Shopping for luxury bedding can be overwhelming, I know. I am here to help! This month is all about love and cuddling with the ones you love. What better way to celebrate than by adding luxury bedding to your home? Let me help guide you through the bedding selection process, introducing you to some of the brands I love and why I love them.
Bella Notte Linens
Bella Notte Linens is the newest luxury bedding line available on demiryan.com. I have used these products for years in my residential projects. Soft palettes, romantic expression, and comfort are just a few of the reasons why. I love the vintage-inspired styles, each with heirloom quality, and the fact that they are locally crafted. They have beautiful piping and pintucking, ruffles and ruching, and gorgeous lace. And, they are custom dyed to order. I have these sheets in my own home and they are so soft, I feel like I’m sleeping on a cloud every night.
We will add a few of my favorite items from the product line in the next few weeks and will expand the product offerings later this year.
The signature features of Lili Alessandra products that make this particular line stand out for me are the unique mix of fabrics and colors and the array of embroidered techniques. I love that they come in a broad range of luxurious velvets, linens and silks. They have beautiful embellishments and adornments that you rarely see in a bedding line. The aesthetic feel of Lili Alessandra bedding ranges from “old world baroque” to “neoclassical elegance” to “modern naturalistic”. Lili Alessandra products will stop you in your tracks. Most items are machine-washable. To have something of this quality and beauty that you can throw in the washer is amazing.
Pine Cone Hill
Pine Cone Hill is best known for their unexpected patterns and punch-drunk color but they excel in the neutral territory as well. I love the down-to-earth elegance you find in each of their bedding collections. My favorites, the classic and petite ruffle sheet sets, are 400-thread-count and are available in white and ivory. With a small ruffle border on the edges, they are perfect for a layered, feminine bedroom or in a rustic bedroom that needs just a hint of softness.
Started in 1973, Peacock Alley has been a leader in the luxury bedding industry for decades. The “true spirit of Peacock Alley represents clean but indulgent and textural bedding pieces combined with touches of classic chic” to create a place of comfort. From shams with herringbone stitching to bedskirts with scalloped edges, Peacock Alley offers an array of materials, colors, patterns, and styles. As with all the lines we carry, I have carefully selected my favorite Peacock Alley products to feature on demiryan.com making your shopping experience that much easier. You can confidently shop knowing each product on demiryan.com has my stamp of approval.
People always ask, “What’s the difference between a comforter, a duvet, and a duvet cover?” There are many parts that go into a perfectly made bed, and it can get confusing if you don’t know all the pieces to the puzzle.
A comforter is a thick, quilted blanket usually filled with synthetic fiber, which is stitched to secure the filling and keep it evenly distributed. A duvet, often confusingly referred to as a comforter in the United States, is a type of bedding that is a soft flat bag filled with down, feathers, or a synthetic alternative. A duvet is often paired with a removable duvet cover for added color, texture, and pattern as well as to protect the duvet from stains.
These days, comforters are mostly used in children’s rooms, beach homes, and any space that calls for easy to clean bedding. They tend to be less expensive than duvets. Duvets and duvet covers, however, have become increasingly popular in the United States, especially in the luxury bedding market, for their rich, plush appearance and cloud-like comfort.
