Beds for Mountain Houses

La Lune has long been one of my very favorite furniture makers for mountain homes.  I especially love to use their cabinets in my client's houses. 

La Lune is a step up from the usual hickory furniture companies.  First, their styling is more sophisticated.  Second, they offer their finishes in colored stains that I love to use.  I have had great success with the red, black and green finishes. 

 

For one of the best mountain bed collections around, look to La Lune.  Here are some of my favorites...

 

Above, simple modern clean lines meets mountain rustics.  This is a sophisticated bed for a modern mountain home.

Above, what La Lune does best, a painted finish on bark combine with creative styling on this romantic bed.  Gorgeous for the master suite, don't you think?  Pricing starts at $2799.

Daybeds are so useful, especially in family cabins where you are trying to squeeze in as many sleeping areas as possible.  Here are two from La Lune.

Which do you like best? Top is the 4076 which is $3079 in natural and $3599 in colored finishes. 

Above, another great La Lune bed.  This one has wicker caning.

And finally, most mountain houses have a bunk room.  Here's how to make yours fabulous...

Put a pair of these babies in your bunk room and you've got sleeping for six adorable kids.  Make your vacations easy, add bean bag chairs, cozy pajamas and toss a pizza in once in a while!

La Lune furnishings can be purchased through Dragonfly Designs.  To inquire about pricing, finish samples and delivery, or to place and order, call (530 583-6076). 

 

 

Well, the plow is in front of my house at this very moment cleaning up a small snow berm left from earlier this week.  It's that time of year again.  The mountains are starting to open and I plan to be skiing in a few weeks (I ski Squaw Valley and if that's your mountain, I hope to see you on the slopes!) 

Anyway, here's a little tidbit just to get you into the mood.  After a long days ski, what better way to climb into a cozy warm bed than with these charming embroidered skier sheets?

 

A client tipped me off to these...thanks, Laura!  The link is at http://www.cuddledown.com/product/bedding/sheets/embroidered-skier-percale-flat-sheet.do if, like Laura, you wish to purchase them. 

And just a reminder, the flannel sheets below are available at Garnet Hill.  I've posted them before but thought I would include them again. 

 

Charming.

Stay warm!

 

Is it because everyone wants grandkids?  Who knows...but what I do know is that most of my clients ask for a bunk room. 

My favorite bunk rooms have built-in beds like this charming example I found in a Pottery Barn catalogue:

If you want to go a step further, set each bunk up like its own little room: 

Of course, privacy curtains are a must:

And don't forget that each bunk needs good lighting and comfy support pillows for reading in bed.  Yes, the grandkids will probably sneak in a good late-night read with a flashlight, but when your adult friends see how cool the bunk room is, they'll want to stay there, too. 

I'd certainly want to stay in this bunk room from the HGTV Dream House.  You gotta know the party group will be staying in here:

Of course, if you know the bunk room is going to be exclusively for kids, you can add a little whimsey:

Or you could do Swedish style bunk beds:

Maybe modern is your thing:

Or you just love log style:

Me?  I want the little red room at the top:

 

 

Could your cabin use an extra bed or two?  It seems a fact of mountain living, especially when it comes to vacation homes, the more beds, the better the vacation.  Family reunions, ski holidays, summer camp...large groups getting together to share the fun. 

Daybeds are just what they sound like.  By night they serve as a comfortable twin size bed, but by day they double as sofa-style seating.  They are a practical way to tuck a bed into living rooms, sun rooms, dens, libraries and even wider hallways. 

 

Pinecone finials...perfect for a cabin.  This bed is from Farmhouse.

Another Farmhouse bed above.

Millcreek makes this charming painted and carved daybed.  Many daybeds can be ordered with an optional trundle which can be pulled out at bedtime to sleep an extra person.

Another Millcreek charmer, above.

This handsome daybed is from Restoration Hardware.  I love the rustic texture of wicker in mountain houses. 

Another wicker daybed from David Francis.

A canoe paddle themed daybed from Seabrook .

Why not do an antique?  Below an old Stickley daybed. 

And a charming bent willow daybed from Willows, below.

Finally, my all-time favorite daybed, the Jolliette from Woodland.

 All beds available through Dragonfly Designs (530) 583-6076.

Toile, quilts, French furniture, blue and white porcelains...do they work in a cabin bedroom?  You bet your ticking stripes they do!  See for yourself:

This beautiful weekend cabin bedroom is Interior Designer Charles Faudree's own.   As if the plush upholstery, striped curtains and bed hangings, and antique Oriental carpet weren't enough, Faudree has accessorized this room to the max (as he does in all his rooms).  It all adds up to super-inviting mountain comfort.

 

The old logs and stone fireplace are given new life with this elegant collection of crisp cottons.  I love the mix of found antlers, ferns and logs with French porcelains, silver knick-knacks and silk lamp shapes.  Faudree loves to add what he calls an "instant ancestor" to his rooms and here you see this in the oil painting hanging over the mantle. 

The emphasis here is on elegance over rusticity, and I have to say that I, for one, love it that way.
