Dreamscapes: 8 Bedrooms with Breathtaking Views

With mesmerizing views of their spectacular locations, these luxury bedrooms blur the line between dreams and reality

Just as a bed is more than a place to rest one’s head, so a bedroom is more mere space for a mattress and headboard: After all, for thousands of years the bedroom was where humans entered the world—and, sometimes, departed it. In everyday life, the bedroom is the place we wake into the world, and where we leave it to enter our dreams. The luxury home simply enhances this special space with lavish amenities such as spa-like saunas and soaking tubs, theatrical makeup spaces, designer closets, fireplaces, lounges, wet bars—even mini kitchens. In this Luxury Defined collection, we showcase bedrooms with ultimate privacy, even seclusion, and yet which come with a view: Doors, windows, terraces and balconies bring the outdoors in, whether the vista is the city skyline, the mountains, or the sea. Pleasant dreams!
