Headboards can easily be transformed into a focal point of a bedroom. If you have enough room on the wall behind your bed, a headboard can be a great way to add color and pattern into your room. Whether it’s a bold, solid colored headboard, or a fun patterned fabric, there are many ways to create a high-impact, attention grabbing bed with just one piece. We’ve grabbed a few of our favorite examples for you to see- take a look!
Solid Colored Headboards:
You don’t always need a pattern to make a statement- try a bold hue for extra impact!
Nail heads are a great addition to a plain headboard- they are available in many finishes and provide visual interest.
Summer is flying by, as usual, and back-to-school will be here before we know it! Whether you or a loved one are heading to college or any other type of school away from home this fall, we’ve got your dorm room essentials covered. From bedding to throws to stylish storage, we can help you make your space away from home comfy and cute. Take a look below at a few of our favorite picks!
As the original inspiration for Tuckered was to provide a good night’s sleep for those heading off to school, this is the perfect dorm room bedding. Their linens are super soft and durable, and the patterns work for both boys and girls.
Bunglo Pillows & Bedding
We love Bunglo for their graphic pillows, but did you know that they recently introduced a bedding line?! Their fun patterns are perfect for giving a dorm room a stylish pop of color.
John Robshaw Bedding
We always consider John Robshaw a dorm room bedding staple. Their cute patterns/colorways and great quality linens are a great choice for your home away from home. No matter which type of bedding you’re into (quilts vs duvets), JR has something for you.
Peacock Alley Husband Pillows
We love Peacock Alley for their amazing linens, but did you know they made husband pillows?!? These are such a great addition to any dorm room, making studying or doing homework in your bed so much more comfortable. Piping colors are available in Aqua, Coral, Green, Linen, Navy, Petal, or White.
Stylish Storage by Pehr
Small space living requires functional storage solutions, and that’s where Pehr comes in. These stylish bins and hampers are perfect for dirty clothes, or even housing books or extra blankets. Available in lots of cute patterns and colors to match any room decor!
Roommates may not have the same temperature needs as you do, so throws are a necessity for when it gets chilly. Kashwere and Lands Down Under are two great throw brands that are extremely soft and comfortable.
Getting everything together to go off to school can be stressful, so we’re here to help with your room decor needs! Come in and see what we have in stock, as well as samples for special orders. Everything in this post can be purchased at Isabella. *Just a heads up* – twin bedding will need to be ordered, as we do not usually stock this size in the shop, so come in soon for delivery in time for school!
“What are you supposed to put at the end of your bed?” This is a question that we get asked a lot in the shop when people are searching for new bedding. The thing is that there’s no one correct thing to put at the end of your bed- it’s all about personal preference! We’ve put together a list of suggestions below for when you’re stuck on what to buy. Let’s take a look at the different options:
Option 1: A folded duvet
Adding a folded duvet to the end of your bed is a great way to another element to your bedding, as well as giving you that extra warmth when you need it!
Option 2: Adding a throw over your folded duvet
This takes option one and bumps it up a notch. Try adding a throw with a contrasting color or pattern for a little extra pizzaz.
Option 3: Neatly fold a coverlet, blanket or throw and place it at the end of your bed
This is perfect for adding extra color in the spring/summer months when you don’t want the added weight of a duvet. Again, don’t be afraid to add some color or pattern here!
Option 4: A loosely thrown throw at the end of your bed
For those of us who like the ‘messy chic’ look (or those of us who don’t feel like neatly folding something 😛 ) this is your option.
Option 5: Throwbeds
We’ve talked about these handy little things before on the blog. We absolutely love the versatility that throwbeds bring to the table. When it comes to your bedding, add a throwbed over your coverlet or duvet, and then take it off and bring it into the living room for movie night. It gives the appearance of a folded duvet when it’s on your bed, but can be used anywhere in your house- aka: the perfect cozy bedding accessory!
We love helping people find the perfect solution to their bedding needs, so if you’re stuck on what to buy or how to tie everything together, come see us!
If you’re feeling dissatisfied with the way your bedroom is looking lately, it may be time for a spruce up. Good news; obtaining a look that you love doesn’t have to break the bank! The solution may be as simple as updating your headboard (and maybe adding a few pillows and some new bedding 😉 ). A uniquely shaped headboard with a fun colored or patterned fabric can really transform your bed to be the focal point of your whole room. At Isabella, we offer custom headboards so that you can get exactly what you want. There are so many options of styles available:
Combine your favorite style with the perfect fabric (that we can help you pick out and order for you!), then choose one of the many finishes of nail heads that are available. A headboard can still look amazing without nail heads, this part is really just personal preference. The possibilities are really endless!
Here are a few examples of headboards we’ve custom made for the shop, as well as for client projects:
With Spring right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your room just in time for the new season! If a custom headboard is something you’d be interested in, don’t hesitate to give us a call or come and visit us at the shop!
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:
