Day 20 – 11th June – Quarantine Room Design Notes – Bed

Checking out the mattress, a Slumberland.

Changing the sheets is something I have to do myself in this hotel room πŸ˜‚, which felt so weird. But the idea of quarantine is isolation, and being isolated from others means the housekeeping staff can’t enter the room.

Requesting for fresh sheets is done via the WhatsApp messaging app. I make the request once a week which I think is reasonable. That’s how often I change my bedsheets at home, anyway.

As instructed, I pack the used sheets into a laundry bag and seal it (right).

Middle: used towels I wanted changed as well.

Left: used floor mat. I don’t mix towels and floor mats in the same bag, because I’m civilized πŸ˜„
As instructed, I leave the bags of used stuff out the door to be collected by housekeeping.
Bringing in the clean fresh sheets and towels that the laundry fairy had left outside my door. Unlike me, they put the towels and the floor mat in the same bag *gasp!* πŸ˜‚ Just kidding it’s not a big deal.
So nice to have clean fresh sheets 😍

By the way, the mattress is HEAVY, even heavier than it looks. πŸ‘πŸ½RespectπŸ‘πŸ½to all the housekeeping ladies (and men) for the back-breaking jobπŸ’ͺ🏽. And I imagine they have to move fast too, to efficiently cover a certain number of rooms and bathrooms. AND they have to maintain standards even as they work fast. My work would probably earn me a big fail even though I was so slow πŸ˜‚.

Day 13 – 4th June – Quarantine Room Design Notes – Headboard

The headboard has a mock sewn-in diamond tufting look which nicely matches the diamond pattern of the drapes.

Drapes
The material: vinyl with a linen print.

I rather like the sewn-in tufting (otherwise known as blind tufting) look of the headboard, which does not show buttons or other objects holding the indentation in place. It’s a more modern take on the luxe look, plus I’d worry buttons would get ripped or popped out by naughty, itchy fingers 🀭 children’s and adults’ alike. πŸ˜‚
