Bedroom help needed for 10-year-old girl

7 years ago

We've just moved to a new house and for the first time in her life my 10-year-old daughter has her own room. She's always shared with her younger or older sister.

I've bought her a few things for her room but overall it looks kind of cold and empty. I would love some help making it and cozy and comfortable for her.

The bed is noon, the curtains are as well. The bedding is a hand-me-down from her sister. Happily can change that.

I am also open to eventually replacing that brown dresser or putting it in her closet.

I was going for a comfortable reading nook in this corner but I didn't realize how small the rug would be in her space. Either way, she picked it and loved it. She also picked and loves the night table. I am going to replace that little purple chair because she's way too big for it and I was thinking about a couple of oversized beanbag chairs for reading or hanging out with a friend. I was also contemplating a canopy in her room but I don't know if she's too old for that?

We are going for a eclectic bohemian kind of look in here. Her favorite colors are robins egg or mint blue and purple and those are the main accents we've been trying to use. I have no idea what color to paint her room and any decorating help would be very much appreciated!

At some point in the future I would also like to put a desk in there. I'm also not a fan of the bed against the wall but I don't have any ideas about where else to put it. Thanks in advance.
