Children’s room is always one of the most interesting objects for the embodiment of designer fantasies. Parents are happy to select colors, room themes, choose photo prints and other unusual accessories that cannot be found in adult rooms.
The boy’s room is always more strict, one might even say, courageous. And the girlish is very gentle and romantic (at least in most cases). Although in recent years, more and more often, parents say that their daughters do not have such doll-like characters and like to play pranks no less than boys. All this is naturally reflected in the interior..
What curtains to choose in the nursery
Let’s see how you can diversify the girl’s room with the help of textile design. We will talk directly about the curtains, and for ease of perception, we will divide them by age categories and characters:
Newborn girl’s room
In newborn babies, character can be seen almost immediately. Someone screams all day and actively demands attention, while someone quietly sleeps next to their mother, without causing any special trouble to others. If your girl is very calm, she is closer by nature to pastel colors and romantic design of curtains – with all kinds of draperies, ruffles and ruffles..
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 in him «provoke». Choose brighter colors for curtains. The design can also be simplified because more «live» in terms of color, the room 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, soothing combinations that don’t overwhelm your psyche. Some of the best in this regard are yellow, light gray, lavender and green..
If the design of the curtains seems too boring and monochrome to you, you can dilute it with a contrasting narrow tape stitched along the contour of the fabric. Or the entire curtain can be sewn in two parts – a wide darker strip at the bottom (80 cm from the floor, no more), and already up to the ceiling – a lighter fabric.
Girl’s room from 3 to 7 years old
At this age, the child behaves quite consciously. But since the formation of the 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 gentle and calm girl there is nothing better than her own «kingdoms» in your own room – when there are a lot of girly things and toys around. Textiles will also complement this setting: large prints are welcome on curtains and curtains.
Look around you. If the room is already quite bright – there are a lot of pictures and patterns on the walls, bright wallpaper, a blanket with patterns on the bed – then it is better to be more concise in the area of curtains. A simple form is suitable – even curtains on a metal cornice, so that the child himself is comfortable and he can learn to close the curtains from sunlight.
If the room is not oversaturated with details that are active for perception, with the help of curtains, the interior can be «paint» and add missing accents to it. Bright juicy colors are welcome in decoration, decor and textiles.
Girls from 3 to 7 years old, who have a very active character, need a special approach. Despite such a young age, it is already possible to bring up femininity in them. And if love for girlish habits and habits comes much later, even now the baby can be surrounded by appropriate things.
Delicate flying curtain fabrics, natural bleached and lightly colored linen, neat draperies, ties – all this will give the room airiness and elegance. As for the shape, even curtains can be hung. It is only imperative to make sure that the cornice is very tightly mounted and in no case is dangerous for the child if, during the game, he accidentally pulls on the curtains or steps on them.
Roman blinds can be considered the most versatile. They are convenient to use, and the child will definitely not rip them off the window while playing.
Girl’s room from 7 to 11 years old
Now that the child has overcome the boundary of the primary formation of character, he simply needs to be given freedom of expression. At this age, he can become a full-fledged advisor for you and will tell you himself which interior he prefers. 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..
Girls who are quiet and modest are likely to choose pastel colors in pink, purple, and turquoise. To avoid an unpleasant moment when a child can choose something completely inappropriate for your interior, offer him only those options that will obviously look good in the room. Shapes of curtains such as Austrian, Roman, curtains with hooks 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 to offer options with ruffles and lace curtains for organizing curtains. Window decoration should be dynamic too. The curtains should be able to be draped quickly and easily. For these purposes, Roman or roller blinds, perhaps Viennese, are best suited. In a word, the emphasis should be placed on the most functional options..
Today you have the opportunity to work with a huge range of color combinations and different textures. By applying one pattern to another, you can end up choosing a great composition and using several pieces of different fabrics when sewing, which is very important now.
In the nursery of a child of this age, you can safely use all kinds of historical motives, interesting prints and ornaments in the design of curtains. Pay attention to zigzags, paisley, diamonds, polka dot fabric and other simple, but very characteristic patterns.
Summing up all of the above, I would like to once again note those important details that must be taken into account when choosing curtains for a 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 one, the most acceptable and optimal option. And if you encounter difficulties – offer your child to help you choose between two or three options – their intuition is mesmerizing, so do not even hesitate – the child will choose the best option for himself and his room.
