Anyone who knows me also knows of my obsession with my bed. They know of my quest to have the fluffiest, softest most “cloud like” bed known to mankind and by golly, I think I have achieved it! I LOVE a soft, cozy, fluffy, heavenly bed. I mean, seriously after a long hard day doing battle in the trenches of life, is there ANYTHING better than sinking into a deliciously soft bed? I don’t think there is anything that even comes close! Lets face it…you spend nearly half of your life in bed!! What better investment to make than in a place where you spend anywhere from 6-10 hours a day in? First it must start with a good mattress, and that cannot be emphasized enough but then again I know all you savvy readers know this already so no need to belabor the point.?



Then the bedding…aaahhh, the fun part! Get the softest highest thread count sheets you can afford. Ideally try to go for at least a 400 thread count.Today, they happen to be more affordable than ever….and are more readily available in more stores than ever not just very exclusive ones. Then the comforter, it must must must be down, super light, goose down. Remember, fill power is generally determined by the sleep temperature of your room, not the outside temperature of where you live. The fluffier the better! Pillows? Goose down all the way!!!!! At least for me there is no substitute. Like the comforters, most good companies also make different fills for the pillows, think of this as an investment in your sleep therefore in your life and well being. A goods sleep has such a HUGE impact on your day, as we all know. So today I bow down to the softest, fluffiest, baddest, biggest beds I could find………and here they are! What are your secrets for a soft, cozy inviting bed?

I like a soft fluffy bed too, and since our dog sleeps on the bed, it is most important for us to have a washable duvet, in flax color, although I would prefer white!!

Jennifer @ Belclaire House on

Such beautiful bedrooms! My mom used to call me Princess and the Pea because I was so picky about my beds. Ashley Goforth really makes the most inviting beds! After having a baby, I appreciate my bed even more (probably since I spend so little time in it now, ha!) Great Post!

Leesa on

I love all these fluffy beds. It does make me want to jump right back in! I am due for a new comforter…any suggestions. I like high quality like you and don’t skimp when it comes to bedding. One is as pretty as the next though I favor the crisp whites no matter what color the room is its so just clean looking. Fantastic post that will be bookmarked for future use and eye candy.

So fun to pick out bedding. I love all the fluffy beds! Makes me want to go home and jump right in. πŸ™‚

So glad to see you include (photo 12 from top) the work of Womack & Associates of Atlanta. That bedroom was in the 2008 Atlanta Symphony Designer Show House. Also those are a pair of Swank Lightings White Opaline Seguso Lamps by the bed.
Great post as always. Now I must go back to bed.

Tina,

I think we have so much in common! It’s amazing!

My bed is the best place in my house! πŸ™‚ I love white sheet, 600 thread count. It should feel like a cloud! I agree with you. πŸ™‚ Nothing worse than an uncomfortable bed. Save money, but buy a good one. Who doesn’t deserve to have a good night of sleep? Right?

Have a Happy Day!

My bed is always such a mess- the dog sleeps UNDER the shetts- the kids eat play/eat/leave their toys in it- argh…in definite need of a makeover- love all of these fluffy pretties- just gorgeous!!!

Verdigris Vie on

– yup back to bed I go..:-) You always have such an extensive gallery.. The green room is beautiful..

I am one of those people who can’t tolerate an unmade bed. when I was a teen, i would make it before i went to bed.. Today, it has to be made first thing.. and I love layers.. Cover sheet, then matelasse coverlet, and then a light comforter.. I love my bed!

Alexa on

Dude…a cozy comfy bed is the best investment ever. There are days when I seriously get excited about going to bed. Wait what am I saying? That’s every day! I’m actually re-thinking my bedroom style…so these gave me some great ideas…thanks for sharing!

So many beautiful choices. My bedroom is my favorite room in our house. And although I fought the concept forever, we now have an “air” mattress where we can adjust the different sides because my husband likes soft and I prefer firm – the best of both worlds.

Ideezine on

Tina,

Great topic sleep and what makes it sweet. I absolutely love to sleep and I prepare mentally to get the best from it be it a power snooze (20 min.), a nap (1 hour) or full night’s incredible sleep (7-8 hours). My bed is equipped to handle the task easily with the pillows, sheets and mattress the best I can afford.

Additionally, turning the mattress every three months, laundering and rotating bedding (comforters, duvets, blankets flannel sheets cotton sheets etc.) adds to the ambience of sleeping on a cloud for me.

Given that we all define our ultimate bedrooms and sleep requirements differently
as you said it’s getting easier to supply our homes with the best. Given all this I find that I can sleep anywhere.

Great round up of gorgeous, fluffy beds! I like my bed with mattress pad, it makes the bed extra soft on the surface yet firm enough to support my body!

Nice post.

