Sometimes I come across product that's just so smart, it's almost dumb. I think, "Why hasn't mankind thought of this before?" That is definitely the case with detachable bedskirts. I was first turned on to them by New Orleans artist Amanda Stone Talley, whose chevron John Robshaw bedskirt I fell hard for in her house tour. They're actually three separate panels that you simply tuck around your bed, so they're easy to take off and wash without lifting the mattress. Even flipping my mattress just twice a year is such a pain, I really dread doing it. But seeing as your bedskirt comes in contact with the floor and your feet, day in and day out, it's one bed linen that gets dirty fast. As it turns out, Robshaw isn't the only one who sells them. Do a quick Google of "detachable bedskirt" and you'll pull up plenty of options. Unfortunately, such chic patterns are rare. But, the Company Store's Detachable Box Pleat Bedksirt ($59 and up), which attaches with velcro, could easily be perked up with ribbon trim to add a bit of color.
