Seven Reasons George Washington Would Be Happy Sleeping Here

As we all know, George Washington traveled quite a bit. When I selected my favorite types of beds from the ultra-glamorous to the sophisticated to the casual, I searched for reinvented traditional designs that create fresh and current looks.

No matter what décor you may have, one could fit perfectly in your home.  I think they would have delighted George Washington and I think they will delight you too.  See for yourself. Here are seven examples:

#1.  This bed sings to me of old Hollywood glamour. Can’t you just see Greta Garbo draped across this? Made of Australian walnut with textured tinted mirror, glass panels, a quilted satin head board and foot board; this bed is so magnificent.

#2.  This bed fit for a queen, has a carved white lacquer frame, tufted head board and metal buttons. The regal feel of this bed reminds me of a crown.

#3.  This bed has such a magical feel to it, looking as if it has come right out of a fairy tale book. I love the rod iron canopy and detail in the headboard.

#4.  This bed is so elegant. Although this look has been done many times, it is such a classic and beautiful one I can see this being placed in any type of room décor.

#5.  This Palm Four Post bed has such a tropical feel to it. This would be the perfect bed for any beach house setting.

#6.  This bed was one that I had custom designed for the Westchester Designer Show House. The head board and foot board details were picked up from the pattern in the rug, tying the entire décor of the room together.

#7.  The Montecito Bed has an Arabian influence in the design which exudes an exotic feel. I am in love with the gray wash of the wood, which is unexpected because it has taken such a traditional looking bed and applied a more current finish to it.

Interior Designer, Alexa Hampton, says it, “the job of the designer is to be a filter for clients, distilling their best impulses to create beautiful, functional rooms.” All of these beds are beautiful, functional and would fulfill anyone’s best impulses. I am sure George W. would agree.

To me, the combination of beauty and function is what Interior Design is all about.  Here are some I have distilled from the best impulses of my clients on my website.
