1 - Colour Palette

The first step is  to decide on your colour palette. The easiest way to do this is to pick out  a piece art that you love, a quilt cover that you plan on using or an accent item such a bedhead or item of furniture. Now you have your main colour,  so it’s time to work with it by adding in 2-3 complimentary colours in the form of accessories and linen.

2 - Texture

To create a space that has warmth, depth and a feeling of cosiness you need texture. Using bed linen that is the same tone (think grey, charcoal and white as a combo) and adding interest to the space by using different textures - imagine pure linen bed sheets and covers, quilted cushions and a knitted throw.


3 - Layering

Layering adds the luxe factor and creates a bed that you will want to run and jump in. Opt for high quality sheets and quilt covers, add a quilted bedspread to the bottom third of the bed and then layer that with a throw rug for a polished sophisticated feeling. When it’s time for your pillow placement it can be overwhelming, personally I like the euro pillowcases to match the quilt cover, the standard pillowcases to match the sheets and then add a couple of accent cushions to finish the look.

4 - Go big

When choosing a quilt and quilt cover it’s important to always go for a size larger than your bed. For example use a king quilt on a queen bed, a super king quilt on a king bed and so forth. It allows the bed linen to drape over the sides of the bed to creates that soft and lovely styled look you have swooned over on instagram!


5 - Accent items

Try using a certain material different ways in the space. For example, you could use brass pendant lights, a brass vase by the bedside and a touch of metallic in your artwork. Another option would be to use timber as the accent, timber frames around your artwork, a timber bench seat at the end of the bed and timber bedside tables. It naturally brings to whole look together and makes the room feel more cohesive and thoughtful.

6 -Add a touch of greenery

Adding greenery to your space will give it the finishing touch and will make it feel inviting and lived in. Flowers by the bed in a beautiful vase, a hanging planter with a cascading plant or a basket with a fiddle leaf in the corner are all great ways to utilise green in your room.

Spring has sprung and Summer is well and truly on it’s way, so what better time than now to give your bed and bedroom a little refresh for the warmer months! Ditch those heavy quilts and darker shades, instead opt for light and bright, whites and pastels.

Using pieces all from Just Bedding I made over my bedroom (above), I kept the bed linen soft neutrals with just a hint of charcoal and added some fun and warmth with artwork. For this look I used: Tyler Silver Quilt Cover, Chambray Granite European Pillowcase, Cornell White Square Cushion, and the Tyler Silver Decorator Cushion.

Just Bedding was founded in 2005 with the mission to provide the largest range of bedding found online and it quickly became one of Australia's favourite online bed linen stores.

Just Bedding’s aim is to provide the best experience for anyone wanting to buy bed linen online, due to their abundance of choice, brands, styles and fair prices.

3 Summer Bed Styling Tips from founder of IN BED Pip Vassett!

 
IN BED
 

In Bed have released a gorgeous range of 200TC Washed Cotton sets and singulars in the most dreamy and soft colour palette - floss, pale blue, sage and cloud. It's the perfect linen range for balmy summer nights... with a perfect lived in and relaxed look just like linen but with the crisp feel of cotton.

We chatted with the super talented and creative founder of In Bed Pip Vassett, about her top tips for summer bed styling!

 

1 -

"For summer I really love to style my bed in soft, pastel colours rather than any colours that are too dark or heavy. I guess to emulate that breezy summer vibe indoors!"

2 -

"I also really like to mix a few complimentary colours together as well rather than just having one block colour for the whole bed, it's a little more fun and I think summer is the time of year to be a little more playful. Our cotton range is great for this as all the pastels work beautifully together so it's really easy to mix and match."

3 -

"I'm not big on heavy layers for summer so I'll often just use an untucked flat sheet as a bed cover, ditching the duvet on those especially hot days."

Boutique bedding with personality by Siesta Home...

 

Introducing NOMAD by Siesta Home

 

Siesta Home is a Melbourne-based boutique-bedding brand created by Australian Winter Olympian Johanna Lyle. The collection is bold, fun and full of life, an invitation to play.

Drawing on influences from her European travels and colourful memories, Siesta Home collections are a postcard from Joh's former life as a snowboarder.

"I remember being the most colourful snowboarder when I was in the 2006 & 2010 Winter Olympics."

Now a mother of 2, Joh pursued her passion for interior styling after retiring from her Olympic career. Her artful eye and her penchant for colour resulted in a 7 month long passion project renovating her Melbourne home. While renovating, Joh's natural gravitation towards colours, patterns and prints led her to start designing her own unique bedding collections, with a plan to inspire people to have fun and experiment with their bedding too.

