I'd never given much thought to how beds are made in other parts of the world. Call me narrow minded, but hospital corners rule in my house. Here is a tutorial that shows, layer by layer, how some beds are made in Sweden.
This tutorial is brought to us by Chez Larsson. You can see the complete post with more photos and descriptions here. I really like the clean lined aesthetic of the floor length bed skirt that goes over the box spring. I was surprised to learn that the folks of Sweden are sleeping on merely a thin overlay mattress atop a box spring. Not super plush, but probably very good for their backs! Enjoy learning more about what makes up en svensk säng, a Swedish bed.
