Stylish Little Girl's Bedroom by Martensen Jones

Lisa Martensen and Jan Jones put together this little girl's room and in my opinion, it is one of the prettiest I've seen online! I looked through their portfolio several times and there was no shortage of beautiful interiors! This ISN'T YOUR  TYPICAL girls bedroom...and perhaps that is what is so captivating to me. The use of blues & greens is always a great combo....what do you think?? For more of their work, visit their site here.

I like it, I think it's refreshing that it's not in pink! I don't have any daughters, though...

So my question is: do you have any suggestions for boys' rooms? I would love to have some ideas because my son will be getting a new room soon.

I couldn't agree more! There are so nice colors for girls, their bedrooms didn't need to be just pink! Just loved the photos Jen, you as always finding the most beautiful spaces to share with us!!!

When I looked at the first pic..of only the bed and side tables, I thought, "This can be a bedroom for me". I too love the green and blue combo against a white contrast.

I LOVE that is ISN'T pink! Green and blue can be TOTALLY feminine and this is the proof!

Jesse said...

What a lucky little girl to have such a fabulous space!

CDS said...

I love love love blue rooms for little girls. I think if I'm having a girl, I'll do the room in yellows and blues with pink accents...but not all pink.

Monica @ Beauty Parler said...

What a beautiful room! She can grow-up in that room & it won't look dated.

Mela said...

Oh my, I think this is the prettiest girl's room I've ever seen! I'll have to save this post and share. Love the Hermes blanket in the color theme. Wow.

LW said...

Ooh, I just did a post yesterday on blues and greens. I love this combo and how fun in a little girl's room!

Marta said...

Not my favorite colors, but this is stunning! Very well done.
I'm not a mother yet but I would love to have a baby girl and then make her a stylish, colorful and creative room like this, were she can play, dream and express joy.
But I would do same think if it were a boy!!! :)
Any excuses are good for decorating just a bit more!

Kerri said...

This is so gorgeous! What little girl wouldn't love a room as fabulous as this? Love at first sight. K xx

I love that it's not in the traditional colors. The blue and green are so fun and cool - what a lucky girl :)!!

rosiecampbell said...

What a wonderful bedroom. Great color choices. It's happy and whimiscal, yet sophisticated. Lucky little girl.

Design Darling said...

really cool room. i think it's important to create a space that children will grow into instead of feeling tied down to a certain theme. the color palette is perfection — i use some of the same colors on my blog!

thank you for commenting by the way :) i think it's really cool when established bloggers like you take the time to comment on beginners' like mine!

I've added a touch of grey though!

Kim Gibbs said...

Hi, I love using blue for girls too. But I have a problem. We moved into a new house and my daughter has the attic bedroom. It is large. It has a has a royal blue rug of very good quality. I'm talking "NY Yankee" blue! She 8 and likes to be different but I just don't know what to do with this blue. If it were lighter I could go in a number of directions. I've even thought about rainbow but ever fabric I find has a different blue, not even close. Also, theres no place for shelve or pictures because of the dormer roof. Any suggestions? Kim in NJ

Jen of Made By Girl said...

KIM:
Perhaps you could try doing a primary colors theme?? Basically similar to the colors in one of our custom Kids print here: http://madebygirl.com/product.php?sku=PC-14


I think that may work better...! :)
Hope that helps!
