One Bed, Three Ways

[First and foremost, a note about For Japan With Love (Blogger’s day of silence). The initial goal was to raise $5500, but at the time of writing this, they’ve raised $55,334. Ten times their goal–Incredible!]

Just because I was sick of looking at my bed the same way all winter long, and because while putting away some winter blankets I discovered this white one I’d never used before (wedding gift) I decided to do a little switcheroo on the ole bed.

My pebble comforter has a lighter and darker side to it, here’s a picture I’ve probably shown here before, with the light side of the comforter up:

I don’t think I ever snapped one with the dark side up, but you can see it folded down at the head of the bed in this “gradient” shot (darker at the top, lighter in the middle, white at the end):

Also, covering the whole bed in white looks fabulous! I’m worried about it getting dirty though… Shoes off the bed!

What do you think? Which is your favorite?

Also, for those of you who were wondering how my “make the bed every day” New Year’s resolution was going? (I’m sure you were all on the edge of your seats) Let’s just say my I’ve done it for 39% of the year so far. Yay math. Still, I have been making an effort! Is it sad to say 39% is an improvement? It’s more than 2 days of the week! Not bad?

Changing things up for spring? How are your New Year’s resolutions coming?
Any tips for photographing a bed and actually making it look good?

  1. Once we bought a new comforter and pillows and painted our room, I have been much more motivated to make the bed on a more consistent basis. Now it actually looks “pretty” in our room, so easier to want to make it!!!
