It’s always a good time to invest in quality bedding. While sticking with neutral sets will always remain classic, there are also plenty of new ways to play up the pattern while styling a timeless bed-scape. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite bedding trends and ideas for the year ahead.
1. Floral Forward
What we see outdoors often inspire our interiors. One of our favorite ways to style a bed is by mixing vintage-inspired florals with cozy textures. The best part? Floral-forward bedding adds a fun element while still remaining timeless.
Much of the styling direction has to do with the print itself and the color palette, but as a general rule, larger prints tend to feel more modern while smaller designs lean traditional.
2. Gingham in Earthy Hues
There's a reason why gingham bedding is a classic. While this pattern has been around for decades, we've been seeing a recent resurgence of gingham in earth-inspired hues.
The key to keeping it modern is to break up the pattern with solids and neutrals to create space for each design element to breathe. For example, layer a gingham pillowcase with a solid top sheet or style a neutral duvet with a gingham sheet set.
3. Layered Pattern
If you can't land on one pattern, pick a few. Try to sprinkle in a few solid sets when working with multiple prints to give the eye a rest. As a general guideline, smaller patterns are easier to mix and match. If you want to go bold, start by selecting one focal piece and layer quieter bedding around it.
Another trick we've learned along the way is to pick a color palette first to unify multiple patterns. It doesn't have to be monochromatic, but sticking with two or three coordinating colors can keep it cohesive.
