While I am working on the entire downstairs at the Filman-Carter home, our last install upstairs was daughter number three - Lily's room. She wanted - a "den" feeling, the Serengeti, and a punching bag, yep that's what I said.
This room, small as well, was a huge challenge. With closet doors, entry door, 8 foot ceiling and an overall small floor plan the loft bed idea was something I really didn't want to do. It can be first of all a pain to make up and just something that eventually runs its course and you have to get it out of there, not to mention expensive. I had this idea to center the new dresser in the room and create fabric panels on two sides of it. This created a cozy and tucked away sleeping and lounging area, keeping the floor open for that requested punching bag ! Leaf patterns, distressed wood and the stamped hide rug with zebra pattern finished it all off for a walk down the animal trail. Different for sure . . . What do you think?
I had a low upholstered headboard made to run down the side of the bed creating both a "sofa" and a bed. The same fabric as the headboard falls at the head of the bed from the ceiling.
I love this rug - have one in my office !
