Fact # 1: Greece has been on top of my Europe (wish list) itinerary, primarily for the wonderful sea view. But when I think about their architecture and interior, I always thought I do not relate to them well, as did I with Greek mythology.
Fact # 2: I have always been a heavy sleeper, and bedrooms gave me the ideal of ultimate privacy and sanctuary. On top of innumerable reasons, bedrooms have always been a favorite place of mine- to lounge in and to design.
Fact # 3: I never expected the aforementioned bits could be even more lovelier… together. In her book “At Home in Greece,” Julia Klimi gives us a deeper appreciation for Greece- the scenery, the architecture and of course, interior design. Purchase the book here for HK readers, and here for international readers.
These are some of my favorite images (focusing on traditional Greek beds):
It is largely part of my immobility once I hit the bed, but I have always wanted a platform bed- this way, I don’t fall off and my items don’t fall too far down. With this U-shaped platform bed (which I think is meant for sharing), I can literally stay in bed all daaaayyy.
With this one, I can even afford to entertain guest in a more “formal” manner.
Once in my life, I have been a fan of minimalism. At that point, this would have been more than enough to make it to my bedroom wish list.
Although not a platform bed, this bed still captivates me with its ethereal, flowy cocoon. And with a cool color tone, I’m amused to say this room looks really warm. 😉
Seeing these invigorated my desire to visit Greece, but now that I have discovered another spectacular destination/recreation, I should make a mental note to not sleep in and enjoy what I originally went for. (That said, of course I will scour the internet for a hole-in-the-wall B&B!)
Ps. Hi Hong Kong, in case you haven’t already known of this site fishpond.com, they sells books at competitive prices, some even almost 50% off. Most books would be shipped from straight from UK. I just recently purchased a book from them. I’ll see how it goes.
