You’re probably wondering - where are all the matching pillows, shams and sheet sets to go with the Imli Duvet Covers?? Well, it’s a good question. Emily thought long and hard about designing complementary products to sell alongside the covers but decided against it – for now.
Imli duvet covers look best with crisp white sheets. When you think about how many different mattress sizes there are, and how many retailers are selling good quality white sheets, Emily thought; why add another white sheet set to the saturated market? But we get it - not all white sheets are the same. So, below are a couple of Emily’s recommendations for sheets.

Emily’s approach to making a bed look great is pretty simple. Gone are the days of endless layers of accent pillows 4’ deep - with sham after sham, in front of pillow after pillow. The Imli Duvet Covers are the ‘Heroes’ on the bed, and the sheets and accent pillows should play supporting roles.
Here are four simple steps explaining how Emily likes to make a bed:
- Start with crisp white flat and fitted sheets.
- Cover 2 sleeping pillows (one per side) in crisp white pillowcases that match your sheets.
- Layer on top of the sleeping pillows, 2 textured white shams in either Standard, King or Euro size depending on your preference and size of bed (click here for some recommended shams)
- Then add 3-5 smaller accent pillows in front of the sleeping pillows and shams. Sizes of these pillows will vary but are likely going to be either 22”x22” or 20”x20” in the back with a similar sized pillow or a lumbar pillow in front (these are the long rectangular pillows). Go for natural fabrics like mud cloth, cactus silk, linen and cotton for the pillows and don’t be afraid to mix in some different colours and patterns.
