Be bold with pattern mixing in a little girl’s bedroom accessories to create a space with youthful energy. Like in other rooms, keep scale in mind and mix large, small, and medium-scale patterns to achieve balance. In a shared bedroom, repeat the same patterns from bed to bed and create a symmetrical setup.

Heidi Lightfoot and Steve Gibbons wanted a mid-century house and found this 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 factory. This neutral spare room is brightened up with the addition of prints and a lively geometric blanket.

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.
As tween girls become full-fledged teenagers, it’s likely they’ll be using their bedrooms for overnight fun with friends. Add drama and ambiance for nighttime use with vintage wall sconces. Often priced much lower than chandeliers, sconces are installed directly to walls and may need to be rewired prior to installation. To ensure safety, most interior designers recommend dropping off vintage sconces at local lamp repair shops where fixtures can be brought up to code for as little as $25.

Your daughter’s nightly homework assignments will grow right along with her. Every school-age child needs a desk for study time. The simple desk fronted by a large bulletin board shown here is the perfect spot to study. But what really makes this room special is the adorable wall décor – and it’s a snap to duplicate. Just fill in the space over the headboard with a colorful and wonderfully patterned wallpaper. It’s an easy DIY, and you’ll probably only need one roll of paper.
Many little girl’s bedroom themes can 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.
well I was looking for ideas for a small room and how everything will fit into it, and I stumble on this website. I can now breathe a breath of fresh air cause I found several that I love. And the colour skim are amazing. Thanks much! Well appreciated.
In this guest bedroom, I wanted to create a fresh, but calm atmosphere. I’m a big believer that “less is more”, so I kept the styling to the minimum. White walls and crisp black and white bed linen give an airy feel to the room. The photos on top of the bed add a splash of colour that I believe is needed in every room. Yet the colours are not too vibrant to break the tranquil atmosphere. Colour and wooden details soften the overall look and make the room more inviting. All in all, it’s a bedroom in very Scandinavian style: minimalist and relaxed, made for living. Image credit

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.
Give children’s rooms a grown up feel with a chic feature wall. In this scheme, a pink flock wallpaper injects instant glamour to the look. It’s teamed with a white day bed, which doubles up as a sofa – ideal for smaller schemes. Pink accents, like the rug and beanbag, mirror the wallpaper, while storage boxes are tucked under the bed, filled with toys and other bits.
