Mission-Style Daybeds

Use functional, double-duty seating options.

Custom-made beds in this former schoolhouse-turned-cottage work as seating by day and as a sleeping area for guests at night. Simple hand-woven blankets add texture. The floors were once orange, but owner Carmen Dunjko layered on translucent white paint and then hand-brushed the boards with steel wool for a time-scarred patina. A worn desk and chair continue the schoolhouse theme.
