At the end of a long hard day there is nothing better than lying down on and , but how many of us have a conducive interior style in the bedroom? It’s hard to design a bedroom that is stylish yet functional and calming without making it look like a soulless showhome.

The reason I love this bedroom is due to its refined elegance. The simple colour palette makes for a wonderfully calming master bedroom. The classic pinstripe walls serve as the perfect backdrop for the stunning navy upholstered bed, with its many layers of cushions and throws creating a hotel-like feel. From the beautiful symmetry presented through every aspect of this room, to the many sumptuous textures, this bedroom reflects the perfect marriage of classic style with distinctive contemporary touches.

You might associate a boutique bedroom design with a , but you can enjoy sumptuous luxury even in a dated apartment. Here, we upholstered the chaise in a vibrant blue velvet crocodile fabric, toning with teal coloured velvets on the deep-buttoned headboard and runner. Sunset yellow bombé bedside units pick out the gold in the cushions and unify the scheme across the bedroom. A mid-pile Cormar carpet gives a luscious feel underfoot, while fuchsia pink cushions offer a vivid accent. The round concave mirrors were an internet find which we painted marine blue to match the fabrics, adding unique interest to the overall scheme.

I’ve fallen in love with the feel and style of Hygge living; in this room, the client and I wanted to mix contemporary luxury living with a dash of Hygge. So, have kept the colour scheme very neutral, with browns, greys, blush tones and white to create a warm and homely atmosphere. This client dreamed of a very relaxed, yet somewhat tailored appearance, which we feel has been achieved, through the use of many natural textures, the use of clean lines and a minimalistic approach.

I totally adore this luxurious, elegant and cosy bedroom designed in contemporary style. It gives you the feeling of relaxation, calmness, and comfort. Soft textures help to de-stress and clear thoughts after a busy day. Clean lines and uncluttered surfaces will bring your mind in order. You may achieve this look using soothing, neutral colours together with warm, pleasant to the touch materials and rich textures. Plenty of pillows and cushions on the bed and a throw will give . After adding a few pools of soft deemed light and lighting candles with a pleasant scent, you definitely won’t want to leave your hideaway.

I love using deep colours on the wall in a bedroom as it makes the room immediately feel cosy and relaxing, which makes it peaceful for sleeping. A trick is to balance the deep colours with lots of white – bedding is a perfect example of how to do this, as it makes up a large area in a bedroom . White window treatments work great as well . In terms of , you could blend the deep colour of the wall and match with the furniture or go pale so it is more noticeable – both work really well.

To me, the perfect bedroom scheme has to be warm, welcoming and the kind of setting where you can imagine yourself curling up in bed and snuggling down. I love this guest bedroom scheme that we designed for a client’s penthouse; it ticks all the boxes if you are looking for a cosy scheme that oozes glamour.

The use of darker tones on the walls creates instant depth, in particular, wall coverings rather than paint helps to create a more cosy feel, such as this gorgeous grasscloth paper. Layering textures and patterns within a scheme also helps to create that warm enveloping vibe, think gorgeous velvets teamed with satins, luxe faux furs and textured linens.

To complete your perfect sultry bedroom scheme, choose a colour palette of warm hues, highlighted with golds, bronzes and antique brass finishes on decorative lighting, furniture and accessories. Yes, it is all about the gold!

When designing a bedroom, it is especially important for me that we add some natural elements. Whether that’s in the form of the more standard greenery, planting and wooden floorboards or something a little different like the clever use of plywood for a headboard and refurbishing some old crates for storage. By adding these elements, the room takes on a tranquil and relaxing vibe. Studies have shown this can actually reduce the heart rate and pulse making for a more pleasant environment to rest – perfect for retreating from a busy day.

We were lucky to be asked to design this guest bedroom, flooded with natural light due to its large windows, and it was the perfect blank canvas. Being a modern build, we worked to build up the textures to avoid the room looking too flat. One of the tricks we like to use in these contemporary developments is running the curtains wall-to-wall; being the full ceiling height, not only does this make the room cosier, but completely opens the room up.

Feature walls are not something we tend to specify, but in this case, the origami effect wallpaper worked so well to avoid the room appearing too boxy. The final piece to finish things off is a large feature ceiling light, it is so important to upscale such items to make the most of the space.

The secret bedroom! On first glance, one could mistake this room as a study. The floating glass desk and floating Muirhead leather raspberry chair with matching footstool overlooking the magnificent views of London. If you look closely the bespoke library gains in depth with your eye line almost taking you towards the view. Hidden behind the raspberry wall feature framed in dark walnut is a comfortable double bed with hidden lighting. The walls are white and the flooring is slate tiles, the black and white frame of the room allow the colour to add drama. Practical and beautiful!

I love the soft, muted palette of this master retreat. Cool greys and ivory are well-suited for the bedroom – a space that should feel calm and restful. The mix of textural fabrics and nubby wool rug create a warm, layered space that still feels contemporary and tailored.

On paper, this room shouldn’t be lovely at all – tiny, with barely any room for even a bed, and crammed with bright colours and clashing patterns. But in reality, this space, which I shot for my book , is actually one of my favourite bedrooms I’ve ever worked in. This gorgeous sea green hue breathes life into this bijou space, whilst ingenious storage ideas, such as using a wall-mounted telephone table instead of a bedside unit, and hanging storage pockets on the wall, make best use of the available space. It proves that if you have courage in your design convictions, you can make anything work, whatever the challenge.

This is my 8-year-old son’s room, styled and photographed by myself. It’s a modern Breton themed bedroom. I styled this bedroom in the autumn to bring a fresh, bright and happy feel to the room. I made sure that a cosy feel is maintained, with the soft throw on the bed for bedtime tucking in and the cushion for casual lounging. Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends.

This is a gorgeous example of a modern bohemian loft bedroom, achieving a relaxed and simple yet cosy atmosphere. I love the calming green walls and watercolour artwork which create a sense of calm, contrasted against the textured printed tapestry hanging over the headboard. Colour in the bedroom is such a brilliant way to create a positive, uplifting feeling every morning to wake up to. Natural fabrics such as linen add to the bohemian vibe, and the Scandi minimal table lamps perfectly finish off the crisp, clean, totally inviting environment.

