High-Impact Headboards

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!

Patterned Headboards:

Patterns are always attention grabbing whether they’re bold like this one:

We’re obsessed with Emily Henderson’s upholstered bed with Rebecca Atwood fabric!

Irregular Shapes:

Another way to amplify your bedroom is to add an irregularly shaped headboard to your bed. We especially love these two from John Robshaw!

The End of Your Bed
Comments Off on The End of Your Bed

“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!

Dress Your Bed- Part 2
Comments Off on Dress Your Bed- Part 2

This week’s post will explore the different ways of arranging your bedding. Whether you prefer a duvet cover, quilt, coverlet, blanket, or a combination of these, there are different ways to layer and arrange what you have to be aesthetically pleasing and, most importantly, comfortable.

Before we get started, the article below lays out the differentiation between the different types of bedding (sometimes we all need a refresher!):

Let’s take a look at some of our go-to bedding arrangement options:

First, and probably the option we use the most, is the combination of a folded duvet cover and a coverlet.

Here are some examples:opt1-2

This type of bedding arrangement adds a very nice layering aesthetic to the bed, and makes personalization very easy because of all the different components involved.

A much simpler alternative is to just purchase a nice duvet cover and pull it all the way up over your bed. For added warmth, add a blanket underneath, and for added style, add a throw at the bottom of the bed.

opt3

The same goes for quilts and coverlets- pull your quilt or coverlet up all the way, then add a throw or a blanket at the end for a little extra color and pattern:

Quilts:

You could also add a contrasting fitted/flat sheet to give even more visual appeal to your bedding without adding any extra weight.

Coverlets:

Mix and match these style options to personalize your bedding, then top it off with one of the pillow arrangements from our previous post 🙂
