I'm willing to bet that most people, no matter where they live, if asked to draw a house will draw something with a pitched roof, a little bit like this. I think there's something about a steeply pitched roof that feels deeply comforting to us, so much so that it has become part of our very idea of home. Which might help explain the appeal of these attic bedrooms: tucked away under the eaves, they just feel so lovely and cozy (and maybe soaring and dramatic, too, as in the case of the bedroom above). Here are 12 spaces to inspire your home remodel — or just your home dreams.