I love this luxurious bedroom designed for a colour blind client. The careful mix of pattern and texture maximises the visual impact he gets from it, without being overwhelming for anyone else. It’s a large, bright space that could take a lot of colour without looking busy, and can easily absorb big pieces . has a to-die-for amount of storage in addition to the three massive wardrobes alongside the bed, which allows for everything to be put away and hidden so that you can enjoy the bright colours and still have a tranquil space to escape to. Deep jewel tones, such as the turquoise Porta Romana Thread lamps, and matt metallics allow the scheme to be both rich and restful. The style is very much that of a small boutique hotel – creative and encouraging. It’s not a room you go to unwind and declutter your mind – it’s an exciting destination in itself. Every texture is interesting, inviting and playful. The Stark carpet is wonderfully soft under food, and the silk bed throw from Soak and Sleep has a luxurious and subtle sheen to it.

For me, symmetry is a really effective feature in bedroom designs. We used these matching bedside tables and lamps to create a sense of balance which work perfectly to ground what is quite a bold and colourful room. I always go for a really crisp clean white bed linen, it automatically makes a space feel more elegant and provides the perfect foundation for colourful soft furnishings. Finally, texture is always an important consideration. In the above bedroom, the mixture of wooden and metallic finishes create contrast in the room whilst also making it feel more contemporary. Layering texture is essential in any scheme but I would say even more so in a neutral bedroom scheme where texture adds depth and dimension.

This master bedroom in a grand, light-filled house in Dorchester has lofty ceilings and huge sash windows. We reinstated the cornice and picture rail to balance out the scale of the room and visually lower the ceiling. The owners were initially nervous moving from magnolia to indigo blue walls, but Farrrow and Ball ‘Pitch Blue’ in this south facing room adds depth and drama. The rich blue is punctuated with the warm mustard of the tall bedside lamps and accessories, and the geometric embroidered curtains keep the large windows from over-powering the space.

At Thompson Clarke, we love to balance colour and pattern with classic tones and designs which is exactly what you can see here – take the pink ikat cushions on the crisp white bed linen with its pink piping, and then the multi-coloured rug which works beautifully set against the neutral wall colour. This bedroom is flooded with light so we wanted to keep it bright and fresh with pops of colour, but also make it super comfortable and inviting. A good mantra when it comes to interior design is, ‘nothing should match – beautiful things always go together’ – that’s my rule of thumb.

I absolutely love this loft bedroom by Emma Gurner, as it is cosy and welcoming, but contemporary and minimalist at the same time. I like the colour scheme of dark blue and pink, which is very feminine and the wooden built-in wardrobes give the rooms a masculine edge, so it speaks to both men and women. The pink lampshade with the copper base is a show stopper and I can imagine it gives the room a warm and cosy feel I the dark.

We love this look because of the fresh take on what could potentially be a period interior. The yellow wall brings it bang up-to-date, freshening the space and bringing the whole room to life. The antique touches of mismatched frames, the oversized wooden bed, stripped back floorboards and the old chandelier contrast perfectly with the statement wall giving it oodles of character. The picture rail breaks up the room giving it plenty of height but the patchwork , rug and cushions keep the room cosy.

This beautiful soft industrial bedroom featured on the cover of the launch issue of – and it’s proved very popular ever since! The original features of a warehouse conversion, such as exposed brickwork, can often feel ‘hard’ and ‘masculine’. Old and new steel furniture is especially striking in such spaces but can also feel cold. When styling the Warehouse Home bedroom , we wanted to prove that industrial chic can have a softer side. A bespoke galvanised steel pipe bed, designed exclusively for Warehouse Home by Urban Grain, was the focal point of our warehouse bedroom. And beside it, a vintage industrial bedside cabinet. We then used a ‘masculine and feminine’ palette of greys and blush pinks and a variety of textured fabrics , to bring warmth to our bedroom and soften the industrial look. Select vintage accessories complemented the warehouse conversion’s heritage features, while flowers and decorative vintage glassware further enhanced the ‘femininity’ of the space.

The look of the spare bedroom, if you are lucky enough to have one, is often neglected. However, it is very important to get right so that guests feel both welcome and appreciated. I love this look, especially during springtime as it’s so fresh and seasonal. The monochromatic white base palette is broken up by the green and subtly complemented by the texture of the throw and cushion. The plants, the soft curve of the wall/ceiling and the wooden beam give this shabby chic corner a botanical look, while the metallic frames and gold touch in the lamp and bedside table legs add a touch of sophistication. Artificial plants nowadays are amazingly realistic so I would probably just add natural garden flowers on the bedside table to keep maintenance to a minimum.

Nothing surpasses the tranquillity of seeing your warm, cosy bed after a long day. With your bedroom being the haven for calming relaxation, we aim to heighten these emotions through our complementing interior choices. Here we tailored pastel colours, delicate prints and soft lighting to orchestrate the perfect ambience to help you unwind. To us, the smallest details are essential. Carefully balanced colour hues across selected prints are revisited in our chunky knit. A blissful interior harmony that will ease your mind and leave you to falling in love with your very own haven time and time again.

It is hard to say how many times in my life I have heard the ‘no bed next to a window’ rule. It’s definitely more than a few. Fortunately, rules are made to be broken. If your bedroom is extraordinarily small, you might have limited options on where you place your bed. You can always find a way to put a bed in front of a window and make it look more awesome than awkward, and here we have one example. Thanks to the curtains which frame the window perfectly and the fact they go from wall to wall, the design achieves a luxurious and purposeful look. Symmetry is key here, as the bed lines up with the window in a pleasing, balanced way. The top of the headboard is perfectly in line with the window sill and is not obscuring the window. A calming palette of colours creates a cosy space with a seductive feel.

Far from stark and uninspiring, stripped back wooden floors and plain white walls are the epitome of classic Scandinavian interior design. A personal favourite of mine, there is nothing more relaxing than natural light, contrasting textures and a hint of colour popping through in features such as wall art and cushions. Simple changes make this interior’s style easy to achieve – think fur throws thrown over white linen bedding, painted floors with warmth added through sheepskin rugs, a series of monochrome finishes including framed typography prints and industrial elements such as industrial style lighting juxtaposed with untouched wood finishes found throughout.

