How To Design Shared Bedroom For Two Single Ladies?

Good Questions

Q: My best friend and I were looking to move in together. Initially we searched for a two bedroom, but in the neighborhood and building we wanted the price was not realistic. So, we found a beautiful one bedroom that we both absolutely love.

However, now that we are actually in the apartment we have a design dilema. Currently, we are both sleeping on separate air mattresses in the bedroom. Occasionally, I fall asleep on the couch in the living room. But we are ready and looking for permanent sleeping accommodations. My question is this: how can we decorate a medium sized shared bedroom for two young single women? 

We are looking to balance style, comfort, efficiency, and some personal space. Since we're starting from square one, we want to know what sized beds should we look into. Two fulls? Functional futons? Two queens? Is there a way our desk can stay in the bedroom? My online search for design ideas for a two adult shared bedroom proved futile. Please help!
