The Comfy Bed

What makes for a great bed? Is it the pillows? The sheets? The overall look? I'm sure the answers vary a lot between people. I use to like lots of decorative pillows on my bed for show. But after awhile I got tired of taking them off every night. Now my ideal bed is one that makes me want to dive right in. More fluff less show I suppose. A really good mattress, cotton sheets, and 4 standard pillows. Done. How about you?

Oh, what a timely post Miss Leesa Bee! We just purchased a new big, 18" mattress set and I am wondering why we waited so long? We also went w/ Memory Foam pillows. I bought a new set of 500 tc sheets from Wamsutta's hotel line...in Mineral blue color (sigh)... Yesterday I cranked up the AC, crawled into bed under my fluffy duvet, and napped like a baby for 30 minutes. Heaven! Best money I've spent in a long time!

Hi Lisa. I've been enjoying your blog. You are so right about having a nice fluffy bed to get into at night. I think great sheets make a bed too. I've heard the new bamboo sheets that are out are heavenly, but I haven't tried them yet. I've gotten away from having a lot of decorative pillows on the bed too....moving them every night does get old.

I love pillows too, but for me it's all about the sheets - give me high thread count Italian made sheets to slide into and all's right with my world. I admit, a fluffy duvet and maybe a pretty blanket cover makes the bed that much nicer! The luxury linens site I like best is ElegantLinensPC.com, they have so many gorgeous bedding selections to choose from that I could just dream all day. And the sales people are the best, so ready to help when I have questions or just need help deciding on a color. Plus, they sent me a sample pillowcase that I can just return if I decide not to order that particular style. For my money, Italian linens are what make life worth living!

hello ♥ i was looking for comfy bed inspiration when i stumbled across your blog, i love your pondering, i'm in the same place, i'm unsure about how to assemble the perfect place to sleep that means you want to sleep there and only there. there's a wonderful little page in Ctah Kidston's Tips for Vintage Style book all about a proper bed. It talks about all those lovely little things like pastel coloured sheets, vintage lace pillows, the assemblage. Have a peek x
