How to Layer a Bed: A Step-by-Step Guide

Prepare to be swept away in a tide of unparalleled comfort and rejuvenation as we proudly present our Bed & Bath Carnival, featuring our luxurious bed and indulgent bath to transport you to a state of immense relaxation!


The stars of this launch are undoubtedly our perfectly coordinated bed and bath collection, meticulously designed to bring harmony and elegance to your space but we're also here to guide you through the steps to creating the perfect bed ensuring you can unwind and experience the joy of restful sleep, enhanced by our exquisite bed collection.


So, shall we?



  • Step 1: Start with a Quality Mattress Your bed's foundation is crucial and a quality mattress is just that! It supports your body but also sets the stage for the layers to come. Choose one that suits your comfort needs—firm, medium, or plush.


  • Step 2: Once you have the perfect mattress, cover it with a mattress protector. This extends the life of your mattress and keeps it clean and fresh by safeguarding it from spills and stains.


  • Step 3: Consider a mattress topper. Why do you need it? Well! Mattress toppers provide support and extra comfort, thereby extending the life of your mattress and improving your sleep quality.


  • Step 4: Next up and an important step, selecting the right bed sheet and let us tell you mate, it's not as easy as it is assumed to be! But worry not! We are breaking it down for your ease:


  • Fitted vs Flat Sheet-The battle is real: First decide if you prefer a fitted sheet or a flat sheet.
  • Fabric- Next, opt for natural fabrics like cotton or linen for breathability and comfort. For an extra luxurious feel, you may consider organic cotton as well.
  • Thread Count: A higher thread count often means a softer, more durable sheet and we offer a variety of thread counts to suit your comfort.
  • Colour, Prints and Pattern- Choose colours that bring a sense of tranquillity to your space. Whether you're into a classic, monochromatic vibe or a fun pop of colour, our collection has just the right shades to turn your bedroom into a peaceful retreat. When it comes to prints, the choice is yours—stick with solid colours or subtle patterns for a timeless look, or go bold with vibrant prints and trendy designs to add some personality.


  • Step 4: Next, add a duvet or comforter. Choose from our organic cotton or super-soft cotton for ultimate comfort. Coordinate your sheets and comforter—solid sheets with a printed comforter or mix and match patterns. And one more point! Use a duvet cover to protect against dust and spills, ensuring longevity.


  • Step 5: Consider a quilt for added warmth and dimension. Not only does it provide an extra layer of cosiness, but a quilt also brings a touch of style and personality to your space. And how to coordinate it? You can pick one of a contrasting colour that can be matched with the other components of your bedding.


  • Step 6 : Add Euroshams for a sophisticated touch! These large square pillows enhance the visual appeal of your bed aesthetically, while functionally, they provide additional support and comfort when sitting up in bed. Well! How about matching these Euroshams with the cool, contrasting colour of your quilt?


  • Step 7: Next, for your pillows, first thing, cover them with pillow protectors to protect them against dirt, allergens, and moisture. You can then arrange your pillows thoughtfully for both comfort and aesthetic appeal. Start with the Euroshams to create a supportive base, then layer the pillows in front, mixing textures and patterns with your duvet or quilt to enhance the visual interest.


  • Step 8: Complete the look with a throw that coordinates with the colours and textures of your bedding ensemble. When draped casually at the foot of the bed, a throw not only adds a cosy and inviting feel but also ties together the entire look of your bed.


  • Step 9: The final step, coordinate your cushions and curtains to complete your bed-making exercise by matching or complementing colours and patterns. Use cushions that pick up colours from your bedding. For a balanced aesthetic, choose curtains in a shade that complements your bedspread.


And, voilà! There you have it!


Sweet dreams!
