Framing a bed with built-in storage not only provides a place to store odd items, but it gives the eye a place to land. "This was an older home where the space had become convoluted over the years with lots of add-ons," says designer Connie Gustafson. "We eliminated some closets and opened up the space to make a nice master suite. We designed this shelving specifically so the bed could fit right in." The simple architectural details on the built-ins match the character of the home, and drapery tassels on the doorknobs add a polished look.
