The just-so rumpled sheets, the perfectly plump pillows, the A+ color mixing: Is anyone else’s Instagram feed full of the dreamiest beds ever? Before you get too jealous, know that these beds did not wake up like this. (Except for Queen Bey’s. Her bed is obviously perfect at all times.) No, these beds were just styled by folks who know how to turn sleep into chic. Good news: So do we. These bed-making musts are the key to looking as good as all those perfectly filtered faves (#slumbergoals).

Comfort yourself.

First things first: Go for a lush, fluffy comforter that’ll make you want to dive into bed and never get out—but don’t think you have to splurge. The in-house designers at Cstudio Home use the expertise of its parent brand, The Company Store®—which has been crafting high-quality bedding for more than 100 years—to create home goods that are exceptional and affordable. Their comforters have a breathable 500 to 550 down fill power for a nice lofty warmth without the heaviness — and they come in different weights to accommodate different types of sleepers, from light to extra warmth.

Mix and match pillows.

An assortment of chic and comfy cushions adds depth, texture, and color to the bed and imparts that is-it-nap-time-yet coziness. To keep from getting too matchy-matchy, layer on a variety of decorative throw and sham pillows that speak to you. Cstudio Home has a great selection of colors, textures, and sizes that speak to any style, so that you can create one-of-a-kind design.

Set the scene.

A cluttered nightstand is the opposite of relaxing: Pare it down to the essentials. For us, that means a soothing houseplant for fresher air, an analog clock for screen-free sleep, a lamp for reading and journaling, and a small humidifier (which doubles as decor) for easier breathing.

Love your linens.

Bedding is as much room decor as art or paint—get inspired by your space and lay down colored or patterned linens that complement it. We love the versatile, subtle patterns and textures of Cstudio Home sheet sets. Their cotton is single-ply for durability; their percale weaves keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer; and everything is priced for easy-to-attain style. Mix and match (or artfully mismatch) your faves.

Use your head(board).

It’s a nice finishing touch to highlight the bed in some way, even if you don’t have a traditional headboard. From book-based backdrops to stunning textiles, these DIYs are great alternatives to the standard setup.

Cstudio Home offers fantastic bedding—including organic cotton (certified to meet Global Organic Textile Standards) and humanely produced down items that meet the Responsible Down Standard—at prices way lower than other luxury bedding retailers. Forget likes; you’re gonna love your bed.
