Day Dreams! Sleep Like an Aristocrat

So you wake up and have to go to work. You can only think about when you get to go home and go back to sleep, oh how happy you will be! All day at work you just want to nap. You get home and finally crawl back into your little corner of retreat. Your fabulous bed! Who cares if you are being a recluse! The sheets are silky smooth, your pillows cool to the touch! not to mention the aesthetic pleasures of it all.

Want your bed to be tres fabulous? Want to sleep like a true royal? I did a little look (inspired by my soon-to-be wedded friend Katie) to see exactly how we can sleep like an 18th century Gossip Girl would have! So enjoy!

What is your favorite???


  1. Oooo that's a tough one, but I think I would have to go with this one

  2. Sehr schön.

    I am not an aristocrat, but my bed certainly befits one. The Baroness Waldstätten gave my wife and me a matrimonial bed as a wedding gift. It has a beautiful painted silk headboard; the scene on which is of a shepherdess and shepherd lounging beside a brook. The predominant color is pale blue. Our coverlet is a blue and cream damask with blue and yellow twisted braid fringe.

    I wish that I could send you a picture of it, but the camera has not yet been invented!

  3. I love the first one. I'm glad you posted this, as I'm looking to redecorate my room with an 18th-century French theme!

    1. I have the first one, Court of Versailles, Lyon version in a queen also from Macy's. Unfortunately our current bed is a king; the queen version after cleaning just hangs in the spare room closet. Darn!!!

  4. WHere did you find the bedding for the first one, i love it!

  5. I found it at Macys!
