Yep did you even know there was such a thing as National Make Your Bed Day?! Well a little group of us organized by the amazing Camila of Effortless Style, have decided to share a peek into our bedrooms and talk to you a little about our secrets of making our beds to help celebrate. Yes, I’ve got a few secrets along with my favorite sources for bedding to share and so do these amazing other ladies.
Camila asked us to answer some questions so here we go!
Sometimes. I wish that answer was all the time but I have to say I can be a bit lazy about it. What I do do every day is pull the sheets up and coverlet and fluff our sleeping pillows. But the rest of our decorative pillows probably make it on our bed about half of the time.
There are a few essential items that I think make our bedding particularly comfortable. I am such a fan of having a coverlet on the bed and I am in love with the ones from Crane & Canopy. I have used this brand for years and their bedding is so well made. This coverlet is lightweight and has a gorgeous diamond embroidered pattern on it. I use 2 matching pillows for our decorative pillow decor.
I also always have a duvet cover on our bed. It is always folded at the end of our bed and so easy to just pull up over me if I get cold. Typically in the winter it is over our coverlet. I just got this linen set and it is so gorgeous!
2. Love or hate a flat sheet?
I personally LOVE a flat sheet. We have them on all the beds in the house. My flat and fitted sheets are what I was the most too so I don’t think I could imagine laying under just the coverlet every night. I just love when they feel cool and crisp.
3. What is the perfect amount of pillows for an arrangement on your bed.
So I think this depends on what size bed you have. For a king size, I typically use 3 euro shams, 2 standard shams and then 1 or 2 decorative throw pillows for the front. For a queen, I take out 1 of the euros.
4. Are you a nut like me and iron your bedding or do you have another trick I need to know about?
Oh this question cracked me up! Okay so honestly I think my grandma ironed all our sheets but I am in the mind set of who has time for that. So I just like to make sure I take them out of the dryer quickly after they are finished to prevent wrinkles and if they are really bad I have this hand held steamer that I love.
5. What’s on your nightstand? Book? Beauty products? Phone? Snack?
So typically if I’ve gone to Trader Joes that week, I will have fresh flowers on my nightstand. They are the most inexpensive and so pretty. Other than that, I have my glasses, a book, my phone charger, and my favorite nightly essential oils I like to put on before I go to bed.
So that’s it friends. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments and I will be happy to answer them.
