A Scandinavian Bed

When Patrick and I lived in Dublin and traveled around Europe we found it was common to have two twin size duvets on a larger bed. I've mentioned that we are fitful sleepers so we loved having our own blankets but still getting to sleep in the same bed.

Our new place has a big master bedroom so we finally took the plunge and bought a king size bed! Now that I'm in the market for new bedding I'm thinking of "going Scandinavian" and doing two comforters with a blanket covering them at the end. What do you think, too weird or genius idea?

  1. I actually really like the idea of this ... no more worrying about who has more of the blanket in the middle of the night during winter brrrr !! I love Scandinavian design ...

    Love Chrissi xo


  2. I think that's a great idea!
    Jason and I have a queen but I always buy king sized duvets and that's worked well with us. If we ever end up with a king, I think I might want to try this!

  3. This might be genius! I might even go so far as to get a European king (two twins put next to each other) one day! We are fitful sleepers too! :)
