One thing I know is undeniable: when you make the investment in beautiful bedding, and sleep in a properly made bed, it is truly a life changing experience. It all matters: the mattress, the mattress pad, the pillows, and the bedding. Buy the best you can possibly afford, and I promise it is worth it. We like to make our beds a certain way, here are the basics:
The sheets, pillowcases, and duvet cover should match. The coverlet and shams should be of a different fabric and also should match. We like to use pillows in another decorative fabric, not made of sheeting material. Usually we fold the duvet or a blanket at the foot of the bed. And of course we love to use monograms!
We like to design custom bedding when the budget allows. We like to mix up different companies, so that it does not look like something you could order from a catalog, we like for the combination of materials to be unique and interesting. Here are ten pretty beds:
