July 1: Quick-N-Easy


Good morning beautiful people! It’s bright and sunny here in my corner of Indonesia which puts me in a great mood to do mini-assignment #2.

But first, about yesterday’s which was to change the entire bed set. (Or should it be worded as “use new bed sheets”? But it included the use of new & matching pillow-covers so …. beddings?).

Moving on …

So I did change them and once my task was complete, I stood back and nodded in approval. It felt like the entire room experienced a face-lift! The change in colors/design was refreshing, the tidied up arrangement was lovely, the whole space seemed brighter and had that fresh, newly laundered smell. Even the baby jumped up and down the mattress for about 10 minutes of delighted approval πŸ˜€

Such a small & mundane thing to do but it IS a leg up the usual “making up the bed”. This isn’t the first time I changed up the bed-set, and won’t be the last. Of course, I’m not saying we should do this everyday, just that if you’re looking for a quick way to enliven the bedroom (& give you a positive mood boost each time you walk into it), this is the way to do it. The bed occupies a huge space and is usually the focal point of the room, so it makes sense to give it a lota lovin’. Additional kudos for using colors that make you dance!

Yesterday’s mini-assignment inspired today’s which is to simplify another area of mundane living [that has a very huge impact on our mood]: the closet.

More on this tomorrow πŸ™‚


Note: If anyone is wondering why the heck I am writing about something so boring as making up the bed please read this post πŸ˜‚

Note note: I honestly didn’t feel like putting up a photo of the newly made-up bed for this blog post although I guess that would’ve been the right way of doing it πŸ™‚ And putting up a stock photo of someone else’s bed would’ve been downright misleading so I did the next best thing πŸ˜‰

  1. I just changed to my summer bed stuff (how’s that for a precise term? lol, and it is so sunny and cheerful — bright orange sheets and pillowcases, and a light quilt in brilliant yellow with orange paisleys. It makes coming into the bedroom a real treat, so I know what you mean in your post. πŸ™‚

  2. You are so right. New bedding can totally change the look and feel of the bedroom. I recently bought new bedding for my bedroom and have made the bed and tidied up everyday since. I want to see that beautiful bed all made up as it looks so pretty. And complete with little pillows that drives hubby crazy every night, to figure out where to put them in our very small room.
