A few weeks back, my bestie AM, her husband and their kids were in town for the weekend. I decided to throw a 44 person party for them just 3 weeks after moving in. I was in a mad rush to get the ENTIRE 3 bedroom house together before guests arrived.
A serene and aesthetically pleasing master bedroom has always my dream. In addition to a less is more approach as far as decor, in my view, a dream bedroom must have a dream statement bed of course. I knew one place and only one place that has the most beautiful bedding fitting of a statement bed…Pom Pom at Home. I met Pom Pom’s owner Hilde Leiaghat years ago at a trade show. She and her family were showing their collection of beautiful imported linen bedding right next to my own booth that was filled with my decorative pillows and throws. We bonded over long days at several trade shows over the course of a few years. With many chats about business, family, love and life under our belts, Hilde has become a good friend. She and her wonderful husband and business partner Reza and their son Sam are an amazing and inspiring family. In addition to being a great person, I fell in love with Hilde Leiaghat’s elegant classic style and her stunning bedding collection.
So, on decor overload of trying to get a whole house in shape before my bestie and her family arrived a few weeks ago, I knew I needed help in the bedrooms. Yes…even I, who is obsessed with decor and design, need help from time to time on decorating (also my bestie AM is a good resource for late night decor dilemma calls).
Anyhoooo…back to the bedding…so in a bedding panic, I emailed Hilde and begged her to style my master bedroom! Hilde graciously and immediately said yes to designing my master bed and then within a day, Wendy on her team was working with my assistant IS on delivery of the bedding for not just my master but also my guest bedroom (will show that soon…I picked out some lovely pieces for that room)!!! AHHHHHHHHH! OMG!!!!!! WOWZA!!!!!! BINGO!!!!!!!!
So here it is…a glimpse of my beautiful Pom Pom at Home bed. Every morning I wake up in bedding heaven.
The cool thing that Hilde taught me with this bedding design plan is about layering. Here are all of the elements she layered:
LAYERED BEDDING DESIGN – Hilde Style
Layer 1 – Great crisp sheets
Layer 2 – Pillow cases with a bit of detail
Layer 3 – Quilted coverlet or light blanket – solid color
Layer 4 – Duvet cover – subtle print
Layer 5 – Standard shams to match duvet
Layer 6 – Large Euro pillows in a solid color to match color scheme
Layer 7 – Dust ruffle or bed skirt with same detail as sheets or pillow cases
Layer 8 – Bed scarf or light throw at end of bed to add a layer of texture or color
My bedroom is still a work in progress but the my layered bed is DONE DONE. With all of the kooky and sometimes disturbing things going on in our country these days, having a peaceful serene place to rest is a must for me!
Thank you Hilde and Wendy from Pom Pom at Home! You are amazing for helping my bedrooms look picture perfect.
To readers…is it possible to throw a dinner party in my bedroom? What is the protocol on throwing a party just to celebrate a beautiful bed? Hmmm….will have to go to my manners books and check! 🙂
