I recently did two E-design plans for bedding. I thought I would share my guide on the perfect bedding. Too often I go into clients homes or get pictures where the pillows are just too small and they used too many. Another thing I see is flat pillows. Fill them with down or get a full fiber blend, a size larger than the actual pillows.
Here are some tips on making the perfect bed.
This is my bed right now, it changes often. But the key is the layers and the 26″ euro shams.
- THESE two euro shams are in the back
- THESE sheets came with two standard shams that are layered in front of
- the Euros that we sleep with.
- THIS or THIS linen gray euro in the front
- HERE and HERE for the two accent pillows in front
- HERE and HERE are similar white quilt I layered over my white sheets. At the end I folded a white linen duvet that is filled with a down fill, you can find HERE
These white duvets are really so timeless, you can find one HERE
(you can see more of my bedroom HERE)
This is another way to layer pillows, and keep it pretty simple. The 26″ euro sham is filled with a down fill, makes it full with not a lot of pillows.
I put the pillows we sleep with under the back euro to add height (notice the marble euro is taller than the gray, but they are both the same size).
This is another great example of large pillows and bedding layered with sheets and folded duvet at the bottom. This would not look as amazing if the duvet was not folded down and the pillows were stacked on top of it.
I recently switched out this bedding for a client that I did her bedroom almost 8 years ago. It needed to be lightened up.
I did cream sheets and folded down the top sheet over THIS king puckered quilt that is folded down as well. This was her summer bedding, in the winter she could add a king duvet stuffed with a down fill folded at the end of the bed.
Pillows starting in the back-
Two king shams (that they actually sleep with) came with the sheets
THESE three Euro shams stuffed with down
THESE two decorative 23″ pillows
THIS kidney Pillow
Throw at the end of the bed, similar one HERE
I did this bedroom about 8 years ago. But you can see sticking with cream, neutral bedding is timeless.
This bed looks extremely cozy and lived in. They folded down the sheets and again used euro shams, nothing smaller than 23″ on that bed.
This is my daughters bedding in our Utah Home.
You can see that none of this is a set, it is eclectic pieces that I mixed together. I didn’t fold down the quilt on this bed, it was too hard to do against the wall. But I still created full layers with a duvet folded at the end.
I tried to simplify my girls beds, so they could easily make them and keep them light for the summer. I will have to add down fills pretty soon, that I layer under the white quilt.
I found their sheets and the white quilt HERE from Target
I stacked the pillow that they sleep with under the white ruffle sham. I have used those all over my different beds, they are a staple you can find some HERE.
This bedding is pretty similar in the fact that they have a sham in the back with one euro and one accent pillow to add a pop of color. Again the quilt is folded down and the pillows are on top of the sheets, NOT the duvet.
Try making your bed a little different tomorrow. Fold down your quilt or duvet to add layers. Expose your sheets for something different.
Love all of it!! The tips are so helpful too!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

I love the way you always give all the details for shopping. Before you posted this I was looking on Etsy this morning and found those printed pillows. I'm glad you I gave the info. on the duvet because I don't think I would have found that.Do you know where I could find a white quilt like the one you used? I think your decorating is amazing.,

I love this post! I'd love to see ideas on boy bedding. I'm getting ready to put my boys (age 5 & 3) in the same room and I've been racking my brain on figuring out how to do it … Especially with the bed layers and keeping it masculine. ?

The absolute best linen bedding is at http://www.linoto.com …all made in the USA and Linoto is currently a finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made awards. (Sorry for the plug, Jason is a sweet friend of mine and his bedding is the best!) I have one of his white linen duvets….love love love!
Just found your blog; it's really great! My next binge blog read for sure!

I love the puckered quilt!
No offense, but why do so many people karate chop their pillows?
