closet hideaway...





To get to this beautiful, light-filled bedroom, the owner has to go through a closet and slip sideways into the room, a space just wide enough to get a mattress through! The tiny bedroom is full of gorgeous elements like a crystal chandelier, a caramel-coloured ceiling, and so many pretty things from unique frames to a mini dresser with black trim on it's little drawers... isn't that such a fun item? Built-in shelves act as an office space as well...

I don't know about having to walk through a closet each day, but this sure is one gorgeous room, don't you think?

Oh how I love that ceiling! It seems like the perfect place to spend a rainy day, so cozy and lovely.

Wow I've never seen anything like it! How crazy, such a small room. But it looks fantastic and very cozy. Love the beautiful details! You really have to be a structured person sleeping there and don't turn it into a mess;)

aaaaaaah! I have this chandelier in my family room! My sister in law moved into an old house and I had my eye on that sucker from day 1! She didn't want it, so I offered her $75 for it! Now...it is one my favorite pieces in my house!
beautiful!

Ever since I was a wee one, I've been captivated by tiny spaces. This post took me back to childhood dreams. It is as though you snuck into my head and went tada!
I would happily walk through a closet if this room was awaiting me at the end of the passage. Magical.

This room is amazing!! so chic and yet so tiny!! It goes to show you it's not about the size of a space but what you do with it!!

Walking through the closet wouldn't bother me. It's the stepping sideways that would scream "AWKWARD". But this is making lemonade out of itty bitty lemons. Making it work with a lot of style.

Wow! Congrats to whoever didn't give up on this tiny space and made it beautiful instead. I wonder what size mattress that is and if it's turned sideways.

Definitely a small space, but also a great use of space! The shelves for an office are so practical and that chest of drawers is lovely!

That is such a beautiful room! Very inspirational, especially when all I can currently afford is the rental on tiny box rooms!

Seriously in LOVE with this hideaway! Can I have one in my apartment :)

Aren't all of the details beautiful? And that chandelier - gorgeous!

How perfect! It's like a little secret haven. How darling. Such attention to details.

Wouldn't this be sweet for a young girl to escape from the brothers? Lots of goodness in this tiny space, but I don't know one woman who could do this (at least none in Texas). xx's

Yes, true style doesn't need a lot of space. Love the ceiling and the darker details on the walls and window. The studs on the shelves are also brilliant.

LOVE LOVE!!

I LOVE this room. Like a little playroom getaway for adults! I am going to have a room of my own like this one day....:)

oh my goodness I love it! Great design idea to paint the ceiling and draw your eye UP instead of across the room! Great post!
