Making a Beautiful Bed

Luis Bustamante


There is an art to making a bed and it looking  a certain way...

I have been gathering ideas to redo my own bedroom...
and I actually started redoing it over 6 months ago and I had to put it on hold...

Do you like a lot of pillows on your bed?

I do...
I guess I'm a pillow hoarder...the more pillows the better...

 Do you prefer a comforter or a bed spread....I prefer a comforter...

Kay O'Toole, Lonny



Or do you like it simple?

  1. I'm definitely guilty of being a pillow holder. Unfortunately my husband does not get it and complains about all the pillows taking over. Have fun redoing your bedroom. We've been slowly working on ours - having a beautifully feathered nest makes life so much better, I think!

  2. I love pillows. I love a beautiful bed. Sadly, I don't take a lot of time to make it fancy. Only when I know I'm having company. Your images are really inspiring.

  4. I like a lot of pillows, but my husband, not so much! We have compromised on 2 pillows each and 3 scatters. Lovely selection of beds here. I would be happy with any of them! x Sharon

  5. Well…ahem, when I make the bed, it looks fabulous with its vary and sundry pillows…but having time to make it? Or making time to make it? That's a horse of a different color.
    BTW, I still haven't finished my bedroom. It's been 3 years. Just saying.

  6. love lots of pillows and that black cannon ball bed from Barclay Butera too
    and I am a comforter kind of gal even in the south in the summer I want my
    duvet folded at the foot of the bed. I love the weight of crazy I know.

  7. SIMPLE here!! No surprise there, I love a comforter, nice and puffy at the foot of my bed and simple white duvet with two pillow shams and two reg pillows in front. I actually did a post on that when I redid my bedroom! I am just a simple gal when it comes to my bed, puffy, comfy and simple

  8. While we love pillows, our husbands don't so they end up on the floor most days! Comforters for the winter and a light bedspread for the summer is all we need... Beautiful images!

  10. This is the perfect post for me right now! I am in the process of re-doing our room and I've finally found something I love on Splendid Sass! I am researching like crazy from one of Teresa's last posts…it was a fabulous spread with pom pom thingies hanging down…( sounds lovely doesn't it?!) Anyway, I love pillows…I love comforters and I love coverlets! Which is why I have a down comforter with my fabulous coverlet over it…it had to have the poof factor! If you have any idea how to find that beautiful coverlet in Teresa's post from Atlanta Home Magazine I would love to know!

  13. Beautiful beds! I like fewer pillows (lazy) and a comforter.

  14. I love pillows, but someone I share the bedroom with doesn't see the necessity, so I limit it...a bit! :) Pretty inspiration!

  15. I like pillows but my husband hates when hes tired and has to spend 5 min removing them so we met in the middle and have half the pillows, if it was up to me I would have many more though.

  16. Love a beautiful bedroom like these! I am a fan of the spread for looks, but the comforter for ... comfort!! So I have trouble with this decision!! Pillows ... yes!

  17. These are all beautiful Julie! My favorite is the first one. Dream Heaven!
    I like spreads, but I always end up using a comforter.
    Pinning!
    Happy Wednesday.

  18. I love the idea of a big fluffy duvet and lots of pillows. It doesn't quite work for us in reality since my bed seems to be a family gathering spot. I've been rethinking ways to make my bedding more functional, but still pretty. We'll see how that works out, lol.

  19. I used to use tons of pillows too - but practicality is winning out. I just have a few now and I actually enjoy the simplicity!

  20. Nothing like a beautiful bed. I say bring on the pillows...even if its work at the end of the night to get them off...so worth it! I love walking into a bedroom that features a beautifully made bed!

  25. I seem to have everything on my bed and I love it, although it takes a bit of undoing at night and if I'm really dog tired it's a bit of a pain. But it's a great way to entertain the kids in the morning when it's all piled high on the floor. The only thing I don't have which I crave is a canopy or four poster.
