Hi! I’m only 11, but we are moving in like two weeks, and I really want to know what to put in my room. This has been a great inspiration for me, and I really like this site!! Could you post something that I could do with just really easy to get stuff that is probably lying around my house right now? I need to know what to pack!! I love DIYing, and keep up the awesome ideas!!
For House & Garden’s Carole Annett, a passing request for decorating advice from her friend, the interior designer Emma Sims Hilditch, turned into the top-to-bottom redecoration of her Surrey house in time for Christmas.
I love the cool, calm feeling of interior stylist Pella Hedeby’s bedroom, with its abundance of natural light, crisp white linens and beautiful monochrome accents. The cladding on the wall behind the end offers the perfect framed display units for artwork and scented candles, and I always love a low console table at the foot of the bed for displaying coffee table books and keeping rows of footwear organised.

Tweens are notorious for being a fan of one thing one week to totally flipping and loving something else the next. Shelving and under-bed storage leave room for them to store things until they’re cool again.
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.
‘We loved the cool, pared-down style of a house belonging to a Swedish art collector, which we had seen in a magazine,’ says the owners of this west-London terrace home. Enter designer Hugh Leslie. The top floor of this west-London is devoted to the children, with the son’s room in off-white and the daughter’s in soft green, plus a bathroom on the half-landing. Hugh’s talent for joinery is evident here as well: tongue-and-groove recesses frame the children’s beds, with capacious cupboard space on either side.
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.

Does your daughter have princess tastes, but your budget is a little less kingly? No worries, you can easily add pretty touches without spending a fortune. Take a tip from this room found on C Magazine, and adorn a simple bunk bed with lots of colorful tassels. Next, add a collection of fun and colorful throw pillows, and then hang a feather boa on the wall. Voila, the bedroom is ready for your little princess and your bank account is still intact.
Measuring just 90 square metres, this home to a family of five in Chelsea, London, makes use of every inch of space. Designed by Eve Mercier, the small kids’ bedroom features two broad, wall-mounted benches (underneath the loft bed) that are easily transformed into beds (bedlinen is concealed below), while a third, drawer bed slides out when needed. ‘We wanted a versatile space that could easily be converted into a study if necessary,’ explains Eve. A circular, frosted window overlooks the bathroom.

Pale pink chiffon curtains and Bambi print bedding and accessories will appeal to the girliest of little girls, but combining these with granite grey panelled walls ensures the scheme is not too sacharine for adult aesthetic sensibilities.
The bedroom is usually quite a simple room. The design and layout is far less complicated than a kitchen or bathroom, so you can put a lot of focus on the decoration, style and colours you’re using. Start by thinking about who will be using the bedroom. Is it you alone? With your partner? Your teenage children? That’ll set the tone for your style.
I love a crisp, clean, modern bedroom like this one from NylonPinksy. I love to switch up an ‘expected’ design of a space, with something unexpected like using two different lamps on the nightstands (as in this photo).
‘To make this room feel more relaxed, we decided to take the symmetry out of the space,’ says Tom Bartlett of Waldo Works, of his designs for London’s new Laslett Hotel. ‘It can be nice to break the rules. Things don’t always have to match: the lamp by Davide Groppi at TwentyTwentyone on the left above the fitted cabinet is different to the ‘Otis’ lamp Nocturne Workshop on the table by Pinch, but they are in the same materials and colours, so they work together. The same approach was used to hang the art, which I always try out first on the floor in front of the wall. One piece was hung and the rest were allowed to extend from it in different shapes up and across the wall. To do this well, you need a variety of frames and a good breadth of types of artwork,’ he says. Other items in the room include grey and blue patterned cushions by Eleanor Pritchard, an orange cushion by Urbanara and a blanket by Tweedmill.
Ok, so…I have a small room. How many teenagers do YOU know that has these gigantic elegant hardcore expensive rooms??!! I know NO ONE who has a giant room. My living room is like the size of some of these rooms. Be REALISTIC.
Everything is so cute , simple and bright. I want to ask if kids blinds is still popular? My little girl want princess castle printed blinds like this https://www.amara.com/luxpad/childrens-bedroom-ideas/ . If it’s nice or better I should buy a normal one color blinds? Also I want to ask from where you bought that bed with curtains? It looks very cozy
In the daughter’s bedroom of a west London house, the ceiling has been painted to look like a circus tent, using Farrow & Ball’s ‘Rectory Red’ and Paint and Paper Library’s ‘Slate I’. The addition of a large basement extension to the house has freed up space on the upper floors for bright and capacious rooms, and a more fluid layout, ideal for family living.
Will Fisher and his wife Charlotte of Jamb have completely refashioned their eighteenth-century house in south east London, relaying the wooden antique floors, reproducing the cornicing and installing period chimneypieces and stonework. The couple have done a great deal to bring that much sought-after – but rarely achieved – country-house look to the mainstream aesthetic.
Bring a redundant fireplace up to scratch for the party season by lining it with wallpaper. Simply take the dimensions of the inside of your fireplace, cut out the wallpaper to fit and Blu-Tac it into place. A few ornamental logs, tea lights or strategically placed baubles also help achieve this look.

There are so many things about this room that we love: the matte grey painted floorboards, the assortment of rugs, the pretty bed canopy and sweet wall stickers and the soft but warm colour scheme. Whether you copy the whole scheme or just take one element, you’ve got guaranteed style.
Spark your child’s imagination as they rest their weary heads with a fun ceiling hanging. Why not even create it yourselves? Simply invest in some colourful material, heavy thread and fabric paint and let your creativity run riot.
Give a country cottage bedroom a wash of white paint and their odd angles characterful corners come in to their own. A Jacob’s ladder accentuates the double-height proportions of a spare room at Slackwood Farm in Lancashire.
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.
Think outside the box (or four walls) when it comes to paint colours for your bedroom. A rich forest green would normally be seen in a living room or dining room, but it adds a grown-up glamour to a bedroom.
In the main bedroom in Hannah Cecil Gurney’s London flat has hand-painted silk cushions and a Burmese lamp pick up on the green in the ‘Badminton’ wallpaper by de Gournay, the wallpaper company her father founded in 1986.
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
Designer Robin Callan created a chic, Paris-style bedroom by creating pint-sized elegance among a playful pink and green color palette. Coordinate fabrics of various textures and patterns to create a look that is both visually appealing and eye-catching. Robin collected fabrics that integrate the same pink and green hues to keep the room from appearing overwhelming or busy.
