A well-made bed
Since having our second son Beau in October, and with an active 2.5 year-old, I don’t get to see my bed very often. Ohhhhh how I miss it. Maybe it’s some odd form of self-torture to be perusing the internet for pictures of beautiful beds, but that’s how I’m operating these days. Enjoy!
I tend to go for beds that are a mix of crisp and tailored but also cozy and layered. I don’t like a bed that’s too “shabby chic” or one that looks like the sheets will crackle when I get in them.
A lot of people might like this trend of losing the top sheet. My husband and I tried it, but we weren’t fans. It meant I was left with nothing when my husband stole the duvet from me in the middle of the night.
My recipe for a well-made bed:
- Fitted sheet
- Flat sheet
- Middle blanket (unless we are using our down comforter, in which case a middle blanket would make the bed too warm.
- Quilt or coverlet (the focal point of your bed unless you have a show-stopping headboard – Maharaja headboard from Wisteria anyone?).
- Throw at the foot of the bed incase your bed fellow manages to steal the sheet, middle blanket, and quilt.
- Pillows – I waiver on one pillow, two pillows, or a neck pillow.
Not crazy about the bedskirt and I couldn’t sleep on those pillows, but still a very pretty bed!
This bed looks so welcoming to me. I’m not usually super into monogramming, but I like it here. It brings in the accent color where otherwise the bed might look too stark.
This bed with linen sheets looks divine too.
