In our bedrooms, we take leave of our daily woes. Far from the bustle of the kitchen, the sociability of the living room or the indulgence of the dining room, this part of the home is reserved for intimacy, romance, and dreaming.

Bedtime: Inspirational Beds, Bedrooms and Boudoirs is an inspiring, visual journey into the sleepiest, yet most salacious, room of the house. Celia Forner whisks you through the bedrooms of queens and emperors, designers and decorators, today’s most exclusive hotels, and even the most evocative fictional boudoirs from stage and screen. Taking us from Marie Antoinette to the Maharaja of Indore; from Tony Duquette to Peter Marino; from Mae West and Peggy Guggenheim to Rudolph Nureyev; from Gone with the Wind to 2001: A Space Odyssey, Bedtime is a must have for anyone who dreams of sleeping like a king or queen.

Designers and clients alike will find fresh inspiration in this king-size source book, which shows astonishing breadth of vision in collating more beds and bedrooms than one could possibly dream of, and is an invaluable addition to any design collection.

Celia Forner, former Ford’s Supermodel of the Year, is an art collector, jewelry designer, curator of the Portable Art exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, and CEO of ALLEVEN, a luxury beauty brand. Married with two children, she divides her time between London, New York, and Mallorca—much of it in bed.

Gianluca Longo is Contributing European Editor for W magazine, a British Vogue Contributing Editor and Cabana’s Style Editor at Large.
