Looking for some fun bedding combinations? I’m taking the same bedding elements and combining them in different ways for tons of options.

I love my bed.

Truth?

My bed has to be made every day. If I leave the room and the bed is made then I feel like I can take on the world.

So today? I thought we’d talk about bedding.

And I need some help.

I ordered new bedding and came up with three combinations and I thought it might be fun if you helped me pick your favorite.

You know.

Just like decorating with friends.

I started with one combination—but I’ve made so many beds in my life and there were so many fun ways to combine the bedding that I created another combination.

And then another.

And now I need an opinion.

Can you tell me which one is your favorite?

My Favorite Bedding Combinations

(And Where You Can Get Them)

Bedding set #1

This is where I started.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pillow covers. I’ve shared them before on the window seat. That’s where I started. I thought I might move them in here on the bed and layered in the rest of the bedding to complete the look.

I started with this basic white duvet. It’s my go-to duvet. A queen-sized is under $25 and it comes in tons of colors and there are ties at each of the corners so you can tie the duvet in place and there’s a zipper.

Next, I folded this stitched patterned khaki quilt over the end of the bed. Isn’t that stitching so pretty? It looks super high-end and it’s so affordable.

At the end of the bed, I added this white tufted chenille duvet cover that comes in several different tufted patterns. This pattern was my favorite and it’s so pretty and it comes with two tufted chenille pillow shams, too.

Then I tossed this tasseled throw over the end of the bed and added a throw pillow to the bedding combination.

I linked what I could with this bedding combination:

Bedding set #2

Here’s the second option with a little bit of a change up.

I kept this basic white duvet. It’s a really good foundation for any bedding combination. A queen-sized is under $25 and it comes in tons of colors and there are ties at each of the corners so you can tie the duvet in place and there’s a zipper.

Next, I folded this khaki and white striped farmhouse quilt over the end of the bed. Then, I added this stitched patterned quilt. The stitching is so intricate and looks so high end.

Then I added these two pom pom pillows with khaki and white stripes and this gray embroidered pillow (that’s under $12).

I linked what I could with this bedding combination:

Bedding set #3

Here’s the third option with some of the same bedding elements and a little bit of a change up.

Instead of the white duvet, I added this khaki and white striped farmhouse quilt that gives a little more overall pattern to the bed. Then, I added this stitched patterned quilt. Just look at that stitching.

At the end of the bed, I added this white tufted chenille duvet cover that comes in several different tufted patterns. This pattern was my favorite and it’s so pretty and it comes with two tufted chenille pillow shams, too.

Then I added these two pom pom pillows with khaki and white stripes and a damask khaki pillow. This is an old one that’s no longer in stock, but I found this similar option on Amazon.

I linked what I could with this bedding combination:

And now?

Can you help a friend out with a little opinion?

Which one is your favorite?

Option #1

Option #2

Option #3

So many bedding combinations.

So little time.

I’d love it if you’d let me know in the comments which one you like the best. Also—if you think I should add one of the bedding elements to one of the options, I’d be happy to adjust, too.

I have a bed waiting to be made….

….just waiting on your opinion. 🙂

    They are all beautiful. My favorite is option 2. Good luck. Thanks for the choices. We are shopping for new bedding.

    Option #2-crisp, clean and straight forward with just the right amount of color in the pillows. I think even my husband would attempt to make this bed to the specs if I was not home and that’s a plus!

    Love option 1, second option 3....#1 looking so inviting and comfortable.... Love the throw...like the look of less pillows on both of these options.

    Good Bed Morning, All three are gorgeous! My favorite is #1, no wait, #2, darn, #3... LOL... Any of these are beautiful and I think you should rotate them weekly!!! Happy Friday

    #1 is my fav - I think it's something about the medallion on the pillow and pictures on walls :-) Whatever combo you decide on, I would include the pom pom throw ... it would make the room look soooo inviting at the end of the day!

    Number 1 would be my choice but I would add a little color to the beige/khaki combos in the one you choose. The whole room is beige, white, with a little brown in there and it seems to all run together. You have such good taste and know how to help us shop for the best price and quality. Thanks!

