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.
In this Paris flat, London-based designer Tara Craig has used a strong, simple palette with devastating effect. The walls of the spare bedroom are painted in ‘Papaver’ by Adam Bray for Papers and Paints, with an imposing ‘Carlyle’ headboard from Ensemblier London upholstered in ‘Serpetti’ linen by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Now, isn’t this cosy? The key to a cream scheme: texture, texture, texture. Make a bed in a mix of crisp cotton, soft knits and faux fur. Add some wood elements and top with the perfect pendant light.
Girls bedroom ideas, like these, reflect to a mother’s imagination. This is a traditional bedroom, done up predominantly in pink colour, generally associated with girls. The hearts on the wall paper and the curtains leave my heart fluttering. Again the pillow cover and the window treatment have been streamlined and is looking beautiful.
I love glamorous bedrooms that are sophisticated and not too glitzy. I love this bedroom because, even though it’s flowery, it has a masculine edge – due to the opulent dark walls and pared-back design integrity of the rest of the room. It’s a great bedroom for both men and women, which I like, as I think sometimes us ladies can sometimes take over the design of our bedrooms! Image credit

There’s a few things that are key to how you feel when you walk into your bedroom – mainly it comes down to floors, walls, furniture and decoration. If you’re renting you may not be able to touch the floors or walls and will have to work with what you have. If it’s your own house however, you may be wondering which colour to paint the walls so they go with your floors, or so you can make a small bedroom appear bigger. Pay attention to these elements in the photos.
The refurbishment of this central London townhouse was a case of sisters doing it for themselves; interior designer Amanda Baring’s sister is the owner. A painting of a party dress hangs in a frame (see how to do your own version here) while curtains made from ‘Les Chiens’ cotton from Clarence House add a playful note to the bedroom, which mixes an array of print and pattern.
Upstairs in the main bedroom of this farmhouse in the Chilterns hangs a collection of John Nash watercolours. ‘I love them, they represent my England; it makes me happy looking at them,’ says the owner. The magnificent Tabriz carpet is reputed to have come from the house of the poet and arts patron Edward James, West Dean in Sussex. The neutral walls allow pieces such as the bold Tabriz carpet and dark wood chest to take centre stage.
This bedroom is an ode to antiquity with touches of the Neoclassical, Empire Style and Classical-inspired littered throughout the space, most of which was designed and made by Alexander himself – the headboard with colours of an Attic vase, for example. Follow Breeze’s lead, pick up a pot of paint and get with patterns and motifs from your favourite era!
If space is at a premium in your little one’s room, try pushing the bed against a wall. With the bed out of the way, she’ll have plenty of play space on the floor—which will also prevent toys from cluttering up your living spaces. An upholstered queen-size headboard along the bedside creates the look of a daybed and keeps kids safe from rolling between the bed and the wall while they sleep.
This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions.
Thomas Clifford and his wife Clarissa have risen to the challenge of restoring Ugbrooke Park in Devon, which now has 12 main bedrooms and some charming turret rooms. This bedroom has a four poster bed with beautifully intricate details on its pelmet. The neutral colour of the walls is reflected by the bed dressings.
Even at a young age, kids accumulate countless books and toys. Use them to add colour to the room by displaying them on a stylish bookcase or in a glass fronted cabinet. Marcus Peel for 1st-option.com
The main bedroom of this Richmond mansion flat designed by Johnny Holland of Hackett Holland is decorated in dark colours to exaggerate its cosiness while the range of textures create a feeling of luxury. One corner has been hived off to form a walk-in wardrobe, which is papered with a tropical Ananbô wallpaper and overlaid with a grid of panelling to give it added depth.
If we were to have a house in the Hamptons this is how we imagine it would be decorated, but let’s face it, the combination of wall cladding, print bedding and a picture wall of pretty illustrations would look good anywhere.
The owner of this family home in Chelsea has a collection of Fifties, Norwegian abstract-expressionist art; instead of basing his scheme around the colours in the paintings, designer Stephen Eicker cleverly mirrored the rich shades with layers of vibrant fabrics and thickly applied paints instead. The vibrant fabric used as wallcovering in the spare room is by Claremont.
This child’s room showcases youthful sophistication for growing girls. Offset from the bedroom, the lavender playroom provides plenty of space for playing games and entertaining friends. The lime linen settee is the perfect place to read a book while enjoying the sweeping outdoor views. By creating a clear separation between the bedroom and playroom, both rooms have a clear and defined purpose. Design by Jennifer Duneier
The twin beds in one of the children’s rooms of Harriet Logan and Mark Faulkner’s home are the ‘Mini’, by Zanotta. Interior designer Andrew Fossey and Chris Dyson Architects were behind the renovation of the Georgian property in Spitalfields in London’s East End. Harriet and Mark are the co-founders of Woop Studios, which designs and sells limited-edition prints via an online gallery.
The main bedroom of this London flat is particularly sumptuous, with its flower-trail Braquenié wallpaper, figured cotton Fortuny bedspread and strawberry-silk cushions – a lesson in how to make a potentially gloomy space glow (the space was a former Victorian hospital building). The flat is the work of antiques dealer and interior designer Max Rollitt, who found the bird pictures hung above the bed in an antiques shop. If you don’t have the same eagle eye, try reproduction prints from Surface View. Dimensions and prices vary for each print, but start roughly at 90 x 60cm and £175.
