How to Design Your Dream Bed...

Let's start from the bottom up..

First a great sheet. (shown is Legna by SDH)

We like to use a natural colored bed skirt in Linen that goes with everything.

Picking a color is hard for us because we have so much to choose from, so we let a customer choose a color and she picked "Cypress" by Bella Notte Linens. A good color for this time of year. (shown here is the Quilted Coverlet in "Cypress.") This is a great base for your bed layers.

Susan shows how to properly fill a duvet. Start with a corner of the insert and carefully guide it into your duvet making sure it reaches the in corners on both sides. Having another person help you is great but you can do it by yourself.

It's a hard sometimes to get the duvet in but practice makes perfect. Susan is now buttoning up the duvet. The button side should go on the bottom.

The Duvet shown in Crocheted Linen is beautiful folded at the end of the bed and shows the details of the duvet.

Now for the Euro pillows! We picked two Euro's that match the duvet.

And added a third Euro in a different fabric, but same color to add depth of color and interest.

Next are the sleeping pillow cases in Satin. Satin holds the dye more intensely creating a deeper color.

Adding a Bolster body pillow in Silk Velvet also adds to your luxurious bed. Why not?

An optional piece would be a Neck Roll pillow in "Celeste."

And of course draped at the bottom of the bed is a Personal Throw blanket in "Sophia." The patch work design really brings al the pieces together.

Ahhh!! Luxury at its best!

Shown at the end of the bed is the "Dawson"cotton knitted throw blanket.

Details of your dream bed all in "Cypress" Bella Notte fabrics.

Our Susan Brown painting is the perfect compliment for this bed.
Let us help you build your bed!

You could also do your bed in this fabulous color; "Ocean."

Or "Spice" is lovely too...

"Pebble" mixes well with all the Bella Notte colors.

This beautiful Quilted Silk Coverlet is from our "Chez Melaine" line of bedding. Very Old Hollywood..

Look what our in-house artist Susan Brown just brought in, lots of new paintings.

Soft pinks..

The new collection...

This is an estate painting we just got in. It would be great over a large sofa or a bed. (57" long x 45" high). Great colors.

Hand painted gold pillows add glamour for all year round. (John Robshaw)

And yes we do carry baby bedding too. Shown here is Annette Tatum baby bumpers in pink paisley and stripes and bold polka dots in blues and oranges. Cute!

Blue stripes for the boys.

Just in! Little Giraffe chenille baby blankets. So soft! Shown from bottom up are "Raspberry, Denim, Baby Blue and White."

Also comes in "Baby Pink."
