You are all totally missing the point of this. These are ideas for you, not things that you HAVE to do.So maybe you like the first or the second or the 24th. Maybe you don’t have the space or the money. What you could do is look for things in your room that are similar to the things in the picture. Secondly the reason the walls in some are bare are for a reason. The space on the wall if for you to hang your posters or pictures or just random stuff you like. Also if you notice how in some pictures the desk, bed, and entertainment area are like one huge piece. Perfect for small rooms. I am 13 and I am getting my room redone for my birthday and also looking for designs for my While I like some of these none are any I feel express myself so I won’t be choosing any designs similar to those in the pictures.
In this Paris flat, London-based designer Tara Craig has used a strong, simple palette with devastating effect. The walls of the spare bedroom are painted in ‘Papaver’ by Adam Bray for Papers and Paints, with an imposing ‘Carlyle’ headboard from Ensemblier London upholstered in ‘Serpetti’ linen by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Amazing collection Emily! Among all, the design of Alina Isaev is the one that captured my attention the most. Perfect combination of simplicity and elegance, this is what I want my dream room to look like.
Tasked with reinventing a conservative Park Avenue apartment, New York-based designer Sandra Nunnerley has created a modern, relaxed space that has an aura of calm. In the main bedroom, the headboard is in Holland & Sherry ‘Spectator’ fabric, with Mike and Doug Starn’s ‘Structure of Thought’ print hung above it; the doorway to the left leads seemlessly through to a dressing room to leave the main room uncluttered. Sandra describes the result as ‘timeless luxury and refinement’, without sacrificing a sense of modernity.
This lovely – but tiny – home was once a library. Now it’s a testament to good use of small space, thanks to the designers at The Works. Notice the built-in cabinets and the recessed, upholstered “headboard” nook. Beautiful and genius.
Try incorporating bright florals into a girl’s bedroom scheme. Here, a combination of mismatching pinks and reds featuring in wallpaper, curtains and soft furnishings create a cohesive but informal look.
Sometimes, words of encouragement are exactly what you need to start the day smiling. Hang our wall art lettering up and remind yourself to stay happy as you shine through your day. Bling it up with flashy glitter letters in sayings like peace, or take it down a notch and just hang your name on the back of your bedroom door. Some options, like our heart-shaped cabinet, provide functionality too.
On the Caribbean island of Mustique, interior designer Veere Grenney has redesigned a bamboo house that is a study in neutrals and natural materials. The main bedroom, in a pavilion, has a bed from Soane. Green fabrics complete the room’s natural design while adding another colour to the simple scheme.
The children’s bedroom at the Playa Grande Beach Club is furnished with twin canopy beds dressed in a playful mix of pretty, sophisticated fabrics. The bed canopies are an easy bit of decorative DIY to recreate at home – simply wire a length of fabric to the ceiling of the room. Vintage leather trunks at the foot of the bed are the perfect place for chucking toys at the end of the day.
I love so much about this baby/toddler room interior. The bunting across the blind really sets a tone for the room and I love the lights hanging off of the ladder, they add a touch of warmth and cosiness to the room – which is exactly how every baby or child’s room should feel. I love that the floors and walls are bright. There’s a blue, white and grey theme which is fantastic because it suits a young baby as well as being grown up enough for a toddler. We’re re-doing our boys’ rooms this year and this image among others is where we’re taking inspiration from. I plan to use a light laminate floor like here and opt for light walls too, contrasting it by using colourful accessories. I think that when it comes to children’s interiors it’s fine to want to go modern, but it’s important to make sure that the room both reflects your child’s personality and is fun and young at the same time.

