After visiting her friend Kathryn Ireland in France’s Tarn region, Anne Halsey bought a French farmhouse retreat there and enlisted the help of the decorator to create a relaxed space perfect for entertaining. This twin bedroom is decorated with a pastel pink colour palette and features white gauzy canopies, which are often adored by children (particularly those who like princesses). The subtle scheme is ideal for young and teenage girls alike as this style is both fun and ‘grown-up’.

A girls bedroom furniture is an essential component of the design. You can choose from a wide variety of furniture pieces that are specifically created for little girls or search for pieces that can be used when she is a teenager and adult. For example, a dresser with an attached mirror will look attractive in your daughters when she is young but will become useful as she matures into an adolescent and starts wearing makeup. Similarly a trundle bed will last for many years in a small girls room and provide an extra place for your daughter’s friends to sleep when she has slumber parties. It is also perfect for a shared girls room because it can be tucked away during the day to free up space in the room. Other small room design ideas that will save space try searching for pretty white bunk beds or a lofted bed which you can put a desk or dresser underneath. When she is older she can even put a futon underneath for a fun place to hang out with her friends.
Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure this child’s bedroom in Gytha Nuttall’s south London home is flooded with natural light. The internal windows also emphasises a feeling of height, which is much-needed here – the structure of an office space in a former schoolhouse was adapted to create this ‘flat within a flat’.
My personal choice of colour palette frequently ebbs towards darker, richer tones during the winter months, because these tend to evoke warmth and comfort. This dark and alluring charcoal-coloured bedroom in a loft apartment creates instant drama and is instantly warmed by the blonde tones of the striking herringbone floor. Finished off with an exciting array of textiles, including a ‘must-have’ upholstered headboard, this bed is sheer indulgence. I also love the carefully curated collection of objects featured on the distressed shelving, and not forgetting the luxe-look side table. Perfection! Image credit
‘The key with toys is to design somewhere for them to go,’ says interior designer Bunny Turner of Turner Pocock. The green ottoman at the foot of the bed in this room doubles as fancy dress storage and a vault for gymnastics.

The main bedroom in designer Paul de Zwart’s Kensal Rise home cleverly combines decorative details with storage; a chest of drawers built into the alcove is made from the same material as the wall cladding. The two ‘Leggera’ chairs from Giò Ponti add colour.

The colours are peaceful and pleasant, as they are throughout the house. ‘Above all, I wanted the colours to be calm; this pale colour palette makes a narrow house seem less claustrophobic and fussy, and meant that I could add pattern through the other textiles.’

Before moving in, the owners asked the interior designer, architectural historian and natural paint expert Edward Bulmer for his help. ‘Edward has a marvellous eye,’ says the owner. ‘We worked with him at our previous home. He has a great feel for colour and he is fantastic at arranging furniture and pictures.’
The power of three. If you keep the rest of your room plain, have three statement touches to make the room pop. Here, it’s the artwork above the bed, the pink pillowcases and the bright stools. Simple, no?
In designer Ben Pentreath’s flat, both bedrooms are papered. As Ben explains, ‘I like using wallpaper because I love the layers of pattern and colour that it brings to a room.’ Soane’s delicate ‘Seaweed Lace’ wallpaper contrasts with the bold blanket from Pendleton in the main A Marianna Kennedy ‘Spring’ lamp in blue adds a different colour to the room.
The vintage photos and beautiful wooden bed (with a built-in bookcase, natch) isn’t the only reason this is a dream bedroom. One of two bedrooms in the Royal Suite at The Goring hotel in London, it also features a private balcony which runs the entire length of the building, overlooking the hotel’s private garden and the London rooftops beyond. Suite dreams…
Maria Speake of Retrouvius relaid the ‘slightly unimaginative’ oak flooring of this home to transform the basement into a cheerful playroom for the kids. The mix of mid-century influences with bright colour is proof that grown-up tastes can still be child friendly.
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.
Since moving into her husband’s Wiltshire farmhouse, designer Sarah Vanrenen has enhanced its quirky charm, with an adjusted layout and unexpected colours. The embroidered linen bedspread was bought at a flea market in France, the rug came from Morocco and an Uzbek tribal coat hangs on the wall.
We discovered Room to Bloom’s clever cupboard bed via The List – House & Garden’s new online directory (find out more here). The bed is an ideal solution for an awkward small space – in this case, a long, narrow room interrupted by a staircase. It is built around the stair, and has ample storage for toys and books thanks to under-bed drawers, a bookcase and internal shelving.
This seating area for a bedroom, which is part of a scheme created by our decoration director Gabby Deeming in a rustic Dutch farmhouse, has a botanical theme. The backdrop is set by ‘Deep Celadon Green’ paint from Papers and Paints, £38.40 for 2.5 litres matt emulsion, which picks out the other shades of green in the hand-printed wallpaper ‘Iznik GM’ (crotte d’elephant), 100cm wide, €233 a metre, from Emery & Cie.
Made.com founder Chloe Macintosh’s bedroom is an elegant combination of deep blue walls and oatmeal coloured stripes. For fabric with a similar feel try Romo or Le Gracieux, who both do a striped cotton with a similarly painterly feel.
Most bedrooms function as living and playing spaces, which means decorating needs to work double-duty. Choose a rich color, like this terra-cotta, and introduce accents in natural tones to keep the room feeling warm and comfortable.
Famed for her work on Firmdale Hotels, Kit Kemp’s own home is unsurprisingly full of her trademark mix of pattern. The fabric used for the bedhead and cushions in the bedroom are by Christine Van Der Hurd.
I liked alot of the room designs you have here but I think most of them are extremley unrealistic, like most girls don’t have rooms that size….most of those rooms were massive and had stairs etc. But I did like the designs!
Nurture the art lover in your teen by decorating their bedroom walls with prints they’ve picked. If their room is already a technicolour dream, pick a portrait that incorporates as many of the colours as possible to tie the room together.
For House & Garden’s Carole Annett, a passing request for decorating advice from her friend, the interior designer Emma Sims Hilditch, turned into the top-to-bottom redecoration of her Surrey house. Carole chose Zoffany’s ‘Eleonora’ paper for a spare room.
