How to Layer your Bamboo Sheets for a Relaxing Bedroom

Is there a better feeling than walking into your bedroom and seeing a perfectly made bed? Your bedroom is a place of refuge and comfort, a sanctity of peace and calm, and a beautifully styled bed is the finishing touch to creating a truly remarkable space.

However, not everyone is born with interior design skills, so we thought we’d show you how to perfectly layer your sheets and bedding to create a relaxing and welcoming space. 

Forget about hiring an interior decorator; just follow our simple guide to making your bed like a professional stylist. 

Basic rules when layering bedding

Use single colour sheets: always opt for a solid print for your sheets rather than busy patterns. We’re crazy about neutrals, as they allow you to layer on the prints and patterns later by adding throw rugs and pillows. White or off-white make the room look cleaner, and white sheets match every kind of décor.

Match your layers: match your bamboo pillow covers and blankets with other layers. Typically, we recommend matching standard pillowcases to the sheets and euro shams to the duvet cover. 

Throw in a footer: once you have the essential layers, think about adding a footer to the bed, either a throw rug or an extra duvet in a contrasting but complementary colour. A knit blanket also works well if you want to keep things light. 

Add a personal touch: now that your bed is nicely matched up, add in some personality with some carefully selected throw pillows. Throw pillows are where contrast thrives. You can afford to make eclectic choices, and feel free to change up your throw pillows to match your mood!
