A few years ago I wrote an article featuring 20 Ways to Make a Bed, so today’s post is a spin off that one. I was helping a client (and friend) pick bed linens for her queen size and she was asking for tips for a cozy + modern look, so I pulled together a few inspirational images for her, below are a few of them.
Since we spend a third of our life in bed, I’ve always believed your bed should be a really special space created by careful consideration of bed linens. The goal is comfort while you’re in it, and some sense of style when your not. (Although if you’re like me, I don’t make my bed on the weekends, I like to leave the linens unmade and all bunched up, inviting me crawl back in.)
Here are ten different ways to mix linens for a modern cozy and inviting bed!
