The furniture was found at Swoon Editions, including the low, mid-century modern rosewood media unit and bedside table. The bedding was bought from Anthropologie and the lighting from Urban Cottage Industries.
We’re having a bit of a love affair with yellow at the moment, but this has to be one of our favourite applications of the sunny hue: bright yellow shutters combined with a black and white scheme and a few yellow accessories to accent. Amazing.
Are Ariel, Cinderella and Belle your daughter’s best friends? Does she love every Disney princess and dream of arriving at a ball in a pumpkin carriage of her own? She’s not alone — the many princesses of Disney have been loved through several generations of girls. What better way to decorate her room than with a full-wall mural of her favorite animated characters? You can hire a muralist to create a one-of-a-kind design, or buy a wallpaper mural that is easy to apply on your own.
Will Fisher and his wife Charlotte of Jamb have completely refashioned their eighteenth-century house in south east London, relaying the wooden antique floors, reproducing the cornicing and installing period chimneypieces and stonework. The couple have done a great deal to bring that much sought-after – but rarely achieved – country-house look to the mainstream aesthetic.

With the distressed wood of the floor and walls, this room needs little else to give it character and warmth. Netural tones, natural textures and a touch of colour from a pretty patterned bed spread are a subtle but welcome addition.
Interior designer Robert Moore is a self-confessed magpie, and his home is bursting with beautiful things: books, photographs and silvery trinkets adorn every surface. The main bedroom is painted in ‘Tablecloth’ by Paint & Paper Library while the mirror was bought in Arundel. Nicholas Haslam will make the pretty gabled headboard to order, but Sofa.com’s ‘Inferno’ bed upholstered in cotton (starting from £695 for a double) is a good alternative.
The globetrotting owners of this west London townhouse employed a specialised team to restore its original mid-nineteenth century features, and create a home with a feeling of permanence after a lifetime of moving. The house is a tall, white stucco building that they wanted to work well for twenty-first-century family life. ‘We were determined to avoid beige banker chic, the owners explain.
While adults prefer a space that’s calm and understated, teens appreciate vibrantly colored, high energy rooms. The wall is the biggest area you can work with in a bedroom. Some of the best teen bedroom ideas involve the walls. Here are our favorite:
Teenage girls’ bedroom decor should be different from a little girl’s bedroom. Designs for teenage girls’ bedrooms should reflect her maturing tastes and style with a youthful yet more sophisticated look and need to be very stylish, modern, fashionable an
How about a minimalist bedroom that will wish you sweet dreams? A bedroom that pleases your senses after a long and busy day. A space that is a balm for the soul of its residents, which creates a sense of sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A Zen space with a subtle extravagant touch in the form of a marble wall which acts as a blank canvas for other features. A focal point in a form of a cosy bed upholstered with a nice, fabric enriched with two asymmetric lamps giving the space an usual and interesting look. There is a large walk-in wardrobe, to the right of the bed, allowing residents to keep the space nice and tidy – perhaps apart from a couple of great books laying around here and there. But who wouldn’t love to lay down on this bed with a good read? Image credit

Relocating to Oxford after 15 years in Japan and Hong Kong, the owners of this Victorian house put together a team of experts to create a mostly open-plan layout, full of intriguing design details. The spare children’s room on the third floor has specially made built-in bunks.
An upholstered screen is a useful device when working with pattern as it can be moved to fill empty spaces (or hide areas such as a desk in a multi-purpose bedroom) and is relatively simple to recover when you tire of the design.
A sense of timelessness combined with simplicity and sophistication characterises Arnaud Zannier’s collection of hotels, as well as his shoe business. It is a design ethos reflected in his family home near Ghent. Refined and relaxed, the home echews trneds and adopts classic style instead. Exposed wooden beams, full of knots and character, envelop the room and the bed, giving it a cosy cabin feel.

The main bedroom in the Florescu’s modern Chelsea home follows a fresh decoration scheme – mainly white with touches of rich turquoise and sunny yellow. Through the door is a glimpse into Lizzie’s study – a studious sanctury with fitted bookshelves and a cosy armchair.
Older girls will love a rustic, French-inspired scheme. Try framing a collection of pretty textiles to hang on the wall, repeating the theme in bedlinen and cushions. A painted console can double up as a desk and a dressing table.

The master bedroom of a converted disused chapel in Somerset owned by artist Jonathan Delafield Cook and illustrator Laura Stoddart is decorated in a neutral colour palette of creams and whites with blue accents provided by the bedding and cushions.
wow, thanks for this post. I like the one with the stairs. It’s almost the same picture I have in mind years ago but never given a chance to have it in real picture. Anyway, happy to drop by and see your posts.
This traditional guest bedroom at Wardington Manor in Oxfordshire features a classic four-poster bed and a small sofa with a box-pleated skirt. Character is added to the neutral floor and walls with soft furnishings such as a wall tapestry, rug and fabric bed canopy. The arrangements of cut flowers such as the one featured in this room are displayed throughout the house and sold as part of garden designers The Land Gardeners’ new business venture, which uses the manor as HQ.
My favourite bedroom has got to be my own. First of all, our ‘Breaking Bad’ style crocheted throw. Doug and I got completely addicted to this piece of TV genius and are convinced it is going to seriously influence Interior Trends for the next decade – the architecture in Albuquerque is so nice: slightly Mexican with a modern ‘edge’. The artwork above the bed is by my husband, Douglas. His work is our pension. The 1980’s style TV in the corner is a reassuring presence, as is the retro gas fire – all perfect for our unique, one off 1970’s house. The wire shelving racks are the perfect place to put books, phones and our industrial style inspection lamps. Image credit
