We also get so many questions about our bedding. We recently added a large turkish pillow (from here) in the center and it brought everything together.
But the real tip I can give about creating a similar look would be to look for interesting pillowcases or shams. While I love a simple white duvet and white sheets for easy cleaning, adding our navy shams (I found online at Urban Outfitters) added so much interest to our bed. I put them in front of 2 king sized pillows (we use for sleeping) and I love the contrast and interest it added. 99% of the time the pillowcases or shams will have a matching duvet cover or sheet set you can purchase separately, but if it’s just a small pop of pattern you’re after, skip the duvet and opt for the shams instead. Not only will you save so much money, you’ll also save your bed from being too matchy-matchy. The horror.
Here are a few favorite pillowcases and shams to add to your bed right now (most come in sets of 2!) :

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
