring makes changing the look of a room a breeze. It always looks genuinely country, and it matches any kind of decorating theme if you decide to change the look as your child grows.

Furniture matters

You will want to select good quality furniture that is sturdy and can hold up to the rigorous play of an active little girl. When shopping for a bed, dresser, or accent tables, look for furniture made of solid wood. Wooden furnishings will stand the test of time and will create lasting beauty as your child transitions from childhood through the teen years.

Wooden canopy beds make charming additions to a country bedroom. They also make it easy to change the appearance of the room by adding fabric or drapes to the canopy to create a different effect in the room.

The right accessories complete the look

A wooden doll cradle, rocking chair, wooden toy chest, teddy bears, and dolls are a must in any country-themed bedroom for a little girl. Another fun accent piece is a wooden peg rail to hang on a wall. It is a great place to hang doll clothes or antique country clothing such as hats, bloomers, and prairie-style girl's dresses.  

No country room is complete without a quilt. A miniature wall hanging quilt will add instant charm to any wall or closet door. Use a full-sized quilt in place of a bedspread or comforter. Place a quilted pillow on a child's rocking chair to brighten up a corner.

Look for off-white drapes to complete the country look with the utmost charm and delight. Cotton, voile, lace, and muslin are good country fabric choices for window coverings.

Creating a charming bedroom for your little girl is easy when you choose a country-style decorating theme. Not only will she have a comfortable and cozy place to sleep, but she will also have a delightful place to laugh, play, and make memories.
