‘My client’s bedroom is on the first floor, in what originally would have been the grand drawing room. The windows are lovely and big; they are the key to its appeal. I like the architecture to do the talking, so rather than obscure the windows with curtains, I’ve added plain bottom-up blinds. I have a weekness for pink, so I enjoyed including my client’s artwork… But neon is my favourite, hence the tube light from Mr Resistor,’ explains designer Harriet Anstruther of her client’s home in Chelsea, London.
More than a decade after inheriting their Perthshire estate, James and Caroline Inchyra have realised its full potential, turning it in to a bustling family home. Chintz curtains with an elaborate pelmet feature in this sunny bedroom. Take a look around the rest of the house here.
Silver, gold and bronze touches in the bedroom of one of Sarah Stewart-Smith’s daughters at their family home in Herefordshire. Wooden floors enhance the country-house feel and a cosy bedthrow adds warmth. Beams were exposed after Sarah discovered them behind plaster boarding in the charming 1786 cottage she now calls home.
This bedroom in Ugbrooke Park was used by the Cardinal Weld (father of the wife of the 7th Lord Clifford) when he visited the house, thus his portrait and travelling trunk remain in the room. The walls of the Cardinal’s Room are covered in ‘Meredith’ in red by Nina Campbell for Osborne & Little, which is also used on the canopy and headboard.
Create a sweet work station for reading or drawing with a small desk and chair and floor lamp. Upcycle a standard white MDF desk with some paint and wallstickers, or take the easier option and choose this one from online children’s store Vertbaudet.
Add an additional surround to your headboard, painted in a contrasting colour to further frame your bed. We particular love the addtion of the pictures – hung off centre, they are far more interesting.
This newbuild country house is a triumph of teamwork, with architects and designers collaborating to create the owner’s perfect home. The West Country location combines rural peace, privacy and views across fields and woodland with the convenient proximity of a main road; the architecture is a gentle mix of classical and vernacular charm; and the interior decoration matches furnishings from a previous house with new additions, including some specially commissioned pieces.
Children’s bedrooms should be fun, bold and playful. As a designer, I love to let my imagination run wild when working with children’s bedrooms. With a little inventiveness you can create the most wonderful spaces with unusual paint effects and bespoke joinery. Use MDF to create a built in bed in the shape of a house or teepee, section off a corner for a reading area in the shape of a castle or make the most of a tall ceiling with a mezzanine, as in the image above. Children love to have their own special space and creating a reading nook or hiding space allows them to escape into their own magical world. In the past I have designed rooms with tented ceilings, trampoline floors and a bed made from silver birch branches decorated with fairy lights. Go on – have some fun! Image Credit
Anna Potter’s bedroom is everything that I look for in a place to sleep. Warm, calm, welcoming and homely. The dark grey walls and bed linen have a sense of calm, like a gentle hug, welcoming you to bed. The oversized vintage map above adds a sense of drama and no need for a headboard. The room is filled with history, a hand-me-down chest of draws, holiday souvenirs, and the owners own artwork on the walls. A vintage, comfortable and stylish space. I could sleep there quite happily. Image credit
A child’s room isn’t just for sleeping in. Encourage creativity with a fun play area. Closed cupboards keep things tidy so the focus is on the important things: chalkboard drawings and artwork displayed on a handy shelf.

When deciding on bedroom colour ideas, you should remember to consider not just the walls and floor, but also the furniture and choice of bedclothes. Simple magnolia walls, for instance, can be offset with ebony wood-tones and dark fabrics for a cool, stylish look, or with bold, vibrant fabric choices to create an overall design that’s young and funky. Whatever colours you choose, it’s important to remember that you have to sleep in your bedroom, so make sure the overall effect is peaceful and conducive to relaxation.
Playful shapes – such as this bed frame in the shape of a house – are a modern take on the traditional four-poster bed. As the furniture is neutral, add charming pops of colour with the bedding and accessories.
I have a thing for fairytales and so I always seek for that ‘happily ever after’ look in my home. With its tactile textures, warming beige tones and flowing covers, this bedroom is the epitome of a bed that’s fit for a princess and her prince – or me and my fiancé. It’s clear that the main focus of the room is the bed itself and so, as I believe that you can never have enough scatter cushions either, this scene truly is my ideal bedroom.

Naomi Paul was commissioned by Studio Ashby to make the beautiful hand-woven, offset wall and table lights. The wrap-around headboard takes on the appearence of luxurious wall panelling and makes the small space look bigger.
Behind the bed in this circus inspired room by William Yeoward, an Eighteenth-century hand-painted screen from Hollyhock sweetly compliments the bespoke tented cupboard from Clock House Furniture. The William Yeoward grey fruitwood, ‘Aberfoyle’, chest of drawers, ‘Bellingham’ bench, and grey mahogany bed are available at Designers Guild.
The pink and cream in this room is a little girl’s dream. But the sophisticated armoire and chandelier mean that it will suit her for years to come, and can be easily updated by changing the bedding and accessories.
My favourite minimal bedroom. A tranquil but bright space, painted floor-to ceiling in white. All the texture is in the layering of the fabrics, the crumpled linen and the tactile woollen throw. A simple bedside table holds a few bedroom essentials, with an unobtrusive light above for reading and one stunning picture is the focal point. Perfection. Image credit

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
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.
When it came to designing this Chelsea home, Stephen Eicker most enjoyed working on this bedroom, belonging to the owner’s two sons, aged three and six. His starting point was the eldest’s obsession with trains, and this led him to the wallpaper by The New Yorker cartoonist Saul Steinberg, which he teamed with a turquoise carpet with red-and-white fabrics. Accessorised with vintage toy trains, the room is original and playful without being overdone or saccharine.
We recently updated my 8 year old’s bedroom and Pinterest was a great source of inspiration for me. She has a small room and I wanted to make the most of the space and decorate it in a way that would see her through her pre-teen years. I’m a huge fan of white walls and light spaces that can be brought to life with a splash of colour and styled with a bit of black too – you can’t go wrong with monochrome! This picture inspired me when I was putting her room together. I love that there is a place of everything but it still looks stylish AND lived in. The monochrome styling mixed with the pops of colour and a few kitsch accessories all work so well together. Image Credit
Blue and white striped walls make this room feel bigger, a clever effect that is strengthened by the matching headboard. The subtle nautical style with industrial touches seems particularly fitting for a bedroom in this Victorian water tower conversion.
