Life With Lipstick On

Master Bedroom Before and After with Serena and Lily

     When Serena and Lily reached out to collaborate on a bedding project the timing just couldn’t have been more perfect. Not to mention Serena and Lily is my all time favorite brand. My master bedroom needed some sprucing. As I poured over bedding textures and patterns I fell in love with so many pieces.  The thing I love about Serena and Lily is how their designs flood life and energy into each room but still has a sophisticated, relaxed feel.  I strongly believe a  bedroom is where you shut out the noise of the world.  It’s that intimate space in a home where you put your thoughts to rest and bring peace to your mind. 


Tips for revamping your bedding: 

-Be aware of scale of patterns. Keep a small and larger pattern together.  

-Trust your gut. You know what makes you happy.

-Keep in mind the other people that share this space.  Not too flowery ladies!  Give your men a little bit of a masculine feel in your choices. 

-Stick with a color pallet of three colors or three different shades of one color to not overwhelm. 

-Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box in terms of pattern and texture mixing. 


     I kept things fun and a little unexpected by mixing the Oxford Stripe sheets and the Sanibel Chambray sheets.  I topped the sheets with the fresh white Chambers quilt. The quilt has a subtle blue stitching to keep things feeling light yet also adding a slight texture.

      I love the Chambers pattern and wanted to tie it back in with three large Euro size pillows against the headboard.  Against our dark wood frame the white feels so crisp and ties into the quilt.  Next, I layered the  Two Tone Zip pillows.  The zipper detail on these pillows had me at hello.  This is where I was able to bring in some masculine details and add some subtle sophistication to the light and airy sheets and quilt. I topped off the pillows with the Whitley Embroidered Midnight pillow.

    To add another layer of texture and bring in one more pattern, I added the Avery throw in the Harbor blue tone.  This throw is so luxe!  It adds another rich blue tone and completes the whole bedding just perfectly. 

    I wanted to bring up the lightness on our dark furniture again and found the perfect compliment in the Tinsley table lamps.  The soft bubbled texture adds interest without taking away from the busier bedding.
