Ballet themed bedding is easy to find and a popular theme that suits both tots and tweens.
An enormous array of duvet covers and quilts can be found with the most delicious designs.
Ballet Decorating Ideas
Tutu’s and Ballet Slippers
With all the beautiful costumes that come with ballet and dance, decorating ideas for a ballet beadroom are halfway there.
One of the simplist and effective ideas is to display your little girl’s tutu and ballet slippers (or any other ballet costumes) on the wall.
Or try hanging her tutu on a personalized, monogrammed wooden clothes hanger with her ballet toe shoes on the floor in an attractive arrangement.
Quick, easy and inexpensive
Soft cream, powder pink, lilac and gold are great colours for a DIY ballerina themed bedrooms. Basically any pastel colours will work. That’s not to say that modern ballerina bedroom decorating ideas using fairy ballerinas bedding sets in bold colours would not be interesting and fun.
Tween girls might prefer a bolder look rather than fluffy pastel feel.

Summer tweets Bird mobile
I just love anything to do with birds when it comes to decor so I thought I’d share this bird mobile project with you that I can across today on The Red Thread.
I’ve featured a bird mobile before here, but this one is so cute too, and worthy of note.
Make it as a gift for a baby shower or create it with your child using up old scraps of fabric. A great rainy day project that can be done in stages if necessary for your own child’s room. Mind you it’ll be just as lovely in an adult room too or hanging in a tree on a warm evening amongst some fairy lights.
You will need
– Sicky tape
– PVA glue
– Brightly coloured fabric scraps
– Rattan cane hoops (from craft shops). 20 – 24cm [8 – 9.5 inches] in diameter
– 4 -5 cm [2 inches] diameter styrofoam balls – optional
– Embroidery thread
– Long needle
Introducing our latest DIY mural design for baby nurseries and little girls bedrooms.
These ‘oh so girlie’ topiary trees would look great either side of a door like below, or either side of her cot/crib or bed.
The paint by number mural kit comes with a personalised name banner for above the bed or anywhere in the room.
The beauty of this design is that it will look wonderful in a newborn baby nursery, but yet will not be out of place as she grows into a little lady

The competition is now closed for the Wallables Nursery Wallart GIVEWAY
For those of you who haven’t heard about Wallables, let me enlighten you…
they are the cutest
children’s wall art you ever did see!
Wallables are 3 dimensional sculpted wall décor products made out of soft polyurethane foam, whose bright colours and soft textures not only look great as a decor feature in your baby nursery, but they also encourage your baby to touch and explore the different surfaces, teaching your baby to interact with their invironment.
Wallables also come in a new Alphabet series.
When touched Wallables play music, teaching babies cause and effect’.
This 3d nursery wall art is made of a lightweight material which is soft and flexible and allows them to be placed above cribs or beds without any worries.
Wallables are very safe and have passed both the ASTM and CE toy safety standards for all countries.
I’m planning to work on some new interactive mural ideas that combine hand painted murals you do yourself with Wallable characters and Alphabet letters.
Watch this space or leave a comment on interactive ideas or themes you might like to see me create.
The lovely people at Wallables are giving away..
‘Dotty the Dragonfly‘ from the ‘Soft Smilies collection’
