The six-year-old in our family had his birthday last month – my first time trying out the big slide in the bouncy house. He has a bunk bed in his room and his 4-year old sister is waiting for the delivery her big-girl bed next week. So naturally these double built-in bunk beds for kids caught my eye. They couldn’t be more adorable, or practical.
A real-life story of how the sleek double bunks [top] were built for a family with three boys is charmingly reported by the Mom who wrote the
August Fields blog. Before and after photos were included and she explained that her boys love the boldly striped West Elm duvets. Stairs make access handy and, she says, the beds are easy to make. However, the blog no longer seems to be online.
A variation on the theme includes two twins with balcony bunks in a similar khaki-green scheme but this one accented by red, including a colorful ladder.
Another quartet, installed on a corner, has staggered bunks with storage below one set. Looking closely, it’s interesting to see how well thought out this arrangement is – from the pierced detailing on the frames to a recessed area at the head of each bed with enough space for a basket to store necessities and perhaps a few favorite toys.
The dreamy blue and white color scheme, plus the nautical accents on these bunks make this look perfect for any beach house – even one in the woods.
