Learn how to dress a bed with stylist Kim Ficaro. In this video, Kim shares easy bedding ideas and shows you how to mix and match tonal textures, solid colors, hand-blocked patterns and printed pillows to (re)make the bed of your dreams.

The key to great bed design is starting with a neutral background. Classic white sheets provide a great canvas for your bedding ideas and offer the eye a place to rest when mixed with different colors, patterns and textures.

Once you've set your base, you can introduce new colors and patterns. Quilts are a great tool for layering your bed and providing contrast to your sheets and duvet. In cold weather use a quilt as a decorative accent and when the weather warms up, place your folded duvet at the foot of your bed to accent your quilt and pillows.

Pillows are also a quick, simple way to add texture and variety to your bedding ideas. Choose standard pillowcases that match your sheets and add Euro shams that complement your quilt or duvet. They don't have to be an exact match, but should play off each other. Add throw pillows that you can change easily to add even more versatility to your look.

Learning how to dress a bed offers the perfect chance to makeover your bedroom decor quickly and easily. Use these tips, and your own ideas, to express your personal style and create the layered bed of your dreams.
