If you’re considering florals but don’t want an overly feminine scheme, here’s your inspiration: a fresh print combined with contemporary accessories in strong yellow and green hues. The base of whites and greys keeps it sophisticated too.
The owners of this Somerset country house had not anticipated taking on such a large project, but their careful renovation enhanced by modern decorative touches has resulted in a smart, yet comfortable, forever home. This kid’s bedroom has floral wallpaper, a pastel palette and a simple white bed frame, allowing mixed patterns to work well together. The grey and cream rug is ‘Cora’ from The Rug Company. The scheme is elegant yet far from dull.
Faringdon House in Oxfordshire was once home to ‘the mad boy’ Lord Berners, the inspiration for Lord Merlin in Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love. Now in the hands of his descendant Sofka Zinovieff, the character and eccentricity of the home and its history is lovingly preserved.
wow, thanks for this post. I like the one with the stairs. It’s almost the same picture I have in mind years ago but never given a chance to have it in real picture. Anyway, happy to drop by and see your posts.
This sweet attic bedroom, which belongs to designer and House & Garden contributor Ben Pentreath, can be found at the top of his gently restored Georgian country house. The twin beds sit nicely in the small space and the cream panelling brings light to the room.

The couple could have turned to Dominic’s mother, design doyenne Jane Churchill, but opted instead for friends Bunny and Emma. ‘At that stage, Mum and Claire did not know each other that well and I did not want Claire to feel she had to go along with Mum’s suggestions,’ says Dominic. ‘It was our first family home and I wanted it to be just about us.’
Designers Cécile Figuette and Frédéric Bonnin of French brand Minakani Lab create wallpaper and panoramas that are larger-than-life, with motifs that repeat randomly and compositions that are light and airy. Printed in Paris, the wallpaper is printed to the client’s wall dimensions and some can be adapted to your own colour scheme. ‘The Wild’ (pictured here) is inspired by Douanier Rousseau and illustrated by hand in black and white. The entire wall decor is priced at €900, or is available in three parts for €300 each.
Tasked with reinventing a conservative Park Avenue apartment, New York-based designer Sandra Nunnerley has created a modern, relaxed space that has an aura of calm. In the main bedroom, the headboard is in Holland & Sherry ‘Spectator’ fabric, with Mike and Doug Starn’s ‘Structure of Thought’ print hung above it; the doorway to the left leads seemlessly through to a dressing room to leave the main room uncluttered. Sandra describes the result as ‘timeless luxury and refinement’, without sacrificing a sense of modernity.
A smattering of black stars shimmy across the walls and out the window in this modern kids’ room. It looks especially eye-catching painted on a brightly coloured backdrop. The idea also works well using animal footprints, which you can dot along the floor and over furniture.
In a girl’s bedroom with plenty of bold colors and prints, scale back the wall color to invite serenity into the space. Look for a white with undertones of a color used in the room. Here, a white with a pink cast provides a break in the action while blending with the room’s cheeky pink accents. The little girl’s bedroom furniture provides a stark difference to the pastel walls.
Sometimes, just one small detail which can bring a room together. In this case, the studs surrounding the bed’s cream headboard draws the eye, making the furniture the focal point of the room in the absence of any wall art. A perfect alternative for walls (or homes) where you can’t hang pictures.
Everything is so cute , simple and bright. I want to ask if kids blinds is still popular? My little girl want princess castle printed blinds like this https://www.amara.com/luxpad/childrens-bedroom-ideas/ . If it’s nice or better I should buy a normal one color blinds? Also I want to ask from where you bought that bed with curtains? It looks very cozy
When you’re looking for dorm inspiration for sophisticated room designs, we have plenty to offer. Mixing and matching black and white colored comforters, sheet sets and shams for a customized look creates a modern space where you can relax. A delicate bed of roses, striped designs and polka dot detailing is ideal for a dorm room. Striped rugs and throw blankets that you can layer on chairs or beds helps you craft a totally personalized look throughout the room. Adding velvet bow pillows in white, black or soft pink colors is fun for accentuating the overall theme of the room.
The refurbishment of this central London townhouse was a case of sisters doing it for themselves; interior designer Amanda Baring’s sister is the owner. A painting of a party dress hangs in a frame (see how to do your own version here) while curtains made from ‘Les Chiens’ cotton from Clarence House add a playful note to the bedroom, which mixes an array of print and pattern.
i’m 13 and really dont like any of them some are really childish because teens want there bedrooms to look older by the way i’m not being rude its just what i think and the rest are just horrid yuck ew
The stuff of dreams. Author and designer Paul Golding spent seven years restoring this this exquisite 18th century palazzo in Malta. ‘I couldn’t resist its romantic decay!’ Built by the distinguished Maltese architect Francesco Sammut, the bedroom is stenciled with a pattern copied from a Carmelite convent in Medina. The chandelier is from Julian Chichester, while the magnificent gesso and silver gilt bed and table were commissioned from Brighton-based furniture maker Lincoln Cato.
Give a simple four-poster bed a sweet update with girly curtains and bedding. Pink fabrics keep the scheme girly, while the off-white walls mean that it can be updated as the child grows. Opt for a trundle bed for extra space when friends come to stay, and display their favourite toys proudly in a white-painted shelving unit.
In a valley on the Waddesdon Manor estate sits Flint House, an award-winning example of contemporary architecture commissioned by Jacob Rothschild. David Mlinaric, a long-time collaborator of the Rothschilds, helped with the interiors, acquiring the odd new piece of furniture and dipping into the Waddesdon storeroom, known as ‘the Pink Shed’, for others. In the main bedroom a feeling of cosseting warmth has been created in this otherwise white interior by painting two walls a rich teal and adding a large dark carpet in a sumptuous fabric. The sceme is tied together by the dark valance, while a convex mirror by Collier Webb adds sparkle and reflects the landscape.
Jewel tones are excellent choices for tween decor since they evoke femininity as well as a sense of glamour. Consider adding touches of gold in an up-to-date manner with satin brass hardware. Much more subdued than polished brass, the satin finish is soft and refined, and works especially well with colors such as purple, green, red and turquoise.
I love how Martyn Lawrence Bullard combines vibrant colours with serenity and calm in this bedroom; a perfect setting for colour lovers, who want to wind down in a relaxed setting after a hard day’s work. The different textures, such as the fur throw and carpet provide a great contrast to the mirrored bedside tables, which makes the room and interesting. I also love the ethnic element (Ikat cushions) combined with the ‘Modern Glamour’ style, which gives the room a new dimension. And how great is the coffee table at the end of the bed? I don’t like bedside tables, that are full of books and magazines, so this provides a great stage option that prevents cluttering the room and at the same time looks great! Image credit
Wooden flooring can give a clean, spacious look, but unless you have underfloor heating, carpeting is the cosier option, bearing in mind that you’ll be walking around in bare feet at least some of the time. Another point to consider, if you’re a light sleeper or live in a neighbourhood where it can be noisy at night, is that carpets can help to muffle sounds, whereas wooden floors won’t. That said, you can always achieve a happy medium with polished floorboards strewn with luxurious, toe-friendly rugs.
