The client in this bedroom design needed a sanctuary to escape daily life. Smart storage solutions maximised all available space in their master bedroom creating a calmer, more stylish space. A hidden shoe cupboard, a multi-tasking window seat and His & Hers drawers custom built to fit the awkward window niches exploited every corner and delivered invaluable stowaway space.
It’s always so nice to refresh your space in little ways. You did such a good job. I love what you’ve done with the room in general. I’m actually obsessed with palette headboards my boyfriend is in the process of making us a smaller one, but repurposing it into a bed frame was a great idea. It looks awesome.
Mixing rich colours and pattern can be difficult to get right. Dark patterned blue wallpaper ‘The Brook’ from Morris & Co, which pattern continues around the room adds character and a playful feel. The bright ‘Red and Cream Stripe’ wool kilim rug from Sinclair Till lightly compliments the pattern and helps to balance and tie the room together.

The brief for this Paris bedroom was suitably intangible: she asked to be transported into another world. For decorator Jorge Estevez, who specialises in painting, it was vital his decorations were subtle so she wouldn’t tire of them, and also that there was ‘a feeling of the walls having been there before her’. The result is blissfully peaceful: in the bedroom, rough, eggshell-grey walls are painted with the most delicate of details to provide interest, and barely there friezes frame the doorway. The bedhead was made from an old door found in Brussels.
When Rita arrived, she immediately found the interior plan verging on stark. The owner had warned her that she did not want pattern, but Rita thought this was negotiable. To soften up this bedroom, with its grey faux panelling, she upholstered the bed in a delicate two-tone Italian fabric by Idarica Gazzoni. The pattern is then repeated on a sheer window blind.
This is my ideal bedroom style, I love the use of soft and subtle tones with small injections of colour such as the yellow used in bedside accessory bowl and the brass used on those gorgeous twin wall lamps. Whilst the room is light, with a large window, the space is warm and welcoming with the help of a plush throw, soft sheets and a complementing headboard to the bed. Image credit
Give a simple four-poster bed a sweet update with girly curtains and bedding. Pink fabrics keep the scheme girly, while the off-white walls mean that it can be updated as the grows. Opt for a trundle bed for extra space when friends come to stay, and display their favourite toys proudly in a white-painted shelving unit.
Colour is added to this neutrally decorated bedroom in a Dutch farmhouse using a blue bedspread from The Conran Shop. The bright, modern bedding contrasts beautifully with nineteenth-century antique furnishings including a cupboard, side table and folding screen.
Create a sweet work station for reading or drawing with a small desk and chair and floor lamp. Upcycle a standard white MDF desk with some paint and wallstickers, or take the easier option and choose this one from online children’s store Vertbaudet.
The space might be compact but as a snug sleeping spot it has everything it needs and is given real style with some design-led textiles and accessories. To create the same effect as the walls, try horizontally panelled wall cladding.
So glad you like the ideas! Sadly I couldn’t find the tutorial that went along with that idea, but here is a link to a similar project with instructions: http://17shadesofmade.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/diy1/ hope that helps!
‘He took time to consider each space and how the light falls at different times of day, making every angle, aperture and window a picture in itself. He created contemporary interiors that managed to contrast with and yet enhance the ancient setting.’ Here a Le Corbusier chair sits in harmonious contrasts to its medieval surroundings.
Once the basics are in place, decorating is where the fun begins. Choose a feature to be the focus of your room. That can be a beautifully upholstered headboard, a fancy mirror, a few indoor plants, or simple and clean white bedding combined with a fluffy rug.

Amazing collection Emily! Among all, the design of Alina Isaev is the one that captured my attention the most. Perfect combination of simplicity and elegance, this is what I want my dream room to look like.
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.

Consider the options of a polished room design. With a solid white background detailed with a bold lined border in black, laying the foundation for the polished theme is easy. Incorporate your desired pops of color with bright-bordered sheet sets and throw pillows for the room. Keeping your treasured memories close by is easy with frames of different sizes and finishes to hang around the room.
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.
