Passing down through inheritance for nearly 400 years, Holker Hall has a rich history resulting in an interior that combines comfort with charm. In one of the guest rooms, a classic Colefax and Fowler fabric is used on the day bed, footboard and canopy.
I’m a huge fan of simple and functional Scandinavian style with a monochrome and neutral colour palette. This bedroom is quite minimalist, but at the same time has everything you need to relax. I prefer all white bedding (linen bedding is my favourite!) which is in this bedroom combined with some black pillowcases to add contrast against the white wall. I love to bring some warmth into the monochrome interior by adding natural materials (like wood) and also green plants – both of which have been used in this bedroom. Image credit
This beautiful soft industrial bedroom featured on the cover of the launch issue of Warehouse Home – and it’s been proving very popular! The original features of a warehouse conversion, such as exposed brickwork, can often feel ‘hard’ and ‘masculine’. Old and new steel furniture is especially striking in such spaces but can also feel cold. When styling the Warehouse Home bedroom (above), we wanted to prove that industrial chic can have a soft side. A bespoke galvanised steel pipe bed, designed exclusively for Warehouse Home by Inspirit Deco, was the focal point of our warehouse bedroom. And beside it, a vintage industrial bedside cabinet. We then used ‘masculine and feminine’ palette of greys and blush pinks and a variety of textured fabrics (linen, tweed, velvet), to bring warmth to our bedroom and soften the industrial look. Select vintage accessories complemented the warehouse conversion’s heritage features, while flowers and decorative vintage glassware further enhanced the “femininity” of the space. Image credit
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.
This children’s bedroom is in an airy attic space. The gable wall has been papered in Sandberg’s delicate ‘Mika’ wallpaper, highlighting the architectural shape of the apex. The wooden floorboards have been painted in a practical, wipe-clean gloss paint. A calico teepee is a fun den – for something similar try Hobbycraft.
There are few places where a teen can express themselves unabashedly. The bedroom is the top choice. The beauty of being a teenager is that the world is their oyster. Their favorite things are diverse and sometimes discordant, but with some planning, all ideas can tie together beautifully.

We’re not suggesting you take your bedroom outdoors (our climate’s not quite reliable enough!) but we do suggest you take inspiration from this colour scheme of mustard yellow and ecru, the stylish bed and linen featuring pastoral scenes and the accessories: wicker baskets used as a bedside table and battered vintage suitcases for further storage.
This bed in the bedroom of gilder Clare Mosley and husband Mark Bicknell was bought in Paris. Its journey hasn’t been smooth. During the eight months it took to make the house reasonably habitable, Clare and Mark camped in one room and the builders worked around them. However, even this safeguard did not protect them from a few of the traditional building disasters. Having gone away for two days, they returned to find that the bed had been cut up and thrown out of the window and into a waiting skip below. Thankfully, it was saved. It is now resplendent with matching quilt, half-tester and cushions in ‘Mikado L2804’ by Le Manach.
This scheme was put together by House & Garden’s Ruth Sleightholme. The Modern Scandinavian bedroom is complemented with this walnut bed, ‘Companions’, by Ilse Crawford for De La Espada, 110 x 215 x 200cm, £4,386, at The Conran Shop.
Blue and white striped walls make this room feel bigger, a clever effect that is strengthened by the matching headboard. The subtle nautical style with industrial touches seems particularly fitting for a bedroom in this Victorian water tower conversion.
While it’s wonderful to go buck wild with the decoration of a child’s room, sometimes a subtle approach, like that taken in this charming nursery by Emma Burns of Colefax & Fowler, can save time and money – especially if the baby is likely to graduate to a bigger room later on.
