Our master bedroom is one of my favorite spots in our house.
It really doesn’t have anything to do with how it’s decorated. One of the reasons I love it so much is because it’s the only area in the house that isn’t covered in toys or kid film.
And at the end of the day, when I’m completely wiped out, there is really nothing better than crawling into a soft bed and not having to worry about pulling a stuffed animal or toy car out from behind my back. And speaking of my back, when I looked at the photos I realized our bed looks like we desperately need a new mattress since you can see two dented in spots. We have a mattress with air chambers. I assure you it is most definitely not sad when you lay down on it 😀
My next favorite thing is my must have – a big ‘ol white duvet. We have a queen sized bed with a king sized duvet. My husband likes to cocoon at night. He wraps the duvet around him and rolls. If we didn’t have the extra large size I would be left out in the cold on my side of the bed. Not good my friends! And I like a white duvet because it is so versatile. I even do plain white sheets. Switch out your pillows or add a quilt and you’ve got an entirely different look. Easy. I like easy.
In the spirit of keeping things simpler, I’m thinking about picking up some new pillowcases I recently found at Parachute. Their pillowcases are fitted more like a sham with a back envelope closure that keeps your pillow from slipping out. No more shaking back into place. Sounds pretty good to me!
I’m also intrigued with their simplified bedding set. It comes with fitted sheet, two pillowcases, and a duvet cover. No flat sheet. It got me thinking. Do you really need a flat sheet if you’ve got a comfy duvet covering you? I usually fuss with the flat sheet at night. It gets pulled too far to one side or it ends up bunched at the bottom of the bed, etc. Might be nice to not have to mess with it.
So I’m wondering, do any of you sleep without a flat sheet? Is it something you would try?