I love this bedroom for a number of reasons: it just looks so calm, relaxing and welcoming. It belongs to Netherlands-based interior stylist and journalist Holly Marder, who has a fab blog called Avenue Lifestyle. When you see the before images you will realise just how successful this bedroom makeover has been. Before it was dark and decorated in a garish purple and orange, but Holly has transformed it into a calm retreat by painting the floorboards and walls white. I like how the design is asymmetrical, there’s two different bedside tables, two different lamps, and a cluster of framed pictures on just one side, but it still really works, you don’t have to be too rigid and use the same thing on each side, especially when there are two different people in the bed, with two different personalities!

How about a minimalist bedroom that will wish you sweet dreams? A bedroom that pleases your senses after a long and busy day. A space that is a balm for the soul of its residents, which creates a sense of sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A Zen space with a subtle extravagant touch in the form of a marble wall which acts as a blank canvas for other features. A focal point in a form of a cosy bed upholstered with a nice, soft fabric enriched with two asymmetric lamps giving the space an unusual and interesting look. There is a large walk-in wardrobe, to the right of the bed, allowing residents to keep the space nice and tidy – perhaps apart from a couple of great books laying around here and there. But who wouldn’t love to lay down on this bed with a good read?

This style is perfect for small, inner-city apartment living as well as rentals and short lets – which is what the majority of young professionals are living in these days. The simplicity of white walls and a black floor means that you can add colour with personal items instead of spending lots of money on expensive wall finishes. It also means that matching colours to furniture is less of an issue and things just work together without too much effort. In a small apartment, the bedroom may also double as another space, so it is a really versatile look. The black floor adds warmth to the bright white walls and creates a perception of greater space.

This bedroom has the all-important soft white linen sheets, a bit of greenery and a cool poster. I like simple bedrooms that aren’t overly fussy, so to me, this is perfectly peaceful. It’s also very easy to adapt. If you wanted to add trendy pastel colours, for example, you could simply add a soft pink pillowcase or a throw.

Bedrooms are our sanctuary. They are the place we can unwind, relax, and recharge. In order to do so though, keep the colour palette neutral , clutter to a minimum and include flexible lighting. Use cushions and throws to layer the look, sit back and relax with a cup of decaf tea and a book which will soon help you drift off.

The bedroom is a place you should be able to relax, rest and sleep well. The space, therefore, should be simple, clean and uncluttered. Ban all the unnecessary items and focus on the essentials – comfy pillows, soft bedding, good light for reading, small bedside table to keep your books and water carafe, and a basket for magazines, books or an extra blanket. Create a space where you can rest your eyes and calm your mind – white walls and no busy patterns. Add ing texture by using a variety of fabrics and layers creates a feeling of calm and also the crumpled linen looks very inviting. The only decoration it needs is a single artwork on the wall, fragrant candle of fresh flowers. Beauty is in simplicity.

I love to create a cool, calm feeling of serenity in the bedroom, with an abundance of natural light, crisp white linens and beautiful bohemian accents. One of the great things about having plain white walls and otherwise neutral decor in the bedroom is the freedom to dress your bed in a range of styles to suit your mood and the changing seasons.

I love everything about this bedroom. It’s simplicity and minimalistic approach is what’s really appealing. Those white wooden floorboards are just totally divine and make the room so bright and airy. I just love a room that has white walls and flooring because it is the perfect backdrop for adding colourful accessories. For me it also gives a sense of tranquillity. Let’s not forget to mention the hanging , such a beautiful and simple feature. What I am also lusting after is the clothes rail. Having your clothes out on show gives it a feminine touch to your room and feels very Carrie Bradshaw – just to need to make sure to be super tidy!

I love this bedroom – it was one of the first I designed and the brief was to create an elegant and serene sanctuary. The soft Cornforth White walls combined with the decadent wallpaper by Tapet Café really do complement one another and create a very soothing mood. The Vogue print adds the perfect ‘pop’ of colour and the large mirror reflects a lot of light into the space. The chandelier by Verner Panton completes the look and adds decadence.

When decorating my own home, my furniture picks have been dictated by my shoestring budget. This hasn’t stopped me having big ideas for my bedroom. I’ve just had to be style savvy – picking up vintage finds for next to nothing. I always start with soft grey painted walls, then – my tip – is to paint all my furniture in the same colour so they match – helpful when you are dressing your room with higgledy-piggledy junk shop finds. I’m not adverse to modern designs, in fact I think they are key to stopping a budget home looking to retro or fuddy-duddy. That is why I love statement lighting as it brings a modern twist to an eclectic look. The best bit about doing up a vintage home is these purchases don’t break the bank, and with a bit of hard work can look amazing. And if you tire of it, you can sell it and buy something new – this suits me down to the ground as my bedroom style is always changing.

The bedroom should be one of the most comfortable and relaxing rooms in your home. That’s why I prefer a warm, soothing colour palette that helps you to unwind after a long day. I feel that luxurious textiles such as velvet and silk complement warmer tones very well and give it a high-end look without compromising the comfort. I like the rest of the decor quite minimalist though so the room doesn’t look too busy. Simple and chic is the way to go!

When it comes to bedroom design I truly believe in ‘Less is More’. We spend an average of 6 – 8 hours each day in our bedroom and it is where we recharge our batteries. This is why I think it’s important to keep the bedroom absolutely clutter-free and functional, yet cosy and relaxing.

The inspiration for this bedroom was a tropical Caribbean beach, which to me represents peace and relaxation. I designed this bedroom using clean lines and soothing colours, such as taupe and a soft turquoise. I always recommend cool colours in bedrooms because they create a sense of calm. At the same time, I used warm materials such as wood and fabric, as well as rich textures to create some contrast. Add a few pools of light and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a cosy haven of relaxation.

This bedroom was designed for a client who wanted a room that had the wow factor but was also a relaxing and calming space. We fell in love with this magnificent four-poster bed from ‘And so to bed’ and developed the scheme around it to let it shine! We balanced the glamour of the bed with neutral tones, simple styles and natural textures. The client accessorised the look with her own Moroccan wedding blanket which adds a beautiful rustic contrast to the dramatic bed. We feel it’s a great example of a statement piece, perfectly paired with subtle accessories to create a space that its lucky owner loves!

