Your Ultimate Guide to a Dreamy Bedroom

Hello, Dream Designers! 

Ever walked into a bedroom and thought, “Wow, I could just dive into that bed and never leave”? There’s an art to making a bed look that inviting, and guess what? It’s easier than you think! Today, we’re diving deep into the world of bed styling – from the perfect number of pillows to the secret sauce of sheets and shams. Ready to transform your bedroom into a sanctuary? Let’s get styling! 

The Perfect Pillow Protocol 

First things first, let’s talk pillows. How many do you need? Well, it’s not just about the number but the arrangement. For a queen bed, start with two to four standard pillows for sleeping, then layer in two to four decorative pillows for that plush look. Got a king-sized bed? You might go up to three sleeping pillows and complement with two to five decorative ones, depending on their size and your style preference.  

The golden rule? It should look abundant but not overcrowded. Play around with sizes and textures. Think of your pillows as the outfit of your bed – you want them to coordinate, not necessarily match perfectly. 

Sheets and Shams: The Inside Scoop 

Moving on to sheets and shams – these are the unsung heroes of bed styling. Opt for sheets that feel luxurious to the touch. Whether you’re a crisp cotton fan or a silky sateen lover, go for the best quality you can afford. And here’s a little insider tip: invest in at least two great sets, so you’ve always got a fresh change on hand. 

As for shams, they’re like the cherry on top. Use them to tie your bed’s look together, matching or complementing your duvet cover or comforter. And don’t be shy about mixing patterns and colors. If your bedding is solid, a patterned sham can add a pop of visual interest, and vice versa. 

Layering Like a Pro 

Now, let’s layer up! Start with a fitted sheet, add your top sheet (tuck it in for a neat look), then your duvet or comforter. Fold the top sheet and duvet down about a quarter of the way down the bed to showcase your sheets. Then, add a lightweight throw at the foot of the bed for texture and warmth. 

Texture is your friend here. A chunky knit throw or a sleek, quilted blanket adds dimension and invites you to touch – making your bed look even more appealing. 

Final Touches for a Picture-Perfect Bed 

Your bed is almost Instagram-ready! Final touches like a soft, textured rug beside your bed, a bench or a set of ottomans at the foot, and even ambient lighting can elevate your bedroom’s overall feel. Remember, your bedroom is your retreat – make it personal.
