I hope to one day have a beach house to retreat to... Any time, any season. If it doesn't happen this side of heaven, I find solace in dreaming of my heavenly home... not a mansion on a street of gold, but rather a small cottage by the sea :)
Fabulous idea. With a thicker, more cushy mattress.... I would never leave. How about a simple single 'shelf' / 'end table' along the entire length of the bed on just one side to accommodate my books, magazines, drinks and snacks? While I'm dreaming, I might as well dream big.
