Some of us prefer to sleep “Princess and the Pea” style, high above the ground in a four-poster bed with a ton of cushioning beneath us, covered in the finest linens luxury can offer and a mere arm’s reach from a proper nightstand stocked with nocturnal essentials.
Others, though — the more bohemian among us, let’s say — are so used to wanderlusting their way around the world that they’ve become accustomed to catching a little shut-eye in a hostel, tent, bus terminal or beach to the point where traditional beds hold no real allure anymore.
Today’s roundup explores a few rather unbuttoned sleeping arrangements, from a frameless mattress covered in cushions and an eclectic converted attic to a bed made of shipping pallets and a headboardless black and white boudoir. If home is where you hang your hat, this quartet of personal quarters bespeaks a set of inhabitants whose hats have dangled from many a far-flung locale. And this afternoon, we’ve decided to curl up for a little catnap in the sorts of spaces where convention takes a holiday and gypsies lie down to dream.