This colour scheme of is very restful and serene and I love the white floorboards against the soft colour palette. To me, as much as possible should be taken away when styling a bedroom. Lots of space and texture make it feel luxurious. Buy the best quality mattress you can afford and a bed made either of wood or upholstered in restful shades. When it comes to bedding, you can’t beat white and in either Pima, Supima or Egyptian cotton. It’s worth investing in two elegant wall lights and two bedside tables . That’s all you need, except a mirror and a chair to throw your clothes on.

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.

In this elegant room which we designed for a high-profile client, the key pieces are in keeping with traditional Louis XIV style furniture chosen to have a soft distressed finish to complement the beautiful calming aqua, taupe and cream scheme. The variety of fabric chosen was kept to a minimum to allow maximum effect from the main design featuring cherubs and flowers on a linen. To retain the lovely restored wood features around the house, the large rug was designed to leave an exposed border of flooring around the room which tied in with the exposed ceiling beams and the antique decorative accessories. The team lavished style and comfort in this room with a chaise lounge, dressing table and freestanding mirror all chosen for a relaxed bedroom experience.

My personal choice of colour palette frequently ebbs towards darker, richer tones, particularly during the winter months, because these tend to evoke a sense of cocooning warmth and comfort. This dark and alluring charcoal-panelled hotel room I recently stayed in creates instant drama, whilst contrasting crisp white bedding elevates the scheme further. I love how such a minimal monochrome scheme can produce maximum impact, whilst allowing calm to permeate the room for some on-point interior design. I was also fascinated how the softening evening light transformed the charcoal paint colour into a dreamy blue-grey before ebbing back towards black again post-dusk. Working away from home isn’t so bad… #lifeofastylist

Bedrooms should be 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 , 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!

Bedroom design is so personal to each individual. This client’s brief was for a ‘Hotel Luxe’ feel bedroom, with a touch of glamour and without being too feminine. Inchyra Blue was used on the walls to create a space that was rich in colour and that worked alongside the dark walnut furniture, matt black and brass hardware. I feel a bed needs to be inviting – simply by adding cushions and throws you add warmth and texture to the room and pull it all together. This has been achieved with the silk throw in a complementary contrasting colour pop. The overall look is luxurious and inviting.

My favourite bedroom has got to be my own. First of all, our ‘Breaking Bad’ style crocheted throw. Doug and I got completely addicted to this piece of TV genius and are convinced it is going to seriously influence Interior Trends for the next decade – the architecture in Albuquerque is so nice: slightly Mexican with a modern ‘edge’. The artwork above the bed is by my husband, Douglas. His work is our pension. The 1980’s style TV in the corner is a reassuring presence, as is the retro gas fire – all perfect for our unique, one-off 1970’s house. The wire shelving racks are the perfect place to put books, phones and our industrial style inspection lamps.

As an interior design teacher, I spend a lot of my time telling students to relax and allow themselves to play more as they design rooms. This is especially important when it comes to decorating bedrooms. An average adult bedroom is by far the most private room in a family home and offers a safe haven for grown-ups who might have kids, pets, friends and neighbours nipping in and out of the rest of the house.

This allows us to do whatever we like without worrying about other people’s potential negative reactions. When you think about decorating your bedroom and want to create a cosy nook that might not reflect the latest fashion – that’s great. Want to try an unusual colour? Go for it; if you have an idea that’s a bit left field and don’t know which room to try it in – your bedroom is the safest room to let rip with your wildest ideas.

We designed this master bedroom to be a calming yet elegant bedroom to escape the hustle and bustle of life in central London. The gentle blend of soft grey, pastel yellow and deep blue as well as the nautical yet simple artwork reference the maritime history of Greenwich in South-East London. We used soothing dark blue and subtly textured fabrics to make an atmospheric bedroom but also ensure a great night’s sleep!

Don’t be afraid of the dark! Dark colours have become really cool in interiors and bedrooms are amazing spaces to use them. This dark blue creates a really dramatic space and draws your eye to the crisp white linen and the light of the window.

This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions. During the initial design stages, we find it interesting to focus on one key piece and use its colours, look and feel as a starting point for inspiration – this could be anything from a statement painting to an antique rug.

This cottage bedroom at ‘Driftwood’ in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand was a shoot location for ‘Organic Bed Linen Collection’. A space where time became irrelevant and the busy technological world we live in could be placed on hold. The was uncluttered and the use of straw roller blinds and natural light created an atmosphere of wilderness and calm. The incredible view could be enjoyed from the comfort of the bed. A perfect paradise to wake up to!

I love this bedroom we completed for a client late last year, the inspiration was a Soho Georgian townhouse so we naturally looked for using period Little Greene French Grey teamed with marble, brass and blue accents. We created the panelling by designing sizes to fit the room and create height. The headboard was our real feature which you can get made to any design from a good upholsterer, we complemented this with White Company linen with Royal blue detailing. It’s such a calm and welcoming room with warm accents and the brass touches make it feel that little bit special.

I love this bedroom designed by interior architect Susan White from Iggi Interior Design. Susan has taken this room and created a tailor-made space for her client’s daughter. Using vogue and other fashion title covers, Susan created this bespoke wallpaper to sit in the alcove, which has lots of shelving to keep special items. A special space for a special young lady.

Regardless of style and budget, we still all need the same things from a bedroom; calm throughout the seasons and a colour palette to reflect them. A mix of patterns and texture gives a classic contemporary feel, giving you scope to add further or indeed remove according to new finds, or renewed love of old things.

Regardless of the size of your room, the space next to your bed needs a surface, a drawer and a shelf to house what you are reading. A chair to put your clothes on of any size, two if you are sharing! A full-length mirror either on the wall or behind a wardrobe door if space is at premium. Light for reading and more to see properly in the dark of winter. A mixture of old and new always adds softness to this room, your sanctuary. And importantly a blanket for the all-important siesta without disturbing the bed.

I agree with Sarah Akwisombe’s statement. I too, enjoy having a room in dark colours because it’s super inviting and makes me want to sleep and relax. However, I am not a fan of brown colour on anything else than wood. I see that most of the pictures here portray white bedrooms… the least appropriate colour for a bedroom in my opinion.

