Keeping the walls white in a girl’s bedroom will give you more decorating flexibility, which will help keep up with her constantly changing style. Have fun mixing and matching: Combine pink and red and introduce graphic prints and florals.
This cottage bedroom at ‘Driftwood’ in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand was a shoot location for Laura Thomas Linens ‘Organic Bed Linen Collection’. A space where time became irrelevant and the busy technological world we live in could be placed on hold. The coastal style was uncluttered and the use of straw roller blinds and natural light created an atmosphere of wilderness and calm. The incredible view could be enjoyed from the comfort of the bed. A perfect paradise to wake up to! Image credit
If your little girl has a knack for geography, consider girl’s bedroom wallpaper that has an educational flair. In this globetrotter’s room, a map of the world takes up the entire accent wall. Here, she can plan her next big adventure or be inspired to pick up a few library books on the eastern hemisphere. Plan the bedding and textiles around the colors found in the global designs.
Maximising light and space was essential to show the owner’s post-war art and sleek French art deco furniture to their best advantage in this elegant Pimlico flat. In the bedroom nineteenth-century photographs bought from Portobello Market hang above the bed, while built in bookshelves flank the windows.
The master bedroom in this petite, 90sq metre family home in London’s Chelsea is the work of designer Eve Mercier. The two Rothko-esque panels that flank the bed are not paint but vibrant silk, while the Fifties-style Danish bedside tables come from Chelsea Textiles (£498 each), a good source for chic and simple designs. On top of them are Forties Quindry lamps.
Trudi Ballard, press officer of Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler has decorated her elegant Marrakesh house in a combination of English country-house style with traditional Moroccan elements. A rug – a gift from a friend – brightens the scheme, while the raffia ceiling lights from Henry Cath are a unifying element that has been used in all the bedrooms. The light-filled house opens out from a courtyard with a traditionally tiled, cloistered walkway to one side from which bedrooms lead off, each with its own terrace.
Formed by turning four adjoining flats into a single living space, this north London conversion is filled with its owners’ impressive collection of art. A restrained, modern interior has been created by Tom Bartlett from Waldo works. The light is ‘Heracleum’ by Moooi. Tom suggested wallpapering a screen to stand behind the bed, rather than the wall, to add visual interest.
Think neutral bedrooms have to be boring? Then take a look at this masculine, relaxing, and anything-but-dull bedroom from architect and designer Patrick Brian Jones. When the palette is quiet, clever use of subtle pattern adds interest without overwhelming the small space. A folded throw blanket in a contrasting hue adds extra oomph to the foot of the bed.
White on white is the perfect space for the perfect night’s sleep. Crisp white bed linen, with the softest of pillows and the lightest of duvets. Cosy throws to keep those toes warm in the colder months. Pure and simple paired back detailing to showcase the natural beauty of the walls and floor that frame the space you are in. Uncluttered and calm, a sanctuary from the hectic world outside. Image credit

I love the cool, calm feeling of interior stylist Pella Hedeby’s bedroom, with its abundance of natural light, crisp white linens and beautiful monochrome accents. The cladding on the wall behind the end offers the perfect framed display units for artwork and scented candles, and I always love a low console table at the foot of the bed for displaying coffee table books and keeping rows of footwear organised.

