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.....

STEP 1

Fitted sheet first.

 
 

STEP 2

Place top sheet on top of entire bed.

 
 

STEP 3

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.

 
 

STEP 4

Pat top sheet to remove all creases then tuck all three loose sides neatly into bed.

 
 

STEP 5

Place either your doona/quilt on top of entire bed.

 
 

STEP 6

Fold doona/quilt back either in half or thirds to “foot” end of bed.

 
 

STEP 7

Pillow Time – Place 2 x European pillows against bedhead.

 
 

STEP 8

Place 4 x standard pillows in front of European pillows.  Sleeping pillows on the bottom and display on the top.

 
 

STEP 9

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.

 
 

STEP 10

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.