Siesta Home’s latest collection entitled ‘NOMAD” is inspired by a feeling of wanderlust, being in nature, and starry nights. The natural beauty of all the colours and patterns in the countryside has played its part in the new collection; from the green grass, to the pink and lavender native flowers, grey rock formations, peachy soft sunsets and dusty brown soil that create patterns in the land.

“All these little elements worked together beautifully when designing Nomad, and I hope they spark a feeling of joy in nature and appreciation of its beautiful creations every time they are used.”

 “I have always been drawn to colour and experimenting with mixing and matching different tones. Every design has been carefully chosen to complement each other - which is why some are reversible! The concoction of colour and play on patterns is something that gives Nomad its unique personality.” Says Joh.

The range has a super luxurious feel and will transform your bedrooms look and feel in an instant. We love Joh’s motto that “that the simple act of changing your sheets can bring about a positive and refreshing energy to your bedroom. And who doesn't love fresh sheets?!”

Everything in the collection is made from beautiful, high quality materials including cotton linen, cotton velvet and cotton percale to ensure the best nights sleep as well as longevity.

We love that every item in the range is designed to be mixed and matched - for all seasons and to suit your home's interiors. Siesta Home encourages people to match their moods with their bed sheets, a motto I’m definitely taking on board!

The collection includes reversible duvets, standard and euro pillowcases, plush cushions and throws and a beautiful sunset fitted sheet to compliment the unique colour palette.

Nomad is for anyone who dreams of wandering, and wonders to dream.

IN BED x Triibe have launched their latest collaboration, an exclusive linen range in the beautiful earthy colourway Tobacco, and it is nothing short of dreamy... and can we please talk about the breathtakingly beautiful back drop?!

The worlds most luxurious organic sheets... Introducing Jonquil

Melbourne based luxury, ethical and sustainable bedding brand, Jonquil, has launched their first collection today, 26th July 2017 and it is absolutely beautiful...so do yourself a favour and check it out in all it's loveliness!

Jonquil specialises in the highest achievable quality of certified organic cotton all while maintaining exemplary ethical standards. This brand is paving the way for the bedding industry to bring thoughtfully crafted certified organic luxury to the homewares scene.

The collection of timeless designs will compliment any bedroom scheme and add a touch of luxury to your bedroom setting. Jonquil pieces take pride in the “heirloom” quality of the bedding that would last for a lifetime with appropriate care. 

“We want people to not only have products with high quality material, but also something that’s stylish and provides a sense of luxury,” says Zaman.

The first limited release will come in three collections: the Plissè collection, the Hotel collection and the Signature Crochet collection. Each of the three released collections, represent a story or a personal experience.

The Plissè collection features structure, depth and detail. This design is personal to Zaman as she pays tribute to her mother.

The Hotel collection on the other hand, replicates her experience of sliding into a luxurious bed after spending a few days hiking through the ranges in Nepal and India.

The Signature Crochet collection takes an inspirational spin on the work and depth of calligraphy in Rajasthan India.

“We're becoming a fast-paced society, I'm guilty of it too. And we don't ever just stop, or slow down to appreciate the small things in life. Jonquil designs make you want to slow down and appreciate the detail not just visually, but also by touch. Every pleat, fold and stitch is unique to that one piece,” says Zaman.

Jonquil directly sources its 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton from five Fairtrade certified mills across Kolkata and New Delhi. With these partnerships, Jonquil can provide fair employment for the farmers, sewers and seamstresses that dedicate their lives to the cultivation and creation of Jonquils cotton bed linen.

Sasha Zaman started on the Jonquil journey three years ago. While picking out her sheets to dress her bedroom, she became aware of the poor production practices in the textile industry and high use of chemicals in what she believed to be luxury sheets.

This naturally progressed to Sasha creating a product that embodied everything that she believed luxury bedding should encompass – high quality, ethically made and free from unnecessary harmful toxins. Sasha spent years sourcing for the right farms and people to work with– personally making trips to India to ensure that the entire supply chain from seed to yarn to finished products were certified organic and Fairtrade.

Over 1000 people are supported through Jonquils supply chain. “We are a generation that are educated and socially aware. We should no longer allow large corporations to exploit small communities, workers, the environment and animals. By maintaining high-quality standards for workers and high-quality growing practices for the cotton and textile industry, we all benefit in the present and in the future,” says Zaman.

Jonquil’s products are available online to Australian and New Zealand customers. They seek to go global in the near future.
