Ensure it’s spring all year around with a fresh, zesty green colour scheme. Don’t be fearful of combining patterns and prints in the same colour but this is best applied in smaller touches – one feature wall, one piece of furniture and textiles added to a neutral base.
Kelly Hoppen’s London house shows off her trademark slick, neutral style. The main bedroom, which has an internal window looking down onto the open-plan ground floor, features a neutral colour scheme of white and taupe. ‘You probably haven’t even noticed the other major thing I’ve done here,’ says Kelly. And it’s at this point that I come to appreciate not only Kelly’s dedication to detail, but also her refusal to take herself too seriously. ‘I’ve mixed sand with taupe,’ she says with mock triumph.
I wanted this nursery to be a tranquil yet timeless space. The combination of subtle greys, soft pinks and white furniture is timeless and effortlessly stylish and ensures longevity. Taking inspiration from the vintage wallpaper tree art, I have accented this with brighter pinks and lime greens to punctuate the scheme and add freshness. The cotton curtains, have a playful embroidered band across the bottom featuring cats and birds, adding interest and fun to the scheme and contrasting well with the brighter pink linen blind. There is a useful mix of both open and closed storage. Contemporary pieces (such as the bunny nightlight and the grey acrylic storage stool) are mixed with vintage finds (including the wallpaper used for the tree and the antique children’s books) to create a unique room and one that complements the rest of the home. A sweet sanctuary.
This bedroom is an ode to antiquity with touches of the Neoclassical, Empire Style and Classical-inspired littered throughout the space, most of which was designed and made by Alexander himself – the headboard with colours of an Attic vase, for example. Follow Breeze’s lead, pick up a pot of paint and get experimenting with patterns and motifs from your favourite era!
Don’t be fearful of brights in the bedroom, they can look fantastic, but we suggest keeping strong hues to a feature wall behind the bed and choosing a softer, more calming colour for the rest of the room.

The bedroom of this London townhouse is the work of Amanda Baring, who designed it for her sister, the owner. The neutral hues keep it calm and warm, while a collection of black and white etchings decorate the walls.
‘To make this room feel more relaxed, we decided to take the symmetry out of the space,’ says Tom Bartlett of Waldo Works, of his designs for London’s new Laslett Hotel. ‘It can be nice to break the rules. Things don’t always have to match: the lamp by Davide Groppi at TwentyTwentyone on the left above the fitted cabinet is different to the ‘Otis’ lamp Nocturne Workshop on the table by Pinch, but they are in the same materials and colours, so they work together. The same approach was used to hang the art, which I always try out first on the floor in front of the wall. One piece was hung and the rest were allowed to extend from it in different shapes up and across the wall. To do this well, you need a variety of frames and a good breadth of types of artwork,’ he says. Other items in the room include grey and blue patterned cushions by Eleanor Pritchard, orange cushion by Urbanara and a blanket by Tweedmill.
I have a thing for fairytales and so I always seek for that ‘happily ever after’ look in my home. With its tactile textures, warming beige tones and flowing covers, this bedroom is the epitome of a bed that’s fit for a princess and her prince – or me and my fiancé. It’s clear that the main focus of the room is the bed itself and so, as I believe that you can never have enough scatter cushions either, this scene truly is my ideal bedroom.
Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of… So a cacophony of florals, butterflies and birds really works. Particularly when more traditional prints, like the wallpaper here, are combined with more modern ones.
A hanging statement light, like a chandelier, can really pull together a bedroom and give the eye a focal point. The crystal accents in this chandelier add an interesting element of light and texture when contrasted with the wood flooring and bed frame.
Two Designer’s Guild beds upholstered in ‘Brera’ linen furnish this small bedroom in the attic a Somerset country house. The calm turquoise and white scheme offers some colour to the room without making the small space feel too busy.

If you thought a small master bedroom couldn’t be every inch the equal in elegance to those huge rooms you see on Pinterest or in glossy interior decorating magazines, one look at Steven Ford Interior’s gorgeous navy blue, cream, and gray bedroom will change your mind. Stunning.
In this children’s bedroom in Paris – its elegance quite unlike any other child’s bedroom – the walls are adorned with painted medallions hanging on beaded strings. Each medallion contains a motif, a religious icon or mythical creature, which ‘watch over’ the children as they sleep. The medallions are by Jorge Estevez – who claims he is a decorator, and not an artist.
I don’t know about you, but I find that having non-themed rooms in my home is essential to the ever-changing needs of family life. What’s more, themed rooms spells hotel. And do we want to live in a soulless hotel? Thought not. Ask yourself, as children grow out of their beds, share with a sibling or move rooms, could their ‘old’ room be adapted as a snug, study or dining room? The littlies’ needs change so much and so quickly in those first few years, it really makes sense to go for a scheme that is multi-purpose but, most importantly, timeless. Turn convention on its head and experiment. This Farrow & Ball wide stripe is supposed to be hung vertically but I couldn’t resist flipping it ninety degrees. For furniture, see what you can find in flea markets and slap a coat of paint over it, or rummage around in local auction houses. Brown furniture is still well-priced and besides, it is so much more fun for a child to be grabbing their clothes out of an old chest of drawers that has a story to tell, than an identikit piece, hot off the production lines from China. Although they will only appreciate it (there’s always hope) when they move out, taking their ‘old friend’ with them. The overall effect is much more personal and full of character, which is what makes a home your home.
I stayed at the Ludlow Hotel in New York’s Lower East Side last October and I instantly fell in love with my room. The stark black four-poster bed was the perfect contrast to whitewashed walls and beams. The industrial black window frames were dressed with heavy patterned pleated silk shades. The massive brass pendant lamp, patterned flat-weave rug, sheepskin throws and deeply veined marble coffee tables accented the decor perfectly. And the view of downtown Manhattan was of course unbeatable. Image credit
Even the tiniest bedroom can benefit from an accent wall; after all, it doesn’t take up any space. Whether you choose a glorious metallic wallpaper like the one here or prefer a painted wall, don’t be afraid to go bold if that suits your personality.
