Take a pretty wallpaper and/or fabric in your daughter’s favorite color, whether an Indian block print, a toile or a floral and cover as many surfaces as you can in said fabric, including walls, curtains, headboard, dust ruffle, chairs, pillows and in particular a canopy, if possible. Accent with pretty white linens, a little gingham or stripes for contrast, perhaps a solid color on an upholstered piece and a few complimetary accessories and voila! the perfect girls room.
