Dressing the Bed

I've been busy designing a project that installs at the end of the month (a model home) and am working on bedding at this very moment. Finding myself hitting a "creativity" roadblock, I decided jump online to hopefully spark some fresh ideas. After analyzing bedroom after bedroom, I've come to the conclusion that pretty much anything goes when it comes to bedding...as long as the fabrics somehow coordinate, you can pull almost anything off! Headboards definitely add something special to the overall look of a bed, but if that isn't an option, wallpaper or accent paint are just as great to really make everything pop. I love very minimal bedding but also have a weakness for lots of pillows and texture! What do you prefer when it comes dressing the bed?

 Pattern play - a great mix against a crisp white headboard

Lots of pillows and layered textures

An eclectic mix of pattern and color 

Bold graphic prints accented with crisp white and pops of coral

Simple and elegant with an eclectic mix of floral and geometric prints / love the headboard!

The printed headboard allows for simple bedding 

Fresh and bright bedding with pops of black and white damask 

The border on the white duvet cover and shams is subtle but ties everything together / simple pillows

Another graphic headboard that allows for the rest of the bedding to be simple 

Great colors, right?! Love the cozy green throw -it's adds an extra punch of color and texture


  1. Personally I like lots of pillows, colours and textures when it comes to dressing a bed - the more welcoming and cozy the better!

  2. For me, I like a more minimal look just the pillows and shams similar to the simple but elegant picture.

  3. Some lovely pictures! I adore lots of pillows, cushions and a throw all in the same colours but different textures. I love white the best!

  4. Love the different patterns and colors that pillows can add! I'm in love with the first photo.
