If you thought a small master bedroom couldn’t be every inch the equal in elegance to those huge rooms you see on Pinterest or in glossy interior decorating magazines, one look at Steven Ford Interior’s gorgeous navy blue, cream, and gray bedroom will change your mind. Stunning.
Lettering on the wall and a stellar light fixture give a more youthful feel to this stylish bedroom in designer Sarah Stewart-Smith’s Herefordshire family home. The small space is made to feel bigger with a curtain separating the cosy bed area from a seating area with a desk, with the grey colour scheme continued throughout.
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.
This chic attic conversion consists of soft neutrals and classic furniture that could easily be seen in the ‘grown-up’ bedrooms of the house. However the sweet matching wall art gives it a younger feel.
Kelly Hoppen’s London house shows off her trademark slick, neutral style. The main bedroom, which has an internal window looking down onto the open-plan ground floor, features a neutral colour scheme of white and taupe. ‘You probably haven’t even noticed the other major thing I’ve done here,’ says Kelly. And it’s at this point that I come to appreciate not only Kelly’s dedication to detail, but also her refusal to take herself too seriously. ‘I’ve mixed sand with taupe,’ she says with mock triumph.
This bedroom in the Florescu’s house belongs to Lizzie and Ion’s son Leopold. Pattern – and therefore fun – is injected through the blind, made of Jane Churchill’s ‘Deverell Stripe’. This room is full of personal touches, for example, the model of a Cadogan Square house was made by Leopold himself.

Or, opt for a hollywood-style frame that supports the bottom of the bed and extends no further than the perimeter of the mattress. You can decorate the space above the bed with art, or add a headboard later.
Give a simple four-poster bed a sweet update with girly curtains and bedding. Pink fabrics keep the scheme girly, while the off-white walls mean that it can be updated as the child grows. Opt for a trundle bed for extra space when friends come to stay, and display their favourite toys proudly in a white-painted shelving unit.
Ensure it’s spring all year around with a fresh, zesty green colour scheme. Don’t be fearful of combining patterns and prints in the same colour but this is best applied in smaller touches – one feature wall, one piece of furniture and textiles added to a neutral base.
As much as possible, owner Anne-Marie tried to match the wall colours to those that her grandmother had used, keeping the bedrooms the same subtle colours, but adding ‘ribbons’ of colour to outline the architecture and ‘dress the room’.
