Brighten up a neutral children’s room with splashes of colour. Chunky pink letters are mounted on the wall and delicate butterflies hang from the ceiling, giving the scheme an extra girly touch. Keep clutter to a minimum with a storage unit in playful colours.
Formed by turning four adjoining flats into a single living space, this north London conversion is filled with its owners’ impressive collection of art. A restrained, modern interior has been created by Tom Bartlett from Waldo works. The light is ‘Heracleum’ by Moooi. Tom suggested wallpapering a screen to stand behind the bed, rather than the wall, to add visual interest.
In the modern scheme of designer Sarah Chambers’ Victorian house she has used colour to add richness, and mirrored surfaces to add light. The curved headboard is covered in printed velvet by Créations Métaphores and edged with antiqued-brass studs.
Stylist Alexander Breeze’s bedroom is painting in a very matt yet rich grey-green: ‘Olive’ by Farrow & Ball. He bought an inexpensive bed and painted it himself. The striking plywood headboard was designed by Breeze and made with the help of bespoke laser cutting service Cut Laser Cut.
i agree with lily and not any with lizzy cuz if your room is small than make it so that things can fit in your room but most importantly make it so its your style and that you will injoy going in your room every day. plus if you hated your room the way you desinged you would have to spend more cash witch you would not want. i mean these are really good desings that is on the website, and people will love these desings too but others wont but for me i LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE these desings. dont give up cuz of people who dont like these ideas, keep doing what you love cuz people like me love your ideas and other people do to and it would break there heart to know that you quit!!!!:) welp hope to see more of your designs! later! <3 While it's wonderful to go buck wild with the decoration of a child's room, sometimes a subtle approach, like that taken in this charming nursery by Emma Burns of Colefax & Fowler, can save time and money - especially if the baby is likely to graduate to a bigger room later on. We don't need to tell you how quickly your children grow up, so thinking ahead with a room scheme will avoid continuous decorating overhauls. A simple scheme with easily removable touches, like this fantastic race track wallsticker mean the bedroom can easily grow with your child. On paper, this room shouldn’t be lovely at all – tiny, with barely any room for even a bed, and crammed with bright colours and clashing patterns. But in reality, this space, which I shot for my book Home for Now, is actually one of my favourite bedrooms I’ve ever worked in. This gorgeous sea green hue breathes life into this bijou space, whilst ingenious storage ideas, such as using a wall-mounted telephone table instead of a bedside unit, and hanging storage pockets on the wall, make best use of the available space. It proves that if you have courage in your design convictions, you can make anything work, whatever the challenge. Image credit The owners of this Somerset country house had not anticipated taking on such a large project, but their careful renovation enhanced by modern decorative touches has resulted in a smart and comfortable forever home. This white attic bedroom has a sunny feel thanks to a bright yellow patterned throw and matching cushions. A storage chest with a cute duck design sits at the foot of the bed - perfect for adding character to a bedroom or for a kid's room. Sometimes all it takes is a few key accessories to give your bedroom a style overhaul: a striking chandelier, a feature mirror and, our personal favourite, a neon sign above the bed - the contemporary style of which contrasts beautifully with the more traditional touches.

