How to Dress Your Daybed
Add comfort to an open-backed daybed with bolsters and pillows. This type of daybed looks elegant floated in the center of the room. Make it more inviting to sit on by adding a pair of bolsters that match the daybed upholstery, plus a few large square pillows in a complementary hue.

Layer on supportive and soft pillows, plus a throw. Firm pillows are good for leaning against while reading; soft bed pillows are perfect for a nap — have both on hand, and you’ll be set. And be sure to keep a warm throw blanket within reach for when you start to doze off!
Try a fitted daybed mattress cover plus bolsters. A fitted mattress cover made for a daybed is not much harder to get on and off than a fitted sheet and looks much more put together than a bunch of loose bedding pieces. When it comes time to use the daybed as a bed, pull off the cover and make it up — you can even have it made with sheets under the cover, so all you’ll need to do is add a blanket.
