The bed is the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom and it should be “dressed” to fit the decor of the rest of the room.  Besides doesn’t everyone deserve a little pampering and luxury?  I do! 

Buy the highest thread count cotton that you can afford and remember you really only need two sets of sheets, so splurge a little!  Like get one set in a tone on tone stripe and the other set in a coordinating color scheme; another pattern or solid.  I love mixing patterns and there really are no rules to follow, but one thing I like to make sure when selecting a mix is that at least all the patterns are casual or formal to fit the rest of the theme.  You would be surprised how many different looks you can achieve with just two sets of sheets!

You can stretch your dollar even further by buying duvet covers in different patterns and colors to match your decor and swap them up to create several designer looks!  The bed skirt should be a solid color that coordinates with all your colors and patterns.   To finish the look, buy pillow and shams to coordinate all the looks and pull the whole bed together.  When you buy your sheets, duvet covers, shams and pillows make sure you have a few solid colors along with the patterns.  You need a balance when putting the whole thing together!

Okay, now that you have selected all your bedding; it’s Time to Make the Bed!  Layering is key and you can mix the sheet sets anyway you want.  Go for it and have fun!
