There are ways to make your linens work double duty. In addition to their intended purpose, you can incorporate them as part of your overall design. Be sure to choose a set of towels similar in color or pattern to the other accents in the room.
One way to make sure your textiles drive home a relaxed feel is by taking a closer look at color psychology. Blue — particularly in lighter shades like sky and steel — has been shown to evoke feelings of safety and serenity. Consider adding these hues through accent pillows and accessories such as blankets and bed skirts.
As for how to pull this trend off without having the look feel overwhelming, there are a few tricks to keep in mind. Even when you’re only considering duvets, shams and throw pillows, stick to a maximum of three patterns and follow the 60/30/10 rule. Choose one pattern to be the main visual element and use it throughout 60% of the space, the second pattern to accent 30% of the space, and a third, bolder option to be used in the final 10%. For each one, be sure to vary the type and scale of pattern you’re using, so they don’t seem too repetitive.
