Working from home means I need to keep my environment as inspiring and tidy as possible. The state of my surroundings really affects my productivity so the first thing I do every morning is make my bed. The task has become such an essential part of my morning routine that it’s almost like brushing my teeth. And over the course of time I’ve found that the more you like your bedding, the more excited you are to make your bed all pretty for the day.
Are you ready switch things up with your bedding? I’m going to show you 3 different ways to style your bed. And starting with a great duvet really makes a difference. It’s like having a great rug: it grounds your space and ties everything together.
A solid duvet cover (whites are my favorite!) is the most versatile. I’ve been loving my Crane & Canopy duvet cover since the day I got it, especially the bold black border which I think adds a bit of sophistication. With a solid color duvet, you can update your bed’s whole look with pillow covers or a throw. Add floral pillows to keep things light in spring and incorporate cozy fabrics in winter.
3 Ways to Style Your Bed
Which look is your favorite?
1. Neutral with texture
Return your bedroom to its original function: that of a a restful sleep. Keep bedding and pillow colors neutral, in white, grey or beige. Here, I played with cushion to create a perfectly symmetrical look, and added an extra touch of cozy with a faux-fur throw. This look is ideal for cooler months and will work with pretty much any bedroom decor.
2. Pop of color
Don’t have a lot of time to spend on making your bed each morning? We still encourage you to do it – a beautiful bed is so much nicer to come home to! Keep it simple by adding a single decorative pillow in a bright, bold color, and it will put a smile on your face each time.
3. Gold Accents
Added: For a luxurious look and feel, you can’t go wrong with gold accents! In addition to white bedding, beautify your bed with subtly printed pillows, arranged in a symmetrical fashion. Keep it hygge by adding a faux fur throw, just so.
