The attic bedroom in printmaker Cameron Short’s restored Georgian house has an austere beauty to it. The whitewashed walls are dissected by exposed beams and the battered wooden floorboards are left uncovered. A wide gauge gingham bedspread adds a touch of country charm.
These wall stickers are cut from high quality transparent vinyl. No white edges.Stickers are fully removable and repositionable however the stickiness are reduced each time you resuse them.Easy to app…

If you don’t have room for a four-poster bed then a pelmet like this one by Paolo Moschino can be a creative alternative. The linen curtains are made from ‘Nyvelle Oyster’ by Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam. The clean, straight lines and border of blue stands out against the dark walls.
I absolutely love this bedroom and it has actually inspired my own bedroom makeover. The bold use of indigo is classy and sophisticated and creates a sleep-inducing atmosphere. Blue is a very calming and soothing colour to use in the bedroom and can aid restful sleep. The use of chunky knits, Damask prints and patterned cushions adds to the cosy feel of this room.

I’m a huge fan of simple and functional Scandinavian style with a monochrome and neutral colour palette. This bedroom is quite minimalist, but at the same time has everything you need to relax. I prefer all white bedding (linen bedding is my favourite!) which is in this bedroom combined with some black pillowcases to add contrast against the white wall. I love to bring some warmth into the monochrome interior by adding natural materials (like wood) and also green plants – both of which have been used in this bedroom. Image credit

You can paint the ceiling in any bedroom, of course, but it’s an especially fun touch for a child’s bedroom. This girl’s room, found on JWS Interiors, is a pretty space filled with great touches like the chandelier, hanging chair, and shaggy rug, but it’s the circus-tent stripes on the ceiling that really kick up the whimsy.
Create an enchanted sleep space with this quilted bedding, inspired by the subtle floral patterns of vintage lace. Boasting pintuck accents, the quilt is a welcoming layer. Designed with world-renown fashion designer Monique Lhuillier, it marries …
I love this bedroom – it was one of the first I designed and the brief was to create an elegant and serene sanctuary. The soft Cornforth White walls combined with the decadent wallpaper by Tapet Café really do complement one another and create a very soothing mood. The Vogue print adds the perfect ‘pop’ of colour and the large mirror reflects a lot of light into the space. The chandelier by Verner Panton completes the look and adds decadence. Image credit
Kids love to climb up into a raised bed but this option will also create extra storage space underneath or, as in this case, a little play area, decorated here with a highly textured rug and sweet wallsticker.
Add some sparkle to a princess-themed room with a starry wallpapered ceiling. This room’s blue ceiling, as well as small pops of powder blues, lavender, and bright coral, breaks up a mostly pink color scheme. Statement light fixtures above the bed give extra glamour that can carry into teenage years.
In this stylish children’s bedroom designed by Henri Fitzwilliam-Lay, a fixed and shaped box pelmet with curtains in a pale blue fabric is a smart choice as it will not be quickly outgrown when the children become teenagers. The overall effect is modern and elegant.
Be bold with a Fireman Sam style red and yellow scheme. Contemporary fitted furniture makes the best use of the space, creating clever storage but also strong lines, giving it a modern geometric feel.
The main bedroom of Ptolemy Dean’s Sussex newbuild is decorated in shades of blue and grey. This soothing scheme is finished with touched of dark wood. The curtains are in a floral fabric by G P & J Baker.
Velvet cushions and a spray-lacquered Danish desk from Ebay add to the blue theme, while the Zak + Fox fabric on the headboard provides a strong contrast. Animal motifs and a small workspace make this a perfect kid’s bedroom.
Architect Francesca Oggioni had to set aside her rationalist principles when she was planning a new layout for her listed house in west London, so it would work as a family home, workspace and backdrop for an extensive art collection. What do you do if your aesthetic is Italian modernist but you have just purchased a six-floor Grade II-listed Victorian town house in west London? This was the dilemma that faced Italian architect and interior designer Francesca Oggioni six years ago when she purchased her home with her Belgian husband, a hedge-fund manager, photographer and art collector.
Lettering on the wall and a stellar light fixture give a more youthful feel to this stylish bedroom in designer Sarah Stewart-Smith’s Herefordshire family home. The small space is made to feel bigger with a curtain separating the cosy bed area from a seating area with a desk, with the grey colour scheme continued throughout.
If floor space is limited but you have higher ceilings, consider adding a loft or platform for your sleeping area with storage or seating underneath. This isn’t an option for everyone, but for those who don’t mind literally climbing into bed, this layout can completely transform a space.
all these rooms are SUPER cool. Awesome creativity! But next time, it’d be great if maybe you guys could design a room thats, well, more affordable looking/ realistic. I mean, c’mon, we’re teenagers who dont really have THAT much extra cash on hand to use on hand haha. And maybe ‘simpler’ room sizes. The loft one is super cool, but its not like everyone has a loft in their room. . . . awesome ideas though!
If you listen to fashion guru and creative director of J Crew, Jenna Lyons, leopard print is a neutral. And one that we think works pretty well in a child’s bedroom. When combined with caramel and cream hues it creates a warming but fun scheme.
Brighten up a neutral children’s room with splashes of colour. Chunky pink letters are mounted on the wall and delicate butterflies hang from the ceiling, giving the scheme an extra girly touch. Keep clutter to a minimum with a storage unit in playful colours.
This is a beautiful girl’s room. The room has been done in child friendly and soft colours. Alphabet decals are put on the wall perhaps to satisfy the concept of play way learning. There is colour everywhere to hold the interest of my little princess so that everything around her fascinates her.
