Touches of blue introduce colour and pattern in the main bedroom of a divine Provençal house by Andrzej Zarzycki. These include the painted woodwork, patchwork bed cover and large painting by Sarah Pickstone.
How about a minimalist bedroom that will wish you sweet dreams? A bedroom that pleases your senses after a long and busy day. A space that is a balm for the soul of its residents, which creates a sense of sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A Zen space with a subtle extravagant in the form of a marble wall which acts as a blank canvas for other features. A focal point in a form of a cosy bed upholstered with a nice, soft fabric enriched with two asymmetric lamps giving the space an usual and interesting look. There is a large walk-in wardrobe, to the right of the bed, allowing residents to keep the space nice and tidy – perhaps apart from a couple of great books laying around here and there. But who wouldn’t love to lay down on this bed with a good read? Image credit
In this bedroom in Morocco, a large Twenties French poster hung above the low-level bed acts as an extension of the headboard. For similar vintage posters of this size, head to Rennies Seaside Modern in Kent, or visit its online shop.

Add an additional surround to your headboard, painted in a contrasting colour to further frame your bed. We particular love the addtion of the pictures – hung off centre, they are far more interesting.
A dash of vintage, a sprinkle of whimsy and a drop of contemporary all seamlessly intertwined into this gorgeous kid’s room styled by Petite Vintage. The easy to reach storage space makes it easy to tidy up and keep things in their place. Plenty of floor space allows for freedom to move, play and imagine, and the bed frame creates a creative space within a space where dreams are made. The colours used are striking and pleasant and the warmth of the light enhance the colours and soften the geometric lines of the bed frame and the carpet. My tips for decorating a children’s bedroom would be to remember that fairy lights are not just for Christmas – use them in a child’s room to create a dreamy atmosphere and to not be afraid to mix vintage and contemporary styles.

Even if your bedroom is small, it’s still possible to create an interesting space. This is why I love this image, as the headboard on the bed is unique and fun, and creates a real focal point. It’s a DIY project that simply needs some panels of wood and a jigsaw to cut the shape. I love how they’ve added washi tape and some images to it – meaning you can add personality, and can easily change these as the mood takes you. They’ve tied the look together subtly with the neon pink touches, but keeping the rest of the colour palette simple. Image credit
If you’re lucky enough to have a spare bedroom or un-tapped attic space, turn it into a playroom. Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada – French and Mexican respectively – have done this in their Brussels family home, which they share with their two sons, Antoine and Olivier. The couple design modern furniture and accessories that are made using traditional techniques by craftsman in Mexico for sale through their design company Casamidy. We love how the couple isn’t afraid to use a magenta hue on the shelves in a space designed for boys.
The canopy in this girl’s bedroom, designed by Studio Alidad, was intended to make it feel more ‘feminine and special’. The bespoke floral design on the headboard and silk fringe is repeated on the fabric wallcovering, while the ceiling and corona are hand-painted.
The colour coral is back in vogue. According to Josephine Bennett, head of design at Laura Ashley, warm tones of sable with touches of coral give a subtle and slightly less feminine feel to this colour scheme. We like.
Here is a room with awesome colour scheme. The side table and the night lamps are very beautiful. The pink ottoman goes well with the paintings that are put up behind the ‘lotus lamp’. The room looks much organised and well-kept. These girls bedroom ideas can be a learning ground for teenage girls as to how well their niche can be carved.
This bedroom by Samantha Pynn is my dream bedroom! The soft colour palette with the simple design gives this room such a relaxing feel, while the blue floral ceramic stool and pillows add another dimension to the room, and keep it from feeling too soft. The sheer curtains let in lots of light, keeping the room lovely and bright.
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.
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.

A modern bedside table and monochromatic rug designed by Studio Ashby feature in the guest bedroom in a flat that has been transformed from a stark new-build to a characterful home. The pattern on the padded headboard is reflected in the artwork above the bed.
Gabby Deeming has created the atmosphere of a New England-style holiday home with painted wood furniture and faded stripes. The walls are in ‘Faded Damask’ by Mulberry Home, while the bespoke wooden headboard can be made to order by Fafio, and is painted (along with all the rest of the wood work) in ‘Sea Cliff’ eggshell from Sanderson. The bedding is from Romo, and the driftwood side table is Oka.
This bedroom manages to be both dramatic and elegantly muted. The scheme pairs the traditional – notably, the curtains – with modern elements, including glistening surfaces. A large painting by Ghada Amer hangs above the bed, while a comfortable headboard continues the cream palette.
This bedroom in the Tudor wing of Bradwell Lodge – the perfect neoclassical country house in miniature – is decorated with ‘Regent’ wallpaper and matching blinds from Bernard Thorp. The scheme may be sweet and soothing but the room is allegedly haunted.
The main bedroom in this Belgravia house is decorated with a sophisticated mix of geometric patterns, brass finishes and decorative bits and bobs. The focus is on the details in this room, including a geometric cushion by Jan Showers and a Ralph Lauren bedside lamp.
If you’re anything like us, you get your design inspiration from anywhere and everywhere – including hotels. Dormy House in the Cotswolds is a contemporary meets country chic weekend retreat attracting smart city dwellers. It also happens to be designed by Emily Todhunter from Todhunter Earle, a name regular readers will recognise. Todhunter Earle are behind many homes we’ve featured and Emily spoke recently at our reader event on hotel design. Inspiring, no?
i love all the design and they are wonderful.. but it must be someone for guys so they can make their rooms design…. plss let me know am teen boy.@ FAY and SANDRA. i want u to know that we are all here to look at it and comment but not to attack each other, each and everyone have his or her own choice, so u must be aware of that and no one should sound rude to anyone. thank you i hope u both will understand each other.
The owners of this newbuild Bahamas beach house turned to trusted interior designer John McCall to provide their house with a British sensibility, practical furnishings and interiors that are not ‘too beachy’. A white palette characterises most rooms in the house. Pastel blue is added in the main bedroom with bedding and a storage chest. Pineapple detailing at the top of each post on the four-poster bed subtly offers a Caribbean feel.
Hi Gianna! So glad you found inspiration in this post! This is a round up post, meaning we did not create the projects, but found them on the internet and put them all in one convenient place for our viewers!
Not sure if a neutral palette is attention-worthy? Think beyond the expected. Sophisticated florals on the walls, metallic accents, and an elegant light fixture are just enough to make this room sing.
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.
In this boys bedroom the floor has become a design feature. Blocks of wood were stained in a variety of colours before being laid in a parquet style. The result is rustic yet aesthetic, modern but not at all clinical. The union jack pillow on the bed is a witty reference to the owners’ time spent in the UK.
This compact children’s room is brightened up with soft pink walls, while the dark wooden beams add definition as well as providing natural shelving. White furniture is ideal for giving the impression of more space in a small scheme.
