Okay, this is a sensitive topic. We know that there are some that may disagree with our perspective, but here we go.
The below bed is a little over the top. In addition to this bedding likely being 100% polyester, it is just too much.
Some may say this is a romantic bed.
What is more elegant than an all-white bed?
So here is our bullet point list for decorating your bed.
Keep the bed uncluttered.
The largest piece on the bed is your duvet cover or coverlet. When decorating we recommend selecting this piece first and select accents that work with it.
We occasionally see individuals fall in love with a decorative pillow and then attempt to decorate the bed around the pillow.
Decorating a bed can be accomplished in this order, but it is much more difficult than selecting the top of the bed first and finding accents that work with it.
If you want color, great, bring it in with neutrals.
A throw is a nice way to introduce some color and a it can be very functional as well.
Don’t over make the bed with decorative pillows, you need to remove them each night and storage might be a problem.
Euro shams are a nice touch, they look great, add a nice layered and height to the bed. Use either 2 or 3 on a Queen or Full size bed. For a King bed use 3 or 4.
When putting your bed together don’t forget to inspect the condition of your pillow. Pillows over time do wear out and become flat and lifeless, people often are reluctant to throw them away but once they are flat and lifeless they detract from the look of the bed.
We hope this gives you a starting place.
