Bedding NOT in a Box – Creating a Layered Bed
Bedrooms pose a bit of a challenge — they have to be relaxing and refreshing yet everything needs to be functional. The biggest element in a bedroom is the bed, of course! Using great bedding is an important step in starting the feel for your whole space. Here are some quick & easy ideas for creating a beautiful & layered bed.
Mix & Match
This bedroom has a fun mix of both pattern & color. The subtle pattern of the grey duvet is broken up by a fun pattern & color on the pillowcases. The green of the patterned shams is repeated in the headboard, clock & artwork moving the accent color around the room.
Clean & Tailored
One can never go wrong with a white bed! This one is kept interesting by the matelasse on the quilt. The bed is upholstered in a beautiful linen and the skirt is made of the same material. The neutral colors throughout this space create a relaxing atmosphere.
Color + Function
This girls bedroom definitely has color to spare! The bookcase between the beds, along with the functional sconces turned reading lights, add much needed storage & function. The colors are pulled from the bedding throughout the room.
This neutral bedroom is a relaxing space to unwind at the end of the day. The bedding is tone-on-tone but uses texture & subtle pattern to move your eye. Folding down the duvet makes you want to jump in and relax!
Create a cocoon by keeping everything neutral. The dark walls here and white bedding create a relaxing space that will visually recede. Note the fluffy pillows and use of different shades & textures of white.
