How to: 4 ways to make the perfect bed

We've put together 4 stylish ways to make the perfect bed.


Making up a bed for overnight guests doesn’t have to be a chore. Here’s how to dress up yours beautifully (and painlessly). The end result? Bright-eyed and well-rested company.

Our top tips for making the perfect bed
  • Enlarge it: At 26 inches square, Euro pillows are great for reading or lounging. Try a print that coordinates with your duvet.
  • Mix it: Experiment with saucy accent cushions to deliver a punch of pattern and scale.
  • Tuck it: A folded duvet cover reveals a tucked-in coverlet and top sheet.
  • Fluff it: The charm of a duvet is that you rarely need to make the bed – just fluff and go!
  • Layer it: Extra texture is added with a cashmere throw at the end of the bed.
  • Finish it: A floor-length bed skirt completes the look.
  • Drop it: A woven rug next to the bed adds warmth and is soft underfoot.
