When it's the end of a long day and it's dark and cold and rainy out, all I really want to
do is crawl in bed.
Here are my tricks for creating the ultimate cozy bed, using some new PineCone Hill bedding from Annie Selke.
1: Flannel or fleece sheets. Nothing is softer than either of these and they feel so good against your skin on a chilly night.
2 : Pile on the pillows. The more the merrier. I like to use a down or down alternative insert for maximum comfort.
3 : Use texture, and lots of it. Faux fur is always fun, and linen is comfy year round. 4 : Find texture and color in throw blankets. Toss one at the foot of your bed and use for an afternoon nap or just to snuggle up with.
Tip: take a pillow sham or two along shopping with you to find coordinating toss pillows. I matched this faux fur pillow easily by doing just that.
I have a ton of Minted art in my home and have always been happy with their service and products.
If you aren't familiar with Minted, it is a design marketplace featuring fresh, curated art from our community of independent artists around the world. Minted offers 17 exclusively designed frames, from simple profiles made in Italy to reclaimed barn wood, vintage inspired carved, and metal. Art sizes range from 5x7 to 44x60. Choose flat mounted or matted options to take your art to the next level. Minted uses only museum quality, cotton rag archival paper. Prints are sold in limited edition runs of 350 and are available with authorized artist signatures.
Minted's new art styling service, MintedGallery, connects consumers with stylists to help them choose art that's perfect for their space. The program consists of a team of stylists with backgrounds in furniture styling, design, photography, graphic design and illustration. Using their knowledge in composition, color theory and design stylists identify patterns i design elements to pair artworks and style to a space. The end result is a cohesive art collection hand-picked for the customer.
To start off I send the Minted team a photo of the wall in her room.
Then I took a "style quiz"
Savannah picked out her favorites from the recommendations, which I got back within a few days.
A few revisions were made because she already had one piece of art she wanted incorporated.
Once everything was finalized I got a 25% off promo code for choosing the art styling.
Everything was placed in my cart for me, all I had to do was check out!
I just placed my order, so I don't have the finished wall to show you just yet, but I do have some fun photos of the process!
I think also this would make a great gift. You could use the bowl as your "box" and put wine corks a big clear bag tied with fun twine or ribbon. Do the same with the candles, or candles, and deliver with a bottle of wine!
