Day beds for dreaming

I love seeing a daybed incorporated into a homes decor, makes me want to stretch out a few walls in this "wee" little rental we are living in just to indulge my daybed fantasies...

There are so many styles of daybed around, formal, casual, practical, indoor or outdoor. Something to suit any home & budget.
Backless daybeds are great for adding extra seating & although they don't take don't take up much visual space you really would need a large room to accommodate one.

This classic style is timeless & very inviting.

How awesome does this one look with all the built ins surrounding it.
 A fabulous addition to any child's room or even a guest bedroom.
 A quick change of fabric choice & trim colour on the window dressings & the whole look is transformed.
 Now thats perfect for people like me that can never make a long term commitment to any colour!!!

Dream child No2  always dreamt of a bed just like this as she was growing up & unfortunately never got to own one, now she is about to turn 17 & has been designing a large round bed, but has yet to convince the dream guy to build it for her !

Oh the storage, sweet sweet storage, no trouble for the kids to pack up the mess in this toy room.

Loved looking through your blog. I am coming to live with you in your dream house. Just like I told you today I would. Or maybe you might just have to help style mine when I actually dream it up. :-)
