1) "For me I would say the "perfect bed" would be a King size bed with 3 overstuffed custom box pillows, 2 custom king shams and a rectangular pillow to place in the front (6 decorative pillows total). I would chose a duvet (so comfy!) with a coverlet beneath the duvet for the nights you don't want as heavy of a top on your bed." - Tamara Cunningham

2) "I prefer a duvet over a comforter - it makes it easier to change the look (like for holidays or just for fun) and to clean it (comforters a lot of times has to go to a cleaners because of their bulk)." - Tzeitel Petrzelka

3) "Use a neutral coverlet/duvet and then bring in pops of color with pillows/throw. Also, steam or iron your sheets.  Think about how good it feels to crawl into a nice hotel's bed; those crispy sheets are super smooth. Create that luxury at home!And finally, don't like bedskirts? Have a 'headband' made for your boxspring. It can be out of a fabric that coordinates with the bedroom and nicely slips over the boxspring to make it look much prettier." Erika Barczak
