When Tom Siebens and Mimi Parsons took the decision to downsize from a large five bedroom terrace to a distinctly more compact space in west London, they enlisted the help of decorator David Bentheim to create a modern, practical scheme. The two bedrooms are both small but ergonomic with floor-to-ceiling cupboards and a distinct colour scheme to add individual personality. Here Gayle Warwick linen in lime green provides punch.
The interior designer behind this West London home was Ebba Thott. In the spare room a steel four poster bed, a modern take on a timeless classic, sits comfortably alongside a custom-coloured blue and white chintz by Marthe Armitage. The bedcover is by Holland & Sherry through Lelièvre in Paris.
In the main bedroom of this London house, two rows of framed antique pressed flowers bought from the owner’s friend Charlie McCormick line the walls. The headboard, which is upholstered in a hand-dyed pink velvet by Kirsten Hecktermann, with the same velvet used for the panelling between the bedroom and bathroom. Kirsten copied the colour from a small piece of eighteenth-century ribbon that belonged to Henrietta, who describes it as being – ‘the colour of rhubarb stems’. Above the chimneypiece is a pair of candle sconces from another friend – Lulu Lytle of Soane, on the Pimlico Road.
‘We loved the cool, pared-down style of a house belonging to a Swedish art collector, which we had seen in a magazine,’ say the owners of this west-London terrace home. Enter Hugh Leslie whose unmistakable style gradually evolved the house into a smart family home. At the front of the house on the first floor is the pretty, generously proportioned main bedroom. Its walls are lined with the same buff-pink linen (‘Prelle Toile Barbare’ fabric by Alton Brooke) as the pelmets and the curtains, which adds an extra touch of glamour to the room. Behind it is the en-suite bathroom, with simple panelling, hand-built units and a walk-in shower lined in teak, which feels a bit like entering a first-class compartment on a vintage train.
New England chic pervades the upstairs of restaurant owner Keith McNally’s Notting Hill house. Reclaimed floorboards are in the main bedroom, along with an antique iron hospital-style bedstead. Navajo blankets in rich shades of red are draped over the sofas and beds throughout the house. The effect is stylish and relaxed. If you are on the lookout for something similar, Sacha Knight’s new venture, Knight Mills, does a similar look. Influenced by American Indian designs, her handwoven cotton rugs measure 180 x 120cm and cost £390.
This bedroom is an ode to antiquity with touches of the Neoclassical, Empire Style and Classical-inspired littered throughout the space, most of which was designed and made by Alexander himself – the headboard with colours of an Attic vase, for example. Follow Breeze’s lead, pick up a pot of paint and get experimenting with patterns and motifs from your favourite era!

It’s the little details that make this room so appealing. Storage is cleverly hidden away, while the four-poster bed tucked into the alcove is a subtle style statement. The texture on the bedspread and pop of red are the perfect finishing touches.
This little girl’s room designed by member of The List Wickenden Hutley has a lovely calm palette of creams and whites. Elegant details such as the glass chandelier and the thick curtains are combined with classic toys such as a doll’s house and little car. The Lou Ghost chairs, a miniature version of Phillipe Starck’s iconic Ghost design for Kartell, provide a very chic little drawing station.
If you’re a ‘less is more’ person then this is the bedroom scheme for you. The key is in keeping colours muted but the furniture interesting – the four-poster bed has presence and works well with the high ceilings in this room; anything less and the room may feel bare.
Bright curtains add colour to the otherwise neutral main bedroom in the Virginia home of artist Anne Massie. The fabric is Penny Morrison’s bold ‘Haveli’ linen, custom dyed Annie’s favourite shade of pink.
Now, isn’t this cosy? The key to a cream scheme: texture, texture, texture. Make a bed in a mix of crisp cotton, soft knits and faux fur. Add some wood elements and top with the perfect pendant light.
These are way too overboard. I mean who has money to do all this. I personally do not like any of them. Some are too girly whille others are just plain ew. Put something that could possibly be real please.
Made.com founder Chloe Macintosh’s bedroom is an elegant combination of deep blue walls and oatmeal coloured stripes. For fabric with a similar feel try Romo or Le Gracieux, who both do a striped cotton with a similarly painterly feel.
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.

It is always recommended to select simple and elegant teen bedroom furniture instead of spending lots of money on them. Select a simple bed (or bunk bed) and club it with a functional desk, wardrobe, and drawer. If there is ample of free space in the room, you may consider creating a casual seating space. Low lying chairs or sofa featuring colorful cushions with a small coffee table would do the needful.
The rich, witty and wonderfully eclectic interiors of designer Nicky Haslam’s sixteenth-century, gothic-revival hunting lodge have long been coveted by all of us here at House & Garden. So when we heard he was producing a furniture range for Oka, based on pieces from his own home, we were extremely excited. Following his motto ‘use something red and gothic in each room and you’re all right,’ the collection has ogees, points, tracery and quatrefoils a-plenty, offering the chance to recreate at least a part of his look. House & Garden shot the collection in situ at the house. Here in the bedroom ‘The Original Orangery Stepped’ bedside table, works beautifully with the vertical floral border on the wall (a lovely decorative idea for older houses) and antique chintz bed canopy.
Decoration in a bedroom boils down to a few key elements: pick a theme, add interesting accents and a dash of contrast. In this case, the contrast comes from the more masculine chrome touches and button-detail cushion.
The main bedroom in Susan Deliss’s country house in France has a simple headboard made from an antique suzani. The bed is spread with an antique quilt, hand-dyed by Susan with indigo. She has mounted an antique Ikat textile to create an artwork for the wall.
