Scrapbook Paper Frames
Create unique, feminine wall decor for your bedroom by purchasing a set of ornamental picture frames and filling them with images cut from printed scrapbook papers. Choose a paper that has multiple images on it, and cut out each image to display in a different frame. Check out stores like Archiver’s for their selection of papers, as they will have a wide variety to choose from. Make sure the colors of the papers you choose coordinate well with the color scheme of the rest of your room.
Ornamental Light Fixtures

Armoires were commonly used to store clothing before closets were a popular trend, and this piece of furniture is perfect for using to hold your bedroom television or extra clothes while serving a decorative purpose as well. Paint an old wooden armoire white and add appliques and new handles to it to give it a highly romantic, vintage look.
If you have a dresser in your room, hang a large, ornamental mirror above it for a classic, elegant look. Antique and thrift stores commonly sell these mirrors, and you can repaint the frame to coordinate with the rest of your decor. This will make make your walls look less empty and plain and will add to your romantic, feminine theme.
Candles are an extremely versatile element of decorating, as they can be used to decorate everything from your walls to your bedside table. Candles will also make your room smell great, so be sure to choose scents you find relaxing and soothing. Try to make sure all of your holders match one another for a more uniform, put together look. For example, if you are hanging gold colored sconces on your bedroom walls, use gold colored taper holders on your dresser or bedside table.