Bedroom Ideas: 52 Modern Design Ideas for your Bedroom

At the end of a long hard day there is nothing better than lying down on and , but how many of us have a conducive interior style in the bedroom? It’s hard to design a bedroom that is stylish yet functional and calming without making it look like a soulless showhome. We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep but do we realise how much the interior can impact this? The LuxPad spoke to and to get their top tips and advice on bedroom styles that will look great and provide you with the . To discover bedroom decorating ideas that are sure to inspire you just click on the bedrooms below…

The reason I love this bedroom is due to its refined elegance. The simple colour palette makes for a wonderfully calming master bedroom. The classic pinstripe walls serve as the perfect backdrop for the stunning navy upholstered bed, with its many layers of cushions and throws creating a hotel-like feel. From the beautiful symmetry presented through every aspect of this room, to the many sumptuous textures, this bedroom reflects the perfect marriage of classic style with distinctive contemporary touches.

You might associate a boutique bedroom design with a , but you can enjoy sumptuous luxury even in a dated apartment. Here, we upholstered the chaise in a vibrant blue velvet crocodile fabric, toning with teal coloured velvets on the deep-buttoned headboard and runner. Sunset yellow bombé bedside units pick out the gold in the cushions and unify the scheme across the bedroom. A mid-pile Cormar carpet gives a luscious feel underfoot, while fuchsia pink cushions offer a vivid accent. The round concave mirrors were an internet find which we painted marine blue to match the fabrics, adding unique interest to the overall scheme.

I’ve fallen in love with the feel and style of Hygge living; in this room, the client and I wanted to mix contemporary luxury living with a dash of Hygge. So, have kept the colour scheme very neutral, with browns, greys, blush tones and white to create a warm and homely atmosphere. This client dreamed of a very relaxed, yet somewhat tailored appearance, which we feel has been achieved, through the use of many natural textures, the use of clean lines and a minimalistic approach.

I totally adore this luxurious, elegant and cosy bedroom designed in contemporary style. It gives you the feeling of relaxation, calmness, and comfort. Soft textures help to de-stress and clear thoughts after a busy day. Clean lines and uncluttered surfaces will bring your mind in order. You may achieve this look using soothing, neutral colours together with warm, pleasant to the touch materials and rich textures. Plenty of pillows and cushions on the bed and a throw will give . After adding a few pools of soft deemed light and lighting candles with a pleasant scent, you definitely won’t want to leave your hideaway.

I love using deep colours on the wall in a bedroom as it makes the room immediately feel cosy and relaxing, which makes it peaceful for sleeping. A trick is to balance the deep colours with lots of white – bedding is a perfect example of how to do this, as it makes up a large area in a bedroom . White window treatments work great as well . In terms of , you could blend the deep colour of the wall and match with the furniture or go pale so it is more noticeable – both work really well.

To me, the perfect bedroom scheme has to be warm, welcoming and the kind of setting where you can imagine yourself curling up in bed and snuggling down. I love this guest bedroom scheme that we designed for a client’s penthouse; it ticks all the boxes if you are looking for a cosy scheme that oozes glamour.

Bedroom Ideas: 52 Modern Design Ideas for your Bedroom

The use of darker tones on the walls creates instant depth, in particular, wall coverings rather than paint helps to create a more cosy feel, such as this gorgeous grasscloth paper. Layering textures and patterns within a scheme also helps to create that warm enveloping vibe, think gorgeous velvets teamed with satins, luxe faux furs and textured linens.

To complete your perfect sultry bedroom scheme, choose a colour palette of warm hues, highlighted with golds, bronzes and antique brass finishes on decorative lighting, furniture and accessories. Yes, it is all about the gold!

When designing a bedroom, it is especially important for me that we add some natural elements. Whether that’s in the form of the more standard greenery, planting and wooden floorboards or something a little different like the clever use of plywood for a headboard and refurbishing some old crates for storage. By adding these elements, the room takes on a tranquil and relaxing vibe. Studies have shown this can actually reduce the heart rate and pulse making for a more pleasant environment to rest – perfect for retreating from a busy day.

We were lucky to be asked to design this guest bedroom, flooded with natural light due to its large windows, and it was the perfect blank canvas. Being a modern build, we worked to build up the textures to avoid the room looking too flat. One of the tricks we like to use in these contemporary developments is running the curtains wall-to-wall; being the full ceiling height, not only does this make the room cosier, but completely opens the room up.

Feature walls are not something we tend to specify, but in this case, the origami effect wallpaper worked so well to avoid the room appearing too boxy. The final piece to finish things off is a large feature ceiling light, it is so important to upscale such items to make the most of the space.

The secret bedroom! On first glance, one could mistake this room as a study. The floating glass desk and floating Muirhead leather raspberry chair with matching footstool overlooking the magnificent views of London. If you look closely the bespoke library gains in depth with your eye line almost taking you towards the view. Hidden behind the raspberry wall feature framed in dark walnut is a comfortable double bed with hidden lighting. The walls are white and the flooring is slate tiles, the black and white frame of the room allow the colour to add drama. Practical and beautiful!

I love the soft, muted palette of this master retreat. Cool greys and ivory are well-suited for the bedroom – a space that should feel calm and restful. The mix of textural fabrics and nubby wool rug create a warm, layered space that still feels contemporary and tailored.

On paper, this room shouldn’t be lovely at all – tiny, with barely any room for even a bed, and crammed with bright colours and clashing patterns. But in reality, this space, which I shot for my book , is actually one of my favourite bedrooms I’ve ever worked in. This gorgeous sea green hue breathes life into this bijou space, whilst ingenious storage ideas, such as using a wall-mounted telephone table instead of a bedside unit, and hanging storage pockets on the wall, make best use of the available space. It proves that if you have courage in your design convictions, you can make anything work, whatever the challenge.

This is my 8-year-old son’s room, styled and photographed by myself. It’s a modern Breton themed bedroom. I styled this bedroom in the autumn to bring a fresh, bright and happy feel to the room. I made sure that a cosy feel is maintained, with the soft throw on the bed for bedtime tucking in and the cushion for casual lounging. Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends.

