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.

Bedroom design ideas – the good, the bad, the ugly

October 8, 2010

I come across a lot of weird and wonderful bedroom designs in my job. Some make so jealous that I go home and look at my own bedroom like it’s a cheating love rat. Others horrify to the point where I want to run home and hide under my duvet in case they chase after me!

Today is one such day. A ‘why do I live in England again?’ bedroom a ‘should I call the police?’ bedroom and a ‘feels like it’s constantly watching me’ bedroom.

The good – size-of-a-swimming pool ensuite bath, utter luxury and the fact that it looks out to the tropical ocean aside, this beautiful bedroom is warm, inviting and has bags of five-star style.

The bad – my only concern is that those ‘stone accents’ were once this resident/prisoner’s only windows and doors?

The ugly – I don’t know if it’s the cobweb-like canopy or the wooden skull/CLAW bed frame, but there something very eery about this bedroom design for me. What do you think?

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!
