This bedroom alcove was created with a custom raised bed and upholstered headboard, enabling a dressing and storage space to be housed beneath. Geometric panels akin to a giraffe's hide create a cool safari vibe in this midcentury loft.
Tamara Hubinsky’s mission for this design was to create a hideout for the 9-year-old boy that would still accommodate him as he matured. The bookshelf stairs were custom designed to provide storage and utilize precious bedroom space. The stairs also add structure to the loft bed, which is important for kids’ rooms that are subject to lots of movement and heavy use. Small stair carpet treads (in a stone, riverbed pattern) add comfort and safety.
Four lucky kids can sleep comfortably in these twin bunk beds. A red and white area rug provides plenty of play space. Large windows extend up to the top of the cathedral ceiling to let in plenty of natural light.
As the boys grow, their interest in activities is sure to change. And in the future, when one is heading off to college, the other will still have three years left in the room by himself. To add additional hangout space should the bottom bunk become no longer needed, the mattress of the lower bunk sits on a trundle which rolls out completely, creating an additional private space for lounging, gathering or doing homework.
Enhance your loft - If you’re converting a loft space and had written off the idea of making good use of sloping eaves for anything other than, potentially, storage, perhaps this idea will spark your imagination.
An Hermes pillow in an orange-and-white checkerboard pattern provides eye-catching contrast against the neutral bedding of the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014. The classic blue-and-white pattern in the fabric wallpaper is Pierre Frey's 18th-century ikat Toile de Nantes print.
