Well, I guess they are still around, but let's all agree that they shouldn't be. Okay?
A bed looks so much more cozy and interesting with the right "apparel." In fact, clothing can be great inspiration for the bedding we choose.
I'd like to dress the bed in my son's room like this guy...
I love the stripes, plaid and houndstooth grounded with a neutral overcoat. Wouldn't these fabrics make for a great looking bed?
Better than this anyway...

So far my son's bed has a wardrobe that consists of a striped dress shirt..

and a neutral overcoat.

I'm still looking for the perfect plaid blazer. These are a few I'm considering...

Once I make a decision on the "blazer," I'll be adding some "scarves" (aka pillows). I'm thinking a mix of windowpane and buffalo check plaids in neutral tones.
And, of course, there's the equivalent of the man's monogrammed handkerchief ...

Next time you need to dress a bed, consider taking a look at your favorite fashions. It may just provide inspiration beyond the "bed in the bag."
But, please remember this. Although your bedding may be inspired by clothing, don't ever wear your bedding out in public.
Have a great weekend :)
