For House & Garden’s Carole Annett, a passing request for decorating advice from her friend, the interior designer Emma Sims Hilditch, turned into the top-to-bottom redecoration of her Surrey house in time for Christmas.
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/
The owners of this newbuild Bahamas beach house turned to trusted interior designer John McCall to provide their house with a British sensibility, practical furnishings and interiors that are not ‘too beachy’. A white palette characterises most rooms in the house. Pastel blue is added in the main bedroom with bedding and a storage chest. Pineapple detailing at the top of each post on the four-poster bed subtly offers a Caribbean feel.

This sweet attic bedroom, which belongs to designer and House & Garden contributor Ben Pentreath, can be found at the top of his gently restored Georgian country house. The cosiness of this room makes it a lovely kids’ bedroom. The twin beds sit nicely in the small space and the cream panelling brings light to the room.
Juggling the demands of a growing family and an interior-design business, Nicole Salvesen updated her south London house to increase the feeling of space with bright colours and more streamlined rooms. Bed quilts from Molly Mahon add colour in Nicole’s daughters’ bedroom.
Twin beds are ideal for this guest room. The Colefax & Fowler ‘Snow Tree’ wallpaper in aqua works perfectly with a view to the garden outside, creating a light and verdant bedroom. All the tones and patterns are harmonious and soft. The armchair has a classic bullion braid trim and the lantern continues the garden theme of the room as its design would be fitting for outdoor use.
Decorating with multiple colours can be an intimidating task for even the most seasoned of designers. No matter how genuine our initial enthusiasm for venturing across to the other side of the paint chart, it is all too easy to get cold feet and talk ourselves out of being more courageous with colour, settling instead for safe, neutral schemes. Colour, however, shouldn’t be used exclusively to make a statement. Gabby Deeming set herself the challenge of creating four palettes from the Mylands paint range. Each palette is made up of four shades that would sit together harmoniously in a space, and work beautifully with textiles and wallpapers. The walls are painted in ‘Piccadilly’ and ‘Palmerston Pink’, £34.66 for 2.5 litres matt emulsion, while the floor is in ‘Honest John’, £21.65 for 1 litre water-based eggshell, all from Mylands.
The bedhead in the main bedroom was designed by the home’s owner, interior designer Robert Moore. The fabric, ‘Palma Large’ from Bernard Thorp (£75 per metre) is also used on a chair in the bedroom (not pictured) and for the curtains in the bathroom.
In fact, your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
The canopy in this girl’s bedroom, designed by Studio Alidad, was intended to make it feel more ‘feminine and special’. The bespoke floral design on the headboard and silk fringe is repeated on the fabric wallcovering, while the ceiling and corona are hand-painted.

Blogger Rachel Denbow’s kids’ room is proof that you don’t need matching beds or bedding in a shared room. An eclectic mix of furniture (particularly when as eye-catching as this large display board) can be equally as stylish.
Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory, Coco Chanel famously advised. The same technique can be used for your home. The removal of a bedside table – leaving the flowers and books on the floor – add an inspired touch to this room.
This bedroom is within a newbuild in California decorated by David Bentheim. A modern iron four poster bed is draped with a linen-covered duvet, wool blanket and monogrammed cushions. The colour scheme is kept calm and bright with white walls and painted panelled ceiling, Crittall-style french doors and window are both covered with soft grey roman blinds. A crystal chandelier adds the slightest touch of glam.
The pale walls, bedding and headboard in this small bedroom are perfect for such a tiny space. Loft conversions always benefit from large windows, such as the one here, to fill the rooms with natural light.

