Opinions please :)

Ever since I moved in with J, my Queen-sized mattress and boxspring have been so patiently resting on our hardwood bedroom floor. Au lieu of me purchasing a bedframe to elevate us from the floor, my hubby has declared that he will build me a bedframe!! Yippeee, I say! I have seen the magic he can do with his woodworking skills. The guy's a genius! He can make beautiful wood furniture and art. He's just so gosh darn busy though!

Anyway, I'd like something a bit high but not toooo high. It's got to be clean looking- not too old fashioned, but not too modern. It's got to look a little rustic, as our bedroom is in a gorgeous loft with lots of sunshine and lots of open space! Ideally, I'd like to be able to store stuff under the bed in compartments. J said he'd build pull out drawers and try to camouflage them so they won't look too tacky. We don't have much storage space so this would be good.

Here are a few I have been contemplating.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, they'd be greatly appreciated!!

we have a sleigh bed which i really like. the two pictures witht he four post beds were nice too.

Not a fan of the sleigh bed I must say. I do however like the simple haiku bed (can't reember which # photo it is). I think simplicity is key.

I like #4 and maybe if you want it more elevated, your husband can build it a little higher.

PS. I haven't been around in a while Chrissy. My father-in-law was in the hospital but I'm back and visiting blogs again!

I like the third one...very simple and classic, yet still modern.

I like the last one!

I do like 3, 4, and 5. I'm not too keen on the sleigh bed. My parents have one, so it'd remind me of their marital bed. Not something I'd like to think of whilst in bed with my husband! LOL
