Mix and match your bedding to create a look that reflects your personal style–it’s easy! Try these five simple steps to use different textures and colors, to achieve a fabulous finished look:
1. Choose your main color
2. Go monochromatic
3. Add neutral accents
4. Use light-colored sheets
5. Finish with a pop of color
Choose Your Main Color
Most people like to stick with neutrals for their biggest piece like a comforter, but don’t be afraid of a little color. I chose pink as my main color here–pink is basically a neutral to me and coordinates with just about anything. The pink comforter and pink shams were my starting point.
Pro Tip: Your main color will be the foundation of your finished mix and match look. Select a color that makes you feel good!
It’s easy to mix and match when you stick with the same color scheme in different textures. I chose shades of pink, orange, and peach. I also love the look of different shades of blues, greens, and yellows.
Pro Tip: Select a maximum of three colors that you want to intermix into your finished look.
Add Neutral Accents

My go-to neutral is usually white, cream, or gray. After I pick my color scheme I usually try to pick covers for my Euro pillows with a different texture (like velvet) that doesn’t detract from my main focal point, but adds extra “oomph” to the bedding. Euro pillows are my absolute favorite on the bed. They are a simple touch that makes a big difference.
Pro Tip: Your neutral color is the perfect time to introduce different textures into your finished mix and match look too!
Use Light-Colored Sheets
When picking my sheets, I usually choose a lighter color. They are easier to wash and they don’t distract from the pink comforter. I chose these peach sheets and I’m absolutely obsessed! I think they add a nice touch to the color scheme.
Pro Tip: Light-colored sheets will blend and highlight the color of your comforter perfectly. *If your comforter is white, do the opposite and select a darker sheet set.
Finish with a Pop of Color
Here’s your chance to add some more personal style. I like to use pretty decorative pillows or a throw blanket that ties everything together. I love the way these pillow covers look with the bright pop of the orange throw blanket. I usually go a little crazy with the decorative pillows, but since I went so bold with the throw blanket I thought adding lighter colored decorative pillows with a funky flair was the perfect touch.
Pro Tip: Make sure you add your personality into the mix. Decorative pillows make this task easy and fun!
