And while we're always happy to share our thoughts and ideas on how pure silk can transform your space, sometimes it's nice to hear advice from interior design and décor experts.

Let's take a look at what the design professionals have to say.

Silk Fabric: Luxury, Comfort, and Beauty

Transform Your Bedroom with Silk

Our professional panel unanimously agrees that silk fabric offers numerous benefits for both comfort and aesthetics in the bedroom. Silk fiber is ultra-soft and smooth, making it a perfect choice for bedding and pillowcases. As a hypoallergenic material, silk is also an excellent option for those with sensitive skin or allergies. Additionally, silk's temperature-regulating properties provide a comfortable, more restful sleep experience. Aesthetically, silk's subtle, natural sheen and drape add elegance to any space.

Pete Trentacoste, a seasoned New York-based interior designer and Head of Interior Design for, highlights silk's temperature-regulating properties, ensuring that "it stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter, providing year-round comfort."

Nitya Namya, an experienced interior designer with a passion for creating serene and luxurious bedroom spaces, adds that silk's natural sheen "adds sophistication and class to any home." She emphasizes that silk's ability to drape gracefully allows for the creation of visually lavish spaces, instantly elevating the bedroom's overall ambiance.

Silk: Enhances Any Style Decor

Silk is a versatile fabric that can enhance the look of different design and décor styles without overpowering other elements. Our experts provide valuable insights on how to effectively integrate silk into various bedroom styles, including modern, traditional, and minimalist.

Modern bedrooms: In these spaces, Milly McEwan, Product and Design Manager at RJ Living, suggests using "silk throw pillows or a bedspread in neutral tones to maintain the sleek aesthetic." This allows the beauty of silk to shine through and complement the clean lines of modern furniture.

Traditional settings: The luxurious texture and sheen of silk can perfectly blend with the elaborate details and deep color schemes often associated with traditional bedroom styles.

McEwan says, "Silk curtains or upholstered headboards can enhance the room's richness and complement ornate furniture pieces."

We recommend a set of silk sheets in a rich shade to highlight the depth and beauty of a traditional bedroom. Check out our 22 momme sheet sets in plum and gunmetal.

Minimalist bedrooms: In these spaces, incorporating silk through accent pieces like cushion covers or silk accessories like a simple throw pillow can add a touch of luxury without overwhelming the space.

Mix Colors and Textures to Connote Luxury

When it comes to color palettes and textures, our panel offers a range of suggestions to promote relaxation and luxury in the bedroom. Calming tones such as ivory, champagne, or pastels can create a serene atmosphere, while deep jewel colors like emerald green or sapphire blue can add an air of richness and luxury to any room. Soft, muted colors like pastels, cream, and light gray are also recommended for creating a calming environment, while rich tones like dark green, deep navy, or burgundy can add depth and opulence.

"This year, I'm truly enjoying experimenting with shades of blue and turquoise and I often pair them with a neutral colour like white," said Cristina Chirila, Senior Interior Designer at FCI London. "Blue colour schemes have also been trending a lot lately and I'm obsessed with how inviting and calming they can be, without feeling over the top, which is why I highly recommend them for the bedroom - especially if you're planning to bring in some silk. "

To enhance the tactile experience and visual appeal, our experts advise combining silk with other textures, such as linen or velvet. For example, pairing a silk duvet cover with linen sheets can create a harmonious balance between softness and rustic charm.
