A children’s room is always one of the most interesting objects for the embodiment of design fantasies. Parents are happy to choose colors, themes of the room, choose photo prints and other unusual accessories that cannot be found in adult rooms. The boy’s room is always more austere, one might even say courageous. A girl is very tender and romantic (at least in most cases). Although in recent years, more and more parents say that their daughters do not have such puppet characters and like to play pranks no less than boys. All this, of course, is reflected in the interior..
Let’s see how to use the textile design to diversify the girl’s room. We will talk directly about the curtains, and for convenience, we will divide them by age categories and characters:
Baby Girl Room
In newborn children, the character is visible almost immediately. Someone screams all day and actively requires attention, while someone is quietly sleeping near his mother, without causing any particular trouble to others. If your girl is very calm, she’s by nature closer to the pastel gamut of colors and the romantic design of the curtains – with all kinds of draperies, assemblies and ruffles. Depending on what goals in raising a child you want to achieve, the design of the room also needs to be coordinated with them..
For example, if you like such a calm character, you only need to maintain it, using the previously listed color combinations and curtain design options.
If you want the child to be more active, these qualities can be “provoked” in him. For curtains, choose brighter colors. Design can also be simplified, because a room that is more “lively” in terms of color will most likely differ in style and become more modern.
The activity of a fidget girl, on the contrary, sometimes needs to be somewhat extinguished. Use calm, pacifying combinations that do not excite the psyche. One of the best in this regard can be considered yellow, light gray, lavender and green..
If the design of the curtains seems too boring and monochrome, it can be diluted with a contrasting narrow tape sewn along the contour of the fabric. Or the entire curtain can be sewn in two parts – a wider darker strip at the bottom (80 cm from the floor, no more), and even to the ceiling – a lighter fabric.
Room girls from 3 to 7 years old
At this age, the child behaves quite consciously. But since the formation of personality is still taking place (up to 5, the main character traits and values are formed), it is quite possible to direct the development of the child in the right direction. At the age of 3 to 7 years, for a tender and calm girl there is nothing better than this kingdoms ”in their own room – when there are a lot of girlish little things and toys around. Textiles will also complement this setting: large prints are welcome on curtains and curtains..
Take a look around you. If the room is already quite bright – there are a lot of paintings and patterns on the walls, bright wallpapers, a plaid with patterns on the crib – then in the curtain area it is better to be more concise. The form is simple – even curtains on a metal cornice, so that the child is comfortable and he can learn to close the curtains from sunlight.
If the room is not oversaturated with active perception details, with the help of curtains the interior can be “painted” and add missing accents to it. Bright, vibrant colors are welcomed in decoration, decor and textiles..
For girls from 3 to 7 years old, who are very active, a special approach is needed. Despite such a young age, femininity can already be brought up in them. And if the love for girl’s habits and habits comes much later, already now the baby can be surrounded by appropriate things.
Delicate flying curtain fabrics, natural bleached and slightly colored linen, neat draperies, ties – all this will give the room airiness and elegance. As for the shape, you can hang flat curtains. It is only necessary to ensure that the cornice is very tightly mounted and in no case be dangerous for the child if, at the time of the game, he accidentally pulls on the curtains or steps on them.
Roman curtains can be considered the most universal. They are convenient to use, and the child will definitely not tear them from the window during the game..
Room girls from 7 to 11 years old
Now that the child has overcome the boundary of the initial formation of character, he simply needs to be given freedom of expression. At this age, he can become a full-fledged adviser for you and will tell you himself which interior is more to his liking. Take your daughter with you to the selection of fabric for curtains, and she will be happy to show you which color she likes best. Quiet and modest girls are likely to choose a pastel palette in pink, purple, turquoise colors. To avoid the unpleasant moment when the child can choose something completely inappropriate to your interior, offer him only those options that obviously will look good in the room. Such forms of curtains as Austrian, Roman, curtains with pickups will look good.
Also, children love options for all kinds of short curtains, if the table is located directly in front of the window and there is no way to hang long curtains on the floor.
For a girl who is very mobile and active, it will be wrong for the organization of curtains to offer options with ruffles and lace curtains. Window design should also be dynamic. Curtains should be able to quickly and unobstructed curtains. For these purposes, Roman or roller blinds are best suited, possibly Viennese. In short, the emphasis should be on the most functional options.
Today you have the opportunity to work with a huge range of color combinations and different textures. When applying one sample to another, you can ultimately choose an excellent composition and use several pieces of different fabrics when sewing, which is very important now. In the children’s room of a child of this age, you can safely use all kinds of historical motifs, interesting prints and ornaments in the design of curtains. Pay attention to zigzags, paisley, rhombuses, polka dot fabric and other simple, but very characteristic patterns..
To summarize all of the above, I would like to once again note those important details that must be taken into account when choosing curtains in the girl’s nursery:
his temperament and character
overall room design
Walking from point to point, you will involuntarily come to just a few, or even to one, the most acceptable and optimal option. And if you encounter difficulties – invite the child to help you choose between two or three options – their intuition is bewitching, so do not hesitate – the child will choose the best option for himself and his room. Have a nice decoration!
