When the news broke earlier today that mega-stud Ryan Gosling and bombshell Eva Mendes are expecting their first child, we braced ourselves for the deafening chorus of a million women's hearts breaking all across the world. (There may have been some livid pen-throwing at Lonny HQ.) To help ourselves accept the "fact" that Ryan is officially "off the market," we've rounded up some of the best bedrooms to hole up and sob in (plus some of our favorite Gosling gifs, for good measure).

Our first respite of choice is the J.K. Place in Florence, Italy. It hits all the right notes: privacy, dark drapery, a thick panel of curtains surrounding a four-poster canopy bed, and room service. We think a day or two of breakfast in bed with the 'Do Not Disturb' sign hung will see you back on your feet in no time.
If a trip to Europe is out of the question, a long weekend holed up in a dimly-lit master bedroom ought to cure your love pangs. We suggest unplugging from social media and avoiding all forms of communication that could possibly bombard you with images of the lip-locked lovebirds. Because if you're going to go rogue and mope, you had better do it on a bed of fur pillows with a cashmere Hermès throw.
Or, better yet, how about a bedroom with a wall covered in faux fur? Not only does it make for a luxurious wall covering, but we're sure it does wonders for stifling the sound of inconsolable tears in the wee hours of the morning. Your neighbors won't hear a thing.
When things are finally beginning to look up and you've finally come to terms with your defunct Gosling fantasies, a cheery room of boho linens and big, bright windows will surely get you thinking optimistically again. Open the shades, pop in your well-worn DVD of The Notebook, and get back out there. There are other Hollywood hunks to whom you might fantasy-betroth yourself,* and other gorgeous bedrooms to lust after–including fantasy nurseries for baby Gos.
(Just kidding, there's no one like Ryan.*)
