We are delighted to welcome And So To Bed as sponsors for BlogTour London. And So To Bed are, after all, dedicated to one of our favourite places.
We love bedrooms. For us, a good bedroom is a sanctuary of peace and personal style away from the social spaces of the rest of the home. Bedrooms are only shared with special people. No other space in a home reflects someones true personality, character and style than their bedroom. And So To Bed is a temple to the art of the beautiful bedroom. Just look at their Flagship store in London’s Kings Road. And what’s inside is just as stylish. And, would this be a good time to mention to our American readers, And So To Bed can now be found in the States?
These are a couple of our favourite And So To Bed pieces. The top image shows their Versailles Bed available in Gold or Silver leaf. The detail on this is exquisite. And then there is the Handel Luxury Metal Bed with cast iron straps fashioned to look like leather. A little something for the horsey folk out there?
So what does your bed say about you? While you are pondering that one have a look at The magnificent Georgian Four Poster above and the, to my view, more feminine Corbiere Bed, based on a French classic with its hand woven cane.
I have always thought that the bed should be the star of any bedroom and everything else should be kept to a minimum. That said, when you see And So To Bed’s other bedroom furniture, well maybe my argument needs some revision. Two cabinets and a mirror that make me want more furniture in my bedroom. How pretty is the Floral Bedside Chest shown above. Inspired, we are told, by Marie Antoinette’s personal furniture collection. The chest of drawers in the middle is the Claudette Chest of Drawers by Nina Campbell with a distinct hint of the 1920s and the Manoir Cheval Mirror is a very elegant piece. But can anyone tell me what people keep in that little drawer? I love how personal bedrooms are.
Having already gone way over length for this post I couldn’t leave you without a couple of bespoke beds commissioned from And So To Bed. The Gothic Gazebo Bed and certainly the Silver Shell Bed were commissioned, we are willing to bet, by people who, at least in the bedroom, wouldn’t be described as shy and retiring. In fact, if you visited Decorex last year you may recognise the Solver Shell Bed.
Here it is again as the star of Nicky Haslam’s design for the show entrance. So what does your bedroom say about you and, as you look through the extensive and highly desirable range available at And So To Bed, what do you want it to say?
