Timeless style choices
A strong pattern can be too bold for a timeless look, so choose a solid quilt cover and introduce the pattern through decorative cushions. Stripes are suitable for bedrooms of all ages because they add visual interest without overwhelming the eyes.
Two large Euro cushions on the headboard form the backdrop. The size is easy to match with the rest of the cushions in front, so you can layer it. Reversible pillowcases are so convenient that you can change the look of your bed linen in no time. Note the luxurious details, such as the piping around the edges.
Placement of cushions
One of the most common questions I get asked is how to style my cushions. For beds, I like to start with Euros as above. Those are the starting points. Then add a sleeping pillow, some square throw pillows, and finally a small rectangular boudoir cushion as a finishing touch to help balance out the square cushions. It is also very practical as a lumbar cushion to support your lower back when reading in bed.
Bedrooms need to be soft and romantic, so adding a few plush items like cashmere or wool throws at the end of the bed is a great way to create an atmosphere that makes you want to crawl into bed after a busy day. . Lighting is also important. I currently have a Himalayan salt lamp and an electric oil diffuser next to my bed. Combined with a good book, bedtime prep time is a dream come true. Apply a silky-soft bamboo eye mask right before bed to ensure a perfect night’s rest.
Choose a color that speaks to you
Use the theory of color psychology to surround yourself with calming and calming colors like blues, greens and greys. If you’re looking for something a little more playful, dusty pink is for you. I chose chic, classic colors for my Bamboo House linen series because they match so many design styles, from modern coastal to Hamptons to bohemian, and they don’t get old quickly. , is a wise investment.
