With the launch of bedding on Spoonflower, we find ourselves dreaming of relaxing retreats. Channel your inner tranquility by creating a soothing design grounded in a soft color palette, or put your own spin on elevating a neutral hue—from warm ivory or flax to cool slate or blue.


Overview

Designs will be previewed on a duvet cover, so think big to help voters see your work; elements within a design will look best when they are at least 12” (31cm). For an added bonus, create a collection around your entry to give shoppers a complete bedding set that evokes serene dreams. See more tips for designing bedding here.

  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
