White bedding is a timeless, classic look, but sometimes it can take a little extra thought to make it the right kind of style that suits your home. A white quilt cover can look bland if you don’t add the right textures, contrasting colours, and patterns to elevate it. Here’s some advice for how to make your white bedding pop.
Experiment with Textured Bedding
If an all-white look is what you are after, you can break it up by choosing a doona cover or quilt cover with a different texture. Linen, waffle, ruffles and other textures can add an extra dimension to the look of your beddings.
You can also use crisp white sheets as your base and change your doona cover or quilt cover seasonally, using different textures each time. A summer quilt with plain linen fabric can be swapped in winter for a herringbone weave. This is a way of evolving your bedroom look seasonally whilst maintaining a crisp white look.
Consider a Patterned Quilt or Doona Cover
If you are after a minimalist look, shop for a quilt or doona cover that features intricate white stitching. It’s a subtle way to add a pattern to your bedding without interrupting the flow of the white. You can find stitching in the pattern of flowers and clouds or choose something minimal, like embroidered wavy lines.
Add Colour to Your White Quilt
White bedding doesn’t always have to be monochromatic or even true white. A pop of colour can add some character to your bedroom and enhance the fresh, white look. You can choose a doona that has a touch of colour mixed in with the white and off-white or cream cover, or alternatively, add a brightly-coloured decorative cushion. These are subtle additions that could save your room from looking too plain.

Choose a Feature Headboard
You can maintain your all-white look while shopping for a headboard that brings the bedding to life. It’s important to consider the theme of your bedding when choosing a headboard and white bedding opens you up to a host of options. An upholstered headboard is a classic look, while a plain white headboard will help add subtle structure to the space. A canopy bed is also a great option and allows you to add sheer white curtains for an added flair.
Experiment with Layering on Your White Bedding
Consider your white bedding a canvas to experiment with. If you have a white super king quilt cover, it could be exciting to play with different cushions and throws to disrupt the all-white setting. It can be as simple or as playful as you like. If you prefer a subtle, clean look, opt for various shades of off-white bedding accessories to create visual contrast.
You can even match pillows and throws for some consistency in the theme of the bedding. Colour pops on top of an all-white quilt cover, and in contrast, the white base can look even fresher.
White bedding is a peaceful, clean look for your bedroom, and it’s ultimately up to you how you would like to present it. The best part about it is that it creates a blank canvas for you to decorate on. You can be as experimental or simple as you like, and it will remain a timeless expression of your style. White doona or quilt covers and sheets withstand any season and will make you feel relaxed and comfortable in your bedroom.
