Versatile Space

Two built-in bunk beds with orange, white and navy-blue bedding are a major component of this multi-purpose bunk room made for reading, resting and doing homework.

Punch of Pattern

A rectangular crème and blue print pillow adds color and pattern to each of the bunk room’s twin beds.

Integrated Storage

Recessed shelving behind each bunk bed offers space for a clock, framed photos, potted plants and books for bedtime reading.

Built-In Bunk Beds

The custom built-in bunk beds, made with shiplap painted white, have strong lines that add architectural interest. “To your eye, the beds look linear and like a piece of the room in there,” says project manager Scott Branscom. 

A Look Outside

A window by the bunk beds looks out to the home’s screened porch, with an orange Roman shade that blocks light and adds privacy when desired. 

Rustic Magazine Rack

A primitive reclaimed ladder hanging on the bunk bedroom wall creates a rustic rack for HGTV Magazines.

Flexible Seating

Three cubic design ottomans with finely crafted wood base and covered in authentic goat hide offer flexible seating that can be moved around the bunk room.

Composed Mix

Designer Brian Patrick Flynn says this bunk room has a traveled feel, with a selection of books and eclectic décor that gives the space a collected look.

Chic Ceiling Lamp

The bunk room’s modern ceiling lamp made of carbonized steel construction with a white finish features three fixed arms with different lengths, with scoop-like shades that can be adjusted up or down or side-to-side to direct the lighting.

Midcentury Style

A midcentury-style two-drawer console table acts as a desk, with custom art above that sits between two historic windows. All of the home’s historic windows were made mechanically sound and glass was replaced where needed.

Local Flavor Art

The custom piece of wall art by Celery Jones above the desk area celebrates the Sunsphere at World’s Fair Park that is an iconic feature of the Knoxville skyline.

Comfort and Style

An ergonomic orange desk chair offers comfortable seating and midcentury modern style. A classic modern floor lamp with dark graphite finish features a boom-arm design that offers adjustable illumination. 

Beautiful Bookshelves

Two ladder bookshelves with white tops, pecan wood finish and contemporary midcentury style offer open storage for books and collectibles. 

Nice Prize

A $50,000 check is part of the exciting prize package for the HGTV Urban Oasis 2017 Giveaway.

Stylish Seating

A handcrafted 1970s-inspired leather and wood sling chair, paired with a white marble tulip-style side table by one of the bunk room windows, offers a stylish spot for reading and relaxing.

Touch of Whimsy

An aluminum, wall-mounted, white and silver deer with a fun bow tie offers a handsome and whimsical addition to the bunk room.

Practical Floor Plan

This view from the bunk room shows the inviting master bedroom located just across the hall.

Light and Bright

The historic windows in this bunk room flood the space with lots of natural light, while tailored window treatments add a touch of sophistication.

Handsome Hardwood

An American White Oak floor adds a rich look and anchors this multi-purpose bunk room, which gives the Craftsman home extra space for reading and sleeping in comfort.
