Have a small space? This kids’ room designed by Eve Mercier packs a lot of punch. Housed in a petite family home (a former artist’s studio in Chelsea), this multi-purpose room includes a loft bed, two wall-mounted benches that transform into beds (bed-linen is concealed below), and a third, drawer bed (pictured here) which slides out when needed.
Vintage vanity is on the list for Squiggles’ room. I like the color of this one: Fresh coat of paint on vanity and recovering with a fun Amy Butler coral/orange print. Love keeping the furniture that I grew up with and giving it new life for Ava’s room.
Even though not all of the design ideas have a particular theme, the decorating elements are connected, creating interiors that are both functional and stylish. See below, and also be sure to read 20 Fun and Cool Teen Bedroom Ideas.
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.
This bedroom belongs to Vanessa and James Macdonald’s son, Rupert, at their family home in the rolling hills of Oxfordshire. The red gingham of the headboard and armchair compliments the patterned red and white curtains. Soft neutral colours in the carpet and on the walls allows the red to pleasantly pop rather than overwhelm the room.
Planes, trains and automobiles: the duvet covers, wall stickers and underbed boxes all draw on this theme. Good storage ensures the room is kept tidy but a simple chalk/pin board allows for a little creativity and a place to display treasured possessions.
Does your child have a favourite book or television character that you’re considering including in a design scheme? Bedding is the clever option as it doesn’t involve too much commitment (and we all now how fickle kids can be). We love the creative use of paint on the walls which works with the theme now but could also be adapted later.
Bring a little nature into your room with silk plants, animal statuettes and baskets. Faux succulents require no care but add garden beauty to shelves and windowsills. Glass tabletop terrariums do well in a partially shaded area, like on a desk in front of a window or on a graduated set of shelves against a bedroom wall. Accent the look with country-inspired wall-hangings like longhorns and guitar case shelves. Finalize the theme with a few brightly colored fabric tapestries for a country-inspired bedroom that’s every bit as fresh as the outdoors. Hanging a few of your favorite art pieces is also an excellent way to decorate.
Monochrome is the among the most confident of interior styles. Inspired by the elegance of 1960s black-and-white fashion photography, it’s a style that’s endured. Here, a colourless room uses a hint of grey and asymmetry to its advantage.
After years at Colefax and Fowler, owner Wendy Nicholls is clear about what makes a good interior, and the decoration of her London home reflects the style she has honed both personally and professionally.
Alastair Hendy was initially reluctant to view the Grade II listed 16th century property From the beginning, however, the house took a grip on Alastair and, although much had been obliterated, the bones of the house were all original and he was able to see its potential. It would be the start of a five-year restoration project that involved Alastair taking a crash course in 16th century building practices and engaging local craftsmen. The cosy spare room has beds under the sloped roof to create relaxing nooks.
I LOVE # 3. I’ve mached most of it sofar in my room but cant seem to find the bed style. I also love # 4 and have merged some of that style into my room.
