Floorboards of Baltic pine were laid throughout the first floor of Robin Muir’s house designed by Caroline Holdaway, including this spare bedroom. The room’s vibrant features include a black-and-white striped rug and The Rug Company’s Vivienne Westwood cushion. Similar tongue-and-groove panelling to that on the walls is available from The English Panelling Company.
Henry Bikerton, the director of antique and reproduction fireplace company Jamb, revived his traditional Victorian townhouse with carefully chosen elements of English country house style. He shares this bedroom with wife Sophie and his home with his two children. You’d never guess this room once so darky and dingey because the previous occupier had blacked out the windows with pizza boxes! Now the he windows are adorned with crewel curtains, originally made by the interior designer Hugh Henry and salvaged from a skip.
Typically when your daughter becomes a teenager she will no longer want to have her room filled with pictures of fairies, stuffed animals, or princess decorations. Instead she will begin looking for sophisticated teenage girl room ideas and designs so she can revamp her space with more mature décor. Whether it be new bedding, a fresh coat of paint, or even updated furniture, redecorating can become costly so you may want to look for cheap room ideas for teenagers. For example, painting old furniture yourself is a quick, inexpensive, and easy way to create a new and custom look. Paint the furniture a rustic pink color and then distress it to create an elegant and vintage look that is very popular among new 2017 bedroom design trends. Other fads for a tween bedroom include bright colors, geometric wall art, and modern furniture pieces. Storage space is an essential component of all teen girl room decoration so make sure to look for shelving units, trunks, and dressers. Search our online photo galleries for images of cool teenage girl bedrooms and creative storage ideas.
The Pink Room in Bradwell Lodge is fun, feminine and fancy. A bold Bernard Thorp fabric, ‘Brimble’, has been used on the walls and bed, and for the blind: this creates a lovely sense of continuity in the space.
This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions.
The age of your daughter will largely determine what type of décor or theme you should use in the room. With a newborn, you will want to find baby girl nursery room ideas, such as a farm animal or fairy theme, that will be appropriate for many years or that can easily be altered as your daughter grows and her tastes change. Circus design or farm animal themes are good baby room ideas for girls that your daughter will not quickly out grow. They are also both gender neutral themes that can be incorporated into a shared toddler room for girls and boys. For either of these designs, you can paint the walls of the room a neutral color such as pale yellow or blue and then purchase bedding, art, curtains, wall decals, and accessories that are consistent with the theme. Wall decals and pretty girls bedding sets with pink pigs, white ducks, yellow chicks and other barnyard animals are farm-themed accessories that are inexpensive and can be easily removed or altered when your daughter is older and wants to transfer her space into a teenage bedroom.

Just because your bedroom is small doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with the décor. Case in point: the bold striped walls in this otherwise quite traditional bedroom from blogger and designer Centsational Girl. It works beautifully thanks to the extremely limited neutral palette and lack of clutter or fussiness. If you like the general idea, but don’t want to go quite as bold, use two close tints of the same color to create your stripes.
Give a simple four-poster bed a sweet update with girly curtains and bedding. Pink fabrics keep the scheme girly, while the off-white walls mean that it can be updated as the child grows. Opt for a trundle bed for extra space when friends come to stay, and display their favourite toys proudly in a white-painted shelving unit.

A gorgeous pale pink and grey colour scheme and the sweetest textiles. We’ll also be stealing the idea of the bird foot prints, which run across the floor and bed, up the wall and out the window: perfect for sparking a child’s imagination.
A unique chest of drawers with a sketch of a columned building livens up the bedside in this London home designed by Freddy van Zevenbergen. Freddy says the owner ‘wanted it to feel a bit like Loulou’s,’ Robin Birley’s louche-luxe private members’ club in Mayfair, which Lambart & Browne designed in 2012.

The striking tile-effect wall and natural stone features do the talking in this bedroom, so all that’s needed is some crisp white linen and a discreet matching set of bedside tables and lamps. The effect is a slightly rustic but fresh-feeling space.
Sofa beds don’t have to be drab. Spruce up your spare room with some neon-piped bedding, and add a geometric rug and lime green accessories for a scheme that will be uber smart whether you have guests or not.
