gorgeously dressed beds

I received an email from a reader asking if I could share some ‘gorgeously dressed beds’. Of course I can! The feeling he is looking for is Scandinavian. For this look I would keep the look simple and clean. For example, mix crisp white bed linnen with some neutral coloured pillows and bed spread. I love the duvet cover in the image above. In this neutral bedroom, a bold impact is created by with this contemporary patterned bed linen, and accessories in coordinating colours. The bed linen is from Habitat. Unfortunately we don’t have a Habitat store in The Netherlands but I will be making a trip to Antwerp, Belgium (this is the nearest store) to buy this gorgeous duvet cover. It will look gorgeous in our new bedroom!

Crisp white bed linen keeps this room feeling bright and fresh.

This master bedroom is strongly defined by straight lines and a monochromatic palette. The antique Chinese cabinets add warmth to the scheme.

Layer your bed with woolly textured throws in toning colours to create a deliciously comfy bed that will be hard to leave. Similar throws can be found at Nicole Farhi.

You can add sparkle to your sleep zone with shiny cushions, throws and furnture. To keep it fresh, balance with pale walls and crisp white bedlinen. The gold throw is from Next and the cushions are from a selection at John Lewis, Habitat, Clarissa Hulse and BoConcept. There will be more posts about divine bedrooms later this week!

  • I love the grouping of framed mirrors used above each bedside table as well as using chests instead of a standard bedside table.
    Gorgeous selection.


  • Goh je maakt het mij nu wel heel moeilijk… ik ben aan het nadenken over een geheel nieuw in te richten slaapkamer en twijfel nog steeds tussen scandinavisch wit met lichtgrijs en zink (beetje raar misschien maar ik ben gek op zink )
    Maar aan de ander kant zijn twee van de muren van beton en zie ik een combi tussen dat en scandinavisch wit ook helemaal zitten, maar heb nog geen idee hoe …. ENNNNN dan kom je nu met al deze plaatjes aan en die zijn dus allemaal mijn smaak ook nog eens… bah 😉

  • I am glad that you all like this post!

    Will, I hope you now have some inspiration for your bedroom. If not, stay tuned as there will be more post about beautiful dressed beds this week 🙂

  • Desiree, sorry dat ik het je moeilijk hebt gemaakt :). En … later deze week komen er nog een aantal mooie slaapkamers voorbij! Bij betonnen muren is wit beddengoed inderdaad heel mooi. Misschien in combinatie met (donker) grijze kussens/plaid? En een kussentje in zilver? Succes met het inrichten van je slaapkamer!

  • i’m swooning over the bedding in that first photo…right now we have all white bedding, but that image is making me seriously rethink it.

  • I love the look on the 4th picture with all throws. I am not a fan of wool – it makes my skin itch. But my alternative is cashmere and bamboo. I found some great ones at http://www.throwblanketshoppe.com in a variety of colors. I absolutely love how it makes the room look vitage chic through the different textures on the bed. Go see for yourself!! Happy New Year!
