This is Lily's very first Ikea hack and it's a nice one. Clever use of Billy bookcases to section out a 'sleeping area' and create storage. Definitely a snuggle-worthy corner.
She says, "I'm renting this large one space studio but didn't like the idea of having my bed in the living room as well as in the kitchen so I came up with the idea of a room divider. Since I also had a lack of storage for books etc I decided to purchase five Billy's (4 large and one small) to create a 'sleeping corner'. The position of the bookcases also makes kind of a hallway. The first Billy closest to the entrance door is a small one that I use as a place for key/mail/umbrella. A few months later I found two green glass kitchen doors (Rubrik) at the as-is corner which were then fixed to the bottom shelves to serve as a shoe cabinet.
For the sleeping corner on the other side, the backs of the Billy's are simply covered with some leftover paint, with colors matching my favorite bed linen. I hung a Hoppy lamp (by Dark) at the top to create some special light effects.
