Weathered shutters add a touch of shabby chic flair to this cozy gray and white bedroom from Décor Gold Designs. It’s easy to work a vintage vibe into even a small bedroom – use an antique chest as a nightstand or footboard, set an old door in place of a headboard, or adorn your walls with framed vintage embroidered handkerchiefs, maps or botanical designs.
The concrete floors and exposed brick painted in white may create a cool warehouse feel but the nonchalantly styled books and pictures, as well as the texured bedding and soft throws keep the scheme from being sterile.
The owner of this family home in Chelsea has a collection of Fifties, Norwegian abstract-expressionist art; instead of basing his scheme around the colours in the paintings, designer Stephen Eicker cleverly mirrored the rich shades with layers of vibrant fabrics and thickly applied paints instead. The vibrant fabric used as wallcovering in the spare room is by Claremont.
When deciding on bedroom colour ideas, you should remember to consider not just the walls and floor, but also the furniture and choice of bedclothes. Simple magnolia walls, for instance, can be offset with ebony wood-tones and dark fabrics for a cool, stylish look, or with bold, vibrant fabric choices to create an overall design that’s young and funky. Whatever colours you choose, it’s important to remember that you have to sleep in your bedroom, so make sure the overall effect is peaceful and conducive to relaxation.

I would describe this bedroom as ‘cosy contemporary’ and it’s the sort of space I could relax in at the end of a busy day. It is fairly minimalist, but not as stark as a white or grey bedroom, with an on trend geo pattern and a soft colour palette, with some warmth from the brass lamp and wooden side table. I also love the white painted floor boards and think it is a look that could be quite easy to re-create. Image credit
Moving from a tall town house to a west-London mews enabled interior designer Caroline Riddell to enjoy a more open-plan way of living. Upstairs in Caroline’s daughter’s bedroom, ‘Vertical Stripe’ wallpaper from Timorous Beasties lines the walls. It’s a masterclass in space management.
Planes, trains and automobiles: the duvet covers, wall stickers and underbed boxes all draw on this theme. Good storage ensures the room is kept tidy but a simple chalk/pin board allows for a little creativity and a place to display treasured possessions.
This bedroom, belonging to designer Harriet Anstruther’s 22-year-old daughter, continues the stripped back theme of the restored farmhouse while adding sophisticated elements such as the chandelier and canopy bed.
The space might be compact but as a snug sleeping spot it has everything it needs and is given real style with design-led textiles and accessories. To create the same effect as the walls, try horizontally panelled wall cladding.
It doesn’t take much to set an exotic style, so a small room is perfect for a global look like the Moroccan showstopper here. Just three elements – the silver pendants, the silver pouf, and the fantastic bed – are all it takes. If none of those are within your reach, consider adding an exotic throw pillow or two to your bed.
If you’re in the market for a new bed, consider a bed with drawers underneath for extra storage. If space is so limited that drawers may not open easily, use decorative bins under your bed for additional storage. We love milk crates and other woven baskets that hold up well and look great doing it.
We love this look because of the fresh take on what could potentially be a period interior. The yellow wall brings it bang up-to-date, freshening the space and bringing the whole room to life. The antique touches of mismatched frames, the oversized wooden bed, stripped back floorboards and the old chandelier contrast perfectly with the statement wall giving it oodles of character. The picture rail breaks up the room giving it plenty of height but the patchwork quilt, rug and cushions keep the room cosy. Image credit

The spare room in this Georgian town house in Ludlow designed by Caroline Harrowby is papered in ‘Alderney’ from Colefax and Fowler. This adds interest to the space, which is light and airy – a fitting style for a small bedroom.
An organized and clutter-free bedroom doesn’t have to consist of clear storage containers and rows of school-style cubbies. A tall and simple bookshelf consisting of both drawers and shelves can showcase her favorite toys and collectibles, while keeping small trinkets safely stored. Design by Susie Fougerousse
The key to creating a cosy space? Three words: layering, layering, layering. Whether it’s pattern, colour or texture (all three is even better) more is more. To keep it from looking messy, make sure to repeat colours throughout the room and ensure there’s plenty of solid colour to break up the scheme.
I am 13 and have to share a room with my si. She is 19 and we have TOTALLY different styles. So there is just another example of ho people have different tastes. I personally like the second one the thirteenth. My sister however likes the last one. But i do agree most people dont have the space OR money. I think that they should do more realistic and affordable room. Sorry if I sound rude or snobby but that is teh first and surely the last thing that me and my sis agree on
Bedrooms aren’t just for sleeping anymore. This hanging bubble chair provides a unique place to read and study, as well as the girls only ladder-accessible secret hideout.
