The addition of a large basement extension to this Edwardian house with bright, modern interiors freed up space on the upper floors for bright and capacious rooms, and created a more fluid layout ideal for family living.
This child’s room showcases youthful sophistication for growing girls. Offset the bedroom, the lavender playroom provides plenty of space for playing games and entertaining friends. The lime linen settee is the perfect place to read a book while enjoying the sweeping outdoor views. By creating a clear separation between the bedroom and playroom, both rooms have a clear and defined purpose. Design by Jennifer Duneier
Interior designer Marion Lichtig designed the headboards in the spare room to echo the nineteenth-century Dutch, harlequin-painted armoire. The pretty floral quilts were found in France, but the floral ranges from Ikea (such as Emmie Blom) are a good match.
I would describe this bedroom as ‘cosy contemporary’ and it’s the sort of space I could relax in at the end of a busy day. It is fairly minimalist, but not as stark as a white or grey bedroom, with an on trend geo pattern and a soft colour palette, with some warmth from the brass lamp and wooden side table. I also love the white painted floor boards and think it is a look that could be quite easy to re-create. Image credit
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.

The son’s bedroom in a Chelsea flat designed by Sophie Ashby has a cloud mural by Surface View – a copy of Constable’s Study of Cirrus Clouds. Velvet cushions and a spray-lacquered Danish desk from Ebay add to the blue theme, while the Zak + Fox fabric on the headboard provides a strong contrast. Animal motifs and a small workspace make this a perfect kid’s bedroom.
A colorful polka-dot theme gets a sophisticated update with splashes of neutral brown. The cheery spots pop up on the bedding and walls (create a similar look with wall decals). Add in a few chocolate-brown elements, such as throw pillows, and the room takes on a more mature look, perfect for girls growing into adolescence.

A spare bedroom with wooden furniture and a window seat in the terrace house of Lady Wakefield. The beautiful Georgian window – found in a junk shop on the King’s Road – was added in 1998 by the owners.
We wouldn’t necessarily have considered a bold green for a bedroom but when used on a feature wall in an otherwise neutral room and combined with some pretty floral bedding, it’s fresh and spring-like. We love it.
We love that there are so many things that catch the eye in this room, from pirate ships and bunting to hot air ballons, fun prints, a stuffed octopus and paisley cushions. It’s just what’s needed to spark a child’s imagination.
