The Best Minimalist Bedding for a Serene Bedroom

Keep it simple

Crinkle Velvet Duvet Cover & Shams

West Elm

Florals and paisley prints simply aren't for everyone. When it comes to bedrooms, some of us prefer a clean, minimalist space to unwind in at night. After all, is there anything dreamier than the morning light getting caught up in crisp, clean sheets

Keeping your bedding simple allows you to get more creative with the rest of your room without risking anything clashing—a bonus. You can go all out with your wallpaper, furniture, or art, for example. When it comes to minimalist bedding, focus on the quality, since you're not following any particular trend and will have these pieces for years to come. Below, the minimalist-minded bedding at a variety of price points that we say is up to par.

Back to Basics

Brooklinen Luxe Core Set $129

Classic cotton sheets are an excellent place to start when putting together your bed. This set from Brooklinen includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases, and comes in a variety of colors. Enjoy their 480 thread count and a "slightly luminous finish," too.

Touch of Mint

The Bed Blanket
