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?
