Gabby Deeming has created the atmosphere of a New England-style holiday home with painted wood furniture 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.
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.
This sweet daybed, with its heavenly canopy and pretty metallic wall stickers, makes for the perfect girls’ bedroom retreat for reading, napping or simply daydreaming. Dusty lilac walls and the lack of clutter also has a calming effect.
Sometimes, just one small detail which can bring a room together. In this case, the studs surrounding the bed’s cream headboard draws the eye, making the furniture the focal point of the room in the absence of any wall art. A perfect alternative for walls (or homes) where you can’t hang pictures.
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.

Adding golden finished lamps and chairs brings a cool finishing touch of glamour to your space.

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

Like many a family home, there are conflicting tastes present in the home of Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada, furniture designers and owners of Casamidy.

In the master bedroom, the hand forged iron ‘Diego bed’ by Anne-Marie takes centre-stage.

The artist owners of this London house called on interior designer Beata Heuman to create a family home full of fun, distinctive design. A highly original space, unapologetically theatrical and oozing energy. ‘The owners are both artists. They have quite wild tastes and they love strong colours,’ says Beata. The main bedroom has a bespoke sofa upholstered in Beata’s signature marbleised fabric and lion claw feet. Other notable features include a pair of breglass dance-hall mirrors from French Loft and the ceiling painted in ‘Lulworth Blue’ by Farrow & Ball. ‘I have this thing about painting ceilings blue. It seems over the top, but it adds a feeling of height and once it is in, you don’t really think about it’.

You are all totally missing the point of this. These are ideas for you, not things that you HAVE to do.So maybe you like the first or the second or the 24th. Maybe you don’t have the space or the money. What you could do is look for things in your room that are similar to the things in the picture. Secondly the reason the walls in some are bare are for a reason. The space on the wall if for you to hang your posters or pictures or just random stuff you like. Also if you notice how in some pictures the desk, bed, and entertainment area are like one huge piece. Perfect for small rooms. I am 13 and I am getting my room redone for my birthday and also looking for designs for my room. While I like some of these none are any I feel express myself so I won’t be choosing any designs similar to those in the pictures.

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.
