With a Damien Hirst artwork and a vintage chandelier, this little girl’s room in Bayswater designed by Fiona Parke of Johnston Parke Interiors is certainly at the fancier end of the spectrum. The bed is upholstered in Abbott & Boyd linen and has two drawers for storing toys.
‘The key with toys is to design somewhere for them to go,’ says interior designer Bunny Turner of Turner Pocock. The green ottoman at the foot of the bed in this room doubles as fancy dress storage and a vault for gymnastics.
This is my ideal bedroom style, I love the use of soft and subtle tones with small injections of colour such as the yellow used in bedside accessory bowl and the brass used on those gorgeous twin wall lamps. Whilst the room is light, with a large window, the space is warm and welcoming with the help of a plush throw, soft sheets and a complementing headboard to the bed. Image credit
This is a cute and colourful girl’s room with a nice and comfortable bunk bed. The floral wall paper is beautiful charging the room with positivity. The heart-shaped mirror and the lamp on the side table looks wonderful.
This bedroom in Ugbrooke Park was used by the Cardinal Weld (father of the wife of the 7th Lord Clifford) when he visited the house, thus his portrait and travelling trunk remain in the room. The walls of the Cardinal’s Room are covered in ‘Meredith’ in red by Nina Campbell for Osborne & Little, which is also used on the canopy and headboard.
This room has a beautiful vintage/industrial style. A bedroom to me is a place to rest and to surround myself with calmness. This needs to be reflected in the decor. Nothing should draw too much attention. It needs to be laid back, full of natural materials, casual and cosy.

The blind and headboard have been made in a matching fabric a cost-effective trick for adding a punch of pattern to a bedroom. The blind is prettily trimmed in Samuel & Sons pom-poms. A window sill has been turned in to a reading nook with a padded cushion.
Soft coral and brown? It may be out of imagination, but it turns out so beautiful and girly. Love the patterned wall art above the bed, the black and white lampshade, the “DREAM” decorative letters on the side storage dresser…Who doesn’t want a bedroom like this as a teenage girl? via House of Rose Blog.
The neat attic bedroom of designer Hugh Leslie’s Chelsea studio is partially clad in horizontal tongue-and-groove boarding. This is a good trick to visually widen a small room. Try the Georgian range from The English Panelling Company, which would create a similar effect.
