A traditional style, like the British colonial look shown here, doesn’t have to be stuffy. A few shots of color, interesting artwork and accessories, and a pretty upholstered headboard give this classic look fresh sensibilities. Plus, leaning a large mirror against the wall is a great way to add visual size to a small room.
There’s something so chic about bold black and white paired with freshly painted, crisp white walls. A monochrome duvet is the perfect way to try the trend – and don’t forget to add bright pops of colour (lime green works well, as does the electric blue and tangerine shown here).
This bedroom (from Marks & Spencer) has two key trends. One: Mismatched patterns in muted colours go really well together. And two: If you’re not ambitious enough to try this bookshelf nightstand, simply stack some books to create an ad hoc table.
Soft pastel hues and floral touches against white washed walls create a pretty, spring-like bedroom. The painted decorative iron bench may have been intended for outdoor use but it fits perfectly with the garden-fresh scheme.
Patterns are a recurring theme in Tarquin and Isobel Bilgen’s house; they beautifully match the beams that line the wall in their bedroom. Joss Graham is a good port of call for unusual fabrics; their embroidered horse cover from Uzbekistan (£2,800) dates from about 1900 and would work well as a bedhead. Similarly, an 18th-century French quilt from Katharine Pole (£1,850) is a close match to the Bilgen’s bedcover, made with fabric from Bennison.
The gallery wall above the bed adds a symetrical dimension to the traditional bedroom, making it instantly appealing. (See 100 ideas for hanging art for more tips.) A simple colour palette prompted by pale-grey walls is lifted by the gold and silver details and the headboard, which was made by Lavinia herself using ‘Sukriti’ fabric from Penny Morrison.
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.

The main bedroom of Charles Rutherfoord and Rupert Tyler’s London home is on the first floor. The minamilist space features little else but a bed, a deer hide rug, a taxidermy jaguar and an armchair by Pierre Paulin. Single-pane windows make the most of the garden views.
A pink-and-white striped floor, paired with a painted mural above the chimneypiece (see more of our favourite murals), adds geometric patterns and strong colours to create a fun scheme in this bedroom. The mural adds personality and warmth, as does the neon-yellow side table from Muuto.

A school uniform chair would be a truly special feature for any child or teenager’s room – uniform, sports kit, brownies, cubs, a favourite party dress, any outfit can become an eye-catching piece of furniture with a little imagination.
