The walls are in ‘Faded Damask’ by Mulberry Home, while the bespoke wooden headboard can be made to order by Fafio, and is painted (along with all the rest of the wood work) in ‘Sea Cliff’ eggshell from Sanderson. The bedding is from Romo, and the driftwood side table is Oka.

It is always recommended to select simple and elegant teen bedroom furniture instead of spending lots of money on them. Select a simple bed (or bunk bed) and club it with a functional desk, wardrobe, and drawer. If there is ample of free space in the room, you may consider creating a casual seating space. Low lying chairs or sofa featuring colorful cushions with a small coffee table would do the needful.

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.
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.
A fresh color palette of blue-green, orange, and purple looks sunny in this shared girls’ bedroom. Turquoise walls complement soft peach curtains and table lamps. A modern take on a traditional floral pattern covers the beds and ties in the wall and curtain colors, and adds in a splash of soft lavender. These sisters traded traditional girl’s bedroom wall art for a corkboard outfitted in floral fabric. Here, they can pin up their latest masterpieces or show off their latest homework assignments.

Colour blocking isn’t just a fashion trend. Start with one colour on the wall, then build your accent colours around it. Don’t forget to include neutral accents – white, black, grey and wood will help draw the eye to your carefully-chosen colour scheme.
@Fay, that is your opinion, of course. I, however, was admiring the variety in the designs, happy that they weren’t all excessively girly, because, of course, that WOULD be stereotypical. There are girls that do like that kind of thing, however, and I thought this list was very good in portraying different styles for different people. You did find TWO that you liked, didn’t Each and every one wasn’t meant to suit each and every girl.
A gothic grey palette is perfect for displaying quirky personal mementos and interesting artwork. For a look that’s dramatic instead of drab, include a variety of textures and interesting details. The bronze fixtures on the black iron bed are a perfect example.
Sharing a room as a teenager can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be ugly! In this pretty space, designer Kristina Crestin dressed two full-sized beds in matching white ruffled bedding and plush fur throws, hanging each girl’s monogram above her bed for personalization. A shared midcentury modern dresser doubles as a nightstand and is a cool contrast to feminine pink ruffled curtains.
This Parisian loft features ‘Floating Armchair’ by David Hodkinson for Red Edition in the centre of the playroom. The design makes good use of the small space with playful hanging components on the wall, a blackboard that is both useful and decorative and a snug day bed tucked under the eaves. White walls welcome natural light into the small bedroom, which is important in a loft conversion. The clean, white wooden floors give the room a more spacious feel, in keeping with the clean lines of the Scandinavian-style armchair.
Creating a coastal bedroom design is simple, too. Sailing away to dreamland awaits you when you make your bed with a soft blue nautical striped comforter or scalloped navy duvet cover that brings about visions of the gentle ocean waves. Decorating the floor with the luxury shag rugs we offer in neutral hues accentuates the softness of your dorm room’s design. Placing storage racks, closet organizers and canvas storage bins around your dorm room creates plenty of organization and storage options to help you keep everything where it needs to go.
Looking for a sophisticated palette that manages to be both masculine and glamorous at the same time? Then consider the combination of chocolate brown and white. Amp it up further with a small chandelier, a patterned rug and white bedding, and the result is pure splendor.

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 is a photo of my 8 year old son’s room, styled and photographed by myself. It’s a modern Breton themed bedroom. I styled this bedroom in the autumn to bring a fresh, bright and happy feel to the room. I made sure that a cosy feel is maintained, with the soft throw on the bed for bedtime tucking in and the cushion for casual lounging. Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends. Image courtesy of Gerladine Tan.
Avast, ye landlubbers! (We love any excuse for pirate speak.) What kid wouldn’t love this pirate-inspired room, with its storytelling wall sticker and stars-and-stripes theme? However, when the pirate phase wanes, all these accessories can be removed to leave a smart navy bunk bed and wardrobe within a neutral scheme.
An entire room filled with bright color is too much intensity for a tiny space, but when you use a few hot shots of eye-catching color to heat up neutrals or classic black-and-white, the temperature is just right.
