I Am The World's Severest Bed Stylist


First off, let me say we have a good friend who is a bed stylist--or a soft stylist, in the inustry lingo--and I wish her a rich and rewarding career for as long as she wants it.

That said, I think the evidence, at least in Jason Miller's kid bed round-up in today's New York Times, is overwhelming that no bedding is where it's at. I mean, maybe let the kid have a blankie or something at bedtime, after the lights are off, but otherwise, zip. Zilch. Zero.

Nosiree, it's the only way to go. I'm gonna go sweep the mountain of stuffed animals and Pillow Petz and dolls into an Ikea bag and stuff them in the closet right. Now.

Well, first, I'm going to head over to ducduc and straighten that yellow mattress out so it lines up with that orange drawer. That thing is bugging the hell out of me.

I always liked this one we made for our friends: but I think when the time comes we'll forego Bauhaus and design references and I'll make my son some kind of kooky vehicle/boat/train/ giant Lego bed.
