I can’t believe it was the end of July when I wrote the first post of my Build A Better Bed series! That’s when I started the process of creating
a luxurious bed. As I worked with Peacock Alley, I learned that dressing our bed is much like dressing ourselves. We started with the underwear (the sheets) and ended with the accessories. Hopefully you enjoyed the journey and learned a few things along the way. Today I’m happy to show you (with my very unprofessional photography) the bed that I created…
After determining that Peacock Alley products were the luxury linens for me, visited their gorgeous design studio in the Dallas Design District and took care of what’s beneath the sheets, I focused on my bed’s underwear. I chose Peacock Alley’s Lyric collection in white…an amazing crisp 500-thread count Egyptian cotton percale. Pure heaven!
I also chose Marroquin Upholstery to make a custom upholstered headboard. I’ve never worked with such amazing craftsmen. They did a fantastic job on my tufted velvet headboard. It was exactly what I wanted and I think it’s beautiful!
It was important to me to chose linens that I could mix, match and change with the seasons. To follow are links to the choices that I made:
Now I need to remove the ceiling fan above my bed and replace it with a pretty vintage chandelier, determine whether or not to add a backdrop behind the bed (in front of the windows) and replace my old bedside tables. For now…I look forward to bedtime every night and feel like a Princess!
Would you put panels, a curtain or something else behind the bed? I would love to hear your opinion! Please weigh in and I’ll keep you posted on what develops!
