Sweet Dreams: What’s your bed style?

  1. Meg says:

    Dress it up! I'm from the south, a made pretty bed is very important! Monogrammed pillows, Euro Shams at the back, the whole nine yards. Bedding is one of my favorite parts of decor!

  2. LifestyleBohemia says:

    I LOVE the first bedroom. I recognized it right away – it's a Brooklyn townhouse right in my neighborhood. I love the bohemian feel and how the fireplace just pops.

  3. Lynett says:

    I'm not a fan of tons of pillows, maybe 4-MAX, but I do love to make -up my bed. During the week I just use a few blankets but make the bed before I leave. On the weekends, I dress it up a little. I done up bed makes a room, I think 🙂

  4. maryjayne says:

    Honestly, my bed very rarely gets made Monday – Thursday! I have an Asian style tatami mat bed with contemporary linens and a simple duvet. It's low to the ground and very 'zen' like. I love it!

  5. RLG says:

    Minimal and modern, baby! I don't want to look at anything when I get horizontal. I want calm. I crave decompression. I have this great duvet cover that's off-off-white. I've bleached it and washed it into oblivion. It's the best part of the end of my day. Cheers! xoxo

  6. Tamstyles says:

    I think my bed style has changed…

  7. Chic Coles (Cole Design) says:

    I would have to say my bed is a combination of the first style and the last style. I love my white tufted headboard, pillow top mattress, my nice sheets and fluffy pillows but until it cools down a little, it is not as cozy as I wish it would be!

  8. Magchunk says:

    My bed is a bad reflection of my style right now cause it's not exactly how I want it to be. I'm definitely a hotel-chic in taste, but simpler in execution. And my bedframe feels more like urban sophisticate… I'm all over the place.

    Ryan makes the bed, I don't unless I've just washed sheets and then I go the whole way and use linen spray.

  9. Sidney says:

    I love the girly glamour bed! Mine is very simple — neutral bedding with a few large pillows, and a contrasting throw. I literally make up my bed when I get out of it each morning! Don't know how that got started because I never made my bed up as a little girl!

  10. LindsB says:

    I really should start paying more attention to my bed and how it looks. The BF and I used to have a rule that whoever got out last had to make it,well that went out the window when the BF is last out of bed everyday. So, the bed NEVER gets made, and I really mean never. The only time it has been made is when I took pictures for my blog or my friends came over to see my place for the first time. Other than that, its pure mess 🙂

  11. New England Girl says:

    Oh my goodness- that third picture is amaaaaazing. I love the room in general, so beautiful! I am not sure what my style is. I'm not good with making my bed, need tons of comfy pillows of all sizes, lots of comforters and a comfy mattress. But, I am boring and stay away from patterns and the like. I'm all about solid colors. 🙂

  12. Sweet Nothings says:

    im obsessed with that green bed.

    my bed is huge-a cali king-i figured aftet squeezing 3 friends ina dorm bed after parties it was time to spread out! and unless im having guests, its never made. my mom cringes, but blah..i just cant do it.

    you are going to DIE when u see the DIY tufted headboard me and my dad are in the process of making

  13. says:

    You're so right that a bed can say a lot about you. Mine looks pretty much like the first one except the headboard is also upholstered in white. I've tried to change up the bedding but I just can't give up the white!

  14. Erin says:

    That green bed is amazing! I love it with the animal-print pillows and white linens. Great look!

    I love mixing prints and colors on my bed…lots of layers and pillows. And I love making it! It's like dressing the room each day!

  15. Dagny @ Beautiful Living says:

    I love the second pic! I think I'm i fusion of all of those styles 🙂

  16. Fee says:

    I think my bed would be under hotel chic.

    Normal quality bedding and then custom made black and yellow cushions to give it abit of a pop.

    As for making it…I always make it in the morning except for the weekend!

  17. pve design says:

    I love the top one.

    A few years back, I was doing a "mom" survey to see who made their beds (of my friends and my kids friends) and one boy said, I make it right before I go to sleep. I just loved that honesty!

    I cannot leave the house til the beds are made!

