We love this look because of the fresh take on what could potentially be a period interior. The yellow wall brings it bang up-to-date, freshening the space and bringing the whole room to life. The antique touches of mismatched frames, the oversized wooden bed, stripped back floorboards and the old chandelier contrast perfectly with the statement wall giving it oodles of character. The picture rail breaks up the room giving it plenty of height but the patchwork quilt, rug and cushions keep the room cosy. Image credit
The stuff of dreams. Author and designer Paul Golding spent seven years restoring this this exquisite 18th century palazzo in Malta. ‘I couldn’t resist its romantic decay!’ Built by the distinguished Maltese architect Francesco Sammut, the bedroom is stenciled with a pattern copied from a Carmelite convent in Medina. The chandelier is from Julian Chichester, while the magnificent gesso and silver gilt bed and table were commissioned from Brighton-based furniture maker Lincoln Cato.
There’s no denying that many little girls love all things pink, but that doesn’t mean a girl’s room has to look like a bubblegum factory. The bedroom from Steele Street Studios shown here demonstrates how well neutrals can work in a girl’s bedroom. The wonderful lighting fixture, fun pennant banner, and polka dot bedding add just enough whimsy to the space, yet the overall look is rather sophisticated.
Near the site of a Sussex country house demolished in 1911, Richard Taylor and Rick Englert have built a Jacobean-style manor at Whithurst Park. It took a year to get planning permission and two more to build. The result is certainly striking and bears some of the signatures of the prodigy houses built in the era that its design evokes, such as Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire and Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. But as Kit explains, ‘It was the site itself and essence of Sussexness that made me design it as I did.’

In a bedroom at Cadland House in Hampshire, twin beds 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.
This sweet, galleried play area designed by Trine Miller, has the dual function of creating an adventurous play space, while also keeping toys contained and out of view. ‘The idea was that the gallery was very much their private space,’ says Trine, ‘rather like a tree house.’ Beneath, a small bathroom has been installed.

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.
Wooden flooring can give a clean, spacious look, but unless you have underfloor heating, carpeting is the cosier option, bearing in mind that you’ll be walking around in bare feet at least some of the time. Another point to consider, if you’re a light sleeper or live in a neighbourhood where it can be noisy at night, is that carpets can help to muffle sounds, whereas wooden floors won’t. That said, you can always achieve a happy medium with polished floorboards strewn with luxurious, toe-friendly rugs.
What a view! Admittedly, only a lucky few can call an ocean front bedroom their own. However, this bedroom is not just about the view. In my opinion it perfectly interprets what I call the key elements of successful bedroom design: clean lines and uncluttered surfaces in combination with warm materials, rich textures and soothing colours. Add a few pools of light and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a cosy haven of relaxation. In this particular bedroom they took it a further notch up by adding the element of fire, creating a truly harmonious environment and perfect balance. Image credit
For the teen that’s great at keeping her space clean, an all-white bedroom is a luxurious and ultra-cozy option. To pull off this look, add interest with metallic accessories and a mix of fabric textures.
Moody, masculine & deliciously unconventional, Scott Newkirk’s New York bedroom is my idea of the perfect retreat. I love the way he has skilfully coupled a restrained & muted palette with a medley of textural layers from metal & woods to linen, wool & length-upon-length of natural burlap. He has created a surprisingly luxurious getaway which is both atmospheric & calming. Image credit
The addition of a large basement extension to this Edwardian house freed up space on the upper floors for bright and capacious rooms, and a more fluid layout ideal for family living. Owners Dominic and Claire chose design duo Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock to decorate the home.
A room fit for a princess doesn’t have to purely consist of soft pinks. We love the addition of a fiery orange wall and red, orange and purple rug; the clashing hues of which add character to the scheme.
Kit Kemp designed this bedroom for Wool House, a Campaign for Wool exhibition at Somerset house in London. Be inspired similarly by pairing wool items with crisp cottons and shining fabrics like the lamp shade.

