“Make your bed!” You know the line. We heard it as kids and we say it as parents.
So what would you say if you came into my (an adult’s) room and saw this bed?
I really really REALLY dislike making my bed.
So I made my lazy train ways work for me.
(I don’t like hanging up my clothes either which you’ll find another quick fix HERE)
My bed is intentionally made messy because I like it like that.
And apparently so does my son. He thinks it’s an invitation to run down the hallway at top speed only to leap and be buried under piles of pillows and blankets.
Not that I would do ANYTHING like THAT…
I also like too many pillows.
And apparently too many wreaths.
Want in on a little trade secret? When you buy things from the thrift, not everything ‘fits’ right because what you find is what you find. So a way around that is to add more to create more. Let me show you.
See that cute duvet cover? I have a king bed and while the duvet cover and quilt reads king, they’re both too small. To compensate, I added a loose white sheet in between the mattresses. Just stuck it in there and allowed it to ripple and drape upon will.
Like a peek of lace? Same thing, it’s just a loose sheet jammed in between the mattresses.
This shot reminds me of a nice weekend sleep in and makes me laugh. All those layers consist of 3 loose sheets to add length and fullness.
See that checkered sheet? That’s a flat sheet that’s thrown along the length of the bed and puffed up. It’s a fake top sheet in order to add another layer. It’s a fast and furious trick to pull!
A messy bed is fun, causal, invites you to dive in at any time, and just ‘looks’ softer. It also says, ‘Relax and don’t take your decorating too seriously. Have fun!”
It’s not for everyone, but it’s me to a rumply crumply T!

Crazy or creative?
… or both?
