The bed that reflects your personality and style. Whether you prefer a subtle or bold sanctuary make your bedding design a little more eye-catching by selecting a pattern as its focal point. To mix patterns like a pro there are definitely some key points to keep in mind: scale, colour, and balance. When selecting your patterns remember to include a mix of scales with small stripes to create drama without making the patterns fight for the spotlight. We suggest starting with basics and then mixing and matching patterns. After selecting your spotlight patterns, ensure that the colours create cohesion by choosing patterns in complimentary colours. Be inventive and blend the colour schemes. Last, layer your basics and patterns to create a harmonious bedroom!

3. Layer in luxury

Mix materials to match the season. Layers don’t only complete the look, but also play an important role in bringing you warmth and comfort. But between all the different thread counts to bedding materials, it can be hard to decide what material will work best. For the cold and chilly winter nights start with layering sateen or percale sheets. Add percale, sateen or flannel duvets and coverlets to provide you extra warmth in the night. Toss a wool or fur throw blanket on the foot of the bed for extra comfort. Fall and Spring is known as the ever-changing temperature when it’s warm one day and chilly the next! Be prepared for this climate by layering you bed to keep you warm and cool.

4. Soft neutrals

Fun and flirty.  When you consider how to decorate your bedroom, it makes sense to arrange your bed to reflect your personal style. Adding a pop of colour is the best way to do so because lets face it, sometimes the neutral approach doesn’t cut it.  One great way to do this is to use decorative pillows. Decorative pillows come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colours, so you can add a pop of colour and touches of contrast and texture to your bed. This makes a big style statement while also creating additional comfort.
