How to Style the Perfect Bed
The daily task of making your bed is usually the last thing on your mind when rushing to get ready in the morning. Now that a lot of us have more time at home (and looking for ANYTHING to do) there's extra time to style your bed to perfection! Here are some tips:
Don't get bored with your bedding, switch it up with the seasons. Use crisp percale sheets in the summer, cozy flannels in the winter, and linen sheets for the spring and fall. Linen keeps you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold, perfect for the in between seasons!
First find uniform elements. Look for a color that is in both patterns or one that is dominant in one pattern, and secondary in the other.
Can I have too many pillows?
It's true, you can have too many pillows! 2 Euro shams, 2 standard pillows, and 1 decorative pillow is the perfect amount. Too many pillows will make your bed look cluttered and uninviting.
Should I steam or iron my bedding?
Neither, both are unnecessary. Take your sheets out of the dryer before they are completely dried, then smooth them out flat. Beds are meant for sleeping, there will be wrinkles!
If you want to update your bedding without changing everything, add a new quilt or throw. Play with patterns and textures, then fold it at the end of your bed for a new look.
Remember, don't take your bedding too serious, have fun with it!
