What about a hanging bed? It can be as high or low as you want. Throw pillows would work good for the window seat. Really not sire what your asking...Lol.

Check out pinterest, search for teen rooms. They have the neatest ideas.

Also, you are looking for a platform bed, a LOT of people make them from palettes, if you can mess with them you can even give her under bed storage.

Really, I would just look at thrift stores and repurposing things. Like I said pinterest has awesome ideas, and often tutorials that show hoe to do it the easy cheap way, but looks great.

I was just giving an example of the platform beds.

what does she really like? Maybe try google image. I know that's kind of lame, but I find the best stuff that way, I'm not very original lol.

She wants her room to have like a hippie vibe. She likes mismatched brown wood furniture.

She is what I'd calla hipster but she hates when I call her that and says she's not one.

She loves all kinds of music from the Beatles to Arctic monkeys and Mumford and Sons and everything in between.

Let me put it this way. Her dream car is a red and white 1967 Volkswagen bus. LOL

What about a simple platform bed? They make them now with drawers underneath and stuff. More storage is always a plus.
