Home Decorating How to Give Your Winter Whites a Pastel Pop

How to Give Your Winter Whites a Pastel Pop

Now that winter is fully under way (yes, snow and all), we’re celebrating one of our all-time favorite ways to decorate the bedroom: layered whites, with lots of texture and dimension—and the barest hint of color, thanks to a few well-chosen pastels.


We love this approach for a few reasons:  first, you can’t go wrong with white bedding. Ever. It goes with everything, looks crisp and clean, and is restful on the eye—the perfect foundation for a sleep sanctuary. Second, adding in a bit of curated color puts those beloved white pieces front and center, allowing them to pop, in all their wintry glory, against a soothing hue that catches the eye without stealing the show.  And third: it’s easy—as in super easy—and feels sophisticated and elegant without even trying. Does it get much better than that?


We’ve put together three different takes on mixing winter white bedding with a pastel pop, to create three gorgeous bedroom decorating palettes: ballet pink and white, sky blue and white, and dove grey and white. Get the look:
