We all in our life times have owned a bed in a bag ensemble. While that matching coverlet and pillow shams are super cute, there are thousands of others out there with the same exact bed set as you!
This is something as designers, we just cannot stand for. We believe in making every space a unique and perfect reflection of our client’s personality. This even includes their bedding!
Creating custom bedding can sound intimidating, but with some expert advice we can put you on the right track to making your bed set completely you!
The best ways to create a custom look for your bedding is to start with some neutrals! Opt for a more neutral coverlet. This will give you a ton more options when it comes to pillow colors and patterns, and will also allow you to keep your coverlet looking fresh through all the changing design trends.
A neutral base to you bed gives you the freedom to have go wild with your accent pillows! Mixing color and patterns in your pillows create a unique and fun room that is totally personalized, and makes it easy to switch out your pillows for a new look in the future!
However remember there is such a thing as too many pillows. A good rule of thumb is to have three layers of pillows. Your shams in the back, a row of two or three accent pillows, with smaller accent pillows in front.
So next time you need some new bedding, remember bed in a bag’s are a thing of the past! Try going for a custom and individual look that is totally you!
