Sometimes, white bedding is just one element of an all white design. If that look is your goal, the key to success is remembering that not all whites are created equal. Be sure to mix in a variety of patterns, textures, materials and shades to help keep the space visually interesting.
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.
Add space to your bedroom by paring it down to your favorite essentials. The focus of this space is undeniably the bed, so keep furniture pieces and accessories down to a minimum Even better, use sleek, contemporary built-ins for additional storage. Built-ins maximize storage while looking like they’re not even there. A good built-in around your bed creates a cozy sleeping nook while adding plenty of storage.
