Inspirational Interiors: Beds With a Bonus
Posted: May 20, 2014 Filed under: 1970s, cosmopolitan, interior design, Robert Perron, Sante Forlano
The bed is built up on a plywood base that doubles as bookshelf and storage space. The mirror behind the headboard makes the whole room seem larger and the light box over the bed gives a modern canopy effect by allowing lights to glow through stripes of glass fibre. The cushions are appliqued in vivid colours to make extra seating.
If you think your bedroom is only for sleeping, look at these ideas for creating a total living environment.

Bedroom or living room? It’s hard to tell which, with a platform bed built up on a stair and completely carpeted. Luxurious bedspread (make your own with fake fur fabric from a selection at John Lewis) and cushions add to comfort for guests who want to loll around. Create your own graphic design with glossy coloured paper or remnants of felt.