This is a gorgeous example of a modern bohemian loft bedroom, achieving a relaxed and simple yet cosy atmosphere. I love the calming green walls and watercolour artwork which create a sense of calm, contrasted against the textured printed tapestry hanging over the headboard. Colour in the bedroom is such a brilliant way to create a positive, uplifting feeling every morning to wake up to. Natural fabrics such as linen add to the bohemian vibe, and the Scandi minimal table lamps perfectly finish off the crisp, clean, totally inviting environment.

I love this luxurious bedroom designed for a colour blind client. The careful mix of pattern and texture maximises the visual impact he gets from it, without being overwhelming for anyone else. It’s a large, bright space that could take a lot of colour without looking busy, and can easily absorb big pieces . has a to-die-for amount of storage in addition to the three massive wardrobes alongside the bed, which allows for everything to be put away and hidden so that you can enjoy the bright colours and still have a tranquil space to escape to. Deep jewel tones, such as the turquoise Porta Romana Thread lamps, and matt metallics allow the scheme to be both rich and restful. The style is very much that of a small boutique hotel – creative and encouraging. It’s not a room you go to unwind and declutter your mind – it’s an exciting destination in itself. Every texture is interesting, inviting and playful. The Stark carpet is wonderfully soft under food, and the silk bed throw from Soak and Sleep has a luxurious and subtle sheen to it.

For me, symmetry is a really effective feature in bedroom designs. We used these matching bedside tables and lamps to create a sense of balance which work perfectly to ground what is quite a bold and colourful room. I always go for a really crisp clean white bed linen, it automatically makes a space feel more elegant and provides the perfect foundation for colourful soft furnishings. Finally, texture is always an important consideration. In the above bedroom, the mixture of wooden and metallic finishes create contrast in the room whilst also making it feel more contemporary. Layering texture is essential in any scheme but I would say even more so in a neutral bedroom scheme where texture adds depth and dimension.

This master bedroom in a grand, light-filled house in Dorchester has lofty ceilings and huge sash windows. We reinstated the cornice and picture rail to balance out the scale of the room and visually lower the ceiling. The owners were initially nervous moving from magnolia to indigo blue walls, but Farrrow and Ball ‘Pitch Blue’ in this south facing room adds depth and drama. The rich blue is punctuated with the warm mustard of the tall bedside lamps and accessories, and the geometric embroidered curtains keep the large windows from over-powering the space.

At Thompson Clarke, we love to balance colour and pattern with classic tones and designs which is exactly what you can see here – take the pink ikat cushions on the crisp white bed linen with its pink piping, and then the multi-coloured rug which works beautifully set against the neutral wall colour. This bedroom is flooded with light so we wanted to keep it bright and fresh with pops of colour, but also make it super comfortable and inviting. A good mantra when it comes to interior design is, ‘nothing should match – beautiful things always go together’ – that’s my rule of thumb.

I absolutely love this loft bedroom by Emma Gurner, as it is cosy and welcoming, but contemporary and minimalist at the same time. I like the colour scheme of dark blue and pink, which is very feminine and the wooden built-in wardrobes give the rooms a masculine edge, so it speaks to both men and women. The pink lampshade with the copper base is a show stopper and I can imagine it gives the room a warm and cosy feel I the dark.

We love this look because of the fresh take on what could potentially be a period interior. The yellow wall brings it bang up-to-date, freshening the space and bringing the whole room to life. The antique touches of mismatched frames, the oversized wooden bed, stripped back floorboards and the old chandelier contrast perfectly with the statement wall giving it oodles of character. The picture rail breaks up the room giving it plenty of height but the patchwork , rug and cushions keep the room cosy.

This beautiful soft industrial bedroom featured on the cover of the launch issue of – and it’s proved very popular ever since! The original features of a warehouse conversion, such as exposed brickwork, can often feel ‘hard’ and ‘masculine’. Old and new steel furniture is especially striking in such spaces but can also feel cold. When styling the Warehouse Home bedroom , we wanted to prove that industrial chic can have a softer side. A bespoke galvanised steel pipe bed, designed exclusively for Warehouse Home by Urban Grain, was the focal point of our warehouse bedroom. And beside it, a vintage industrial bedside cabinet. We then used a ‘masculine and feminine’ palette of greys and blush pinks and a variety of textured fabrics , to bring warmth to our bedroom and soften the industrial look. Select vintage accessories complemented the warehouse conversion’s heritage features, while flowers and decorative vintage glassware further enhanced the ‘femininity’ of the space.

The look of the spare bedroom, if you are lucky enough to have one, is often neglected. However, it is very important to get right so that guests feel both welcome and appreciated. I love this look, especially during springtime as it’s so fresh and seasonal. The monochromatic white base palette is broken up by the green and subtly complemented by the texture of the throw and cushion. The plants, the soft curve of the wall/ceiling and the wooden beam give this shabby chic corner a botanical look, while the metallic frames and gold touch in the lamp and bedside table legs add a touch of sophistication. Artificial plants nowadays are amazingly realistic so I would probably just add natural garden flowers on the bedside table to keep maintenance to a minimum.

Nothing surpasses the tranquillity of seeing your warm, cosy bed after a long day. With your bedroom being the haven for calming relaxation, we aim to heighten these emotions through our complementing interior choices. Here we tailored pastel colours, delicate prints and soft lighting to orchestrate the perfect ambience to help you unwind. To us, the smallest details are essential. Carefully balanced colour hues across selected prints are revisited in our chunky knit. A blissful interior harmony that will ease your mind and leave you to falling in love with your very own haven time and time again.

It is hard to say how many times in my life I have heard the ‘no bed next to a window’ rule. It’s definitely more than a few. Fortunately, rules are made to be broken. If your bedroom is extraordinarily small, you might have limited options on where you place your bed. You can always find a way to put a bed in front of a window and make it look more awesome than awkward, and here we have one example. Thanks to the curtains which frame the window perfectly and the fact they go from wall to wall, the design achieves a luxurious and purposeful look. Symmetry is key here, as the bed lines up with the window in a pleasing, balanced way. The top of the headboard is perfectly in line with the window sill and is not obscuring the window. A calming palette of colours creates a cosy space with a seductive feel.

