Dress up your Bed in many ways

Lets have a little experiment here on how we transform our very own bedrooms into stylish settings.  Which is your favorite among these ideas below…

:Bright & Girly Look:

====>  If you’re interested in feminine style that’s not stuffy, super traditional or too grown-up, then you may want bedding filled with vibrant florals. To add a young and girly look to this bed, a duvet featuring a large-scale botanical print with bold orange and blue was layered with a variety of bright throw pillows. To keep the feminine look fresh, stick with super-saturated tones, like hot pink, tangerine and aqua, instead of muted colors or pastels.

:Cottage Casual:

====> A popular fit for bungalows, cabins and coastal homes, cottage-casual style is all about super comfy textures, forgiving fabrics and a no-fuss vibe. Washed denim is an excellent duvet choice for cottage-casual beds. When mixed with nubby fabrics, such as basketweave wool or stonewashed linen, a bed can become timeless, as well as gender neutral.

:Vintage:

====> Loved by men, women, boys and girls, the vintage-Americana look is characterized by worn textures, a touch of farmhouse style and a mix of both old and new elements. This look demonstrates the more masculine side of vintage Americana with its navy, washed-linen duvet, check and gingham fabrics and faded red throw. Accessories, such as vintage 35mm cameras and industrial table fans, help bring this look to life.

:Understated:

====> Although highly regarded by interior designers for longevity and simplicity, an understated bedroom ensemble is far from easy to achieve. The key to the less-is-more approach is a well-edited mix of stitching, fabrics and accessories with sculptural shapes. Here, a blend of white bedding in casual, breathable fabrics mixed with clean, contemporary lines and rustic textures strikes the perfect balance of visual tension.

:Luxe:

====> Luxe spaces can be masculine or feminine and are characterized by rich textures, sultry fabrics and a strong use of metallics. This ensemble mixes royal tones of purple and gold with glamorous textiles, like silk and men’s suiting fabrics.

:Bohemian:

====> Bohemian bedrooms are a perfect fit for those who like an unstructured, handmade vibe packed with pops of color, quirky patterns and global influence. To dress up this bed with bohemian style, a lightweight tapestry was draped over the headboard and layered with a bright orange, knit throw. A mix of ethnic prints on the pillows adds a cooler touch of saturated pink, while stacks of vintage books bring a collected addition to the console table.

:Monochromatic:

====> If you find color and contrast intimidating, then monochromatic bedding may be perfect for you. The trick to this tone-on-tone look is layering several shades and tints of the same color for just enough depth to keep the look from becoming flat.

:Rustic Modern:

====> If you’re a fan of farmhouse style but also prefer the clean lines of contemporary design, rustic modern may be right up your alley. This bed’s rustic-modern charm stems from a nubby, knotted throw draped over the headboard, a mix of earth-toned linens and tons of coarse textures seen in the rope accessory and wool ottoman.
