This is my guest room. Iím trying to change out bedspreads occasionally. Iím also trying to be creative. Which one do you think looks best?

Iíve ordered an ivory faux fur throw I hope works for the foot of the bed. (I have a grey one, but too much grey so Iíll use it elsewhere.)

Thanks for your opinions!

I am happy if the sheet gets pulled up and the comforter straightened (and left at the foot so I don't have to do it again tonight).

I like all three ways. I think the one with the top layer flat looks the most "clean." I like the first one with the top layer folded so we see the same pattern. The one where you see both the front and back looks most inviting.

Love the neutral design. So relaxing! My favorite one is the top one. But all are pretty.

Okay, someone help me out because all three pictures look like the same bedspread to me! (Maybe bottom right is different?) Is the change just in the way itís folded? If so, I like the look of the top one best, then the bottom left. I like it folded down so itís easier to get in without disturbing the pillows too much.

I like the way you have folded the bedspread in both the top pic and in the bottom left, but in choosing just one I would go with the top pic.

Bedspread

Thanks ,Katie for asking the question. At first I thought I was choosing a bedspread

I like the first one as it gives more depth to the bed clothes. In my house, there would be more pillows. Actually, I think it would look nice with two bigger pillows than your largest ones (to hide the actual sleeping pillows), then two different pop of color medium size ones, then the small ones.

Nice you asked for opinions.
I like the first pic, but that's a lot of grey in that room.
Perhaps a pop of color to match that color in the pic above the bed might make the room look better.

For visual appeal, I like the top one best. If I were a guest and wanted to sit on the bed against the comfy pillows and read (with my shoes off, of course), the bottom right is the one I'd want so the folds wouldn't get in the way.

Visual preference - top
Usual Effort I'm willing to expend - bottom right

Good compromise - bottom left

Since it's a guest room and the bed doesn't get used every day I would go with the top. It has the most luxury hotel look

yet welcoming, but the bottom right appeals most to me. I see it as more grey than beige/greige, and like that the best. The ivory throw sounds lovely.

Bottom left is my favorite but only slightly edges out the top one!

Pretty bedspread. I prefer the bottom left. The middle bottom pillow needs to be on an angle with one of the corners pointing up. Just a little decorator tip.
