My Go-To Formula for Styling a Bed

Yes, I make our bed every single day. My preference is to keep things quick, easy, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. Click through if you’d like to see my process…

A good sheet set is really the foundation for a comfortable and well-styled bed. In a guest space I stick to classics like cotton, percale, linen, or tencel.


Coverlet or Matelassé

Depending on the season, I like to layer a lightweight coverlet or matelassé over the top sheet. In the next step, I use a lightweight duvet insert.

Duvet or Quilt

I’ll layer on the duvet. This one is a basic, white cotton option with a very lightweight down insert. It makes a great base for layering and adding some loft, making the bed look nice & plush.

Blanket or Throw

I enjoy incorporating a blanket or throw at the foot of the bed for practicality purposes… I style throws differently depending on the size and texture.

Sleeping Pillows

It’s just nice to have options or give guests the ability to choose their preference. They’re also nice for propping yourself up to read or watch TV.

Nice bedding is a simple luxury that can really make you feel good. I’m curious- do you make your bed everyday? I feel like it’s a pretty common thing, but I could be wrong!
