Because I am moving into a room that's big enough to not need a loft bed, I now need to buy a bedframe. And because I am officially an adultTM, this will clearly be the bed that I die in, so it's a rather important decision. As a result, I'm having a minor anxiety attack.
At first I thought I wanted a really basic blond wood platform bed, like, perhaps, this one:
But then I thought more, and (of course) browsed the Ikea website, and I came across this:
Which is nice and all, but maybe not worth $350? I'd have to see it in person, of course, but I have a slight fear that it might be cheap looking.
To make matters worse, I'm now doubting the whole concept of a blond wood bed, period, because I might end up with a higher ratio of dark furniture than previously expected, and really, which kind of wood would go best with parakeet green walls? Add to this the fact that I just slept in a dark wood bed at The Chelsea that I adored, and, well--this whole adultTM thing is rather hard.
Mostly I just want a bed that's as inconspicuous as possible, with no headboard, that gives me ample storage space in the nether regions. Of course, because of the timing of it all, I'll probably be sleeping on a mattress on the floor for a week, so I suppose that'll give me plenty of time to mull things over.
