Most of the rooms I design have a mix of high and low and this room is no exception, although the balance here weighs much more on the high end, we still managed to utilize a couple big box items as well.When mixing high and low, it is typically easier to find special pieces like the dresser and the sconces to come along with a big price tag so when looking for ways to save, I look for unique looking pieces that are still mass produced like the rug and the side tables. Another way to get a bigger bang for your buck is to look for companies like Brooklinen that cut out the middleman and sell direct to consumer instead of retail. That means they don’t have the cost of distributing product to store locations which translates to a luxury good without being overly expensive. I picked the hard core bundle for Mandy which included 4 pillow cases, a sheet set and a duvet cover. You can mix and match the colors but I got all “cream” colored. I love how it is just a subtle off white shade which feels a little more nuanced and special than your average bright white bedding. You can feel the quality in the soft sheets that I sure wouldn’t have minded curling up in for a nice nap (Especially since Clover hasn’t been quite as kind in the nights as our dream sleeper Archie was. Le Sigh).
Then I loaded up on some decorative throw pillows of different textures and folded a blanket at the foot of the bed, all in the same cream color, for a layered, ‘I want to jump in this bed right now’, feel.
Who else wants to be Mandy’s permanent house guest?!
