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.

  1. I actually love the contrast of the snug, smooth fit on the headboard with the softer, wrinkled look of the pillows. The texture of the throw is wonderful, and the art is just right. You have an such an incredible eye for pulling things together to create a look that's pure perfection.
