Make a Modern Bed
Bedding that features abstract patterns will give your bedroom a calm and cool feel.
Play with color blocking by choosing a comorter that's reversible or by mixing a variety of solids.
Look for bedding that pairs old craft techniques (such as quilting or embroidery) with modern designs and colors.
Graphic patterns and bold geometrics will give your bedroom a strong punch.
Just say no to matching bedding. Pull together sheets, shams, blankets, and duvets from a mix of designers for a layered look that's uniquely yours.
