Imagine a bed so voluptuous and posh that you or your guests can’t wait until bedtime. It’s an irresistible look that’s all about layers, and you can recreate it at home in no time. Here’s what to do:

 

white bed sheets and pillows

Step 1 TOP YOUR MATTRESS

Add a sink-in soft layer on top of your existing mattress with a memory foam, gel, or latex foam mattress topper. All the best hotels have them and your holiday guests will love you for it.

Step 2 COVER THE PAD

Protect your investment with a moisture- and stain-resistant fabric cover. Choose one with thick quilting for additional softness.

Step 3 TOSS ON A FEATHERBED

To create an unbelievably soft and enveloping sleeping experience, layer on a feather bed or a synthetic hypoallergenic alternative, in addition to the foam topper.

Step 4 INVEST IN SHEETS

For cool comfort and a soft, lustrous feel, make your bed with fine Egyptian cotton sheets, or lower-cost pima. For a cozy night’s sleep, select percale, flannel, or jersey.

Step 5 LAYER IN A BLANKET

Winter or summer, a blanket adds a cozy-making layer to your bedding ensemble. Choose loose-weave cotton for summer and wool, cashmere, or soft alpaca for winter.

Step 6 INCLUDE A DOWN-FILL COMFORTER

Create an ultra-inviting look and feel with a puffy down comforter. Slide it into a washable duvet cover that coordinates with your room.

Step 7 PROTECT YOUR PILLOW

Slip your pillow into a protective cover, then add a pillowcase that matches or complements your sheets.

Step 8 INTRODUCE ACCENT PILLOWS

Plump up the lavishness of your bed with a decorative pillow or an armload in several sizes and shapes for added color and pattern. Euro pillows provide soft back support on a headless bed.

Step 9 FINISH WITH A BED RUNNER

Add a runner or throw to complete your bed with a flourish. This gorgeous hand-embroidered runner brings color and pattern to the foot of the bed.
