Sleeping in the Air

My husband recently made a throw-away comment that I just can't get out of my head. You see, we live in a reasonably-sized 3-storey Victorian house with 4 bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are  - by English standards at least - huge. The fourth was originally tiny, and has at some point been made even tinier by the fact that previous occupants stole some space from it to increase the size of the tiny bathroom.
Up until earlier this year, it was DD1's bedroom, however as I started working from home on a regular basis, I needed a proper space to spend my working hours, and the smallest room seemed like the obvious place. Our two girls now share a room (eventually I hope to split the top floor into two bedrooms for them).

Anyway, above what is now my study is a small loft space, probably just enough space for a double mattress. He mentioned that maybe we should open up the ceiling and put a double bed up there, as a useful extra space when we have guests.

Since then, I have been dreaming of a bed in the sky:

Sadly, I think it would probably end up looking more like this:!


  1. Wow, what a lot of potential! Love the idea of a secret room but it terrifies me too. This would be a lot more acceptable.


Found your fantasy space? Let me know about it!
