Happy New Year! Do you feel that you have had a chance to recharge your battery after the hustle and bustle of the holidays? We believe that one of the best ways to ring in the new year is by simply relaxing. And what better way to unwind than by spending time in the cozy retreat of your own bedroom?

Nothing is more enjoyable than to take time to decompress at the end of a busy day.  Curling up with beautiful linens in a comfortable bed that you love can erase all forms of stress.  While bedding can endure many years of use, we find that January is the perfect time to freshen things up!

There are many components involved in designing a great bed, but the first step is choosing the right headboard. When selecting a headboard, be sure to consider how you’d like the piece to contribute to the overall scheme of the room.  Should it be high or low?  What is the best finish…upholstered, wood, iron or something completely unexpected?  Do you like four posts, two posts, or draped?  (If using posts, be sure to consider how the bed centers in the room and relates to decorative lighting or ceiling treatments.)  And don’t forget the base…should it be a dust skirt (gathered, pleated or straight), exposed legs or a solid base?  There is no shortage of great options.

The headboard design will help inform your bedding selections. You can keep it simple, or mix patterns and personalized elements. We love the classic details of beautifully appointed linens that look great in any genre of design.

Working with colors, patterns, and textures is a big part of the design process. Whether you prefer a soft neutral or a pop of color, the bedding is essential in making a room feel finished.

And we love to work with  Leontine Linens based in New Orleans for exquisite custom linens.
