To Sleep

We've been obsessed lately with beds for the house in NH. A bit tired of sleeping on a mattress on the floor and having our guests sleep on an air mattress, we've looked high and low for antique beds. We now have seven, a few of which have custom mattresses (thank you Norwalk Mattress Company) - here are two, with some inspiration:

1845 Knit night caps at Kerry Taylor Auctions, London

Andrew Wyeth, Marriage

19th c Rope bed with acorn finials we picked up in Vermont

Shaker bedroom via Remodelista

The mattress is spectacular (rug too) at Howe, London

Homespun Mattress Tick at Cowan's

Albert Hadley room from House Beautiful 2009

1860's Sleeping gown at FID Museum, LA

Gorgeous 3/4 rope bed we found last week in Manhattan

Shaker bedroom at Pleasant Hill via Traveling Boy
