Photo of Kate and Andy Spade in Their Bedroom — Do You Eat and Drink in Bed?

Do You Eat and Drink in Bed?

Elka and I were clicking through The Selby's photos of Andy and Kate Spade's New York City home — which is amazingly sophisticated in a cozy, artsy way — and she commented on this photograph, "I can't believe Kate Spade lets her husband drink and smoke in bed while wearing shoes." My response was: "That is something I would never notice."

First of all, I'm a single lady, so those sort of cohabitation issues aren't a thing I pick up on. Secondly, I'm a huge proponent of breakfast (or cocktails!) in bed. In fact, just this weekend, my roommate whipped up some bacon, eggs, and cheese pastries and delivered them directly to my bedside. And now that the weather is chilly, I've already begun having my morning coffee in bed, easing myself into the day. Cigs are a no-no in my book, but the shoes don't bother me much either . . . the sheets can be washed! Then again, I don't own a crisp white duvet.

What are your thoughts on eating and drinking in bed?
