A cuter bedroom decorating idea?

April 12, 2011

GAH! I can’t decide between this beautiful vintage bedroom and yesterday’s cute-as-pie guest bedroom?? What do you guys think?

Check out this photo gallery of 5 steps to a vintage-style bedroom

My favourite idea has to be the lace wall stencil and jewellery display! Never has buying new jewellery been so justifiable in the interior design style stakes!

The cutest bedroom decorating idea…

April 11, 2011

Ok, it’s a bit of a toss up between this and another gorgeous look actually, the other one I’ll save for tomorrow… (what? I’ve got to keep some mystery!?) Anyway, inspired by my poor excuse for a hotel-style guest bedroom retreat (ahem… think ‘sofa bed’) I’ve been taking notes from Housetohome’s latest spring decorating idea – 5 steps to a pretty guest bedroom.

Follow the link to their 5 easy bedroom decorating ideas… Enjoy!

Cute girl’s bedroom idea

November 5, 2010

Ooooh la laaa! What a gorgeous girl’s bedroom decorating idea from Ideal Home. I would decorate my own room like this if I was sure that over 80% of my friends WOULDN’T suddenly wonder my a) age and b) nationality.

Here’s how to get the look:

1) Go for a grown up theme. If she’s grown out of princesses, then at least inject some girly glamour with a chic wallpaper that makes a statement.

2) Add more colour with wall stickers. They’re a great way to inject colour without overdoing it, plus they’re removable… in case she changes her mind/brings her boyfriend back from university 7 years later.

3) Go for built in storage behind the bed. This unit is the perfect house for everything from photo frames to books and CDs.

Cute children’s room decorating idea

August 10, 2010

I think this children’s bedroom is so sweet, and there’s none of the bright bubblegum garishness you see in so many girl’s room decorating schemes these days.

Simple furniture, quirky decorating touches and timeless vintage pieces. If it wasn’t for the single bed and the fact that onlookers would judge my attempts at drawing portraits, I would live there myself.

Kids’ bedroom ideas for every decorating style

August 6, 2010

Designing a kids’ bedroom so that it looks like someone’s painted it with bubblegum, or so that it looks one gingerbread man away from the set of Shrek the Third might be just what your child is after, but at the end of the day, it’ll be YOU who is frantically scrubbing and re-painting the walls upon the news that their bringing their boyfriend or girlfriend back from university.

Plus, a children’s room can be a beautiful extension of your home. Housetohome has come up with their favourite kids bedroom schemes for modern, country and traditional-style homes. Inspiring!

Feature wallpaper goes cuckoo!

July 13, 2010

Woah! Slow down feature wallpaper, I only asked what your name was!! I love a funky feature wallpaper, and I love the bird trend – especially when it’s incorporated in a summery bedroom design idea, but this is too much for me.

Maybe it’s the combination of the feature wallpaper AND the screen upholstered in exactly the same pattern? Or maybe it’s the fact that a room full of swans isn’t my idea of relaxation? (as much as I love Osborn & Little designs in general) But I just think it’s too much – what do you guys think? Am I being harsh?

Boy’s bedroom ideas

July 8, 2010

I fell in love with the cute boy’s bedroom buys when I went to The White Company press show yesterday (so much so that the PR was probably ASTOUNDED that I didn’t have kids). The cute bedlinen and patchwork throw, rustic apothocary-style storage unit and ‘space’ pegs, are reason enough for me … but only if I could steal the pegs for myself!

These buys won’t be available til Autumn, but in the meantime, check out The Little White Company website for really cute boy’s bedroom furniture and accessories.

Magic boys’ and girls’ bedroom ideas

July 6, 2010

I can live with the inevitable ‘children’s room envy‘ that is so common when you see funky wall stickers and children’s wallpaper in comparison to my childhood of antique bird wallpaper (yes, I might have mentioned that before) and boy band posters confined to inside my cupboard – but a CAROUSEL! Where’s that magic wish machine from ‘Big‘ when you need it?

A rustic wooden bed frame (and carousel for that matter) doesn’t scream stereotypical children’s bedroom, but I’m utterly wowed by this design – and I love the bed canopy/curtains.

Decorating ideas for young adults

June 25, 2010

I never thought I’d be just as jealous of bedroom ideas for teenagers than I am for the beautiful adult bedroom schemes I come across every day, but it was something about the funky wallpapers and multi-zoned spaces that really had me hankering for my school years – that, and the fact that they are looking forward to TWO MONTHS worth of summer holidays!

Bedroom decorating ideas to tweet about …

June 2, 2010

Just when I thought the decorating world had tired of the bird trend and moved on to other creature comforts (remember that horsey hallway idea?), I decided that I had not! I still love how our feathered friends can pull a scheme together with a feature wallpaper there, or some funky bird-print bedlinen there. It’s all about adding cute accents … not dressing your bedroom up like some sort of birdcage! Think pretty and welcoming, not Alfred Hitchcock.

Check out these beauties …

I love this country bedroom decorating idea – the cottage style bed and layers of lace are stunning. It would be a perfect guest room, allowing friends and family to become their own little night owls.

This bedroom design idea from Copy Cat Chic is a little over the tip for me – reminds me too much of my childhood bedroom … don’t ask! – what I do love is the contrast between the vintage wallpaper and the modern punchy blue table lamps and matching stools.

I’ve popped up this bedroom idea before, but I think this folky bedlinen from John Lewis is adorable, and a lovely light take on the bird trend.

I spotted (or should I say ‘twitched’?) this on Apartment Therapy. Now we’re swaying more towards Alfred Hitchcock style, but it certainly makes for an eye-catching feature in this bedroom.
