It’s time to strip off those old sheets and refresh your bedding. But what to replace them with? Kelli Brinkkoeter at Feather Your Nest (3500 Jefferson Street) created two luxurious looks, one that’s more reserved and another that pumps up the romance. Use her suggestions to see what kind of inviting get-away you can create in your own bedroom.

  Pull Together Your Own Look  

Bella Notte, one of Feather Your Nest’s bestselling bedding lines, features American-made products made from low-impact fabrics and non-toxic dyes. In addition, all of Bella Notte's fabrics are prewashed and pre-shrunk, creating easy-care luxury bedding. More than 25 fabric options are available in 18 different colors, which allows for a truly custom bed.

A great way to create a romantic bed (or any bed, for that matter) is to layer, layer, layer. A variety of textures and fabrics will add interest to any bed. 

Provide interest with unique patterns. John Robshaw Textiles are influenced by the designer’s travels in Asia and the materials he’s encountered (batiks in Indonesia, ikats from Thailand, and dyeing and printing techniques in India).  

Color sets the tone in the bedroom. Peach is a great or romance because it’s soft, yet sophisticated. Grey and white is a wonderful combination; over the past few years, grey has become the new neutral and, when mixed with white, looks fresh and modern.
