Most little girls have at some point in their lives dreamed about having their own princess room. What is a princess room exactly? It is a space that is feminine, romantic, and incredibly special to its royal occupant. (Because we are the rulers of our spaces, correct?) Every girl’s definition of a princess room is a little different, but they all have the same general theme which I would describe as “glamorous femininity.” I had a lot of fun looking for princess rooms that fit this bill and I found some beautiful ones for every age: child, teenager, and adult. They all have their own personality and flair so hopefully one (or many) will inspire the princess in you.
1 This room located at Versailles in Paris, France couldn’t be more fitting for a princess. The sheen on the chairs’ fabric adds an extra touch of glamour and the lush curtains framing the bed create a grand a effect.
2 I love the exquisite pink canopy in this sweet little girl’s bedroom. The pink and white striped wallpaper mimics the fabric on the canopy and the simplicity of the bedding keeps it elegant.

3 A large, pretty stencil is a fabulous way to create a dreamy look like the one in this little girl’s room. Canopy beds are always a sure way to create a look fit for a princess, even on a daybed.
4 Even the grown-up contemporary girl can have a beautiful princess room of her own. By incorporating a luxurious pink fabric in clever spots (the bed coronet, curtains, and a few pillows) against a neutral background, the space is sophisticated without being overwhelmingly girly. A chandelier is always sure to bring some glamour, too.
5 For a hip teenager, the princess feel can be subtly added through soft touches of pink and thoughtful elements like the simple canopy, detailed mirror above the bed, and the flowy light fixture.

6 This industrial chic princess room could easily stay with a girl from childhood to adulthood with some minor changes of accessories. The tufted headboard and ornate bed looks vintage and pops beautifully against that sea foam green wall.

7 Princess rooms don’t always have to include pink. Take this beautiful, mature bedroom full of soft neutrals. The star pieces in this space are the amazing light fixture and crown coronet.
8 This romantic bedroom boasts a gorgeous bed coronet in soft, muted tones. The wallpaper may be a bit much for some, but the space definitely captures a dreamy quality.
9By creating an alcove in this precious space and raising up the bed, the decorator has created lots of valuable storage. Finishing it off with some satin pink fabric gives it some princess flair.

10Another perfect example showing a princess room doesn’t have to include any pink. This little girl’s room can easily transition her from child to teen. That canopy is amazing!
