French Academie Beds for the Pool House Bedroom

I am loving these twin beds from Restoration Hardware! They are the new French Academie Beds in metal and I think they are just what I've been looking for to go in our pool house bedroom.

It's hard to find twin beds that are sophisticated and not juvenile. When we bought our wine country house, I had in mind antique iron twin beds from Italy.

Two years later, these yellow wood bunk beds are still here. It's ok, but not for grown ups!
Can't you just see the Restoration Hardware beds here? I'm envisioning all white bedding, seagrass and a neutral color on the walls.

To get a better feel of the room, why don't you be my guest! Let me take you upstairs to the little bedroom.

Here we are at the top on the little balcony in front of the bedroom, looking back down the stairs.

Looking through the door to the room.

Here is your view from the bed, looking out the door and beyond to the vineyards.
Oh heck, you might as well just spend the night!

There is a full bathroom downstairs for you.

And a copper sink too, at the ready.

As is the shower.

Feel free to use the spa later. Just grab a robe from the bathroom.

It's getting dark by the barbecue area. Let's sit a while and have a late night dinner.

I'll say good night now. Don't be afraid, I will leave the lights on for you in case you want to take a late night swim.

Here is your little guest room with those darn bunk beds!
That does it, I'm ordering those French Academie beds asap!

Hope you sleep well. Breakfast is at 9:00!

I'll be online ordering these beds for your next overnight visit!

I'm linking up to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Be sure to check out all the other outdoor photos.
Thanks Susan for hosting!

Your home is so inviting, and the views are to die for. It really looks like the south of France. I love the iron beds. I think they are the perfect touch for your guest room.

Heidi said...

Hi Delores,
I will gladly SLEEP ON THE FLOOR for a chance to gaze at that view and take a moonlit swim. But, as a shopping buddy I would never stop you from buying those great looking beds! Everything looks absolutely perfect as is, anything you do will only make it more so.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Delores, I saw these beds and fell in love. Actually I would like a room decorated just like the picture. How do you ever get your guest to leave with such a beautiful view?
xo, Sherry

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Oh my goodness! I LOVE these beds! But I love your guest house even more...lovely! And such a fabuloous view! It feels so frenchy! I wouldn't even mind the bunk beds for that view! Your home is gorgeous!..hugs,...Debbie

Blue Creek Home said...

Takin' my breath away here!!

They couldn't be more perfect. I love the seagrass and the white bedding plans, too.

Your guests may never come out of the guest house!


Acanthus and Acorn said...

I would not care what the beds looked like...I'd come for the views both inside and out!

The metal beds are great...but can't you just paint the current pair gray or one will mind!

Jemsmom said...

I don't want to just stay the night... I want you to adopt me!! Your home and the views from your home are stunning. What a dream to live in!

Komali Nunna said...

Can we move in with you. Just love your house.

Delores, those beds are to die for. Definitely will look fabulous in that room with those killer views. When are you taking reservations! Can't wait to see the new look.

Joyce said...

Your wine country home is so amazing that I could sleep in a sleeping bag if I was your guest but those new beds would be heavenly. No matter what you choose I am sure it will be amazing. I am in the process of remodeling my beach house. Ask Maureen how decorating challenged I am. Wish you lived here so I could have you help me. You would think it was fun project. Me, I am so confused after just picking out cabinets that my head is spinning like a top.

Kathysue said...

Delores, Are you kidding me, what a divine place to stay. I think the beds would be perfection in this space but truly the view makes this place perfection no matter what is in the room. It is all so lovely, I am sure your guest never want to leave your wonderful home, Kathysue

Kim said...

I'll just stay the rest week if that's okay with you. Heck, how bout I just move in. I'll be very quiet and clean up after myself....

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

While you are placing your order...order two for me;)! I will send you my address and you can have them sent to Texas!

These are gorgeous and such a deal compared to the real thing! I have had my eye on them since the catalog arrived...gorgeous!


I have been revisiting some of your older posts! It is always a delight to visit here...thank you!

Bargain Decorating with Laurie said...

Delores, with a view like that, I'd probably never even look at the beds. I'd just plop down in one and dream away the day looking at that view! (But those iron beds are great) laurie

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I would love to have a guest room that wasn't right next to mine. With a room that nice I wouldn't worry about the beds!


Lori E said...

I am sure I will be very comfortable even if you don't change the beds.
A very welcoming space.

Low Tide High Style said...

Delores, those beds are absolutely perfect for your guest room! And when can I book my visit?!

Kat :)

Julio said...

A slice of heaven. My bags are packed. What time should we be there?


Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Delores, the beds are beautiful and would fit so nicely in your fabulous guest house BUT... it is all so spectacular that it is not the beds that your guests will be talking about. It is your stunning land and surroundings. So incrediblly beautiful and breathtaking! And I'm sure you are a hostess extraordinare!
Thanks for the tour~ I'd love to stay longer, but reality is calling!

Theresa Plas said...

You're adorable! Your post is so cute! Your home is amazing and the views are breathtaking! I'd be happy to test out your new beds! Happy Winesday:)

Katy Noelle said...

I am just hastily packing my bags! I will take the beds away for you when I leave. You are right - the beds you have now are super but the metal ones will have much more character.

Oh, Dolores, you are so blessed. I am so happy for you!

Love, Katy

Katy Noelle said...

oops! I spelled your name wrong! Sorry, Delores! =] Well, I'll just take this moment to say that I love the print of the dress in the first photo from the catalog. Isn't that cute?

Decor To Adore said...

My heart is going pitter pat! So lovely! I will be blogging about your lovely oil soon.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, this is a-mazing! Delores, I think I would race out and get those beds because they are perfect for that room! Thanks for the tip on these. They are stunning, and so is your home. I will be right out for a visit. ;-)

I love everything in that catalog shot, too... the mirror over the bed, the artwork beside the bed, the bed itself. You are a BAD influence! Now, I want a whole new look. LOL!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!


Sheila :-)

Barbara said...

Just beautiful! I am sure those beds will be just perfect.

Ms. Bake-it said...

Love the French Academie beds! What a pool house bedroom. I am going to pack my bags now. Be there soon! Seriously though, with a guest house and view like that, it is amazing that your guests actually leave.

Candy @ The Little Round Table said...

I laughed out loud when I ran across this post over on Catalog Living, a tongue in cheek blog about an imaginary couple that live in the images we all admire in catalogs.

"OMG, those are Delores' beds!"
