Senior Homes Editor Zoë Gowen believes in a timeless approach to bedding, and, for timeless style, you need to consider layers. The first layer of the bed is the most important layer, and that's a perfect set of sheets. Try to stick with a white set of sheets that won't fade. And, if something does spill on white sheets, you always have the option to bleach them. White sheets also always feel clean – the feeling that you want to always portray in a bedroom. Continue with the all-white look and choose a white coverlet. Make sure, however, that the white of your coverlet matches the white of your sheets – to some companies, white is more of a cream color. Finally, you'll want to style the bed with a matching duvet and Euro shams. Have a little fun with pattern here and bring in your favorite colors. With these tips, your bed will look pulled together with minimal effort.
