Bold Bedding To Brighten Your Bed

design by Mark D. Sikes

An easy way to perk up your bedroom for spring and summer is with fresh new linens. I rarely use a complete matching set (it reminds me of 90’s “Bed-in-a-Bags”) but rather mix different kinds of shams, duvets, quilts and pillows. Here are a few schemes I pulled together that say “SUMMER” to me!

Scheme 1- I love this Dorothy Bedding from Biscuit with it’s cool blue and tiny red dot floral.  Bring out the red with their pique shams and a patterned accent pillow or two.

Scheme 2- Cornflower blue is SO happy for summer- use solid quilted Euro shams along the back of the bed, bordered king shams and duvet and then fun floral accent pillows from Lulie Wallace.

Scheme 3- I just about DIED over this blush otomi headboard (pair of twin beds in a little girls room anyone??). Pair it with blush tipped bedding and a funky bolster with an ethnic feel.

Scheme 4- This fern wallpaper would be stunning on the wall behind a wood spindle bed or linen headboard. On the bed use these patterned Euro shams, bordered king shams (bonus point for getting them embroidered) and use a white duvet or quit and this cozy cashmere throw in green!

Scheme 5- Channel Mark Sikes with this seersucker-type stripe duvet and shams, this gorgeous Les Indiennes quilt and funky striped throw pillow.
