Emily has been writing about interiors for over four years. She loves finding the story behind a brand and discovering how a design is made. A travel enthusiast, she also has a weakness for luxury home fragrance and cosy knits.
The artist owners of this London house called on interior designer Beata Heuman to create a family home full of fun, distinctive design. A highly original space, unapologetically theatrical and oozing energy. ‘The owners are both artists. They have quite wild tastes and they love strong colours,’ says Beata. The main bedroom has a bespoke sofa upholstered in Beata’s signature marbleised fabric and lion claw feet. Other notable features include a pair of breglass dance-hall mirrors from French Loft and the ceiling painted in ‘Lulworth Blue’ by Farrow & Ball. ‘I have this thing about painting ceilings blue. It seems over the top, but it adds a feeling of height and once it is in, you don’t really think about it’.
The owners of this west London house employed a skilled team to restore its original features, and create a home with a feeling of permanence after a lifetime of moving. The house is a tall, mid-nineteenth-century white stucco building that they wanted to work well for twenty-first-century family life. ‘We were determined to avoid beige banker chic,’ the owner explains. The daughter’s diminutive bedroom is hung with Cole & Son’s ‘Hummingbirds’ wallpaper.
Monochrome is the among the most confident of interior styles. Inspired by the elegance of 1960s black-and-white fashion photography, it’s a style that’s endured. Here, a colourless room uses a hint of grey and asymmetry to its advantage.

This bedroom is striking to me. It surprises you…such a delicate balance of masculine and feminine. You can’t help but to appreciate the subtle design elements reflected within the context of this modern Asian-inspired scale and colour scheme ~ the mysteriousness of the asymmetrical bookcase, the delicateness in how the objects are placed, and the luxurious feel the dark-on-light furniture gives. I get a sense of warmth but refreshed at the same time. Finally, the artwork chosen seals the sentiment of this overall design composition. Simply put, I love it. Image credit
a ladder and slide in the room that goes up into a little step up, play room. This is a bedroom or playroom for little kids if you take the pink away it could be for boys and girls room. This is some brilliant designing! Love it perfect for a little girl
Vintage vanity is on the list for Squiggles’ room. I like the color of this one: Fresh coat of paint on vanity and recovering with a fun Amy Butler coral/orange print. Love keeping the furniture that I grew up with and giving it new life for Ava’s room.
This bedroom resides in a period home with high ceilings, classically inspired mouldings and beautiful parquet flooring. As if that isn’t enough, it’s filled with a mixture of mid-century furniture and lighting, breathtaking art and a sophisticated and restrained colour palette. For me it is the embodiment of ‘timelessness’. It will look as good in ten or twenty years time, just as it wouldn’t have looked out of place thirty years ago. It’s also impossible to tell if the owner is male of female. Another sign of simple good taste. And yet, it’s no museum piece, and has all the attributes of a comfortable and restorative bedroom. The pillows are plump and smooth. There’s an extra wool blanket to ward off winter chills. There’s a warm rug for bare feet, and the reading lights are positioned just where they are most effective. There’s even candles handy for when the mood dictates. If I was to add anything, it might be a padded headboard, but then the artwork wouldn’t be centre stage. That’s another word for this room. Considered. Image credit
The owner of this family home in Chelsea has a collection of Fifties, Norwegian abstract-expressionist art; instead of basing his scheme the colours in the paintings, designer Stephen Eicker cleverly mirrored the rich shades with layers of vibrant fabrics and thickly applied paints instead. The vibrant fabric used as wallcovering in the spare room is by Claremont.
This child’s room showcases youthful sophistication for growing girls. Offset from the bedroom, the lavender playroom provides plenty of space for playing games and entertaining friends. The lime linen settee is the perfect place to read a book while enjoying the sweeping outdoor views. By creating a clear separation between the bedroom and playroom, both rooms have a clear and defined purpose. Design by Jennifer Duneier
Remember that storage doesn’t necessarily have to be in the bedroom. If you have a corridor near the room consider utilising that as a place to put wardrobes, as designer Philippa Thorpe has in this Chelsea house.
This room, done in daring strokes of aqua and pink, is proof that two colors can pack a punch. Looking to create your own dramatic look? Use large blocks of your chosen colors (such as on the wall and bedspread), limit patterns, and add in doses of white for a crisp finish.
Like many a family home, there are conflicting tastes present in the home of Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada, furniture designers and owners of Casamidy. For starters, the two prefer different materials – Anne-Marie likes metal, while Jorge loves leather – but the two have created a home with a uniformity of spirit while still reflecting their personal tastes. In the master bedroom, the hand forged iron ‘Diego bed’ by Anne-Marie takes centre-stage.
This is a house to fall in love with, located in a Cotswold village so unfeasibly pretty you want to bottle it to savour. In the bedroom you can almost do just that – it opens to the garden. The owners decorated it themselves but Nina Campbell is an old friend and ‘still have many things she found’. Here, they matched the bedcover from The White Company to the beams, given a greyish, limed-effect finish to retain a sense of airiness.
For a scheme in House & Garden’s August 2017 issue, Acting Decoration Editor Ruth Sleightholme worked with wicker designs and French textiles in a bedroom with distressed paintwork and tiled floors in Atelier Vime’s eighteenth-century hôtel particulier, Hotel Drujon.

A good mattress is even more important than the bed it sits on. Take time to choose the right one for you, trying it out in-store if possible, and lying on it in various different positions. Whether you go for an innerspring mattress, memory foam mattress, or anything in between, it pays to invest in a well-made model. A top quality mattress should keep its shape for at least eight years. Check out our guide to the best mattresses.
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.
Proof that you can make the functional beautiful is this mosquito-net-draped bed at the Segera eco retreat in Kenya, started by businessman and entrepreneur Jochen Zeitz, a passionate advocate of conservation and sustainable tourism.
I actuallly really like these rooms, there really neat. But in case you havn’t noticed alot of teen girls(or at least the ones i know), aren’t exactly up there on the money scale. i mean there not broke, but they cant go buy stuff like this for an affordable price. And usually the ones who can, well they dont use the internet for there bedroom ideas. They probably use the months top teen room magazine or somthing like that.lol I’m just saying, the girls that actually use this site for ideas probably wouldnt be able to use this stuff. Maybey a more realistic list of teen room would be better for our use. Besides real talent is making your room look amazing with a small bugdet. Being creative!
