Creative Bedding Ideas To Create A Curated Bedroom

It's easy to put together a beautiful bedroom, but how do you create a space that not only looks amazing, but feels like it was tailor-made for you? A place that encapsulates and reflects who you are, what you love, and gives you a sense of home. Here are five methods to use when designing a bedroom that will help you curate cozy spaces full of personality.

"The best rooms have something to say about the people who live in them." - David Hicks, Interior decorator and designer

Find Your Color Scheme for Bedroom Harmony

First thing's first, settle on a color scheme. Having a clear vision for the colors and tones you want to include in your space will make every decision going forward so much easier. Your color scheme is going to be the factor that brings your design together and keeps things cohesive in the end.

Mix Modern & Vintage: Timeless Style with Bedding Inspiration

Combining pieces from various time periods is the key to timeless style that outlasts the ever-changing trend cycle. It's also a great way to give your space that cozy, lived-in feel. In this room, I paired an antique bed frame with the stunning Aliza quilt set by Levtex Home.

Layers, Layers, & More Layers: Elevate Bedroom Comfort with Bedding Essentials

The focal point of the bedroom is, of course, the bed. My trick for creating a bed that looks like it's straight out of a magazine is to layer patterns, colors, and textures. Create some contrast and pull it all together with your color scheme.

On this bed I layered the Aliza quilt with the Washed Linen Duvet in the color “natural” and a vintage, wool throw blanket. 

Pro Tip: Don't be afraid to leave your layers a little messy when you make your bed. A lot of those magazine-featured beds have an unkempt look that gives them an ultra-cozy feel.

Get Thrifty: Art Finds to Decorate Your Bedroom

We can't have a perfectly curated bedroom without art. Hit up thrift stores for unique and original pieces at a great price. If you're having trouble finding exactly what you want, thrift a nice frame and search for art that's in the public domain to have printed.

Be Sentimental: Infuse Your Personality into Your Bedroom Design

You can curate the most beautiful of spaces, but it won't feel like yours unless you personalize it. Incorporate yourself, your family, or things that are meaningful to you. This can take the form of framed photos, mementos from your travels, your favorite books, room themes, artwork tied to specific locations, whatever fits for you.
