If you are looking for creative bedding ideas, you may be overwhelmed with all of the different directions you can go. Should you outfit your mattress in bedding that's funky? Or, should you show your artsy side and find a bedding set that reflects it? If you consider yourself a creative person, you should have no problem finding bedding that is similarly creative, and with a few strategic bedding choices, you don't even need to wait until the muse moves you. One of the first decisions you should make regarding your bedding material, however, is whether or not it will fit into the rest of your bedroom's decorative scheme. If it will, your search for creative bedding will be relatively easy. If you want to depart from the general decor scheme of your room and choose bedding that works well on its own, however, you may want to find inspiration. Here are some ideas that will hopefully spark some inspiration and have your bed looking nifty!
One way to get your creative juices flowing is to sit down with a list and brainstorm different theme ideas you can use in choosing creative bedding. You may find yourself drawn to certain decorative elements you used while decorating your room as a whole. For instance, if you rely heavily on artwork and posters from musicians and bands that you really enjoy, perhaps you can extend the musical idea to your bedding. There are hundreds of different bedding materials that come decorated with musical elements: bed sheets and duvets that have musical notation and scales imprinted on them, pillows formed to look like guitars or drum sets, the list goes on. Use the same philosophy for whatever theme you can think of. If you are a fan of cartoons, you are sure to find cartoon themed bedding sets. If you enjoy abstract art or postmodern themes there are thousands of bedding choices for you: just take a walk through any Ikea, and you are sure to find plenty of tastefully done artistic bedding choices. After you have chosen a theme, coming up with creative bedding ideas is just a matter of building off of it and using it as a starting point.
If you are stuck for creative themes to use in your bedding search, consider using the season that you are in as a great starting point. Is winter on its way? Use traditional decoration themes from winter and give them a twist. For instance, many people wear flannel and plaid clothing in the winter time because of its warmth and comfort in cold weather. You can use that as inspiration for your bedding and find bed linens and comforters that utilize plaid patterns, flannel material or both. Carry out this philosophy to the other seasons. Are bright, sunny cotton clothes in pastel colors popular for spring? Use the same line of thinking when picking out new bedding. There are many different decorative approaches to each season, so you'll have plenty to work with.
