This week on the blog we are revisiting our #IHAspenRidgeLoft murphy bed project! This has been one of the most popular projects that we’ve had the pleasure of working on. So popular, in fact, that people reach out to us with questions about it almost every other week! This murphy bed has had articles written about it in seven different languages in publications worldwide (you’d think it was a Kardashian…)!

This project was completed in 2014 by Reena and Alanna. Our clients were downsizing from their estate home and moving into an inner city townhouse loft. They wanted to make sure that every room in the house had a purpose and would be visited regularly. Together, we decided to create a space that could double as both an exercise room and a guest bedroom.

Since we have had such a continued interest in the details of this particular design, we thought that we would share a few FAQ’s with you:



Where can I buy this murphy bed millwork?

A: All the millwork you see in this space, including the murphy bed wall and window bench, were custom made for this space by our talented millworker, Peppertree Studio. So in other words, this is not a prefab product that is for sale.

How do you pull the murphy bed down from the wall?

A: The frame of the mirror bevels off of the wall to create a 2.5″ deep “handle” to pull the bed down.

Where can I buy this mirror?

A: This mirror was custom made specifically for this application by our friends James at Corner Framing Studio here in Calgary.

Is the mirror tempered?

A: Yes! The glass of the mirror is tempered.

What size of bed is this?

A: This is a queen size bed.

Where is this wallpaper from?

A: The wallpaper is from Trove!
