Bedroom Bliss: Explore Nell Hill’s Bedding Roundup for Stylish Sleep Sanctuaries 

Having just come back from a textiles market, I’m feeling freshly inspired.  Textiles are a big part of what we do and one of the elements I love most about our industry in general and more specifically, in our shop. We play with textiles in most spaces, and bedding is one department where fabrics get nearly all the glory! 

Bedding is such a fun way to play with patterns and can allow us to make a statement in a relatively small space. Plus, you spend a third of your life in bed – it should be just as fabulous as any other space in your home! I for one want a bed I can dive into (and one that my kiddos can dive into, too, since they do, quite literally!); a bed that’s as visually inviting as it is cozy and comfortable. For me, that means bedding that incorporates serene colors, a little texture, and just enough pattern so that I fall asleep and wake up to something beautiful (besides my loving husband 😉).  

With this freshly inspired feeling and new beds on the shop floor, I thought it was the perfect time to post a bedding roundup! 

The Tranquil Tiger 

We know that a fully customized bedding set isn’t always the best option for everyone, which is why we strive to highlight a few options in the bedding department that feature a combination of ready-made and custom options in their design.   

This stunning bedscape showcases the art of pattern mixing and matching, demonstrating how different textures and prints can harmoniously come together to create a cohesive and visually appealing design. At the heart of this ensemble is the striking blue tiger fabric, Tigris Denim, which serves as the focal point and sets the tone for the entire bedding arrangement. Drawing inspiration from the neutral tones in the hero fabric, we carefully curated additional pillow selections to complement and enhance its beauty. The inclusion of a warm tartan pattern and a camel-toned pinstripe fabric adds depth and sophistication to the overall aesthetic, striking a perfect balance between traditional masculinity and modern elegance.

The subtle nod to tradition and masculinity in this bedscape is a reflection of our appreciation for timeless design elements. As a proud Missouri Tiger, this tiger print fabric holds a special place in my heart, adding a personal touch to this exquisite arrangement. Our ready-made duvet, with its versatile design and warm neutral color palette, provides the perfect backdrop for showcasing the beauty of the accompanying pillows. The neutral Wilton duvet, adorned with a delicate ruffled edge, offers a timeless elegance that complements the boldness of the pillows. Positioned at the foot of the bed, two pillows featuring a captivating Greek key design add an extra layer of visual interest, one adorned with a tape trim for added sophistication. This combination of ready-made and custom elements not only offers flexibility but also ensures that every detail is thoughtfully curated to create a truly exceptional sleeping experience. 

Pretty Pansies All In a Row 

At the heart of this charming bedscape lies a delightful quilt, a new addition to our collection that effortlessly infuses personality and whimsy into any bedroom design. Reminiscent of handblocked patterns, the quilted throw features a playful array of painted flowers in cheerful corals, baby blues, and mustard yellows, meticulously arranged in sweet, neat rows. Crafted from rayon, these quilts offer a sumptuously soft texture that beckons you to snuggle up and enjoy its cozy embrace. With four different patterns to choose from, each quilt brings its own unique charm to your space, adding a fresh, fun, and colorful touch to any room’s decor. 

One of my favorite features of this bedding design is the incorporation of vibrant pink dressmaker details on the pillows, adding a pop of color and whimsy to the design. These bright pink stripes, delicately accenting the edges of the pillows, lend a playful and feminine touch to the overall aesthetic. Against a backdrop of crisp white bedding, details like that inject a dose of personality and charm into the space while maintaining a light and airy ambiance. 

To tie together the various elements of the bed, we carefully selected pillows that complement the colors and patterns found in the quilt. A white pillow with coral tape trim takes center stage at the front, while two 24-inch blue gingham pillows add a touch of classic charm behind it. The coral tape trim serves as a unifying element, mirroring the bold coral stripe in the accompanying fabric and creating visual cohesion throughout the arrangement. With its harmonious blend of colors and textures, this bedscape invites you to embrace the beauty of mixing and matching patterns while maintaining a cohesive and inviting look. 

An Oasis of Neutrals 

This bedscape creates a serene oasis with its soft wash of neutrals, greens, and blues. The hero fabric of the pillow selection, an Asian toile with palm trees, evokes a British colonial vibe through our styling choices, lending a stately elegance to the room. This look is perfect for those who appreciate refined, timeless design elements. 

The foundational elements of white and camel in this bedding design provide a versatile canvas that can mix with a vast array of fabrics. Crisp white pillows anchor the collection, serving as perfect foundational pieces for those who love to experiment with their decor. This way, the remaining pillows can be easily swapped to refresh the look and feel of the space, allowing for endless creative possibilities. 

The duvet cover featured in this design is one of our custom bedding options, a favorite at the shop for its versatility and understated elegance. The camel color and Greek key trim add a touch of refinement without overshadowing the intricate pillow selection. This approach allows you to achieve a designer look without committing to a full pattern on the duvet. In fact, this design flourishes with the simplicity of a classic, clean duvet, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a sophisticated yet adaptable bedroom aesthetic. 

A Design That’s Both Stimulating and Serene 

Resting smartly against the upholstered headboard is a pillow collection inspired by our hero fabric, a showstopping red toile, Easy Tiger in Poppy. This striking fabric, with its intricate details, captivates the eye and adds a touch of timeless elegance to the bedscape. I love that each glance reveals new elements in the pattern, offering endless visual interest. 

The duvet is a reversible two-toned wonder, with the front styled in Easy Tiger Poppy with the back side featuring a light fawn print, Forest Hide. This clever design choice allows for versatility in styling and adds a subtle grounding element to the vibrant red and white palette. I love this palette and often use red, white, and blue in my designs, especially during the Summer months. To me, the mix of the neutral fawn print and light tan and cream colors helps to refine the look, preventing it from feeling overly festive like the 4th of July, and ensures the design remains sophisticated and relevant throughout the year. 

In this bedscape, texture, pattern, and color are played up to create a dynamic and inviting atmosphere. The difference in scale between the prints in the pillow selection, along with the striped pillows that provide much-needed negative space, adds depth and balance to the overall design. The rich combination of elements makes my heart beat a little faster, as I find great joy in the beauty of these fabrics. For those who share my enthusiasm, this fabric is also available in a green and blue colorway, offering even more options to explore. 

This bedding design demonstrates how bold colors and intricate patterns can coexist harmoniously with neutral tones to create a refined, year-round aesthetic. By incorporating these thoughtful design elements, you can transform your bedroom into a space that is both visually stimulating and comfortably serene.