I have a on-suite and i would like to know if its fashionable to match your bathroom with your bedroom. It looks odd seeing the contrasting colours. Help me!!!!! Thanks ? xxx
Decoration editor Gabby Deeming has played with the colours and textures of natural materials to a serenely simple, Eastern-inspired scheme for this bedroom. Of the cork used on the walls she says ‘There is a warmth and versatility to cork; the wallcovering can also be used as an upholstery fabric.’
The master bedroom in this petite, 90sq metre family home in London’s Chelsea is the work of designer Eve Mercier. The two Rothko-esque panels that flank the bed are not paint but vibrant silk, while the Fifties-style Danish bedside tables come from Chelsea Textiles (£498 each), a good source for chic and simple designs. On top of them are Forties lamps.
Greens and blues are a soothing choice, as they help to relax body and mind, particularly when used in paler tones. That said, dark colours such as warm grey, midnight blue or even black can create an intimate, cosseting feel that’s perfect for a bedroom. A white bedroom scheme, on the other hand, has a light, carefree feel that can help you to unwind at the end of a busy day.
In this stylish children’s bedroom designed by Henri Fitzwilliam-Lay, a fixed and shaped box pelmet with curtains in a pale blue fabric is a smart choice as it will not be quickly outgrown when the children become teenagers. The overall effect is modern and elegant.
Sisters sharing a room can be a recipe for squabbling. To keep the peace, go in with a game plan. If the girls are old enough to help with decor decisions, ask for their input. That way they’ll feel like they have a vested interest in the room. Also, designate an area for each girl’s stuff so both will feel like they have their own space. Another tip: Plan for the future. When baby outgrows the crib, be prepared to shift around furniture or consider adding a bunk bed or a trundle bed.
Looking for a sophisticated palette that manages to be both masculine and glamorous at the same time? Then consider the combination of chocolate brown and white. Amp it up further with a small chandelier, a patterned rug and white bedding, and the result is pure splendor.
The power of three. If you keep the rest of your room plain, have three statement touches to make the room pop. Here, it’s the artwork above the bed, the pink pillowcases and the bright stools. Simple, no?
If you’re anything like us, you get your design inspiration from anywhere and everywhere – including hotels. Dormy House in the Cotswolds is a contemporary meets country chic weekend retreat attracting smart city dwellers. It also happens to be designed by Emily Todhunter from Todhunter Earle, a name regular readers will recognise. Todhunter Earle are behind many homes we’ve featured and Emily spoke recently at our reader event on hotel design. Inspiring, no?
Lots of kids want a rainbow-bright bedroom, and why not? If your daughter loves color, but not necessarily all pink, keep the floors, the furniture and the walls (other than perhaps one accent wall) neutral, and then go wild on the bedding, small furnishings and accessories. A crazy-bright accent wall mural is another fun touch that works in a child’s space, but is too much for the master bedroom. This adorable room was found on Craft-O-Maniac.
These rooms are awesome! Really love the graffiti wall and blackboard wall; I think feature walls really make a room stand out. I have found some brilliant teen bedroom ideas recently, a great range to suit all budgets.
Let’s face it, teenagers and orderly rooms are a rare combination. Messy rooms seem to be a teenager’s rite of passage. Good storage options will be the best feature they didn’t think they needed but will appreciate.
Cushions from Beaumont & Fletcher are among the golden accents in this spare room in the London flat of Hannah Cecil Gurney, the daughter of Claud Cecil Gurney, founder of the handmade wallpaper company de Gournay. The walls are clad in a glorious green hand-painted wallpaper. Follow Hannah’s lead and inject some glamour into your spare room – we promise you’re guests won’t be dissappointed!
There are many different steps to decorating a kids room that begin with deciding on a theme and end with choosing what color you wish to adorn the walls with. Obviously you have multiple choices for decorating the walls of your childs bedroom, however the two most popular options are wallpaper and paint. While wallpaper comes in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and textures, it tends to be a much more tedious process with more permanent results. Removing it takes a lot of time and effort, and can also damage your walls. Paint, on the other hand, does not take a lot of time to apply and can easily become a do it yourself project. Plus, as cartoon characters and games become more popular, companies are creating paint colors for girls room that are based off of popular kids shows such as Dora the Explorer and toy brands like Fischer Price. Paint a bright pink and purple girls room that has wall decals of Swiper and Boots or choose a more subtle green that is found in the popular baby brand Luv U Zoo.
