Hey there! Thank you for checking out this post. This is one of many designs that I’ve put together with the hope of making it easier for you to decorate your home.
This design is for a girl’s room, and with every design on our website, I’ve included a Checklist with all of the pricing and the links to buy each piece for you to recreate the same look. It’s not just inspiration and then a “Scavenger Hunt” to find everything that you need. The Checklist will also enable you to buy the pieces gradually over time if you need to.
In this design, I tried to think of all the possibilities, so there are several bed options for you to easily create a girl’s room for one, two, three, up to as many as six. I’ve also included the total costs for 1-6 bed variations below the Checklist. A bedroom for six can be created in a room that is as small as 9.5 feet wide and 9.5 feet long. It’ll be tight, but it can be done.
Make sure that you measure the room carefully. Don’t forget to account for baseboards, and door jams. Consider walkways, and when a door swings open.
I just wanted to mention that I will be doing a boys version of this room in the next couple of days, so keep an eye out for that.
Okay, let’s talk about the design. I used the wall tapestry as my inspiration and I pulled all of the colors from there. Because it is just fabric, you can see that it will sag in the middle if it isn’t properly secured. I’m thinking that you could take heavy duty double stick tape and run it along the edges and stick it to the wall so that it won’t sag.
I chose mostly white furniture so that it would be easy to switch the colors of the room. I also like the clean look of white. When you use darker colors for the furniture, it’s easier for the room to look drab and dirty as clothes and toys start spreading out.
Initially, I had a hard time finding purple accessories, but I dug in and finally found some things. I think that the polka-dotted rug is really cute. You can’t see it in the picture, but follow the link and the other photos show that the polka-dots are actually raised a little on the rug, which is adorable in my opinion. I put in the solid purple rug as a second option.
I couldn’t believe how perfect the colors of the poufs were for matching the colors in the wall tapestry. Actually, I think that the wall tapestry has so many shades of purple it’s hard to not find a matching shade.
I questioned whether putting in the plants was a good idea, but I decided that this would be a nice way to teach about caring for and nurturing something. Obviously, if they are really young, say between 3-5 years old they could want to mimic you by watering the plants again and again to feel grown up. More than likely you’ll be the one watering the plants. You know what – consider the plants optional.
I chose the circular swivel chairs because they say “young” and “hip”, and what child doesn’t love a good swivel chair? Swivel chairs remind me of when I watched a brother and sister squeezed together on an office chair, spinning around in circles. They were laughing and giggling, until the brother found the lever to raise and lower the chair mid spin. The chair must have been all the way up because when he released the lever, it lowered a lot and it was quick. They both went quiet and the surprised looks on both their faces was really funny. It still makes me smile thinking about the fun they were having in that swivel chair. You know that sound of children’s laughter that makes you smile.
As always, several items were on sale when I wrote this post, and I can’t guarantee that they still will be the same price when you read this. I will do my best to make sure that none of the links go bad, and I will switch items out as that happens. If you find a bad link before I do, please gently comment and let me know.
There should be free shipping on most of the items, and there could be some taxes, so my totals are approximate. I’ve tried to make sure that it’s a better experience than if you went after this on your own, but you still may hit a couple of snags.

I included 2 desks instead of 2 nightstands because it seems weird to me when the top bunk can’t reach their nightstand.

Sleeps 6 $3,400 Includes 2 triple twin bunk beds, 1 nightstand, 1 dresser, 2 poufs, 6 mattresses, 6 sets of twin bedding, all of the artwork, accessories, and the solid purple area rug. I put this one together with the idea that the room is small, so I have just one nightstand in between the two bunk beds that would be on opposite walls. You could save a little money if you switch the solid purple rug with the smaller polka-dot rug. I put in the purple because it’s darker, and I thought with 6 girls, it would hide spills better.
Side Note: There are several more ways to put this room together, but I think that I gave you enough ideas to get you started. Be sure to measure the room accounting for baseboards, and check dimensions of the furniture to be sure everything fits.
