I love IKEA. I feel in love with it a long time ago...the first time I walked into the ordinary looking warehouse....only to find myself in the midst of an imagination wonderland...of little tiny mock rooms. I love that style...sleek, modern, clean, super-organized...with a touch of whimsy. It calls to my Virgo, creative nature. I love that you can put together the furniture yourself. I love the cafeteria! And the price!
Okay...this stuff isn't from IKEA. It's from an Italian design company called GAB, but it's very much the same look & feel. I didn't see the ability to order the elements on their site www.gab.it I'm sure it's pretty steep. The same effects could be attained with IKEA elements, or better then that....a few sheets of MDF particle board, a few power tools, and a few spare weekends. Depends how "crafty" one is. But all the elements in these photos are simple easy. It's all in the way they're put together. SPACE-SAVING! That's the key. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that most of these designs play off of one wall...the intelligent use of space! Not just great for kids, either................I'd love every room in my house to look like that!!!
All the stowage anyone could ever want, a bed, desk & chair....all in one, small space...on one wall!
This is great layout for a kids room, a tiny, studio apt, or.....a studio bedroom combo (which is always what I need)!
I love this design. Good for two kids still in the same room. The stairs hide extra storage. Like the picture at right...The bottom bunk could easily be replaced with a couch (fold out maybe), or the desk under bed idea to tighten up the space even more.
These are the same elements, placed differently. You can see how simple the bunk-bed design is. It's all about taking some time to measure, and fit the idea together BEFORE you proceed! Mix and match colors, with natural woods...or buy a gallon of paint, and create a smooth, monochromatic look. Of course.........easy to fall in love with, bcuz all the rooms are so damn CLEAN! 😉
