One of the challenges of studio living is the sleeping arrangements and there are many ways to go - from murphy beds to sleeper sofas to curtained or otherwise-partitioned off bed areas.

...and focus instead on making it a stylish, well-integrated part of your home. For inspiration, we pulled ten real-life examples from Small Cool 2009 that do just that - enjoy!
