In this installment they tackle a few of your often-asked bedding questions—with answers for a simple and stylish refresh perfect any time of the year!
Q: #DearOKL: What are some soothing/relaxing color schemes that go with a tan upholstered headboard?—@lgdye
A: Great question! We love the look of indigo pillows and white bedding to coordinate with a tan headboard. It’s hard to go wrong with classic blue and white. If you want something a little softer we would recommend light blue or sea-glass green, either in an allover pattern or as embroidery. Perfectly soothing for the bedroom.
Q: How do I arrange pillows and cushions so they look gorgeous?—@suze_riley
A: We recommend mixing scale and pattern to add visual interest to your bedding. You can use Euro shams, standard shams, and pillowcases as a base depending on your preference, and you can also try adding a couple of larger accent pillows along with a small floral or other patterned throw pillow for a fun seasonal refresh!
Q: How can I do an all-white bed without it being boring?—@alli_yost
A: The short answer: Try mixing and matching textures and fabrics. That really adds interest and will give a layered feel that will be anything but boring!
In the video above, our resident bedding expert and stylist Eileen started with a washed-cotton duvet set with a crochet detail for a bohemian, relaxed, and romantic feel. Then she added a textured pattern in a matching matelassé coverlet with Euro shams. These give the duvet set a bit of structure and formality, while the pattern adds some fun. Last, she used sheeting with light blue embroidery. Embroidered sheets add a great pinch of color that you can change out seasonally. Inspired to try an all-white bed?
