How would you set this up??

January 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm moving on Thursday to a wonderful new spot and I'm seeking some advice or ideas that could help make this space great for entertaining and still functional for a young professional couple (and our pup Stella). I need to some how make the sleeping area private. Curtains? shelving? ..... looking for ideas! Any help would be greatly appreciated by a young girl trying to make a tiny apartment a cool place for everyone to hang out.

A folding screen or bookcase behind headboard. Bed facing wall.

Ikea sells panels that move on a track - then you could close off the sleeping area when you wanted to and leave it open the rest of the time

Sara, Is this a rental? Can you make physical changes or do you need to stick to decorative ideas.

Yes it's a rental so I need decorative ideas. Still having a hard time figuring out a nice layout for furniture.

Because you could, if you are a little bit handy with your tools - make a bench seating and table area in there - that can also be a bed !
Or you could add a Murphy bed there ?
Or if there's enough ceiling height you could have a high level bed there and more storage under it ?!

Ya I wanted to put it there but I have a queen bed and its an inch too big for the space. I have it in the alcove right now but it sticks out about a foot and a half from the wall.
