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

This white attic bedroom has a sunny feel thanks to a bright yellow patterned throw and matching cushions. A storage chest with a cute duck design sits at the foot of the bed – perfect for adding character to a bedroom or for a kid’s room.

This stylish nineteenth-century house on London’s Portobello Road is the work of Eleanora Cunietti, one half of Carden Cunietti design practice. The main bedroom has a rich colour scheme and a palette of teal predominates. The owner loves it. ‘There is something incredibly calming about the colour,’ she says. ‘It reminds me of water, always changing, always different.’ The bedcover is ‘Meadow’ silk by Mulberry.
Whether you dream of a calm and restful sanctuary or a luxurious hotel-style bedroom, our gallery of bedroom ideas has expert advice on everything you need to know before you make a start, from finding the perfect mattress to choosing a bedroom colour scheme.

@Fay, that is your opinion, of course. I, however, was admiring the variety in the designs, happy that they weren’t all excessively girly, because, of course, that WOULD be stereotypical. There are girls that do like that kind of thing, however, and I thought this list was very good in portraying different styles for different people. You did find TWO that you liked, didn’t you? Each and every one wasn’t meant to suit each and every girl.
Add some sparkle to a princess-themed room with a starry wallpapered ceiling. This room’s blue ceiling, as well as small pops of powder blues, lavender, and bright coral, breaks up a mostly pink color scheme. Statement light fixtures above the bed give extra glamour that can carry into teenage years.
Tweens are notorious for being a fan of one thing one week to totally flipping and loving something else the next. Shelving and under-bed storage leave room for them to store things until they’re cool again.
There are four beds tucked into the eaves of this large dormitory-style children’s bedroom at Kate Earle’s chalet in the French Alps. Each bed has a curtain and a built-in chest so that the children have their own space and can store personal things. A skylight floods the attic room with natural light and bright colours throughout add continuity.

A shining example of how to do ‘kids’ room coastal’. Classic by the sea style is still used: the wall panneling, touches of white and wicker baskets, but the addition of turquoise and the unique painted furniture give it a younger, fun feel.
Teen bedroom ideas should include functions specific to their age, as well as look great. While adults prefer a space that’s calm and understated, teens appreciate vibrant, high energy rooms. Keep the following teen bedroom ideas in mind.
We all want the same thing from our bedrooms—a sanctuary from the wear and tear of our daily lives, somewhere cosy and refreshing where we can recharge our batteries. But as one of the more private rooms in your home, this is also a place where you can indulge your individual tastes in order to create the perfect backdrop for all those nights of peaceful slumber and happy dreams. Check out some bedroom ideas & bedroom designs above!
Nurture the art lover in your teen by decorating their bedroom walls with prints they’ve picked. If their room is already a technicolour dream, pick a portrait that incorporates as many of the colours as possible to tie the room together.
We discovered Room to clever cupboard bed via The List – House & Garden’s new online directory (find out more here). The bed is an ideal solution for an awkward small space – in this case, a long, narrow room interrupted by a staircase. It is built around the stair, and has ample storage for toys and books thanks to under-bed drawers, a bookcase and internal shelving.
Take a decorating tip from Lisa Teague Studios, and create interest in your small room by placing your bed at a slight diagonal. It’s even better when a pretty folding screen takes the place of a traditional headboard; the screen acts as a focal point for the room, drawing the eye upwards to increase the visual size of the space. Another use for a folding screen in the bedroom is as a privacy barrier around the bed. This is especially good in a studio apartment, or in a shared children’s…MORE bedroom.
personally i think they should be more realistic about the room sizes most kids dont have a room the size of these. and i personally dont like have of these rooms they look to grown up or kinda kidish.
I’m all about maximizing the use of space! Maybe, this is of interest, I recently hired Furnishr to design my living room. I know, I could have designed my room by myself, but I actually liked the designs on their site. Pretty great service. They designed, delivered, and setup my new living room furniture and decor in less than a week. Check them out if you’re interested, http://www.furnishr.com/
We love that there are so many things that catch the eye in this room, from pirate ships and bunting to hot air ballons, fun prints, a stuffed octopus and paisley cushions. It’s just what’s needed to spark a child’s imagination.
After visiting her friend Kathryn Ireland in France’s Tarn region, Anne Halsey bought a French farmhouse retreat there and enlisted the help of the decorator to create a relaxed space perfect for entertaining. This double guest room mixes different colours while sticking to the same gingham pattern (see the lamp shade, blanket and padded headboard), making for a colourful, chic and coordinated space.
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?
