Name: Desmond (4)
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Desmond's room is very small - under 80 square feet with odd nooks, a closet that sticks out, and a large window. It was a perfect nursery, but when we needed to adjust the design for a twin size bed we were stumped for a while.
We decided to make the nook his feature wall by pasting vintage maps onto it. We placed a low bed against the feature wall and added a wall mount lamp to save space. Because the bed was sticking into the room I got one without a foot board.
We combined old and new items and wall-mounted as many things as possible to save space. The wall behind the door was transformed into a full-height chalkboard wall. I also painted the ceiling and the walls the same pale blue colour to make the room feel bigger.
We kept a bit of a travel theme and added some rustic items and pops of red.
