How to Dress Your Daybed

A daybed is a wonderfully versatile piece of furniture, working equally well as a bed, a sofa, a napping spot or an extra seat. A daybed can also prove to be a bit confusing to dress — do you make it like a bed, get a special daybed cover or just throw a bunch of pillows on it? How to dress your daybed depends on what sort of daybed you have, plus how you typically use it.
Tuck in the bedding and nestle throw pillows on top. Tucking in the bedding completely is a nice compromise between leaving the sheets loose and springing for a fitted mattress cover. Throw pillows and a blanket on top add comfort — just grab a bed pillow from a closet and pull the covers back when you want to use the daybed as a bed.
