Beautiful Beds: Blue and White Three Ways

I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me want to stay in bed all day lounging more than a rainy day.  Seeing as spring is upon us, the drizzle of April showers won’t be going anywhere soon!  This means, it is time to refresh and re-comfy (yes, I made up that word) our bedrooms for optimal rainy-day snoozing.  I have been loving our new beds and bedding designs that the Nell Hill’s team have been creating on our second floor.  If I had to pick one trend that is slipping into my dreams it is the ever-classic, beautifully timeless combination of Blue and White.

Blue and white is a traditional mix that looks fantastic in any season or room and I especially love this combo in a bedroom setting.  When I think of crisp white sheets and calming blue hues I know I am in for a good night’s sleep.  However, while I like getting a full night of rest I don’t want my bedding to be a snooze! One way to add some excitement to a simple color scheme is with a fun and unexpected pattern.  A double-sided custom duvet adds intrigue with a pop of animal print that can be showcased with a subtle pull-back when making your bed. 

Another way to add *a little spice* to this classic pairing is by adding an unexpected pop of color.  This can easily be done with bedding accessories like pillows or even by adding a rug to your space.  To enhance a recent bed in the shop we brought in a fun paisley print that introduced a deep coral-red hue.  To take it to the next level we added a red striped rug that echoed the stripes found on the blue and white duvet.  Together it creates a cohesive look that is red, white, and beautiful!

With so many fantastic complementary hues to choose from, it is hard to pick a favorite! However, during the spring and summer months I find myself being pulled towards beautiful floral prints full of vibrant and sunny yellow.   It is amazing how a few pillows can completely change the look and feel of a bedroom! Adding a powerful print is a great way to bring out a new side of a classic blue and white combination without sacrificing the simplicity you love.

Follow along with us for more bedding ideas as the warm weather rolls in.  I can’t wait to share all the beautiful designs our bedding team create for our upcoming Summer Open House on April 30 – May 2. Until next time – happy decorating!
