I all honesty, I don’t see how this is supposed to help make the most out of a small room. First of all, they just look like normal bedrooms. And anyay, I guess it’s not what I googled for. The reason I was looking for a post on how to maximize on small room space is because right now my bedroom is also my living room is also my office. I live in NY and I am SURE I am not the only person with this sort of living arrangement. Real estate costs. And quite frankly we are paying for every cubic inch of space in a room here in the city, meaning loft beds and over head storage and really anything and everything to maximize on space and provide order to a multi-purpose room. I don’t need to make my small space LOOK bigger. For what? I need it to feel functionally bigger, since I can’t actually have it bigger.
Warm gray walls serve as a blank canvas to accommodate bright furniture and accessories in this little girl’s bedroom. A whimsy upholstered kid’s headboard mimics the shape of a house, and a yellow footboard and mirror add bright color. A hopscotch rug ties the room’s colors together while also providing a fun game to play.
In the main bedroom in Hannah Cecil Gurney’s London flat has hand-painted silk cushions and a Burmese lamp pick up on the green in the ‘Badminton’ wallpaper by de Gournay, the wallpaper company her father founded in 1986.
If you’re lucky enough to have a spare bedroom or un-tapped attic space, turn it into a playroom. Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada – French and Mexican respectively – have done this in their Brussels family home, which they share with their two sons, Antoine and Olivier. The couple design modern furniture and accessories that are made using traditional techniques by craftsman in Mexico for sale through their design company Casamidy. We love how the couple isn’t afraid to use a magenta hue on the shelves in a space designed for boys.
Enjoyed looking at the photos. Very inspiring. I like how you featured different colors – not just pink. I designed a fun tween retreat for the Spring Show in Charlotte that was packed with some fun ideas…(pardon me while i toot my own horn:-))
Celebrated interior decorator Nicky Haslam opens the doors to his own west-London apartment, which is an elegantly playful showcase for his masterful use of scale and dramatic details, and his signature mix of the fake and the fabulous. Painted a rich dark brown, the canopy in the bedroom was inspired by a Cecil Beaton drawing. Nicky brought the bed with him from his former flat and found the table lamps in a second-hand shop.
We love this. The dark purple and grey colour scheme, industrial-style light fixture (another example of the bedside light being hung from above, rather than placed on a bedside table) and dappled feature wall all combine to create a beautifully moody aesthetic.
The blind and headboard have been made in a matching fabric – a cost-effective trick for adding a punch of pattern to a bedroom. The blind is prettily trimmed in Samuel & Sons pom-poms. A window sill has been turned in to a reading nook with a padded cushion.
I love all of these diy ideas an will be using as many in my daughters room – she is 11 an wants a teen room- is we live in a single wide trailer- her room is extremely small- I have no idea what to do to make it cool looking an give the wow effect – trying to figure out what colors to paint it so it doesn’t look smaller but give the effect of bigger- walls are Sheetrocked thankfully- she has very small closet an one very wide window– if u or anyone has an ideas or pictures it would be greatly appreciated by both of us–!!! Thank u, Brenda in VT
Even though not all of the design ideas have a particular theme, the decorating elements are connected, creating interiors that are both functional and stylish. See below, and also be sure to read 20 Fun and Cool Teen Bedroom Ideas.
A foundation of sleek white offers a modern look for this girl’s room, while vivid sherbet green and lipstick pink add youthful personality. While a two-color scheme is simple, sometimes adding a third color can make a kid’s room sing. This also lets you incorporate a favorite, of-the-moment color. In this girl’s bedroom idea, bedding with the room’s pink and green scheme features a bit of blue, which also makes a splash on the storage boxes atop the dresser.
Many little girl’s bedroom themes can be loud or trendy rather than timeless. If you’d rather avoid them, look for more subtle ways to incorporate a child’s interests or hobbies. For a ballet enthusiast, dress the room in shades of pink, plenty of ruffles, and a few nods to her passion, such as a display of tutus and a piece of art, rather than a whole ballet-slipper bedding set and suite of accessories.

This girl’s room has a cute bespoke headboard to match the shape of the round bed, studded with mismatched floral buttons for a fun, girly look. Pile high pillows in bright shades and different shapes.
Furniture has been kept to a minimum in the small spare bedroom of interior designer Sarah Chamber’s Victorian terraced house in South London. Lack of space means furniture has been kept to a minimum, with interest added instead by a rich autumnal colour scheme that contrasts brown walls with red accents. This is an easy idea to apply to any small room where space for objects is at a premium. Instead transform the mood of your space using the walls and upholstered furniture as your canvas.

Made famous by the Rothschild family, the hotels Les Fermes de Marie, L’Hotel Mont-Blanc and The Lodge Park – were built by a local family in Haute-Savoie. Jean Louis Sibuet converted the bones of each hotel, and his business partner, Jocelyne, did the interior design. ‘We started with an oppurtunity in a particular place and time, says Jocelyne, ‘when we find somewhere we find it hard to walk away’. The Sibuet’s latest Provencal hotel is Domaine de la Baume, where each room has its own eclectic style including this bedroom that imbues character with yellow Pierre Frey wallpaper.

In this Paris flat, London-based designer Tara Craig has used a strong, simple palette with devastating effect.
