We recently got a new bed, which meant we needed new everything when it came to bedding. I’m going to just admit it now, guys. At first, I thought my husband was crazy for thinking that I’m obsessed with pillows, but as it turns out, I’m a crazy pillow person. It’s true. I just don’t think you can have enough pillows…like, ever! I kept ordering pillows for our bed, and after realizing I spent literally hundreds of dollars, I had to ask myself, “Is anyone else overly-obsessed with pillows like me?!” It really got me thinking.

I’ve learned there’s no limit to my love for pillows, but you may not love being engulfed by pillows while you sleep. So I’m here to help you find out just how many pillows will work for your bed and the type of pillow person you really are.


So, which one are you?

 

1. The pillow minimalist

I’m a minimalist in many ways. I like to think I was Marie Kondo before there was actually ever a Marie Kondo. 😉 However, pillows bring me joy, so I can definitely admit that less is not more (for me) when it comes to pillows.

If you’re a minimalist pillow lover, you love just the essentials. You have one great sleeping pillow and maybe – if you’re feeling wild – you have a decorative throw pillow in the middle of your bed to pull your room together. Out of all the personalities, you’re likely to spend the least amount of money and time making and unmaking your bed, so kudos to you!


2. The pillow whisperer

My husband is secretly the pillow whisperer, but he still has to put up with my pillow obsession. Lucky for him, he doesn’t normally make our bed since he leaves before me, so he’s okay with living outside of his pillow comfort zone.

If you’re like my husband, you love a little more than just the one pillow you sleep on. Pillow whisperers have a practical amount of pillows and will most likely use all of them with a purpose. You might enjoy a decorative throw pillow in addition to a couple standard pillows, great for sitting up while reading a book in bed or to add some extra decoration after the bed is made.


3. The pillow enthusiast

I was once this person. I used to know my limits regarding how many pillows I needed. But then I’d go to Target and see their new Opalhouse pillows… or step into Pottery Barn and catch a really good bedding sale. Who could possibly resist them all?

If you’re a pillow enthusiast, you love pillows, but only to a point. You enjoy decking out your bed with fluffy pillows and different textures – and your bed is the statement piece upon walking into your room. You have only the pillows which bring you joy, and not one extra pillow more.


4. The pillow maximalist

This is me, friends. I’m a crazy pillow person, but to be honest, I’m okay with it. Marie Kondo might not be okay with it, but I am!

The Maximalist has no limits regarding how many pillows will decorate their bed. For some of you, you may not even be able to sit or lay on your bed without removing half the pillows first. 😂 You most likely have different throw pillows for each holiday to match all your seasonal decor perfectly. You can’t resist that cute bunny pillow for Easter at Pottery Barn, and you always get out those matching flannel Christmas sheets that go with your red pillows in November. And let’s not even talk about how long it would take to wash your bed!

If you’re a maximalist, it’s okay. I’m here for you, and we’re all in this together! 🙌
