The globetrotting owners of this west London townhouse employed a specialised team to restore its original mid-nineteenth century features, and create a home with a feeling of permanence after a lifetime of moving. The house is a tall, white stucco building that they wanted to work well for twenty-first-century family life. ‘We were determined to avoid beige banker chic, the owners explain.

In a spare room at a Belgian art collector’s London home by Feddy van Zevenbergen, the headboard is covered in a Jane Shelton fabric. The panelling was too damaged to restore, so Freddy lined the walls with a dark herringbone cashmere, which contrasts with the pale Italian marble of the bathroom behind.
The new kids’ collection for Zara Home is giving us some serious interiors inspiration. Not only do we love the dinosaur print bedding and sweet accessories but the sophisticated muted hues make a nice change from the primary colours seen in many of the high street ranges.

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.

If you want something cool and crafty for your own bedroom or are trying to make a teen girl’s bedroom the most awesome one ever, this is the project for you.
Since moving into her husband’s 300 year old Wiltshire farmhouse, designer Sarah Vanrenen has enhanced its quirky charm, with an adjusted layout and unexpected colours. Upstairs, the seven bedrooms are equally individual – one has a cheerful mixture of lilac and jade, another lime and sherbet pink. A spare room is decorated with green tones, with sari fabric is on the ottoman at the end of the bed.
Despite several attempts at finding the perfect paint colour, designer Fiona Parke and owner Bodil Blain settled on ‘New Silver’ from Sanderson. A soft gold headboard, chevron throw and pink patterned cushions add personality to the soft, oh so chic scheme.
The brief for this Paris bedroom was suitably intangible: she asked to be transported into another world. For decorator Jorge Estevez, who specialises in painting, it was vital his decorations were subtle so she wouldn’t tire of them, and also that there was ‘a feeling of the walls having been there before her’. The result is blissfully peaceful: in the bedroom, rough, eggshell-grey walls are painted with the most delicate of details to provide interest, and barely there friezes frame the doorway. The bedhead was made from an old door found in Brussels.
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.
Girls bedroom ideas, like these, reflect to a mother’s imagination. This is a traditional bedroom, done up predominantly in pink colour, generally associated with girls. The hearts on the wall paper and the curtains leave my heart fluttering. Again the pillow cover and the window treatment have been streamlined and is looking beautiful.
I was drawn to this space initially because of the use of pattern and colour in the cushions. The navy blue and mustard hues are an intriguing but very complementary pairing; with the pattern visually lifting the entire space. The warmth of the earthy tone-on-tone colour palette has soothing atmospheric qualities: perfect for a bedroom. But the showstopper is the seamless incorporation of industrial inspired design via the vintage wall lighting. An excellent illustration of how urban styling can be blended into a space without appearing too harsh or cold. Image credit
Give children’s rooms a grown up feel with a chic feature wall. In this scheme, a pink flock wallpaper injects instant glamour to the look. It’s teamed with a white day bed, which doubles up as a sofa – ideal for smaller schemes. Pink accents, like the rug and beanbag, mirror the wallpaper, while storage boxes are tucked under the bed, filled with toys and other bits.
With a wall-length desk and copious storage space, this teen bedroom is both stylish and totally functional. Accent pieces in soft primary colors bring cheery life to the classic white walls and muted carpet.
I love the Scandi simplicity of this girl’s bedroom. Loft rooms are like a dream for most children – they are cosy, snug and a bit different. With this lovely white backdrop you can create a calm and uncluttered space – the mixture of white, pink and blue accessories make the room so modern. Current trends for girls’ bedrooms are veering away from the pink saturation approach of latter years, and moving towards something more creative and meaningful. You can decorate a room like this with slightly more nursery-like accessories to begin with and then up-style when your girl grows older. This can see your child through baby, towards secondary school age – saving a fortune in decorating costs. On a final note, what’s not to love about the wonderful crepe lanterns and the cute lamb wall art?! Image Credit

We love this. The dark purple and grey colour scheme, industrial-style light fixture (another example of the bedside light being hung from above, rather than placed on a bedside table) and dappled feature wall all combine to create a beautifully moody aesthetic.
