sweet, sweet bedding

If there is one thing I am really passionate about when it comes to decorating, it just might be bedding. Believe it or not, one of the very first things I ever sewed was a duvet. Brian and I were first married and he helped hold the sides so I could sew straight lines... kind of funny to think back to that. I have clearly passed on that love of bedding to all my kids. When we all go to the beach together, they joke about emptying out their suitcases and stealing away all the bedding from the room. Its one of those little things that makes their stay all the more amazing.

I feel like we should have that feeling all the time, however. After working hard all day, what could feel better than a nice shower and crawling into an amazing bed. I think we all deserve that. After all, think of the amount of time in life you spend in your bed.

You know when your favorite sheets are on your bed its like that breadth of fresh air in the room. They are pretty and they feel so wonderful. And if you're anything like me, you have that one sheet still in rotation, the one that crinkles when you crawl into bed and all you can think is "ugh... I have to sleep on this tonight..." I think its time to throw that sheet into the sewing pile and treat yourself right.

When someone comes to the store looking for new bedding my heart almost skips a beat. I jump at the opportunity to show them all the amazing different textiles and simply love helping people come up with the perfect bed for them. It makes me so very happy. To start with Bella Notte or Matteo (Have I gone on enough about Matteo yet? There is a reason all the top designers use only this... it is a.ma.zing. Trust me. Come see for yourself.), then add a couple fun pillows and you're done. I get giddy even just thinking about it. Come on, couldn't you just crawl right into this bed...

A little peek into my own bedroom...

And, yet I am already a little jealous of that bed at the store...

Call us or come visit the Willows for more information on all the amazing bedding we carry!

I think I just fell in love, I turn to my husband and say, "will you by this bedding?" His response, "NO, it looks so uncomfortable." this coming from a guy who sleeps without one stitch of blanket on him at night.
A girl can dream, right?

That bed is amazing! Oh, to walk around in your store would be heavenly! You own bed looks pretty awesome too.

There is nothing like quality linens and bedding. Someday I hope I can afford to at least buy a few pieces of really nice bedding...I'm still on a Target budget. ;) My favorite sheets are the Shabby Chic line for Target. At least those I can afford...for now.

Baby Bedding Sets are what Im looking for now. Your beddings are elegant by the way. Surely, I will want to get one of those once I buy all the stuffs for my baby. Its kinda hard to start a new life with a new family.

On a cruise some years ago - I fell in love with all soft white bedding. Mine is from Ikea and was the softest I could find at the time. I'm ready for a change - now where is my bank card I hid....????

I am in full agreement with you! Sheets and Dishes! Don't know WHY I'm drawn to them! Your bedding is absolutely gorgeous! Both home and store! One of these days (on a trip to California)I'm coming by your store!!! Beautiful!

I am in love with that white gauze ruffle number. Is it a duvet?
