Loving the unmade bed

I have developed a love for unmade beds. Everytime I visit someone´s house I peek into the bedroom, hoping that the linnens will lay there all bundled up.
Even though I love climbing down into a bed that is neatly made I think an unmade bed is better looking.  Here are two beds that I have photgraphed.
Above a bed in Lincoln Nebraska.
And below a bed at a castle here in Skåne, Sweden. They are equally beautiful.

We rarly make the beds in our house. How about you?

Loving the puppy! How adorable! and yes in our home the bed stays unmade almost everyday as well :-)

I love an unmade bed. I also love a made bed! However, the latter is a rare event in our busy home. My husband is up at 4 to milk the cows, and I stay there sprawled out until my babes sing out for their mama – and so the day begins…
Love the blog.
Thanks for sharing!

Jenny: I love to sleep in in the morning. Getting up at 4 is quite early even though cows are nice =)

I don’t think we ever make the beds.

But I hear that is better for the airation of the bed and keeps out mites and such.

That’s my excuse anyways :-)

The bed only gets made on the weekends at my house. Thank you for validating my lifestyle choice. ;)

Oj vilken rolig fotoidé :)
Min säng är oftast obäddad. Kanske drar lite i täcket så att det ser lite bättre ut. Ibland.

I love the picture from the castle. Which castle is it? I only make my bed when my grandmother Olga is visiting.

Jenny: Thanks! The castle is called Kronowall.
I went there for a shoot last year. And since we were there early they had not had time to make the beds in the hotel rooms.

The slogan on my blog since 2008 is “make love not beds”

Love this! So realistic :)

Jenny: hahha that´s brilliant!! Love the slogan. However I do have some friends who are big fans of BOTH Lovemaking and Bedmaking =)
Now I am gonna go check out your blog Carolyn!

Heja dig Jenny!
Nu ska jag aldrig mer i livet förfasas över att vi aldrig bäddar sängarna…
Nu ska jag se det vackra i det istället, din förtjänst =))

Fin helg
önskar Sofia
Jenny: Bästa grejen! och trevlig helg på dig med Sofia!!

Jag bäddar sängen kanske en gång av hundra. Ibland går jag förbi sovrummet och tänker “Borde jag bädda?” Men så kommer jag på att det ändå snart är kväll och man ska sova igen :) Trevlig helg! //Petronella

Jag(och resten av familjen) bäddar sängarna för att vi har hundar. Bäddad säng är tusen gånger bättre än sand och skräp i sängen :

Jenny Ja det kan jag verkligen tänka mig. Ikväll kan även jag se fram emot att lägga mig i en bäddad säng. har bäddat rent och vädrat. Gu´så skönt!
