Snug as a bug

As a child I was very drawn towards alcove beds. They were kind of a legitimatization of the pillow fort.


Now I think of them as rather cozy looking although impractical for the bedmaker-in-chief.


Properly making that upper bunk would be a pain and probably reserved for special occasions in my house, like never.




I still can't help but want to curl up in their three-sided coziness.





They are often combined with clever storage but I prefer the simply romantic, curtained cocoons.
Would you want one of these in your house?

I love them, too. They look really fun when they are incorporated into a slanted ceiling, etc. I loved your artwork on TPP! So beautiful.

They do look perfectly cozy. Especially on a cold day like today.

Definitely! I would love to curl up in it with a great book!

So inviting.....they say ' Oh come in and take a nap"!

I love them. They are like little forts! I would love an alcove sitting area or daybed. Hope all is well and that J got back to school safe and sound! Happy painting!

I love the photo with the multiple beds - perfect for a summer house. I would NOT want to make the bed, though. On any of them. (But my husband is really good at making beds... if we had a bed like that it could become "his chore") :)

Definitely! Actually I would love one of these for myself!
