Interior designer Virginia Howard had no intention of moving from Knightsbridge to Pimlico, until a balcony flat in a nineteenth-century garden square changed her mind. The bedroom is decorated in a pale green colour scheme. The elegant, Grade II-listed stucco building overlooks the garden square in central London, bringing the outside in. Two meagre bedrooms were knocked into one generous one, filled with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
This bedroom is a masterclass on eclectic style. The bedroom wallpaper (try here or House of Hackney for similar) clashes with the tartan and floral bedding, yet the blue-green colour scheme, accented with pops of hot pink ties it all together. The bed might be ornate, but the muted colour adds just the right amount of neutral tones, which allows the eye to rest.

The sludgy tones work for Gytha, who with her property-developer husband Jean Michel Bouchon discovered the apartment while renting the flat next door. Where possible, Gytha has avoided using paint. ‘I don’t really like it’ she says. ‘It gives no depth.’ Instead a linen-effect wallpaper by Flamant has been used in the main bedroom, acting as a moody backdrop to a gallery wall of pictures and the red upholstered headboard. ‘It never scuffs, and at night – with low light – it’s just magical. I’m an anti-spotlight person.’
The comfortable guest bedroom features a moss green headboard, with Victorian style cushions and bedspread. Their brief to Gavin Houghton was to make the house traditional and cosy, featuring the best of classic English interior decoration.
Young parents often ask the following question to a child psychologist: how to instill in a child a love of reading? Of course, we are not experts on parenting, but we can give our answer to the question: a children’s library should be in each kids room.

Virginia White’s harmoniously diverse decoration of Lucy Turvill’s award-winning newbuild in Suffolk includes this spare room. Blinds made in a Florence Broadhurst fabric dress the narrow windows. It makes a colourful contrast with the neutral walls and flooring, including a red side table by Virginia White. A beautiful tapestry blanket from Blodwen lies across the bed.
Designer Mark Gillette makes careful use of colour and lighting in his flat, proving that even small spaces can handle a dark, dramatic palette of jewel-like amber offset with black and white. ‘I’m not afraid of colour, but I like to keep it contained,’ he says. The well-positioned light above the bed is useful for reading but also spotlights the white bedding, bringing light and space to the centre of the room. The clothes storage is also a clever design feature, both practical and beautiful.
This little girl’s room designed by member of The List Wickenden Hutley has a lovely calm palette of creams and whites. Elegant details such as the glass chandelier and the thick curtains are combined with classic toys such as a doll’s house and little car. The Lou Lou Ghost chairs, a miniature version of Phillipe Starck’s iconic Ghost design for Kartell, provide a very chic little drawing station.
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.
ahhh these room are huge!, thanks making them realistic, especially with all the sun lighting and windows, most of us id think atleast. have no lighting or a little lighting but have mopstly light bulb for lighting
I’m interested in function and beauty in my room; not space age cubicles with a splash of color here and there. Please include rooms that are actually realistic and comfortable. I don’t understand this obsession with doctor’s office style bedrooms…
If you choose to decorate your bedroom with one hue, be sure to vary the shades to create a calming vibe. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns (florals and stripes live well together) to add visual interest.
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.
The gallery wall above the bed adds a symetrical dimension to the traditional bedroom, making it instantly appealing. (See 100 ideas for hanging art for more tips.) A simple colour palette prompted by pale-grey walls is lifted by the gold and silver details and the headboard, which was made by Lavinia herself using ‘Sukriti’ fabric from Penny Morrison.
A dash of vintage, a sprinkle of whimsy and a drop of contemporary all seamlessly intertwined into this gorgeous kid’s room styled by Petite Vintage. The easy to reach storage space makes it easy to tidy up and keep things in their place. Plenty of floor space allows for freedom to move, play and imagine, and the bed frame creates a creative space within a space where dreams are made. The colours used are striking and pleasant and the warmth of the light enhance the colours and soften the geometric lines of the bed frame and the carpet. My tips for decorating a children’s bedroom would be to remember that fairy lights are not just for Christmas – use them in a child’s room to create a dreamy atmosphere and to not be afraid to mix vintage and contemporary styles.

An architecturally significant building from the Fifties by Victor Gruen (the architect who invented the shopping mall), the owners wanted to retain the period character by filling it with classic mid-century pieces. ‘These houses are often furnished with Eames and Mies ven der Rohe, which is just too obvious. While the house, and the furniture I have used in it are historical, I never want the space to feel like a museum,’ he says. ‘I want to stay true to the period, but reframe it for today; the mood now is fresher, softer, more subtle and subdued.’

In this guest bedroom, I wanted to create a fresh, but calm atmosphere. I’m a big believer that “less is more”, so I kept the styling to the minimum. White walls and crisp black and white bed linen give an airy feel to the room. The photos on top of the bed add a splash of colour that I believe is needed in every room. Yet the colours are not too vibrant to break the tranquil atmosphere. Colour and wooden details soften the overall look make the room more inviting. All in all, it’s a bedroom in very Scandinavian style: minimalist and relaxed, made for living. Image credit
Curtains screen the bed and add a cosy feel to this spare room in the home of Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada (who own design company Casamidy). Anne-Marie’s grandmother made this quilt, but if you don’t have such a talented grandmother, you can commission Cassandra Ellis to design and make something personal for you. Quilts using Cassandra’s own vintage silks, wools and cottons cost £190 per square metre; quilts combining fabrics of your own – such as dresses, shirts or fabrics picked up on your travels – cost £165 per square metre.
This bedroom would be stunning solely with the striking dark grey wall panel and monochrome bedding, but the addition of the rich ochre throw, writing desk, vintage chair and chic accessories adds an extra element that takes this stylish scheme to a whole new level.
This lovely – but tiny – home was once a library. Now it’s a testament to good use of small space, thanks to the designers at The Works. Notice the built-in cabinets and the recessed, upholstered “headboard” nook. Beautiful and genius.
Ett Hem in Stockholm must be one the most beautiful hotels in the world.

The room is not dull, however, thanks to a patterned headboard and exposed beams, which add interest to the space. As with many of the fabrics, cushions and rugs in her Somerset house, Sophie Hale went to Robert Kime for the floral fabric on the headboard. The ‘Susani Yellow’ linen is printed to resemble needlework and looks particularly pretty against the unpainted beams and neutral walls. It costs £210 a metre.

Gabby Deeming has created the atmosphere of a New England-style holiday home with painted wood and faded stripes. The walls are in ‘Faded Damask’ by Mulberry Home, while the bespoke wooden headboard can be made to order by Fafio, and is painted (along with all the rest of the wood work) in ‘Sea Cliff’ eggshell from Sanderson. The bedding is from Romo, and the driftwood side table is Oka.
The key to creating a cosy space? Three words: layering, layering, layering. Whether it’s pattern, colour or texture (all three is even better) more is more. To keep it from looking messy, make sure to repeat colours throughout the room and ensure there’s plenty of solid colour to break up the scheme.
