5 ways to style your bed and turn your bedroom from boring to a beautiful one
What’s the best way to dress and style a bed? We’re always in a rush in the mornings so styling our beds to perfection isn’t our biggest priority, but it would certainly make our lives easier (and our bed-making attempts more successful), if we knew the most popular bed dressing hacks, including how to style throws, cushions and other bed accessories.
Take note on how to take your bed from boring to beautiful:
1. Reversible duvet covers
A current trend in bedding is reversible duvet covers and mixing prints. ‘This not only provides two options for the main design on show – you can change the look daily – but it adds a fantastic additional feature to a bed when the top of the duvet cover is turned down,’ says Jackie McLoughlin from British bedding brand Appletree.
Throws are still a great styling device for beds, but ensure it’s not too neatly folded along the bottom of the bed. Throws should now look more informal, casually draped over the corner of the bed.
3. A bedspread
Adding a bedspread can not only inject a strong colour element into the focal point of the room (the bed) but it’s also a great instant update for autumn/winter bedrooms.
Cushions are still an essential for a super stylish bed. But how many? Three is a magic number in styling, or certainly an odd number, and maybe stick to under six in total in a Super King or King and three for a Single. Mix cushions in different shapes, colours, designs and textures for a current look, and display in a non-uniform arrangement. Cushions are also a great way to juxtaposition design elements or colours. Invest in cushion covers that you can change seasonally to avoid having to spend too much.
5. Pillow talk
The most common question asked with regards to styling a bed is whether pillows should be above the duvet or tucked underneath. Jackie says: ‘We’re definitely the former here at Appletree.’
