Sylvia has a problem:
I live in half-a-house, sealed up and separate from the rest. The other half is occupied by my dad. As a space that wasn’t really built as an entire house, it’s a kooky space, but it’s fabulously cozy. The back “room” is our study/music room/art studio AND guest bedroom.
I have a king bed in a pretty prominent corner. How can I make this look less like a bed that got lost on its way to an ACTUAL bedroom, and more like some sort of daybed situation?
I tried some lame ideas like leaning pillows up against the wall, but it always looks kind of out of place. Any ideas?
This is a great question — some of our readers living in studio apartments must be asking the same. When I lived in a studio, we had the same problem and also tried the pillow solution — but it’s not great.
The best solution I’ve found is to build an L-shaped padded headboard, something like this one.
Whatcha got, Homies? Any other ideas for making a bed look natural and less bed-like?
