From EILEEN FISHER Home, the monochromatic bed

Natural fibers. Elegantly simple tonal and monochromatic designs. Think, EILEEN FISHER Systems Dressing for the bed.

The EILEEN FISHER Home Collection encourages you to have a versatile capsule linen closet, just as you might have a go-to capsule wardrobe. These special pieces are designed for everyday layering — and you can build your collection to put the look together in new ways season after season.

Here are our tips and picks for creating a beautiful monochromatic look with EILEEN FISHER bedding:

1 | THE COLOR STORY

In the mood for cool blues, warm neutrals, soft silvers and grays, or shades of rose and blush? Tonal layers blend together, so that textural details like the shimmer of silk, the rumpled look of sheets, or undulating hand-stitched quilting take center stage. Select the monochromatic look that works for you and evolve your bedding “story” around it.

2 | LUXURIOUS SHEETS

A comfortable bed starts with an exquisite set of sheets. We recommend EILEEN FISHER Washed Linen Bedding or EILEEN FISHER Lustrous Organic-Cotton Sateen Bedding. Select a single color or hues from the same family as the foundation for your look.

Try one color for the flat sheet and pillowcases, then accent with a slightly darker (or lighter) shade for the fitted sheet, duvet cover, and sham.

To get creative, try different components together, so as to change up the look. Two sets of sheets in complementary colors will keep the bed looking fresh and new. The EILEEN FISHER Home Collection is designed to maximize mix-and-match potential and build a luxurious bedscape and linen closet.

3 | TEXTURED TOP LAYERS

Top layers add texture, depth, and dimension to a bedding ensemble, especially one that is built around a single color.

When selecting layers to define the top of the bed, look to the special details of each piece to enhance the ensemble. We love the shimmer and hand-tufted detailing of the EILEEN FISHER Seasonless Silk Comforter, the gauzy texture of the EILEEN FISHER Organic-Cotton Gauzy Throw, and the rumpled look of the EILEEN FISHER Crinkle Organic-Cotton & TENCEL™ Coverlet.   

By including textures of varying scales, you can create soft patterns on the bed.  To achieve this look, we recommend the EILEEN FISHER Waves Washed-Silk Quilt, the EILEEN FISHER Haven Quilt, and the EILEEN FISHER Rippled Organic Cotton Coverlet.

Each piece in the collection has a distinct look, but works beautifully with other EILEEN FISHER bedding pieces in the collection.

4 | TOP WITH PILLOWS

Pillows add design, drama, and of course, comfort to the bed. They provide additional opportunities to play with color, texture, and fabric. Pillowcases are the essentials that you use for comfort, but shams and pillow covers accent the look.

Do you sleep with one or two pillows? Try varying tones to add contrast to your everyday sleep essentials.

For shams, you can replicate the fabric from the quilt or coverlet to amplify the drama; or, for a more subdued look, select shams in the sheeting fabric. They will share texture, but the shams have a flange border to add design detail to the bed.

To add visual energy, vary the size of a pillow arrangement with continental shams. These are larger 26” x 26” squares that will add height and interest to your bedding when placed as a backdrop for your sleep pillows and decorative pillows.

For a pop of color on the bed, try an accent color in a lumbar-size pillow cover. These pillows are smaller than the standard bed pillow making them a great accent for the bed, a reading chair, or a bench in the room.

For shams and pillow covers that are not standard pillow size, you will need pillow inserts.
