Guild Master: Old World Styles Reimagined

The weathered, pre-distressed look has been making the rounds for awhile now, and from a glance at the red carpet it’s not going away anytime soon. Whether it’s torn jeans, frayed coats, or scuffed boots, distressed styles bring out a vintage, old-world feel, and homewares are no different. Guild Master is an acclaimed manufacturer in […]

Choosing The Right Bedding Part 3: Thinking Green With Organic Bedding

Two of the most important features to consider when choosing new bedding are what material the bedding is made of and how that material is made. But it’s also important to take into consideration where those materials come from and how they’re processed or treated. After all, “organic,” “fair trade,” and “sustainable” probably aren’t the […]

Multi-Function Modern Bed Frames: Making The Most Of Your Bedroom

My favorite thing about modern design isn’t the simplicity or minimalism, it’s the efficiency.

Modern beds are a great example of this; traditional beds […]

Choosing The Perfect Bedding Part 2: Understanding Thread Count (And Why It Doesn’t Matter As Much As You Think)

Thread  count is probably the most commonly used indicator of quality when it comes to bedding. It’s common knowledge that a higher thread count means better sheets, and often people will buy sheets based on that number alone.

Choosing The Perfect Bedding Part 1: Finding The Right Material

It used to be really easy to find the best bed sheets: all you had to do was look for the ones with the highest thread count (and, let’s be honest, the highest price tag). But a lot has changed in the way sheets are made, and now neither thread count nor price are a […]

Stunning Modern Bed Frames That Are Anything But Ordinary

As popular as modern design has become in other parts of the home, it’s been slow to catch on when it comes to decorating the bedroom.

Six Quick Tips For Making The Most Of A Small Master Bedroom

Platform Beds: A Stylish Alternative To A Mattress And Box Spring

Traditionally, a bed consists of a bed frame, a mattress and box spring, and maybe head and foot boards. But that time-tested definition is starting to change in a fairly significant way as more and more people turn to platform beds instead. These sit lower to the ground and have a more contemporary look and […]

Ornate Antique Beds And Bedroom Sets For An Opulent Old World Style

Much of interior design is modernizing – streamlining shapes and simplifying design to reflect the more casual contemporary lifestyle. But if there’s one space where opulence reigns – and rightly so – it’s the bedroom. A good bedroom set should have comfort and style in spades, and nothing does that quite like an antique design. […]

Unique Modern Platform Beds For Your New Bedroom Set

I was recently in the market for a new bed frame, and I had a very clear, very specific idea of the look I wanted. I went out searching like I was going on a warpath: not going to be talked into anything else by anyone! But once I started looking, I realized there were […]
