Can A Bed Make Us (And Our Interiors) Happy?

6 June 2013 0


Can a bed make us happy? A legitimate question, isn’t it, especially for someone who tries to detect the happiness in our homes. Well, the answer could be unsurprisingly easy: Yes! Whenever we are dead tired, any bed will make us happy. When we sleep next to the person we love, any bed will make us happy. But let us go further in the consideration of a bed as a piece of furniture and thus a part of our very own interior design. 

A bed is the heart of a bedroom. And a bedroom is the most private of rooms in our home. Usually, our guests don’t have access to our private and intimate haven called bedroom (apart from home tours). And the design and styling of a bedroom is hence a deeply private and intimate task. Everyone must answer a few questions: Do I like my bedroom to be a serene, neutral space where not only my body but also my senses come to rest? Or do I like a themed design because I feel all calm and balanced when I think of the sea and the beach for example? Whatever the decision is, it influences our choice of bedroom furniture, too.

Now I am a pretty happy guy I’d say (please confirm LOL) and I do love a good dash of colour myself. So when I got in touch with the Dutch bed manufacturer Auping (who are now a ‘Happy Sponsor’ too, see the little banner on the right), I was delighted to be introduced to their brand new bed ‘Essential’. I was immediately smitten by the happy yellow bed – it ignited a spontaneous inspiration of creating a happy bedroom that would always make you smile when you go to bed and when you wake up. I imagine the bedroom to be a sunny and happy place no matter what the weather outside is. And after all, this seems like a good idea (at least for me) as I feel that getting up early in the morning is way easier when it’s sunny and bright outside, right? And with a yellow bed, I fell like it would always be kind of sunny and bright in the bedroom!

Whether this bed would really make me happy or not, I will tell after I’ve seen and tested it a little bit. Later this summer I will head north to Hamburg to inspect this happy bed and will report back here to answer the question: Can a bed make us (an our interiors) happy? Stay tuned!

    Yes, most definitely! I love my bed, it is the focal point of the bedroom and really the whole point of the room all together! I’d love a bright yellow bed…would cheer up those glum mornings!

    I just LOVE Auping, my favorite bedding in our all-white bedroom is from them. It’s soft and of such good quality and comes in King or Queen size, or whichever: the largest existing size for our comfy bed 😉 The yellow bed looks awesome though. A comfy bed, whether it’s yellow or all white, makes me very happy!

    Yes definitely! I have a bright yellow headboard on my supremely comfy king size bed with 500TC sheets that I splurged on and honestly, it’s SO HARD to get out of, especially with my partner all cozied up next to me. Heaven! Love a yellow bed!! xxx

    Oh yes I would say I LOVE my bed, can’t wait to get in it, don’t want to get out of it. LOL
    Only wish I could take it away with me when I go on holiday as I just can’t sleep in any other bed except my own…

      Excellent point Samantha – right now I’m forced to stay one more night in Copenhagen due to a cancelled flight and I so wish I could sleep in my own bed! Looks like our own beds do make us happy after all!
