Bed

As part of Darrah Parkers's slice of life project. we have to photograph things around our home that are important to us. My bed fits into that category, I love the simplicity of it, I only have white bedlinen and I like to pile the bed high with pillows. I do most of my reading in bed although I tend to fall asleep very quickly, I am currently reading a fantastic book called The London Train by Tessa Hadley. What are you reading?

  1. I love my bed and that's where I do most of my reading too! Makes it hard when you're reading an enormous hardcover as I frequently am. Right now I'm reading several books about balancing work and motherhood, and Educating Alice on my nook.

  2. LOve it. I'm reading several things at once. Usually I mix a non-fiction in with the fiction, unless the fiction has grabbed me so tightly I can't put it down. But, that hasn't happened in a long time.

  3. A very cozy shot! I fall asleep way too quickly when i read in bed, so I try to stick with the couch. I'm currently reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronical by Haruki Murakami, in my effort to dwindle down the list of 1,000 Must Read Books :)

  6. Beautiful and I love the white.
    I always fall asleep too fast to read in bed, but in my living room chair, I'm finishing up a series of novels by Charlaine Harris. ;)

  7. Lovely soft lighting - just right for a bedroom. Your indoor shots are beautiful - you must have really great light in your home. Mine are always dark as the house tends to be a little dark and I struggle with that.

  8. I love the light and the soft tones! It looks so comfortable and inviting, I'd like to sink in there immediately and enjoy those fresh linen! Thanks for the book link - sounds interesting (I bookmarked it)! At the moment I read "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown. I normally read on my way to work and back.

  9. Your bed looks very cozy. I can fully understand why you do most of the reading in bed.

    I am reading The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory. I managed to finish her other book The Constant Princess over Christmas, which must the first book I have read in ages from start to finish.

  14. ...I so agree with the comfy "retreat" idea for a master bedroom. I have my books and even a small love seat and soft stool. But more times than not, I read in my bed and fall asleep with a book in my lap! Such a great Partially Seen shot.

  15. Lovely shot! There is nothing like ending the day in the comfort of bed with a good book. I also can't read for too long at bed time so it takes me ages to finish a book. I'm enjoying having more reading time during the holidays and often sneak an hour or two of daytime reading on the couch which feels very self indulgent! I finished Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones the other which I loved, and have just started Shirley Goodness and Mercy by Chris van Wyk - a memoir set in Johannesburg in the 60's. i am going to add The London Train to my 2011 reading list!

  17. Beautiful! I love my bed, too! Right now, I'm reading (and re-reading) Understanding Exposure and my camera's manual. I normally do most of my reading on the exercise bike, though.

  18. Lovely Justine and looks super comfy. Guilty of reading Christmas magazines right now (got a bunch from my sister in law before she went OS). I will have to get back into some proper lit soon :)
