"A successful children's space must have 3 things - a comfortable place to sleep/rest; enough room to create and read; and a touch of magic. Everything else is superfluous. This child's room has all three. The bed is next to a small chalkboard and crate stocked with favorite books. And the hidden play space under the lofted bed is the perfect magical hideaway." Janie Lee at Ohdeedoh


Janie was referring to the room below...

 I really want Bennett to have a magical bedroom/bed area when he gets a little older.
These pictures got me started thinking about what I want Bennett's room to be like...

Sure, some are a little over the top (ahem...ship) but you could totally play off of these ideas.
I'm sure having an awesome bed wouldn't hurt in the fight to get them into bed at night either!
I especially love the hanging beds.

    I love the bunk beds that look like a theater! So fun and wouldn't be too hard to make out of bunk beds! Excited to see you this weekend!

    i love all these! bunk beds always worry me though, because craig fell off of his when he was a kid and kept puking afterwards and had to get a CAT scan cause they thought he was all jacked up....but obviously he was still ok :). but still....i want a little cozy loft hideout in mine & craig's bedroom....like that last photo. sleeping in your own little fort would be awesome...whether you're a kid of not!

    If I had a room like that, I don't know if I'd ever leave! I'd just sit in there and read books...glory!:-) xoxo

    Some of those bunk beds look amazing! If Kara and I had those instead of the lame set we had growing up I don't think we would have minded sharing a room so much. Also, not having a sister kicking the bottom of my bed all the time would help with that, too.
