Kids Decor: Little Mermaid Room

Little Mermaid Giant Wall DecalMy three year old placed both hands on her hips, raised her eyebrows and soundly informed me “I am a big girl now and need a big girl room.” How could I argue with her when she was correct? She had outgrown her nursery and was now ready to move into the big leagues of children’s room decor. I snatched her up in my arms and we headed off to the computer. Sitting her on my lap, we cruised the Internet together searching for the perfect theme.

After considering multiple ideas and colors, it became clear that only a Little Mermaid room would do. As a mother of three kids on a budget, I was determined to create the perfect room (at the perfect price) for my own sweet little mermaid.

I started with bedding. When I redecorate a room I prefer to make the bed a focal point and decorate everything else around it. I found the most gorgeous pink mermaid bedding set; however, the price tag caused me to hyperventilate. Luckily, with a bit of searching I found the set discounted on Kids Bedding and Linens and we were back in business and still on budget!

I loved the bright pink color of the comforter but didn’t want to turn the room into a “nightmare on pink street”. I decided the walls needed a totally different color. The blue and green accents from the throw pillows were perfect and from there I chose a soft pastel teal. The complimentary wall color did a great job of making the bedding “pop” and now the room was starting to really come together.

The walls were beautiful, but lacked decoration. I found a great wall décor kit from CDK Kids. My little one flipped for the life size mermaid decal that now hangs above her bed. As a special surprise CDK also had an amazing peel and stick wall border in deep blue with hints of green. It matched our pastel walls perfectly and was so easy to apply. I had sworn off wall borders years ago after many frustrated hours of trying to get them to stick to the wall and not to me. I was delighted at how quickly and easily this border went up. My little one was delighted with the effect and jumping up and down exclaimed her room looked as if it was really under the sea!

We finished the room with a mermaid rug and fuzzy throw pillows. I’m a mother, not an interior decorator but after surveying our work I had to admit, the room looked fabulous. As a final touch I wanted to put my daughter’s name somewhere in the room since she helped so much to create it herself. We went back to CDK Kids and had her name made in their fabric wall art letters. The quality was amazing and without a doubt it was the perfect finishing touch!
