I was getting a bit tired of my bed linen of late. The subtle hues, the safe neutrals and the consistent way I would safely arrange each pillow on the bed. Every. Single. Morning.
Not anymore. In a light bulb moment, I realised that with a quick trip to Spotty and few hours spent in my sewing room I could transform the mundane effort of making the bed into a creative experience. Seriously, pillows are one of the easiest sewing project to tackle and you get more bang for your buck when you make them yourself!
Five new pillows, each reversible with a different pattern or fabric on each side makes this collection of pillows work twice as hard for minimum effort. I made simple pillow slips, no zips and the little drummer cushion was once a skirt I adored but many moons ago and had little use sitting in my wardrobe.
I'm mindful I share this lovely space with a very adorable, but manly man. I always think of him and his tastes when decorating our room. Florals and girly-ness are always at a minimum but the quilt I made gets good use at the bottom of our bed to add some much needed colour.
All the arrangements you see above are the same pillows in each bar one...which is the Paris inspired print from Provincial Living thats in the first few photos. Having them reversible means, whatever my mood at bed making time, I can go bright and bold, calm and tonal or a bit of each. All for the cost of a couple of metres of fabric!
How do you dress your bed?
Do you love changing it up from time to time and adorning some colour combinations?
