sajerd,

lymie2long replied before I had a chance! A fitted sheet is the best thing I've seen. Make sure to pull it tight. Since there's one side that doesn't show, probably the top where the headboard is, you can pull the sheet snug and use upholstery pins on that top side to keep it tight without showing anything.

I found a gorgeous piece of remaindered upholstery fabric once while traveling. It was one of those happiest of finds, I wasn't looking for anything, just happened to see it and immediately knew it would look perfect in my bedroom. Problem was, I didn't want to reupholster my chairs and while standing in my room, looking around, it struck me: it would be a perfect box spring cover! I just folded it under and pinned all around-you can't tell it wasn't made just for that purpose!

There is no function to having a dozen pillows piled on a bed. Homegoods stores perhaps show this to sell pillows but in my opinion it is an absurd (and recent) affectation. The worst thing is fussing with all those stupid pillows when you are tired and just want to go to bed . . . or. There is usually no place to put them. I like to have a blanket on top of the sheet, not just a duvet which can be HOT, especially if the bed is shared with another body giving off body heat. A bed should be comfy when you are occupying it, not when you are just looking at it.

What does one do with all the decorative pillows when using the bed to sleep, or the sofa to sit on?
