This is what I call an attic hideaway! I came across these photos over at This Old House and immediately thought what a great use of space. We all know the blows this crazy economy has handed us and even though some of us might need to expand our homes with our growing family, adding on might not be the answer. I have a few friends who are in this predicament at the moment. Looking up (if possible) to the attic is a great solution. This space was broken up by walls into a few smaller rooms. Eliminating the walls and getting creative with storage spaces has resulted in a comfortable bedroom suite. I love the bookcases which surround the staircase and the built in dressers make the space feel even larger. The soft palette and dark floors add to the airy feeling. Escaping to the attic might just be the best retreat of all!
