Meanwhile: still growing the red bed room

Standard

The bed itself

The whole mattress area is a removable pallet so that lots and lots of wiring from this side of the whole house can be accessed in the future should the need arise.

And now I’ve finished it (that is the bed) I think. It and the bed posts, curtains and pillows are set in place.

Although the edges of the bed have been in shot in other photos, the last time we saw bed in full it looked like this:

Red Bed position in relation to this area of the house. Just a bed head and one wall so far.  It does show the bed platform which is in two pieces divided across the centre.

Bed plus

This is at the stage of trying out alternatives for furniture and draping fabric here and there to get a feel for what’s happening.

Need for bedposts – or something

The removable front section

If you look to each side of the ‘would be’ bed curtains in the above pics you can see there are undressed uprights and a gap to each side.  Bedposts seem the easiest way to dress the area

The bedposts need to be as far away from the bed as possible. Not making any sense? Well the front section of the room (see photo) is removable and will have the bedposts attached along with the LED light set to pick out the underside of the canopy. But the curtains for the end of the bed don’t want to foul the bedposts too much and/or cover the light.

One dressed bed with its bits and pieces

Whilst this one is taken with only the miniature room lights, shows up some of the detail of the bed canopy OK even if it does spill on the left-hand curtain too.
