Thanks for the post about the bedrooms and the furniture. I wish I could see it all more together. I won’t say that your little widgets suck – lol except for me, they don’t give the whole picture.
Yet, what you did must’ve taken you hours and hours.
And it’s free.
I’m also LOVING the hot sales pages. And thank you for creating two more sub pages. It really does help to keep things more organized. I also like the labels that you added to some of the images.
I’ve picked up a few things and it’s fun when a package arrives!
Okay, I saw someone else ask about bed linens, recently.
Sincerely, Your Readers
That’s definitely an amalgam of messages and requests.
I’ve done a lot of bedrooms, but actually, not a lot of bed linens except for custom duvets, bed skirts and shams. Stuff like that. But sheets, the clients usually get because the brands available to me are out of their price-range.
However, these days there are so many wonderful places to get bed linens.
So, per usual, I began my research and as I was doing so, shifted gears a bit.
It all came about after happening upon the charming home furnishings brand, Biscuit Home that I discovered several months ago.
In fact, there were a few Mother’s Day gifts from there.
Biscuit Home is owned by the super-talented designer Bailey McCarthy and the brand is dripping with sophisticated and stylish charm.
And so are her bed linens that seem familiar but with a fresh twist.
I came across this image again after having first seen it a few weeks ago.
I’m feeling in love. Are you too?
Oh, those colors! Those draperies!!!
I really would like to live here. Just a microwave and mini fridge in the closet is all I need!
I KNOW what’s coming…
LAUREL -WHERE IS THE NIGHT TABLE FROM???
AND THE LAMP?
AND THE BED?
AND THE WALLPAPER?
That’s when I realized that I really wanted to
knock myself out and do this little exercise.
The wallpaper is easy. Anyone who’s read my blog for at least a year has seen the oft-mentioned
If you own the paint collection/paint palette collection, I think I used just about every colorway it
comes in for throw pillows on the various boards. And a few pieces of furniture too. And drapes for one board. No, not every board, but probably—-
hold on, I will go and count.
Hang on, I’ll be right back.
If you need to pee, you should have plenty of time…
Yes, nine different boards and one I used it in two different colorways. The blue colorway, is the most popular color on the boards.
I used it for this job I did a few years ago, for a very tiny sunroom in Larchmont. Lovely clients! The little white Chinese Chippendale side chair is by Jonathan Adler and I had it reupholstered in the Chiang Mai Dragon. And there are two bolster pillows for the settee as well, but I took them off for this photo. (garden stool: Pottery Barn kids. Oh my, it was just discontinued!)
OH! And another frequent visitor is the lovely Serena and Lily end table that I adore!
The Bliss Studio Greek Key Pillow is available here.
The Bamboo Relax Chair from Noir Furniture is available at Gilt.
The table lamp is from Jamie Young but is discontinued. However, a similar version is available at Pottery Barn and as of now, is available on sale.
The garden stool is from Wisteria but discontinued.
The clients took a screened in porch and made it suitable to sit in all year round.
Oh man. I did something new for you guys tonight and while I was doing it I didn’t know if it would work. But phew! I think it does.
I had a hunch that I would be able to find everything, in addition to the bed linens.
How do I do this?
Do I possess some magical powers?
Uhhhhh…. no. If I did, I wouldn’t have taken all day to figure this out! haha.
But I do enjoy the hunt.
And, you can do this too!
I explain all of my methods of detective work in a bonus chapter in Laurel’s Rolodex.
But, I found everything! And from some of my favorite sources.
Now, this part IS magic.
If you hover over each object on the board below and then click on it, (when you see the little hand) it will take you to the source.
I was so nervous while I was making this thing I was shvitzing like a pig! haha
But it works fine for me.
Of course, all of the Biscuit Home items are on Biscuit Home. ;]
The only thing I couldn’t locate was the white sham. There’s a blue one and I thought it was a mistake so I color-corrected it.
We did this paper in yellow about three years ago. I don’t have better photos unfortunately. :[
Love this fabulous blue and white beauty. I recognize the wallpaper as Cole and Son’s Palm Jungle.
And I’m 99% sure that the Bed is Lee Industries. I don’t have a good source for that, however.
Below are more beautiful beds, night stands, some lamps, a chandelier or two and one armoire.
I saved these last Wednesday, but if you recall from that post about bedrooms, I did little widgets which some of you loved and some of you, not so much.
These pieces are in random order. And most are very reasonably priced.
My general criteria is that items, if rated, should have four stars or higher.
But in the case of the Anthropologie bed, one person raved and one person whined. The whiner complained about wobbles which 98 times out of 100 is because of the floor.
But I love Anthro. I think it’s a great company. It’s grown a lot in recent years and that means that they’re doing something right.
And to close off, I am leaving you with some of my favorite sources for bed linens.
Boll and Branch – Lovely line of organic cottons. Fabulous endorsement from Mary in the comments.
Brook Linen – This source is new to me, but the reviews are incredible!
Serena and Lily – Yes, we know that one, Laurel. ;] Please don’t forget that they still have lots of gorgeous linens on sale.
Bloomingdales – (it’s like no other store in the world! :] I linked to this amazing down comforter that’s also in the Hot Sales Page)
Pottery Barn – (remember when they used to sell only dishes and stuff like that?)
Wayfair – The really do have everything. (and quite the sale now too!)
Amazon – Just because it’s so durned convenient and you can get sheets, mascara, moisturizer, diapers and a new set of tires all in one fell swoop! I love one-stop shopping!
Do you have a favorite source for linens?
