Hi, I’m Danielle with Pottery Barn. One of our top questions is how we make our beds so beautiful? Today, we’re sharing our secrets with you so that you can recreate our signature, hotel-inspired Classic bedding at your home. A beautiful bed always starts with comfortable quality basics. Mattress, mattress pad, bed skirt, fitted sheet flat sheet, duvet insert, pillow insert. Our Westin Heavenly Bed Mattress, with its plush pillow top, is the perfect foundation for a beautiful, comfortable bed. For an un-beatable, sink-in feeling, add our luxurious mattress pad. Quick tip: to extend the life of your mattress, turn it every three months. We tag each corner with a month as a friendly reminder. Layer on your desired sheeting. Our sheeting comes in thread counts ranging from 300-700. Choose from Pure Cotton, Organic Cotton and Italian Sateen. We have patterns and details that fit every style and budget. Create hotel corners for a neat, tailored appearance. Fold the bottom tail diagonally across the side of the bed, then tuck the excess sheeting under the mattress. Quick tip: In lieu of ironing, spray bedding with a water bottle to refresh the fabrics.
We added Lavender sprigs for a bit of scent. The colors of our Grand and Classic Stripe Bedding Collections were designed to mix and match. Layer individual pieces from both Collections to create a tailored bed that’s just right for you. We use a duvet, 2 duvet insert, a quilt, 2 Euro shams, 2 sleeping pillows, 2 decorative pillows, 2 standard shams, 1 boudoir pillow. For a smooth, clean look, secure the insert inside the duvet cover. Shake out the duvet to fluff it up and prevent bunching. For year-round comfort, use our Classic down insert. For more loft, use our supreme or luxury fill inserts. Quick tip: to easily fill cases, fold pillows in half before inserting. Fluff each pillow before placing on the bed. Quick tip: for a fuller look, put a small amount of batting in the corners of your Euro shams and fluff them each time you make the bed. Our formula for a beautiful, classic, queen size bed is: 2 euros, 2 standard cases, 2 standard shams, and 1 boudoir pillow. A quilt adds a finished, more tailored look and can be used when needed for extra warmth.
