A stunning four-poster bed will make your child feel very grown-up, modern and sophisticated, while a combination of orange, raspberry and red is a modern alternative to traditional pink. White furniture helps to keep the look uncluttered. Try Argos for a similar bed.
Vincent Frey is the grandson of the eponymous Pierre Frey founder (and the current deputy manager of the French fabric and furnishing company). Vincent and his wife Bianca hired architect Marika Dru, an old school friend of Vincent’s, to work on their Parisian flat, although decided to decorate it – including son Vasco’s room – themselves. We love the mix of a grand painting with a quirky hanging basket.
Henri Fitzwilliam-Lay, the owner of this Victorian country house in Shropshire has enhanced the interiors of this grand property with her signature mid-century aesthetic without compromising original features. This bedroom features panels of tropical Pierre Frey wallpaper and a matching tropical-themed lampshade. Plain bedding allows the leopard print headboard to take centre stage.
A pink-and-white striped floor, paired with a painted mural above the chimneypiece (see more of our favourite murals), adds geometric patterns and strong colours to create a fun scheme in this bedroom. The mural adds personality and warmth, as does the neon-yellow side table from Muuto.

Schooled in matters of taste by her mother, when designer Emma Burns inherited the former stables that her parents had converted as a weekend retreat, she put into practice the principles that now guide her professional work for Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler. This cosy bedroom has beamed ceilings, and is furnished mainly with antiques.
Here in the main bedroom, previously the banqueting hall, the crest of the Peruzzi family, bankers to Henry III and subsequently to Henry VIII, cover the walls. The Torre pre-dates Chaucer, Brunelleschi’s Duomo and Michelangelo’s David.
Definitely prefer the classic looking bedrooms to modern. Although the modern bedrooms look artistic and clean, they look too cold for my taste. I like soft, warm colors rather than bold and bright ones for bedrooms. I think it’s because brighter colors make me feel more awake, but when I am in a bedroom I want to relaxed and be calm. When I was a little girl I had a canopy bed — the hangings always made me feel like I was a princess in a fairytale or something. Fast forward 30 years later, and I still want to feel that way…my bedroom is decorated with Victorian accent pieces from LookInTheAttic. They restore heirloom pieces and do custom finishing. I am quite happy with my bedroom, but my daughter is the complete opposite from me — she wants to have bright pink polka dots all over her room. What do you say people? Should I give in?
Light green walls and a headboard in Colefax & Fowler’s ‘Evesham’ give this bedroom designed by Caroline Harrowby a fresh, floral look. Its eclectic style is made elegant with pretty curtains and a painted dressing table from the owners’ previous home.
The Roman blinds in the bedroom of designer Mark Smith’s Kensington flat are made from the same dark green wool from Holland & Sherry that covers the walls; even the picture in the bedroom have been painted in a matching shade.
Blue and white striped walls make this room feel bigger, a clever effect that is strengthened by the matching headboard. The subtle nautical style with industrial touches seems particularly fitting for a bedroom in this Victorian water tower conversion.
We love the combination of styles in this room, from paisley print bedding to a geometric rug to a sixties style light and swing chair. Also note how the bed is located in the middle of the room – a styling idea to steal perhaps?
Lots of kids want a rainbow-bright bedroom, and why not? If your daughter loves color, but not necessarily all pink, keep the floors, the furniture and the walls (other than perhaps one accent wall) neutral, and then go wild on the bedding, small furnishings and accessories. A crazy-bright accent wall mural is another fun touch that works in a child’s space, but is too much for the master bedroom. This adorable room was found on Craft-O-Maniac.
The artist owners of this London house called on interior designer Beata Heuman to create a family home full of fun, distinctive design. A highly original space, unapologetically theatrical and oozing energy. ‘The owners are both artists. They have quite wild tastes and they love strong colours,’ says Beata. The main bedroom has a bespoke sofa upholstered in Beata’s signature marbleised fabric and lion claw feet. Other notable features include a pair of breglass dance-hall mirrors from French Loft and the ceiling painted in ‘Lulworth Blue’ by Farrow & Ball. ‘I have this thing about painting ceilings blue. It seems over the top, but it adds a feeling of height and once it is in, you don’t really think about it’.
