Another throw, drawing in the head and foot of the bed. This pillow and color situation is a good way to bring in two colors to the bed.
Equally tangible colors and fabrics--a warming mix for fall. The top layer has been folded down to reveal the warm middle layer--and make hopping in and snuggling all the easier.
A simple coverlet over the end of the bed does the trick. Lush bedding in a room that certainly invites and promises to warm, yet stays light.
The layers of color from the headboard through the extra pillows to the spread stacks up the comfort level.
Fluffy and comfortable. Consider getting out (or purchasing) a large sturdy tray that allows for tea or coffee to complete your cozy reading spot.
If you don't like to be bundled and bogged down while sleeping (you're insane; it's the best) then LIGHT layers upon LIGHT layers can create a cozy effect while giving you room to breathe. This color combo is awesome.
You can never go wrong with a big fat duvet thrown over. Before recently refreshing and redoing my bedding, my husband and I for years had a simple white duvet and cover that we'd fold at the end of the bed, exposing a simple white fitted sheet and pillows in the summer. SO simple of a process from night to day.
A sleeker layered look with sides tucked in and, yes, are those hospital corners?
A softer more You've-Got-Mail-ish pastel and floral bed.
Another simple ensemble of layers. The throw is the darkest part of the room, and not only ties in with the furniture but adds a heftier detail for winter months ahead.
Pristine and layered, but a throw discreetly nearby.
Adding more pink to this very girly room with this bedding.
Bright and beautiful in its subtlety. Perfect pillows. And it may seem silly, but pillows actually change the culture of the room. Choose an ensemble that will allow you to comfortably slip in and read and I bet big money that you will read more and slip into bed more easily. My favorite combo? A Euro then my own pillow then a standard with a great finished sham with a lumbar pillow to finish the look.
Playful without being obnoxiously juvenile, this kid's room is fun and inviting--especially the bed that creates a sort of refuge with its borders.
More layers and more warmth without looking heavy. Note how fluffy the materials look, especially the comforter.
This is a great cold-weather combo: a sheet set with a coverlet under a folded-back duvet.
