The coverlet is a Peacock Alley textured, ivory cotton that blends beautifully with the Reed Family hand-embroidered sheets. However, the star of the show is the pair of monogrammed boudoir pillows that were done at the shop.
Linens have taken a new center-stage in the design arena. No longer committed to basic white sheeting, many designers are “mixing it up” with lots of colors and textures. One of the most well-known designers of our time, Kelly Werstler, recently launched a collection for Sferra Brothers that incorporates her aesthetic into the most important element of bedroom design – linens. I particularly love her scale pillows (while the picture doesn’t do justice to the multi-metallic yumminess) and the diamond motif cashmere throws:
When beginning your design process (whether working alone or with a designer) I find the best start is to flip through magazines (or blogs, of course) and print/tear out anything that grabs your attention.

And, our love of design doesn’t end at the home. We had a FABULOUS time with Ashley and her baubles at the Honeybee Collection trunk show this week. She’s going to be introducing yet another line of rockin’ rocks in November. Because we can’t resist temptation we will certainly have another show before Christmas!
