The Art of Layering: How to Style Your Bed with Throw Blankets and Pillows
When creating a cozy and inviting bedroom, mastering the art of layering is a game-changer. Beyond mere functionality, it's a way to infuse your style and transform your bed into a centre-piece of comfort and beauty. The first step is understanding the basics of bed styling, recognizing that it involves more than just aesthetics, achieving a perfect balance of comfort and visual appeal. Start by selecting suitable pillows, considering various types such as decorative, Euro, and standard, each serving a unique purpose in the overall look.
Throw blankets are equally important, providing warmth and texture to your bed. We will guide you through the process, helping you create a base with sheets and duvet covers and then layering with pillows of different sizes, shapes, and patterns. Additionally, we will delve into the art of arranging throw blankets for a cozy and stylish finish, all while emphasizing the significance of color coordination and texture contrast.
With these techniques, you'll be confident of elevating your bedroom's aesthetic and comfort with beautifully layered bedding.
Step 1: The Foundation - Sheets and Duvet Covers
Creating a solid foundation for your bed is essential before you start layering with pillows and throw blankets. This begins with your choice of sheets and duvet covers. Here, we recommend our premium Duvet Covers and Comforters to set the stage for a luxurious and comfortable sleep experience.
Our Duvet Covers and Comforters are made from the finest materials, offering a soft and inviting surface to snuggle into. When selecting these base layers, consider the color palette and the overall style you want to achieve. Neutral tones provide a timeless and sophisticated look, while bolder colors can add a touch of personality and vibrancy to your bedroom.
Step 2: Pillows - The Key to Comfort and Style
Pillows are not just for sleeping; they play a vital role in the aesthetics and comfort of your bed. There are several types of pillows to consider:
Decorative Pillows: These are the showstoppers of your bed. They come in various shapes, sizes, and patterns, allowing you to express your personal style. Whether you prefer geometric designs or floral patterns, decorative pillows can be the focal point of your bed.
Euro Pillows: Euro pillows are more oversized and square-shaped, providing excellent back support for sitting up in bed. They also create a plush and luxurious appearance when arranged against your headboard.
Standard Pillows: These are your everyday sleeping pillows. Choose high-quality, comfortable pillows that suit your preferred sleeping position.
Layer your pillows to balance style and functionality to create a harmonious and inviting look. Place your standard pads at the back, followed by Euro pillows, and finish with decorative pillows at the front. This arrangement provides depth and dimension to your bed.
Step 3: Pillow Shams - Elegance and Coherence
To enhance the sophistication of your bed, consider using pillow shams. Pillow shams are like pillowcases but with an extra touch of elegance. They come in various designs and can be coordinated with your duvet cover or comforter. Pillow shams add a layer of luxury to your pillow arrangement, tying the whole look together seamlessly.
Step 4: The Cozy Finish - Throw Blankets
Throw blankets are the final piece of the puzzle for mastering the art of layering. These blankets provide warmth on chilly nights and introduce texture and style to your bed. To create a cosy and stylish finish, follow these tips:
Texture Contrast: Choose throw blankets with varying textures. For example, pair a soft, plush throw with a more textured one. The interplay of textures adds depth and visual interest to your bed.
Color Coordination: Consider the color palette of your bedroom. Opt for throw blankets that complement the existing color scheme. You can choose subtle, matching tones for a cohesive look or a pop of color to make your bed a focal point.
Layering Technique: Fold or drape throw blankets at the foot of your bed or lay them diagonally across the corner. Experiment with different arrangements until you achieve the look that suits your style and comfort.
Seasonal Switch: Rotate your throw blankets with the seasons. Lighter, breathable throws work well for summer, while thicker, cozier options are perfect for winter. This simple switch can keep your bedroom looking fresh and inviting year-round.
