Can there be too many decorative pillows when it comes to accessorizing your bed? Actually, Houzz polled followers and asked them how many throw pillows were too many. The answers varied but many people felt that three to six throw pillows were a good number because after that pillows become impractical and have no use. So instead of decorating your bed with throw pillows, let’s look at some other practical furnishings that might help accessorize your bed with style.
Inventory your bedroom and see what kind of furnishings you have. Is your room filled with elegant, sophisticated décor, is it modern, traditional, or rustic. You’ll want to match the style of headboard with your existing décor or find one that matches the look you are trying to achieve. A headboard can be a focal point for your bed and can often make a statement in the room. You can also create your own DYI projects and check out Pinterest for some great headboard ideas.
Mix and match your pillows and also use different textures of fabric and color. Add fluffy round pillows to create a fun look. Yes, there is such a thing as too many pillows, but a good mix of a few pillows helps create a more luxurious look to your bed.
You’ll want to find your style whether that is traditional, classic, modern, or anything in between. Consider if you want your comforter to be a neutral color or a bright and vibrant color. Also, consider a pattern or theme if you are trying to achieve a certain look for your bedroom. Find ways to create comfort and pay attention to the types of fabrics you incorporate. Since you spend a lot of time in your bed find fabrics that are soft, comfortable, luxurious feeling, and wash nicely.
Find sheets that are comfortable and made of good quality. Understanding thread count is important. The higher the thread count the better quality the sheets may be. You’ll also want to check the quality of cotton. For example, the best types of cotton are 100% Egyptian cotton and 100 % Pima cotton. These can be expensive, but they are very soft and wash and wear well over time. 100% cotton is a little rougher type of cotton and you’ll find it wrinkles frequently when you wash it and may not hold up well over time. Remember whatever you choose comfort should be key.
Again, use various kinds of textures, fabrics, and colors when using a bed throw or blanket. There are a few different ways to style your throw on the bed. You can scrunch it up off to one side, you can spread it out entirely across the bed, or you can fold it up at the foot of the bed. Consider it an accent piece and have it match a color in your comforter or the throw pillows you have on the bed.
