    So how many of you have maroon sheets?

    Or, worse still, black?

    I could hazard some guesses but that wouldn't be cricket.

    I have a king size, a double and a single bed. I buy white sheets for the king size, cream for the double and blue for the single so I can tell which is which in the cupboard. I used to match the sheets to the duvet set but got sick of trudging up and down stairs because I had brought the wrong size of sheet for the bed. I suspect I'm not ticking the "posh" boxes but it is practical.

    I see the horrible babygro - aka the onesie - is frowned upon. Who'd a thunk it? Lol

    I hardly dare open the link as I'm sure that hiding the ironing pile in there is an absolute no-no and therefore I've failed already.
    No maroon or black sheets though, we only have white.

    Dog on the bed instead of a faux fur throw? Hmmmm!

    Think the unmatched look might tick a box that William has forgotten about. A certain amount of coordination would be required though. Small light blue check pillow cases can work well with plain white or cream bedding.

    This chap is so ripe for parody :). Future articles could include How Posh is YOUR Classroom? How Posh is YOUR Garden Shed? How Posh is YOUR Under-Stairs Gloryhole?

    Here, in the gutter, it's whatever floats down in Autumn.

    White, high thread count, flat cotton sheets. No cushions. Pillows laid flat. At present, pale blue striped duvet cover and pristine white pillowcases. No pet accessories.

    Bet you thought I had maroon silk, aspen! :eek:

    I can't remember what my bed looks like.

    I refuse to click on that link.
    My bedroom is my bedroom. Big bed. Cotton bed sheets and covers like most people in this day and age. Scabby Persian rug that the dug sleeps on. Nice 1930s dressing table. Bookshelves. Massive Yucca plant that cuts me to ribbons every time I brush past it ( I read somewhere years ago that Yuccas are tacky) I have a blackout blind that would no doubt be "wrong" but I like darkness.

    I hate onesies. Ugh, I have something in common with that man.

    I haven't clicked either. I generally have a daft Lurcher on my bed. I'm hoping that it's 'non - u'. Couldn't bear to be posh....

    Yes, I have a blackout blind and some heavy, navy velvet curtains for maximum blackout.

    It's the only way to sleep.

    Surely this guy is developing into a parody of himself? What a twit!! Whenever I read his stuff, I 'hear' him speaking in the voice of that pretentious critic-can't remember his name, but you know the one. He was as false as £7 note!! :rolleyes:

    That little ***** has no idea what he's talking about. I have been in a duke's bedroom (don't ask) and there was no basin. There was, oh horror, a trouser press ,a pink nylon eiderdown and a laundry basket overflowing with unmentionables.
