#2 Thread Counts Matter

High thread count fabrics are a must if you live in colder climates, while lower thread counts suit warmer conditions. Thread counts are measured by the amount of vertical and horizontal threads in a square inch of fabric.

Lower thread counts below 200 are light and airy, however, be careful in selecting a brand that emphasizes quality.[/perfectpullquote]

#3 Some Texture Perhaps?

Pintucks and ruching are some examples of textured design in bedding. If you find that your duvet cover and pillowcase are bland and boring, spice it up with some textured patterns to increase the visual effect.

Textured patterns work well on lighter colored fabrics such as whites and creams. The texture adds another visual component to the bedding that distracts from the plain color scheme.

#4 Selecting the Right Accessories

For a chic decorating look, consider mixing and matching various colors, patterns, and styles with your accessories. For instance, you can blend dark charcoals with grays and navy blues. If lighter colors are your thing, then consider blending whites with tan and cream colors.

We recommend that you keep it a simple as you can, focus on two or three colors and two patterns at most.[/otw_shortcode_quote]

Shams, throw pillows, and velvet throw blankets are some examples of bedding accessories you can add to your stylish duvet and the rest of your bedding to improve the look and feel throughout the room.

#5 Tie it Down

Don’t you just hate it when your duvet moves around inside the cover? Waking up to a thin spot inside the cover that has no duvet between it is no fun. Solve this issue by selecting a duvet cover that has tie-downs in the corners. Simply tie it down and never wake up to a thinned out duvet cover again. Keep in mind that your goal is to transform your space into a heavenly place to sleep and you’ll do this by paying attention to the slightest details.
