Decorating a girl's bedroom
The great thing about decorating a girl’s room is the amount of choice you have. Most girls will embrace many colours and tend to love pretty, decorative things. But let’s be honest: A young girl might not be thinking practicality. So it’s up to you help narrow the options by choosing attractive but functional items. Look for solid pieces of furniture painted colourfully or bins that and double as stylish storage solutions and decor.
