The owners of this west London house employed a skilled team to restore its original features, and create a home with a feeling of permanence after a lifetime of moving. The house is a tall, mid-nineteenth-century white stucco building that they wanted to work well for twenty-first-century family life. ‘We were determined to avoid beige banker chic,’ the owner explains. The daughter’s diminutive bedroom is hung with Cole & Son’s ‘Hummingbirds’ wallpaper.
I love this bedroom for a number of reasons: it just looks so calm, relaxing and welcoming. It belongs to Netherlands-based interior stylist and journalist Holly Marder, who has a fab blog called Avenue Lifestyle. When you see the before images you will realise just how successful this bedroom makeover has been. Before it was dark and decorated in a garish purple and orange, but Holly has transformed it into a calm retreat by painting the floorboards and walls white. I like how the design is asymmetrical, there’s two different bedside tables, two different lamps, and a cluster of framed pictures on just one side, but it still really works, you don’t have to be too rigid and use the same thing on each side, especially when there are two different people in the bed, with two different personalities!

Sedate and restful are good, general concepts for adult bedroom design, but teenagers prefer a bedroom that’s fun and a signature of who they are. The number one response to what personality aspect a teen wants to express through their room was “creative”, while calm came in almost last. Bold, imaginative elements will excite a teen like nothing else. Some unique teen bedroom ideas that add fun to a room include:
A painted headboard by Paola Cumiskey adds elegance to the main bedroom of this Norfolk village house belonging to Alan and Sarah Wilson. The house was designed by George Carter (who is known primarily for his award-winning gardens).
The small white bedroom on the second floor of this Victorian terrace house had been painted a rather gloomy blue. To make the most of the light, newlyweds Sophie and Dan opted to repaint the room with Dulux’s ‘Pure Brilliant White’ while lemon yellow accents bring further warmth to the room. The divan bed is furnished with a buttoned ‘Bekkestua’ headboard from Ikea and the cane mirror hung over the bed was bought on a trip to Saffron Walden.
Omg ! I really liked your decoration photos and decoration ideas ! These photos are amazing. If you let me plz, I want to add my blog Decoratingo.

This compact children’s room is brightened up with soft pink walls, while the dark wooden beams add definition as well as providing natural shelving. White furniture is ideal for giving the impression of more space in a small scheme.
Soft white walls set the tone in this modern bedroom, which also features a run of bespoke cupboards. These divide the bedroom from the hallway. A simple, rustic tree stump is used as a bedside table, adding to the natural feel of the scheme. Create a similar effect with ‘Lozano’ by Swoon Editions.
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!
The bedroom should be one of the most comfortable and relaxing rooms in your home. That’s why I prefer a warm, soothing colour palette that helps you to unwind after a long day. I feel that gold accents and luxurious textiles such as velvet and silk complement warmer tones very well and give it a high-end look without compromising the comfort. I like the rest of the decor quite minimalist though so the room doesn’t look too busy. Simple and chic is the way to go! Image credit
Soft colors and classic style will keep this girl’s room timeless for years to come. Neutral walls and furniture create a sense of unity and allow patterned bedding and window treatments to be the center of attention. A pattern that isn’t too age-specific allows for her creativity to shine in wall art and painting hung around the room. Lighting treatments are similar with neutral bases and lampshades that can easily be switched out at a low cost.
Hi, I am 13 almost 14 and in this next 2018 April or summer I will be moving. I have always shared a room, but I will have my own room. I never thought of having my own room and want it to be great. These are all super pretty and cool. But I just don’t know what kind of room I want, like what style or theme, it’s all so crazy. But these are great. They help me think of what I want. But I don’t know. I don’t know if you can help me, but thanks!
This small bedroom has dark green walls in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Olive’ paint. The single divan bed base is furnished with a ‘Casati’ headboard from Ensemblier London upholstered in ‘Faded Monochrome Teal Roses’ from Bennison. A limed wood antique commode is used as a bedside table, topped with a pile of books and simple glass vase filled with fresh flowers.
I agree with Sarah Akwisombe’s statement. I too, enjoy having a room in dark colours because it’s super inviting and makes me want to sleep and relax. However, I am not a fan of brown colour on anything else than wood. I see that most of the pictures here portray white bedrooms… the least appropriate colour for a bedroom in my opinion.

The main bedroom in this Belgravia house is decorated with a sophisticated mix of geometric patterns, brass finishes and decorative bits and bobs. The focus is on the details in this room, including a geometric cushion by Jan Showers and a Ralph Lauren bedside lamp.
Not sure if a neutral palette is attention-worthy? Think beyond the expected. Sophisticated florals on the walls, metallic accents, and an elegant light fixture are just enough to make this room sing.
When else in your life can you have a bed that looks like a boat? So indulge your child’s fantasies with a themed room; chic pale blue walls with red and white accessories keep this nautical room uniformed and smart without being garish or twee.
Multipurposing will help a tween get much more use out of her room. To create a tween-height gathering area, consider using a coffee table in the center of the bedroom. Once guests come over, the low stature of the coffee table makes it the perfect spot to pull a pillow and snack while playing games or reading books.
This room is filled with simple styling ideas that make all the difference: a winning colour combination of grey and pink, a feature wall with a clever display rail, some choice bedding and a pretty chandelier. All together, they make up a gorgeous girls’ room.
Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons own this modern, colourful Thirties house in rural Hertfordshire. Built in 1936 by the renowned public sector architect Mary Medd, Sewell’s Orchard was apparently unpopular with the locals at the time, who likened its monopitch roof and pared-back design to that of a canning factory. This is not a view shared by Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons, however, who have lived in and loved the daring modernist property for the past few years.
We’ve loved the grey and citrus colour combination for a long time but this more mellow yellow and grey scheme gives a softer feel to a child’s room. Combined with three perfectly placed prints and some stylish textiles, the whole look is uber chic.
In this country house in Norfolk with interiors designed by Veere Grenney, the Tudor wing is a glorious honeycomb of rooms for the youngest members of the family, where there are enough small beds for the most riotous of sleepovers. Four-poster beds, working fireplaces and generous armchairs make them gloriously comfortable, but the light colour palette, the brightly coloured modern rugs and the carefully chosen pictures and objects dispel any notion of stuffiness. Yellow is a great colour choice for childrens rooms: it’s bright, playful and most importantly gender neutral.
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!
Why I love this room: I’m a great believer in the ‘tidy home, tidy mind’ ethos, which is why I feel so at home with light, minimal spaces. This bedroom has only essential furniture in it and bright white walls to make the most of the light. Texture is key, from the bedding and rugs to the Z1 cotton lamp. I love the use of the small potted plants here, adding life and a splash of vibrant green to the room. The light wood flooring breaks up the white to introduce some warmth and the suspended clothes rails make a statement without the need to take up floor space. Image credit
