This may seem obvious, but ditch the king-size (or even queen) bed and use space-saving furniture. If storage space is an issue, under-bed storage containers such as this one can free up a lot of space.
The interior designer behind this West London home was Ebba Thott. In the spare room a steel four poster bed, a modern take on a timeless classic, sits comfortably alongside a custom-coloured blue and white chintz by Marthe Armitage. The bedcover is by Holland & Sherry through Lelièvre in Paris.
Two headboards? Why not? We love the idea of reusing some reclaimed wood to make a headboard (see how to make one out of old doors here) and then placing another headboard in a different material in front of it (this one is from Zara Home). Very original.
a ladder and slide in the room that goes up into a little step up, play room. This is a bedroom or playroom for little kids if you take the pink away it could be for boys and girls room. This is some brilliant designing! Love it perfect for a little girl
Maximising light and space was essential to show the owner’s post-war art and sleek French art deco furniture to their best advantage in this elegant Pimlico flat. In the bedroom nineteenth-century photographs bought from Portobello Market hang above the bed, while built in bookshelves flank the windows.
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.
The late Lady Hindlip, the designer owner of this home, was described as a ‘serial mover’. This Fifties property – her nineteenth home – was enthusiastically created into the perfect London pied-à-terre with a quintessentially English feel. The rug in the main bedroom of this is from Talisman. Botanical prints hang on the wall, which is covered with a striped wallpaper by Colefax and Fowler.
A spare bedroom with wooden furniture and a window seat in the terrace house of Lady Wakefield. The beautiful Georgian window – found in a junk shop on the King’s Road – was added in 1998 by the owners.
This bedroom in Shoreditch House by Soho House is decorated in a neutral and stylish scheme with red features. Panelling makes the space cosy; painted in light grey, it doesn’t shrink the already small space.
Thank you for your comment, I apologise but I can’t seem to see the princess castle printed blinds in the our article, however the children’s bed with curtains is by petitevintageinteriors.com.au so you may still be able to find this on their site.
The gentle slope of the ceiling in this room in a water’s-edge cabin at Soho Farmhouse gives the space plenty of character despite the neutral decor. The metal bed frame is the only piece of non-wooden furniture, adding another texture to the room.
This child’s room showcases youthful sophistication for growing girls. Offset from the bedroom, the lavender playroom provides plenty of space for playing games and entertaining friends. The lime linen settee is the perfect place to read a book while enjoying the sweeping outdoor views. By creating a clear between the bedroom and playroom, both rooms have a clear and defined purpose.

In this converted Cotswolds barn, interior designer Pippa Paton has combined modern design with natural materials to create a minimalist haven that maintains its rural identity. This bedroom, which is flooded with light at the top of the barn, is subtly decorated with children in mind. Plain white walls are accented with brightly coloured accessories and soft, comfortable low seating.
Tongue-and-groove panelling adds New England-style charm to the spare room (in what used to be the butler’s pantry) of this 1830s London house restored to its original style by interior designer Max Rollitt. The touch of a chair used in place of a traditional nightstand is particularly charming.
