  • I havent gone through this yet but I would give your child some choices. I'd say these are your options princess/cars/horses/etc. and then go with that so they at least have a direction to help you pick out things. I will be letting my DD pick out stuff for her room but not let her go crazy of course! Have fun :)

  • my DD's room was decorated before she was born & she's only one so i decide. i actually havent changed anything since i first did it. but we are moving at the end of the month, but im gonna decorate it just the same haha

    its a green & pink frog theme. the walls are crocodile smile green (bright, but not neon). all the accents are a pale pink & there are stuffed frogs on the shelves & toy chest. i also found cute frog wind catchers & hung them from her curtains (which are pink). everything follows the theme, but there isnt much in there b/c she's still so little.

    she can decide what she wants more & more as she gets older.

  • I have chosen not to let the kids a great deal of freedom in this area just yet. As I feel they change their minds and interests much to frequently. It may be princesses one day and butterflies the next. So I made a compromise with both my kids, they could have their comforter and pillow case in a "theme" and the rest of the room would just be a basic color with some decorative pictures. I also let them pick out window clingy stickers. I did this because I do not have the money to constantly be changing their room. Right now my daughter is 5 and her comforter is Disney princess as well as her window stickers (found at the dollar tree), my sons is basketball. I told them after kindergarten they would be able to chose a bedroom "theme", but it would stay until they were 12 or 13.

  • My sons share a room, and its decorated in a tiger theme. my oldest has loved tigers since we was like 8 years old. My daughter's room is decorated in a pink princess/butterfly theme. We just let her pick out some wall stickers from the Dollar Tree and decorated her room really pretty with them. She's also got a Dora poster, an angel that my friend made her, and a butterfly craft she made at school.