  18. Crystal @ Plush Palate says:

    I love the first image. It would be so fun to use such a dark color on the walls to reference the midnight sky! I'm still trying to figure out my bedroom style (although I recently posted about getting a four post bed), but one thing is for sure…white sheets, linens, and duvets for me!

    I also can't leave the house without making my bed 🙂

    *Loving your blog!

  19. Laura Casey Interiors says:

    I make it every morning too. Love all these images!

  20. Couture Carrie says:

    I am like you ~ I have to make my bed in the morning!

    I love the bohemian Anthropologie look – I have half a dozen pillows on my bed and they are all different.

    Really fun post and pics!


  21. Scientific Housewife says:

    My bedroom style is really contemporary. I have a dark wood sleigh bed with matching dresser and nightstands and my walls are taupe with a steel blue accent wall. I have a bay window with brown sheer curtains and pillows under the window and a beautiful blue and brown rug in front of the bed. It was basically whatever my husband let me have 🙂

  22. Jennifer says:

    my mom was (and still is) very serious about bed-making. we couldn't leave for school if beds were unmade! she said it made the whole house look neater. I think she's right — I still make it every day.

  23. Yansy says:

    I'm just like you, I can't leave my house without my bed being made. I'm definitely hotel chic. Ok, I must go back to painting. See you tomorrow.

  24. journeychic says:

    Our bedroom is hotel-chic, and the hubby is NOT a fan of throw-pillows. :(. I'd love to make the bed every morning, but he's still in it when I leave for work and hates making the bed!

    Lovely inspiration pics, BTW. Love the one with the brick wall – reminds me of our old apartment.

  25. Alicia B. Designs says:

    I'd say my favorite is the Pink Street Design. My current bed is not my ideal bed though. I have a white matelasse quilt but I wish I had more fun pillows and color. I don't love hotel bedding–I like to have a little quirkiness or fun/color infused in my bedding. Also, I want a headboard. AND I never leave my apt without making the bed. NEVER.

  26. Deliciously Organized says:

    My style changes! I go from a TON of pillows to 2! I switch it up a lot! I do always love all white bedding though…love the pics you posted!-carlee

  27. Christen says:

    Since we're talking beds… Do you know of an easy, DIY for a headboard? I just want an oversized rectangular headboard for our very boring bed…

  28. Chic Coles (Cole Design) says:

    Such an interesting thought. How do you dress your bed. I am going to always ask a new client this. It will give a lot of insight.

  29. Devon says:

    I needed this post today. Thank you. We are having a major design crisis in our bedroom…a total lack of vision. You are so timely, m'dear!

  30. passementerie says:

    In theory I love the fussy, but in reality the first bed matches my style most of all. I like bohemian clutter downstairs, but prefer my bed to be plain, and white. I am branching out into pure linen soon…

  31. Dumbwit Tellher ♥ says:

    I love this topic ~ I recently had been pondering throw it out there as to how many of us make our beds in after rising each day? I find that many parents don't teach their children @ any age, how to make a bed. I am definitely hotel chic. Few pillows, not a lot of fuss but like our room to be elegant. Great post!

    Oh…we make our bed; each & every day!

  32. Blueprint Bliss says:

    Mine is probably more the last style- but without any color! 🙂

    I'm a bed maker… just about every single day.

  33. Kristen Sara says:

    I've now decided… my dream bedroom (someday) needs to have a brick wall I can put my bed up against. And a chandelier. That room is exquisite!!!

  34. Lauren says:

    oh totally depends on how crazy life is and my mood… sometimes i have 5 pillows and other times only 2. (right now) when things are really busy & i know i just want to fall into bed at night I do 2, and when I have more time, I add some euros and a pretty patterened pillow or 2… (I just had a huge body pillow upholstered in this great ikat for my bed- can't wait to show you!!!— hahah PRETENDING things are abotu to slow down 😉

  35. Lauren says:

    hahah and i got that west elm pintucked duvet cover because it looks good unmade… we rarely actually "make the bed" right now!!! eeeeek

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
