Build-in sleeping nook

I saw the colorful build-in sleeping nook bed some time ago. I really liked it but I couldn't find where it came from! What a nice surplice too see it back in the May issue of vtwonen magazine! It is a room of 9 year old Olivia and the bed was made by her parents. The sleeping nooks are having a really long tradition in Dutch culture. I like the idea to use the space under the bed for toys, small shelfs for treasures and above it, it is even a place for a guest to sleep ( you can reach it with a ladder! ) . The neon yellow and pink colors are really 'hot' in this season - you can see it in the beautiful Scholten&Baijings plaid on both beds I'm showing. The sleeping niche below is from the last number of EigenHuis and Interieur

  1. day by day ... watching a lot of interior's blogs.. I like more and more pink, yellow and light blue together with white background :)
    the idea of this bed inside the hole .. it's quite claustrofobic for me ..

    1. Children like to hide, so I think many of them will love to sleep there. If I will have to do it (?) then probably will be not so much fun ;-)...I like more open space too. I choose the last photo more for " the same color pallet " and the idea.

    2. You're right.. for kids.. it's great idea for bed :)

  2. that is such a sweet idea -- I love it :)
