Pillowcases: A Great Design Element

Your bedroom is generally a private space – a space that can not only reflect you, but also allow you to relax and recharge at the end of the day.

A great way to express yourself and create that sanctuary is by dressing the bed.  It’s YOUR room, so why not have fun with it?

If you are like me, you love decorating and having fun with different colors, patterns, and looks.  Personally, I crave different styles, and often desire a fresh feeling to my spaces to fit the change in seasons.  Not only that, I’m constantly exposed to new and delicious fabrics!  But it can get very expensive to change things out constantly. Anyone who’s had to buy them knows that quality sheet sets, quilts, and duvet covers are not cheap!! Keeping all of this in mind, I came up with a great way to recharge and refresh my room – and help others do the same – at far less expense.

The answer is to start with neutral bedding.  While many people think of whites, grays and beiges as the only possible neutrals (I’ve gone with whites and off-whites myself), in this situation you can really choose any color as your base, just as long as the pattern and texture remain essentially neutral.  If the idea of staying neutral makes you cringe, remember – this is just your base!  You can build up as much or as little as you want from there.  For example: In the winter, layer your basic look with another blanket, throw, or coverlet in a coordinating or contrasting color, or add in a fun pattern. Underneath, add flannel sheets in your same palette for some cozy texture and added warmth. No matter what the season is, express yourself and your style by adding throw pillows in a variety of coordinating patterns and textures.

In the picture below they’ve gone with white bedding and then added some pops of color and texture with different layers of blankets and pillows.  Everything works together to create a beautiful retreat anyone would love to come home to!

Go wild with your colors and/or prints and jazz up your bedroom, or choose calming colors and designs.  Therein lies the fun – it’s the PILLOWCASES! However you want to add some interest, this is the way to go. It’s far less expensive than changing out your whole sheet set, and who sees the sheets anyway? Leave your pillowcases out to shine, mix and match them, add some throw pillows with easy to change slipcovers on top, and you’ve got a whole new feel to your room.

Ready to change things up?  We’ve got you covered!  With our pillowcases you can customize your look.  Choose one fabric for the entire pillowcase, or have fun with it and choose one fabric for the main part of the pillowcase and another for the edge or cuff – creating your own mix of fabrics and colors. There is no limit to the combinations you can create.

So let your inner designer out to play, let your creativity flow, and buy some new pillowcases today!
