Beginning a successful pink and zebra or leopard print base for your girl's bedroom can be a bit daunting when you consider the finished product: a really cool, ideally appointed tween-to-teen bedroom. There's layering to think about, colors, textures, shapes and theme.

But really, I recommend decorating in steps beginning with your room's biggest piece (usually the bed). Themed zebra striped and pink comforter sets like the one will 'set the stage' announcing your room's personality and defining its pink and zebra theme. While there's plenty of matching pink and zebra accessories I don't recommend using too many like pieces; doing so dilutes the effect of your main element: the comforter.
The model room here illustrates the 'dilution' I'm referring to. See how the matching accessories mirror the bedding? It's the 'seen one, seen 'em all' effect. There's nothing unique about the wall art, window valance and accessories. Ideally, each piece should stand uniquely on its own and lend to the room's total look, not compete with it.
Zebra stripes are the strong element you need to make a big statement and capture the eye without a lot of fuss; just make up the bed ~ easy peasy!

Accessories are a fun way to add to your room's decor, define your theme and add that finished look you're after.
But going overboard with a zebra prints will result in a dizzying array of 'stripes gone wild'. Resist the urge to splurge on all those cute 'gotta have' zebra stripes. Corral the cluttered look from the start of any addition that upsets the balance in your space. You do want to layer 'like-minded' pieces but do so with caution.
here's the definition of the process: Layering is the process of adding related pieces that work well together and lead the eye pleasingly around the room.
Remember, using too many stripes will result in a hypnotic, spell~like look and feel. Not soothing.
These pieces will work well to support your theme without creating a cluttered bedroom vibe. Look for decor with zebra stripes that are used sparingly, like solid window panels like those below for best results. Less is more!

Going Plain Can Be a Good Thing!

Two Solid Sheer Window Panels in Many Colors ~ Under $10
As I've been going a bit overboard in my 'overdone' warning, I'll be brief (if that's at all possible):
These hot pink window panels have the solid look you need to create harmony and avoid an overkill of zebra stripes. They're great for allowing filtered sunlight to stream into your room and striking enough to catch the eye. PLUS, they're downright cheap ~ as in low cost at under $10 for the pair!
Too, the panels are available in tons of tween and teen-friendly colors (just click on the image). Using large-sized solids to balance your printed pieces makes great sense and will lead to a successful, cohesive look you're after.
The Planning Phase: Balancing Pattern & Plain with Zebra Print & Hot Pink Panels and Comforter Sets

Being Successful in decorating is achieved with balance. Really, it's not as complicated as some algebra problems teens have to solve, rather just being careful with zebra prints and solid pinks will do the trick.
The model room here on the left is a prime example of balancing busy, themed pieces and nondescript decor.

These window panels are solid pink and take their color from the comforter. The result is a smooth transition for the eye to follow and 'digest'. Use busy pieces on opposing walls instead of side~by~side.
Experiment on paper or take a picture of the wall with a helper holding up wall art before you commence to drilling holes.
A little forethought goes a long way in decorating.
Grounding Your Space - Dramatic Hot Pink & Zebra Bedding Set
Consider floors and ceilings when decorating for a total, pulled~together pink and zebra ambiance. Bare floors can be warmed up easily with area rugs 'grounding' your space.
Remember, don't overwhelm your bedroom with too many zebra stripes. A larger room can support a bit more of the zebra influence but I recommend the solid pink rugs so your bedding shines.

The darker comforter set here is ideal for teen girls. The richer pink hue is more dramatic rather than cute. If you're planning to use the hot pink and zebra theme for a few years, I recommend this set over the more juvenile bedding.
Pink is one of the easiest colors to work with; you can pile on the pink in any number of shades without worry of being ghastly. Pink is also a very forgiving color and you're wise to use it liberally in your tween or teen's bedroom.
I suggest bathing walls in the same pink shade you've pulled from the bedding. Or decide how light or dark you want your walls and go with it.
