Wow, interesting article. Maybe, this is of interest, I recently hired Furnishr to design my living room.

They designed, delivered, and setup my new living room furniture and decor in less than a week. Check them out if you’re interested, http://www.furnishr.com/

Tucked away in a small backstreet in Knightsbridge is the home of Tessa Kennedy, a legendary name in the world of interior design, whose work adorns Claridges and the Ritz, and whose clients include George Harrison, Elizabeth Taylor and Prince Jefri of Brunei – for whose apartment she designed a revolving drawing room. Her house is eclectic, opulent and leavened with a healthy dose of kitsch, including this spectacularly theatrical spare bedroom. The walls are painted in pale violet to match the toile on the four-poster bed, bought on the aux Puces in Paris.
Writer, photographer and ironmonger Alastair Hendy has two very different homes – one aGrade II listed sixteenth century property that was a five-year restoration project. The other is this sleek minimalist loft in London. This bedroom shows how to create a clever en-suite out of a large space, while retaining privacy for the bathing area with a striking wooden screen.
The right girl’s room decor grows with your child and calls for creativity and clever planning. Keep life simple by leaving your girl’s bedroom colors and furniture bright and white. The neutral backdrop will blend effortlessly with any number of solids and patterns on bedding and other decor. Plus, the natural light bounces off the walls brightening the room even more. As a bonus, clean white walls keep this attic bedroom from looking cramped and tiny.
Crete a truly multi-purpose room that will keep the kids entertained for hours. Our favourite part? The bright yellow painted floor and matching lampshades – because a room like this should be colourful and fun.
Children’s bedrooms should be fun, bold and playful. As a designer, I love to let my imagination run wild when working with children’s bedrooms. With a little inventiveness you can create the most wonderful spaces with unusual paint effects and bespoke joinery. Use MDF to create a built in bed in the shape of a house or teepee, section off a corner for a reading area in the shape of a castle or make the most of a tall ceiling with a mezzanine, as in the image above. Children love to have their own special space and creating a reading nook or hiding space allows them to escape into their own magical world. In the past I have designed rooms with tented ceilings, trampoline floors and a bed made from silver birch branches decorated with fairy lights. Go on – have some fun! Image Credit

The first-floor bedroom of architect Jonathan Tuckey’s seventeenth-century chalet holiday home in the Swiss Alps is ideal for children to share (Jonathan has two daughters), thanks to a pair of fifties rosewood beds from Modernistiks.
There is no reason at all that a small bedroom – even a really tiny bedroom – can’t be every bit as gorgeous, relaxing, and just plain full of personality as a much larger space. (As proof, check out the elegant bedroom from Laura Stein Interiors shown here.) The trick to creating a lovely bedroom when square footage is limited is to make smart use of the space you do have, keep furnishings scaled to the room, and most of all, not be afraid to show off your decorating chops.
Designer Paolo Moschino commissioned painter Dawn Reader to create the stripes on the walls here.
