My pal, Kate from Domestikated Life recently got married! I loved seeing all of wedding sneak peeks on instagram and I can’t wait to see her official wedding pictures!
Recently I chatted with the new Mrs. to find out what is a do and a don’t in her new Mr. and Mrs. master bedroom.
-Monogramming on bedding? A do or a don’t?
A big giant monogrammed Y-E-S! We were gifted monogrammed sheets for our wedding and it was one of my favorite presents. I was a bit superstitious though and didn’t put them on our bed until after the wedding – now I love seeing our new shared monogram when I crawl into bed at night.
-Do you make the bed every morning?
I always make the bed in the morning, part of it is that I’m a bit of a neat freak, but also because I think getting into bed at night is so much cozier when you pull back the sheets on a tightly made bed!
-Breakfast in bed? A do or a don’t? Favorite Breakfast meal
The hubby and I disagree on this, he doesn’t love the idea of eating in bed, but he does bring me my morning coffee every weekend while I sleep in (what a catch, right?). If he’s feeling extra nice sometimes we eat a movie snack, like a bowl of popcorn in bed, if I promise to keep the crumbs in check!
-Accent pillows on bed. What’s the perfect amount?
We each have two standard pillows and a euro pillow, plus one accent pillow. I keep the accent pillows to a minimum because we live in a small space, but mix them up frequently to keep the bedding look fresh.
We don’t see eye to eye on nightstand essentials – his side is very minimalist, a cell phone charger and an old school alarm clock. I on the other hand keep a stack of books, my glasses, lots of little dishes to hold my jewelry, a travel candle in a delicious grapefruit scent, a pen to jot down notes while I’m in bed, and probably the latest shelter magazines!
-Favorite duvet set on Crane and Canopy?
I adore the Linden set in coral – it’s got a very clean, preppy look that is a perfect blank canvas for mixing and matching with other linens.

A big thank you to Kate for having a little pillow talk with us.
