A Well Made Bed

A Well Made Bed

Posted on 12 November 2018

So here's the thing... All of us love our beds. I mean that's just a fact. I know there is a point in your day where you walk into your bedroom, look at your bed longingly and whisper sweet nothings in its general direction. You promise it that you will be back soon. You go through your work day and dream of getting into your soft sheets, and cozy comforter with a pillow pet propped behind your head. Maybe that last part is just me, but I don't judge.

Now beds come in all shapes and sizes and their bedding is beautiful just the way they are, but honestly, a cute bed is so much better than NOT a cute bed. There is something that gives a person butterflies when they look at a well made bed with a floral bed skirt on, that makes them want to grab their cat and take a good long nap.

Okay... okay, you aren't a cat person (sigh...) grab your dog then, hop into your bed, and take this ride with me. A ride to the closest destination to heaven you can get here on this earth. A ride to a well made bed.


Comfort is a necessity:

There are many things in life that can get a person excited. Maybe it's a good book, a new movie, and large pizza with pineapples (again maybe that's just me). But honestly that list is incomplete. All of those things are great and all, but can you really compare that to a freezing cold room and a pile of beautiful blankets to keep you warm? Getting up from my bed every day is like heading into a nightmare, because who wants to leave a dream?
Sure, there are a lot of people out there that just sleep with a sheet on their beds (maniacs), and no I don't talk to those people, but I choose to have compassion towards them. I need to understand that they simply do not understand the magic of a good night's sleep in a well made bed! I mean, how could they?

Buy the right bedding:

I have always loved sleeping. Ever since I was little, I had to be completely dragged out of bed. My mom used to do the fun ol' mom thing and pour water on me if I didn't get up. I guess I carried that into my adulthood though, because there really is no where I'd rather be than tucked away from the world under my cozy comforter. When I started blogging a few years ago, of course the need for a well decorated place became a necessity.
I had been needing to buy a new bed set for years, but I never knew what I wanted. Did I go for bright and colorful? Black because it matched everything? White, so it showed every color of dirt? Then one day I was on Linens & Hutch and saw my future... my destiny! The perfect grey duvet with a hint of floral. Not too girly, not too modern, right in the middle. I then decided to accompany this duvet with plaid patterned sheets and pillow cases! Because why mess with a good thing?

Care enough to make your bed every day:

Once I set all of these things up in my room and purchased the perfect grey blanket to match, it was truly love at first site. For the first time since college, I felt like my room was complete and everything just fell into place. I love the idea of waking up every morning and caring enough to make the bed. It's so refreshing to look forward to my room after a long day of work, and know that not only will I be cozy while I sleep... BUT I also will be as fashionable as all get out! The real test came when Mini (the queen/my cat) decided to take her first nap on this new bed set. Once she gave me the green light, I knew my fate had been sealed.
This was it, the closest place to heaven I could get here on earth.

So what am I getting at here?
1: Get a cat.
2: Quit debating on getting new bedding, and head to Linens & Hutch right now.
3: Make sure to send me pics so I can see what you got!
Trust me, you won't regret making your room cozy and classy, just in time for fall. Once you get under that comforter and start to dream, you will realize that you may or not... be in heaven
