Make your bed fun!

Bedrooms do not need to be boring, let your bedding wake you up and get you going. That having been said, I am not recommending a crazy bed-story, I am just advocating the use of either color or pattern!

I think, I have a thing for hand-block print at the moment. This bedding is fun and spunky, I love that. I like the way that this company Saffron Marigold uses pattern without a lot of color. The tan is so chic. http://www.saffronmarigold.com

Elizabeth Allen is an amazing designer, her bedding is so soft. She reproduces vintage fabrics and breathes fresh air into them! Her line is very romantic, soft and relaxed. http://www.elizabethallen.com/catalog

I love this John Robshaw bedding. Below is a bed-story I am putting together for one of my clients. I am using the yellow quilt at the end of the bed, to highlight the yellow on the elephant pillow. If you are a local (Mainer) this bedding is available at Dwellings 207-781-3711.

I want my bedroom to be a relaxing retreat, but I do not want to live in a space devoid of pattern. I have gone very neutral in colors in my bedroom, but I have layered patterns so it is not boring.

What would you like in your bedroom if you were redoing it? What does a new bedroom mean to you? I think there is a lot to think about if you are starting from scratch but, you get a big bang for your buck by just changing out your bedding.

I hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving, I am thankful for all of you.

My next posts are about holiday decorating.

Chic Modern Dorm Room Design

untitled (2)

We are in the midst of dorm room design season. It has been a long time since I lived in a dorm, but I am sending my son off to college next week. I wish I could go back to college!

I was asked to put together a dorm room dream board by Modani (www.modani.com) it was such fun! As you know I am currently in love with wallpaper, so in addition to the items I picked out on Modani, I would do an accent wall with temporary wallpaper.

I like fun graphics like this one I found on Etsy. (Livettes shop on Etsy.)

Maybe if I had a chic dorm room, I would have done better in school?

Here is my dream board, all items can be found at Modani.com , or one of there modern furniture store locations.

College Dorm Room

1. All dorm rooms need a cozy rug, this grey shag rug is fabulous!

2. I love fun patterns and twin extra long bedding is not very exciting so I have added these fun pillows!

3. Meditation a must for any room, but especially for students.

4.  I love this fun storage cabinet! The color is fantastic!!

5. I wish I had a coat rack in my dorm room, bulky coats do not fit in those mini closets.

6. NYC art…I love this because you see something new every time you look at it.

7. A filing cabinet to keep you organized.

8. I love this floor lamp because the height is adjustable.

9, Finally, I love these tufted cubes I would get two for the foot of the bed. They can be used as additional seating or to hold piles of stuff!

What is your dorm room must have? Do you like bright colors or do you like an all white room?

Summer Bedroom

Summer is finally upon us. I love the sun, garden, beach,and sea. In the northeast we need to take advantage of this season, because it is so short. I take the time to change my house over to a summer home.

I start this process with my bedroom. This year I invested ($40) in a cute graphic quilt for the bed; I purchased this at Home Goods. Home Goods is a great place to shop for summer décor, as their buyers tend to go for trendy inexpensive items.

Aside from the quilt a summer rug is a must for me, I like a wool rug most of the year but they are too hot for summer. My wool rugs last longer too, as they are cleaned and stored during the sand and mud season! I love Dash & Albert rugs for summer they are inexpensive and very durable. Ballard Design is another great resource for summer rugs.

I also recommend taking down window treatments for the summer. If you have shades you can leave them up. I replace my chocolate-brown silk curtains with white linen for summer. I love this look it is very light and airy.

I put this idea board together for one of my clients’ this is a clean and simple summer bedroom.

CB SUMMER BEDROOM

  1. Bedding Queen $125- white quilt www.jcp.com
  2. Pillows John Robshaw (price based on size) – Dwellings 207-781-3711
  3. Rug 8×10 $199 www.ballarddesign.com
  4. Linen Curtains $19/panel www.target.com

The rug and pillows are busy, but everything else in the room is white so it works!

White Hot Bedrooms

White bedding is so appealing to me. I do not know why, it could be that it is unobtainable. With two dogs that consider the master to be theirs, I have white linens…that do not stay white. Why must I do this to myself? I do it because to me white equals relaxation, comfort, peace and rest. These are the words that I want to associate with my bedroom!

I have gathered some of my favorite bedding resources and images for you.

Bed is Celia Bedilia Designs…to order email us celiabediliadesigns@gmail.com

Williams-Sonoma Home is a wonderful site

Pottery Barn is a great go to place for white bedding….

Below is one of my favorite rooms…the bed is blue but the bedding is white!

Tween Room: white bedding tones down the fun purple!

House Beautiful: this white bedroom is so chic!!!

Horchow is always a great place to look for classic bedding ideas.

 Another lovely classic Horchow look!

Soft Surroundings has this great burnout look! White and yet it has pattern.
