A Princess Bedroom

Some of us want to be surrounded by the plush world of cuteness at all times--that means room decor that makes us feel special. There's nothing wrong with that! A princess bedroom is comforting, uplifting, and adorable. It's our little castle far up in the clouds. Here are some cute bedrooms, found on the web, to draw inspiration from.

Ready to make your room your own private escape?

Try going to yard sales and thrift stores to find vintage items, or inexpensive items that you can decorate & paint. You can find great things like old lamps, iron bed frames, and boxes of vintage trim & doilies.

Try going to stores like Target that carry bedding lines like Shabby Chic. Watch for sales and clearance items since they change stock so quickly.

Most online shops that sell linens and bedthings have items that will work well for a cute room or bedroom. It's up to you to decide. Just take a look around!

The simplest and most inexpensive of items can be turned in your own personalized pretties. Here are some tutorials:

Gothic Lolita in late Autumn

Too much photoshop? I think so, but try to think of it as an homage to Mana's missing nose.
