When else in your life can you have a bed that looks like a boat? So indulge your child’s fantasies with a themed room; chic pale blue walls with red and white accessories keep this nautical room uniformed and smart without being garish or twee.
This is a photo of my 8 year old son’s room, styled and photographed by myself. It’s a modern Breton themed bedroom. I styled this bedroom in the autumn to bring a fresh, bright and happy feel to the room. I made sure that a cosy feel is maintained, with the soft throw on the bed for bedtime tucking in and the cushion for casual lounging. Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends. Image credit
Give a country cottage bedroom a wash of white paint and their odd angles characterful corners come in to their own. A Jacob’s ladder accentuates the double-height proportions of a spare room at Slackwood Farm in Lancashire.
Proof that grown-up taste can co-exist with kids’ rooms? Bodil Blain’s daughter’s bedroom in Bayswater (designed by Fiona Parke) which features a Damien Hirst artwork above the Kelly Wearstler-inspired bed.
Keep her stylish space organized by adding simple wall shelves. Narrow shelves in various sizes create visual interest in a bedroom and offer a simple way to showcase books, artwork and other knickknacks. Small wicker baskets provide an extra organizational element and help keep the desk clear and clutter free. Design by HGTV fan mblanchette

Maria Speake of Retrouvius relaid the ‘slightly unimaginative’ oak flooring of this home to transform the basement into a cheerful playroom for the kids. The mix of mid-century influences with bright colour is proof that grown-up tastes can still be child friendly.
On the four-poster bed in her ‘mix and match’ West Sussex manor house, Sophie Conran has an antique quilt from Garden House Antiques in Petworth, which specialises in English and American patchwork quilts from 1800 to 1920, and antique English and French textiles. The period print is paired with neutral paint colours from Farrow & Ball – ‘Slipper Satin’ for the walls, and ‘Lamp Room Grey’ on the woodwork.
When renovating this Renovated Farmhouse, Maria Speake of Retrovious kept an eye out for continuity between rooms. For example, here in the spare room the walls are lined with ‘Sheep’ from The Art of Wallpaper thus echoing the animal theme of the children’s bathroom.
White bedding provides a crisp contrast to the chintz in the Lake Room of Bowood house; the curtain pelmet is in a traditional swagged style. In 1987, Fiona undertook the task of redecorating much of the house. Having trained at Colefax and Fowler, she brought with her the influence of its quintessential English country-house style.
Although carpet is usually the most popular flooring choice for bedrooms, it’s hard to keep clean in high-traffic rooms. Rather than going through the motions of having carpet professionally cleaned yearly, it may be a better investment to simply replace wall-to-wall carpet with resilient vinyl plank flooring. Averaging less than $1.50 per square foot, vinyl plank is easy to install by cutting to size with a utility knife, then staggering each plank to create a pattern. As opposed to carpet, which stains easily, vinyl can simply be wiped clean with a sponge.
I think it is pretty low of you to post that you are giving a certain number of hacks and when we click on them we only get about half. To get the rest we have to share, REALLY? Next thing you know, we will have to pay for them. I have seen most of them and the ones I haven’t will eventually come up with no requirements. It’s not like you came up with these yourself and have exclusive rights to them,
These girls bedroom ideas stresses upon extravagant use of singular colour, thus defining the mood and personality of the occupant. Lilac gives a royal inclination to the room. The shear curtain in white dropping down from a hanging lilac flower against a lilac background gives way to an interesting concept. The white furniture looks remarkable and the colour white leaves a serene impact on the atmosphere.

personally i think they should be more realistic about the room sizes most kids dont have a room the size of these. and i personally dont like have of these rooms they look to grown up or kinda kidish.
We’ve been very (no pun intended) impressed with the quality of furniture at shops like Very.com and Littlewoods of late – don’t dismiss them for good design. This bed (French Kiss) from the latter was reduced to just £184 in the sale. The bed curtains are Yolo Stripe (£14 a metre at John Lewis) while the rug (Lappljung Ruta) is £55 at Ikea.
As the pictures on the wall suggests, this has to be a lovely teenager’s space. The colour blue is instrumental in giving a soothing and calm impact to teenage excitements. The upholstered headboard with the mirrored night stand alongside gives a classy look to the room. The window treatment is another feather in the cap!
A pink floral bedroom makes an elegant scheme in this neoclassical pavilion Bradwell Lodge. It is aptly named the ‘Pink Room’. A bold Bernard Thorp ‘Brimble’ fabric has been used on the walls, bed and blind, adding character and playfulness. The curtain over the bed adds height, and gives the room a cosy den-like feel. Designed as a guest room, we think the ideas could easily be transferred to a child’s bedroom.

This gorgeous scheme triumphs in its simplicity. Soft whites and creams, with feminine details like the tissue pom poms and a bone inlay bedside table, create a dreamlike environment. The large mirror leant, rather than hung adds to the relaxed chic effect.
The colour coral is back in vogue. According to Josephine Bennett, head of design at Laura Ashley, warm tones of sable with touches of coral give a subtle and slightly less feminine feel to this colour scheme. We like.
Unless you have a budget that permits new furniture every few years, you’ll want to choose a bedroom set that grows up with your daughter. The room shown here is delightful now — what young girl wouldn’t love all the polka dots and the wonderful dog poster? — but the basic white furniture will have no problem handling a more mature palette, bedding, and accessories when the teen years arrive.
The children’s bedrooms in Keith McNally’s Notting Hill home allow for storage and organisation – as well as charming touches – like this Toadstool lamp, £55 at White Rabbit England. The East Coast tongue-and-groove panelling and plaster walls aren’t restricted to the kids’ spaces, they’re a theme throughout all of the property (see how he achieved the aged look here).
An attic conversion makes for a perfect guest room. The scheme is simple but elegant with minimal but impactful pieces of furniture and furnishings. A sofa allows guests a little chill out time away from the rest of the house. Be careful though, they may not want to leave.
