I finished up a nursery design yesterday..children's spaces are so fun to create.
We are using a day bed in the room. I love to devise not only gorgeous spaces but flexible and functional environments too. Every child needs a crib but investing in pieces that can grow with your child is always a smart idea!

The room design got me thinking about day beds.... They are the perfect spot for lounging but also function well as a guest bed and/or a bed for your babe in the future. There are versions for almost any style preference. Here is a peek at some of my favorite uses!

 In an office that doubles as a guest room:

I am using a day bed similar to this one in the nursery design.
If you're up for the challenge, construct your own

I am the biggest fan of daybeds and love them especially in a nursery. Know the one you finished is amazing!
