The day has finally arrived. All of the anticipation and anxiousness has culminated itself into this one moment: the bed delivery. Pretty dramatic for a piece of furniture, right? Well, this isn’t just a bed. It’s a BIG GIRL bed. I talked about our purchase a couple of months ago, and since we placed our order, we’ve been waiting and waiting for Crate and Barrel to let us know when the fateful day would arrive. Apparently our bed was made by one handed old men and spun with pure gold for the amount of time it took to get here, but that’s beside the point. All hail the Tate bed in all of its ivory fabric glory!
The sleek, low platform bed is definitely something we’re getting used to, but we’re super pleased with the purchase. Just the fact that we’re now able to lean up against something solid while we read at night (ie. not the window blinds) makes this bed purchase a win in our book. We’re also really pleased with the fabric choice. The standard khaki color was nice, but this smooth ivory will be super versatile when we change out the bedding in the future – which I’m sure will happen very often. In case you forgot, here is what our college-esque bed frame looked like before the arrival of Mr. Tate.
Ho hum. Oh, and in case you’re wondering where our awesome paisley bedspread went to, no need to fret. We’re in what I like to call “Scott Summer Mode” which means we strip down our bed to the bare bones (ie. the throw only) so that the hubs doesn’t sweat himself to death at night. Nice visual, huh? Despite the fact that our house is a cool 75 degrees everynight and I’m perfectly happy to be doused in down all year round, we use just our throw in the summer time to keep things cool. I’m not bitter. Does anyone else have a “summer set” of bedding?
Now that we have a real bed, we also have real design details, like this perfectly tufted headboard. Swoon. It’s just enough detail to get me worked up, but not too traditional to make me wanna spew. I’m down with cabriole legs and highboys, but just not in my home for some reason. Clean lines is the way to go for this abode.
Kinda like in our new “footboard”. Platform beds don’t have a footboard, which is something we struggled with in our bed decision. We didn’t want our bedding to always be sliding off the end of the bed, so hopefully with this design our bedding can stay nicely tucked into our faux footboard and stay on our bodies, where it belongs. How do you guys like the new digs? Are you pleased as punch about the fabric choice like we are?
