Start with softness

You spend a great deal of time in bed, so it’s okay to splurge a bit when it comes to dressing it! The trick is to start with high-quality sheets that feel soft and soothing as you slide into bed. It’s a common misconception that the higher the thread count the better the sheets. This is only sometimes true! Look, instead, for high-quality fabric like Egyptian cotton or organic cotton. Even in lower thread counts, these natural materials will feel much smoother and comfortable.

Layers on layers

The fall season has arrived and, just as in fashion, layering is the way to go. Aside from the added warmth and cushion, layering is a simple way to add visual interest through coordinating colors and textures. A warm comforter acts as a great base. A quilt or coverlet can be folded and draped over the end of the bed for an extra bit of height or a splash of color. Toss a patterned throw blanket over the corner and you’ll have achieved the perfect blend of elegant and casual.

Make it your own with custom pillows

With thousands of fabrics to choose from, you can truly get a personalized look for your bed with custom pillows. There’s no better way to inject your personal style than by adding extra pillows, whether you go with a bold pattern or interesting texture. Though they may not be the most practical – their purpose is generally purely aesthetic – decorative pillows certainly do add a personal touch to your personal oasis.
