The private place of a public face is often of the main attractions on a celebrity house tour, even if the celebrity has long since departed the world: Who wouldn’t want to visit Elvis Presley’s bedroom? What was the style of the boudoir of Marie Antoinette?
Whether occupied by a king, a queen, a movie star or even a politician, bedrooms pique our interest. And the curiosity isn’t limited to those with an eye for design. There’s also an odd invasion-of-privacy component of the desire to see where a celebrity sleeps.
