Beach House Decor, Beds and other Joinery for Small Spaces

Hi Beach Dwellers
I am still in the process of deciding which way to go with the Big Beach House Brat's bedroom redo.  These Beach House style bedrooms cater for sleeping in smaller spaces for larger numbers of people, so are the perfect solution for holiday homes or generally, if you have lots of guest to stay.  Here is some inspiration from architect, Darren Helgesen, that I love.    His style is cool, relaxed Beach House.  First up are some of his ideas for beds in small spaces. 

I love this one for a holiday home as you can sleep 3 people in such a small space.

These are great for all the under bed storage and look, the bed head is even a cupboard.

This time the bed head has draws

I think this desk for a kids room is fantastic.  Love the bead boarding  and detailing on the shelves. 

This built in desk is for a larger space and looks fabulous with it's built in shelving.

This nautical styled chest of draws is so compact, yet looks like it would hold lots. The inset draw handles are another feature, which I like because they save space and add to the nautical feel.

This is so pretty too

And I just can't go past these fantastic built in book shelves.  This kinds of joinery is really big in Australia too.  Love it.

You can see one of his gorgeous makeover projects, which I recently featured here. 
Today I am linked up here

    B3 has a really small bedroom so we made the most of his space by building in his bed with bookshelves either end for books and toys and storage under the bed.

  7. the beach house we stayed in recently had two bedrooms with the double bed at the bottom and a climb up single bed on the top. When my sons were in college and living in little tiny bedrooms, they got very creative with their beds and desk set up. Love all that you showed us today. xo

  8. I swoon! Bead boarding, white and natural timbers... dreamy sigh. You.d about feel like you were on holiday every day if you had a room like that! (I'm sure the trick is keeping it that way! ;) )
