Image Line Arrow Key:
- Length: Measure from the top (head) of the mattress while keeping a straight, flat line and pulling the tape measure to the bottom of the mattress.
- Width: Measure across the widest part of the bed from left to right, again creating a line that is straight and flat over the mattress.
- Height/Depth: Measure from the top of your box spring up to any mattress toppers or padding. Round up to the nearest inch. Depth can vary greatly and affects how your fitted sheet pocket will fit for.
For Most Bedspreads, you want it to fall to the floor make sure to add an extra measurement from the top of the bed down to the floor and add that to the total measurement, also remember there are two side that the bed spread needs to fall to.

What are the seasonal colors for summer?
Changing a home to Summer Color can be fun, easy, and simple.
Imagine a beach during the summer with white sands, clear light blue sky, sunshine off the water, with surrounding brightness. There is a specific pattern that will come into picture.
All the imagery felt all are light colors, no deep shades or heavy accents.
This makes it very easy to transform a Home ambiance to a summer time pattern. Now select a color favorite and whisk away the deep radiance into a light spectrum and this will help anyone develop a Home Decor that is Summer color specific. This theory also takes away from some base colors that many people use in a home on a regular bases such as Blacks, Greys, Browns, and Greens.
Start with any color of choice and increase the brightness by fifty-percent and for each room or living space select only 2 or three colors. To accent a summer time room in darker colors use a lighter color picked and use an accent darker shade of the color so that it does not stand out as an eye sore or use very light outlines such as pin-stripes or shadings.
Unless the home canvas is already saturated with furniture of dark woods, modern black fixtures, and heavy dark tiled floors expanding a home into a year round summer time feel is easy.
Great summer time colors are:
Light Greens (Lime, Neon)
Light Blue (Sky Blue, Baltic)
Light purple or light Violet
Pink (Hot, Neon)
