We gave you part one last week, so today we give you part two of this Orange Box topic: Our designers’ favorite ways to make a bed!

DESIGNER TODD PRINCE

“I think bedding should be super practical. You have to be able to clean it! I love a coverlet with a duvet folded at the foot of the bed. That allows your bedding to be changed out with the seasons, since we need to be able to do that here in the South! On a king bed, I love doing two king size pillows against the headboard with 3 euroshams in front. I’m all about practicality, texture, and color. I love a pretty and functional bed!”

DESIGNER CAMILLE HOLLAND

“My favorite way to make a bed usually starts with crisp white bedding and a white coverlet, while using a neutral soft patterned fabric for euros or accent pillows! Simple and classic!”

DESIGNER LINDSEY TOWNSEND

“I like to keep an overall clean and simplistic look, definitely not too over done.  I love accent fabrics, so if I use a really bold pattern fabric as a large lumbar across the front, I will use fairly simple euro shams behind the lumbar to balance it out. I tend to use euro shams most often because I like the height they give (unless the headboard is very low, then I will use standard shams.) Also, I like always having something at the foot of the bed. It can be a folded duvet, throw, or bed scarf. Layers of texture and soft pattern can help create a most inviting environment!”

DESIGNER KATY HINES

“I always start with whites for the basics like coverlets, sheets, etc. It’s fresh, crisp, and relaxing. Then I layer color and texture in the accent pillows and throws to tie in with the paint, art, and accessories.”
