Making a bed look good- shop the look
It's always tricky to make a bed look nice with a duvet cover right? Here are two different ways- which one is your favourite?
1- Crisp polished look
My friend Karen Griggs owns a gorgeous luxury countryside retreat called Tofy (Old Forge San Hutton) just a few miles out of York with two holiday cottages. She offers an amazing array of Yorkshire products and foods and takes great care in sourcing items for her cottages too.
I love how the bedroom in one of the cottages has been styled with crisp white linen, duvet tucked in, simple velvet cushions and 2 blanket throws at the end of the bed. The blankets have been superimposed with fringes creating a lovely feature. Layering cotton and wool blankets is a lovely thing to do. Each blanket can be then used to huddle up with a good book in front of the fireplace, or to wrap yourself in whilst having a morning coffee on the patio.

2 -Boho chic look
If you would like to achieve a more boho chic look why not mix patterns. Here a lovely striped blanket covers the end of the bed, whilst a flowery eiderdown is used on top. You can play with pattern scale and type. Another blanket is casually thrown onto the bed- inviting and ready to be used.
