Designer William Yeoward’s takeover of our June style pages, to celebrate the anniversary of his company, yielded a timeless scheme that celebrated his work past and present. In a room painted Farrow & Ball’s ‘Card Room Green’, an Eighteenth century screen from Hollyhock works in a similar manner to a mural. The bespoke tented cupboard was created by Clock House Furniture from William Yeoward at Designers Guild fabric. The chest of drawers and the bed are also of William’s design, with bedding from The Linen Works.
A net of interlocking ribbons attached to blank walls is a great way to display your favorite photos, postcards or other paper memorabilia. Plus, the art can be switched out at any time to suit changing moods, styles or tastes.
Using a chic modernist pallet of bold colours creates a light and inviting bedroom scene. The walls are covered in ‘Weathered Walls’ by Maya Romanoff at Pierre Frey with a bold patterned curtain from ‘Jardin d’Osier’ silk at Hermès. The mirror from The Conran Shop creates an added depth to the room, and makeshift bedside storage.
This design scheme is all about sumputous colour and texture. Soft pinks and rich raspberry reds are combined with a heavy piled rug, plentiful cushions and throws, plus a drape above the bed. The result is glamorous and very inviting.
I’m really into using dark colours in the bedroom. It creates such an intimate vibe and I find it incredibly relaxing, plus it’s super sophisticated and very glamorous! The designer did a great job in creating a room that incorporates beautiful traditional elements like the panelling and mouldings, but brings it up to date with bold lighting and metallics. To make this room more ‘me’ I’d add a few more POP art elements, calm accent colours and a bit of street chic with the accessories. Image credit

This is a house to fall in love with, located in a Cotswold village so unfeasibly pretty you want to bottle it to savour. In the bedroom you can almost do just that – it opens to the garden. The owners decorated it themselves but Nina Campbell is an old friend and ‘still have many things she found’. Here, they matched the bedcover from The White Company to the beams, given a greyish, limed-effect finish to retain a sense of airiness.
In the London apartment of Venetian designer Alvise Orsini, ricepaper has been painted to match two eighteenth-century Chinese wall panels found at auction. ‘It is impossible to tell the difference,’ he says. The gilded bed, possibly by Georges Jacob (1739-1814) was found in Paris, while the eighteenth-century velvet bedcover, embroidered with gold thread, was acquired at a Christie’s textiles auction.
This is a beautiful girl’s room. The room has been done in child friendly and soft colours. Alphabet decals are put on the wall perhaps to satisfy the concept of play way learning. There is colour everywhere to hold the interest of my little princess so that everything around her fascinates her.
When designing a bedroom, the most obvious place to start is with the bed. After all, without a good bed, it’s difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Make sure you choose the right size bed for the size of your bedroom. A super king size bed will dominate a small bedroom, making it difficult to move around the space or fit in any other bedroom furniture, while a standard double bed might look a bit lost in a large bedroom. Measure your bedroom, and make sure the bed you choose will allow for at least 70cm of circulation space around the sides and end of the bed.

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.
When done right, black wall paint can make a chic statement in your sleep space. The trick? Paint one wall black and leave the others a bright white, then fill your room with colorful decor in fun patterns and textures.
When renovating this Renovated Farmhouse, Maria Speake of Retrovious kept an eye out for continuity between rooms. For example, here in the spare room the walls are lined with ‘Sheep’ wallpaper from The Art of Wallpaper thus echoing the animal theme of the children’s bathroom.
When else in your life can you have a bed that looks a boat? So indulge your child’s fantasies with a themed room; chic pale blue walls with red and white accessories keep this nautical room uniformed and smart without being garish or twee.

The bedroom of designer Kim Wilkie’s London flat features a bed from Heal’s and two sash windows, which allow light to pour into the room. The artichoke artwork above the bed (from the Hortus Eystettensis codex) highlights the green of the bed cover.
The colour coral is back in vogue. According to Josephine Bennett, head of design at Laura Ashley, warm tones of sable with touches of coral give a subtle and slightly less feminine feel to this colour scheme. We like.
Owner Lavinia needs no introduction to regular readers of House & Garden, as she has been one of its legendary house finders since 1986. Between then and now, she has scoured the British Isles and beyond in pursuit of the best in interior decoration, and at last count has visited about 4,000 houses on behalf of the magazine. This is the first time that one of her own houses has featured here. ‘After all these years,’ she says with a laugh, ‘I thought, well, why not?’
