  • Built-In Bunkbeds for Compact Living

    Compact Living

    Have you sat down and pondered over how to make the most of your compact living quarters?  Well we have and our first solution is in the bedroom. Whether it be a kids room or an adults room there are many ways of integrating multiple beds and functioning elements into a space. The Murphy bunk beds (above) are painted in a bright color so when it's closed it becomes an accent wall and only the homeowner knows whats hiding beneath.  This is a great solution for adding additional beds in an open space.

    Lofted Bed

    Layering and stacking the free floating beds clears up the floor space and creates a very playful feel in this modern kids room. Industrial wall sconces allow each of the individual beds to have their own light to control so bed times don't all have to be at the same time!

    Modern Cave Bed

    Using structural elements and carving out little cubbies for sleeping is a brilliant idea. What kid or even adult for that matter wouldn't love to dream away inside their own little cave?

    Modern Bunkbeds

    Not only does this modern bunk bed look beautiful, but what a great way to integrate modern storage solutions. The use of modern wall lamps not only lights up each nook but adds so much character to each space.

    Sleep and creativity go hand in hand!  So start dreaming about all the solutions for your space today!

    Derek Lam Shearling-trimmed Coat

    Winter garb brings thoughts of stylish decor consisting of leathers, woods, and natural tones to mind. Ms. Wooly & Warm loves to take full advantage of this time of year with all of the above! This Brushed Nickel Pull Chain Floor Lamp (below) with a bold black striped shade is a great example of a piece that's both classic and modern. The brushed nickel finish gives off a welcome winter glow.

    Modern Lighting

    Ms. Wooly & Warm knows she doesn't have to choose between color and style when it comes to the Corbett Vertigo Foyer Pendant Light (above). The warm bronze and gold leaf tones in the swirling iron make any space feel more inviting.

    The Mercury Glass Table Lamp with drum shade (above) helps Ms. Wooly & Warm maximize every last ray of winter sun. The textured base gives reflections an extra oomph and helps to brighten any corner the lamp is placed in.

    Modern Furniture

    Casual, comfortable, and easy to stash away when Ms. Wooly & Warm feels like changing up her stylish decor for warmer weather – that's what the Zuo Draper Lounge Chair (above) is all about. It's also the best place in the living room to curl up with a book and hot toddy!

    The Arteriors Home Keifer Side Table (above) makes the perfect match for that comfy chair. The metal cast base has the appearance of petrified wood while the black marble top keeps things classy. Ms. Wooly & Warm knows how versatile this piece is and uses it for everything from side table to plant stand.

    Small Spaces

    What's the smallest space you've ever lived in? I must admit, though I have been an apartment dweller for most of my adult life, I've lived with someone else for many, many years, and recognized that I would probably be the cohabitor from hell if I lived in anything smaller than a one bedroom.

    Small Living Room

    In short, I've never had the good fortune to live in one of those tee tiny studio apartments that are so often featured in design glossies and blogs. And yes, I said "good fortune." Because honestly, I think decorating a tiny little space would be a very fun design challenge! The larger your space gets, the easier it is to collect unnecessary clutter and be coerced into buying furniture you don't really love (or don't even really need). In a small space, every square inch counts! Every piece of modern furniture or stylish light fixtures you choose must have a purpose.
