Did you know… the average American spends roughly a third of their life sleeping, so it might as well be done in style. Quality sheets and designer bedding ensembles not only make our beds more comfortable, they also make them a focal feature of any bedroom. Whether your style is classic and simple, bold and beautiful, or fun and whimsical, the best in bed linens can turn a boring bedroom into a bedazzling boudoir.
Here are some tips for getting that show room look for your bedroom
Layer the bed with a variety of textures and patterns in the same color family. A damask coverlet, a pillow in a faux fur or cashmere, and a mohair throw casually tossed on the end all add the look of luxury. Texture comes from quilted pillow covers, “vermicelli”-stitched coverlets, and matelasse spreads used in place of blankets.
Using a dust ruffle? Stylists will often use two for an extra-puffy look. If you top a long bed skirt with a shorter one, the look is ruffled and feminine.
Instead of just two standard pillows, use two 26-inch-square pillows with Euro shams, plus two or three standard pillows, plus a boudoir pillow or a neckroll.
You can even toss a queen- or king-sized pillow into the mix.
Use coordinating fabrics, and it won’t look haphazard.
Make sure to start with a thick mattress and box spring. If your fitted sheet is big enough to accommodate it, add a thick mattress pad or down pillow top to your mattress.
Give your duvet an especially fluffy look by using a duvet in the next-largest size.
Evaluate your bed from the perspective of touch. What adds softness? What invites relaxation? Controlling the color palette lends serenity, while a blend of textures adds interest and appeals to the senses.
