Fantasy vs Reality: My Bed

Remember when I started this blog and I wanted to share lots of Fantasy v Reality posts so that we could all feel better about ourselves and our less than perfect homes? I wanted to show Life Unstyled. Get it? UN-styled. Well the blog evolved and those types of posts have been few and far between. However, I’m always up for sharing my own messy side of life so here you go. Life is messy and perfection is boring. You’re welcome.

Pictured above is the ‘Fantasy’. It’s where we want to live. It’s where we live in our Pinterest day dream world where everything is bright and airy and glowy.

Below is ‘Reality’. It’s where we really live, where pillows are used to support our backs when reading, not just plumped prettily in a nonchalant “I just threw these here, but aren’t they perfect?” way that actually took ages to style. And where the lighting is quite frankly just crap.
