It’s All About the Bed

September 26, 2012

This post brought to you by Leggett & Platt. All opinions are 100% mine.

In most rooms of the home, the featured piece of furniture can vary, but in the bedroom the most important element is the bed!

If you spend (on average) 6-8 hours of your 24 day sleeping, that’s 50 hours a week, 2600 hours a year, and 180000 hours in a lifetime. OK OK, who cares about the math, but all-in-all, we spend ALOT OF TIME SLEEPING, and that equals the need for a comfortable bed, right?!

I recently learned about Leggett & Platt who creates beds that truly transform your bedroom space into an oasis.  They not only offer gorgeous, stylish beds (that’s key in my world), but with a simple touch of a button, they are adjustable.  How neat!  With today’s busy lifestyle, the bedroom is not only a place for sleep, but also to watch TV, read, and work (sorry to say, but it’s true). Honestly, I wake up many mornings with a stiff lower back and I think if I had a bed that had adjustable positions, my life would be alot different.  And how about when watching TV when laying in bed (yes, I have a TV in my boudoir) -  how much better would it be to adjust the mattress versus leaning on 4 propped pillows?!

And check out this stat…

In a recent survey by Leggett & Platt Adjustable Bed Group a majority of consumers (89%) expressed a desire to transform the master bedroom into a tranquil retreat, a place to relax, read or watch TV while 69 percent said they feel a little luxury is important in their lives.

Leggett & Platt have created a range of attractive adjustable beds for any design aesthestic, in a range of price points.  From upholstered to wood, they have a variety of stylish headboards and beds to choose from.  Deciding on which is going to look best in your space will probably be the hardest part.

You know me and my style, I like to create an eclectic, yet sophisticated space and decided to put together a Creative Vision Board based around one of the Leggett & Platt beds.  I chose one of the beds in their Designer Series, which offers a great mix of different style headboards and frames – there are SO MANY options!

I decided to base this CVB around an upholstered tufted headboard because they are a favorite of mine as a bedroom feature.  Here’s my Modern Elegance Bedroom CVB…

Amazing tranquil bedroom based around a stylish and an amazing comfortable & adjustable bed – wouldn’t you love to sleep in this space?!