    Number 3, I always like a little more contrast and I love all the subtle patterns together. More interesting to me.

    I think option #2 looks lite for the summer. Option #1 is m favorite but with the extra covers maybe better for Fall since it is heavier looking. I love changing bedding too. If money wasn’t an issue I could go nuts with choices. Have a great weekend!

    They are all so pretty and crisp/clean looking. BUT, I love #1 with the throw and the pretty tassles!! It gives the bed some nice interest with the soft colors. They are all so pretty though!

    You can't go wrong with any of these combinations, but #2 is my favorite. I like the combination of patterns. Makes me think about changing my bedding, especially since these items are so affordable.

    #1 The other two have too many decorative pillows to deal with at bedtime. Not to say they are not beautiful combos, just ease of making/unmaking the bed as a consideration.

    KariAnne, all of these are beautiful! I love #3! I know that whatever you decide to go with will look so lovely on your bed.

    1 or 3 but I lean towards 3😊. Great bedding ideas. Just in time as I plan to transition our guest room. I can’t recall did you make your headboard?

  14. Image for Jodena Beale Jodena Beale

    My choice is #1, after that #1, then another choice would be #1. Then #3 but only if #1 isnt available. 😃

  15. Image for CathyAnn CathyAnn

    All are stunning choices. My preference is #1 because there are some darker colors that make it pop more, like the tassels.

    1. Image for Sherry Sherry

      Option 2 is my choice. Love that it's a little more simple. For myself I probably wouldn't have quite so many pillows. Even though I usually have several on each of the beds in our house. The one thing I also like to do is to add pillows with a pop of color. But all your choices are great and they all look so cozy! Hope you let us know what you decide!

    It’s so interesting to read the choices! I prefer three. The way the quilt color relates to the rug. I like the second one also but I do not care for the tassel throw. Too fussy. I agree with adding color. You are a color gal. It needs lipstick! 😘

    It's number 3 for me! I love how the whites with their various patterns and textures pop that special warm accent pillow as a focal point well placed to relate to the warmth of the wood nightstands! The combo is beautifully balanced and has timeless style - and so delightfully full of subtle detail - you'll never get bored with the components - as in order to change the look up for the seasons, you need only replace that focal accent pilow for a new representative look and feel! Imagine it with a simple red velvet accent pillow against the predominently white/neutral bedding for the holidays...and so on for other holidays/seasons/whims!

    For me the summer time in Texas calls for LESS IS MORE. Two cushions, no more and no added folded pieces across the bottom and no throws.I only use a light weight spread,the two cushions and no more.All that stuff has to be removed every night and replaced every morning. It makes the room look and feel heavy and hot. I save all that for the winter time.

    I love all the bedding suggestions, I was wondering if you are putting any duvet (insert) in the duvet covers, and if so, do you have any recommendations? Thanks

      Of course! Not sure if you want down or not---but here's a great down alternative (20% off right now)(affiliate): https://urlgeni.us/amazon/H8gK And here's a great down comforter (affiliate): https://urlgeni.us/amazon/_ffr happy day! KariAnne

    Option #3! Beautiful combo of texture while maintaining that clean, fresh look. Do you ever use a duvet without a cover in place of a blanket?

  21. Image for Kymberlee Kymberlee

    I am a coastal southern kind of girl, and to top it off with my age, I would choose the option that is simple, fresh, airy and not heavy like the layered choices. I see layers and start to get hot! My choice would definitely be #1 and then, update to #2 or #3 as the weather cools down with some pops of color to remind me of the seasons and/or holidays.

  22. Image for Diana Diana

    They are all pretty but #2 is my pick. I love a stripe and never tire of it. I also adore chenille but to me that is more fall and winter. The fluffiness is also comfortable.

  23. Image for Linda Hovgaard Linda Hovgaard

    I like option #1 but I think option #3 is my favorite. I love whites and that damask pillow is over the top!

  24. Image for Colleen Colleen

    Hi Karianne, My favorite is #3 but I would use the accent pillow from #1 and definitely use the tasseled throw!! Beautiful!
