1. What We Learned From Goldilocks and the Three Bears
We all know and love the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It’s where, as children, we learned about…well, what exactly is the moral of the story? Now that we’re thinking about it, we can’t help but notice that nothing really happens to our fair-haired, porridge-eating, chair-sitting, bed-sleeping anti-hero, who takes whatever she pleases and runs off scot-free.
Then again, the last thing we want is to make a mountain out of a molehill. So, instead of blaming this lighthearted children’s tale for everything it’s not, let’s take a look at everything it got right.
- The Bears’ Interior Design Is On Point.
We know this because of its use of one of the most revered principles in design: the ‘Rule of Three.’ Namely, the three chairs and the three beds – but we’ll also give a shout-out to the three bowls lined up in a tidy little decorative row on the dining table. (The Rule of Three, by the way, is exactly what it sounds like. Decorative objects in a home, for the most part, should be grouped in threes, for satisfyingly balanced aesthetic.)
- One Should Never Settle for Just an ‘Okay’ Sleep.
Goldilocks’ greed may be controversial – but when it comes to her choosing a bed that delivers a good night’s sleep, we’re never one to shake a finger. (Visit a Revive Center to play ‘Goldilocks’ yourself and find your ‘just right’ mattress.)
- The Bears’ Cottage-Style Home Is the Epitome of ‘Cozy.’
The actual details of the bears’ home may be a little fuzzy, but what we do know is that it was built in the middle of a ‘woodsy retreat,’ probably from scratch, and with all-genuine wood furniture and a calming neutral decor scheme. It’s all the hygge feels, all in one cozy, cottage-y, irresistibly chic place.

That was so delightfully chic,
Even the spiders wanted to join in on the fun.
