A cleverly hidden Murphy bed helps this pretty guest room do double duty as a yoga studio.
How do you transform a barely used guest room into a space with everyday function? If you’re Calgary designers Reena Sotropa and Alanna Dunn of Corea Sotropa Interior Design, you hide a Murphy bed behind a glitzy mirror (with the help of a custom millworker and framer) and turn the space into a bright and beautiful at-home yoga studio.“When the bed’s folded up, it can leave a big blank swath of wall, but this mirror adds interest and function,” says Sotropa. And up on the ceiling, a dreamy Trove wall-paper with a feminine print offers a soothing focal point, whether you’re lying in bed or practising savasana.
