    Natural Linen

    Natural linen is informal and soft, making it an ideal neutral bedroom bedding idea. This greige bedspread provides a blank canvas to showcase a patterned coverlet. A subtle stripe on the bench at the foot of the bed furthers the neutral color scheme without being distracting. A blue area rug and throw pillow add hints of color while keeping the look sweet and simple.

    Add Accents to White

    An all-white bedding set makes a room feel clean and luxurious. In this country-style bedroom, ruffled edges on the comforter give feminine charm and soften the room's wood plank wall and flooring. A floral quilt at the the foot of the bed adds delicate pattern to the bright white bedding idea.

    Match Colors with Tone

    This southwestern decor sticks to bold natural hues for a on-theme color scheme. The golden floor rug complements tones in the wall art and accent pillows, while reds and greens in the comforter and curtains add a broad spectrum of natural tones. Mushroom wall paint matches the color of the rustic wood bed frame and beige carpet.

    Cabled Texture

    Use a cable-knit throw blanket instead of a quilt or comforter for cozy texture. The ivory blanket on this beautiful bedding idea is reminiscent of fisherman-style knit sweaters, adding to the room's nautical theme. Striped pillows and shades of ocean blue complete the beachy bedding decor.

    Match Bedding Style to Furniture

    For a cohesive bedroom decorating idea, choose bed linens that harmonize with the style of your furniture. This country-style quilt complements an antique wood headboard. Small patterns on the accent pillows and sheets add interest to the white coverlet and Euro shams.

    Layer On Pattern

    Lively bedding is an easy way to introduce color and pattern into your bedroom. Here, geometric accent pillows incorporate several shades of pink and purple. Florals, stripes, and an arabesque print on the comforter all relate thanks to a common color scheme. A fluffy arm-knit throw blanket ties the cozy bedding idea together.

    Limit the Pillows for a Tailored Look

    In any room, an easy way to develop a color scheme is to start with a fabric you love. This geometric quilt is the star of this master bedroom bedding idea. Its pattern continues on an accent pillow and its nubby texture repeats in the area rug below. For a minimalist look, limit the pillows to just the one you sleep on, a Euro-style pillow for color, and an accent pillow for emphasis.

    All One Color

    Make matching easy with bedding, accent pillows, and a wall color all in a similar shade. In this bedroom, a brown floor rug adds contrast to an all periwinkle scheme. Blue and gray bedding—including a blue comforter, blue pillow shams, and a contrasting gray bed skirt—stay warm thanks to metallic accents. Light wall art relates to white lampshades and side tables for a dreamy setup.

    Enlist Tiny Patterns

    This beautiful bedding idea utilizes many small patterns instead of one overwhelming large pattern for a fun, eclectic look. Small palm trees grace the bed skirt, and geometrics cover the upholstered headboard and fabric stool at the foot of the bed. Each pattern has a neutral background for cohesion.

    Go for Jewel Tones

    Deep jewel tones add character and glamour to any bedroom. This bedding relies on fuchsia and teal as base colors for a bold scheme. The major mix of patterns between the floral duvet and leopard lumbar pillow adds instant interest.

    Look for Unique Edging

    Look to the trim or edging on sheets and comforters as a way to add a new shape to bedding. This basic white bedspread gains character from scalloped edging and ribbon trim. Pairing muted coral with light blue and gray bedding gives the space a subtle mermaid vibe.

    Make Use of Big Patterns

    Get a preppy, contemporary look with big patterns in bright colors. A Kelly green comforter and scarlet throw pop against white paneled walls. A yellow zebra-print pillow contrasts the striped sheets and geometric comforter pattern. Contemporary bed making means dispensing with layers of pillows. Keep two or three for sleeping and add no more than three accent pillows to reinforce the color scheme—otherwise you'll end up with pillows all over the place.

    Use Complementary Colors

    Complementary colors fall on the opposite sides of the color wheel. This bedroom marries royal blue and burnt orange for a bold bedding color combination. White walls and a white coverlet allow the colorful accents to stand out.

    Practice Pillowscaping

    Think of bed pillow arrangements as "pillowscaping." For an uncluttered look, prop large, square pillows behind the ones you use for sleeping. Then arrange orderly rows of throw pillows in contrasting shapes, coverings, and sizes. Here, the chevron pillows in the middle connect the cream bedding to the teal headboard. The same rules apply for throw blankets. This design layers a neutral blanket with a luxurious teal throw for added texture and color.

    Choose Timeless Color Combinations

    Invest in quality bedding and a timeless color combination and you'll enjoy the sheets for years. The green-and-white scheme in this bedroom will never go out of style and will always feel relaxing and natural. Luxury sheets with a decorative top edge are meant to be turned back over the coverlet to display the edging. Pillow shams on the accent pillows repeat the edging, while the bed pillows feature an embroidered vine motif.

    Mix and Match Bedding for Personal Style

    Why confine yourself to the bed-in-a-bag approach? Instead of buying a matching linen set, mix up sheets, pillowcases, and coverlets to make your own creative statement. The floral quilt at the end of this bed relates to the ikat pillows and wall art with similar colors.

    Rely On Throws

    This neutral bedroom uses a nubby throw to add interest over a simple cream quilt. The large tassels at the ends lend a quirky vibe. The best part of using throw blankets for bedding decor? They can be easily changed out for a much smaller price tag than a whole set of new bedding.

    Look for Texture

    The frayed texture of this beautiful bedding gives character to an otherwise neutral color scheme. The natural texture of the fabric reflects the rustic vibe of a stained wood headboard. A coordinating lumbar pillow has a similar shaggy texture and ties in a small amount of soft purple.

    Keep It Grayscale

    This modern bedroom decor integrates every shade on the spectrum between black and white—plus a major pop of color thanks to a bright orange headboard. This gray bedding idea makes picking a color scheme simple. Black, white, and gray are easy to work with because of their ability to stand out against one another.

    Keep Three Sets of Sheets for Each Bed

    Rosy sheets add a hidden pop of color underneath white and gold bedding. When you're stocking the linen closet, think variety. A set of sateen or percale sheets in your preferred color scheme will keep the bed cool and comfortable in summer. For winter, a flannel set provides cozy warmth. It's also a good idea to have three sets of sheets: one on the bed, one in the closet, and one in the laundry. Rotating sheets makes them last longer.

    Add Velvet Accents

    Cozy velvet adds an instant feeling of luxury to a bed. A velvet blanket and shams in a rich navy blue color feel sophisticated but not stuffy in this bedroom design. Sheepskin on an ottoman and a throw pillow adds a second layer of soft texture.

    Balance Color and Pattern with White

    Bold patterns and colors dominate this eclectic bedroom decor. Mismatched throw pillows and a blue nightstand add a fun and creative twist. A white coverlet and white walls provide relief from the mix of pinks and blues.

    Preppy Patterns

    Combining almost any bright color with navy will create a preppy look. Greek key accent pillows match the streamlined shapes in the furnishings, while a flourished Kelly green pattern on Euro pillows and window treatments adds contrasting pattern. A natural rug grounds the vibrant bedroom decor.

    All Neutral Bedding

    Keep your bedroom color scheme ultra simple by sticking to neutral and white decor. This bedroom uses a light tan, cream, and white color palette to create an inviting and therapeutic sleeping space. Subtle patterns on the duvet and accent pillows add interest without distracting.
