Update your bedroom with new curtains and bedding Does your bedroom need an upgrade? Change the look of the room with new curtains and sheets. Here’s how to choose the perfect new linens for your room. When selecting curtains, think about the look you want in the room and then find a fabric that corresponds. Linen and cotton blends are more casual and cheer- ful, while silk and velvet are refined and regal. Next, think about the color and pattern you’d like. You can match your curtains to the color of the wall and use pattern and texture to make them stand out. Alternatively, you could hang a multi-colored pattern and make them a focal point. Bedding You don’t need to match your bed- ding to your curtain, but they should co- ordinate. You can pull a color from the pattern on your curtains or use a contrast- ing colors. If you’d like to use different patterns for your curtains and bedding, stay in the same color palette. When buying your sheets, invest in high-quality, natural fabrics. Egyptian cot- ton is classic and comfortable, while silk feels luxurious and has the added bonus of being gentle on your hair and skin. By changing the linens in your bed- room, you’ll wake up feeling like you’re somewhere new. 74 April - May 2019 Thomasville Scene Curtains
