Making a Well Styled Bed with Overstock

To say that I am excited about my new bed from Overstock is an understatement. Guys- I’m in LOVE! I mean, look at this cutie!


Meet the Mid Century Platform Bed by Baxton Studio. So good, right?! Let’s talk about this headboard. I went with the beige but it also comes in grey and they’re both so pretty. The fabric is high quality and soft too! I love the clean lines of it and that’s its simple and has a laid back vibe. I want my bedroom to be a place where we feel completely at ease and this bed is making that happen.


With most upholstered beds, the base is upholstered as well. I have two dogs that like to make trouble, if you know what I mean, so I was looking for a bed with a wooden base. But I also wanted an upholstered headboard. And then I found this one: ding, ding, ding! The wood is such a pretty color and makes the bed look high end without feeling too formal. It’s the perfect combo for me.


Now that I have this beautiful new bed, I of course had to play dress up with it! So now, let’s talk about how to simply style your bed to get this casual, yet pulled together look.

Step 1: I use a fitted sheet and a flat sheet. I pull the flat sheet up all the way to the top of the mattress.

Step 2: Lay your pillows on top of the sheet. I do three standard size to sleep with, and two king size on top for looks.


Step 3: I always love a white duvet. It allows you to change up the pillows and blankets whenever you like without having to buy a new duvet cover. I pull mine down about 1/3 of the way to allow space for my pretty throw pillows.

Step 4: Add your pillows! For this look, I used two euro shams 26"x26”, two 22” pillows, and a 14x20 lumbar. I am constantly swapping out my pillows to get a fresh look. Sometimes I use two King shams vs the euro shams. You can use a couple of shams with an extra wide lumbar and forget the rest… there are so many pretty options. This is your chance to show YOUR style and have fun.

Step 5: Add a quilt or a throw to the end of the bed. This final layer is such a pretty finishing touch. It adds texture and a touch of cozy to the look. Plus, my girls love to climb into our bed and snuggle up with my blankets and throws when they play or watch our tv.


That’s it!! Now head to Overstock and check out their beautiful beds, bedding, nightstands, pillows and more for yourself. And then make your bed, people! ;) Happy shopping and styling!
