An oversized chandelier is the centerpiece of the living room, illuminating the cozy cream-colored sofa and gray armchairs. A wooden header in the doorway between the living room and kitchen visually links the two spaces.
A sleek wood bed unit blends with the natural wood ceilings of this modern and minimal bedroom. Exterior walls of glass open the space to stunning views of the rugged, hilly surrounding landscape. A rustic accent wall further ties the space to its natural site.
The framing and built-in stairs in the bunk-bed unit are painted white, and black metal railing provides visual contrast. The skinnylap wall treatment adds texture while keeping a neutral backdrop. The lofted bed leaves a nook space perfect for setting up a study space.
One of the special features of this master bedroom is its custom bed, one foot wider than a regular king-sized bed. Another is its wraparound windows. The palette was chosen to blanket the space in soothing calm.
Bedroom design doesn't end with the bed. Headboards can add just as much, if not more character. This headboard has a circle cut out of it, which designer Tom Beasley uses to show off the floor-to-ceiling curtains behind it and the bed.
For older children and even adults, a loft bed is a great way to leave floor space open. It takes advantage of otherwise unused space and makes it possible to add a desk or a seating area in a small room that would have been otherwise overwhelmed by a large bed.
