Skip the theme

...And instead focus on creating a backdrop that will adapt to her tastes and personality as she grows.

1. Antique or unique furniture

Found bedside tables, spindle scalloped shelves, and a carved sleigh bed each bring their own special touch.

2. Mix old and original wall décor

Mix paintings, photographs, antique frames, and a favorite piece of baby clothing for a sweet vignette that can be added to over the years. Our girls love our playful animal cameos.

4. Allover pattern

Match the curtains with the wallpaper to create a cozy, patterned cocoon.

    5. ...Or an accent wall

    If all-over florals are too much of a commitment, an accent wall can be the perfect compromise for a playful focal point in the room.

    6. Mix classic patterns with playful ones

    Bringing in classics like ticking stripes, gingham, and toile will stand the test of time as other accents in the room change.

    8. Add girly details

    Scallops, florals, fringes, tassels, ribbons, or bedskirts? YES, all of them. You don't need too pick just one. At least one of these details is in just about all of these rooms.

    10. Sconces, pendants, and chandeliers

    Make lighting an accent instead of an afterthought by bringing pieces with character that matches your daughter's. A glamorous, sparkling chandelier?
