When I moved into my first real apartment in college I spent a ton of time figuring out exactly how I wanted my bedroom to look. It should have been a tip off right there that I would end up at Real Simple—well, that and the stack of back issues of RS I kept on the table at the end of my bed. Because I couldn’t find a bed skirt that went with my duvet cover that wasn’t insanely frilly or girly, I chose to use a fitted sheet to hide my box springs in it’s place.
I’d completely forgotten about this idea until I came across it (and this helpful little tip image) on A Real-Life Housewife.
Now, I have a very tailored bed skirt because I have to use the space under my bed for storage in my tiny room. Tell me, do you use a bed skirt or something else on your bed?
