I won’t bore you with details of bed making, but I wanted to share a quick little pillow trick I use on a daily basis (for the lazy bed maker, like me)!
But first a confession- I really am one of those people who makes the bed every. single. day. It just feels chaotic and unorganized if I don’t. I wish I could crawl out of bed and get on with my day, but I think I have a touch of OCD when it comes to things like that. Long story short, the bed gets made quickly, and I’m even happier now that this mud cloth pillow has made it’s way into the scene…
I like a lot of pillows. Not necessarily throw pillows, but bed pillows. I also like to have options and the eight year old in me sort of likes diving into a sea of pillows. I don’t mind layering them up, as long as they’re all the same color. I know a lot of people aren’t all about this many pillows- and that’s totally ok! The trick works with a multiple pillows or simply two regular bed pillows.
The trick // Quickly pull your duvet, sheets, comforter… whatever you use, toward the headboard and hide the messiness with an elongated pillow. Just give it a quick tug, no smoothing required. It brings the look together and covers any wrinkles or lumps. My duvet never wants to stay put and the top part always looks terrible. Problem solved! If you can’t fix the problem, cover it. It’s fast, easy, and I love the aesthetic of an odd shaped decorative pillow.
I actually turn to my husband after I wash the bedding. He puts everything back together perfectly. He makes a hospital corner that puts mine to shame, and everything stays in place. But after a couple days, things shift, the duvet gets wonky, and the pillow trick returns.
One last secret… I spritz a little of this lavender linen spray onto my pillow every night. I swear it helps me sleep, smells amazing, and is one product I’m fine leaving on my nightstand because the packaging is super chic. Either way, it’s a tiny luxury that makes my bedroom smell like a spa.
If you’re not a bed maker, just ignore this post and boast in the glory that you don’t waste your time doing this every morning. Ha!
