Tuscan bedding uses rich, silk or satiny type fabrics that are ornate with floral patterns. When looking for this type of bedding one option is to purchase a bedding collection, such as this set from Neiman Marcus called Villa di Como ”, which offers a collection of linens, duvet, pillow shams, bed skirt, bedspread, and decorative pillows. These collections can be found at most department stores or online ranging from thousands of dollars to hundreds depending on the quality and brand you choose to purchase.

Another option besides a bedding collection is to use an assortment and mix-and-match of bedding accessories. This allows you to buy one piece at a time during sales or clearance events and over time put your bed together with an assortment of decorative pillows, duvet, and linens creating a diverse and eclectic design .
