1 Bed | 4 Ways

Hey friends, thanks so much for your response to the latest Sugarplum Style! I’m thrilled you love those posts…and hope you scooped up the beaded bracelet trio while the Hi Sugarplum exclusive offer is still going!

Today I’m excited to share a little trick, a secret tip…a golden nugget, if you will…how to create multiple looks for your bed (or sofa!) using only a single set of pillows! I actually stumbled on this genius idea because of my chronic indecision, but looks like I got the last laugh on that one!

I think people can be divided in to two camps….Colgate or Crest, mayonnaise or Miracle Whip, dijon or yellow mustard, toilet paper hanging over or under…you get where I’m going with this? Bed makers and sloppy pigs. Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme…obviously I’m a bed-maker. (Not to be confused with bed-wetter.)



For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in the bed-maker’s camp. It’s the very first thing I do every morning, and makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something. Almost like if nothing else gets done all day, at least I made my bed! #smallvictories

Also, Mr. SP grumbles less about the number of throw pillows when he’s not tripping over them!

Now about this trick….when working on our Master Bedroom for the One Room Challenge, I couldn’t decide if I wanted a trellis pattern or the malachite for the throw pillows, and pink or green for the shams. But thanks to Loom Decor’s create-your-own pillow option, I didn’t have to choose!

I simply opted for different, coordinating fabrics for the fronts and backs, and now I have the look of four pillows with only two! And I can flip and flop, mix and match, depending on my mood, and create new looks for my bed everyday. #mindblown

And how about two bonus looks?! Since I opted for different coordinating pillows for the adjacent chairs, I’m able to rotate them to the bed, as well. I’m telling you, bed-making is fun! #Ineedalife

Not everyone thinks I have too many pillows. (Mr. SP, Maggie is definitely not on the bed!)
