3 Tips On Mixing and Matching Bedding

It can be intimidating to work with multiple textile patterns, but when you add layers of patterns onto your bedding, you can create a much more interesting bedroom space. Create a custom look, even when the fabrics used are not! Here are 3 helpful tips to consider while boldly expressing that you don’t play it safe when it comes to your outfitting your bed.

1. Rotate the patterns. Use one on the bed spread, bed skirt, one on the pillows up front, and another on the back pillows.

2. Leave visual “breathing room” between two patterns. Use a solid fabric between two different bold patterns. In this photo the white euro sham pillows are use as an important visual transition to the color and patterns of the throw pillows and duvet cover.

3. Work with three different scaled fabrics. Find one large pattern, one medium, and one small patterned fabric. If you were to use the same sized patterns throughout your bedding set, it would look way too busy. Consider scale and size of your textile designs and vary them to create visual interest. In this picture, the large zebra print on the euro shams contrast well with the circle patterns on the duvet cover.
