Children's Room with an Alcove and a Hidden Bed

Check out this children's room!


It's interesting at least for two of its features. The first thing, that grabbed my attention is the concealed bi-level bed. It's a great idea, isn't it? And second is the alcove bed. This kind of bed always gives some cosy and pretty feeling. And it's also very important and interesting for a child to have it's own corner, an imaginary little personal house for the kid.

The light and soft color palette is pleasant and calming. The furniture - which looks very smart and well-designed - completes the look. In such room kids will sleep sweet and will see only good dreams.
