The Well Dressed Bed


Hello, everyone! It's Mari here for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social networking community where interior designers from around the world can show their work and design enthusiasts can find interior design inspiration for their own projects.  As part of my job, I often get the opportunity to visit lovely blogs like It’s a New Day to share some of the great interior designs I've discovered.

Today's guest post is titled The Well-Dressed Bed and I think the eight below easily fit into that category. When it comes to outfitting a beautiful bed, style doesn't matter. Whether your preferred look is formal traditional, chic modern or warm and inviting vintage, with a little thought and savvy shopping you can go to sleep at night and wake up to face a wonderful new day in your own well-dressed bed. For your inspiration:

This sunny space shows that the well-dressed bed can be at once colorful and chic. With a vintage feel, the print is a fresh and contemporary bright paisley design. I love the glamorous headboard with the more casual look of the bedding.

What would be more perfect for a room with a sea view than pure white to dress the bed? From the gauzy dust ruffle to a thick fluffy comforter, this bedding is so inviting.

This slightly rustic bedroom design gets the chic treatment with beautiful gold-trimmed striped bedding. Sleek swing arm wall lights are the perfect fixtures for a bed without a conventional headboard.

Bella Notte Linens offers some of the most gorgeous and comfortable earth-friendly bedding around today. The company knows how to dress a vintage bed with yummy colors and textures.

As seen here, the well-dressed bed can sometimes take its cues from fashion. Knitted and crocheted bedding, pillows and poufs were all the rage last season and we have a feeling that trend will continue throughout this year and beyond. Doesn't this bedroom inspire lots of decorating ideas for fall? It's never too early to start collecting ideas.

An eclectic array of bedding adds a chic feel to this rustic bedroom. This well-dressed bed can easily handle a variety of patterns based on a palette of white and browns. Unexpected modern wall lamps are perfect for reading in bed.

In this lovely open loft bedroom space, the focus is on a dream-worthy bed sumptuously draped for beauty and privacy. A voluminous gathered bed skirt puddles on the floor, mimicking the draperies around it.