This kid's bedroom has floral wallpaper, a pastel palette and a simple white bed frame, allowing mixed patterns to work well together. The grey and cream rug is 'Cora' from The Rug Company. The scheme is elegant yet far from dull. Open-plan living is made cosy with warm touches to this mews house in London owned by designer Caroline Riddell. Upstairs in Caroline's daughter's bedroom, 'Vertical Stripe' wallpaper from Timorous Beasties lines the walls, adding to the fun blue-and-white scheme. A blue velvet headboard, along with various textiles, creates a cosy feel in this small space. Even if your bedroom is small, it’s still possible to create an interesting space. This is why I love this image, as the headboard on the bed is unique and fun, and creates a real focal point. It’s a DIY project that simply needs some panels of wood and a jigsaw to cut the shape. I love how they’ve added washi tape and some images to it – meaning you can add personality, and can easily change these as the mood takes you. They’ve tied the look together subtly with the neon pink touches, but keeping the rest of the colour palette simple. Image credit There's no denying that it's the wallpaper that makes this room. The pretty, ditzy print used to paper the whole room is combined with classic white furniture and a pale cream carpet to ensure the overall scheme is not too busy. Hannah Cecil Gurney's west London flat is a feast of luxurious colour, texture and pattern - little surprise given that her father founded the handmade wallpaper company de Gournay. In the main bedroom hand-painted silk cushions and a Burmese lamp pick up on the green in the 'Badminton' wallpaper from de Gournay, which 'provides a cocoon of birds and butterflies that makes [Hannah] so happy'. The paper has been antiqued in order to give a tarnsihed effect. Well, my sister and I have been sharing bedrooms at two different homes for almost eleven years now, and my mom and stepdad are getting ready to build onto our house, which will give me my own room, of course my sister will bw gwtting a room with a door, a small closet, and one window, while I will be left with our ‘master bedroom’ so I’ll have the bathroom, a wlk in closet, and a two windows, i really want a new, cool design with pretty colors, i’de prefer no pink and purple, and a queen sized bed, though these are all wonderful ideas, my friends don’t have rooms this big, and my ceilings arent that high…do you have any ideas that might fit my room?? A hanging statement light, like a chandelier, can really pull together a bedroom and give the eye a focal point. The crystal accents in this chandelier add an interesting element of light and texture when contrasted with the wood flooring and bed frame. Scandinavian style isn't just whites and woods - quirky prints and playful colour are Nordic hallmarks. (Have you seen Marimekko?). Our top tip? Keep clutter to a minimum and stick to clashing prints in similar colours. Scandi-licious. This sweet, galleried play area designed by Trine Miller, has the dual function of creating an adventurous play space, while also keeping toys contained and out of view. 'The idea was that the gallery was very much their private space,' says Trine, 'rather like a tree house.' Beneath, a small bathroom has been installed. A feature bed in a purple velvet, bone-inlay furniture, an eclectic mix of textiles and an all-important insouciantly hung sheer voile make up this bohemian scheme that has us dreaming of exotic, balmy summer nights. Designer William Yeoward's takeover of our June style pages, to celebrate the anniversary of his company, yielded a timeless scheme that celebrated his work past and present. In a room painted Farrow & Ball's 'Card Room Green', an Eighteenth century screen from Hollyhock works in a similar manner to a mural. The bespoke tented cupboard was created by Clock House Furniture from William Yeoward at Guild fabric. The chest of drawers and the bed are also of William's design, with bedding from The Linen Works. I love the soft, muted palette of this master retreat. Cool greys and ivory are well-suited for the bedroom – a space that should feel calm and restful. The mix of textural fabrics and nubby wool rug create a warm, layered space that still feels contemporary and tailored. Image credit Okay, these bedrooms are nice and all but who really has rooms with a balcony and a full glass window wall and a giant skylight in their room? Not the average family. So maybe you should make more pratical ideas. You would have been of more help to the other people who also commented agreeing with me. And anyways most of these ideas were no where near anything that i’d think would be a teenage girl’s room. Most of them look like like lifeless hospital rooms. Just saying. The design of this boys' room was dictated by the original chimneypiece in their Brussels home. The leather headboards are designed by their father Jorge, who runs design company Casamidy with his wife Anne-Marie Midy. This gorgeous girl’s room has hand painted, full room wall mural with wooden floors. The atmosphere in this room is enough to give wings to the imagination to your little fairy. I won’t be surprised to find her in the land of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, fast asleep in the garden, waiting for her prince. The traditional bed and the furniture enhance the mystic feel of the atmosphere. Kids' rooms are meant to be fun, so don't be afraid to use materials like paper, cardboard (and even a disco ball!) to lend a cheeful, party mood. A sturdy bunk bed anchors the room to still keep the look luxe. [redirect url='http://www.girlsbedroom.org/bump' sec='7']
