How to Make Your Neutral Bedding Pop

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax and unwind. And one of the key elements that can make your bedroom feel inviting is your bed. If you've gone for a neutral color scheme for your bedding, you're in luck! Neutral bedding serves as a versatile canvas that allows you to have some fun with throw pillows. In this post, we'll show you how to style your neutral bed using throw pillows to create a cozy, stylish, and personalized retreat.

1. Start with a Neutral Base

First things first, make sure your bed is decked out in neutral colors. Think whites, beiges, soft grays, or gentle pastels. These colors create a soothing and calming backdrop for your space. Shop our neutral pillows to begin your canvas.

2. Choose a Standout Pillow

Every well-dressed bed needs a star player. This could be a larger, eye-catching pillow or a lumbar pillow that instantly grabs attention. Pick a throw pillow in a color or pattern that stands out from your neutral bedding. This will set the tone for the rest of your pillow arrangement.


3. Mix up the Textures

Texture is your secret weapon for making your bed feel inviting. Consider throw pillows made from different materials like velvety softness, airy linen, luxurious silk, or cozy faux fur. Mixing textures adds depth and warmth to your bed. Try pairing a silky smooth pillow with a chunky knit one for that perfect blend.

4. Get Playful with Patterns

Feeling a bit adventurous? Add some patterns to your pillow collection. Stripes, florals, geometric shapes, or even animal prints can jazz up your neutral bedding. Just make sure the colors in the patterns harmonize with your overall theme.

5. Mix and Match Sizes and Shapes

A stylish pillow arrangement includes a variety of sizes and shapes. Combine square, rectangular, and round pillows to create visual interest. Start with the larger pillows at the back and layer the smaller ones in front. This layering technique adds depth and dimension to your bed.

6. Keep the Color Palette in Check

To maintain a cohesive look, limit the number of colors you introduce. Stick to one or two accent colors that complement your neutral bedding. This will prevent your pillow collection from looking too busy and maintain a sense of balance.

7. Less is More

While it's tempting to go all out with pillows, especially if you have a large bed, don't overdo it. Too many pillows can make your bed seem cluttered and become a hassle to rearrange every night. Aim for a chic yet manageable arrangement that suits your bed's size.

8. Add a Throw Blanket

To complete the look, throw a matching or coordinating blanket at the foot of your bed. It adds an extra layer of coziness and ties everything together.

In a nutshell, styling a neutral bed with throw pillows is a fun way to showcase your personality and create a tranquil oasis in your bedroom. By mixing and matching colors, textures, patterns, and shapes, you can turn your bed into a beautiful focal point that enhances the overall vibe of your room.

And if this feels overwhelming... our favorite go-to is styling your existing simple linens with one of our beloved extra long lumbars. No fuss! 1 and done!

So, get creative, experiment with different pillow arrangements, and enjoy the transformation of your sleep space!
