Isabella is a home furnishings boutique and design studio specializing in fine bedding and bath linens.
Owned and curated by Erin Dougherty, the store is continuously stocked with a hand-picked selection of bedding, lighting, throw pillows, gifts and accessories. Isabella offers a tranquil, inviting atmosphere where you can shop, place custom orders and get professional advice from in-house designers.
Patterned sheets are a great way to add visual appeal to your bedding. We love mixing a patterned sheet with a non-patterned duvet cover or coverlet to add an extra element to the bed, or, if we’re feeling really adventurous, we add patterned sheets with a contrasting patterned coverlet or quilt for a totally unique look. Take a look at some examples below:
Here are few of our favorite patterned sheets:
All of the sheets in this list can be purchased through Isabella- we handle the ordering process, and you don’t have to pay for shipping! For a better look at the sheets, see the list below:
Another market weekend has come and gone! This time our trip was to New York for the NY Now market which features the top designs in gift, home, lifestyle and handmade products. There are products from the big brands that you’re probably familiar with, but also from a lot of amazing brands you’ve never heard of. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites:
Coral & Tusk is launching their fabrics by the yard soon and we can’t wait! We love their geometric patterns & color combos:
As always, there’s lots of beautiful lighting showcased at market. How awesome is this beaded chandelier by Ro Sham Beaux?!
The softest hand towels around by Morihata International:
Love the orange tassels on these boxes!
And there were a lot more beautiful accessories to be found
You can never capture all of the beauty of market in just a few pictures, but we hope this summed it up! Be looking out for new products in the shop soon 🙂
We’re so excited to have recently been featured on North Carolina Design’s blog! Just in case you missed it, we thought we’d share, and elaborate on, some of the main bedding tips & tricks that Erin, the owner of Isabella, touched on in the article.
1) Bedding Staples
These are items such as…
Quality down pillows
A nice down comforter
A great set of sheets
Other options include- cotton blankets for extra warmth, duvet covers, a soft throw, and accent pillows.
2) Washability is key
Most of the brands that we carry (ex. John Robshaw, Matouk, Peacock Alley, Pinecone Hill, etc.) carry products that are machine washable. In fact, the majority of the products, especially from the brands mentioned above, can be washed in your very own home. Who wants to spend their time dry cleaning your bedding when it could look just as nice without the hassle?! Not us.
3) Neutral Main Linens
If you find yourself wanting to change the look of your bedroom every so often, having a primarily neutral bed could save you money in the long run. Pillows and throws are much easier (and more affordable!) to change out when you get tired of your bedding aesthetic. Mixing neutrals- whites, greys, creams and natural linens- is also a great way to add a safe contrast that you’ll be happy with long term.
4) Don’t be afraid to mix & match
Neutral bedding is not a must- if you have a more adventurous style, try layering different colors, textures and patterns. Exploring and using items from different lines is a fun way to personalize your bed; instead of having an all-John Robshaw bed, try mixing it up with some patterned Pine Cone Hill sheets and a Coyuchi coverlet (just as one example). As Erin put it in the article, “This creates a look that’s a little more ‘collected’ and artistic”.
To end the article, Erin commented that “People want a more relaxed, softer look that’s simple and timeless– It makes sense – your bed shouldn’t just be something beautiful to look at. It should be something you can’t wait to get into at the end of the day.” We couldn’t agree more. Thanks again for the feature, NC Design!
This week we’d like to introduce you to one of our new favorite pillow and accessory companies: Bunglo. We’ve been carrying Bunglo for a few months now, but just in case you haven’t heard of them, here’s a little bit of info about the company.
Founded by Shay Spaniola in 2013 and based out of Austin, TX, Bunglo is a company with an awesome mission: to bring good vibrations into the world through their colorful and unique products. Their eclectic patterns are derived from Shay’s travels around the world, as well as by mid-century architecture and nature. Bunglo started out as a pillow collection, but has now evolved into a multi-product company, including pouches, bedding and shower curtains. Here are a few of our favorites!
Their bedding collection would be perfect in an eclectic bedroom. You could also get a solid duvet cover and add pattern with a couple of these cute shams!
These colorful pouches are perfect for all of the little odds and ends that get lost easily in your purse. These and the shower curtains below will be in the shop soon, along with more pillows!
