I recently bought new sheets and it stirred something in me that I didn’t know I was missing. For the past year I have been focusing on my living room design, so my bedroom has been grossly neglected. It’s actually a bit depressing to have one part of your home coming together beautifully and another part just utterly dull and uninspiring but so it goes when you only have the budget (and let’s be honest–the attention span) for one room at a time.
To be completely transparent, I only bought new sheets because our old ones had actual holes in them. Yep, that’s how little I’ve been taking care of my bedding and bedroom in general. So it was time for new sheets, clearly, and without really thinking about it I just bought these from Target. WELL, let me tell you, once I made the bed with my new sheets I felt like a new woman. The floral pattern paired with our plain white duvet and vintage Kantha quilt actually looked very cool together and I realized I needed this to give my bedroom life again. It felt nice to have nice bedding so I went ahead and replaced our old duvet and put together a bedding combo I enjoy looking at. The best part? I want to make my bed every day and give my bedroom in general more love because I can finally take pride in it again.

If you want to spice up your bedding, patterned sheets are a great place to start. You can maintain whatever color palette you want, but by adding a small or large-scale pattern your bedding will feel new and exciting. We love a small pinstripe or large-scale windowpane pattern for neutral bedding combos or solid color sheets if you want to bring in pattern with throw pillows or blankets.

Maybe your bedding needs a full makeover and if that’s the case, you can’t go wrong with a duvet and pillow swap. It’s the easiest way to transform the feel of a bedroom and bring new life to your space. Or, you can start small by layering a colorful or patterned quilt or coverlet. Either way, if you need a bedroom refresh these picks will get you there.
