Winter is every stylist's favourite season - an excuse to shamelessly layer up textures and fabrics in the name of warmth and comfort. What’s not to love!
There are a few simple tips to recreate that full, fabulous winter bed of your dreams. Start with a textural quilt cover and matching pillowcase set (filled with great quality fluffy inserts, of course!).
For winter, we love velvet, it’s fluffy, plump, and pretty and has been a signature of our Kip&Co range since we started back in 2012.
Colours are enviously lush and vibrant in velvet and provide the perfect statement starting point for your winter bed.
We typically suggest two euros on a queen bed (they’re the big square ones) which add height to the bed - pick a complimentary velvet colour, perhaps a different shade of the same colour you selected for your quilt.
Pair these back with a matching printed sheet set and a second set of pillowcases. Experimenting with printed bedding on sheets and pillowcases is the perfect way to start - it gives you a subtle pop without overwhelming your whole bed.
Next, choose a throw or quilted bedspread - something that looks fabulous both at the end of the bed, but also adds an extra layer of warmth to your bed when you pull it up at night.
Our favourite this season is the (minty tartan throw, it adds a new interest element in its texture, but is also incredibly soft and comfortable.). Finally, add the cherry on top with some statement cushions.
Don’t go overboard! There is nothing worse than having no room left for you in the bed. One or two cushions, mixing different shapes, will be the perfect finishing touch.
