Not sure who is more excited about this room being finished, me or my daughter. Lots of DIY and re-working what I currently had made this entire new room happen for only $350! We're both pretty please with how it turned out :)
I wanted a simple clean base that I could easily build upon and change as my little one does. I was inspired by mostly white rooms with fun pops of color, and looked at a lot of adult spaces for ideas that would have staying power as she got older.
Not sure if there's a particular style for this room. In most of my decorating, I like a traditional base with modern fabrics to make it look fresh and up to date. I took the same approach in this room.

Love how the DIY headboard turned out, and having her great-grandmother's furniture (dresser, wingback chair, and floor lamp) updated to work in the space.
You don't have to spend a lot to get a great look. Rework items you already have, it doesn't have to be a kid's items to work in a kid's room, try making it yourself (you'll surprise yourself).
