Four pillowcases that will draw attention away from all of the crumbs

By  | 

It’s no secret that eating in bed is a risky game. You know it’ll make a mess, and you know you’ll probably take a crumb to the eye when you throw back the duvet for bed later on, but you power on through regardless, leaving a trail of suspect bits in your wake. You’re basically Hansel and Gretel, if Hansel and Gretel had Netflix and a Tupperware container full of leftovers.

And let’s be real, you’re not going to change your crumby ways, so here are four pillowcases that will help to bury the evidence like you buried those snacks in your face earlier.

1) THE FLORAL PATTERN

A bedlinen staple, the floral pattern is a great eye-catching number that’s certain to pull focus. Pair with bold colours for a nice reminder of what lies outside – a place where you haven’t been for a good while.

2) A NOVELTY CHILDREN’S CHARACTER

PEXELS / DIGITAL BUGGU

Nothing throws a curveball in the bedroom more than making eye contact with the enthusiastic face of a children’s fictional character. What’s more, it’s a two-pronged attention stealer, because you most definitely don’t know who any of them are. What do you mean Teletubbies isn’t on anymore?

3) GEOMETRIC SHAPES

PEXELS / PIXABAY

You know what doesn’t leave food flecks and an arse imprint everywhere? Hexagons. Pack the head of your bed with them to create some nice visual chaos to lure the eye in. The world is your oyster, or octagon.   

4) THE PILLOW PROTECTOR

PEXELS / JAYMANTRI

For a stripped back look, try using a pillow protector sans a pillowcase to really make a statement. It provides basic pillow coverage without making your squishy friend go completely naked, and will definitely grab attention with it’s strange off-white aura. The more ominous stains the better.
