Sleeping Beauty or perhaps The Princess and the Pea is a better reference here. After all, the fairy tale taught us that more bedding is always better. Here, layers upon layers of bed linens in different patterns and textures impart a luxe look befitting even the most particular of princesses (and could provide cushioning from even the peskiest of peas).
1 A floor pillow serves as an excellent oversized toss cushion on a small twin bed.
2 This subtle cross-hatch pattern is small and delicate and reads as a solid from afar.
3 A fitted sheet in a bold solid colour grounds the layers.
4 Embroidered detailing elevates the bedding from everyday to elegant.
5 A nice, nubbly waffle blanket lends a warm, textured touch.
6 Scrolling vines on this plush duvet cover add a carefree air.
You may not have the budget for a beautiful one-of-a-kind painting, but that doesn’t exclude you from the world of art altogether. The gorgeous painting by Toronto artist Madeleine Lamont for our high look (shown above) inspired us to search through old books and vintage online prints (like Vintage Printable) for our low version.

The perfect ruffled quilt
A soft pink ruffled quilt is the big-girl blankie your daughter needs. Youthful and girlie, soft and subdued, the pinks picked here will complement your little one’s maturing palette, even when that promise to stay true to pink fades to a love of decorating with greys.
