Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons own this mid-century house, built in 1936 by the renowned public sector architect Mary Medd. Vintage Star Wars figures are displayed in one of the boys’ bedrooms, with the white backdrop making the colours of the furniture and accessories even more striking.
Hi Courtney! Wow, what a great site you have here! So many awesome ideas in one place. My daughter started college this year, and when she gets a chance to come home we are going to the tie-dyed pillows for her dorm room. Thanks so much for the great ideas and keep up the good work! ?
Jeanetta Rowan-Hamilton of Nettles Cashmere restored her tin-roofed fishing lodge after inheriting it from her parents. She abhors waste and loves change of usage, and is often seen in the salvage section of her local antiques shop. In one of the four bedrooms, Jeanetta has repainted this pair of Victorian beds that were her grandmother’s. The neutral tongue and groove walls and ceiling brings the feel of old and new together.
This light and airy bedroom looks like a wonderful getaway. The symmetry of the space and decor makes for a pleasing view and you can just imagine yourself watching the clouds go by through those sky lights! I love how the dark green tone and botanical cushion prints bring a little of the outside in. In my opinion, adding a feline friend will always make your space seem welcoming! Image credit
The main bedroom of Jo Vestey’s Oxfordshire farmhouse has Jo’s photographs on display and a Japanese light on the desk. Exposed beams, wooden floorboards and the desk contrast nicely with the white rug and walls, giving an overall look that is both clean and rustic.
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 and a mix of fabric textures.
Paired with white furniture, bedding and accessories, teal wall paint makes a chic splash in this cozy retreat. A wall-mounted flat screen TV is blended into a gallery wall for a design that’s both stylish and functional.
The vintage photos and beautiful wooden bed (with a built-in bookcase, natch) isn’t the only reason this is a dream bedroom. One of two bedrooms in the Royal Suite at The Goring hotel in London, it also features a private balcony which runs the entire length of the building, overlooking the hotel’s private garden and the London rooftops beyond. Suite dreams…
I prefer the cottage/farmhouse look in my home, though I live in a patio apartment. The bedroom above is typical of how I decorate. I’m really into the black, red, gray and white color combination. Also, this bedroom has a lot of textural elements that give it character and charm. The rug on the floor. And the wicker trunk at the end of the bed. I also love anything vintage, and having a piece of furniture that perhaps belonged to grandma fits right in. The red blanket on the wicker trunk looks handy to pull up when you’re reading a book or taking an afternoon nap. My blog is about coziness – so my rooms have to include that element to encompass all that I love about decorating. This is a cozy room. And that’s what I love most about it. Image credit
The owner loves the spare aesthetic of the bamboo. ‘It is not overwhelming, just a very simple and pure design, not trying to impress, nestled in the leaves, just hanging on the cliff.’ The house was designed by Veere Grenney.
I actuallly really like these rooms, there really neat. But in case you havn’t noticed alot of teen girls(or at least the ones i know), aren’t exactly up there on the money scale. i mean there not broke, but they cant go buy stuff like this for an affordable price. And usually the ones who can, well they dont use the internet for there bedroom ideas. They probably use the months top teen room magazine or somthing like that.lol I’m just saying, the girls that actually use this site for ideas probably wouldnt be able to use this stuff. Maybey a more realistic list of teen room would be better for our use. Besides real talent is making your room look amazing with a small bugdet. Being creative!
The key to successful children’s bedroom design is clever storage. Make storage practical, accessible and easy to use, so that children have a place where everything goes. Encourage children to have an input into the colour scheme or theme, if they buy into the idea of the room from the start and have a hand in how it is planned and arranged, then they are more likely to take pride in keeping it organised and tidy. Baskets, trays, cupboards with doors and drawers are all good options. If you have the luxury of space then try to keep storage to the outer edges of the room so that children have a clearly identifiable place in which to play. Room to play in a free and unstructured way allows children to be more imaginative in their learning. Image Credit
This bedroom would be stunning solely with the striking dark grey wall panel and monochrome bedding, but the addition of the rich ochre throw, writing desk, vintage chair and chic accessories adds an extra element that takes this stylish scheme to a whole new level.
I absolutely adore decorating my children’s bedrooms from their nursery start to their teenage finish, as each stage requires something different. We are in the school-boy phase at the moment with my son so we wanted to create a bedroom for him that showcased his personality as much as his age. We chose a daybed here with underneath drawer storage for his clothes and a pull out bed to turn it into a double bed, if he had a sleepover. I like to choose a theme that won’t over-power a room and one that can grow with him too. We went for a red and navy theme with a London twist. I like to keep the bedrooms neutral and when it’s time to change the theme you don’t also have to change the wallpaper and furniture too. Kids enjoy space to roam free so I don’t like it to be cluttered too much with more furniture. My son doesn’t have a dresser as we have plenty of space in these drawers under his bed and in his wardrobe. This leaves more space for his toys and room to play. I think the best thing to do is think of how you can make the space functional for your little one that screams his/her personality but in a way they can love it and grow with it over the years with minimal changes.
Sharing a room as a teenager can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be ugly! In this pretty space, designer Kristina Crestin dressed two full-sized beds in matching white ruffled bedding and plush fur throws, hanging each girl’s monogram above her bed for personalization. A shared midcentury modern dresser doubles as a nightstand and is a cool contrast to feminine pink ruffled curtains.
As this 1970s-style sleeping space shows, interior design often comes full circle – just like with fashion. For a look that’s chic rather than kitsch, mix in some modern elements for an inspired, not imitating look.
In this modern city flat that has been transformed from a stark new-build to a characterful home, the use of a natural palette full of texture and earthy tones continues in this bedroom, creating a calm and peaceful space.
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.
Anne-Marie Midy inherited this house in the south of France and has since lovingly restored it to refresh the interiors without losing the charm of the space. Anne-Marie Midy and her husband own the Mexican furniture company Casamidy.
