To be honest, I've been notoriously bad with bedding and I always get stuck when designing this area, so I never show it. I know as a blogger, I feel pressured to show only my best work and fear the scrutiny of other bloggers. But hey, we're not all perfect and I wanted to keep it real and show you something that's an evolving work in progress.
|Right when I moved in. Yep, that's an air mattress.|
|Here's the bed with a duvet I sewed from two sheets. The quality was horrible, it wrinkled and pilled. I ended up throwing it out.|
|The duvet hid this satin mess.|
|So, I flipped it over to the matte, cotton side. It was an OK fix, but it looked cheap.|
So, I went on Amazon and bought a synthetic down comforter. It is awesome. And I only paid $70! After sleeping one night with this, I can say that it is a definite value; generously filled and has a high thread count.
|My bed with the new duvet. Look closely in the hallway and you'll see Higgins.|
Here it is with my faux fur throw at the end of the bed. The throw definitely looks better crumpled up, as you can't see how cheesy the pattern is printed on there. However, I need to stretch it to protect the bed from Mr. Higgins' fur.
How do people with pets do it? I love an all white bed, but his black fur is everywhere! Plus, since he's also white, there's white hair on dark fabrics. I love the little guy but it's NOT cute.
