Start With Three Colors
"It’s always a good idea to start with the fabrics (bedding, curtains, rugs) in the room because it's easy to match paint to a fabric, but much harder to hunt for the right bedding after already choosing a paint color." Starting with three hues (like the blue, green and white here) directs the different colors for the rest of the space.

Mix Stripes, Plaids, and Houndstooth
"These are classics to have in your bedroom that will never go out of style. You can also [swap them out] seasonally to help make the place look fresh."

Layer On The Texture
"A lot of people think you need a ton of color to make a room feel rich, but texture is just as important — especially in a bedroom. Knits, linens, and chunky wovens are all great ways to add depth and create a cozy, collected space."

Opt For A Dark Duvet
"If you have a good amount of natural light in your room, think about going with a darker hue for your bedding. It creates a cozy, nest-like environment with lots of drama."

Try A Geometric Pattern
"It’s a great way to get the feeling of crisp white linens, but with a bit of an edge and color punch. It also doesn’t feel trendy like other patterns and can work with the different seasons."
