The second biggest decorating mistake in most people's home according to HGTV is having too many pillows on your bed. Can you have too many? LOL....I just have my pillows with shams and pillows with pillow cases on them but no decorative ones. How many pillows do you have on your bed?

well with the pillows it depends where they are if they are in the bedroom I dont care who has how many but on couch there should be limit. I hate when I go visit someone and the whole couch is covered with them and I am siting on 1/4 of my behind trying not to fall of the couch.

Totally agree. I have three small ones on the couch..but they are small. I don't mind if people move them. They usually adjust them to lean on them.....LOL

I love the way pillows look to decorate. I have 4 pillows on my bed, 2 of them are in really pretty microsuede shams. I think pillows make a bed look comfortable. I also like extra pillows on couches, it gives me something to hold and hug when I'm sitting. It makes me feel warm and secure.

I just have 4 regular pillows on my bed. I've never understood having loads of decorative pillows that you have to take off every night and then fix back up in the morning...I don't have time for that :)

Me either. I like to make the bed before I go to work so I don't need to waste time with a bunch of pillows!

i usually have 2 to 3 pillows in my bed. one or two for my head and one to be hugged or just beside me so i can put my arms or legs above it. ^__^;; but sometimes i settle with only one, especially when im sleeping in another house. ^__^

Yes..it's hard to downsize when you go visit someone else's house. I try to keep plenty for my guests!

That's a silly mistake to make. Why? I wonder? I mean, isn't decorating a personal thing anyway? LOL! We have 5 pillows. No shams, just all in pillow cases. 3 of them are thin enough, though, they could all fit into one pillow case. They are all used, and not decorative. :) Just out of curiousity, what is the biggest mistake??

We don't have decorative pillows on the bed. But, we do sleep with quite a few. Hubby has two and I have two for my head, one behind my back, two propping me up on the other side, and one between my knees to cushion my arthritis. Oh my gosh...we have a lot of pillows! LOL
