sleep over

When I was little we had a farm outside of the city where we would go every weekend.  On it was an old farmhouse that my parents lovingly restored.  A steep set of stairs lead to a giant open attic that ran the length of the house.  It had sloped ceilings and dormer windows.  My parents painted it sunny yellow and put 6 twin beds in it.  Pine chests at the end of each bed were full of toys and treasures. 

A few simple throw rugs and colorful vintage quilts made for a special hideaway for my sister and I. 

I have been thinking about that room lately and thought I would share a few images of bunk rooms I have been collecting this past few weeks.  Whether bunks or twin bed nooks, there is something magical about a room like this.  

Lots of memories and a sense of adventure are created in a space 
made just for kids tucked away from the rest of the house.  

Here's to summer nights and flashlights under the covers.
