The dream bedroom for teens, back comforter with large pink flowers on it and gold stars on the wall. Where did that comforter and sham set come from?? M daughter loves it and I cannot seem to find anything similar. Beautiful room!
A shining example of how to do ‘kids’ room coastal’. Classic by the sea style is still used: the wall panneling, touches of white and wicker baskets, but the addition of turquoise and the unique painted furniture give it a younger, fun feel.
Here’s another room that would thrill just about any little girl, but isn’t going to break your budget. The pretty floral bedding, shelves filled with well-loved dolls and stuffed animals, and the appealing color scheme all add to the scene, but it’s the paper pompom flowers up on the ceiling and the faux butterflies streaming across the wall and the windows that turn the space into a wow. If you don’t want to buy similar paper pretties, it’s easy enough to make your own. Check out these…MORE directions for DIY paper flowers and washi tape butterflies.
A gauzy, ceiling-hung canopy is a nice touch to a girl’s bedroom decor. Not only does it give this twin bed princesslike appeal, it also adds interesting height to the corner of the room. Simple, casual furnishings in neutral hues allow your little girl’s decorating style to change easily as she grows. Clever storage space below the bed make clean-up after play time a breeze and teach her the values of organization.
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.

Here in the main bedroom, previously the banqueting hall, the crest of the Peruzzi family, bankers to Henry III and to Henry VIII, cover the walls. The Torre pre-dates Chaucer, Brunelleschi’s Duomo and Michelangelo’s David.

Designer 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. The daughter’s room features striking striped wallpaper by The Art of Wallpaper and contains lots of bright, clashing patterns. This fun scheme makes for a lively space.
Cool beds for girls don’t need to be castle-shaped or have a slide. Sometimes what makes a bed unique is where it’s placed. In this case, the perfect little nook. A happy shade of pink surrounds a sleeping alcove with year-round freshness. The peony pattern is charming for a young girl, yet mature enough to suit her well into her teen years. For a fun twist, pair girls’ bedroom colors, like pink, with a hint of teal. Here, a scalloped border of robin’s egg blue provides a sweet contrast for this playful pink bedroom.
Remember that storage doesn’t necessarily have to be in the bedroom. If you have a corridor near the room consider utilising that as a place to put wardrobes, as designer Philippa Thorpe has in this Chelsea house.
This bedroom in the Tudor wing of Bradwell Lodge – the perfect neoclassical country house in miniature – is decorated with ‘Regent’ wallpaper and matching blinds from Bernard Thorp. The scheme may be sweet and soothing but the room is allegedly haunted.
This small bedroom has dark green walls in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Olive’ paint. The single divan bed base is furnished with a ‘Casati’ headboard from Ensemblier London upholstered in ‘Faded Monochrome Teal Roses’ from Bennison. A limed wood antique commode is used as a bedside table, topped with a pile of books and simple glass vase filled with fresh flowers.
Something new and colourful is what I thought I’d do,’ says interior designer Gytha Nuttall of the decoration of her converted nineteenth-century schoolhouse in Battersea. ‘But as the project developed, slowly I returned to all the muddy colours I love best.’
House & Garden picture editor Owen Gale transformed his loft, turning the space into a bedroom, bathroom and music studio. Here is the bedroom, which has a ceiling height of just two metres. Farrow & Ball’s ‘All White’ was used to make the room feel light and spacious, while vertical tongue-and-groove panelling also worked to the same effect.
Designer Jonathan Tuckey redesigned this London mews house in Notting Hill for a former submariner. The house is designed to enable the internal layout to be adjusted; the main bedroom can be screened off from the staircase and roof terrace for added privacy.
In this glamorous bedroom at Soho House Berlin, furniture is scaled up for the vast rooms. (note the unusually tall headboard.) Designer Susie Atkinson chose bold colours: burgundy and Dorothy Draper-inspired turquoise.
There’s something so chic about bold black and white paired with freshly painted, crisp white walls. A monochrome duvet is the perfect way to try the trend – and don’t forget to add bright pops of colour (lime green works well, as does the electric blue and tangerine shown here).
The addition of a large basement extension to this Edwardian house freed up space on the upper floors for bright and capacious rooms, and a more fluid layout ideal for family living. Owners Dominic and Claire chose design duo Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock to decorate the home.
Wendy Nicholls of Colefax and Fowler has honed her personal and professional style in her London flat which is full of Victorian accents and unique accessories. Wendy’s bedroom has a softer palette, with an embroidered bedspread from Chelsea Textiles. Walls of pale mauveish grey show off the yellow silk of the four-poster’s simple, unlined curtains. Her shock revelation is that they were made from silk taken from the curtains in the yellow drawing room at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler’s Brook Street building. That room, with its lacquered buttercup walls and three pairs of massive curtains hung about with passementerie, was a shrine to decorating, an emblem of their grandest classical style. Was it heresy to cut up its curtains? Wendy quickly assures that these were the last remnants of earlier pairs, which had fallen into shreds.
Originally Rita’s room before the expansion of her London flat, this single spare bedroom would make a wonderful kid’s room thanks to its unique and quirky design. The curtains are in ‘Broadcloth’ felt from Hainsworth and the walls are lined in Tyler Hall’s ‘First Bloom’ wallpaper from Tissus d’Hélène, with a Guatemalan tapestry that Phil brought back from his travels.
Designer Paolo Moschino commissioned painter Dawn Reader to create the stripes on the walls here. She custom-mixed the blue to match Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam’s ‘Melba Stripe’ fabric in the blue on ecru colourway, but Edward Bulmer’s ‘Fair Blue’ natural paint is similar; £41.50 for a 2.5-litre pot of emulsion.
A contemporary blue wall paint, loud print bedding and some favourite records hung on the walls: it doesn’t take much to create a cool bedroom for a young teenager. You can throw the bike in too if you’re feeling generous!
Avast, ye landlubbers! (We love any excuse for pirate speak.) What kid wouldn’t love this pirate-inspired room, with its storytelling wall sticker and stars-and-stripes theme? However, when the pirate phase wanes, all these accessories can be removed to leave a smart navy bunk bed and wardrobe within a neutral scheme.
Hannah Cecil Gurney’s west London flat is a feast of luxurious colour, texture and pattern – little surprise given that her father founded the handmade wallpaper company de Gournay. In the main bedroom hand-painted silk cushions and a Burmese lamp pick up on the green in the ‘Badminton’ wallpaper from de Gournay, which ‘provides a cocoon of birds and butterflies that makes [Hannah] so happy’. The paper has been antiqued in order to give a tarnsihed effect.
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.
‘Scandinavians live for light. Inside Scandinavian houses it is summer all the time,’ says designer Lars Bolander in his book Scandinavian Design (Vendome Press). It is certainly true in his little 1800s farmhouse in Sweden. The home took a year to renovate, including breaking through the original chimney to create a fireplace in the main bedroom. The furniture is a mix of Swedish and English, while the walls are lined with ‘F124 Forget-me-not Spring in Pink’ from Chelsea Textiles.
I’m a 14 year old girl, and I am re-doing my small bedroom. None of these (with the exception of the first one) are realistic or what I’m looking for. I hate the unoriginality of the modern rooms and the pompous air in the others.
