"Good night, sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite." Do y'all say this? I have shortened it to "sleep tight" when I tell my boys goodnight but what exactly does that mean? Sleep well? Sleep tight under your covers?
Cut to the chase already. This post is about beds. What kind of bed do you sleep in? Does everyone have a king? We just got a new king bed (delivered while we were out of town the other week. We got home from the airport at 11 PM to find our mattress and box springs leaning against the wall of our bedroom in plastic wrap..I'm not kidding. And no bed frame. Soooo not what I wanted to deal with after 8 hours of air travel with 2 uncooperative children-another story:) ) Any who, back to the important matter. We need a headboard. I need help with this. Trying to figure out shape and fabric to cover it. There are so many options out there thanks to Pinterest but I just can't narrow it down. I'll show you what I've been loving lately...
This is a cool shape. I think you could go bold or go with a subtle patterned fabric with this shape. It's definitely in the running!
This is a nice classic, tailored look. I may want a little more oomph though?!
This I love, love, love! The fabric and the unique shape of the headboard. Such a cool look too against that textured grasscloth wall!
This comes across very soothing and subtle. Maybe it's due to the fact that the room itself is decorated in kind of neutral tones. I like things a little more bright and vibrant but the shape of the headboard could look cool with a patterned fabric.
Love this one too. That fabric is a favorite of mine in every color! I'm liking the idea of a patterned headboard with all white bedding.
Love this one although I do believe it is twin headboards pushed together, but still loving the wavy design! That fabric is pretty rockin' too!
An all time favorite!!!! Love the shape, the fabric, color and the whole vibe of the bedroom!
So tell me which is YOUR favorite???
Also sheets. Where do you buy your sheets? What thread count should I get?? We have used sheets that were given to us for our wedding or either "old timey" hand me down sheets that I swear were my grandparents for our queen bed ( that we swear was really a double.) I know plenty of people sleep in doubles and queens and some say it makes a marriage stronger but in this case, I'm dealing with a 92 on a scale of 1 to 10 for snoring-sorry babe- so in our case a king needed to happen:) In fact the other night I woke up to a freight train or was it snoring, and I did my typical move of reaching over with a forceful arm/fist/hit and I completely whiffed. I hit mattress. For once out bed is so big that I can't even
hit reach him from my side:) I will admit it made me smile. You know I love my hubby but I also love my space. Wow I am Chatty Cathy today. Now you know way more than you ever needed too about our sleeping situation. I think I should end this post now before I write a novel, but do tell me your favorite headboard and sheet recs if you get the chance!!!
