Pink may be the realm of princesses, but a girl's room doesn't have to look like a powder puff. Combine a bright shade of pink with yellow, lime green and other bright accents for a feminine but strong look. Bright pink and orange, a favorite girl's combination, looks great with pretty white furniture. Layer multiple shades of pink for a look that is both soothing and uplifting. Dusty pink with neutrals such as beige or taupe can create a romantic mood that stays grounded instead of looking "fluffy." Brighter or richer shades of pink can be used with black furniture and accessories to create a sophisticated look.

Purple, like pink, is a classic girl's color; it can take a room's look in many directions, depending on the shade or shades you use. For a romantic look, join purple with soft, billowy white fabrics and white furniture. For a cheery modern or country look, combine purple with touches of yellow or bright green. Bright purple with black accents can create a striking contemporary mood.

Blue, traditionally considered a boy's color, can be made to look feminine or elegant when paired with furniture and accents in either white or contrasting or complementary colors. In particular, soft or light blues can provide a pretty backdrop for images of flowers, butterflies, rainbows and other artwork and accessories.

The guidelines for blue generally hold true for green as well. There are many shades from which to choose, and looks can range from soft and tranquil to bright and energetic.

Many girls love orange, and this cheery blend of yellow and red brings energy into a room. Orange with pink is a popular combination that can be used in soft shades or energetic bright shades.

For a girl's bedroom color scheme with staying power, stick with a white or neutral shade on the walls and add pops of color through rugs, window treatment and accessories. Neutrals create a tranquil backdrop for furnishings in a wide range of styles, and looks can be changed without having to repaint the entire room.

Wall murals, stencils, stripes and other touches are popular in girls' rooms. Although many younger girls like themes such as cartoon princesses, more artistic murals with trees, flowers and butterflies won't be outgrown as quickly.
