Which style suits your personality?

By The Inside

It’s no secret that starting the morning with a well-styled bed can set the mood for the whole day. So we asked The Inside’s Creative Director Danielle to share her tips on how to style a bed three different ways, along with her favorite schemes to help bring your vision to life.

THE CLASSICIST

For a more traditional take on pillow styling, create a formal feel with two pairs of square pillows and an accent lumbar.
