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.
The design of this room is in keeping with the rest of the house, in which all rooms are furnished with Scandinavian and mid-century pieces. Heidi and Steve were collecting these before they met. Pieces sourced from dealers and furniture fairs – and even found in skips – include classic Knoll, Eames, Ercol and Hans Wegner furniture with some contemporary pieces by Hay and Donna Wilson thrown in for good measure. Artwork, including vintage Carry On posters, a Lucienne Day silk mosaic and work by Pink Floyd designer Storm Thorgerson, hangs on the walls.
This bedroom by Samantha Pynn is my dream bedroom! The soft colour palette with the simple design gives this room such a relaxing feel, while the blue floral ceramic stool and pillows add another dimension to the room, and keep it from feeling too soft. The sheer curtains let in lots of light, keeping the room lovely and bright.
Hi Courtney! My name is Lily and I’m 14 years old. I have a pretty cluttered bedroom and I wanted to re-decorate it with low-cost ideas. If you have anything that could help me or any tips, please tell me.
Architect Francesca Oggioni had to set aside her rationalist principles when she was planning a new layout for her listed house in west London, so it would work as a family home, workspace and backdrop for an extensive art collection. This spare bedroom on the top floor has neutral decoration allows the artwork to be the focus of the room.
These are some some incredibly creative ideas! I love how these designs make the most of small spaces. Another option is to purchase furniture with multiple purposes. A great choice is a Zoom-Room or Zoom-Desk. Zoom-Room is a 21st century version of the Murphy Bed. It’s a remote controlled retractable Wall Bed that snakes up behind the cabinet instead of folding down, so you can put your flat screen TV or bookshelves in front. The Zoom-Room is customizeable with custom cabinets, home office accessories, finishes, and materials. It combines both function and great design.
The rustic trend – bare brick walls, exposed lightbulbs and distressed finishes – started in restaurants. Want to get the look at home? Use a variety of textures along with a vibrant accent colour such as red or turquoise.
This is a gorgeous example of a modern bohemian bedroom, achieving a relaxed and simple yet cosy atmosphere. I love how the dark navy walls finish just shy of the ceiling, adding the sense of height and drama with the fabulous pendant over the bed. A hanging rattan chair with sheepskin looks like a perfect place to swing on whilst reading your papers in the morning with a coffee, and THAT giant fig leaf tree adds a powerful punch of green, and the all important link to credit
A black and white colour scheme isn’t usually associated with kids’ rooms but, if your daughter’s not a girly-girl, a monochrome palette, accessorised with bright hues in green or red, is a great alternative to pinks.
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.
Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory, Coco Chanel famously advised. The same technique can be used for your home. The removal of a bedside table – leaving the flowers and books on the floor – add an inspired touch to this room.

A dash of vintage, a sprinkle of whimsy and a drop of contemporary all seamlessly intertwined into this gorgeous kid’s room styled by Petite Vintage. The easy to reach storage space makes it easy to tidy up and keep things in their place. Plenty of floor space allows for freedom to move, play and imagine, and the bed frame creates a creative space within a space where dreams are made. The colours used are striking and pleasant and the warmth of the light enhance the colours and soften the geometric lines of the bed frame and the carpet. My tips for decorating a children’s bedroom would be to remember that fairy lights are not just for Christmas – use them in a child’s room to create a dreamy atmosphere and to not be afraid to mix vintage and contemporary styles.

The spare room in this Georgian town house in Ludlow designed by Caroline Harrowby is papered in ‘Alderney’ from Colefax and Fowler. This adds interest to the space, which is light and airy – a fitting style for a small bedroom.
In a bedroom at Cadland House in Hampshire, twin beds have block-printed quilts from India with deep yellows and blues pairing for a tasteful pop of colour. Yellow stripes are the backdrop to a gallery wall of artwork which also adds colour to the brown furnished room.
Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas to decorate our bedroom with amazing designed furniture. sometimes we have attractive furniture but not that ideas that how can we decorate our room. your ideas are really very useful in such type of situations.
This bedroom would be stunning solely with the striking dark grey wall panel and monochrome bedding, but the addition of the rich ochre throw, writing desk, vintage chair and chic accessories adds an extra element that takes this stylish scheme to a whole new level.
Revamping a teenage son’s bedroom? How about this clean-cut but cosy scheme? A stylish ottoman at the end of the bed provides an easy, clear-away-clutter storage solution and a desk doubles up as grooming table in case the young man is fond of a little preening.
When I began Benji’s room, it was all about getting to know him. Benji has a twin brother so I wanted to make sure when designing their rooms that their different personalities were expressed. I soon found out that Benji’s favourite color was blue, so blue was a must. I also found out that Benji was interested in travel, the world, and had a very inquisitive mind. These two details were then the theme for my design. I used a large blue rug so that blue was prominent in his room but I didn’t want it to be dark and dreary so I chose a yellow to lift the blue and then used accents of both blue and yellow around the room. To inspire his travel goals, I added a world map on one wall and commissioned a small hand painted compass mural on another wall. I love this space as it’s light, bright, stylish and still reflects Benji’s fun, adventurous personality
The main bedroom in the Florescu’s modern Chelsea home follows a fresh decoration scheme – mainly white with touches of rich turquoise and sunny yellow. Through the door is a glimpse into Lizzie’s study – a studious sanctury with fitted bookshelves and a cosy armchair.
Bold colours and a variety of smart textures and weaves showcase wool’s versatility in this bedroom. Green ‘Fennel Leaf’ walls (paint from Sanderson) and padded headboards feature in this twin room. The latter are ‘Olympe’ from Ensemblier London and covered in ‘Folklore’ by designer Kit Kemp, available from Christopher Farr Cloth.
I adore a nursery that is simple, bright and happy – this space in Australia made me smile the second I spotted it. From the clean white walls (that can be easily touched up when the toddler years start!), bold illustrations on the walls, to the cosy chair with cool cushions for feeding or cuddles, it’s my idea of a gorgeous room. I love that midcentury style cabinet with it’s display of vintage toys and fun artwork. It also offers a useful storage solution for all those little things that constantly need tidying away. If I was going to be decorating a baby’s room again, this is a look I would be completely inspired by. It’s perfect for a girl or a boy and a space that they can grow into too. The only thing I would be looking to add is something hanging from the ceiling. Babies love to look up, so a mobile or a garland would be great above the cot. Image Credit
