The Bed | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

The bed, the cocoon, the throne, the dream catcher, the love alcove, the resting place and even a playground, however we want to describe it, the bed throughout history has had many functions, but providing a comfortable rest has been the most important function of all and it has been the greatest invention of the human kind.

Long time ago, babies were born in beds at home and the last breath was drawn in beds before the body was taken away. The chamber room which contained only one large bed, often was the place where people met socially. It was no surprise to see grown up kids in their twenties sleeping in the same bed with the parents. The bed was the place for love-making, to produce kids, as well as discuss family problems. In the Middle Age people slept in beds that were built into the walls, set into an alcove enclosed on three sides and the opening was a curtain or shutters.

From that complete closeness, we arrive at our time, taking to bed our frenetic life and everything that has become a necessity: computers, cell phones, bills to pay, food, TV, and if there is any time left, we might think of some love. The items I just mentioned produce negative energy, the electromagnetism affect our sleep and should never be taken to bed.

How do we keep the bed and the chamber a safe heaven? The first and most important item close to our skin is the bedding set. After reading so much about bedding and how to provide a refreshing night’s sleep, I came to conclusion that comforters made of hypoallergenic eider-down are the best. The female of this duck species living in the Northern Seas of Europe, North America and Eastern Siberia has been proven to have the best quills in the breast area. The eider’s nest is built close to the sea and is lined with eider-down, plucked from the female’s breast.

Silk fabric is best to use as covering for the filling. Silk does not allow the growth of bed mites and is resistant to bed allergies.

Sheets made of natural fibers are the best. I used to think sheets made from bamboo fabric were the best, until I touched the sheets made of beech wood fabric and fell totally in love. The feel is regal and opulent, delicate and soft, silky and cool. I am totally into it now.

 

Once you decide on the natural aspects of the bedding, please, please don’t match the bedding set to the curtains, the rug, the carpet, the bathroom towels, the art work and everything you wear to bed. What a mistake it would be!!! Please, refrain from doing so. The bed has one function only: to give you an exceptional sublime experience of resting and pleasure, it has nothing to do with anything else in the room, keep it special.

 

Consider dressing up for bed, whether you sleep with a partner or by yourself. If your bed is the means of an exceptional experience, why would you go to bed dressed in a cheap night attire, on in short pants and t-shirts with vulgar writing on, or even worse, torn? Think about it. Wouldn’t it be better to create an aura of pleasure around you? Put a few drops of your favorite scent and get dressed in a night attire that makes you feel good. Your sleep will improve and….what do you think would happen if you sleep with a partner…? Ciao,
Valentina
