Pillow Fight

The Pillow Fight
I see this in a lot of homes with the Master Bedroom between Husbands and Wives….
How many decorative pillows should you have for your bed?

I am currently redoing my own bedroom and my husband has one request, “Do we need so many pillows?” He refuses to make the bed because I have a specific way that I like it made.

Why do we need all those pillows? Because they are pretty and luxurious and what most girls like. I get a variety of answers on the subject when I ask my clients. I guarantee you that every home out there has a variety of ways they have made their pillow statements.  Have fun with it and don’t put pressure on yourself about having it the “right way”. I always say, “It’s what you think is beautiful and if you think it is beautiful it will show.” My answer to my husband is –  “I make the bed up so why should it matter to you” xoxo

First consider shams for the back when you sit up and read or if you watch tv in your room. It is a good start to any pillow statement.

 Good pillowcases are always a great investment, the softer the better. I always like to get a spare set.


Then finally consider a few decorative pillows. You can go ready-made

  or use custom pillows, they can add a personal touch to the bed. Ones that only you have for your home.
