17 Aug Simple Luxury- Bedding Tips
We’re so excited to have recently been featured on North Carolina Design’s blog! Just in case you missed it, we thought we’d share, and elaborate on, some of the main bedding tips & tricks that Erin, the owner of Isabella, touched on in the article.
1) Bedding Staples
These are items such as…
- Quality down pillows
- A nice down comforter
- A great set of sheets
Other options include- cotton blankets for extra warmth, duvet covers, a soft throw, and accent pillows.
2) Washability is key
Most of the brands that we carry (ex. John Robshaw, Matouk, Peacock Alley, Pinecone Hill, etc.) carry products that are machine washable. In fact, the majority of the products, especially from the brands mentioned above, can be washed in your very own home. Who wants to spend their time dry cleaning your bedding when it could look just as nice without the hassle?! Not us.
3) Neutral Main Linens
If you find yourself wanting to change the look of your bedroom every so often, having a primarily neutral bed could save you money in the long run. Pillows and throws are much easier (and more affordable!) to change out when you get tired of your bedding aesthetic. Mixing neutrals- whites, greys, creams and natural linens- is also a great way to add a safe contrast that you’ll be happy with long term.
4) Don’t be afraid to mix & match
Neutral bedding is not a must- if you have a more adventurous style, try layering different colors, textures and patterns. Exploring and using items from different lines is a fun way to personalize your bed; instead of having an all-John Robshaw bed, try mixing it up with some patterned Pine Cone Hill sheets and a Coyuchi coverlet (just as one example). As Erin put it in the article, “This creates a look that’s a little more ‘collected’ and artistic”.

To end the article, Erin commented that “People want a more relaxed, softer look that’s simple and timeless– It makes sense – your bed shouldn’t just be something beautiful to look at. It should be something you can’t wait to get into at the end of the day.” We couldn’t agree more. Thanks again for the feature, NC Design!
