It used to be that when you wanted to decorate your home it was a long and drawn out process involving a decorator, fabric swatches and an interminable wait for custom made bedding and drapes. Today you can surf the net and outfit a room from top to bottom with the click of a mouse; you can browse and buy everything from soft goods to hard goods like bathroom and kitchen faucets online and have it all delivered directly to your door.
The issue then becomes one of taste and style – without the help of a decorator you need to either have a strong sense of style or rely upon magazines, television shows, house tours and the like to learn what looks good and decide what you like and don’t like. Building a sense of style can take years or even decades and you may want a bedroom makeover next week – there are some easy and practical options.
Today’s modern bedding is most likely to consist of a comforter set which includes a bed skirt, a comforter and decorative pillow shams. When you look at bed ensembles it’s a good idea to see what else might be available as part of the overall collection – things like window panels and valances, toss pillows, throws and so on can be mixed and match to complete the look of the room. When you buy from a collection you can shop with confidence and know that everything will look good together.
Most manufacturers employ designers and decorators on staff; they select the prints, patterns and colors to make sure that each item in the collection coordinates perfectly while not necessarily matching precisely. By shopping from a name brand such as Croscill® or Nautica® you know you will get top quality merchandise that looks great.
