The title of this post might be misleading. I haven’t actually purchased a bed for Tessa yet, but your feedback on the different bed options helped me narrow it down to two contenders: Land of Nod’s Simple Bed or an upholstered or slipcovered headboard. Lots of you had opinions about where to place the bed, so I thought I would show you how it looked in different places.
As you look at the following pictures, please imagine that the mattress is on an actual bed frame so things don’t look quite so schlumpy. Also imagine that there is more art on the walls. Also imagine that I got to eat some dark chocolate after lugging Tessa’s furniture around.
Option 1 is where the bed is currently, diagonally across from the door. I like this position, but I wonder if the headboard will look funny sticking up past the window ledge.
Option 2 would still be diagonally across from the door, but turned to the left. I worry that the curtain would look a little strange visually cut off by the bed.
Option 3 is across from the window. The bookcase could be moved to where the chair is; the chair will be Craigslisted eventually.
Option 4 is also across from the window. The end of the bed is only a few feet from the doorway.
Tessa’s room is still very much in the “before” category. A proper bed frame will help it on the road to becoming an “after” — but where should it go?
