5 WAYS TO DRESS A BED
There are many ways to dress a bed to create a range of looks, from formal to relaxed. It is worth spending a bit of time getting the look you want just right, since your bed is the main focal point of the bedroom and the area you want to look most inviting when you walk into the room.
MIX AND MATCH PATTERNS
Cover most of a white comforter with a striped bedspread or quilt, arranged so that the stripes are vertical. Add throw pillows that use matching colors and tones, but in a different pattern.
Arrange a folded plaid blanket across the end of the bed. Add a single decorative pillow with a folk art design in front of the pillows.
Not only is a floor-length bedspread a good way to conceal an unattractive box spring and frame, it also creates a feeling of opulence.
Place a folded satin or velvet bedspread at the end of the bed. Team it with two matching throw pillows and add a patterned bolster pillow.
Lay a wool blanket diagonally across the bed, then add a small faux fur blanket. Finish off the look with textured and furry throw pillows.
