Start with a foundation – We spend 1/3 of our lives in our beds – make sure to get a great mattress (I know a good place for one of those) frame, and good sheets – definitely worth the investment in your long-term health
We say in terms of fashioning a bed, go with a solid neutral color as your base. White or neutral sheets – add in patterns and prints and colors later in the layering.
Layer up next – First over the sheets, a light coverlet, then a quilts and then a duvet to create an inviting bed. You can add varying textures and prints/patterns here if you like.
PILLOWS – Match your shams to your duvet and put those behind your day to day pillows. There is no limit or perfect number to accent pillows from here – It all comes down to preference. I have 3 on my bed. 2 that match in size and one small one to go in the very front but all three are different patterns/textures with matching color schemes.
