Making a Bed.....the Designer way!!
To me.... the way your bed is made is very important, it adds to the luxury and comfort of your bed and sleep.
After a busy day there is nothing better than jumping into a beautifully made bed like you are staying in a five star hotel. The crisp white sheets, fluffy doona and pillows make me feel like I am sleeping on a bed of clouds!!
People often ask me to teach them how to make a bed so below are 10 steps of making a bed the designer way.....
Fitted sheet first.
Place top sheet on top of entire bed.
Fold top sheet a quarter of the way back towards the “foot” end of the bed. Fold sheet all the way across where my hand is placed on the sheet.
Pat top sheet to remove all creases then tuck all three loose sides neatly into bed.
Place either your doona/quilt on top of entire bed.
Fold doona/quilt back either in half or thirds to “foot” end of bed.
Pillow Time – Place 2 x European pillows against bedhead.
Place 4 x standard pillows in front of European pillows. Sleeping pillows on the bottom and display on the top.
Place 2 x decorative scatter cushions in front of the 4 x standard pillows with a karate chop in the middle to ensure the corners are crisp.
Final touch – add a little colour with a throw at the end of the bed!!
If you have any questions about making your bed or tips let me know I would love to hear from you.
