I really like these rooms I’m trying to design my daughters room because we are moving soon and i think the book shelfs are a great idea to store small things and big things without taking up space so thanks!!!!!
For those who have large space to spare, it is best to design a kid’s bedroom that is as large as possible. It gives them much needed freedom and there is a far lesser chance of him bumping his head into anything. This fashionable design in Grey, white and yellow does just that.
For a scheme in House & Garden’s August 2017 issue, Acting Decoration Editor Ruth Sleightholme worked with wicker designs and French textiles in a bedroom with distressed paintwork and tiled floors in Atelier Vime’s eighteenth-century hôtel particulier, Hotel Drujon.
Revamping a teenage son’s bedroom? How about this clean-cut but cosy scheme? A stylish ottoman at the end of the bed provides an easy, clear-away-clutter storage solution and a desk doubles up as grooming table in case the young man is fond of a little preening.
A dresser with mismatched drawers provides a fun storage solution in this boy’s bedroom, where grey walls provide a neutral backdrop for unusual design details. A ‘Love’ rug by Paul Smith, hanging model airplane and car print on the wall also add interest.

I have a thing for fairytales and so I always seek for that ‘happily ever after’ look in my home. With its tactile textures, warming beige tones and flowing covers, this bedroom is the epitome of a bed that’s fit for a princess and her prince – or me and my fiancé. It’s clear that the main focus of the room is the bed itself and so, as I believe that you can never have enough scatter cushions either, this scene is my ideal bedroom.
The key to successful children’s bedroom design is clever storage. Make storage practical, accessible and easy to use, so that children have a place where everything goes. Encourage children to have an input into the colour scheme or theme, if they buy into the idea of the room from the start and have a hand in how it is planned and arranged, then they are more likely to take pride in keeping it organised and tidy. Baskets, trays, cupboards with doors and drawers are all good options. If you have the luxury of space then try to keep storage to the outer edges of the room so that children have a clearly identifiable place in which to play. Room to play in a free and unstructured way allows children to be more imaginative in their learning. Image Credit
Maximising light and space was essential to show the owner’s post-war art and sleek French art deco furniture to their best advantage in this elegant Pimlico flat. In the bedroom nineteenth-century photographs bought from Portobello Market hang above the bed, while built in bookshelves flank the windows.
Soft coral and brown? It may be out of imagination, but it turns out so beautiful and girly. Love the patterned wall art above the bed, the black and white lampshade, the “DREAM” decorative letters on the side storage dresser…Who doesn’t want a bedroom like this as a teenage girl? via House of Rose Blog.

Architect Jonathan Tuckey wanted to combine ‘twenty-first-century comforts with seventeenth-century character’ in this timber-lined chalet in this Swiss Alps, which he imaginatively modernised. Jonathan paired the idea of old and new in this first-floor bedroom with a pair of Fifties rosewood beds from Modernisticks and kept the original plywood walls and floorings, which compliments the subtle decoration of the rest of the chalet.
The dream bedroom for teens, black 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!
Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons wanted a mid-century house and found this Thirties house in rural Hertfordshire. Built in 1936 by the renowned public sector architect Mary Medd, Sewell’s Orchard was apparently unpopular with the locals at the time, who likened its monopitch roof and pared-back design to that of a factory. This neutral spare room is brightened up with the addition of prints and a lively geometric blanket.
This bedroom in Shoreditch House by Soho House is decorated in a neutral and stylish scheme with red features. Panelling makes the space cosy; painted in light grey, it doesn’t shrink the already small space.
Make tidying up more fun with pretty fabric storage boxes slotted into a white-painted unit. A large scale wall sticker picks up on the colours of the boxes to turn the storage area into a focal point.
Inspiration for a soft and elegant room design is easy to display with floral print bedding. Pick out a fun daisy print on a duvet cover and shams to add some cheer to your space. Bring out the colors of your bedding by using the complementary sheet sets we have available. Placing rugs around the floor softens the overall look and feel within the room. Adding golden finished lamps and chairs brings a cool finishing touch of glamour to your space.
Decorating with multiple colours can be an intimidating task for even the most seasoned of designers. No matter how genuine our initial enthusiasm for venturing across to the other side of the paint chart, it is all too easy to get cold feet and talk ourselves out of being more courageous with colour, settling instead for safe, neutral schemes. Colour, however, shouldn’t be used exclusively to make a statement. Gabby Deeming set herself the challenge of creating four palettes from the Mylands paint range. Each palette is made up of four shades that would sit together harmoniously in a space, and work beautifully with textiles and wallpapers. The walls are painted in ‘Piccadilly’ and ‘Palmerston Pink’, £34.66 for 2.5 litres matt emulsion, while the floor is in ‘Honest John’, £21.65 for 1 litre water-based eggshell, all from Mylands.
