Using a chic modernist pallet of bold colours creates a light and inviting bedroom scene. The walls are covered in ‘Weathered Walls’ by Maya Romanoff at Pierre Frey with a bold patterned curtain from ‘Jardin d’Osier’ silk at Hermès. The mirror from The Conran Shop creates an added depth to the room, and makeshift bedside storage.
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.
A pop-up play tent or tee-pee is an adorable – not to mention fun – addition to a kids’ room. Take this idea from kids’ wallpaper and fabric specialists Hibou Home and make your own with fabric and string.
We’re not suggesting you take your bedroom outdoors (our climate’s not quite reliable enough!) but we do suggest you take inspiration from this colour scheme of mustard yellow and ecru, the stylish bed and linen featuring pastoral scenes and the accessories: wicker baskets used as a bedside table and battered vintage suitcases for further storage.
This bedroom is striking to me. It surprises you…such a delicate balance of masculine and feminine. You can’t help but to appreciate the subtle design elements reflected within the context of this modern Asian-inspired scale and colour scheme ~ the mysteriousness of the asymmetrical bookcase, the delicateness in how the objects are placed, and the luxurious feel the dark-on-light furniture gives. I get a sense of warmth but refreshed at the same time. Finally, the artwork chosen seals the sentiment of this overall design composition. Simply put, I love it. Image credit
Designer Guy Goodfellow has made the window a feature in this manor-house bedroom in Devon. Its casement is painted in Rose of Jericho’s ‘Mountain Green’, framed by thick linen curtains and with a smart seat underneath. The ceiling is painted with floral motifs, giving the appearance of pargeting. To replicate these murals, try the painter Dawn Reader.
as a 15 year old. i would say a lot of these rooms look like they were designed by some 40 year old women who loves photography, and the outdoors and lives in uptown new jersey. there pathetic. some of them are cute for maybe 10 year olds but they look way to modern and boring.
Originally, Claire intended to do the decoration of the house herself. ‘Rather naively, I thought it would be enjoyable. To begin, I went to a Graham & Green warehouse sale somewhere on the A40. It was a complete bun fight and I felt totally overwhelmed. I came back with one armchair that now lives in the playroom and said to Dom, We are going to need help.’
If your little girl has a knack for geography, consider girl’s bedroom wallpaper that has an educational flair. In this globetrotter’s room, a map of the world takes up the entire accent wall. Here, she can plan her next big adventure or be inspired to pick up a few library books on the eastern hemisphere. Plan the bedding and textiles around the colors found in the global designs.
Tweens are notorious for being a fan of one thing one week to totally flipping and loving something else the next. Shelving and under-bed storage leave room for them to store things until they’re cool again.
Add bold, summery textiles to a light filled room and you’re guaranteed a fresh, summer feeling all year around. We love the hanging lampshades in this room; even without bulbs they make a great feature.

Or, opt for a hollywood-style frame that supports the bottom of the bed and extends no further than the perimeter of the mattress. You can decorate the space above the bed with art, or add a headboard later.
I liked alot of the room designs you have here but I think most of them 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!
In the main bedroom of this vicarage in Hampshire, interior designer Max Rollitt has customised an antique four-poster bed found at auction, with a pretty scalloped frame. The wallpaper is ‘Adams Eden’ by Lewis & Wood.
There’s a few things that are key to how you feel when you walk into your bedroom – mainly it comes down to floors, walls, furniture and decoration. If you’re renting you may not be able to touch the floors or walls and will have to work with what you have. If it’s your own house however, you may be wondering which colour to paint the walls so they go with your floors, or so you can make a small bedroom appear bigger. Pay attention to these elements in the photos.
I really like these rooms I’m trying to design my daughters room because we are moving soon and i think the book shelfs are a great idea to store small things and big things without taking up space so thanks!!!!!
Designer Ebba Thott has kept a simple elegant feel in this London bedroom. With the problem of a large window at the end of the space, she has created a sense of entrance and drama through symmetry – placing the bed, which is flanked by two stylish mid-century wooden nightstands, directly in the middle of the room; and using a blind that is dramatic in its scale, but simple in its design. Pictures stacked on the floor rather than hung give a clean, relaxed feel.
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.
It doesn’t take much to set an exotic style, so a small room is perfect for a global look like the Moroccan showstopper here. Just three elements – the silver pendants, the silver pouf, and the fantastic bed – are all it takes. If none of those are within your reach, consider adding an exotic throw pillow or two to your bed.
Yeah, I also got a tip, too; When trying to create to perfect living space, think about what hobbies and intrests you love, this can help you! –And also pick your favourite colour(s) to match together a harmony and
