A NEW Look at The Trendy Bed!

The Trendy Bed Get’s a face lift…

 

 

 

The Trendy Bed was started in August, 2008 all because I couldn’t find a BLACK bed skirt for my son’s bed and in these three years it has grown from just bed skirts to a full on-line bedding store.   Never to forgot my original idea you can still get bed skirts in over 20 some colors, fabric choices, custom drop lengths, styles, and designs but now with matching comforters, quilts, duvet covers, and shams for a complete Trendy Bed look.

The Trendy Bed has been with Mayfield Manufacturing from the beginning bringing us our custom sizes, 2-Tone comforters, and matching window treatment.

Also new at The Trendy Bed is some new bedding styles from Royal Plaza Textiles, Royal Plaza Textiles brings us our great Egyptian Cotton bedding along with beautiful Duvet Cover Sets and this fall some beautiful Comforter sets in the new Fall colors.

With the Winter months soon approaching it’s time to get those heavy Down Comforters out.   The Trendy Bed has a great selection of Down and Alternative Down comforters and pillows in Light, Medium, and Heavy weight from Royal Plaza and Downright.

At The Trendy Bed we strive to give our customers a complete shopping experience bringing you new products from some old traditions taught to them by their parents in the skill of weaving America’s favorite terry / candlewick and matelasse bedspreads from Maine Heritage Weavers.

Our newest addition to The Trendy Bed is our partnership with Taylor Linens here in Southern California.   We feel we have found a quality of bedding that will last for years, if not generations with their beautiful Quilts,  Duvet Covers, Shams, Sheets, and Bed Skirts.

White Laura's Quilt

Hope you enjoy the new look of The Trendy Bed along with our new products,  keep coming back as I am always working to bring you new products and new ideas.

Sincerely,

Cathy Campbell

Trendy Bedroom Designs

Create a relaxing and beautiful haven with these trendy bedroom tips;  add color and texture with bedding and window treatments.   Add character with furniture, and light and sparkle with mirrors.

If you have been following The Trendy Home you know I love to bring you pictures of beautiful homes and great decorating ideas that you can incorporate into your own Trendy Home.  Hope you enjoy these new pictures, and some old favorites.

 

A Touch of Class:   I found this one on Better Homes and Gardens,  Architectural relics, such as this dramatic old bar mirror to make a great beautiful headboard.  The oversize scale of the piece works in this room because the mirror reflects so much light, giving the appearance of spaciousness.   White matelasse  linens add interesting texture while allowing the mirror to shine.

 

Add Class with Glass

 

Do you live by the Beach?  This next picture is a beautiful “Beachy” bedroom that is not overdone.   The white beaded boards and navy walls make a beautiful frame for this handsome bedroom inspired by the beach.   Shell artwork and accessories reinforce the theme but it’s not over the top.  Beautiful, elegant, and inviting.    Check out our Black and White Bed in a Bag by Royal’s Hotel Collection to help you achieve the same look as in the picture below.

 

Bliss at the Beach

When Two Bed are better than one!     I love this look, can you tell which one is the Ladies Bed, and which one is the Mens?   Ruffled Shams vs Tailored Shams is a nice little decorating tip to separate the sexes.     Twin beds aligned along the same wall naturally lend themselves to a symmetrical scheme — are always pleasing to the eye.    Underscore the effect by dressing the beds with matching bedding  and treating the wall space above the headboards in the same manner.    Anchor the center of the duo with a singe table for this beautiful look.

When Two are better than One!

 

 

Would love to hear your thoughts on this blog, what did you take away from it and did it inspire you to make any changes in your home?

Thank You and come visit us also at The Trendy Bed,  and remember to make your home:

The Trendy Bed Say’s Thank You!

Taking time to Relax

Where do I start?

This is not the normal The Trendy Home blog, if you have noticed I haven’t been around writing my blogs that I used to LOVE to do much this year!

On January 27 I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer – Thank You Lord it was only Stage #1 but if you were ever told you have  “CANCER”  at first you think someone just signed your death notice.    It’s all you think about, 24/7.

On February 7th I had my surgery at Hoag Hospital here in Southern California,  complete hysterectomy along with the Lymph nodes  – they wanted to be sure they got it all and I was happy to oblige.

I’m so happy to say I don’t need Chemo or Radiation, all I need is to make sure I get my blood work every three months for the next 2 years, and every 6 months for the following 3 years until I hit that magical “5″ years.

