Imagine the moment when you're finally able to slide into bed after a particularly long day. Sure, it's relaxing enough, but tucking yourself into a super-luxurious bed—whether you envision something crisply tailored or more laid-back—in the bedroom of your dreams really takes that experience to a whole new level.
A good night's sleep doesn't solely rest on a solid bed frame, a fantastic mattress, or amazing sheets (although they do help). Many times, one's ability to count sheep hinges on the feelings inspired by our immediate surroundings (aka the bedroom), and hence, the total package.
Go ahead and picture yourself drifting off in one of these 11 beds, nestled inside their impossibly luxurious bedrooms. Each space inspires reflective respites, quick catnaps, and deep slumbers, ensuring you never feel guilty for hitting that snooze button.
The raw, minimalist Sky Loft in the experimental town of Arcosanti, Arizona, is perched high over a peaceful mesa; a huge, fixed radial window invites guests to feel as one with the outdoor environment. Naturally, the room's rustic, bare-bones elements play second-fiddle to the gorgeous view. But the bed, with its rumpled, blush-hued linen bedding, softens the coarse architectural elements, urging one to curl up and doze for days.
Chic & Eclectic
This eclectic bedroom pulls from a host of styles and eras: The traditional, buttoned-up bed is a calming foil to the modern mirrored pendant and monumental golden structure. (Merely a headboard, or perhaps a closet accessible only from the back and sides? No matter). Crisp, white sheets and lightweight slate-toned blankets are, clearly, all one needs while the home fires are kept burning.
A diminutive, cocoon-like sleeping nook—consisting of a massive bed and little else—feels exactly like a big primary bedroom. Bathed in natural light, it's also dreamily wabi-sabi and romantic thanks to perfectly-imperfect rumpled bedding and gauzy, ethereal panels suspended from above.
The term “Primary Bedroom” is now widely used to describe the largest bedroom in the home, as it better reflects the space’s purpose. Many realtors, architects, interior designers, and the Real Estate Standards Association have recognized the potentially discriminatory connotations in the term “Master.” Read more about our Diversity and Inclusion Pledge.
An impossibly high-ceilinged bedroom is brought back down to earth with a perfectly proportioned floor-to-ceiling upholstered headboard. The room's design is glamorously understated, and the bed itself oozes considered comfort. Every element—from the statement-making chandelier to the floating nightstands and high-pile area rug—provides an elegant, calming wink-worthiness that's tough to beat.
Sometimes all you need is a nice glass of water, a good book, and a reading lamp to make your sleep situation complete. But while the stack of magazines-cum-nightstand may fool you into thinking this bedroom is somehow less-than, the bed is actually anything but. Layers upon layers of pleasingly mismatched bedding in tactile fabrics is a big, opulent explosion of texture and pattern.
Minimalist & Cloudlike
Many minimalist bedrooms come off as cold and unwelcoming. Here, however, simplicity is actually a superpower. Muted tones, as well as a channel-tufted headboard running the length of the space, call to mind big, fluffy clouds that anchor the bed in cushiony softness. Little to no visual noise cinches a tranquil respite.
Clean & Crisp
This Scandinavian-inspired bedroom in Amagansett, New York is delightfully pared-down. A graphic pink circle, drawing the eye up toward the beachy rafters, reminds us of the sun (rising or setting; your choice). Fresh, white sheets and a chunky, weighted blanket draped over the foot of the bed promise deep relaxation and halcyon dreams.
Sleek & Spartan
Hotel vibes for the win: A bedroom with built-in everything (aka the headboard, nightstands, reading lamps, and shelves) makes quite an architectural statement in a room devoid of personal effects. We picture ourselves lazing on this bed, bathed in dappled sunlight and dozing off for a quick afternoon catnap.
This bed reminds us of a morning in Paris. One where you've just met someone and are ready and willing to spend days upon days under these covers. Together. Staring into each other's eyes. It's decidedly laid-back and ultra-livable; luxurious in a free-and-easy way.
Vacation Vibes, Channeled
Santorini, anyone? Snowy and spare, this clean blue-and-white bedroom channels a luxury villa on a cliff's edge overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We picture ourselves with suntanned skin, lounging under the covers of this big, beautiful, beachy bed. Just living super-high on the hog.
