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.
Who wouldn’t wake up full of the joys of spring in this light filled, summery bedroom? If you can’t afford to fill your room with garden flowers don’t worry, the fresh floral textiles and painted white gloss floor (which reflects the natural light) will do the trick alone.

The main bedroom of this old fashioned Hampshire house has large sash windows that allow views out across the garden and parkland; the wallpaper is George Spencer’s Palm Stripe’ design, while the bed curtain is in ‘Bergama’ linen by Robert Kime.
Kelly Hoppen’s London house shows off her trademark slick, neutral style. The main bedroom, which has an internal window looking down onto the open-plan ground floor, features a neutral colour scheme of white and taupe. ‘You probably haven’t even noticed the other major thing I’ve done here,’ says Kelly. And it’s at this point that I come to appreciate not only Kelly’s dedication to detail, but also her refusal to take herself too seriously. ‘I’ve mixed sand with taupe,’ she says with mock triumph.
Grey walls contrast elegantly with a wooden four-poster bed hung with a cream linen in this scheme, where simplicity and luxury are the name of the game. A Colefax & Fowler table lamp complements the soft grey wall paint, while the bed’s cream linen is echoed by the curtains. A sofa at the foot of the bed emphasises comfort.
Hi Courtney! Wow, what a great site you have here! So many awesome ideas in one place. My daughter started college this year, and when she gets a chance to come home we are going to the tie-dyed pillows for her dorm room. Thanks so much for the great ideas and keep up the good work! 🙂
Keep yourself on track each day with a cool alarm or wall clock in your room. Match the colors of your clock to the colors in your bedding to instantly tie the entire room together. Or, pick a silver, white, black or gold clock to give your room a jeweled appearance. Set out a mini-fridge near your study zone, and you’ve instantly created a cozy learning corner that will encourage you to keep studying.
House & Garden picture editor Owen Gale transformed his loft, turning the space into a bedroom, bathroom and music studio. Here is the bedroom, which has a ceiling height of just two metres. Farrow & Ball’s ‘All White’ was used to make the room feel light and spacious, while vertical tongue-and-groove panelling also worked to the same effect.
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.
Don’t be afraid of the dark! Dark colours have become really cool in interiors and bedrooms are amazing spaces to use them. This dark blue creates a really dramatic space and draws your eye to the crisp white linen and the light of the window. Image credit
The rich, witty and wonderfully eclectic interiors of designer Nicky Haslam’s sixteenth-century, gothic-revival hunting lodge have long been coveted by all of us here at House & Garden. So when we heard was producing a furniture range for Oka, based on pieces from his own home, we were extremely excited. Following his motto ‘use something red and gothic in each room and you’re all right,’ the collection has ogees, points, tracery and quatrefoils a-plenty, offering the chance to recreate at least a part of his look. House & Garden shot the collection in situ at the house. Here in the bedroom ‘The Original Orangery Stepped’ bedside table, works beautifully with the vertical floral border on the wall (a lovely decorative idea for older houses) and antique chintz bed canopy.
A foundation of sleek white offers a modern look for this girl’s room, while vivid sherbet green and lipstick pink add youthful personality. While a two-color scheme is simple, sometimes adding a third color can make a kid’s room sing. This also lets you incorporate a favorite, of-the-moment color. In this girl’s bedroom idea, bedding with the room’s pink and green scheme features a bit of blue, which also makes a splash on the storage boxes atop the dresser.
The bedroom in this hotel designer’s west London home features a portrait of the owner, aged 13 by the artist Primo Potenza, which hangs above a mahogany table. Beside it stands a 1930s découpage screen by the surrealist painter and theatrical designer Leonor Fini.
Don’t be fearful of brights in the bedroom, they can look fantastic, but we suggest keeping strong hues to a feature wall behind the bed and choosing a softer, more calming colour for the rest of the room.
This light and airy bedroom looks like a wonderful getaway. The symmetry of the space and decor makes for a pleasing view and you can just imagine yourself watching the clouds go by through those sky lights! I love how the dark green tone and botanical cushion prints bring a little of the outside in. In my opinion, adding a feline friend will always make your space seem welcoming! 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.

If there’s one thing that makes a bedroom, it’s soft bedding you can see yourself burrowing into. Get that right, then add a striking pendant light and statement nightstand for a look that’s the epitome of effortless style.
The washi tape is back. Not sure you should decorate your entire room with washi tape, but the door and light switch ideas sure are cool. Match them up with complimentary patterns and tapes and you are good to go with unique room decor that you can change when you no longer want it or find it to be quite as awesome as when you put it up.
