This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions.
Architect Francesca Oggioni wanted a new layout for her Grade II listed house in west London that would work as a family home, workspace and backdrop for her extensive art collection. She purchased her home with her Belgian husband, a hedge-fund manager, photographer and art collector. Their main bedroom has plenty of shelving and storage to maintain the sleek, clutter-free aesthetic of the house.
And like Kelllyyy(= said, the balcony, full glass windows, and the giant skylight isn’t somthing the average family has. And avarage family girls are the ones who will be using this website, trying to find ideas. These rooms are more like somthing we dream about. Not actually have in reality.
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.
Blue curtains add colour to this white bedroom in a Victorian terrace house in London designed by Sarah Stewart-Smith. Although this is a small bedroom, space has been found to include a workspace at the foot of the bed. Transparent furniture ensures that this addition doesn’t make the small space feel cramped.
Known for their sensitive restoration of historic buildings in Scotland, conservation architects Nick Groves-Raines and Kristin Hannesdottir relished the challenge of saving Lamb’s House in Leith, where they now live and work. The elegant main bedroom has an original beamed ceiling, complemented by a large rustic wooden headboard.

I have seen this image come up on my Pinterest feed a few times in the past and have always thought I would love to be lying in that bed reading a good book! I love the contrast of black and white and think it’s a clever decision to have the fur on the end of the bed so it warms up the rest of the scheme. The artwork is oversized but not overpowering and I am always drawn to a simple colour palette- in this case it’s black, white and brown with a touch of gold. It’s simple, elegant and beautiful.

Warm gray walls serve as a blank canvas to accommodate bright furniture and accessories in this little girl’s bedroom. A whimsy upholstered kid’s headboard mimics the shape of a house, and a yellow footboard and mirror add bright color. A hopscotch rug ties the room’s colors together while also providing a fun game to play.
The concrete floors and exposed brick painted in white may create a cool warehouse feel but the nonchalantly styled books and pictures, as well as the texured bedding and soft throws keep the scheme from being sterile.
It’s exciting to open up possibilities with the girls’ dorm inspiration we’ve created with your decorating freedom in mind. Layering your bed with solid color sheeting and a striped comforter in gray or blue creates an inviting bed where you can get some restful sleep. Adding geometric plush pillows in contrasting colors turns your bed or chairs into fun focal points of the room. Bring depth into your dorm room design by placing our peel-and-stick wallpaper in a shiplap design on the walls. Pegboards and caddies offer you a place to keep important memos and information close at hand.
The bedroom is usually quite a simple room. The design and layout is far less complicated than a kitchen or bathroom, so you can put a lot of focus on the decoration, style and colours you’re using. Start by thinking about who will be using the bedroom. Is it you alone? With your partner? Your teenage children? That’ll set the tone for your style.
Just because your space is small does not mean your pieces can’t be large. Use a monochromatic color scheme because it creates an illusion for the eyes. Choose one color family and select variations of it for the largest parts of your rooms. Natural light will also be your friend. Use sheer window treatments or leave them off entirely. Consider furnishings that have multiple purposes. And always, create a space you love!
While adults prefer a space that’s calm and understated, teens appreciate vibrantly colored, high energy rooms. The wall is the biggest area you can work with in a bedroom. Some of the best teen bedroom ideas involve the walls. Here are our favorite:
Architect Francesca Oggioni had to set aside her rationalist principles when she was planning a new layout for her listed house in west London, so it would work as a family home, workspace and backdrop for an extensive art collection. This spare bedroom on the top floor has neutral decoration allows the artwork to be the focus of the room.
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 bedroom in the South of France decorated by Samantha Todhunter includes all the best elements of a bedroom and sitting room combined. The armchairs are covered in ‘La Fiorentina’, from the David Hicks by Ashley Hicks collection for Groundworks at Lee Jofa. The pretty pale blue curtains are in ‘Ipeka Nuage’ linen from Lelievre.
