Attic Conversion

My husband and I talk about ways to add more space to our modest colonial if we decide to stay here long term. One thing we've tossed around is converting our attic space into something usable.  Whether it be a home office, a playroom, master bedroom, or just a place to go for some R&R, there are many possibilities.  Here are some images that have inspired me to think about the space differently.

I love that this room could serve multiple purposes - a guest room, playroom and even storage space using the underbid drawers.  The carpet really warms up the space and the light colors and fun wallpaper keep it light and airy. Photo via My Domaine, design by Shannon Wollack and Brittany Zwickl

How moody is this bedroom? I love the wallpapered accent wall and how they used sconces vs. table lamps to not overwhelm the area around the bed. Image via A Joyful Journey

It doesn't look like they did much to turn this attic into a playroom.  Just a coat of paint on the existing wood board walls and floor.  Very cute, rustic and functional! Image via Domino

I would love to cozy up with a good book and blanket here. I'd add a rug though to make it feel a bit warmer. Image via: Pinterest

This bohemian office is awesome.  A great place to get creative and get some work done! Image via Refinery29
