Today is a great day and a milestone in my grownup life. We have bought a new bed, a bed that has everything and that adults buy. I would never really imagine myself to arrive at this point when I would spend more than a fortune to purchase just that, a bed, and no IKEA bed (like all my previous beds). I like to think about it as an investment, investing in ourselves for a greater sleep as one in fact spend half of a lifetime in bed.
We have bought the Rolls Royce of beds, from the English brand Hypnos with horsehair, alpaca hairs and lots of other features. I guess its no bed for vegans, even if the animals are treated well (something that I wanted to be very sure about before making any such purchase). I got to know this bedding brand after staying at the nobel hotel The Serras in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago. I had one of the best sleeps in my life and even traded one more hour in bed against a full blown breakfast.
Right after we got back home I emailed the hotel to ask what bed made my night so wonderful. Mr. Serras himself answered me with specifications of their beds and the name presented Hypnos beds. The random thing and what made me feel like “this is meant to be” was that I found the brand in a store in Zurich (which normally would never happen). We went to the shop last Saturday; tried, picked the frames and accessories and closed our eyes and swiped our card. It arrives tonight at six o clock and I cant wait to go to bed again. It feels great to have something in common with one of my great role model: The queen of England who’s apparently sleeps in one herself. Sleep tight.
