Five Steps to Styling a Magazine Worthy Bed

Five Steps to Styling a Magazine Worthy Bed

While we may purchase bedding in the hopes that it will look like what we see in catalogs, our efforts may fall short once we get it home. To style a magazine worthy bed, following these five steps using budget-friendly and high quality linens and accents from HomeGoods.

1. Begin with a soft layer of high-quality cotton sheets. I prefer 200-400 thread count sheets for a comfortable night’s sleep. HomeGoods has a wide variety of 4-piece sheet sets, in varying sizes, from twin XL to king, available in classic solids and festive prints. If sheets are printed, make sure that the print side is down, facing the mattress, so the print is displayed when it is folded back.

2. Add a neutral, textured comforter as your second layer. You can typically find tufted, solid bedding sets for under $60 at HomeGoods. A neutral base allows you to change up accent pillows and throws as the seasons or trends change.

3. Create an additional layer of support and style by adding Euro pillows as your third layer. Unlike rectangular, standard shams, square Euro pillows add height and fullness to a bed while also serving as a headboard alternative for those styling on a budget. HomeGoods typically sells Euro shams in a pack of two for $29.99 - $39.99 depending on the color or material. For a full or queen bed, use two pillows; for a king bed, add three pillows and tuck your sleeping pillows behind them.

4. Fold a quilt, duvet or comforter over the end of the bed for a fourth layer of linen love. To add a pop of color, brighten the end of the bed with your favorite seasonal quilt and coordinate with matching accents.

5. Polish off your sweet slumber space by styling accent pillows of various sizes and colors. Layer on the shams and then arrange two larger accent pillows that match the quilt at the bottom of the bed. Top with a pillow that contrasts in shape or color, like this $20 handwoven, Bohemian option from HomeGoods, and then toss a tasseled, colorful or patterned throw on the corner of the bed for elevated appeal.
