Q: My boyfriend and I just moved to a small two-room apartment. The smaller room looks nice and bright, but the larger one — even though it has a glass door to the terrace — is a bit dark. We thought it would be a waste to put a wardrobe and bed in the sunnier smaller room and to not use it by daylight.

So we are planning on combining a small office and a dining area in the small room, and using the larger room as a bed- and living room. The problem is, we are now told by an interior designer, who is helping us on planning the larger room, that it is too small for a bed-and-living-room combination (see his drawing). He wants us to combine the dining- and living area in the larger room instead.

The larger room has the dimensions 15.58 x 14.07 feet. (It's the room pictured above, with some of our furniture drawn in. We first wanted to have a loft bed, but were told that our ceiling was too low (8 feet 4 inches). Since we saw many cool small places here, we thought that someone could give us a second opinion on this. Any suggestions?

Thank you very much!
