Step 1: White and Tight

Sheets are the foundation of a properly made bed. We like to keep it simple with crisp white sheets, pulled and tucked nice and tight.

Step 3: Pillows on Pillows on Pillows

Ahhh the long debated topic between husband and wife…”Why do we need so many pillows on the bed when we just take them off at night?” Because they’re pretty, that’s why!  Depending on the size of your bed the number and style of pillow will vary. See below for an easy pillow guide.

Step 4: Do-Duvet

Long gone are the days of a “bed in a bag.” A fluffy duvet makes all the difference,  and duvet covers are a great way to change the entire style of the room as they can be changed seasonally.  Folding the duvet at the bottom of the bed creates a beautiful showroom worthy finish.
