Ah, the big-girl bedroom: an all-too-brief pit stop between your little one’s nursery days and the “how-the-heck-are-you-a-teenager-already?” moments to come. The secret to getting it right is finding the right balance.

Your self-pronounced “big girl” will be a whole lot bigger before you know it, so you want to create a space that reflects her advancing maturity and anticipates her future needs. But while your daughter may be growing up, she’s not there yet. Being a “big girl” is fun, and a big-girl bedroom should be too!

Start with a beautiful room—the kind of room you can see your future teen enjoying—and then focus on introducing the key element of fun. Add a touch of whimsy with polka dots or a glittery accent wall, and build on your daughter’s passions. If she’s a book-lover, consider creating a cozy reading nook. Prima ballerina? How about her very own dance barre? It’s doesn’t take much to make your little girl’s dreams come true, and you can always update these elements as she grows.

Need a little inspiration? These 21 fun and creative bedroom ideas for girls will help you make your daughter’s space as special as she is.
