A Well-Dressed Bed

Protip from August 2021

Styling and layering your bed has a lot to do with your own personal preferences, and with a few easy steps, you can have that perfect layered look everyone loves. Start with the sheets: Revival Living Interiors recommends using white sheets, as this allows you more freedom in using other patterns and textures. The next step is a quilt. Tuck it in or let it hang down on the sides – then fold it back to make room for your pillows. Fold the top sheet back for a tailored look! Change it up throughout the seasons by using your quilt, folded at the foot of your bed, in place of a heavier comforter during the warmer months. Next is a comforter or duvet cover: use this layer to cover the bottom half of your bed or fold at the bottom. Folding it accordion style makes it easy to pull up on those chilly nights! Do not forget a throw blanket as a finishing touch! Create an effortless look by arranging it casually at the foot of your bed. Pillows are important too! You will always have your sleeping pillows, but no well-dressed bed is complete without shams and a decorative pillow. Match your shams to your quilt, comforter, or duvet, and add at least one decorative pillow, like a lumbar displayed at the front. Make your bed, and make your day!
