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.
Your daughter’s nightly homework assignments will grow right along with her. Every school-age child needs a desk for study time. The simple desk fronted by a large bulletin board shown here is the perfect spot to study. But what really makes this room special is the adorable wall décor – and it’s a snap to duplicate. Just fill in the space over the headboard with a colorful and wonderfully patterned wallpaper. It’s an easy DIY, and you’ll probably only need one roll of paper.
I’m a huge fan of simple and functional Scandinavian style with a monochrome and neutral colour palette. This bedroom is quite minimalist, but at the same time has everything you need to relax. I prefer all white bedding (linen bedding is my favourite!) which is in this bedroom combined with some black pillowcases to add contrast against the white wall. I love to bring some warmth into the monochrome interior by adding natural materials (like wood) and also green plants – both of which have been used in this bedroom. Image credit
Designate areas in a bedroom for specific purposes. A cozy bench by the window is a sunny spot for reading. Big baskets on a shelving unit house toys and books in a central location. A small table in the center of the room can be set for tea with friends or can be used as a work area for art projects or studying.
The elementary-school years… they’re a delight. No longer an infant or toddler requiring middle-of-the-night care, but not yet a teen with a corresponding attitude, the elementary-age child, for the most part, is full of fun, love and whimsy. If you have a daughter in this age category, it’s time for her to have a bedroom that reflects her status as “not a baby anymore,” yet still retains the innocence of childhood. Here are twelve ideas for decorating a bedroom that will thrill any little girl,…MORE starting with this adorable space from Chango & Co.

David and Lizzie Currie discovered Lucy Ford, a decorator after their own hearts, who transformed their bland west London house into a stylish home to suit their family lifestyle. The cool kids’ bedroom features bespoke children’s beds and storage units by Alistair Robinson of FT2 Design, brought from the Currie’s previous minimalist and architect-designed house.
When designer Douglas Mackie and his partner Julian Jackson bought this house in the Languedoc region of the South of France, it was a chance for Douglas – a knowledgeable collector of textiles – to show off his stock of older, ethnic pieces. ‘I have always been an avid collector of pieces from North Africa and Asia, and now their rich saturated colours sit wonderfully well in the shafts of sunlight of a southern home.’ In the spare bedroom a Persian jajim hangs against the brush-plastered wall in place of a headboard. On the floor is a vintage Moroccan rug, while the bed linen is from Conran.
The spare bedroom of interior designer Diana Sieff’s home (a converted chapel in Oxfordshire) has a vintage chic look, with a trio Lebanese plates hanging on the wall. ‘Isfahan’ porcelain plates by OKA, £179 for a set of four, would create a similar look.
Breaking away from traditional girl colors, this room has a modern vibe with its shades of orange — ranging from sherbet to pumpkin — and shocks of electric blue. Girl appeal is added with floral prints, which are graphic rather than flowery, keeping with the modern design.
If you’re a ‘less is more’ person then this is the bedroom scheme for you. The key is in keeping colours muted but the furniture interesting – the four-poster bed has presence and works well with the high ceilings in this room; anything less and the room may feel bare.

Bold window panels boast a flower pattern that includes lots of bright pink in this girl’s room idea. The custom coverlet’s red embroidery has a refined look that can stay with the room’s pre-kindergarten resident until she reaches college age. A queen-size bed with a custom-designed headboard fills the large area between a closet and dresser on one wall and built-in bookcases and window seats across the room.
Take a leaf out of the Vidago Palace Hotel in Portugal’s book by mixing masculine (sleek, heavy furniture and dark colours) and feminine design elements (pastels, fresh flowers) for a beautifully balanced room that’s strong, yet oh-so chic.

Designer Kit Kemp is the queen of combining bold colour and pattern with a finesse that never looks overdone. In this room in the Ham Yard hotel deep blue walls are lifted by an upholstered gabled headboard and matching curtains. The polka dot print on the cushions is echoed in the chair, while the striped ottoman at the foot of the bed pulls in the white of the bedspread and balances the scheme.

An upholstered screen is a useful device when working with pattern as it can be moved to fill empty spaces (or hide areas such as a desk in a multi-purpose bedroom) and is relatively simple to recover when you tire of the design.
Wallpaper tends to get a bad rap for making rooms look small and cluttered, but using the right style and technique does just the opposite. Add a bold wallpaper pattern to a focal wall, like your headboard wall.
Hitting the books might be a chore, but in a room as fun as this, homework time just might get a little easier. A large desk and office chair, with storage bins beneath, create a work But when it’s time for fun, ample seating, a fun color scheme, and whimsical touches turn this room into a space for giggling with friends.
Gabby Deeming has created the atmosphere of a New England-style holiday home with painted wood and faded stripes. 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.
‘The approach we took to the furniture was rather like our approach to the house as a whole,’ says Jonathan Tuckey, who imaginatively modernised this seventeenth-century chalet in the Swiss Alps. ‘We really liked a lot of the things that were in the house already and decided to hang on to them. But then there were other elements that we designed specially, such as the beds which are now really close to the ground and more informal.’

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.
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.
wow, thanks for this post. I like the one with the stairs. It’s almost the same picture I have in mind years ago but never given a chance to have it in real picture. Anyway, happy to drop by and see your posts.
In the bedrooms of Monteverdi’s Villa Muri Antichi, the hotel’s designer, Ilaria Miani has coupled wooden beams and marble floors sourced in Italy, with beds built by craftsmen in Sarteano at the foot of the hill. The C&C Milano bedlinen – dyed in shades of rose, eggshell blue and oatmeal – is handmade in Milan. The walls are finished in what is normally an outdoor render, but the effect is smooth and cool to the touch.
The furniture was found at Swoon Editions, including the low, mid-century modern rosewood media unit and bedside table. The bedding was bought from Anthropologie and the lighting from Urban Cottage Industries.

Just because your space is small does not mean your pieces can’t be large. Use a monochromatic color scheme because it creates an illusion for the eyes. Choose one color family and select variations of it for the largest parts of your rooms. Natural light will also be your friend. Use sheer window treatments or leave them off entirely. Consider furnishings that have multiple purposes. And always, create a space you love!