We’d take silver over gold any day if it meant getting this sweet nursery. The soft colour is so serene but impactful design ideas like the ceiling stripes, navy wall and wall stickers give it real personality.
After visiting her friend Kathryn Ireland in France’s Tarn region, Anne Halsey bought a French farmhouse retreat there and enlisted the help of the decorator to create a relaxed space perfect for entertaining. Hints of pink add a soft touch a bedroom, in which ‘Toile’ by Kathryn M Ireland was used for the curtains, headboard and footboard; to one side is a free-standing bath.
This little girl’s room designed by member of The List Wickenden Hutley has a lovely calm palette of creams and whites. Elegant details such as the glass chandelier and the thick curtains are combined with classic toys such as a doll’s house and little car. The Lou Lou Ghost chairs, a miniature version of Phillipe Starck’s iconic Ghost design for Kartell, provide a very chic little drawing station.
A colorful polka-dot theme gets a sophisticated update with splashes of neutral brown. The cheery spots pop up on the bedding and walls (create a similar look with wall decals). Add in a few chocolate-brown elements, such as throw pillows, and the room takes on a more mature look, perfect for girls growing into adolescence.
The dream bedroom for teens, black comforter with large pink flowers on it and gold stars on the wall. Where did that comforter and sham set come from?? M daughter loves it and I cannot seem to find anything similar. Beautiful room!
The main bedroom of textiles designer Susan Deliss’ French country house is painted in the softest of blues – pink curtains in an Osborne & Little silk add a contrasting jolt of colour. A mid-century modern chair has been reupholstered in a fresh gingham and the bed quilt was hand-dyed with indigo.
The easiest way to incorporate a big mirror to your space? Find a body-length mirror and lean it up against the wall. No holes needed. Though, you’ll want to secure it with wall tacky for peace of mind.

Avast, ye landlubbers! (We love any excuse for pirate speak.) What kid wouldn’t love this pirate-inspired room, with its storytelling wall sticker and stars-and-stripes theme? However, when the pirate phase wanes, all these accessories can be removed to leave a smart navy bunk bed and wardrobe within a neutral scheme.
Ideally, a bedroom should be a clean, minimal space for you to unwind in, but I also love how creativity has crept into this Scandi interior. Full of personality, this scrapbook/shelving arrangement complements the DIY aesthetic of the room and accompanies the hanging bulb light fixture perfectly. Framed pictures are non-existent but instead, a quick fix of inspirational imagery taped to the wall is the ultimate effortless decorative feature. I like how black accents can be detected from the tape, light and bedside table; bringing all of the decorations together, but still harnessing that spontaneous element. Image credit

It’s hard to put your finger on what is so special about Ett Hem, a 12-room hotel in the embassy quarter of Stockholm. Ett Hem translates as ‘a home’, and it feels as though it has been lived in for ages, even though it only opened in 2012 – everything is in just the right place and gives the impression of being brand new, though ‘new’ here means in great condition rather than fresh out of the box. It is as if, simultaneously, the house has been repainted, the curtains laundered, the original furniture recently returned from the upholsterers, the bookshelves reordered, the plants recently pruned – the way most of us would like our own homes, if only we could find the time. Interior designer Ilse Crawford was responsible for the look. The wall cabinet in the kitchen was designed by Studioilse, and the company also sourced many antiques, including chandeliers lit by real candles.
For interior designer Charlotte Crosland and the owner of this reconfigured central London flat, a shared vision has resulted in generously comfortable rooms accented with splashes of colour. In this spare room, the vibrant decoration includes a yellow Volga blanket and a painted antique chest of drawers from Myriad.
Made.com founder Chloe Macintosh’s bedroom is an elegant combination of deep blue walls and oatmeal coloured stripes. For fabric with a similar feel try Romo or Le Gracieux, who both do a striped cotton with a similarly painterly feel.
• The proven fact that women and girls generally adore multi colors ideas in decorating their bedrooms, they like to use brilliant colours and lot of ornaments, as these colors give youthful sensation and female aspect in the girls’ bedrooms decorating ideas.
On paper, this room shouldn’t be lovely at all – tiny, with barely any room for even bed, and crammed with bright colours and clashing patterns. But in reality, this space, which I shot for my book Home for Now, is actually one of my favourite bedrooms I’ve ever worked in. This gorgeous sea green hue breathes life into this bijou space, whilst ingenious storage ideas, such as using a wall-mounted telephone table instead of a bedside unit, and hanging storage pockets on the wall, make best use of the available space. It proves that if you have courage in your design convictions, you can make anything work, whatever the challenge. Image credit
Relocating to Oxford after 15 years in Japan and Hong Kong, the owners of this modern Victorian house put together a team of experts to create a mostly open-plan layout full of intriguing design details to capture the imagination.
This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions.
If you need to compromise on a decorating style for the master bedroom, consider colors that are neither too masculine nor too feminine. Play with patterns and textures: florals on the walls, velvet on the headboard, and striped accents.
