There is a big difference between making the bed (a gesture with which it is convenient to start the day) and dressing it to make the bedroom look like a magazine or almost better, like a hotel room.
The differences are many and are found in details such as cushions, sofa covers, the length of the bedspreads or duvet covers and in the layers of textiles that fill the bed.
Experts call the “art” of dressing the bed the “bed styling”. The good news is that you can learn to dress the bed with style. Now that we are condemned to continue enjoying our home to the fullest and that the bedroom has become another multifunctional room, (sometimes teleworking included) it is a great time to learn how to dress the bed in style.
To get the best bed styling, Yolanda Pisa, General Director of Carmen Borja clothing store , a legendary bedding firm based in Gijón, gives us a few tips to get the perfect bed.
Bet on using good sheets
Yolanda is clear about it. It is better to bet on noble fabric sheets, with quality and sanforized (treated so that they do not shrink), for easy maintenance.
Betting on having good sheets is based on the choice of your materials.
Cotton sheets they facilitate perspiration and are more hygienic. A cotton percale sheet, with a spinning of more than 300 threads, it will have a unique touch facilitating comfort and rest. The softness goes hand in hand, apart from the number of threads, the quality and the selection of cottons that will make up the weft of the fabric.
The thread is, without a doubt, another unique fabric for rest, but with a much more complicated maintenance when ironing. I know
recommends, above all, during the summer and with high temperatures, “having it is a luxury”. The threads when washed are wrinkled by the mechanized process of the same, in addition, chemical products are used that wear down the fabric and thus its durability, something that the consumer should take into account if we want a sustainable use of the garments

Decorate the bed with cushions
One of the essential elements to assemble a great bed are the cushions. According to Yolanda “The ideal bed should have at least 6 to 8 cushions and their placement will be from largest to smallest size, 90×40 cm 70×40 cm, 50 x 50, 45 x 30… Su filling has to be very compact, otherwise the desired effect will be lost. “
Colors always in gradient
The tonality of the cushions varies according to taste. The whites marry perfectly with everything. For example, with earth colors, pastel, camel, chocolate brown … For a house in the Mediterranean the different shades of blue with white will always be welcome.
Here, as in the recommended images, go to the same chromatic range of colors (to achieve a relaxed effect), but you can also choose to include contrasting colors in some cushions, better in the smaller cushions.

Bedspreads or covers do not go alone
To complete a bed do not forget to use a canopy or base cover. Yolanda gives us this trick “To make a bed look nice, the fall of the quilt must be less on the sides than on the feet. This will add elegance to the bed. “
Bed skirt in washed linen
Plaids, the ideal complement that will give prominence to the style of your room.
Another essential element to achieve the perfect bed. The plaids hto cover the width of the bed and allow at least 12 inches to hang down each side. There are those that reach to the floor, but these are recommended for large rooms. “They remain perfect with a matching pair of cushions. Normally they will be the smallest and close all of them “.
