Pillow Talk

I thought this was kind of fun. Did you know your pillows can say a lot about you? According to Elizabeth Mathews, a designer featured in the Decemeber issue of House Beautiful, your pillows can help describe your personality.

I'm a mix of 3 and 4 so I guess I'm a TAILORED ROMANTIC. And just for fun, why don't we put a fortune cookie twist on this game and turn it into: "I'm a TAILORED ROMANTIC....in bed!" So tell me, what do your pillows say about you?

Well, first off I'm a 0 on this scale. It's the minimalist - owns a pillow and generally uses it for sleeping but never uses it for show. But that's not why I'm here today, I'm here because my mother like yourself is a 3, and last time I visited she put a pillow in my room and it was fabulous. It was one of those heavy memory foam pillows and later when I expressed my fondness for the pillow she said I could take it only to retract the offer when she realized which pillow I was talking about. (I capitalized "I" in the last sentence for emphasis) I assumed when she retracted the offer that she did so because she slept with the pillow, but I found out I was wrong, because she also vetoed my father's offer of his mirror image pillow and there is no humanly possible way for a 5 foot 4 inch woman to sleep with two of those pillows. Come to find out these pillows came with the bed and no one actually sleeps with them, but the pair play a role in the Tailored arrangement which no one actually knows about but my mother. Frankly I'm still in shock and my father just looked at me like, "what can be done when even reason is abandoned?"

My perception of the world is still damaged from that conversation.

Well this would say that I am "tradition with a twist" in bed but I'd like to think that I am a little more exciting than that :)

Fun! I'm a Tradition with a twist - I think I knew that!

I'm also a "tailored romantic" but only when I make the bed. Most days I'm just lazy!!

I too am a mix between 3 and 4. I love this game! I think I might be more of the Romantic type. I want to let my husband make the bed tomorrow and see what he comes up with. ha!

Drew is a modernist (which is the story of his life. he'd probably tell you that the word modern is very modern, and give an explanation.) I'm more of the traditionalist (in bed..hehe). If I had more money, I'd be the romantic. That's how it was when my parents took care of my decor.

Looks like I'm a Romantic Bohemian. Hope that's a good thing. :)
