Sex And The City: Even Carrie’s Apartment Grew Up

This is Carrie’s apartment during the SATC series. Really eclectic, a little messy. It looks like a real apartment. Okay, now check out her apartment — supposedly the same one — in the Sex and the City movie. The bedroom looks so…neat! What happened? Does Carrie pay someone to clean her apartment now that she’s a regular contributor at Vogue? Amelia thinks the bed looks smaller. I think it’s a little hard to tell, but why would someone downsize? Once you go queen, you never go back. One flaw we’ve found so far is that the radiator is missing in the photo from the movie. This might be because the photo is from decorating magazine Traditional Home, and the editors might have airbrushed it out to make the photo more visually pleasing. This better be the case, otherwise the movie’s producers/set designers have some explaining to do. [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Couples are not meant to sleep in the same bed, writes Michael Gorra on The Smart Set. “Each person in Germany is meant to sleep under his own covers…No snuggling under a common blanket.” While double beds might be sold, they’re only meant for people who sleep alone. Instead, two single mattresses are put side by side with separate bedding for each. It saddens me to know that people in Germany are missing out on spooning and such, but they’re probably getting better sleep. [The Smart Set] Keep reading »

More Bed-Buying Tips

If you’re in the market for a new bed and weren’t drawn to this one, you might want to consider buying a soft bed, rather than a firm one. For people with low back pain, sleeping on a hard mattress may actually make the pain worse, according to a new report published in Spine. Sleeping on a softer bed allows the body to stay in a neutral position, reducing stress on the spine. It can also increase your total sleep time. (Actually, I already knew this because Jamelle, a manager at Sleepy’s, told me this last month when I bought my new bed. He must have the inside scoop on all things bed-related.) Keep reading »
