Another great colour combination, the fresh apple green walls are set off perfectly by the rich raspberry curtain. Both colours are referenced in the pretty rug and bed linen, but furniture is kept uniformed so as not to over complicate the scheme.
Decorating with multiple colours can be an intimidating task for even the most seasoned of designers. No matter how genuine our initial enthusiasm for venturing across to the other side of the paint chart, it is all too easy to get cold feet and talk ourselves out of being more courageous with colour, settling instead for safe, neutral schemes. Colour, however, shouldn’t be used exclusively to make a statement. Gabby Deeming set herself the challenge of creating four palettes from the Mylands paint range. Each palette is made up of four shades that would sit together harmoniously in a space, and work beautifully with textiles and wallpapers. The walls are painted in ‘Piccadilly’ and ‘Palmerston Pink’, £34.66 for 2.5 litres matt emulsion, while the floor is in ‘Honest John’, £21.65 for 1 litre water-based eggshell, all from Mylands.
A black and white colour scheme isn’t usually associated with kids’ rooms but, if your daughter’s not a girly-girl, a monochrome palette, accessorised with bright hues in green or red, is a great alternative to pinks.
Emphasize a soaring ceiling with a showstopping theme. In this playful room, alternating stripes of sky and baby blues creates a tentlike ceiling treatment. A fun theme like this makes room for cool beds for girls. A classic four-poster bed has long-lasting style, while freestanding furniture—such as the desk, chair, and bookshelf—can be replaced or upcycled as she grows older.
Your choice of headboard can really set the tone for the style of the room. This quirky, black armchair-style board is complemented with unique lighting and furniture, and almost unexpected pops of colour.

The bedroom of this London townhouse is the work of Amanda Baring, who designed it for her sister, the owner. The neutral hues keep it calm and warm, while a collection of black and white etchings decorate the walls.
The spare bedroom in this glamorous chalet in the French Alps was designed by Kate Earle using a neutral palette and myriad clever details. Case in point: the painted frieze and grouping of wicker mirrors above the bed, which were bought at the Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair.
As a teenage girl, I can honestly say that the only two rooms which appeal to me in any way are the tenth one and the last one. The rest look like marshmallow vomited on them. Stereotypical and kinda disgusting.
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.
It’s rare for interior designers to act as their own clients, but that’s how Karen Howes decided to tackle the refurbishment of a run-down basement flat of a purpose-built 1901 London block. She briefed the team at Taylor Howes Designs, leaving the property as a building site while she went on a three-week trip to China and returned to find it finished. In the spare bedroom, she opted for a ‘Kazak’ roman blind by Tissus d’Hélène the blues of which tie into the bedroom’s artwork and contrasts with the orange desk chair, colours which run throughout the home.
The bedroom of decorator Emma Burns of Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler is quintessentially English in both its gentle antique style and its ‘make do and mend’ execution. ‘The bedhead is covered in an ancient patchwork made from my mother’s old dresses. I originally used it as a tablecloth,’ she says. ‘For me the bedroom is as important as the sitting room; it is a place of refuge that I use for resting and reading. I like to fill it with books, pictures and armchairs. I’ve kept a feeling of softness by using a very subtle stippling effect on the walls, and some translucent blinds from Chelsea Textiles under the curtains, which allow a diffuse light into the room. My linen is from Volga Linen.’
This bedroom is full of texture, with an exposed brick wall setting off the earthy palette. One of a pair of lights by Swedish designer Poul Henningsen hangs over the bed in this spare room, which is also lit by a skylight. The bedspread is by Brigitte Singh, based on a Mughal design, and the cushions are made from an antique Japanese obi sash.
The space might be compact but as a snug sleeping spot it has everything it needs and is given real style with some design-led textiles and accessories. To create the same effect as the walls, try horizontally panelled wall cladding.
