Design Crisis: Bedroom

SPACESLauren CaronComment

How come whenever I have a question about what to do in my apartment I can't find any answers?  I have to super search for what I'm looking for. This time its what to do when you have a really long, narrow room. How do you incorporate your bed? below is my apartment's floor plan. The layout is how it was when I moved in, which for a while worked.

Last night however, I decided I hated my bedroom and needed a change.  I moved my bed against the back wall, with the window.  I'm fighting the feng shui in every way possible, but really there's nothing else I can do. I've tried them all.  I checked out a few images on Apartment therapy that showed a bed in front of a window and some I liked, others I did not. I was thinking about making the curtain go all the way across, but the one image that really bugged me was the one that had those curtains.



The empty room before my bf built the wall.

This moving my bed around has also made me think about how I do live in New York and a lot of time when you live in a small space you have to just give up what you ideally would want  your place to look like and actually do what looks best for your space.
