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.

There is a time in every girl’s life where there’s no harm in being a little OTT. Bright pink French-style furniture, upholstered button-back bed, feathers, sheep-skin, chandeliers… Pourquoi pas for the little princess?!
I love the Scandi simplicity of this girl’s bedroom. Loft rooms are like a dream for most children – they are cosy, snug and a bit different. With this lovely white backdrop you can create a calm and uncluttered space – the mixture of white, pink and blue accessories make the room so modern. Current trends for girls’ bedrooms are veering away from the pink saturation approach of latter years, and moving towards something more creative and meaningful. You can decorate a room like this with slightly more nursery-like accessories to begin with and then up-style when your girl grows older. This can see your child through from baby, towards secondary school age – saving a fortune in decorating costs. On a final note, what’s not to love about the wonderful crepe lanterns and the cute lamb wall art?! Image Credit
During the initial design stages we find it interesting to focus on one key piece and use its colours, look and feel as a starting point for inspiration – this could be anything from a statement painting to an antique rug. Image credit
Today’s teenagers are design-conscious and up to date on the latest trends. But they’re torn between childhood and adulthood. Most teens have beloved toys they’re not ready to give up, but look for a room that’s older and more sophisticated than their childhood room.
Pattern plays a starring role in the main bedroom of this Chelsea house, the work of decorator Paolo Moschino. This unusual leaf-trellis design is part of his range for Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam, and has been used for the curtains, bedhead, cushions and chairs and costs £99 a metre. The sisal wallcovering is ‘Sable NC07’ from Clarence House. The bench is 19th-century Italian, while the mahogany table is English, from the same period.
I’m 13 and I like to say that these layouts, ideas for bedrooms are great. Considering the fact that i have a big bedroom. I do agree with you Olivia 12 is the best, I love that they are not afraid of putting a little spot up there to chill or even to just sit there and enjoy time. It may be hard to believe that I have a room that big but it is very true.
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.
Create a fresh, Moroccan-style look using brightly coloured fabric and accessories against a crisp white background. A DIY trim of cotton pom poms (‘Sherbert Pips’, £7.95 a metre from Clothkits) on the bedcover adds an inspired touch, while the matching Designers Guild curtains and cushion (‘Savine’, £140 a metre) ties it all together.
This bedroom manages to be both dramatic and elegantly muted. The scheme pairs the traditional – notably, the curtains – with modern elements, including glistening surfaces. A large painting by Ghada Amer hangs above the bed, while a comfortable headboard continues the cream palette.
An archway was built to frame French windows that allow light to pour into a teal-coloured bedroom full of Moroccan treasures in Vanessa Branson’s 28-bedroom Marrakech riad hotel El Fenn, where artwork inhabits every wall.
A silver frame and accented wall light compliment the muted blues, greys and greens in the spare bedroom of Giles Vincent’s west London townhouse. The blue striped headboard adds a nautical touch to the room, while fresh flowers on the bedside table brighten-up the space.
Define each area with a clear purpose, so that every inch of space works hard. Here, a desk doubles up as a dressing table with built-in drawers and three pretty mirrors. This clever trundle bed is perfect for weekend sleepovers!
Bedrooms aren’t just for sleeping anymore. This hanging bubble chair provides a unique place to read and study, as well as the girls only ladder-accessible secret hideout. To keep this spacious bedroom from getting cluttered, designer Randy Weinstein added plenty of storage options, from the modern open bookshelf to the built-in closet organizer.
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 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
The bedroom furniture in Steffanie Brown’s west London home is a mix of modern and vintage. The 1940s bedside tables come from Interior Eden, while the chair is from B&B Italia. Stephanie owns Notting Hill-based jewellers Laviandbelle, and used decorator Henri Fitzwilliam-Lay to help design her modern family home.
The addition of a large basement extension to this Edwardian house with bright, modern interiors freed up space on the upper floors for bright and capacious rooms, and created a more fluid layout ideal for family living.
In fact, your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
These rooms are awesome! Really love the graffiti wall and blackboard wall; I think feature walls really make a room stand out. I have found some brilliant teen bedroom ideas recently, a great range to suit all budgets.

This small country style bedroom features a single divan bed base, furnished with a bespoke headboard covered in a floral linen from Cabbages & Roses. The crisp cotton bedding is overlaid with a quilt and the walls are painted in a deep green – ’12B25′ Armour Guard acrylic-enamel eco-friendly paint from PaintPlus. The vintage industrial-style bedside table is topped with a lamp made from an old cake tin.
im a teenager, and for me i personally like alot of these designs, there not all stereotypical. but it does seem like an old woman has made them and she doesnt really know what teenagers like. so maybe she should get some input from real teenagers
Personally I like a child’s room not to have a theme, instead adding decorative touches, so that they can grow with the room. I tend to always steer towards bright pastels and pattern for children, I think it brightens a room and makes them feel clean but cool at the same time. The photo shows a beautiful bedroom for a little girl. I love how it is totally neutral whilst colourful – this room could happily be for a girl or boy of any age. My top picks for a children’s room would always be second-hand furniture painted in beautiful colours, bright simple bed linen, key timeless decorative pieces that can be passed down, photos or artwork to reflect their personalities and loads of storage.

This spare room in the restored Cumbrian farmhouse of Annabel Lewis (owner of V V Rouleaux) has an antique canopied bed covered in toile de Jouy, with a nightstand painted in a matching hue. The unframed paintings and books piled by the bed add a relaxed look to the period features.
Scandinavian style isn’t just whites and woods – quirky prints and playful colour are Nordic hallmarks. (Have you seen Marimekko?). Our top tip? Keep clutter to a minimum and stick to clashing prints in similar colours. Scandi-licious.
