Whether you dream of a calm and restful sanctuary or a luxurious hotel-style bedroom, our gallery of bedroom ideas has expert advice on everything you need to know before you make a start, from finding the perfect mattress to choosing a bedroom colour scheme. Enhance the mood and ambiance with a carefully considered bedroom lighting scheme; make sure each side of the bed has task lighting for a spot of bedtime reading and compliment the style of the room with a statement overhead light or pendant.
Jewel tones are excellent choices for tween decor since they evoke femininity as well as a sense of glamour. Consider adding touches of gold in an up-to-date manner with satin brass hardware. Much more subdued than polished brass, the satin finish is soft and refined, and works especially well with colors such as purple, green, red and turquoise.
This room, done in daring strokes of aqua and pink, is proof that two colors can pack a punch. Looking to create your own dramatic look? Use large blocks of your chosen colors (such as on the wall and bedspread), limit patterns, and add in doses of white for a crisp finish.
Relocating to Oxford after 15 years in Japan and Hong Kong, the owners of this modern Victorian house put together a team of experts to create a mostly open-plan layout full of intriguing design details to capture the imagination.
Love the photos, really gave me some ideas on decorating my next flat. The bedroom in the new property is quite small but the walls are painted in a cream colour – will be easy to pick the right elements to decorate it. Since I’m a tenant, I’ll have to find non-destructive ways of decorating the place. I will also have to think how I’ll remove and clean the place when my tenancy comes to an end, but this isn’t a problem since London is full of shops and I have plenty of things to choose from.
The owners of this newbuild Bahamas beach house turned to trusted interior designer John McCall to provide their house with a British sensibility, practical furnishings and interiors that are not ‘too beachy’. A white palette characterises most rooms in the house. Pastel blue is added in the main bedroom with bedding and a storage chest. Pineapple detailing at the top of each post on the four-poster bed subtly offers a Caribbean feel.
The conversion of this Victorian terrace in west London was a collaborative effort between Thomas Croft Architects, John Cullen Lighting and designer Sarah Delaney. In the main bedroom, an exotic hand-painted De Gournay wallpaper depicting oriental birds amid trees and flowers on a silver background is combined with panelling salvaged from another local house refurbishment.

Having moved from a Georgian manor, Clare Agnew reworked the conversion of a 300-year-old barn in Norfolk to create a secluded home for her family, in which the inside works in harmony with the garden and the marshland beyond.
The brief for this Paris bedroom was suitably intangible: she asked to be transported into another world. For decorator Jorge Estevez, who specialises in painting, it was vital his decorations were subtle so she wouldn’t tire of them, and also that there was ‘a feeling of the walls having been there before her’. The result is blissfully peaceful: in the bedroom, rough, eggshell-grey walls are painted with the most delicate of details to provide interest, and barely there friezes frame the doorway. The bedhead was made from an old door found in Brussels.
This country-style bedroom features a pretty bed canopy in green and white, setting the colour scheme for the space. A pair of Sixties China table lamps and a collection of framed William Blake prints on the walls add character.
Creating a coastal bedroom design is simple, too. Sailing away to dreamland awaits you when you make your bed with a soft blue nautical striped comforter or scalloped navy duvet cover that brings about visions of the gentle ocean waves. Decorating the floor with the luxury shag rugs we offer in neutral hues accentuates the softness of your dorm room’s design. Placing storage racks, closet organizers and canvas storage bins around your dorm room creates plenty of organization and storage options to help you keep everything where it needs to go.
During the initial design stages we find it interesting to focus on one key piece and use its colours, look and feel as a starting point for inspiration – this could be anything from a statement painting to an antique rug. Image credit

The small white bedroom on the second floor of this Victorian terrace house had been painted a rather gloomy blue. To make the most of the light, newlyweds Sophie and Dan opted to repaint the room with Dulux’s ‘Pure Brilliant White’ while lemon yellow accents bring further warmth to the room. The divan bed is furnished with a buttoned ‘Bekkestua’ headboard from Ikea and the cane mirror hung over the bed was bought on a trip to Saffron Walden.
Roses sit prettily on the bedside table of interior designer Louise Jones’ bedroom. The vertical lines of a bookcase – holding plenty of bedtime reading material – are echoed by the striped wallpaper.
Calling all small space dwellers! Big city apartments, vintage home layouts, and modern space downsizing all call for design that expands the possibilities of small. If you need a bedroom makeover but don’t think you have enough bedroom to work with, you’re in the right place. We’ve got some lovely small bedroom ideas to prove small spaces can be stylish.
This modern bedroom styled by Gabby Deeming was inspired by traditional Japanese rooms with Shoji screens and includes a simple yet elegant futon bed on a platform base from Futon Company. Simple sliding screens have been constructed with pine batons and papered with ‘Sansui’ wallpaper from Zoffany, a pattern of soft mountains. A modern ensuite bathroom houses C P Hart’s ‘Stand’ bath, which is propped on a steel frame.
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 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.
Decorating a little girl’s room has never been more fun! With patterned bedspreads and brightly colored walls, here are our tips for creating the perfect room fit for the little princess in your home.
If you’re in the market for a new bed, consider a bed with drawers underneath for extra storage. If space is so limited that drawers may not open easily, use decorative bins under your bed for additional storage. We love milk crates and other woven baskets that hold up well and look great doing it.
If you are going to opt for minimalism in only one room in your house, that room should be the bedroom. No distractions for relaxation and a perfect nights sleep. Although this white bedroom scheme is definitely minimalist, I like the fact it has warmth due to the herringbone floor and interest added with the contemporary four poster. The simple bedding looks luxurious too and I would be more than happy to take a nap between those sheets. Image credit
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.’
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 retreat perfect for entertaining.
Born in America, interior designer Henri Fitzwilliam-Lay started her working life in New York, cutting her visual teeth as a fashion stylist on Elle magazine, before becoming art director for some of Manhattan’s most celebrated retailers, including Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdale’s. Her stylist’s eye has remained one of her undoubted assets, giving her the confidence to compose sophisticated medleys of pattern, colour and texture. ‘In this house, we definitely went maximalist,’ she says. ‘We used layer upon layer.’ The wallpapers are ‘Clouds Sonic’ by Aimée Wilder and ‘Tile’ by Cole & Son, while the ‘Libra’ zodiac cushion is from Jonathan Adler.