Tina We are definitely kindred spirits!!! I am so with you on a comfy bed, it is a must and it is a must for my guest. I have actually been told my bed is like sleeping in a cloud and you used the same expression!!! I do a little trick when making my bed. I put my extra pillows at the bottom of the bed with the duvet over them and it looks extra fluffy that way. I did a post on this very subject if you want to read it you can go here:

Wow what a great post on such yummy beds!! Makes me want to do a bedroom makeover!! I love white on a bed with lots of cream and maybe some blue or green. I have a pale aqua now but would to change it to a softer green down the road. I got LOTS of great ideas here, so many beautiful favorites, especially those by Phoebe Howard and Ashley Goforth.

OMG I love this post… it couldn’t have come at a better time as I just bought a bunch of new bed linens at the Bella Notte sale over the weekend and have been in heaven sleeping on my new linen sheets! I’m going to do a post tomorrow on my “new bed”.
Thanks for all the fabulous inspiration!!!

carlinc@live.com on

Light goose down, perfect. Bunny Williams, feels as if you are outside & breezy. This is what I have to add. My family & I are 100% linen sheets only for various reasons, plus I am a LIBECO premium seller. For one reason, as a family we have used LIBECO for nearly 20 yrs(tried many always returned). Makes sense that was the very first item (brand) I chose for my little shop of my most favorite things) Plus we cant sleep well on anything else. No luxury simple necessity. Loved Cathy Kincaid bed but I am not an orange fan, so the bed would be just fine CANOPY with round about curtains, cozy!

This is mean! I want to curl up in each one of these beds. To die for…xx

Sizzle and Zoom on

I am very picky about my bed. White sheets. Dust free environment. Curtains that can easily be taken down and washed. A down filled pillow top for the mattress. The very first photo is close to what I like. All were beautiful.

Hamptontoes on

Oh my, I do want to hop in bed now! I love white sheets and white duvets, to me it just looks inviting and super clean! This post makes me think of when I was pregnant with both of my children, my husband would joke with me and say that I was like a bird fluffing my nest! And, still I like my bed to feel like a soft escape from a busy life.

Designs By Pinky on

Oh dear, we need SUCH a total bedroom makeover it isn’t even funny! Our mattress and boxspring are so old it is embarrassing! It always takes a back seat to other things though. I need to bump this up tp the tOP of the list. I LOOOVED so many of these rooms and got an idea for furniture palcement too! We have a long, big room and do ahve a love seat in there. I am now thinking of putting it at the foot of the bed! Love this idea, so thanks!!!! XO, Pinky

Acquired Objects on

OMG I love my bed!!!! First start with a king size bed then add everything you mentioned above and toss open a window and I’m in heaven! I only wish I could stay awake a little longer at night to enjoy my bed more. All the bed images above are beautiful and look jump into worthy!

Annabel Manners on

I couldn’t agree more – luxe bedding is worth every penny. Thanks for all the fabulous ideas!

I have one very luxurious set of sheets that I rotate with the OK ones and I am starting to think that life is too short not to just have the good ones on all the time! The Ashley Whitaker room is so lovely and serene….and so many of the others you have shown.

I am kind of obsessed about linens and all things to make a comfy bed. But, I think I could freshen things up a bit. I know where to look for inspiration – HERE!!!

The Preppy Princess on

First of all, looking at this at the end of the day when I want to crawl bed is so not fair. Waaaahhhh!

How can you not love the Bunny Williams? Or the Phoebe Howard? The elegance is only topped by the snuggle factor, and that is tough to pull off successfully. The Tracery is what really blew my skirt up! (So to speak.)

Thank you for more stunning inspiration!

Chic Coastal Living on

That first bedroom bed looks so yummy….it makes me want to go to sleep…yawn…goodnight! I think I should invest in down. I have a comfy comfy bed with a pillow top and it could get even fluffier!

Sundresses and Smiles on

My friend Devon teases me about all the pillows I have on my bed (boys just don’t get it..). Aside from their importance to my decor, they are also necessary to make my bed extra cushy and comfy!

Lisa on

I love so many of your beautiful examples! I love the formal but soft, crisp white beds the most. This is how our bed has always been. Mattress was specially made firm from edge to edge. Always crisp white sheets 400 count or higher. My husband is a pillow monster so there are always lot’s of them. For summer I do a white cotton RL coverlet and for winter the best fluffy down wrapped in a beautiful white duvet. White matelasse headboard and bed skirt and that’s about it. Pretty simple but absolute heaven to crawl into every night! Our bed is high and our bedside tables are too but still reading light is not sufficient so I think we are going to install swing arm lamps on each side.
Your choices were excellent and your advice is great! Everyone deserves the best at the end of the day!
Thank you so much for your darling comment today. Looks like we just might be cousins!

I agree! I want a fluffy, comfy bed to come home to and retire for the day. Sleep is a reward and one should really invest in it. Definitely loving those upholstered headboards. Have a beautiful day, Kellie xx

Wow! You found some beauties! I like to put a mattress topper (can be down on top of the mattress right under the fitted sheet for a lofty feeling. I am partial to crisp (200 thread count) sheets that have to be ironed. I have had guests say they feel like they are at a hotel….love it!
