How to Make a Twin Bed Look Less "Dorm Room"?

Good Questions

Q:I'm looking for creative and attractive ways to make - as in pillows, blankets, etc. - a twin bed. Full, queen, and king beds are always so beautifully arranged, but how do you make up a twin to look just as finished and not like it belongs in a dorm room? Posted by Giatta

Editor - We included the photo shown above as an example of an elegantly styled twin bed - it's from Southern Living's Idea House (which we also posted about right here). We think the somewhat formal black and white bedding in classic decor patterns helps.

As always we're curious to hear readers tips on the subject - please add your suggestions and ideas for Giatta to the comments below...
