As a child I didn’t have the money to upgrade my room with new pillows or furniture so I turned to the one free option: rearranging my existing furniture. To say I was obsessed would be an understatement. My mom would often come into my room on a weekend afternoon and find all of my belongings shoved into the center of my room and me throwing my entire body weight into moving my dresser across the floor. I was very inspired by the pages of Pottery Barn Teen (lol) and was always trying to recreate the unique layouts that they featured in their glossy (relatively unrealistic) pages.

For the sheer ingenuity of it, I freaking LOVE the look of beds thoughtfully (this is key) shoved into corners and other nooks. My childhood self might have just wet herself if she had seen Stacie Flinner’s canopy bed in the corner. Ugh so gorgeous.

Is potentially wetting myself dramatic? Yes.

Accurate? Definitely.

I mean…. look at it:

The use of space in all of these rooms is ingenious, and I love how each designer very intentionally implemented the beds into the design as opposed to leaving them as an afterthought. In my opinion, all of the rooms are very expensive looking and professional despite their utter lack of space to work with. Being able to work with such little space and still produce an expensive looking, stunning room is the mark of a truly talented designer in my opinion.

Well there we have it folks: my favorite “bed in a nook” rooms. If these cozy cocoons don’t make you want to curl up with a glass of red and a thriller (or in the case of the last bedroom, your American Girl Dolls) then I just don’t know where your priorities lay.

So what do you think? Which room is your favorite? Would you ever consider doing something like this in your own home? Let me know in the comments below!
