GUEST (BED) HIDEAWAY
Erin’s idea for a Murphy bed, right, in her studio was a no-brainer to avoid overnight guests crashing on the sofa. After installing the bed (which came in 1 million pieces, Erin jokes), she and Ken added IKEA shelves to one side for a builtin vibe and to store guest room sundries. Erin recently added the wall-mounted bolsters to create a headboard for the bed and to narrow the gap between the wall and mattress. Other homey touches include the macramé wall hanging made by friend and fellow blogger Sara Banner, and a wood bead garland and block-print pillow, both of which Erin made.
FAUX-LEATHER STRAPS ATTACHED TO THE WALL BY SCREWS CAN BE UNHOOKED SO THE BOLSTERS SLIDE OUT WHEN THE BED ISPULLED UP.
