Orange bedding – twin

Adding orange to a room is a great way to liven it up while giving it a bit of “zing”. It is a color that gets noticed immediately and makes an impact. For a child’s room it can be perfect, since children tend to like bold colors. For an adult’s room, however, you may want to take a more subtle approach. This can be done by choosing a bedspread that is not entirely orange, or by avoiding orange in the rest of the room. You could also simply choose a pale or muted shade of orange, rather than a vibrant one. If you choose this latter option, you can still add touches of bright orange with throw pillows.

I love how retro this one looks:

Dark green bedspread

Why choose a dark green comforter, bedspread or duvet cover as part of your bedding collection? Dark green is a color that can work equally well in a man’s or a woman’s room. So if you want to keep your room from being overly masculine or feminine, it may be a good color compromise. Dark green tends to go well with other dark colors, like dark brown and dark orange, but it can also work very well with white. Always follow the manufacturer’s washing and drying instructions so that your bedspread is more likely to keep its color without fading.

I like this one – kind of masculine, but not too much:

Because it is the color of grass, trees and plants, we associate green with nature and summer. But a dark green fits in nicely in the spectrum of autumn colors as well. Dark orange, rust, brown and certain shades of red are all part of the autumn palette, and they all go well together. If the walls or the carpeting of your bedroom are dark green, you may be temped to get the same shade for your bedding, including your bedspread.

A thinner example – this wouldn’t keep me warm in winter, though:

If you want to have the color of your bedspread match your sheets perfectly, then it would be wise to get it as part of a bedding set, or a “bed in a bag”. Otherwise, a small difference in the shade or in the “warmth” of the color could, in certain cases, look a little odd. If you can’t match the color well enough, you may as well go with a complimentary color for the sheets. Beige, for example, would make a good match for dark green.

This example is a bit more feminine, I think:

Pink animal print bedding

When animal prints are in their natural colors – the ones that can be found in the wild – they lend an exotic flair to a room. But when they are in vibrant colors, they become just plain fun. That is why they are perfect for children’s rooms and teenager’s rooms. Kids are not afraid to decorate their space in bold colors like hot pink, and with fun patterns like zebra stripes and leopard or giraffe spots.

Here’s a model that uses over-sized leopard spots, which I think works very well:

The most popular animal prints usually replicate the patterns and spots found on wild animals of the jungle, but the cow print pattern is popular too. And this doesn’t just apply to bedding. There are plenty of other decorative items that feature animal prints. Rugs, curtains, valances, chair and sofa covers and throw blankets for example. Of course, when it comes to busy patterns, you don’t want to overdo it. If you have animal print wallpaper on the walls, you probably don’t want anything else with a pattern in that room. But if you have a cheetah print lampshade for example, a few throw cushions or even a bedspread with the same pattern can work quite well.

The model below is too over-the-top for me, especially on a big bed:

If you are opting for hot pink bedding, you could pair it up with green accents in the room. It should probably not be a neon green, as that might be too much.