I have been so blessed and I know it;   has there been dark days, sure I’m human but I also know they will pass.   I have seen the power of friends,  family and staying positive.

The Campbell's

My darling Husband.

I know it wasn’t easy on my Husband, his  Parents, and Siblings are all gone and the thought of losing his wife wasn’t something he wanted to even consider!

 

The YaYa Girls

The Ya Ya Girls

Us Girls just can’t make it in this world without our Best Friends,  these are my best friends:  Michelle, Laura, and Pamela.  Michelle and I were pregnant together 26 years ago,  Laura and I have something in common – Cancer.  She’s fighting her battle as well  and I’m happy to say things are looking up for her too;  and we have so much in common you would think we have been friends for life.   Then there’s Pamela – we have been neighbors for over 15 years now and there was even a move in there,  and they followed us and they are still the best neighbors, family by choice, and friends the Campbell family could ask for.

My Family

Matthew, Lindsey, and Michael

One of the hardest things I had to do was tell my “boy’s” that their Mother had Cancer!   And I add “HAD” cancer!   I’m looking forward to playing with my grandchildren and spooling them rotten and then giving them back!

My life today!    What’s it like living without your body’s thermostat?    I’m always hot or Cold,   NO in between!    Window’s open, ceiling fan on HIGH during the night and most of the time my dear husband is under the covers so tight and I’m on top with nothing on!    It reminds me of the musical  “Menopause“   if you haven’t seen it, it’s a good fun night out with the girls or even the husband.  (Mine laughed so hard!)   But it’s so TRUE!

So, I wanted to say  HI to my readers and I am feeling much better and have gained most of my strength back and ready to write some blogs.

The Trendy Bed has added some new products lately so look forward to some product updates.

There is a good life even after being told you have Cancer – keep it positive and lean on your friends and family, they just might surprise you!

Thank you and much LOVE!

Cathy

xoxo

Spring Up Your Home – Spring Decorating

spring home

Spring is here, now it’s time to bring it into your home, with color.   You can create a casual and colorful living room that sings “Spring”  by adding colorful vases, fresh flowers, spunky colorful pillows,  throws and accessories.

Fruit and flowers

Adding fresh flowers to any room is a great way to  “Spring” up your home.    Kumquats in a vase of water make a unique base for stems of yellow tulips or any other spring flower, what a eye catching center piece this vase would make on any table.

Spring Bathroom mirror

I saw this and to be honest with you, it’s a little too much for me BUT I loved the look of the mirror.  This look is done with decoupage,  purchase a flat frame mirror and cover the frame with your fabric of choice using decoupage.  After four or five coats the surface will be smooth.   Brighten up any bathroom with a mirror like this.

Bright room wit natural light

Let the sun shine in and paint your walls yellow, in this breakfast nook they pulled yellow, white, and blue all together in this beautiful look.   Adding blue and white plates on the wall, blue candles on a white candlestick, and white hanging light fixture.   White baseboards and finished carpentry around the window finishes off this beautiful room.

Sunroom

Adding spring to this sun room is as easy as painting a floral motif on a jute rug,  adding some garden-inspired pillows, and topping a table with a simple white runner and fresh cut flowers.

Starcase

As you can see yellow is the “in” color this year, it’s all you see in all the decorating magazines and it comes in so many shades, that’s the beauty of yellow.

Guest room with Amenties

My blogs wouldn’t be complete without adding some Trendy Bed rooms into the mix, and I found this beautiful guest bedroom, in yellow of course.  Like the  picture of the living room above,  they used the same colors;  yellow, white and green but have a completely different look.

Plum walls Bedroom

Yellow may be the IN color, but not every room in your home needs to be yellow.    Revamp your bedroom for Spring by adding a punch to your headboard by wrapping it with a yard of mod floral fabric.   Tired of those boring white sheets,  Spring is a great time to put new, colored sheets on your bed.  At The Trendy Bed we have a great selection of sheet sets  in 300  to 1500 thread count  100%  Egyptian Cotton Sheets.

Let the sun shine in, bring Spring into your home and your heart.

Trendy Super Spring Cleaning

woman-spring-cleaning-lg

A few specific tasks,  done only once or twice a year will freshen up your entire home, try these time saving tips to your own cleaning routine.

Do you clean your home every day?

