No matter what piques your daughter’s interest, she probably needs plenty of storage for her treasures. Take a cue from the kitchen for organization. Kitchen cabinetry works well in girl’s bedroom designs. Here, semicustom cabinets act as a built-in around the bed, and drawers beneath the bed take advantage of untapped storage space.
This bedroom may be sparsely furnished but the chosen pieces – a luxe purple velvet headboard, an uber elegant side table and the beautifully printed ottoman, bed spread and cushions – have serious design impact. Then of course there is the stunning statement peacock feather wallpaper. Wow.
A teen will most appreciate an approach to their room as their mini, self-contained apartment where they can spend most of their time comfortably. Regardless of size, a teen’s bedroom needs to be versatile enough for them to spread out and get homework done, hang with friends, lounge and sleep, all while reflecting their personality.
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.
Inspired by masterpieces, our decoration team paired tactile and luxurious textures in deep velvets with bedlinen decorated with roses. A low-hanging, Oriental-style lamp illuminates the centre of the room, which, in the morning, is flooded with light from the huge window. The result is an astonishingly effective and achievable mix of opulence and simplicity.
The bedroom of decorator Emma Burns of Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler is quintessentially English in both its gentle antique style and its ‘make do and mend’ execution. ‘The bedhead is covered in an ancient patchwork made from my mother’s old dresses. I originally used it as a tablecloth,’ she says. ‘For me the bedroom is as important as the sitting room; it is a place of refuge that I use for resting and reading. I to fill it with books, pictures and armchairs. I’ve kept a feeling of softness by using a very subtle stippling effect on the walls, and some translucent blinds from Chelsea Textiles under the curtains, which allow a diffuse light into the room. My linen is from Volga Linen.’
Bold window panels boast a flower pattern that includes lots of bright pink in this girl’s room idea. The custom coverlet’s red embroidery has a refined look that can stay with the room’s pre-kindergarten resident until she reaches college age. A queen-size bed with a custom-designed headboard fills the large area between a closet and dresser on one wall and built-in bookcases and window seats across the room.
If your little girl has a knack for geography, consider girl’s bedroom wallpaper that has an educational flair. In this globetrotter’s room, a map of the world takes up the entire accent wall. Here, she can plan her next big adventure or be inspired to pick up a few library books on the eastern hemisphere. Plan the bedding and textiles around the colors found in the global designs.
Maximising light and space was essential to show the owner’s post-war art and sleek French art deco furniture to their best advantage in this elegant Pimlico flat. In the bedroom nineteenth-century photographs bought from Portobello Market hang above the bed, while built in bookshelves flank the windows.
As much as possible, Anne-Marie tried to match the wall colours to those that her grandmother had used, keeping the bedrooms the same subtle colours, while adding ‘ribbons’ of colour to outline the architecture and ‘dress the room’.
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.
Although professional framing comes with added expense, it’s an excellent way to help a youth-oriented space feel less juvenile and more grown-up. Instead of tacking the original paper directly to the wall, it was instead placed inside a floating-style frame with coordinating mat. When framing pieces for tween’s rooms, always consider durability and safety. Instead of gallery glass, this piece is protected with acrylic, which is kid-friendly and shatterproof.

Though it’s for two little girls, this room has plenty of grown-up sophistication. Crown molding, the fireplace mantel, and carved-wood bed frames are all highly traditional, but they are all finished in soft white rather than a dark stain. To create your own elegant room, stick with a palette of two colors, such as the sage and rose in this room.
For Richard Hanlon, the plan to buy a holiday home in India with his friend Trish McFarlane led to the ambitious construction of Bujera Fort, now a spectacular palace hotel in Udaipur. Arriving today, up the rutted track that leads out of Bujera village, it is difficult to believe that this beautiful building, its outer walls frothing with white bougainvillea, was only recently finished. A bedroom is decorated with traditional Indian furniture combined with English fabrics such as the floral chintz on the headboard.
im a teenager, and for me i personally like alot of these designs, there not all stereotypical. but it does seem like an old woman has made them and she doesnt really know what teenagers like. so maybe she should get some input from real teenagers
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.
As the pictures on the wall suggests, this has to be a lovely teenager’s space. The colour blue is instrumental in giving a soothing and calm impact to teenage excitements. The upholstered headboard with the mirrored night stand alongside gives a classy look to the room. The window treatment is another feather in the cap!
This bedroom in the South of France decorated by Samantha Todhunter includes all the best elements of a bedroom and sitting room combined. The armchairs are covered in ‘La Fiorentina’, from the David Hicks by Ashley Hicks collection for Groundworks at Lee Jofa. The pretty pale blue curtains are in ‘Ipeka Nuage’ linen from Lelievre.
Wonderful post! I love the ideas of personalizing the bedroom. The design was very creative and unique. I should try to be creative by customizing my stuffs in my bedroom without spending much money. Hoping for more great post!
Faringdon House in Oxfordshire was once home to ‘the mad boy’ Lord Berners, the inspiration for Lord Merlin in Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love. Now in the hands of his descendant Sofka Zinovieff, the character and eccentricity of the home and its history is lovingly preserved.
The main bedroom in designer Paul de Zwart’s Kensal Rise home cleverly combines decorative details with storage; a chest of drawers built into the alcove is made from the same material as the wall cladding. The two ‘Leggera’ chairs from Giò Ponti add colour.
I love the diversity in this post. You can find inspiration for everything – from cosy and snuggly bedrooms to dark and mysterious ones. Especially liked the one with the wall mural, feels like sleeping in the forest, out in the fresh and crisp air. I remember seeing a similar design but with rain clouds. I think natural wall murals bring peace and serenity to the bedroom.
