Bedrooms should calming and seductive spaces, and this bedroom ticks both those boxes. It has a calming, neutral pallet that is kept interesting through a mix of textures – wooden floors and ceiling, the white-painted brick wall, a sisal rug, a glamorous fur throw, and the marble bedside table. The painted black wall adds another layer of luxury and glamour to this space, but the large, simple artwork keeps it from being too dark. Interest to this monotone colour scheme is also brought in through the architectural style of lighting, and the pattern in the cushions. All in all a perfect combination! Image credit
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.
If you have young daughters sharing a bedroom, give each a say in how that room is decorated, but be prepared to step in as the final word. Some children like to personalize their section of the room; others like to match. Just be sure that each girl has an area to store her favorite possessions, and there is enough desk space for both to do homework at the same time. This adorable space from Finnian’s Moon Interiors uses a peaceful palette of green, blue, and soft gray.
The interior of this eco ‘dwelle-ing’ is flooded with natural light thanks to skylights, glass doors and windows. The effect is intensified in this garden room by white walls and a neutral colour palette (see our white room ideas and how to use white paint). Enough space is created on a mezzanine level for a bedroom and workspace, with a kitchen underneath.
Kids love to climb up into a raised bed but this option will also create extra storage space underneath or, as in this case, a little play area, decorated here with a highly textured rug and sweet wallsticker.
The guest bedroom in Argentinian architect Mario Connio’s Andalucian farmhouse once housed a bread oven. Now it is painted a beautiful cornflower blue that enhances the relaxed Mediterranean feel of the room.
In this glamorous bedroom at Soho House Berlin, furniture is scaled up for the vast rooms. (note the unusually tall headboard.) Designer Susie Atkinson chose bold colours: burgundy and Dorothy Draper-inspired turquoise.
Investing in some bedroom wall art? Use the colours in the painting as the starting point for a decorating theme. Simply get some paint charts and fabric swatches, and match the colours you love in the picture.
Passing down through inheritance for nearly 400 years, Holker Hall has a rich history resulting in an interior that combines comfort with charm. In one of the guest rooms, a classic Colefax and Fowler fabric is used on the day bed, footboard and canopy.
Colourful notes in the main bedroom of artist and designer Bridie Hall’s home include a painting by Mary Fedden and an orange bedcover, made by Bridie. The moody grey paint is ‘Mercury’ by Fired Earth.
When decorating a tween girl’s room, don’t be afraid to pack it with pattern. Introduce different prints by layering patterns similar in color yet different in scale. An excellent rule of thumb is to stick with one large-, one medium- and one small-scale pattern. This will ensure the layered look appears balanced rather than busy.
We are in the process of transforming our little one’s nursery into her big girl’s room. I’m going for a Scandinavian style with a touch of colour just like the one in this picture. The ingredients to achieve the perfect kids’s Nordic style room should include geometric patterns – you can use them in items of bedding or storage like boxes and bags. Cool prints to hang on the wall using washi tape. Picture Shelves are great for displaying art, books or small toys/decorative accessories. Adopt a minimal colour palette: black, white and one or two pastel colours. Finally, introduce a Charles Ray Eames table and chairs and an old fashioned looking white metal bed. A must to achieve the perfect Scandinavian look! Image Credit

The spare bedroom of interior designer Diana Sieff’s home (a converted chapel in Oxfordshire) has a vintage chic look, with a trio Lebanese plates hanging on the wall. ‘Isfahan’ porcelain plates by OKA, £179 for a set of four, would create a similar look.
