LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2012) - If there's one positive about the impeding winter season it is buying new bed linen and snuggling up in a big, soft duvet. If you can't afford to spend the time or money on redecorating your bedroom then don't worry - just by changing your bedding you can get a number of looks for your bedroom, without even picking up a pot of paint!
What are these looks and how can I do it?
If you want your bedroom to be bang on trend, shabby chic is the way to go. To create this look, choose bedding with soft tones, such as white and lilac. Ditsy floral print is a must as are scattered cushions in shades of duck egg blue, powder pink and cream.

Geometric and cube print duvet sets will work best if you're trying to create a Manhattan apartment vibe, as they're ultra modern and sleek. The trick here is not to have an abundance of cushions strewn all over the place, as it will detract from the smart, linear patterns of the bedding.
The country look is such a classic bedroom style. If you're after a nautical sea-side country chic look, think light blue stripes, teal, grey and navy throws and sheets, as these tones will all work incredibly well together. A check print throw is also a key country trend.
What if you want to create something a bit more sensual? If you do, silk and satin are the textiles to go for. Embellishments such as rose detailing and beads make for a statement piece that will ensure your bed is the focal point of your room.
