Though household chores are notoriously tedious, the payoff is usually worth it. And out of all the tasks on that dreaded chore chart, making your bed is probably the most pleasant since it only takes a few seconds. Plus, a freshly made bed creates a more calming, clutter-free environment, which is a bedroom essential. There are also a few other benefits that are purely cosmetic. Think fluffy duvets, crisp sheets, and a collection of well-styled throw pillows for an artfully undone aesthetic that makes the entire room look more put together.

Joyce Downing Pickens of Los Angeles design firm JDP Interiors walks us through her easy but far-reaching styling tips for a photo-ready and sleep-friendly bed.
