This image is giving me some new ideas. Liking the elevated bed and added storage. The raised surface looks to be 10"-12" inches wider than the mattress.
Built-in beds in a row can take advantage of an otherwise awkward space in the attic & is perfect for sleeping multiple kids in one room. The children can personalize the area around their bed nooks.
I've wanted an Omersa animal since I was a little girl. It's so great in this child's room. Would mine try to ride it, draw on it, and chew off it's ears? Maybe it would live in the LR for a bit. I'm a fan of the hippo and pig, but my heart is with the elephant.
