Build A Better Bed ~ Part 1
I recently experienced a “life change” that had me shopping for a queen-sized bed just for me! Buying a mattress is one of my least favorite things to purchase, so I went to Weir’s, took the advice of the salesperson on which would be the best fit and value for me and got out relatively quick… Now? On to the fun stuff! Dressing the bed!!
About 12 years ago I bought my favorite bedding from Peacock Alley for a guest bedroom. It has proven to be timeless and seems to get more soft and luxurious with age.
I chose a neutral color pallet and subtle pattern so that I could display one of my favorite possessions…a tatted coverlet that belonged to my grandmother…at the foot of the bed. I love the way the patterns and textures work. Peacock Alley linens are perfect for working together with that special blanket or throw you purchased on a special vacation or your own family heirloom. The patterns used in their line are specifically chosen to work well with others so that you can change the look of the bed with the seasons… or your mood.
At the same time I put together this bed, I also had custom bedding made for my own bed. That custom-made bedding was sold at a garage sale several years ago and, although I spent a fortune on fabrics and labor, didn’t hold up well. So, now that it’s time to “make another bed and lie in it” it’s a no-brainer to seek the help of Peacock Alley for luxurious linens that will last.
I was so excited to learn that Peacock Alley recently opened a design studio in the Dallas Design District. It’s absolutely gorgeous and has all of the components of what you need to build a dream bed. Next week I’ll show you more of their new digs and tell you about their “naked bed”. Don’t worry…I’ll keep it G-rated…
To get this “bed building” series started, I’m giving away Peacock Alley’s resort throw…a $95 value. These are so dreamy! They almost melt in your hands…simply irresistible! Here’s what you need to do to win!
First, “Like” Peacock Alley’s facebook page. Then, “Like” The Hidden List facebook page (you may have already done this, but I’ll be checking both pages to confirm the winner). Finally, leave a comment about what you look for when choosing bed linens. Do you simply look for color…pattern…design? Or do you search for quality fabrics that feel the best to the touch? Do you have a special heirloom that you build your bed around? Let us know…
You’ll have all week to leave your comments, we’ll chose randomly and I’ll announce the winner next week in Part 2, as we explore the Peacock Alley showroom and I share my experience there.
