Make the Perfect Bed

Your bedroom is a reflection of your personal style and a comfort-first haven. By complementing equal parts of design and function, you can transform the space in which you spend a third of your life into your favorite sanctuary — with your bed as the focal point.

Step 1: Start from the inside out
Remember that the primary purpose of your bedroom is to help you sleep well. Sheets are no place to skimp. You’ll never be disappointed to slip between two soft sheets after a hard day out in the world.

Step 2: Cover your bed
A duvet cover or comforter begins the transition from function to style. Duvet covers are great because they can bring in a pop of design or color that can easily be changed.

Step 3: Accessorize your bed
Pillows are a great way to add style. We suggest a combination of Euro and regular shams to match your comforter or duvet cover with an accent pillow or two that reflect your style. If you have a pillow that your grandmother needlepointed for you, now is the time to break it out.

Step 4: Make it cozy
A throw blanket is a great way to bring in a pop of accent color and make your bed look inviting.

Step 5: Finishing touches
Never underestimate the visual difference that a bed skirt or box spring cover can make. If you only have a headboard, go with a bed skirt. If you have a full-frame bed or a footboard, then a box spring cover will tighten up the look.
