I see so many pretty made beds in shelter magazines and on Pinterest. After concentrating on a few design styles that appealed to me, I feel like I finally got the look of my own master bed just right! With up to a third of our lives spent snoozing under the covers (hopefully getting a solid 8 hours a night), a great mattress and comfortable linens are a worthy investment, plus how fun is it to dress up our beds in our own personal style?
What’s the secret to a well dressed bed you might ask? I thought I’d ask an expert for her best tips. I’ve been a fan of Annette Tatum’s style for years, and I completely love her line of sophisticated and soft patterns for both adults and kids. I asked Annette to offer up some suggestions for a well dressed bed, and she was kind enough to share her secrets! (I added the inspirational images along the way to illustrate.)
Tell us Annette in your expert opinion, what is the secret to a well dressed bed?
1. Think in Layers
“I am a big fan of layering solids and prints on a bed. I also like to have a basic white always on hand as well as an assortment of prints that I can mix in depending upon the season.
