There's something about making up the bed each day, definitely something I need to do more often. I usually make the bed when I am expecting company, or on weekends when I am not rushing out the door to make it to work. I had friends over for dinner not too long ago (no, we didn't eat in the bedroom) but I felt like if I made my bed, the rest of the house would suddenly be clean. It didn't quite work that way, but once that first section of the apartment is picked up everything else just seems easier to do. I really liked how the bed came together once I was done, with the light blues and browns, and the mixed patterns - definitely give my room that extra pop.
