While the idea of attic living sounds fabulous, ensure that you are ready for the transition from the main floor. While many people enjoy their master bedroom at the top of the house for the serenity, many don't enjoy the climb up the stairs. If you have small children, you may not want to be far removed on another floor. While if you have teenagers and a large family, the attic may be exactly what you need! Assess your family lifestyle and the layout of your attic in relation to other parts of the home to decide if a master bedroom attic will fit.

Back in the days, wealthy people would add their luxuriously carved canopy beds to the will, leaving their beloved dreamland to be enjoyed and admired by future generations. Now, we get to enjoy past examples and contribute our own designs to the history of this fascinating bed.
The living room is spacious and includes not only a living space but also a dining one and a playroom for the kids. Scandinavian style supposes lots of light and light shades, so the walls were painted white, and the original oak floor was restored. It was sanded, painted and refinished, so the wood grain was still visible. The original large window was also restored to flood the room with light. The fireplace divided the space into two parts: a living room and a dining room.
Neutrals or moodies? Choose the shades of grey to your liking: from very light and subtle to dark charcoals and almost black to create an ambience that you like.
