Funky Bunk Designs

by Christine Hart

If you’re helping a teen redecorate his or her bedroom, consider contemporary bunk beds for the colorful, distinctive styles and creative layout possibilities.

To make the most of your space and to choose the design that will delight your teen, there are several imaginative types of bunk frames you’ll want to browse. These bunk bed frame styles are great for inspiration while you’re in the idea-generating phase.

Funky Bunk Styles:

  • Loft bunks (just 1 bed on top)
  • Bunks with stairs (instead of a ladder)
  • Bunks with desks
  • Triple bunks

Rockin’ & Vibrant

Nothing says urban or edgy like bold blacks, paired with intense vivid color. Look for collections that come in multiple finishes to achieve this look. You’ll have a coordinated style, without committing to a complete bedroom set in one strong color. Browse Lea bunk beds from collections like My Style (shown above).

Soft & Subtle

Alternately, your teen might be into the softer side of design, and you’ll find bunks for this look too. Try the Secret Garden Collection (shown above with a pink loft bunk). Just the name can inspire more décor accents to really personalize the room. Think vine decals, a skeleton key-shaped wall rack – for keys or jewelry – and a wicker chair on the side.

Adaptable Foundations

Bunk beds are such a versatile design choice, you might opt for an understated finish that lets other interior accents establish your theme. In those cases, look for natural shades of wood, choosing the unique layout that best fits your space before you decide on the colors and shapes to surround it.

Reupholstering an Ottoman

I’ve noticed so many fun, colorful ottomans lately. It seems like a great way to add a splash of color or pattern to your living room. I’m thinking about having our yellow ottoman reupholstered and currently researching the least expensive way to do this. Here is just a little inspiration…

This purple one is my FAVORITE. I love the look of it against the zebra patttern cowhide. see the home it is in here

Grey Stripes

I am so in love with striped walls, and thinking about trying some stripes in my office or living room. I cannot decide if I like subtle grey or black better. If you scroll down here you may even be inspired by the magenta striped dining room!

Don’t you love finding little gems on Etsy? These acrylic paintings are by Britthermann. I love how the flowers look as if they were painted on blackboards!

Fall Scents

Some of my favorite things about autumn include cool breezes through the house, hot soups, and scented candles. These natural soy candles by Luminology look so pretty on the window ledge.

My pick is the Orchard 3-set…comice pear, brandy, & cumin, mmmmm!
