Bed Pillowing

Let’s talk about something serious today……

excessive pillows on the bed.

What are your feelings on this subject?

I know you have a strong opinion one way or the other.

Are you a fan? Do lots of pillows say to you – 
comfy

inviting

cozy?

Do they make your bedroom feel more 

finished
like an outfit that is well accessorized?

Or does it drive you crazy to have to take off decorative pillows each night and put them in a place that you won’t trip over if, say, you or your significant other need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night?

Or perhaps many shams and decorative pillows make your bed feel almost too polished, to the point where if you find one of your beloved children lounging on your made bed you feel like saying – and may even say aloud –

GET OFF THE BED!!! I MADE IT PERFECTLY AND IT’S THE ONLY THING IN THE WHOLE HOUSE THAT LOOKS NICE AND WHEN I WALK  INTO THIS ROOM TO PUT LAUNDRY AWAY OR MAYBE EVEN TAKE A SHOWER AND GET MYSELF OUT OF YOGA PANTS I WANT TO SEE MY GLORIOUSLY MADE BED WITH PERKY THROW PILLOWS GREETING ME! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? THAT ONE TEENY TINY PART OF THIS HOUSE NOT BE CRAZYTOWN???!?!

Um, yeah. WHO would ever say THAT????

Do tell –  are you a fan of decorative pillows and a gloriously perfect bed???
This, I need to know.
Also, this video? You need to watch it.
This boy, Sam Berns, was from the town next to ours – you might have seen the HBO series about him.
He suffered from the disease Progeria and recently passed away at age 17.
  He was a truly amazing and inspiring kid – so well spoken and thoughtful.
I would venture to say that in his short life he managed to live more fully than many adults.
Take a few minutes out of your day or the weekend ahead to give this a watch!

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

I am a bed pillow junkie and love to layer a whole mess of them on my bed! It's a sickness... :)

I have cut way back on my decorative bed pillows. I don't even use pillow shams anymore. I just have a pair of the pillows that we use to sleep on, 2 pink silky pillows and a small floral. That's it. I love the simple look and I love that I"m not spending so much time fluffing and styling every morning. Great topic.

I like some decorative pillows on the bed, but I do think that you can overdo it. Plus, I don't know where I'd put them because I wouldn't want them on the bed while I'm sleeping and I wouldn't want to put them on the floor.

LOVE many, many pillows on my bed. Mine layered bed pillows in decorative shams and cases. It feels indulgent to have many pillows. I don't get how people are comfortable with only 1!

Love love love love love! Too bad I don't have any, lol. Once I get the kids rooms finished up, I'll move on to making my room nicer.
