The Bromeliads started out life in a 350-foot studio apartment. We slept on a murphy bed, which made tidying up in the morning a snap (literally). Also our "bedroom" instantly converted into a living room as soon as the bed was put up.
However, a bed planted firmly in the middle of the living room doesn't always look so bad either. Take for example the living room of uber designer Thomas O'Brien. Technically it's not a studio aparment; he chose to put the bed in the living room and turned the bedroom into an office/dressing room.
He even serves dinner at the foot of the bed. Below are a few more bed-in- a-living-area combos that I could live with.
Have you ever lived in a studio apartment? What did you do with your bed?
