If floor space is limited but you have higher ceilings, consider adding a loft or platform for your sleeping area with storage or seating underneath. This isn’t an option for everyone, but for those who don’t mind literally climbing into bed, this layout can completely transform a space.
Before settling on any small bedroom ideas, it’s vital to get out the measuring tape beforehand and work out what size of bed you can comfortably accommodate, while leaving yourself enough floor space to walk around in. Magnolia colours, pale furnishings, mirrors and framed photographs of landscapes can help create the optical illusion that the room is bigger and more spacious. Look for multi-purpose pieces of furniture that hide away clutter in a neat and inventive manner—these can add a flavour of fun and sharp, cutting-edge design to a small room.
Sometimes, just one small detail which can bring a room together. In this case, the studs surrounding the bed’s cream headboard draws the eye, making the furniture the focal point of the room in the absence of any wall art. A perfect alternative for walls (or homes) where you can’t hang pictures.
In this country house in Norfolk with interiors designed by Veere Grenney, the Tudor wing is a glorious honeycomb of rooms for the youngest members of the family, where there are enough small beds for the most riotous of sleepovers. Four-poster beds, working fireplaces and generous armchairs make them gloriously comfortable, but the light colour palette, the brightly coloured modern rugs and the carefully chosen pictures and objects dispel any notion of stuffiness. Yellow is a great colour choice for childrens rooms: it’s bright, playful and most importantly gender neutral.
If there are two failsafe options for decorating a kid’s room, it’s bright colour and fun furnishings. For the former, Farrow & Ball’s modern emulsion is a hardwearing, eco-friendly option which is safe for walls and toys. For the latter, a (firmly-secured) hanging chair is the height – pardon the pun – of childhood chic. This one is the ‘Marrakech Swing’ chair, £200 at Urban Outfitters.

Owner Lavinia needs no introduction to regular readers of House & Garden, as she has been one of its legendary house finders since 1986.
