The challenge and the solution


One bedroom to be shared in two.

There was too little storage space in the apartment.

Better room to let the art come forward.


The bedroom was divided using two bookshelves.

The bed was placed on top of three dressers and a closet.

A separate shelf for changing “art exhibits” was mounted.

The solution was to divide that space into two. Using two billy bookshelves from Ikea, there was a bedroom on one side and a children’s room on the other side. The back of the shelves was dressed with a thin MDF plate, which was then taped. The bed is a frame mattress placed on top of three dressers and a kitchen sink. For safety, the mattress is also mounted on barges in the wall.

– I’m sleeping on my closet. A feng shui expert would probably dislike it, but I’m actually sleeping impeccably, says Rasmussen.
