This weekend, my husband and I will finally be buying ourselves a nice bed. Our current bed, if you can even call it that, is no more than a metal frame with wheels. It makes me feel like I am sleeping on an extra-large gurney. When it comes to bedding I like a nice mix of feminine and masculine.
The bed frame I will be getting is this Malm bed from IKEA. Yes, it's IKEA and I know some of you out there don't put the words "nice" and "IKEA" in the same sentence, but I do. I like to think of myself as something of an IKEA superfan. DAAA LINGONBERRY! I'm loving the nightstands that are part of the Malm series. They connect with the back of the headboard to look like one piece. It gives it this whole "hey, I'm really cool bed" feel.
Onto a pretty duvet. At first I was in love with the Cirrus Bedding from Anthropologie, but it's a lot more than I am willing to spend. Then I found the Parachute Duvet at West Elm and it's very similar and half the price. It adds a touch of femininity to the masculine bed. Plus the ruching gives it that undone look, which is good for me, because for some reason my kitten Willow thinks that after I make the bed it's time to run across it at top speed.
After I get those two things I will work on the sheets. I'm thinking stripes and dots. Here are some sheet layering tips from Decor8 which has given me the courage to try layering.
