This beautiful two-sided duvet allows you to get two completely different looks on your bed. The fun floral was our inspiration for this bed because it included so many great colors we could pull from when finding fabrics for pillows. One of the best parts about having a custom bed is getting to add unique trims and finishes to your pillows and duvets. Among our favorites are monograms and tapes.
When you build your bedding around a classic color combination, like blue and white, or black and cream, it will always be in style. This wonderful bed has timeless elements, to be sure. But we added a splash of fun, too, with a mix of pillows.
When your color palette is tight, like ours is on this bed, with just two tones, you get a chance to tell the bed’s story in patterns and textures. Our pillows do this in spades. Custom pillows allow you to add in small but powerful trim details, like micro welts, flanges, ruffles and tapes.
The first layer of this luscious bed is a long-drop ready-made bedspread. We have them in white and natural, and use them a lot on our spring and summer beds. They are a hot seller because they are so striking and versatile, working with just about any pillows and blankets you want to add.
SOFT AND ROMANTIC
Florals are big this season and show no sign of going out of favor. We are crazy about this soft floral fabric and used it as the inspiration for this soft, romantic bed. We adore the sage greens, blush pink and soft blues, a palette of soft spring tones that are ideal for the warmer months.
We often opt for four rows of pillows on our inspiration beds, with big Euro pillows in back, followed by two rows of square pillows, then topped with a lumbar pillow. Here, we wove in our inspiration floral, and popped in two sets of pillows in a sweet pink buffalo check fabric and old fashioned cream ticking. I just want to put on my PJs and curl up on this bed with a good book!
