A Trendy Retreat!

Comfort and Function

Comfort and Function

To make your bedroom a “Trendy” retreat, identify your essentials.

If you have built-in closets,  can you do without a dresser to make room for a set of comfy chairs or a chaise?

Let the way you want to use the room identify your essentials.

Again, I have found some great Master Bedroom pictures courtesy of Better Homes and Garden’s Web site and I love sharing them on my blog.

For my retreat to be complete,  one of my essentials is great bedding.  I love my Egyptian Cotton Bamboo Sheets for the California Summer nights and my 1200 thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets for the cooler nights.

Indulge in Luxurious Bedding..

Luxurious bedding

What is it that makes luxury hotel beds so welcoming?   The Plump Pillows, the cloud like duvets, or the crisp sheets?

Bedding doesn’t have to be expensive to be luxurious, at The Trendy Bed this is our belief.   When buying bedding remember that 100% cotton sheets soften with washing and let the body breath; cotton-polyester blends wrinkle less but they are not as soft and breathable.

For top-of-the-line sheets that are durable, mostly lint-free, and luxuriously soft, look for Egyptian, or Supima cotton.  The new Bamboo Cotton sheets also have a soft texture, breathable, and Eco friendly.

Thread counts – the number of threads per square inch indicate quality: 180-320 is the common range, with 200 to 250 typical for a middle-of-the-road sheet.  Luxury sheets may have thread counts of 300 and higher.

At The Trendy Bed we carry a full line of Cotton Blend,  100% Cotton, 100% Egyptian Cotton, Superior Egyptian Percale Cotton, and the new Bamboo Cotton sheets, Comforters, Duvets,  Bed Skirts,  Pillow Shams,  Pillow Cases, and Window Treatment is selected fabrics.

Trendy Bed Rooms….

Create a Master Suite

Create a Master Suite

I Came across this picture on the Better Homes and Garden Web Site and I fell in LOVE!!   The only thing this room needs is a fireplace and I would feel like I’m in Camelot…  Where’s my King??

The article was about “Creating a Master Suite”, using color, fabrics, textures, and window treatments to make your own statement,  and carrying that statement into your master bathroom to make a complete suite.. 

Granted, we all can’t have suite like this but we can have fun with color, fabrics, and textures to create our own little Camelot.

Trendy Guests Room Design Tips!

To help make overnight guests feel welcome in your home, provide the amenities that will allow them to make the space their own during their stay. 

Clear space in the closet for them to hang up their clothes,  good lamps by the bed for reading,  a luggage rack for their luggage will help them settle in, and feel pampered.

Clear space for their toiletries in the guest bath, or make space in the bedroom on a vanity or dresser top.

If your guest room doubles as a sitting room or office, choose a comfortable love seat or chair-and-a-half that pulls our to a twin-size bed like the one in the picture above. 

Test the mattress and add a mattress pad if necessary, and provide good sheets for your guest. 

At The Trendy Bed we have 100% cotton mattress pads in all sizes and make your guest feel pampered with 100% Egyptian Cotton bedding.

Fairy Tales are still alive and very much part of our children’s lives, even despite the modern times we live in.  Every little girl dreams about her kingdom,  being the lovey princess and waiting for her prince Charming.

Canopy beds actually came from the olden castle days, they were used to keep varmints off the sleeping person during the dark nights, and they also helped to keep the sleeping person warm.   

Granted, your little princess doesn’t need to know where and why they were used, just that they helped to keep the Princess warm and feel secure in her chamber.

At The Trendy Bed we have white and ecru “mock” eyelet ensembles for your little princess and canopy tops are also available by special order.

4.  Establishing A Pattern:    Even though patterns are being constantly updated and reinvented, some ways to keep them fresh include combining classic and contemporary styles in one piece; utilizing tiny, country patterns that include calico or patchwork; and try distinctive materials, like foil, or embellishments that cluster and layer upon each other.    I personally like this picture that I used in an earlier blog, it shows the difference in materials, fabrics and patters.
