Decorating with Quilts
With their unique patterns, warm textures, and superb craftsmanship, it’s not a surprise that so many people love quilts in their homes.
Are you ready for more warmth and style? Pottery Barn suggests placing a pretty, lightweight quilt or coverlet over the flat sheet. “Quilts and coverlets often have casual, colorful, or intricate patterns that visually warm up your room. Quilts and coverlet sets usually include coordinating shams, too, for a finished look with your pillows. In warmer weather, you’ll have the option of sleeping under just the quilt and cover sheet. In colder weather, the quilt will most likely provide added warmth. You can also fold it down to the foot of your bed. Either way, it’s an essential part of how to layer bedding during any season – it’s both practical and beautiful.”
They instantly make your house look warm and cozy and their softness and textures are welcoming. If your décor is neutral, they can be used to add a beautiful pop of color.
When you find a quilt you like, you want to show it off. Quilts can be used as a one-of-a-kind decorative accent. Traditional quilts typically capture country flare with shades of warm reds, blues, and grays while contemporary quilts are designed with bolder colors.
Quilts can also be used to celebrate the season or a holiday. In the fall, choose a quilt that is reminiscent of the changing leaves. They are available in earth tone hues such as amber, ocher, rustic and warm greens.
