1. Let's start with the foundation, the mattress.
The last layering piece to consider is the bed skirt. You may have a bed that does not require one but if your bed is elevated off the floor at all and doesn't have decorative wood panels, then you need a bed skirt. Most ready-made bed skirts will not be the right length as bed heights vary. Ready-made bed skirts are usually not available in many color/fabric options, so you will be limited in this area as well. I recommend having a custom bed skirt made or making one yourself if you are in the D.I.Y. mood!
My sweet Aunt Janet made the bed skirt below that is on my bed. I chose a cute embroidered polka dot fabric that coordinated with my other bedding pieces. My bed is old and very tall, so I needed a bed skirt with a little extra length.
