Bedrooms can be a tough place to decorate —； especially when it comes to making a beautiful bed. There are just so many options for bedding andso many ways to make your bed! One aspect of bed making that we’；re ready to demystify is the bed pillows. There really aren’；t many rules， but we do think certain arrangement work better than others. See our suggestions below for how to arrange your pillows：

When picking out your pillow arrangement， the size of your headboard is important to consider. You never want your pillows to come up over your headboard， so a lower headboard requires arrangements with a shorterprofile. Likewise， taller headboards most likely will need euro shams or at the very leaststandard shams with a thick flange.
We typically like for pillows to come up two-thirds of theheadboard， leaving one-third of the headboard exposed at the top. You’；ll also want the pillows to stretch the entire length of the bed.
Now， which one do you like best？
Let’s talk about the simplest option. If you’re the type that doesn’t like having a ton of toss pillows to arrange in the morning， go the hotel routemost popular housewarming gifts， and stack four standard pillows horizontally for a sleek， simple arrangement.
We typically think this looks nicest when you have a lower headboard. Our beautiful Isabella Bed has a pretty tall headboard， for instance， so we wouldn’t love this look on this bed. It would look great on our Camden Bed， though， which has a lower profile.
As we mentioned above， if you have a tall headboard， laying pillows horizontally will feel disproportionate. We like pillows stacked vertically on a bed with a tall headboard. The two outer pillows can have standard shams that match the duvet at the end of the bed， and the standard pillows in the back can be simple sheeted pillow cases.
For this arrangement， we’d choose standard shamsin our Lucca Velvet Stitched Bedding with a matching quilt. That sham makes more of a statement than the coordinating shams in the duvet collection， and the stitched flange at the edges means it stands up a bit taller. Use these for a tall bed. We’d also add a simple 12×20 decorative toss pillow for a touch of personality.
This look works for nearly any bed. Choose two euro shams to create height in the back， then add two standard shams in the front. Try shams in different (but complementary) collectionsto balance and add dimension to the arrangement. When we’re mixing bedding collections on a bed， we like to use equal amounts of both collections. Balance is always an important part of mixing and matching， so it’s a good rule of thumb to keep in mind when you’re shopping!
On a bed with a tall headboard like our Isabella， we like using extra tall shams like euros. Euros arealso great for beds that don’t have an upholstered headboard because they’re great for reading and sitting up in bed. For this， we’d simply use two large euro shams and add a toss pillow in the front.
When ordering bedding， it’s only natural to think in terms of pairs. For this kind of arrangement， use two large euro shams and one smaller standard sham and create a symmetrical arrangement. It won’trequire a ton of pillows but fills your entire headboard and feels balanced with the size of the headboard.
As we mentioned above， two euros and two standards make for a timeless bed， but sometimes you just want to add a little more flair. In that case， simply add an accent pillow， and you’re done!
Here’s where things start to get a little more involved. Say you’re game for lots of pillows on your bed， but you still want things to look polished . . . Consider a symmetrical arrangement that includes height， a variety of textures， and even some pattern. We’d choose euro shams， coordinating standard shams in our quilted velvet collection， and two accent pillows.
Precision is so overrated. For the very most decorated bed， we’ll go a little over the top. After all， when you’re talking about pillows， is there such a thing as too much comfort？ Use three euros and three standard shams and arranged them to create dimension and texture. Now this will be a bed you can seriously relax in!
If you can’；t decide where to start， we suggest getting two shams of each size (euro and standard) in coordinating collections and start playing around. Figure out what looks best and you can even try a new arrangement each day. After all， it’；s just a bedroom! Pillows should be fun and not scary.

By nature, fireplaces become the focal point of a room. If, however, your fireplace isn’t a working one, it can be tricky to come up with ways for it to feel intentional and pretty. We came up with three ideas for filling your firebox to you have a proper focal point for the holidays.
