Layering your bed linen will give you an instant cosy look.  Add beautiful cushions and finish off your new look with a throw at the end of your bed.  This bed linen from Pottery Barn is tailored by hand using a traditional dressmaking technique, the ruched blue voile duvet cover and sham are gathered to form gentle puckers, secured with vertical bands and lined for opacity.  Made from pure cotton voile the duvet cover has a hidden button closure.

I love this beautiful COCO MADEMOISELLE watercolour print by Michelle Grayson from Sprout Gallery.  This is an Art Print of Michelle’s original watercolour illustration.  It is printed on 216gsm fine art paper.  The prints are to fit the window of an 8inch x 10 inch matting board and are all signed by Michelle.

Bedroom Rug

Add a beautiful rug to your bedroom by placing your rug with two thirds under your bed, enough so your feet are resting on the rug when you are getting out of bed, if your rug is going over existing carpet, choose a flat pile rug.  This european style bedroom from C Magazine features cream and gray bed dressed in soft white linen bedding with an alcove filled with built-in window seat.

Pretty bedroom vignette

Lastly add a pretty bedside vignette to your bedroom.  Add your favourite books or magazines and a beautiful vase of flowers from the garden with a pretty scented candle.  Enjoy your new bedroom.  Sweet Dreams.
