Fiona Shelburne has a lot of experience decorating country homes, so she knew what she had to do when it came to this Hampshire home. The beautifully crafted four-poster bed, made by Richard Phillips, has red Le Cuona linen curtains; to lift the mood of the room, the inner fabric is the Claremont print ‘Plumettes’. Two bedside tables by Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam are surmounted by French grisaille-painted mirrors. ‘The velvety carpet from Tim Page is lovely underfoot, says Fiona Shelburne, ‘but it has to be vacuumed all in one direction, rather like a cricket pitch. It looks its best covered with masses of tiny footprints at the end of the family weekend.’

In this kids’ bedroom, the white walls, ceiling, carpet and bedding are brought to life with patterned blinds, headboards and a colourful rug. All of the patterns are different, introducing an element of fun to the minimal room. It is the perfect design for a children’s bedroom in a holiday home.
I love so much about this baby/toddler room interior. The bunting across the blind really sets a tone for the room and I love the lights hanging off of the ladder, they add a touch of warmth and cosiness to the room – which is exactly how every baby or child’s room should feel. I love that the floors and walls are bright. There’s a blue, white and grey theme which is fantastic because it suits a young baby as well as being grown up enough for a toddler. We’re re-doing our boys’ rooms this year and this image among others is where we’re taking inspiration from. I plan to use a light laminate floor like here and opt for light walls too, contrasting it by using colourful accessories. I think that when it comes to children’s interiors it’s fine to want to go modern, but it’s important to make sure that the room both reflects your child’s personality and is fun and young at the same time.

The girly one, the tomboy. the artsy, the jock, EVERYONE. So you may not like it, but that doesn’t mean there not good designs.They each have great color and beautiful peices that coordinate well with each other. The pictures are something that could be totally different! These weren’t meant to be copied exactly. Just to give you ideas and peices. And that’s coming from a thirteen year old girl aspiriring to be and interior designer.
Pine bunk beds at Soho Farmhouse with plenty of cushions make for a cosy and relaxed bedroom space. Bedding is neutral to prevent the space from becoming a gaudy cabin. This is a perfect decoration scheme for a kid’s room at a vacation home.
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.
The bedroom of this London townhouse is the work of Amanda Baring, who designed it for her sister, the owner. The neutral hues keep it calm and warm, while a collection of black and white etchings decorate the walls.
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.
Who wouldn’t wake up full of the joys of spring in this light filled, summery bedroom? If you can’t afford to fill your room with garden flowers don’t worry, the fresh floral textiles and painted white gloss floor (which reflects the natural light) will do the trick alone.
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.
