White people problems - pillow placement

Today, Apartment Therapy wants to know if you arrange your bed pillows horizontally or vertically.

Meaning this...

...or this.

I was so undone by this decorating quandary that I had to take a Xanax and lie down. On the couch.

Answering would imply that I "arrange" my pillows at all.

That site is so deep. I don't even understand how they manage to pull in traffic with such a hot bed of complex and compelling issues.

Kate said...

Good grief.
I have nothing insightful to say, other than I wish that were the only conundrum to darken my day.

I'm so dumb. I wasn't even sure what they meant, so I had to look. 20 comments. The terms vertical and horizontal don't make sense in this context. They just mean flat or perpendicular, don't they? Er...nevermind. This is so inane.

AT is grasping for content yet again.

What's their take on the issue of throw pillows? Fluff or karate chop?

I'm dddddddyyyyyyyiiiiiiinnnnggggg to know.

Moot point at my house. Arrange them however you like, they end up flat with a schnauzer curled up sleeping dead center.

Ooooh...on the guest bed: vertically, sorta. On our bed...it's willy-nilly.

nkp said...

That is such stupid bullshit. Sorry, someone had to say it. How was your nap? Feeling refreshed?

Dumbwit Tellher said...

I agree with Kate, wish that my life was as simple as that. Pass the Xanax please Raina x

animal print gal said...

I do it both ways, it depends on the mood...

Karena said...

Too funny, okay vertically. You poor dear!

Teri said...

could you please pass the xanax and rum?

Would both be the wrong answer?

Why isn't on the floor a choice?

Uuuuugggghhhh.....especially annoying today.

Raina Cox said...

NKP - Feeling very refreshed, thank you.

I curled up with Dumbwit and Teri, discussed the issue, and we're all feeling better about things. ;)

What a pile of old bollocks!
I thought there were far more urgent questions to be answered like the best way to arrange vases or whether to have a toilet roll holder on the wall or the floor!???
Those are just two of the many nagging questions that buzz around inside my head on a daily basis...I need to lie down in a darkened room now too!

What David said, only with a snoring Weimaraner.

Jess said...

I don't know what everyone else is talking about, I think this is some hard hitting journalism. Every morning I wake up and go back and forth debating the decision.

So, I just opt out by never making my bed unless I'm trying to look clean to someone visiting.

Designers' Brew said...

Agree with Brick House. Another urgent matter they should consider: throw blankets. Arranged in rigid geometry (parallel to foot of bed or arm of couch), or laid at an angle? Or, tossed at random with devil-may-care insouciance?

WPP just may be my favorite regular column. Thank you, AT for the virtual treasure trove of content you supply.

For the record, more questions on the pillow issue: what about context of the room? how many pillows are too many pillows? Oh, wasn't there some earthquake in Haiti or something? Never mind, back to the pillow conundrum.

Raina Cox said...

Priscilla - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

hello gorgeous said...

Yes, I lurve WPP, too.

I actually debate this question to myself every morning.

I'm white.
