I just read a great "how to" on making a bed look messy, on a blog called Funky Junk Interiors. And I am itching to give this a try.
Normally I make my bed... just so... each morning. And I like it.
I really don't mind making it.
But recently I've come across a few intriguing photo shots of shabby chic crumbled up, messy looking beds that have me... well let's just say, fantasizing. They look so romantic. I think I can do it. I'm going to try.
Here is how my bed at the Beach House normally looks:
Now I am leaving for a while to go try this... messiness...
Ummmnn ....that was fun.
I really love how it turned out and it was pretty easy, interestingly enough I had a duvet cover I purchased 2 years ago on sale that I never used, because I really like my rag quilt, and I was thinking I would have to switch it out entirely.
But with this idea from Funky Junk Interiors I could use it with my rag quilt, as an accent piece...yippeee! Get that pretty baby out of the closet!
And i just crumpled up that duvet cover and fluffed it up on top of the rag quilt, and viola!
Here is the result...
Pulled the bedsheets down a bit..
I just had to take another shot.
I love the new crumpled up look!
And I have to show you the the cute little nite table that came with the house!
It stands on the right side of the bed.
I just gave it a fresh coat of Behr Cottage white paint.
It's chippy is ala natural, cause it got painted 4 years ago!!
The adorable plate on top serves as a landing spot at night for a drink, glasses, etc... I got it for 25 cents at a thrift!
Seashell found on the beach.
I love the touches of aqua in the leaves.
Now I wont feel so bad when by bed's not picture perfectly made.
