What to Look for When Shopping for Bed Linens

When shopping for bed linens it is important to find pieces that appease your style while also maintaining high quality. Linens are a great category to invest in as you spend nearly a third of your life sleeping! Liking the look and style of your bedding is essential as it is the main design focal point of the bedroom, but ensuring that the texture and quality meet your expectations is a must.

Allen and James designers recommend selecting a neutral coverlet or comforter for your bed that is the right texture and weight to meet your sleeping preferences. Next step is to decide on accent colors! We recommend as many as three accent colors or as little as one to incorporate into a duvet to be folded at the foot of the bed and complimentary throw pillows. Do not be afraid to mix patterns! As long as your throw pillows and duvet are in the same color family, patterns are great to mix to help complete and accomplish your stylish new look.
