Glossy velvety reds work well in opulent bedrooms with a Hollywood Regency or chic glam style. With Valentine’s Day a month away this will also add a touch of romance to the bedroom just in time!
DIY diva AngieintheThickofIt took some plywood and old dressers and turned them into this pretty and practical daybed for her kids. By making it taller than most typical bed frames she was able to incorporate ample cabbies and drawers as well.
We are a big fan of bedrooms that combine modern aesthetics with the classic rustic style to create flowing fusion between the two. Shaping a kids’ bedroom that is both refined and rustic is a lot easier than you think and it gives you a room that grows along with the needs and choices of your child.
Handsome and sleek by day and comfortable and restful by night the Eileen Grey chaise is the best of both worlds. The no-frills stainless steel frame is airy enough to work in a small space and the repositionable cushion serves as both an armrest and a pillow.
While we’re pretty partial to the idea of stealing a wink or two during the day that’s not the only reason that daybeds have a special place in our hearts. These versatile pieces transcend their lazy reputations by doing double duty as both seats and beds and are especially useful in urban settings where space is at a premium.
There are so many wonderful options on the market these days that it’s difficult to choose but we especially like the ones that can be converted to tween beds when your little one gets older (why spend extra money on another bed if you don’t need to?) and options that double as play areas. Read on to see them all!
Instead of heavy wooden elements and weathered surfaces opt for more modern decor and accessories. Add a reclaimed bedside table or a wooden headboard that makes a big statement in the modern room. The important thing here is to keep the color palette warm and earthy and the bed frame rustic while adding a few modern touches to the room.
On the other end of the spectrum the Raven tufted daybed is a cushy alternative that delivers the luxurious feel of a plush king-size bed in a pint-size package. Handcrafted button tufting gives the piece an opulent look without taking up unnecessary space.
