So are our beds!
As a designer, I have seen so many different styles and types of beds and bedrooms. The good, bad and the downright sad.
I might have done a post on this already…but it’s worth repeating!
I LOVE MY BED…and so should you!
I feel that beds are a reflection of not only our style but also an expression of how we see ourselves.
They should never be too overdressed or pretentious. Never sloppy or unkempt. But, somewhere in the middle of not being too uptight or too utilitarian.
If beds need to have a system of placed perfection…that’s way too uptight for me.
A militant stance of organized and untouched stacked pillows. Constantly on guard in fear that if someone sits on the bed, it would ruin the whole presentation.
Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy a well-presented bed. I just prefer a more casual elegance presentation. A un-maid (pun intended) bed.
And yes, I do enjoy that it’s made daily. I just prefer it to resemble the look and feel as though the turndown service was completed. And it’s ready to climb into, it at a moments notice.
And on the days of freshly washed sheets. Simply sublime!
In fact…I can’t even seem to climb into my bed unless that fitted sheet is pulled tight again every time it’s made. Reinsuring a wonderful nights sleep.
Bedrooms like all rooms should be admired. They should entice and draw you into them, like a great seduction. Welcoming you every night or day. Perhaps even in the middle of the day. Being available for those moments when you just need a minute.
Then there are those days…when you just don’t feel like getting out of bed at all.
Or worse yet, those days when you have to get up at the crack of stupid. And just the thought of separating yourself from the warmth and comfort of that blanket fort of safety…is way to painful to handle.
Or how about those moments where the bliss from your dreams are still playing out in your mind’s eye. And that stinging factor of knowing that the moment your toe touches the floor…reality begins again.
Or how about the most terrorizing times of all getting out bed in the winter or in extremely cold climates.
Stop the madness! That’s way too much handle. That’s when the blanket has come with you from room to room!
There are glamour bedrooms.
Even some that others would find cheesy!
But our beds like our homes should be our sanctuaries. Open, welcoming and filled with joy and especially peace!
Namast’ay…in bed! Especially on a random Sunday just because you want too!
