I love everything about this bedroom. It’s simplicity and minimalistic approach is what’s really appealing. Those white wooden floorboards are just totally divine and make the room so bright and airy. I just love a room that has white walls and flooring because it is the perfect backdrop for adding colourful accessories. For me it also gives a sense of tranquillity. Let’s not forget to mention the hanging light bulb, such a beautiful and simple feature. What I am also lusting after is the clothes rail. Having your clothes out on show gives it a feminine touch to your room and feels very Carrie Bradshaw – just to need to make sure to be super tidy! Image credit
In this bedroom in Morocco, a large Twenties French poster hung above the low-level bed acts as an extension of the headboard. For similar vintage posters of this size, head to Rennies Seaside Modern in Kent, or visit its online shop.
This is a photo of my 8 year old son’s room, styled and photographed by myself. It’s a modern Breton themed bedroom. I styled this bedroom in the autumn to bring a fresh, bright and happy feel to the room. I made sure that a cosy feel is maintained, with the soft throw on the bed for bedtime tucking in and the cushion for casual lounging. Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends. Image credit
If you’re afraid of mixing pattern, start with stripes. A variety of sizes in the same colour adds interest, yet fits with the calm atmosphere of a bedroom. Designer Paolo Moschino chose a nautical colour scheme of blue and white for this fisherman’s cottage in Cornwall.
With stylish gray walls and mature furnishings, this little girl’s bedroom can keep her company for years to come. The contemporary white desk and nightstands are suitable for a young girl but can easily make the transition to pre-teen and older. Design by Nicole Sassaman
The bedhead in the main bedroom was designed by the home’s owner, interior designer Robert Moore. The fabric, ‘Palma Large’ from Bernard Thorp (£75 per metre) is also used on a chair in the bedroom (not pictured) and for the curtains in the bathroom.
Made famous by the Rothschild family, the hotels Les Fermes de Marie, L’Hotel Mont-Blanc and The Lodge Park – were built by a local family in Haute-Savoie. Jean Louis Sibuet converted the bones of each hotel, and his business partner, Jocelyne, did the interior design. ‘We started with an oppurtunity in a particular place and time, says Jocelyne, ‘when we find somewhere we find it hard to walk away’. The Sibuet’s latest Provencal hotel is Domaine de la Baume, where each room has its own eclectic style including this bedroom that imbues character with yellow Pierre Frey wallpaper.
Wonderful ideas, and great tips. Beautiful decors. Wonder if you could share more ideas for tables for studying. I don’t like big tables I just would like to have a space where they can do their homework but don’t take up too much space. Thank you.

For the girl who is always experimenting with a new look, offer her a solid-color bedspread with the option of interchangeable throw pillows. Start off with a few, then let your girl add and subtract as you both find new pillows to mix in. Search out clearance racks and discount stores for affordable pillows to switch up the look.
Inspired by the Matisse exhibition at the Tate Modern, House & Garden’s decoration editor Gabby Deeming created bespoke wall coverings that pay homage to the joie de vivre of the artist’s paper-cuts with the help of the design team at de Gournay. Matisse himself hung many of the works on the walls of his own Paris apartment. Positioning each leaf individually allows you to create a wall design that complements your furniture.

Take a decorating tip from Lisa Teague Studios, and create interest in your small room by placing your bed at a slight diagonal. It’s even better when a pretty folding screen takes the place of a traditional headboard; the screen acts as a focal point for the room, drawing the eye upwards to increase the visual size of the space. Another use for a folding screen in the bedroom is as a privacy barrier around the bed. This is especially good in a studio apartment, or in a shared children’s…MORE bedroom.
well I was looking for ideas for a small room and how everything will fit into it, and I stumble on this website. I can now breathe a breath of fresh air cause I found several that I love. And the colour skim are amazing. Thanks much! Well appreciated.
I love every ideas you have shared over here. The style and design were so perfect and very inspiring. I am so happy I stumbled on your blog because you inspire me a lot. I can apply ideas I learned on my next home decorating ideas project. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post.
Guys, in case you aren’t aware there are materials to paint a room that are not expensive..especially if you do it yourself. Also you can design a room based on someone else’s design. Your room doesn’t have to look EXACTLY like the designer’s. And, of course, you have to adjust a design to the size and shape of your room. Just putting that out there because there’s a very small chance that you will find a design that if made FOR you and your room..
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 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.
In this converted Cotswolds barn, interior designer Pippa Paton has combined modern design with natural materials to create a minimalist haven that maintains its rural identity. This bedroom, which is flooded with light at the top of the barn, is subtly decorated with children in mind. Plain white walls are accented with brightly coloured accessories and soft, comfortable low seating.
My belief is that a bedroom should be clean and simple. We spend so much time in our bedrooms trying to unwind from the day. That’s why we should create a serene space for ourselves. This bedroom is both serene and cool. The black and white palette proves that you don’t have to have a lot of colour to stand out. Image credit
I’m 13 and I like to say that these layouts, ideas for bedrooms are great. Considering the fact that i have a big bedroom. I do agree with you Olivia 12 is the best, I love that they are not afraid of putting a little spot up there to chill or even to just sit there and enjoy time. It may be hard to believe that I have a room that big but it is very true.
This traditionally designed bedroom features an antique four-poster bed with red bedding and matching curtains. The scheme also includes dark antique furniture, including an elegant console table used as a bedside table.
Creating a cosy play area in the corner of the room is easy. All that’s needed is a heavy pile rug and plenty of cushions – we love the mix of neutrals and brights here. The modular shelving and lighting further delineate the area from the rest of the room.
If you choose to decorate your bedroom with one hue, be sure to vary the shades to create a calming vibe. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns (florals and stripes live well together) to add visual interest.
