I was a hotel maid as a teenager and we did not have this method of bedding, but we did launder the bedspreads occasionally. But still, not between every single guest. Knowing how people lay on hotel beds with their clothes and shoes on and do who-knows-what on top of the bed, the triple sheet method makes sanitary sense and practical laundering sense.
I decided I wanted to replicate the idea in our bedroom. I looked around my home and found an extra flat sheet or two and some vintage white on white embroidered pillowcases that I had forgotten about. Since it is spring and nearly summer, I decided I would sandwich a light blanket in between the sheets instead of our comforter. Next up, the sheets, blanket, and pillowcases were washed to make everything as fresh as possible. I sandwiched everything together and here's our summer ensemble. I'm thinking how fun it would be to change the look anytime by simply changing the top flat sheet, and adding an accent pillow, or throw.

Here is wonderful video on creating a comfortable, beautiful, and inviting bed. I am going to start collecting white bedding components like he suggests. I have a few, but not many. I also love the organized and attractive look of his linen closet. I am so excited because I'm buying my daughter's small armour (pre-sale at her garage sale) to store my linens. At the moment, I have bed linens stashed all over the house and many need to be tossed out. How do you like to dress your bedroom for summer? Do you have a favorite bedroom look? One thing I love to do is to cut fresh flowers from the garden and place them on the nightstand. It's lovely to wake up to a cheery bouquet first thing in the morning.