Far from stark and uninspiring, stripped back wooden floors and plain white walls are the epitome of classic Scandinavian interior design. A personal favourite of mine, there is nothing more relaxing than natural light, contrasting textures and a hint of colour popping through in features such as wall art and cushions. Simple changes make this interior’s style easy to achieve – think fur throws thrown over white linen bedding, painted floors with warmth added through sheepskin rugs, a series of monochrome finishes including framed typography prints and industrial elements such as industrial style lighting juxtaposed with untouched wood finishes found throughout.

I love this bedroom for a number of reasons: it just looks so calm, relaxing and welcoming. It belongs to Netherlands-based interior stylist and journalist Holly Marder, who has a fab blog called Avenue Lifestyle. When you see the before images you will realise just how successful this bedroom makeover has been. Before it was dark and decorated in a garish purple and orange, but Holly has transformed it into a calm retreat by painting the floorboards and walls white. I like how the design is asymmetrical, there’s two different bedside tables, two different lamps, and a cluster of framed pictures on just one side, but it still really works, you don’t have to be too rigid and use the same thing on each side, especially when there are two different people in the bed, with two different personalities!

How about a minimalist bedroom that will wish you sweet dreams? A bedroom that pleases your senses after a long and busy day. A space that is a balm for the soul of its residents, which creates a sense of sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A Zen space with a subtle extravagant touch in the form of a marble wall which acts as a blank canvas for other features. A focal point in a form of a cosy bed upholstered with a nice, soft fabric enriched with two asymmetric lamps giving the space an unusual and interesting look. There is a large walk-in wardrobe, to the right of the bed, allowing residents to keep the space nice and tidy – perhaps apart from a couple of great books laying around here and there. But who wouldn’t love to lay down on this bed with a good read?

This style is perfect for small, inner-city apartment living as well as rentals and short lets – which is what the majority of young professionals are living in these days. The simplicity of white walls and a black floor means that you can add colour with personal items instead of spending lots of money on expensive wall finishes. It also means that matching colours to furniture is less of an issue and things just work together without too much effort. In a small apartment, the bedroom may also double as another space, so it is a really versatile look. The black floor adds warmth to the bright white walls and creates a perception of greater space.

This bedroom has the all-important soft white linen sheets, a bit of greenery and a cool poster. I like simple bedrooms that aren’t overly fussy, so to me, this is perfectly peaceful. It’s also very easy to adapt. If you wanted to add trendy pastel colours, for example, you could simply add a soft pink pillowcase or a throw.

Bedrooms are our sanctuary. They are the place we can unwind, relax, and recharge. In order to do so though, keep the colour palette neutral , clutter to a minimum and include flexible lighting. Use cushions and throws to layer the look, sit back and relax with a cup of decaf tea and a book which will soon help you drift off.

The bedroom is a place you should be able to relax, rest and sleep well. The space, therefore, should be simple, clean and uncluttered. Ban all the unnecessary items and focus on the essentials – comfy pillows, soft bedding, good light for reading, small bedside table to keep your books and water carafe, and a basket for magazines, books or an extra blanket. Create a space where you can rest your eyes and calm your mind – white walls and no busy patterns. Add ing texture by using a variety of fabrics and layers creates a feeling of calm and also the crumpled linen looks very inviting. The only decoration it needs is a single artwork on the wall, fragrant candle of fresh flowers. Beauty is in simplicity.

I love to create a cool, calm feeling of serenity in the bedroom, with an abundance of natural light, crisp white linens and beautiful bohemian accents. One of the great things about having plain white walls and otherwise neutral decor in the bedroom is the freedom to dress your bed in a range of styles to suit your mood and the changing seasons.

I love everything about this bedroom. It’s simplicity and minimalistic approach is what’s really appealing. Those white wooden floorboards are just totally divine and make the room so bright and airy. I just love a room that has white walls and flooring because it is the perfect backdrop for adding colourful accessories. For me it also gives a sense of tranquillity. Let’s not forget to mention the hanging , such a beautiful and simple feature. What I am also lusting after is the clothes rail. Having your clothes out on show gives it a feminine touch to your room and feels very Carrie Bradshaw – just to need to make sure to be super tidy!

I love this bedroom – it was one of the first I designed and the brief was to create an elegant and serene sanctuary. The soft Cornforth White walls combined with the decadent wallpaper by Tapet Café really do complement one another and create a very soothing mood. The Vogue print adds the perfect ‘pop’ of colour and the large mirror reflects a lot of light into the space. The chandelier by Verner Panton completes the look and adds decadence.

When decorating my own home, my furniture picks have been dictated by my shoestring budget. This hasn’t stopped me having big ideas for my bedroom. I’ve just had to be style savvy – picking up vintage finds for next to nothing. I always start with soft grey painted walls, then – my tip – is to paint all my furniture in the same colour so they match – helpful when you are dressing your room with higgledy-piggledy junk shop finds. I’m not adverse to modern designs, in fact I think they are key to stopping a budget home looking to retro or fuddy-duddy. That is why I love statement lighting as it brings a modern twist to an eclectic look. The best bit about doing up a vintage home is these purchases don’t break the bank, and with a bit of hard work can look amazing. And if you tire of it, you can sell it and buy something new – this suits me down to the ground as my bedroom style is always changing.

The bedroom should be one of the most comfortable and relaxing rooms in your home. That’s why I prefer a warm, soothing colour palette that helps you to unwind after a long day. I feel that luxurious textiles such as velvet and silk complement warmer tones very well and give it a high-end look without compromising the comfort. I like the rest of the decor quite minimalist though so the room doesn’t look too busy. Simple and chic is the way to go!

When it comes to bedroom design I truly believe in ‘Less is More’. We spend an average of 6 – 8 hours each day in our bedroom and it is where we recharge our batteries. This is why I think it’s important to keep the bedroom absolutely clutter-free and functional, yet cosy and relaxing.

The inspiration for this bedroom was a tropical Caribbean beach, which to me represents peace and relaxation. I designed this bedroom using clean lines and soothing colours, such as taupe and a soft turquoise. I always recommend cool colours in bedrooms because they create a sense of calm. At the same time, I used warm materials such as wood and fabric, as well as rich textures to create some contrast. Add a few pools of light and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a cosy haven of relaxation.

