Choose the Right Headboard for Your Bed
The idea is to have a decorative style line with a lot of harmony. The texture of the headboard will mark this style. For example, it can be rustic wood, following a boho chic or natural trend; if you opt for modern and industrial, add metallic touches and busy textures; On the other hand, if you want something more classic, opt for a plain headboard.
Also, pay attention to the size detail so that it is consistent with the space available in your room. You can complement this with a round mirror above the headboard to give light and space.
The Perfect Bedding
It all depends on your personal taste and preferences. Make sure it matches the overall look of the room. You can choose between plain and patterned; but always look for light tones to bring light and a clean feeling. Avoid strident and exaggerated patterns or designs, they have no style and reduce the perception of space.
If you want your bed to look like a professional’s, decorate it following the color scheme of the whole room. Don’t think of the bed as a stand-alone element, that “nothing is going on…”, professional decorators always look for everything to be in harmony.

Always match the larger pillows with the comforter. You can place them in the back, next to the headboard, and then if you put the daily pillows. Then complement them with other smaller, more decorative pillows.
The number of pillows on the bed is up to you. Now, if you like, you can follow this recommendation of 3 layers: 3 different large pillows, 2 of the same size and color, and a final layer with a smaller pillow.
