A waste of time, or a pretty decorative touch? How many are too many for the bed?
1 is too many, but my wife wouldn't agree
Less throw pillows is the current look.
I just bought three new throw pillows for decoration & I love how they transformed the look of the bed. I also have two euro pillows as well as the two for sleeping on.
At night they just go in the corner or on the storage box & I literally throw them on in the morning after making the bed!
Completely agree with 7weed1!
I'm still in two minds about throw pillows. I have a couple and I love them, but they end up on the ground when I go to bed. Maybe it's worth investing in a storage box like LouieT!
I have 9 on my bed.. I use four and pop the decorative cushions on a chair.. It's nice to come home to a well made bed.
I have 3 - they add colour to the room without overpowering it. And they provide exercise as my better half and I compete with each other to toss them into the armchair at night without having them fall on the floor. He has a very good frisbee-type toss, I must say.
We have our sleeping pillows and 2 dress pillows which match the whatever bedspread in on at the moment.....I think any more is just prissy clutter!! And don't get me started on all those 'don't sit here' cushions on the couches.....
Husband isn't a fan of throw pillows - in his opinion, they're called "throw pillows" for a very good reason - to be thrown right out of the room!
He sounds fun!
@telperien: your hubby is missing the skill required to lodge a pillow in a chair without hitting the back or sides. It's an art, I tell you.
If he played AFL he could handball it in.
It requires more finesse than that. He needs to have played tiddlewinks.
How can he go into a pub and tell his mates he's been playing tiddlywinks? That's like guys who look at a picture of Big Bang theory and not notice Penny, lol!
Hmm, try him on the Penny test, my hubby saw a blokes head first!
Lucky he didn't drop the phone!
He's like every other guy who goes into a pub, Chookchook. He lies. Biggest fish caught, most magnificent mark taken, greatest sales pitch made, whatever. But so long as he keeps landing those cushions in the chair without hitting the sides, I'll be impressed, and that's all that matters.
Gotta love husbands - but to get back to the original question how many can you handle taking off each night, finding somewhere to put them other than the floor, and putting them all back the next day and how long you can keep that up for. I don't think we are as precious as our US cousins when it comes to this.
7weed - there is method in your madness - an unmade bed gathers no dust mites, they like the warmth of a made bed to breed. I have an excuse for everything.
I didn't think kids and bed making went in the same sentence.
It's good to pull the covers back and air the bed out before you make it.
I will think of this poll now every time i see a bed half covered in pillows...
Houzz derailed many of my thoughts years ago!!
@oldroo - in a good way though right? ;)
As for pillows, i stop at 3. Less is more, I say.
Definitely made life a lot easier misshayley.
An individuals taste, up to no ones opinion but your own !!!!
Reading this thread, the picture I got (maybe from another discussion because I'm sure I've seen this talked about before?) was a dividing line somewhere between
a few extra pillows which enhance the bed aesthetically, are potentially useful for sitting up to read a book, and are easily stored elsewhere when not required
too many extra pillows which make the bed look less like a bed and more like a pillow factory, are potentially useful for an attempt at a world record pillow fight, and keep you up all night moving them when you need access to the bed.
........................ and for falling over when you need to answer a hasty nature call in the wee small hours.
Yeah, as we get older we don't tend to bounce as well.
@macymacmaples That's how I roll. I have two cushions to use as backrests for reading, watching tv etc, and then just my regular sleeping pillows. I can't stand pillows going on the floor.
