In this children’s bedroom in Paris – its elegance quite unlike any other child’s bedroom – the walls are adorned with painted medallions hanging on beaded strings. Each medallion contains a motif, a religious icon or mythical creature, which ‘watch over’ the children as they sleep. The medallions are by Jorge Estevez – who claims he is a decorator, and not an artist.
Creating a cosy play area in the corner of the room is easy. All that’s needed is a heavy pile rug and plenty of cushions – we love the mix of neutrals and brights here. The modular shelving and lighting further delineate the area from the rest of the room.
A charcoal grey paint scheme may not be the first thing that springs to mind when decorating a kids’ room but with accents of yellow and blue and some age-appropriate furniture (this three bed bunk-bed is fantastic) little boys will love it. Also note the inbuilt pockets in the curtains: a sweet way to provide extra storage don’t you think?

Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons own this modern, colourful Thirties house in rural Hertfordshire. Built in 1936 by the renowned public sector architect Mary Medd, Sewell’s Orchard was apparently unpopular with the locals at the time, who likened its monopitch roof and pared-back design to that of a canning factory. This is not a view shared by Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons, however, who have lived in and loved the daring modernist property for the past few years.

A bespoke bed can add so much character to a room. This clever design begins as a cot but can become a small bed. Make it the star attraction with a feature mirror hung above it, bold bedding and a frame of twinkling fairy lights.
Even a small space can have an airy, open vibe when your palette is mostly white with just one cheery accent color. Notice how easy it is to mix patterns when they share the same two colors; the striped rug, small floral comforter, and larger floral sheets don’t feel busy or overwhelming even though the room is very small.
so im a 17 year old teenage girl and only the last room looks remotly livable in. no personal aspects to any of them just random decorative ornaments like numbers (i spotted a 10 and a 5). and as a teenage girl i do not have a buget to build custom long closet all around my room, nor do i have a balcony.
Decoration in a bedroom boils down to a few key elements: pick a theme, add interesting accents and a dash of contrast. In this case, the contrast comes from the more masculine chrome touches and button-detail cushion.
Looking for modern bedroom ideas? Try smart schemes in black and white, warmed by the tones of wood, copper and leather. A giant knit throw (this one’s £149, from The Conran Shop) adds a touch of the eccentric.
The addition of a large basement extension to this Edwardian house freed up space on the upper floors for bright and capacious rooms, and a more fluid layout ideal for family living. Owners Dominic and Claire chose design duo Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock to decorate the home.
Folksy textiles look fantastic when added to an otherwise simple scheme. The eclectic display of ornaments on a shelf above the bed fits with the theme and looks great – just ensure you hang it high enough so you don’t hit your head every morning!
The key to creating a cosy space? Three words: layering, layering, layering. Whether it’s pattern, colour or texture (all three is even better) more is more. To keep it from looking messy, make sure to repeat colours throughout the room and ensure there’s plenty of solid colour to break up the scheme.
Even at a young age, kids accumulate countless books and toys. Use them to add colour to the room by displaying them on a stylish bookcase or in a glass fronted cabinet. Marcus Peel for 1st-option.com

This small bedroom has dark green walls in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Olive’ paint. The single divan bed base is furnished with a ‘Casati’ headboard from Ensemblier London upholstered in ‘Faded Monochrome Teal Roses’ from Bennison. A limed wood antique commode is used as a bedside table, topped with a pile of books and simple glass vase filled with fresh flowers.
‘He took time to consider each space and how the light falls at different times of day, making every angle, aperture and window a picture in itself. He created contemporary interiors that managed to contrast with and yet enhance the ancient setting.’ Here a Le Corbusier chair sits in harmonious contrasts to its medieval surroundings.
Does your child have a favourite book or television character that you’re considering including in a design scheme? Bedding is the clever option as it doesn’t involve too much commitment (and we all now how fickle kids can be). We love the creative use of paint on the walls which works with the theme now but could also be adapted later.
Despite her classical aesthetic, Gytha has incorporated more modern touches in the flat. She opted against cornicing in favour of a cleaner finish and enhanced the New York loft effect by painting all the window frames dark brown.
all these rooms are SUPER cool. Awesome creativity! But next time, it’d be great if maybe you guys could design a room thats, well, more affordable looking/ realistic. I mean, c’mon, we’re teenagers who dont really have THAT much extra cash on hand to use on hand haha. And maybe ‘simpler’ room sizes. The loft one is super cool, but its not like everyone has a loft in their room. . . . awesome ideas though!
This Victorian flat was designed by duo Lambert & Thurnherr who brought their international flavor to the space, creating a home that is both comfortable and individual. Blue and white fabrics give this bedroom a fresh feel.

Breaking away from traditional girl colors, this room has a modern vibe with its shades of orange — ranging from sherbet to pumpkin — and shocks of electric blue. Girl appeal is added with floral prints, which are graphic rather than flowery, keeping with modern design.
Patterns are a recurring theme in Tarquin and Isobel Bilgen’s house; they beautifully match the beams that line the wall in their bedroom. Joss Graham is a good port of call for unusual fabrics; their embroidered horse cover from Uzbekistan (£2,800) dates from about 1900 and would work well as a bedhead. Similarly, an 18th-century French quilt from Katharine Pole (£1,850) is a close match to the Bilgen’s bedcover, made with fabric from Bennison.
What a fantastic article! Really glad I found this, so many excellent ideas and tips when renovating your bedroom. We spend so much time in our bedroom that it`s important we make it a relaxing and enjoyable room to be in.
Hi Gianna! So glad you found inspiration in this post! This is a round up post, meaning we did not create the projects, but found them on the internet and put them all in one convenient place for our viewers!
I love a crisp, clean, modern bedroom like this one from NylonPinksy. I love to switch up an ‘expected’ design of a space, with something unexpected like using two different lamps on the nightstands (as in this photo).
Bedrooms should be tranquil and relaxing! When I redecorated mine, I chose a very pale grey wall colour with matching bed linen and curtains! I hung my floor-length curtains high up on the wall, and to the sides of the window frames to create the illusion of height and larger windows. This maximises the light coming in to the room, and together with the white painted wooden floor, gives the room a calm and airy feel. I kept the decor fuss free, just adding different patterned textiles in the same colours for some visual interest, and warmed up the look by adding some copper accessories. A light chain and some industrial style cage lights either side of the bed gives a cosy glow at night and my bedtime reading supply (interior magazines) are kept handy by the bed and doubles up as a bedside table!

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.
To vary solid-color walls, try this easy, do-it-yourself project. Mark out different sizes of squares on the wall with painter’s tape. Then fill in the shapes with three to four different colors. Here, bold raspberry, tangy orange, and sweet pink squares spruce up a peach background.
