The bed looks awesome and color combinations are excellent. Fold the top over four to eight inches, as you normally would fold your sheet over when prepping the bed for sleep. Are you still sleeping with a fitted sheet, a top sheet, a duvet, a blanket, and a big pile of throw pillows? Jenn.

I found an adorable duvet cover and quilt at Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale but did not like the Euro shams so I bought two standard that match the duvet and two that match the quilt and added a cute rectangular accent pillow. They are gorgeous.

And I LOVE to make up my bed! Thanks.

The secret is to buy a duvet insert that’s two or three inches to five or six inches larger than the duvet cover. These simple stretches reduce muscle tension and stiffness.

Plus, what says, “relax!” like white bed linens?

Crisp linens, gentle breezes, and breathable fabrics are so important in helping you get a good nights rest. Thanks for sharing!

I do quilts! HI Katherine, the pillows and duvet came from the Pottery Barn years and years ago! Mind you, I love how the bed looks when it's made, and I always want the bed made when company comes over, but I just don't like the act of doing it. It’s like a faux duvet cover, and the sheets can be a little easier to wash weekly than removing and washing a duvet cover (though real duvet fans know the small extra effort it always worth it). If you are using a feather duvet with a cover, take it off the bed and give is a few good punches with both hands. Even though I don’t like to iron bed linens I will plug in the iron next to the bed (put a fluffy towel under it) and iron the top part of the flat sheet. Or if you live in a part of the world that gets an evening chill, at least swap your heavy down comforter for a lighter, summer weight comforter like we did on the bed above.

Put the flat sheet on the bed with the wrong side facing up. Now here’s where you can really play with color and texture and create a one-of-a-kind designer bedding look.
But a pair of beautiful linen sheets, like our Casa Florentina Washed Linen Sheets are a luxurious alternative if you love the feel of linen and linen’s relaxed texture.

I do quilts!

The shams for the Euro, King, and Standard pillows should be within the same colors, pattern family, or design group (reverse patterns and similar coloring can personalize your sham arrangement).

Make the bed with the flat sheet wrong side up, and plenty of room at the top to fold over your blanket or quilt. Beautiful! I love the colors.
