Universal Ways To Dress Your Bed
Before you start investing in your bedsheets, here are the little changes you can make that will immediately elevate your bed. These are the simple solutions that professional interior designers live by and we want to share their secrets with you.
Reversible duvet covers - Nice and easy, this trick means that with one flip of your quilt you can change the look of your bed day-by-day. Choose a mix of plain and patterned, or two different patterns on both sides.
Layering - The go-to technique for any professional interior design expert. The more layers, the more stylish a bed can look. For this style, aim for chunky knitted accessories to work in natural textures that are chic and cosy. To add layers to your bed, fold your sheets back on themselves to show off patterns and colours, drape throws and blankets over the bottom third of your bed, or add large cushions on top of your sleeping pillows that can be removed at night.

Sticking to a theme - Unless you’re more of a mishmash type, you should pick a theme and stick with it throughout your room. This could be anything from Minimalux to monochrome to springtime pastels or florals, your style is important and should be reflected in your bedclothes.
Colour palettes - Similar to a theme, if you have a consistent colour scheme in your room, it’s important to stick to that when it comes to choosing bedclothes. You could even build the colour of your room around a bold patterned duvet cover. All you need to do is pick out the key colours of your favourite bedding and add accent accessories around your room in the same shade.