If you don’t,  they say you really should….   I’m not saying “full cleaning”, but they say if you follow some of these tips when it comes to “spring cleaning” it’s only limited to t

Daily preventive tasks:      Keep your kitchen organized and clean,  wash dish’s daily or put them in the dishwasher if you have one, wipe down counters / surfaces after each meal with a damp rag.    Pick up the mess at the end of day;  newspapers on the sofa, coffee table,  TV clickers all around the room, empty drink glasses sitting around,  dessert dish’s sitting about.  Take 5 minuets and pick up the dirty dishes and put them in the sink to wash with the breakfast dishes,  pick up the newspapers,  pick up the babies toys,  and put the TV controllers at a designated location every night.  You’ll be surprised in time others will pick up on these tasks.

Make your bed each morning, I know some people say they don’t have time.  Have you ever timed how long it really takes to make a bed?   Really, I timed it and it took me about 54 seconds to pull up the sheets, place 2 shams on the bed, and 5 throw pillows,  that’s even with walking around a King size bed.   Making your bed daily really has both physical and mental positive effects to your day, and it teaches your children to keep “their” space clean.

Teaching your child good habits can be really easy,  at The Trendy Bed we carry  Inseparable sheets in 100% cotton, cotton blend, and flannel;  check them out at The Trendy Bed.com.

Bathrooms:  Try to keep your bathroom organized,  there should be a place for everything, hair brush’s in the drawer, hair dryer in drawer or rack, curling iron in drawer or holder.  Here is a picture of the holder/rack my husband made for me, I love it.   Home Depot little wooden table top, he cut it and drilled the holes in different sizes to fit 3 curling irons and 1 hair dryer.

Our Trendy Home 050

If you keep up with the daily touch-ups,  your weekly cleaning can really get done in a few hours, and your spring cleaning is really just that!

Windows, Doors, Walls :  Wash your windows on a cloudy day, when you wash them on a hot sunny day the cleaning solution will dry too fast and you’ll have streaks.   Try this washing solution:   1/2 cup of sudsy ammonia,  one pint of rubbing alcohol, one teaspoon dishwashing liquid, and one gallon of water.     Tip:  Other than washing on a cloudy day,  to determine whether streaks are on the inside or outside, wipe with vertical strokes on one side of the window, horizontal on the other.

Scrub and vacuum sliding glass door tracks.   You’ll appreciate doing this once the outdoor entertaining season gets into full swing.   Tip:  Use an OLD toothbrush to loosen debris in the track, then using your vacuum hose to remove it debris and the finish with a wet rage or sponge.

Wipe down your baseboards, door frames and walls.     These can get overlooked during the year, but once a year give them some T.L.C.    Wash them with a sponge and a squirt of dishwashing liquid mixed in a bucket of warm water.   Tip:  Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for spot-cleaning, good for those big boys, and little men fingerprints, scuffs, and even crayon marks I’ve been told.

Floors:  Deep clean your carpet and rugs.  Should be done every 12 to 18 months,   granted depends on the number of people living in your home, if you have pets or not, and where is your carpeting.   Mine is only in the bedrooms and the “formal” rooms in the home,  so once a year is perfect for me.     This is where you can have them professionally done, rent them from your local grocery store for a day or two, or invest in your own if you have pets.

This is the time to move the furniture and clean under and behind…   Tip:  If your range has a drawer, remove the drawer and vacuum underneath.     If you can slide out your appliances,  now’s a good time to clean under and behind those also.

Furniture, Fabric, Fixtures: If you are having your carpets professionally done, now’s a good time to also have them clean your upholstery.    Restore smooth leather with an upholstery/ leather cleaner and conditioner.

Window Treatment:   In all likelihood, your curtains and draperies aren’t dirty enough to launder.  To clean,  go over them thoroughly with the upholstery attachment on your vacuum.  I do this at home about every 3 months because I love to have my windows and doors open, helps to keep them looking fresh.  Tip:  To remove dust from sheer curtains, put them in the dryer on LOW with a fabric softener sheet, clean and smelling good also.

Dust your light fixtures, ceiling fans, and lightbulbs.   Using one of those microfiber or lint-free cloth to dust fixtures and bulbs you can reach.   For the ceiling fans you can skip the ladder and use an extendable duster, good to wipe those high light bulbs also.

Spring cleaning is one of those hate it and love it tasks…   Hate doing all the work, but we LOVE it when it’s all done.

Nothing better than a nice, clean home to make your home,  “The Trendy Home”…
