Daybed with storage, perfect for the nursery, on those nights when baby is up 100 times, so I can be close. Then will be baby's bed when the crib gets too small. Covered in coordinating throw pillow, I can just see the grey, shades of blue (especially the ikat) now.
When creating a new attic/loft space, think about keeping a wall of exposed bricks and using it as part of your decoration. Look how stylish it looks against a backdrop of otherwise fairly muted colours - it all works together perfectly.
