Lately I've taken to painting everything white. White walls, white floors … you get the picture. No doubt easy to change when I tire of it, but for now I just can't get enough of it. And having achieved uniform whiteness in the bedroom, I had high hopes when it came to taking a few snapshots of my sleeping space. I mean, how hard could it possibly be to capture said uniform whiteness in photographic form? HARD, that's how hard. Anyway, enough of my I-want-to-include-my-own-photography-on-my-blog woes 'cause I wanna talk about my bed.
I've been wandering around with an idea of how I'd like my bed to look ever since spotting these images on Netta-Natalia's old blog Likainen Parketti. My choice of fabric - a linen duvet cover - was a foolish one. Both cutting and sewing a straight edge proved nigh on impossible as the fabric continually pulled in opposite directions … but I soldiered on, cursing merrily along the way! I had hoped the finished result would include a few more of those natural creases synonymous with a lived-in linen look, but achieving a snug fit plus creases just wasn't to be.
