Orange is my favorite color， but I have trouble coming up with other colors that work well with it. I have a duvet that has an orange greek key border. What else can I pair with it so it won’t look random？ -Lydiadecorative pillow cases
Lydia， there are all sorts of colors that would work well with your orange bedding. Almost any shade of blue would work well because orange and blue are opposites on the color wheel， so they complement each other. Go for another pattern， like a paisley， to contrast the greek key. Karen suggests finding an inexpensive sham set that has both orange and another color in it. Then， use the secondary colors in that sham to draw your color inspiration.
I hate making my bed everyday， but I’m trying to be better. How can I style my bed so it’s more streamlined and doesn’t feel like so much work in morning？
Just focus on smoothing out the sheets tightly to the top of the mattress. Beth suggests not focusing on tons of pillows and instead just pull your sheets and quilt up to the top， and you’；ll be fine. No need to pull everything off.
How many throw pillows are too many on a bed？ –Melinda
We admit they all four of us have around 8 pillows on the bed (including the ones we actually sleep on)， but we admit that if your pillows start to come down your bed halfway that’；s too many. Around one third the way down your bed is a reasonable amount.
Any creative solutions for making the pillows and throws look good in the bedroom， just in case， you know， for some STRANGE reason the bed doesn’t get made every single day？ -Greg
Maybe get a basket where your pillows can live when you’；re in the bed. That way if you don’；t make your bed in the morning， the pillows are neat in the basket. You could also put them on a bench at the end of the bed.

I need pockets, and generally the clothes that I like at second-hand shops don't have any (or enough, or they're fake, or...). So I poked around Instructables hoping for some guidance, and didn't find much. Here's what I did, largely based on this tutorial I found.
Wall brackets are just the sort of thing you don’t know your walls are missing until you have a pair. They’re dimensional, decorative and functional. They’re incredibly versatile, and they work in small spaces and large. And if you get tired of them in one room, put them to use in an entirely different way in another room. What’s not to love?
Ok, its mid season, your living room décor is looking a little tired but you’ve got bills to pay. I’m going to help you transform the entire space for under ￡50. To keep it simple and therefore avoid any unnecessary costs we will split it into three parts- walls, floors and details. Walls and floors is fairly self explanatory I would have thought, details covers things like furniture, layout, accessories and soft furnishings.
