How To Layer and Style a Bed Like a Designer

How to layer and style a bed like a designer is easier than you think! Let’s show you every yummy textured layer and discuss how to make a bed you can’t wait to sink in to.

YOUR MATTRESS: THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR BED

It all starts with a good mattress! We spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, so make sure your body is happy with what it is laying on.

LAYER 1: MATTRESS PROTECTOR

A mattress is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your home, so be sure and protect it! There are all sorts of mattress protectors on the market, and I’ve tried a lot of them.

My favorite of all time has been organic cotton mattress protector from Savvy Rest. It doesn’t have that vinyl, plastic feel that most have and it is super breathable.

LAYER 2: FITTED SHEET

When it comes to your sheets, you have many choices! Cotton, printed, white, colored, bamboo, knit, woven, thread count, luxury or thrift store (ewe) . . . but I prefer to keep it simple. Linen. Always 100% pure flax, delectable linen.

LAYER 3: FLAT OR TOP SHEET

The flat sheet will go on top of the fitted sheet – which I am sure you are already aware of. But I have been to hotels or airbnb’s that seem to miss this idea, and have left off the flat top sheet.

It just feels a bit un-nerving wondering if they have washed the blanket or duvet that is directly touching your (and other people’s) skin.

LAYER 4: THIN QUILT OR BLANKET

Place a very thin blanket or quilt on top of the flat sheet. In the warmer months, a top sheet and this thin blanket is likely all you will need. The rest can be pulled back.
