A twin attic bedroom has cosy bedding in Emma Burns’ former stables that she has converted into a weekend retreat. She has put into practice the principles that now guide her professional work as a designer at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler.
A colorful polka-dot theme gets a sophisticated update with splashes of neutral brown. The cheery spots pop up on the bedding and walls (create a similar look with wall decals). Add in a few chocolate-brown elements, such as throw pillows, and the room takes on a more mature look, perfect for girls growing into adolescence.
Wall stickers are a great way to add a little personality to a child’s bedroom; they are also by no means permanent so once your child outgrows this charming woodland tea party theme it’s easy and inexpensive to make changes, without damaging walls.
Blogger Rachel Denbow’s kids’ room is proof that you don’t need matching beds or bedding in a shared room. An eclectic mix of furniture (particularly when as eye-catching as this large display board) can be equally as stylish.
The owner loves the spare aesthetic of the bamboo. ‘It is not overwhelming, just a very simple and pure design, not trying to impress, nestled in the leaves, just hanging on the cliff.’ The house was designed by Veere Grenney.

For grown-ups a bedroom is a place of tranquillity and calm. But do young children have the same needs? A bedroom is their space – a chance to distill their rainbow coloured personality into a single (usually fairly small) room. And children come with a lot of stuff – which usually means they’re living in the aftermath of a tornado of toys. Organisation is key – it’s all about creating order from the chaos without becoming a control freak. Which is why I love bedrooms with clever, inventive storage. The trick is to balance your desire for organisation with plenty of bright, colourful, child-friendly fun. Beds with built-in storage, slim-line desks and bookshelves are all great ways to use every scrap of space as efficiently as possible. The clever furniture and pops of colour in this photo are neat enough to please the grown-ups whilst still being perfect for the kids. Image Credit

It’s rare for interior designers to act as their own clients, but that’s how Karen Howes decided to tackle the refurbishment of a run-down basement flat of a purpose-built 1901 London block. She briefed the team at Taylor Howes Designs, leaving the property as a building site while she went on a three-week trip to China and returned to find it finished. In the spare bedroom, she opted for a ‘Kazak’ roman blind by Tissus d’Hélène the blues of which tie into the bedroom’s artwork and contrasts with the orange desk chair, colours which run throughout the home.
bedrooms should reflect her tastes and style with a youthful yet more sophisticated look and need to be very stylish, modern, fashionable and vibrant with energy. If it is possible, you can get your teenager involved in the …
A bedroom always reflects the personality of the occupant. The things that describe your personality the most is the wall colours, the bedroom suit and the decoration. ‘One’s own bedroom’ is the favourite corner of the room during the growing years.

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.

HGTV fan lolabboutique ditched the usual little girl decor and created an antique, cottage-style bedroom that can easily work for all ages. To add a personalized and playful touch to any little girl’s bedroom, find unique representations of the letters that spell her name or her first initial. To mirror the framed L-O-L-A letters in this space, find antique wooden frames, paint them white and distress the edges for a simple weathered look. Print letters in various fonts on a manila background and add to the frame.
Pale pink chiffon curtains and Bambi print bedding and accessories will appeal to the girliest of little girls, but combining these with granite grey panelled walls ensures the scheme is not too sacharine for adult aesthetic sensibilities.