Silver, gold and bronze touches in the bedroom of one of Sarah Stewart-Smith’s daughters at their family home in Herefordshire. Wooden floors enhance the country-house feel and a cosy bedthrow adds warmth. Beams were exposed after Sarah discovered them behind plaster boarding in the charming 1786 cottage she now calls home.
Behind the bed in this circus inspired room by William Yeoward, an Eighteenth-century hand-painted screen from Hollyhock sweetly compliments the bespoke tented cupboard from Clock House Furniture. The William Yeoward grey fruitwood, ‘Aberfoyle’, chest of drawers, ‘Bellingham’ bench, and grey mahogany bed are available at Designers Guild.

i’m 13 and really dont like any of them some are really childish because teens want there bedrooms to look older by the way i’m not being rude its just what i think and the rest are just horrid yuck ew
I love how Martyn Lawrence Bullard combines vibrant colours with serenity and calm in this bedroom; a perfect setting for colour lovers, who want to wind down in a relaxed setting after a hard day’s work. The different textures, such as the fur throw and carpet provide a great contrast to the mirrored bedside tables, which makes the room dynamic and interesting. I also love the ethnic element (Ikat cushions) combined with the ‘Modern Glamour’ style, which gives the room a new dimension. And how great is the coffee table at the end of the bed? I don’t like bedside tables, that are full of books and magazines, so this provides a great stage option that prevents cluttering the room and at the same time looks great! Image credit
I have seen lots of pretty string light ideas for the bedroom lately, but most of them do not actually show you have to get to cool DIY lighting effect shown in the photo.

When done right, black wall paint can make a chic statement in your sleep space. The trick? Paint one wall black and leave the others a bright white, then fill your room with colorful decor in fun patterns and textures.
Interior designer Ursula of Room to Bloom recommends creating a workspace with a fold-down desk, as it gives more floor space for play and sleepovers. To further enhance the illusion of space and make the most of the room’s limited light, Ursula opted for a white, Scandinavian-inspired colour scheme, which was in keeping with the rest of the house.
A bank of windows frames a pretty picket-fence bed. Surrounded by colorful curtains, the bed is the room’s focal point. Sunlight streams in to illuminate the space, but heavy curtains can be drawn to block out the light for nap time. Although a double bed might look oversized now, it will accommodate a growing child in later years, making it a strategic long-term investment.
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.
Measuring just 90 square metres, this home to a family of five in Chelsea, London, makes use of every inch of space. Designed by Eve Mercier, the small kids’ bedroom features two broad, wall-mounted benches (underneath the loft bed) that are easily transformed into beds (bedlinen is concealed below), while a third, drawer bed slides out when needed. ‘We wanted a versatile space that could easily be converted into a study if necessary,’ explains Eve. A circular, frosted window overlooks the bathroom.
Sisters sharing a room can be a recipe for squabbling. To keep the peace, go in with a game plan. If the girls are old enough to help with decor decisions, ask for their input. That way they’ll feel like they have a vested interest in the room. Also, designate an area for each girl’s stuff so both will feel like they have their own space. Another tip: Plan for the future. When baby outgrows the crib, be prepared to shift around furniture or consider adding a bunk bed or a trundle bed.
For those who live in small spaces or are short on storage, this chic little wall-hanging from Ikea will keep all your bedside paraphernalia perfectly in place. Or, if you’re feeling particularly crafty you could make your own.
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.
A favorite poem becomes art in this little girl’s room. And you don’t have to be an artist to create your own word art. Look for stencils and wall decals at crafts stores and online. Make sure the color of the lettering contrasts with the wall color to ensure your message will read loud and clear.
The design of this room is in keeping with the rest of the house, in which all rooms are furnished with Scandinavian and mid-century pieces. Heidi and Steve were collecting these before they met. Pieces sourced from dealers and furniture fairs – and even found in skips – include classic Knoll, Eames, Ercol and Hans Wegner furniture with some contemporary pieces by Hay and Donna Wilson thrown in for good measure. Artwork, including vintage Carry On posters, a Lucienne Day silk mosaic and work by Pink Floyd designer Storm Thorgerson, hangs on the walls.
The guest bedroom in Argentinian architect Mario Connio’s Andalucian farmhouse once housed a bread oven. Now it is painted a beautiful cornflower blue that enhances the relaxed Mediterranean feel of the room.
