Some of the best bedtime stories are ones of the teller’s own invention. Likewise, some of the best-dressed beds are those that bear an individual’s unique stamp. One way to achieve that is by choosing a palette, then combining patterns, brands and textures. We used a blend of pieces from high-end boutiques and mass-market retailers to show that similar looks are available in a range of price points. But the secret to making a bed your own is in mixing it up!
