I love this bedroom – it was one of the first I designed and the brief was to create an elegant and serene sanctuary. The soft Cornforth White walls combined with the decadent wallpaper by Tapet Café really do complement one another and create a very soothing mood. The Vogue print adds the perfect ‘pop’ of colour and the large mirror reflects a lot of light into the space. The chandelier by Verner Panton completes the look and adds decadence. Image credit
Coral, turquoise and cream white…all the favorite colors for teens, and they go with each other so well and turn out to be so beautiful in this bedroom. The turquoise patterned wallpaper gives more fresh look and the window seat…Love all these without a reason! via House of Turquoise.
for instance i hate how some of the beds are so boring and look so dull and quite frankly UNCOMFORTABLE.. they look like dog beds.. teens want a big fluffy bed thats extremely comfortable !! and looks it to!!!
All the furniture in this bedroom at Soho Farmhouse is wooden, including the panelling of the sink in the ensuite glimpsed through the doorway. This was designed to capture the Upstate New York cabin feeling.
If pink and purple don’t suit your child, look for girl’s room paint ideas that incorporate neutral hues or shades of blue. Gray wallpaper provides a blank canvas in this shared kid’s bedroom, allowing blue painted bunk beds and orange bedding to take center stage.
A contemporary blue wall paint, loud print bedding and some favourite records hung on the walls: it doesn’t take much to create a bedroom for a young teenager. You can throw the bike in too if you’re feeling generous!
I love the simplicity in design for this bedroom. It has ample amounts of floor to ceiling storage behind the bed, giving the rest of the room lots of free space. Having the furniture and storage the same colour as the walls makes the room look bigger. Bedrooms should be clutter free as it helps us relax and de-stress, this room achieves a perfectly calm space!
Bedroom ideas? We’ve got them all. Whether you live in a grand country pile or a tiny flat, the House & Garden archive is your one-stop-shop for bedroom design and bedroom decorating ideas from the world’s best interior designers (take a look at our Top 100 if you want to know who they are). Redesigning your bedroom doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul. Sometimes a tweak, like new bedding or lighting hanging pictures or a new headboard, can make a dramatic difference. So take a look at these easy-to-steal bedroom decorating ideas…
Even if your bedroom is small, it’s still possible to create an interesting space. This is why I love this image, as the headboard on the bed is unique and fun, and creates a real focal point. It’s a DIY project that simply needs some panels of wood and a jigsaw to cut the shape. I love how they’ve added washi tape and some images to it – meaning you can add personality, and can easily change these as the mood takes you. They’ve tied the look together subtly with the neon pink touches, but keeping the rest of the colour palette simple. Image credit
Touches of blue introduce colour and pattern in the main bedroom of a divine Provençal house by Andrzej Zarzycki. These include the painted woodwork, patchwork bed cover and large painting by Sarah Pickstone.
The main bedroom and en suite in this barn conversion in Kent follows a calm-inducing minimalist scheme. The walls of both rooms have been painted with Little Greene’s ‘French Grey Pale’. Rustic touches such as the cow skin rug, wooden stool and exposed brick wall add textural interest to the overall look.
I have always been very fond of vintage style – purely because of the character it brings to the room. What I love most about this room is first of all the white floor – very Scandinavian, the fireplace, the bed and last but not least; the floral bedding and curtains – adding life to the room. I can be here all day long, only thing that’s missing are French doors that open out to a cute balcony! Image credit
If you don’t have room for a four-poster bed then a pelmet like this one by Paolo Moschino can be a creative alternative. The linen curtains are made from ‘Nyvelle Oyster’ by Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam. The clean, straight lines and border of blue stands out against the dark walls.
There is a time in every girl’s life where there’s no harm in being a little OTT. Bright pink French-style furniture, upholstered button-back bed, feathers, sheep-skin, chandeliers… Pourquoi pas for the little princess?!

The owners of this Somerset country house had not anticipated taking on such a large project, but their careful renovation enhanced by modern decorative touches has resulted in a smart and comfortable forever home. This white attic bedroom has a sunny feel thanks to a bright yellow patterned throw and matching cushions. A storage chest with a cute duck design sits at the foot of the bed – perfect for adding character to a bedroom or for a kid’s room.
wow, thanks for this post. I like the one with the stairs. It’s almost the same picture I have in mind years ago but never given a chance to have it in real picture. Anyway, happy to drop by and see your posts.
Tiny bedrooms don’t need to be boring bedrooms. Stick to a two-tone scheme (in this case, pink and white), streamline with clever storage and make a design feature with essential items, like books. A few well-chosen necessities in bold prints (throws, cushions, etc) will add some personality.
Okay, these bedrooms are nice and all but who really has rooms with a balcony and a full glass window wall and a giant skylight in their room? Not the average family. So maybe you should make more pratical ideas. You would have been of more help to the other people who also commented agreeing with me. And anyways most of these ideas were no where near anything that i’d think would be a teenage girl’s room. Most of them look like like lifeless hospital rooms. Just saying.

Here is a teenage bedroom in pink and blue. The large window is designed to accommodate a work desk for the child. The large pink sofa looks extremely cosy and inviting. The chandelier is another attractive feature in this room. The choice of subtle colours is an extension of the child’s personality.
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.
The easiest way to incorporate a big mirror to your space? Find a body-length mirror and lean it up against the wall. No holes needed. Though, you’ll want to secure it with wall tacky for peace of mind.
