It was a hectic week.

So hectic, I didn't make the bed yesterday.


I love making the bed because I love getting into a made bed each night. It feels more comfortable and relaxing than climbing into a mess of blankets and trying to make them right (which never works).

I like to keep our bedding simple; fitted and flat sheet, duvet with cover, two pillows each and a throw pillow to finish. Much more feels like overkill.

And, seriously? Stacking up loads of decorative pillows takes time, and they collect dust and feel so very... 90's in aesthetic. At least to me.

I prefer my streamlined bed :)

How many pillows are on your bed?

I have to be honest. I never make my bed. But we do only have the 4 pillows we sleep with... :)

We don't fully make our bed. We have a goose down and a thinner blanket to cover that. But in the summer, the thinner blanket stays at the end and I just pull the goose down up. We have sleep kitties that like to get their hair all over the bed.

I like to go into the bedroom everynight to a nicely made bed as well. I'm in need of a new bedroom look though. We still have the same crate and barrel comforter from our wedding!

I'm still deciding on our pillow situation... Love your duvet- PB? Thanks for stopping by!

Ha-I completely agree. It just feels dirty if its not made all day. Four pillows.