I wanted this nursery to be a tranquil yet timeless space. The combination of subtle greys, soft pinks and white furniture is timeless and effortlessly stylish and ensures longevity. Taking inspiration from the vintage wallpaper tree art, I have accented this with brighter pinks and lime greens to punctuate the scheme and add freshness. The cotton curtains, have a playful embroidered band across the bottom featuring cats and birds, adding interest and fun to the scheme and contrasting well with the brighter pink linen blind. There is a useful mix of both open and closed storage. Contemporary pieces (such as the bunny nightlight and the grey acrylic storage stool) are mixed with vintage finds (including the wallpaper used for the tree and the antique children’s books) to create a unique room and one that complements the rest of the home. A sweet sanctuary.
Trudi Ballard, press officer of Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler has decorated her elegant Marrakesh house in a combination of English country-house style with traditional Moroccan elements. A rug – a gift from a friend – brightens the scheme, while the raffia ceiling lights from Henry Cath are a unifying element that has been used in all the bedrooms. The light-filled house opens out from a courtyard with a traditionally tiled, cloistered walkway to one side from which bedrooms lead off, each with its own terrace.
A mezzanine bedroom is the ideal solution for a small space, especially if you fit in a built-in wardrobe behind the bed. But designer Maurizio Pellizzoni had to jump through several hoops to get planning permission for the staircase, which links the mezzanine bedroom to the sitting room. First the staircase had to be craned in, then the council had to close the street while giant glass panels for the bedroom were hoisted up into place. Maurizio refers to this project, done for his friend Andrew Daniell in London’s Shoreditch, as the James Bond flat, because of its technology and slick looks. It’s a bachelor pad, but the striped blanket adds a soft splash of colour in an otherwise monochromatic scheme (find a similar one from Welsh weavers Melin Tregwynt, £95 at John Lewis).
Sometimes, just one small detail which can bring a room together. In this case, the studs surrounding the bed’s cream headboard draws the eye, making the furniture the focal point of the room in the absence of any wall art. A perfect alternative for walls (or homes) where you can’t hang pictures.
This bedroom ticks a lot of boxes for me with the herringbone floor, contemporary light fitting and soft linen bedding. I always have a soft spot for period properties and the owners of this home have highlighted the gorgeous high ceiling with a dusty pink colour – a bold but highly effective way to add colour into a room without it being overwhelming. Also, by bringing the curtain pole the full width of the wall, the curtains do not cover the window at all – allowing for maximum light and a really luxurious feel with all of that lovely soft fabric.

Known for their sensitive restoration of historic buildings in Scotland, conservation architects Nick Groves-Raines and Kristin Hannesdottir relished the challenge of saving Lamb’s House in Leith, where they now live and work. The elegant main bedroom has an original beamed ceiling, complemented by a large rustic wooden headboard.
At the end of a long hard day there is nothing better than lying down on fresh bedding and crisp sheets, but how many of us have a conducive interior style in the bedroom?

I love this luxurious bedroom designed for a colour blind client. The careful mix of pattern and texture maximises the visual impact he gets from it, without being overwhelming for anyone else. It’s a large, bright space that could take a lot of colour without looking busy, and can easily absorb big pieces (the bed is actually a super king). The walk-in wardrobe has a to-die-for amount of storage in addition to the 3 massive wardrobes alongside the bed, which allows for everything to be put away and hidden, so that you can enjoy the bright colours and still have a tranquil space to escape to. Deep jewel tones, such as the turquoise Porta Romana Thread lamps, and matt metallics allow the scheme to be both rich and restful. The style is very much that of a small boutique hotel – creative and encouraging. It’s not a room you go to to unwind and declutter your mind – it’s an exciting destination in itself. Every texture is interesting, inviting and playful. The Stark carpet is wonderfully soft under food, and the silk bed throw from Soak and Sleep has a luxurious and subtle sheen to it. Image credit
Your children are only young once so create a magical environment with furnishings and accessories that will kick start their imaginations. Curtained cubby hole bunkbeds are also a perfect way to give siblings their own space.
In this boys bedroom the floor has become a design feature. Blocks of wood were stained in a variety of colours before being laid in a parquet style. The result is rustic yet aesthetic, modern but not at all clinical. The union jack pillow on the bed is a witty reference to the owners’ time spent in the UK.
Designer Guy Goodfellow has made the window a feature in this manor-house bedroom in Devon. Its casement is painted in Rose of Jericho’s ‘Mountain Green’, framed by thick linen curtains and with a smart seat underneath. The ceiling is painted with floral motifs, giving the appearance of pargeting. To replicate these murals, try the painter Dawn Reader.
This simple and beautiful room though small in size, looks enticing. The zebra print and the pink decals impart a novel idea. The wardrobe and the night stand are just right for the size of the room and provide enough storage capacity.
