How Many Is Too Many?

bedroomWhen he turns back the bed, the hubby’s question is always the same.  “Is it necessary to have all these ****** pillows?”  

bedroom“Some of these suckers weigh enough to qualify as weights,” he goes on.

Now those looks don’t work for me, but maybe the rest of you should chime in on how many pillows is too many.

  1. I love lots of pillows on the bed…I have my usual, “sleep pillows”, 2 euros, 2 shams, 2 decorative pillows and one little accent in front…My hubby is used to taking off the pillows and truthfully does it so well…stacked neatly in a corner…he’s a keeper!….Love your bed and the beautiful artwork over it!

    1. You are such a pillow person so I can’t imagine you having too many! The art piece is of woven tar paper strips which explains its appeal to me.

  2. I like the last shot best although at home I have our two sleeping pillows and then five more decorator pillows. I may have to rethink this. 🙂

    1. Rethink to add more or take away?

  3. This got me going.. my husband Francois is the same Linda.. we’ve got our 2 x sleeping pillows each (4), though we each only sleep on 1 each, then comes the ‘layering’.. one on the top and one in front, both sides.. another 4, two in the middle of the mountain,.. then 2 smaller ones, on top of those two, plus my granddaughter gifted me back her first teddy I hand sewed, plus a doggie, plus a dolfin.. oh my! and at night .. they get flung far and wide! .. I love it! xx I wonder why it is that hubby’s dont like pillows?.. xx daily strength to you

  4. I agree completely—-a bed is not made properly unless it has beautiful, elegant, color-coordinated , inviting pillows that go on the floor at night (aka floor pillows) 😀😀. Seems all hubbys disagree 😀😀

    1. Ours end up on the floor but they hit the wall first!

  5. True confessions. I have lots of pillows that only go on the bed if I think some foreigner might venture into my top floor all by itself master suite. On those other days the bed does not get made. Do not judge me, please. 🙂 No complaints from Dear about pillows, though.

    1. Ellen, you are a funny girl! Foreign visitors are on their way if they can get into the country.

  6. I hope you don’t mind a dissenting voice. I like “or this” or perhaps one of the square pillows, too. We have 3 regular-sized pillows; one for him and two for me.

    1. I’m loving all our differences.

  7. I think all husbands are alike. I’m usually first in bed but if he is he slides all of them on my side! So I still have to move them. I like your bedroom. Everything looks great.

  8. I’ve heard this before by many. Men have no care of such things. I’m first in bed most nights, so I move the pillows. He’s last out in the mornings, so I come along later and put pillows in place. It’s comical when he does it. I guess he doesn’t complain too much anymore because he doesn’t have to do it often. But, he used to complain every time. I feel your pain!

  9. Oh too funny! I throw cushions off the bed nightly. Got rid of 2 large Frech Pillows. 3 more in closet can’t part with yet!!! They just look too inviting on the bed all day to be practical❤️

  10. Can you have too many, after all these years my hubby just takes them off every night and stacks them in a chair and never says a word…I think he just gave up!

  11. As many as you like.
    Love the look of your room, esp the art above the headboard.

    1. Glad you noticed the art. I’m a weaver so the woven strips of painted roofing material had great appeal.

  12. We only use one pillow each,but like the bed to look nice in the daytime, so have a few fancy pillows too which tone with the bedspread.

  13. Your bed looks perfect. We have this same exchange each night, but I’m keeping my 10. Good exercise!

  14. I like to be surrounded in pillows so have 6 standard pillows on our bed. I always have a pillow in a position I like instead of having to move around to “re-position” a pillow to my body. The man sticks to his 2 so the rest are mine 🙂

  15. The more pillows, the better!!!

  16. Hysterical !!! My husband too every night complains!!! lol I ignore him – love a ton of pillows – hate to tell you I have 14!!! On my king size bed here in DC

  17. I love the, lots of pillow look, but it’s too much trouble to move and find a spot for the extras every night.

  18. There is no such thing as too many pillows!
