Stylish Traditional Bedroom

Classic white bedroom

An iron fireplace is the starting point for the classic look in this white bedroom. The wooden floor and black leather headboard add richness to the scheme.


Striped bedroom with canopy

Striped curtains plus a striped lipstick pink bedhead give this traditional soft lilac scheme a boldness.


Boudoir-chic bedroom

Soft pinks and gold help create a boudoir feel in this bedroom. Metallic button-tuck cushions and throw make the bed shine. A statement faux headboard made from shiny metallic paint and soft trailing leaf stickers is an eye-catching feature. A ribbon corsage on the lampshade adds instant glamour, while a bedside table with drawer is great for storing away the essentials.


Velvet bedroom

Use velvet to introduce plush fabrics to your bedroom and create a textured look with silk and satin. A pink fabric canopy from John Lewis over a four-poster bed layered with rich throws, quilts and a velvet bolster creates a bright centrepiece. Dark wood furniture and Sanderson wallpaper also give the room an exotic feel.


Folk bedroom

Layer patterns and textures through cushions, throws, rugs and even furniture. Knitted and homemade products make the room warm and inviting.


Rustic bedroom

This textured headboard, which is made from reclaimed wood, is a stunning focal point for this rustic bedroom. To give it a decorative touch, add chandeliers and small gilt shelves to create a glamourous foil to the rough wood.


Green and white bedroom

Fabrics have been used for the headboard and cushions in a variety of delicate embroidered motifs, but taken from the same palette, giving this bedroom a fresh and calming feel. 


Lodge-style bedroom

Layering up a plush, charcoal-grey, velvet sleigh-style bed with lambswool, cushions and a fleece blanket is the ultimate way to create a warm, lodge-like feel.


Lilac bedroom

Not only does the textured wallpaper add warmth and interest to this bedroom, but it also gives resonance to the soft lilac colour. A velvet headboard is a luxurious touch. 


Bedroom with paisley prints

Scaled-up paisley bedlinen and cushions teamed with a mix of fabrics, including velvet, silk and faux fur, give this bedroom a cosy and rich look. 


Chinese-inspired bedroom

Vibrant green fabric, glossy black furniture and bronze accessories mix to create a Chinese-inspired bedroom. The symmetry of the black cabinets either side of the fireplace, along with the statement mirror, combine to create a striking focal point. 


Soft blue bedroom

The pastel blue wallpaper with paisley print gives this small bedroom a fresh feel. Covering the headboard in a matching fabric and teaming it with nature-inspired cushions enhances the look. 


Teal bedroom

Dramatic teal is really striking in this bedroom. Neutral walls offer the perfect backdrop for this vibrant colour, and the blue is perfectly balanced with deep chocolate so as not to overpower the room. By introducing the colour through cushions, blinds and chair upholstery, it can be changed fairly easily without the inconvenience of repainting the walls.


Classic-style bedroom

A traditional pine bedstead adds a touch of grandeur in this master bedroom. Matching bedside tables add sophisticated symmetry and match the bed perfectly. Brown cushions bring colour to the cream bed linen and a classic-style rug adds interest to the floor.


French-style bedroom

Blue toiles and checks, distressed and painted furniture, and a delicate lace bedspread exude classic French charm. 


Floral headboard

Give your bedroom a country feel with a headboard in a floral motif and oatmeal tones. Built in shelves are a stylish way to store books.


Cool bedroom

Soft green furnishings and cream walls give this bedroom a cool, fresh look. Nickel studs fixed to the headboard add a touch of glitz.


Grand headboard bedroom

A large headboard is the focal point of this master bedroom and is upholstered in grey to match the duvet and lampshades. Shimmering cushions in gold and burgundy add to the sense of hotel style, while matching bedside tables and lamps create a symmetrical, and more formal, feel.


French-style bedroom

An elegant upholstered bed takes centre stage in this sophistciated bedroom. Smart white painted furniture and lamps have a distinctive French-country style and layers of textured throws add to the luxurious look.


Four-poster bedroom

Create a striking look by adding a bold pattern canopy to a Lombok four-poster bed. Rich Mulberry Home silk and velvet cushions and throws provide contrast to the dark wood and soften the effect. Choose a muted paint for the walls, with a lighter carpet shade. Mirrored bedside tables from B & T Antiques add to the sophisticated appeal, while the bench and mirror echo the subtle, oriental lines of the bed.


Stone walls bedroom

The original stone walls give this bedroom a calm and relaxing country look, with plants brightening up the small window. Floral bed linen and pretty accessories, like the shelf with heart cutouts, add warming touches. The wardrobe is given a new lease of life by painting it white and replacing the handles with metal ones.


Restful bedroom

The light blue floral bed linen looks great against the cherry-wood frame in this country-style bedroom. The window seat is perfect for relaxing on Sunday mornings, while flowers and country accessories make it even more homely.


French-style bedroom

French style painted furniture looks pretty and makes a room feel cool, calm and elegant. Combine with crisp, white bed linen and a few floral cushions for a truely romantic feel.


Highland bedroom with four-poster

Drape a metal four-poster bed with a canopy in Abraham Moon fabric to create a Highland baronial look. Mix a plaid carpet from Axminster Carpets in natural tones with damson and heather bedding from Next. There are accessories in purple and mushroom to complement the tartan patterns.


Grand bedroom

Climb into a bed piled high with fine linens and cushions. Create this impressive centrepiece with a four-poster bed set against a classic damask wallpaper.
