Would You Put a TV at the Foot of Your Bed?

Would You Put a Television at the Foot of Your Bed?

The 1960s East Hampton home of celebrated sartorial stylist Lori Goldstein is on the market for $2.15 million, and the Wall Street Journal has a fabulous tour of the stylish digs. As expected, the three-bedroom is quite a fashionable one; not only did Goldstein herself bring an element of style to it, but she also hired designer Joe D'urso — who New York magazine called a "design revolutionary" — to help restore the space to its current condition. That said, I would only expect the best from the creative duo. So imagine my surprise when I spot a flatscreen television glaring at me from a trunk at the foot of Goldstein's bed. I can see that mounting a flatscreen on her green bedroom wall might disrupt the visual of her stunning fireplace stove, but her choice is a big old faux-pas in my book. I'm not even convinced that anyone should have a television in their bedroom to begin with. And I'm sure Carrie Bradshaw wouldn't approve either — did you see Sex and the City 2? What do you think? Am I being uptight or do you agree it's not the most aesthetically pleasing place to put a television?

Yeah that's a little uptight. I've read the arguments against a TV in the bedroom and I have never agreed. I think it depends on the layout and look of your bedroom. Personally, at different times of the day or my mood, I like to spend time in a particular room of my home. Sometimes I like being in my bedroom, and I'll put on my little round 60s looking TV when I'm folding laundry or when I'm sick. I enjoy that. No, I did not see Sex and the City 2. It looked dumb.

It's not a nice place to put it, but even if you hid it in a piece of furniture, I wouldn't put it there. I am just not a fan of watching TV in bed. It certainly increases no one's productivity. I'm planning to get a cabinet for my TV in the living room too, so I can put it out of sight when it's not in use.

I don't think its that bad, its small enough to not disturb the rest of the room. Plus i love snuggling under my covers and watching a good movie on one of those lazy days!