This bedroom was designed for a client who wanted a room that had the wow factor but was also a relaxing and calming space. We fell in love with this magnificent four-poster bed from ‘And so to bed’ and developed the scheme around it to let it shine! We balanced the glamour of the bed with neutral tones, simple styles and natural textures. The client accessorised the look with her own Moroccan wedding blanket which adds a beautiful rustic contrast to the dramatic bed. We feel it’s a great example of a statement piece, perfectly paired with subtle accessories to create a space that its lucky owner loves!

This colour scheme of is very restful and serene and I love the white floorboards against the soft colour palette. To me, as much as possible should be taken away when styling a bedroom. Lots of space and texture make it feel luxurious. Buy the best quality mattress you can afford and a bed made either of wood or upholstered in restful shades. When it comes to bedding, you can’t beat white and in either Pima, Supima or Egyptian cotton. It’s worth investing in two elegant wall lights and two bedside tables . That’s all you need, except a mirror and a chair to throw your clothes on.

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.

In this elegant room which we designed for a high-profile client, the key pieces are in keeping with traditional Louis XIV style furniture chosen to have a soft distressed finish to complement the beautiful calming aqua, taupe and cream scheme. The variety of fabric chosen was kept to a minimum to allow maximum effect from the main design featuring cherubs and flowers on a linen. To retain the lovely restored wood features around the house, the large rug was designed to leave an exposed border of flooring around the room which tied in with the exposed ceiling beams and the antique decorative accessories. The team lavished style and comfort in this room with a chaise lounge, dressing table and freestanding mirror all chosen for a relaxed bedroom experience.

My personal choice of colour palette frequently ebbs towards darker, richer tones, particularly during the winter months, because these tend to evoke a sense of cocooning warmth and comfort. This dark and alluring charcoal-panelled hotel room I recently stayed in creates instant drama, whilst contrasting crisp white bedding elevates the scheme further. I love how such a minimal monochrome scheme can produce maximum impact, whilst allowing calm to permeate the room for some on-point interior design. I was also fascinated how the softening evening light transformed the charcoal paint colour into a dreamy blue-grey before ebbing back towards black again post-dusk. Working away from home isn’t so bad… #lifeofastylist

Bedrooms should be 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 , 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!

Bedroom design is so personal to each individual. This client’s brief was for a ‘Hotel Luxe’ feel bedroom, with a touch of glamour and without being too feminine. Inchyra Blue was used on the walls to create a space that was rich in colour and that worked alongside the dark walnut furniture, matt black and brass hardware. I feel a bed needs to be inviting – simply by adding cushions and throws you add warmth and texture to the room and pull it all together. This has been achieved with the silk throw in a complementary contrasting colour pop. The overall look is luxurious and inviting.

My favourite bedroom has got to be my own. First of all, our ‘Breaking Bad’ style crocheted throw. Doug and I got completely addicted to this piece of TV genius and are convinced it is going to seriously influence Interior Trends for the next decade – the architecture in Albuquerque is so nice: slightly Mexican with a modern ‘edge’. The artwork above the bed is by my husband, Douglas. His work is our pension. The 1980’s style TV in the corner is a reassuring presence, as is the retro gas fire – all perfect for our unique, one-off 1970’s house. The wire shelving racks are the perfect place to put books, phones and our industrial style inspection lamps.

As an interior design teacher, I spend a lot of my time telling students to relax and allow themselves to play more as they design rooms. This is especially important when it comes to decorating bedrooms. An average adult bedroom is by far the most private room in a family home and offers a safe haven for grown-ups who might have kids, pets, friends and neighbours nipping in and out of the rest of the house.

This allows us to do whatever we like without worrying about other people’s potential negative reactions. When you think about decorating your bedroom and want to create a cosy nook that might not reflect the latest fashion – that’s great. Want to try an unusual colour? Go for it; if you have an idea that’s a bit left field and don’t know which room to try it in – your bedroom is the safest room to let rip with your wildest ideas.

We designed this master bedroom to be a calming yet elegant bedroom to escape the hustle and bustle of life in central London. The gentle blend of soft grey, pastel yellow and deep blue as well as the nautical yet simple artwork reference the maritime history of Greenwich in South-East London. We used soothing dark blue and subtly textured fabrics to make an atmospheric bedroom but also ensure a great night’s sleep!

Don’t be afraid of the dark! Dark colours have become really cool in interiors and bedrooms are amazing spaces to use them. This dark blue creates a really dramatic space and draws your eye to the crisp white linen and the light of the window.

This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions. During the initial design stages, we find it interesting to focus on one key piece and use its colours, look and feel as a starting point for inspiration – this could be anything from a statement painting to an antique rug.

This cottage bedroom at ‘Driftwood’ in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand was a shoot location for ‘Organic Bed Linen Collection’. A space where time became irrelevant and the busy technological world we live in could be placed on hold. The was uncluttered and the use of straw roller blinds and natural light created an atmosphere of wilderness and calm. The incredible view could be enjoyed from the comfort of the bed. A perfect paradise to wake up to!

I love this bedroom we completed for a client late last year, the inspiration was a Soho Georgian townhouse so we naturally looked for using period Little Greene French Grey teamed with marble, brass and blue accents. We created the panelling by designing sizes to fit the room and create height. The headboard was our real feature which you can get made to any design from a good upholsterer, we complemented this with White Company linen with Royal blue detailing. It’s such a calm and welcoming room with warm accents and the brass touches make it feel that little bit special.

I love this bedroom designed by interior architect Susan White from Iggi Interior Design. Susan has taken this room and created a tailor-made space for her client’s daughter. Using vogue and other fashion title covers, Susan created this bespoke wallpaper to sit in the alcove, which has lots of shelving to keep special items. A special space for a special young lady.

Regardless of style and budget, we still all need the same things from a bedroom; calm throughout the seasons and a colour palette to reflect them. A mix of patterns and texture gives a classic contemporary feel, giving you scope to add further or indeed remove according to new finds, or renewed love of old things.

Regardless of the size of your room, the space next to your bed needs a surface, a drawer and a shelf to house what you are reading. A chair to put your clothes on of any size, two if you are sharing! A full-length mirror either on the wall or behind a wardrobe door if space is at premium. Light for reading and more to see properly in the dark of winter. A mixture of old and new always adds softness to this room, your sanctuary. And importantly a blanket for the all-important siesta without disturbing the bed.
