Life around here is utter chaos almost all of the time. While I wish I could say I live in an orderly, beautiful home, it very rarely is. We are busy, and even though I know that a well made bed each morning would make everything feel just a little less so, I still don't manage to remember to do this. Yet, it is my absolute habit to make up and straighten out the bedding before I head to sleep. Go figure.
I am trying to embrace the little moments just a bit more, all of life's messy stuff. I know that one day it will all be something I look back on and wish for just a few more minutes of. But one thing I can say for now, is that these beautiful unkempt and tousled beds make me think there is more than just a special moment to find in the day-to-day, perhaps there is even beauty.
It is nothing if not extremely difficult, to style bedding in a casual slightly messy way. So hard. When I see these gorgeous spaces styled just so, it makes me truly appreciate not only the small details that life brings my way, it certainly makes me see that my messy bed is a representation of my very full life and how busy my many wonderful things keep me.;
Given the extreme skill it requires to make blankets look lived in and casual, without being a straight up mess, I am keenly aware of the amazing efforts of the stylist behind these images. And now I have taken us in an entirely different direction from gratitude and chaos to photography and interiors... yep, that is just about how this old head of mine works. Eek
