Last week I posted about the 5 Ingredients for a Beautifully Made Bed and this week I wanted to get a little more specific about how to arrange pillows on your bed to make it look stylish, comfy, and inviting.
I like to think of pillows as the ‘jewelry’ of your bed.
You can make almost any drab outfit look stylish with the well thought-out addition of some pretty jewelry, just like you can make plain bedding look fabulous by choosing the right pillows and arranging them to compliment one another.
Look at the following two pictures and try to visualize the bed without the pretty pillows.
Since pillows play such an important role in how your bed looks,
I wanted to give you some visuals of ways to spruce up your bed with the addition of well-placed pillows.
I created these little ‘cheat sheets’ for both king and queen sized beds to give you some simple ideas of how you can arrange pillows to make your bed look stylish and inviting.
Let’s start with king-sized beds…
Arranging pillows on a queen bed is similar to the way you would on a king bed, but you should use one less euro pillow and use standard size rectangluar pillows instead of king sized.
Feel free to print out a pillow ‘cheat sheet’ to stick in your purse to help you when you are pillow shopping!
Next week, I’ll be sharing my favorite sources for pretty pillows.
In the meantime, I’d love to hear from you…
