The last few years have seen a steady increase in the desire of homeowners to move away from cookie-cutter design and glossy contemporary interiors towards a more unassuming stripped-down style.
The barn door is the perfect solution in this regard as it simply slides away ensuring that you need not account for the typical swinging white door. Of course you will still need some wall space for it to slide away but that seems like a fair bargain indeed!

We absolutely love Scandinavian bedrooms that feature a nifty sleigh or platform bed as this instantly becomes the focal point of the room without trying too hard. You can build on this by adding an exposed brick wall that is painted white custom bedside pendants a few black and white posters and an understated nightstand (probably an upcycled piece from an old tree stump) to complete a truly relaxing nature-centric bedroom design that is distinctly Scandinavian.
Plush cowhide rugs accent walls draped in wood and a hint of shimmering copper in the form of a cool pendant light are all trendy ways that you can decorate your Scandinavian bedroom.
With more and more folks opting to live in cozier urban quarters murphy beds have been increasing in popularity as a way to fit all of the necessities of life into a studio apartment.

But not all fold-out beds need to transform into flat walls. If you’re looking for a way to maximize seating as well as sleeping space these sofa murphy beds from Montana Murphy Beds get both jobs done and even feature extra built-in storage on the sides.
