When something appears in three’s it is a trend, or so they say. What does it mean when something pops up everywhere you freakin’ look? I call it a damn good idea. And right now that’s what I’m saying about daybeds!
What was once your grandmother’s decorating idea has gotten the cool girl stamp of approval and personally, I’m into the modern update on this old school idea. Just look at how much you can do with it.
Sure, couches serve their purpose. They’re a requirement for TV watching and the like, but a daybed feels so luxurious. It’s a place to lounge, relax, cozy up. Work from home? Doing so from a day bed suddenly makes the day’s to-do list feel less tedious.
I’m also smitten by the variety of style directions you can take with a daybed. There’s one for virtually every aesthetic out there. You can go modern, clean and crisp (like this one), totally boho (this one is good), or a try a mid century modern vibe (like this). And of course I’m in support of any excuse to add more pillows and throw blankets into the mix. Mudcloth heaven, here I come.
There’s also something overtly feminine about daybeds, don’t you think? Can you envision a guy ever sitting in one? I’m struggling. So go ahead, let him take over the couch and claim this space as your very own.
As we ready ourselves to move into the new house I’m plotting where a daybed could possibly fit. Perhaps the living room? Maybe the guest room? Maybe the nursery?? You’ll have to stay tuned to find out where I put one. Because this is a design idea bandwagon I’m jumping on with both feet!
