1 Bed | 4 Ways

Hey friends, thanks so much for your response to the latest Sugarplum Style! I'm thrilled you love those posts...and hope you scooped up the beaded bracelet trio while the Hi Sugarplum exclusive offer is still going!

Today I'm excited to share a little trick, a secret tip...a golden nugget, if you will...how to create multiple looks for your bed (or sofa!) using only a single set of pillows! I actually stumbled on this genius idea because of my chronic indecision, but looks like I got the last laugh on that one!

I think people can be divided in to two camps....Colgate or Crest, mayonnaise or Miracle Whip, dijon or yellow mustard, toilet paper hanging over or under...you get where I'm going with this? Bed makers and sloppy pigs. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme...obviously I'm a bed-maker. (Not to be confused with bed-wetter.)


For as long as I can remember, I've been in the bed-maker's camp. It's the very first thing I do every morning, and makes me feel like I've accomplished something. Almost like if nothing else gets done all day, at least I made my bed! #smallvictories

Also, Mr. SP grumbles less about the number of throw pillows when he's not tripping over them!

Now about this trick....when working on our Master Bedroom for the One Room Challenge, I couldn't decide if I wanted a trellis pattern or the malachite for the throw pillows, and pink or green for the shams. But thanks to Loom Decor's create-your-own pillow option, I didn't have to choose!

I simply opted for different, coordinating fabrics for the fronts and backs, and now I have the look of four pillows with only two! And I can flip and flop, mix and match, depending on my mood, and create new looks for my bed everyday. #mindblown

And how about two bonus looks?! Since I opted for different coordinating pillows for the adjacent chairs, I'm able to rotate them to the bed, as well. I'm telling you, bed-making is fun! #Ineedalife

Not everyone thinks I have too many pillows. (Mr. SP, Maggie is definitely not on the bed!)

So which look is your favorite? And even more important...which bed-making camp are you in?! (Don't worry, we can still be friends if you never make your bed. I won't judge you. Much.) ;)

  1. Love the double sided pillow.

    I only make my bed for special occasions (and never right when I wake up!) - so I think that puts me in the sloppy pig camp.

  2. Look #3 and #5 are my favorites--hard to choose just one. My husband is a gem, and he makes our bed every morning. :) I like a made bed more than an unmade bed, but I don't like to do the making. And...he even puts the pillows on because he knows I like it!

  6. That is so so smart! I can't pick a favorite look, but I love the malachite pillows! I'm definitely a bed maker and am trying to get my kids into the habit, also #notwinning #workinprogress

  7. I stopped making my bed when Kyle moved in, we hve an opposite schedule and for some reason he didn't appreciate constantly having the bed made over him, not too sure why.. ;)

    I'm in love with look four the most out all of the looks.

  9. I am loving Look 3 and Look 6 and I have to say that I am totally unable to get into an unmade bed at night. That is one of the first things I do in the morning.

  13. My favorite is the incredibly realistic dog pillow. Works on beds, the sofa, even in the back of the SUV. )

  14. I love these looks!! My boyfriend doesn't understand my love of throw pillows (#boysjustdontgetit) and totally judges me for having so many and then putting them on the floor. I'm also not the best bed maker so that doesn't help. Lol! Hope I win!!!

  15. That is genius! I have been hemming and hawing trying to decide! :) I love the pink!

  16. May be a silly question, but where are you hiding your sleeping pillows? Or do you sleep on these pretty pillows???

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sleeping?! Silly...we don't actually sleep on the bed!! ;) Totally kidding...the bed/sleeping pillows are propped up behind the Euro Shams. xoxoxo

  17. I really don't think I could pick my favorite! The stripes, the floral, the print...I love every little detail!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What an awesome way to change the look without new pillows. I love a made up bed. Instantly makes a room feel tidy!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love Look 3 - makes those colors pop! And oh sweet Maggie...she loves ALL the looks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am definitely a sloppy pig. My bed never is made unless company is coming. Even then, it depends on the company! If it's someone I don't know well, the bed gets made, otherwise it stays unmade. My husband and I actually have separate sleeping blankets, and neither of those blankets are used to make the bed. It's a mess. Totally in love with look #6, btw!

  21. Making the bed is a must first thing in the morning! I love all the different styles you've done - what an awesome idea to have so many options! Love your work Cassie

  22. Making the bed is my number one rule :)
