Our Step-by-Step Guide to Styling a Bed

The go-to bed styling formula from our stylists

Our team gets a lot of questions about the building blocks of styling, and one of the most common ones is regarding how to style a bed.

There are so many ways to do it, and we could probably do a million posts on our favorite methods, but today we're sharing one of our latest, and most simple ways of styling a bed with some tips from our stylists!

Here's how we made this space come to life with layered textures, patterned accents, and cozy extras:

Our step by step guide to styling a bed

STEP ONE: START WITH THE BASE + BUILD YOUR BASICS

“Breaking up the colors is important. If we use a lighter color on the  bottom, we typically use a contrasting tone on the top Mixing whites and creams might make you nervous, but we say go for it!” - Jen Paul, stylist

STEP TWO: ADD ANOTHER LAYER FOR CONTRAST

STEP THREE: ADD A DUVET

Our favorite way to fold a duvet? Fold it in half and then pull it back into thirds. This makes it look extra fluffy and leaves space for a throw, sheets, a quilt, and pillows!

STEP FOUR: ADD EURO SHAMS

STEP FIVE: ADD GROUNDING PILLOWS

“Think about how you like to sleep, how many pillows you’re okay with, and what it feels like rather than what it looks like. Make sure you actually want to make the bed you create every day, simplifying is better than having something unattainable that you can’t recreate. ” - Kristine Metcalf, lead stylist

STEP SIX: BUILD A TRIANGLE

  1. How would you style a bed using the Scandinavian “method” of having two separate duvets (one for each person), on one king size bed? Sheet color, pillow cases vs duvets etc? Not all white ???

  2. This is so helpful – thank you! Where can I get the gorgeous "grounding pillow used in Step 5? I didn’t see it listed in the slider. ?
