Contemporary style is all about maintaining sharp edges and harsh contrasts. To do this, make sure your bedding features either a solid color or a print with rigidly defined shapes. It’s also helpful to echo these lines throughout the room, so this trend may work best for those whose furniture already has similar angles to it.
You could also take this look a step further by decking out the room in a full-on coastal style. Here, in addition to contrasting fresh whites and pale blues, focus on including patterns that harken back to afternoons spent on the sand. For example, you may want to look for bedspreads that showcase a seashell or anchor theme. If you can, round out the whole look by using furniture and décor items made from fibers such as wicker.
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.
