If you’re a ‘less is more’ person then this is the bedroom scheme for you. The key is in keeping colours muted but the furniture interesting – the four-poster bed has presence and works well with the high ceilings in this room; anything less and the room may feel bare.
This cosy bedroom at Soho Farmhouse features green floral wallpaper, creating a countryside feel. Matching curtains form a cosy canopy around the four-poster bed. This design is ideal for a small space.
In the main bedroom of Robin Muir’s house, which was designed by Caroline Holdaway, the bedcover is ‘Fig’ from Raoul Textiles; the reverse is used for the cushions. Unpolished floorboards and white walls give this room a pared-back look.
These are some really great designs for anyone with smaller bedrooms! A lot of people choose to go with less or smaller furniture, in order to maximize floor space. But I’ve always preferred some of the ideas put forward here, like full-wall shelving and other ways to maximize space.
There are many different steps to decorating a kids room that begin with deciding on a theme and end with choosing what color you wish to adorn the walls with. Obviously you have multiple choices for decorating the walls of your childs bedroom, however the two most popular options wallpaper and paint. While wallpaper comes in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and textures, it tends to be a much more tedious process with more permanent results. Removing it takes a lot of time and effort, and can also damage your walls. Paint, on the other hand, does not take a lot of time to apply and can easily become a do it yourself project. Plus, as cartoon characters and games become more popular, companies are creating paint colors for girls room that are based off of popular kids shows such as Dora the Explorer and toy brands like Fischer Price. Paint a bright pink and purple girls room that has wall decals of Swiper and Boots or choose a more subtle green that is found in the popular baby brand Luv U Zoo.

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 Marche aux Puces in Paris.
Ideally, a bedroom should be a clean, minimal space for you to unwind in, but I also love how creativity has crept into this Scandi interior. Full of personality, this scrapbook/shelving arrangement complements the DIY aesthetic of the room and accompanies the hanging bulb light fixture perfectly. Framed pictures are non-existent but instead, a quick fix of inspirational imagery taped to the wall is the ultimate effortless decorative feature. I like how black accents can be detected from the tape, light and bedside table; bringing all of the decorations together, but still harnessing that spontaneous element. Image credit
