Let Your Headboard Shine

While I love looking at beautiful bedding during all times of the year, it is especially rewarding during these upcoming colder months! Our second floor is such a delight to behold with all the textiles and colors that grace our beds. However, it is more than the duvets that catch my eye!

I’m taking Spring Cleaning to a new level while I formulate a plan to relocate nearly everything in the room for a completely fresh start. This means new furniture (YAY!), new bedding, and new accessories. Because my loving husband can take only so much talk of duvets and pillow fills and color palettes, I’m sharing my inspiration from the shop here with you, dear reader!

Dorm Décor: Make a Small Space Special

A few weekends ago, I spoke with a lovey mother-daughter duo who were in shopping for some new bedding. The daughter was headed to Kentucky for her freshman year and they were searching for the perfect shade of blue to show off her new school pride. It got me thinking about how bedding can transform a cold, impersonal room and how fun it could be to showcase collegiate looks and dorm room design tips!
