Beds Are EVERYTHING (part 1)

Between the fresh-pressed-and-fluffy  sheets, the heaps of pillows a skydiver might prefer over a parachute, and the acres of space to do with what you please, wouldn’t you sleep in hotel beds every night if you could? And considering the average person sleeps for one third of his/her life (time which could be spent watching The Grand Budapest Hotel ~131,400 times — we love that movie), it’s no surprise that just looking at a well-made bed does to our imagination what a Thanksgiving dinner spread does to our salivary glands.

Here, 10 beds to dream about.

Like the intricately presented dish you receive at a Michelin star restaurant — you know, the one that feels like a crime to fork apart — this room almost seems better admired like fine art.

Honestly, there are about five other photos of five other beds at The King’s Daughter Inn that we could have chosen. Basically, you can’t go wrong. Just look at that headboard.

250 Main Hotel, Rockland, ME

Can’t you imagine lazing around with a crossword and the local arts guide, a glass of orange juice on the bedside table and the French press just about ready to pour?


Hotel Andra, Seattle, WA

Sleek radio: dialed in. Sexy bedside lighting: on it. Stylish bedding: obviously, this is Seattle. Fresh flowers: naturally.


Sunset Marquis, West Hollywood, CA

Nothing says rock-star status like a gilded teddy bear. Only question: do rock stars sleep?
