Try a little luxury with a beautiful bed
Investing in beautiful bedding can seem like a luxury. We are happy to fix up all the public spaces in our house but not so much our personal oases.
Maybe it's time to consider pampering yourself a bit by sleeping in a gorgeously outfitted bed. Bright & beautiful: When you look at a spring garden, it's often a combination of brilliant, showy colors and soft pastels.
This bedding collection captures that very spirit with the oversized hound's-tooth check in a sassy apple green and the velvet green lumbar, with its playful pompom trim. Mixed together, these elements showcase the joy of the season, but with a sophisticated flair.
As the weather warms up, you want to peel off the weight of your winter bedding - but not the interesting layers. Keep your duvet and light blankets on your bed, just lighten them up.
One of the best parts about having a custom bed is getting to add unique trims and finishes to your pillows and duvets. Among our favorites are monograms and tapes.
Classic blue: When you build your bedding around a classic color combination, like blue and white, or black and cream, it will always be in style. This wonderful bed has timeless elements, to be sure. But we added a splash of fun, too, with a mix of pillows.
When your color palette is tight, like this bed with just two tones, you get a chance to tell the bed's story in patterns and textures. The pillows do this in spades. Custom pillows allow you to add in small but powerful trim details, like micro welts, flanges, ruffles and tapes.
The first layer of this luscious bed is a long-drop, ready-made bedspread. They are so striking and versatile, working with just about any pillows and blankets you want to add.
Soft and romantic: Florals are big this season and show no sign of going out of favor. The soft floral fabric inspired this soft, romantic bed with its sage greens, blush pink and soft blues - a palette of soft spring tones that are ideal for the warmer months.
Four rows of pillows set the tone on an inspiration beds, with big Euro pillows in back, followed by two rows of square pillows, then topped with a lumbar pillow.
Here, we wove in our inspiration floral, and popped in two sets of pillows in a sweet pink buffalo check fabric and old fashioned cream ticking.
I just want to put on my PJs and curl up on this bed with a good book!This article was published in The Tribune News Service.
