The Duchess's Bedroom, Chatsworth. Minus the four poster, I love this bedroom. Mom was interesting in some of her habits--good housekeeper, but she was not always a habitual bedmaker. I always make my bed, but only when I get home from work. It's usually the first thing I do...and am a bit fanatic about changing sheets every three days or two in the summer. I always thought this was a bit slacker of me, then read that my other Duchess (Windsor) only allowed the bed made before nighttime.
