Now, here’s where the real fun starts! Transform your bedroom instantly with a new quilt cover. Remember that the bed is most likely going to be the largest and most eye-catching element in the bedroom, so make it the star with a popping pattern or interesting texture.

Finish off the look with the coordinating European Pillows to give your bed the stylist's touch.


Insider Tip: Classic stripes are a winner any time of the year, and we love the timeless, yet contemporary style of the Montego quilt cover. The harmonious colour palette and relaxed, tranquil feel instantly evoke a modern coastal vibe, but this design can easily make itself at home in any contemporary setting.


STEP 5: Layer It Up


Finally, bring your quilt cover to life with some key decorative cushions and a restful throw draped softly across the bed.


When considering your layers, take note of the colours, textures and patterns in your quilt cover, and introduce layers and decorative accent pieces that complement or contrast to create a look that is uniquely yours.
