I have three small kids and have recently come face to face with the ugly reality that I might need to invest in some bunk beds. Not my favorite look, aesthetically speaking, but oh so useful and necessary for the endless stream of overnight guests and visitors. If I had to buy bunk beds, I knew I wanted something different. Practical, but still beautiful. I wasn’t sure that such a bunkbed existed–my experience with these space-savers consisted of the metal atrocities I encountered at camp and college. But luckily for all of us, in the year 2012, if you look hard enough, anything is possible. Below are some of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!
