How to Dress Your Bed Like an Interior Stylist

10th July 2024

Dressing your bed like an interior stylist involves a combination of layering, texture, color coordination, and attention to detail. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you achieve that luxurious, professionally styled look:

1. Start with Quality Basics
Mattress Topper: Begin with a good mattress topper for added comfort and a plush feel.
High-Quality Sheets: Invest in high-thread-count sheets (300+ thread count) for a soft and inviting base. Opt for neutral colors or soft pastels for versatility.
2. Layer the Sheets and Blankets
Fitted Sheet: Place a fitted sheet snugly over the mattress.
Flat Sheet: Add a flat sheet, making sure the edges are neatly tucked in with hospital corners for a clean look.
Blanket or Quilt: Depending on the season, add a lightweight blanket or quilt over the flat sheet.
3. Add a Duvet or Comforter
Duvet Insert and Cover: Choose a fluffy duvet insert and cover it with a duvet cover. Opt for a cover with patterns or textures that complement your room’s decor.
Folding the Duvet: Fold the duvet in thirds at the foot of the bed for a hotel-like look, or pull it up for a cozier feel.
4. Pillows and Cushions
Sleeping Pillows: Place two or four sleeping pillows upright against the headboard.
Euro Shams: Add two or three Euro pillows (large square pillows) in front of the sleeping pillows.
Decorative Pillows: Arrange a mix of decorative pillows in various sizes and textures. Use an odd number for a more natural look (e.g., three or five).
Lumbar Pillow: Finish with a lumbar pillow in the center for added dimension.
5. Throw Blankets
Placement: Drape a throw blanket casually across the foot of the bed or fold it neatly for a more tailored appearance.
Texture and Color: Choose a throw that adds a pop of color or texture to your bed.
6. Attention to Detail
Iron or Steam: Ensure all bedding is wrinkle-free by ironing or steaming them.
Symmetry: Maintain symmetry with pillow placement but don’t be afraid to add a touch of asymmetry with throws or decorative pillows.
Consistent Theme: Keep a consistent color palette and theme that matches your room’s overall decor.
7. Final Touches
Headboard: A stylish headboard can add a focal point and elevate the look.
Bedside Table Decor: Complement your bed with well-styled bedside tables featuring lamps, books, or small plants.
Example Setup
Base Layer: High-thread-count white fitted and flat sheets.
Middle Layer: A light grey quilt.
Top Layer: A white duvet with a subtle pattern, folded at the foot.
Pillows: Four white sleeping pillows, two grey Euro shams, and three decorative pillows (two small square and one lumbar pillow).
Throw Blanket: A chunky knit throw in a contrasting color draped at the end.
By following these steps, you can create a beautifully styled bed that looks both inviting and professionally arranged.
