A cozy, pillow-lined window seat is the perfect spot for a teen girl to write, read or imagine. This sweet seat is flanked by pretty white and gold sconces for easy-access reading light and a small side table to hold drinks and snacks. It also doubles as chic built-in storage!
A peppy palette of pinks and yellow-base greens is playful, but it also transitions from a toddler room idea to teen decor. The mix of patterns knows no age barrier and provides plenty of other color options for makeovers later on. For example, the soft sage or fuchsia in the bedding could easily translate into a wall color, and the room would still sport a cohesive design.
personally i think they should be more realistic about the room sizes most kids dont have a room the size of these. and i personally dont like have of these rooms they look to grown up or kinda kidish.
Two headboards? Why not? We love the idea of reusing some reclaimed wood to make a headboard (see how to make one out of old doors here) and then placing another headboard in a different material in front of it (this one is from Zara Home). Very original.
The spare room in this Georgian town house in Ludlow designed by Caroline Harrowby is papered in ‘Alderney’ from Colefax and Fowler. This adds interest to the space, which is light and airy – a fitting style for a small bedroom.
Interior designer Virginia Howard had no intention of moving from Knightsbridge to Pimlico, until a balcony flat in a nineteenth-century garden square changed her mind. The bedroom is decorated in a pale green colour scheme. The elegant, Grade II-listed stucco building overlooks the garden square in central London, bringing the outside in. Two meagre bedrooms were knocked into one generous one, filled with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Baby nurseries don’t have to be swathed in pastels and animal motifs. For a more sophisticated look, start with a foundation of warm and soothing grays, and use geometric or abstract patterns. In this nursery, a single pattern on the window treatments and bed skirt furthers the minimalist vibe. Look for ways to take advantage of every nook in a kid’s rooms. Here, a changing table tucks perfectly into a small alcove, leaving more available floor space.
Every room needs a splash of pattern. In this trendy pre-teen room, an accent of cheerful lavender wallpaper pops perfectly against crisp white furniture and built-ins. The pattern is repeated in the window coverings in the room. Colorful pillows and bedding pull in more colors from the girl’s bedroom wallpaper and tie the color scheme together. Finally, the area rug packs the last punch in this busy, but cohesive room. With wallpaper and patterns as fun as this, there’s no need for girl’s bedroom wall decor.
As much as possible, owner Anne-Marie tried to match the wall colours to those that her grandmother had used, keeping the bedrooms the same subtle colours, but adding ‘ribbons’ of colour to outline the architecture and ‘dress the room’.
With a Damien Hirst artwork and a vintage chandelier, this little girl’s room in Bayswater designed by Fiona Parke of Johnston Parke Interiors is certainly at the fancier end of the spectrum. The bed is upholstered in Abbott & Boyd linen and has two drawers for storing toys.
This family home in Notting Hill was the work of Maria Speake, who along with husband Adam owns reclamation company Retrouvius. The children’s bedroom is decorated in Maria’s playful style, with bright green carpets, bold patterns and fun birch-ply shelving. The curtain fabric is by Svenskt Tenn.
This scheme was put together by House & Garden’s Ruth Sleightholme. The Modern Scandinavian bedroom is complemented with this walnut bed, ‘Companions’, by Ilse Crawford for De La Espada, 110 x 215 x 200cm, £4,386, at The Conran Shop.
If you are going to opt for minimalism in only one room in your house, that room should be the bedroom. No distractions for relaxation and a perfect nights sleep. Although this white bedroom scheme is definitely minimalist, I like the fact it has warmth due to the herringbone floor and interest added with the contemporary four poster. The simple bedding looks luxurious too and I would be more than happy to take a nap between those sheets. Image credit

The addition of a large basement extension to this Edwardian house 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.
Combining classical proportions and traditional furnishings with the informal elements of family life, this house in Cornwall has proved to be the perfect acquisition for its owners. The house was built in about 1840 for Reverend Samuel Wallis, a founding fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford, who inherited the estate and promptly commissioned Plymouth architect George Wightwick, a former assistant to Sir John Soane, to replace the existing house. An eighteenth-century bed in a spare room has a canopy and valance in a reproduction chintz to complement the period features.
Before moving in, the owners asked the interior designer, architectural historian and natural paint expert Edward Bulmer for his help. ‘Edward has a marvellous eye,’ says the owner. ‘We worked with him at our previous home. He has a great feel for colour and he is fantastic at arranging furniture and pictures.’

As you may know, I don’t have a daughter. I’m expecting my fourth little boy and I could not be more excited. The only downside to that is I would LOVE to decorate a girl’s room! I have a pretty girly craft room but for now I’ll live vicariously through these amazing ladies’ design skills! I am obsessed with each and every one of these adorable girls room ideas. I hope you find some inspiration if you’re looking to redecorate your girl’s room or if your little one is ready for her first “Big girl” room! Oh my gosh, so fun!
This kid’s room by member of The List Room to Bloom features subtle dusty purple and gold accents against a neutral colour palette (see our white room ideas and how to use white paint). This design shows how to create a child’s room that is both magical and quite ‘grown-up’, which means there will be no need for a complete redesign within a couple of years.
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.
The reason I love this bedroom is due to its refined elegance. The simple colour palette makes for a wonderfully calming master bedroom. The classic Ralph Lauren pinstripe walls serve as the perfect backdrop for the stunning navy upholstered bed, with its many layers of cushions and throws creating a hotel-like feel. From the beautiful symmetry presented through every aspect of this room, to the many sumptuous textures, this bedroom reflects the perfect marriage of classic style with distinctive contemporary touches.

Teen bedroom ideas should include functions specific to their age, as well as look great. While adults prefer a space that’s calm and understated, teens appreciate vibrant, high energy rooms. Keep the following teen bedroom ideas in mind.

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.
