Great Ideas: Separate Your Sleeping Space

By Christa Terry

How restful is this gorgeous bed nook photographed by Michael J Lee Photography? Besides the fact that the design of the nook itself is such a fun nod to Arabian style, finishing it off with real walls makes it feel like a sanctuary from the rest of the room, the rest of the home, and daytime life. It’s a place to go curl up and read and a place where the real world can’t intrude on your dreams.

Something like this can even work beautifully in a small bedroom, even though it’s going to chop up an already tiny space, because it creates areas of specialization that make that space more useful overall. Here’s where you relax… here’s where you get dressed… maybe there’s a little desk over here where you pay bills or do a little weekend work. And your bed remains just a bed, never stressful or cluttered up with stuff.

    It’s a charming way to make some private space. I think it’d be great for siblings sharing a room, or for guest sleeping space in a family room–it also works as a reading nook when you don’t have guests.

    Ooh, could you imagine a shared kids room with a nook on either side and then a common shared space in between! A couple of curtains, maybe, then both kids have private space.
