Where we sleep

I saw that Tiffanie was participating in Kelly's Where You Sleep series, so I jumped in too!

Our house is tiny.

TINE.... EY.

So when you cram a King Size Bed, Dresser, and Armoir into a room, it results in this:
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Silver Chain

In which I have to turn sideways to get to my side of the bed.
This is exactly what our room looks like RIGHT NOW. I took the photo and uploaded it in the same 5 min (hey the baby is napping, time is scarce!) I actually made the bed today, there is crap on the dresser, scarves I can only wear 1 month of the year on the armoir door, and the blinds are up for the cat. I think piglet is also in the window thanks to Logan this morning. Hey - I try to be real with you folks.

My favorite part of our bed are the sweater pillows. I found them on a whim at West Elm.
The coverlet is from Target and I love how thin it is since I am a radiator at night, not to mention body heat from Lee, 2 dogs, and a cat.
See why we have the King size?

The Guest Room, if that's what you call it, is only big enough for a twin bed - so we have a trundle as well.
It has our computer in there and the closet is full of shelving which houses my appliances (mixer, etc). Normally, there is crap (i.e. laundry I don't want to hang up) on the bed.
With the trundle out
 Donald re-painted the night stand and we put some knobs on it from anthropologie. My mom has since left various things in the drawers, since this is essentially her room...
There you have it. Someday maybe we will move to a larger house, but for the next year at least, I will have to turn sideways to get to my bed...

I have to crawl onto the bed to get into it. BUT, totally worth having a king size bed.

Ha - so once Piglet made it out of the toy box, he's been wandering around the house, hither and yonder?

You are so sweet. It's alright to be little bitty...
