A well dressed bed

Taking inspiration from the stylish chic boutique hotel suites, divine bedlinen and well chosen accessories not only bring a feeling of luxury to the bedroom but a sense of opulence and glamour. Layering high thread count linens with sumptuous textures such as silk, cashmere and velvet create a bedroom that is a haven of pampering and comfort. Here are a few of my favourites!

Gorgeous, inviting bedlinen. My personal choice is white Egyptian cotton . So, at this time of year the duvets are bulky and feather-filled topped with a white cotton textured quilt for warmth.

The rooms look so warm and inviting. There is nothing I love more than neutral palettes, fabulous sheets, down comforters and loads of pillows...perfect examples here!!

a beautifully attired bed...so inspirational. thank you.

Gorgeous, any or all of the rooms. We did have white Egyptian cotton bedding, from John Lewis. It crunches when you touch it. However since the advent of the pooch we now cover the bed as often as possible, less paw prints that way. There is nothing quite like a fluffy duvet and a calm beautiful room to raise the spirits. The nearest White Co to us is in Chester, it is sublime.

LLH Designs said...

RIght up my alley! I could almost make a career out of dressing beds because I love it so much! I have a bit of a formula...always layered and a mix of textures (along with a mix of different brands). So fun!

I particularly love the "wing headboard" - this would make a day in bed reading so luxurious.

Wishing you a great week
