guest room dreams

I'm back! Sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of months but a lot has been going on including some exciting design things I hope to share with you soon! But for right now I can't stop looking forward to the day when we will have a guest bedroom and I've decided that when we do I would love to have a daybed! Daybeds are a great space saver and can double as a couch during the day and a place for guests to sleep at night. A trundle bed fits perfectly under most day beds, or if you are only in need of room for one it can double as storage space! I love these from pottery barn and especially love the way they've set them up with coffee tables in front so they really look like a space where one could lounge during the day and enjoy a good book or cup of tea. Of course when I was looking at the pottery barn beds my smile was followed by a frown when I saw the price..but then I was so happy to see that IKEA has one that looks very similar and is about 1/6th the price! At $179 the Tromsnes white day bed frame is totally in my budget!
