So I have a pair of twin beds that I have inherited. They belonged to my grandparents and I have put them in one of our guest bedrooms. While I realized that they are not the most practical beds for guests, I think that there is something so charming about twin beds. Here are some great examples of why twin beds are so awesome!!!
This one is my absolute favorite. I am using it as the inspiration for my guest bedroom.
Here is the problem with having twin beds. All of the bedding out there for twin beds has some sort of child theme to them. I have gone to every store I can think of as well as websites and still have not been able to find anything worth purchasing. The designer in me knows that I am going to have to make custom duvets and pillows, but I am also not willing to pay those kind of prices for a room that we never use. So I have come to a DIY solution: I went to Ross and bought queen-sized sheets. Then I found twin comforters on sale at TJ Max. I am going to take the flat sheet and fitted sheet and sew my own duvet cover. I found a subtle leopard print sheet set that I love because it is playful, but I am not ready to commit to that being the face. So I have decided to create dual sided duvets with the leopard being the back side. Now I am on a hunt to try to find the cutest set of sheets to be the front. Then I will take the shams that come with them and get creative with my pillows. I will keep you posted (literally) on the outcome.
Here is the room so far (please excuse the mess, this room is definitely a work in progress):
