DO SELECT THE PERFECT SHEETING
If you sleep warm at night, Linen is a natural fabric that will keep you cool in the summer and only get softer with washing. Live in chilly weather? A tencel fabric like Madera is not only sustainable and unbelievably soft, but it is also cozy and will ward off the chill. If you crave a crisp hotel sheet, go for cotton like our Trecento! And don't let the thread counts trick you into spending too much, any more than 600 TC and the fibers may be so thin that the material won't last long.
DON'T SKIMP ON THE SKIRT
Bella Notte bed skirts come in panels making it easy to remove one by one and toss in the laundry as necessary. And the 22" gathered skirt will make your bed look full and complete.
DO MIX TEXTURES
DON'T BE SO STIFF
**Side note, not every piece on your bed needs to be at a stiff right angle! If the throw blanket is a bit too small, give it an easy toss instead of folding to make it look larger. And it adds some texture making your bed perfectly imperfect!
DO SOFTEN THE EDGES
The best solution is a quality mattress, but even a foam topper on your current mattress or feather bed under the fitted sheet for your display will round off those edges and make the bed look inviting, fluffy, and warm.
DO PICK THE RIGHT PILLOWS
If you have a full or queen bed, think about limiting the amount of decorative pillows to just your very favorites so you don't overwhelm the bed...or upset your partner! Alternatively if you have a larger bed, avoid small pillows like boudoirs that can look dinky.
Consider two matching Accents or Squares that you can put side by side for a clean, balanced look.
DON'T GO PRINT CRAZY
DO MIND YOUR HEADBOARD
Your bedding should complement the furniture, not overwhelm it and vice-a-versa.
