I don’t share well… the covers that is!

I don’t know about you guys but I’m no good at sharing the covers (or dessert but that’s a whole other story). Now why am I telling you this? Well, we are upgrading to a king size bed soon and I’m starting to look at bed linens and it might be weird but I’m leaning towards getting two twin sized down comforters and duvets instead of one king size.

If you look at the article from which I took the header image you will see that I’m not alone! It’s apparently a common thing in Scandinavian countries! I’m gonna put the blame squarely on my heritage now since I’m Swedish and Danish.

There are a couple of factors at play here. The first I already mentioned…. I’m no good at sharing. The second is I hate making the bed. I’ve read a bunch of the studies about how making your bed affects your productivity, blah blah blah… I just don’t care. Let me rephrase… I must not care enough. It ranks low on my list of things that need to be done. In fact, the other day I tried to make the bed. Do you know what happened? It tried to suck my pregnant self in and wanted me to stay all day! Anyhow, now I’m looking at options and I think if I find a solid or a small pattern for the duvets it could look ok. I may be trying to just make myself believe that but either way I’m pretty sure it’s gonna happen.

Here are a couple of options from ikea that I have considered:

alvine-stra-duvet-cover-and-pillowcase-s-white__0150800_PE308877_S4

ikea

I think I’m leaning towards the blue and white stripes. Any suggestions? I’m open 🙂

    I love the idea! I think you should go with the white and add “HIS” and “HERS” or “Mr.” and “MRS.” with some sort of iron on stuff.

    Or does it mean that, hey, these are mine, and for some reason, these are important to me. I don\46#39;t want to share them. It may seem silly to us that the kid doesn\46#39;t want to share his green car today, but someday that can translate into healthy boundaries and an understanding that some things are for sharing, and others don\46#39;t have to be – rather than a sense of guilt and that one should always share no matter what.
