One of the most luxe examples of bedroom decor in all of American history may have been the bedroom decorating of Helena Rubinstein, the cosmetics company founder and one of the most successful businesswoman of her time,(1870-1965). Ms. Rubenstein moved around a fair amount but her final bedroom was in a triplex on Park Avenue in Manhattan.
-From Over the Top Suzanne Slesin's book about Rubinstein, we learn that under doctor's orders at age ninety four, Madame Rubinstein was to spend at least a few mornings a week in her luxurious bedroom. The doctor's orders did not interrupt Madame's work. She invited her key executives to her bedroom. It could accomodate up to at least a dozen people. They perched on acrylic chairs. Ms. Rubinstein was quite a Modernist.
Even if you don't plan to have business meetings in your bedroom, make a decorative bed front and center in your bedroom and make it special!
Another of my favorite bedrooms is the one belonging to Idina Sackville at "Clouds," one of her African homes.
Here is an excerpt from the book The Bolter by Frances Osborne, Idina's great granddaughter describing Idina's decorative bed:
"It was a large room, almost the size of the drawing room, but, sited on the corner of the house, it again had windows on two sides. Near the door lay an enormous bed covered in a rug of wildcat skins and above which hung a childhood photograph of herself, Avie and Buck. Beyond its sleeping area was another "room," space for a writing desk and chair, another sofa even, all looking out to the view beyond. The door was propped open by a tortoiseshell-topped elephant's foot, to allow her dogs to wander in and out."
No wonder they called the house "Clouds." The decorative bed decor sounds heavenly!
