Living With Great Style

The Layered Bed



With 2015 right around the corner, it’s time to focus on sprucing up your house. There is nothing I love more than creating a cozy bed for cold winter days. Lately it’s been especially chilly. Now you may think I’d be the type of gal to have an all white bed, but that’s not the case. When it comes to putting together bedding I’m all about a layered look with multiple patterns mixed together. To show you how I put together my layered bedding I’ve partnered with Anthropologie to show you how I’ve mastered the art of bed layering.




The best way to mix patterns and textures is by using the same tones. If you keep them in the same color family, everything will pair together beautifully.



Want more tips on the art of layering together different bedding? Pop over to Anthropologies blog to get more tips from me. You can also achieve this same look in your own bedroom with the items below. I know I’ve been wanting to stay in bed a little bit longer now that it has all of these soft linens on it.

One Bed. Two Spaces.

This past fall during an inspiring “how can we re-invent our spaces” talk with my mom we were on the topic of  beds – yes, I know that might be boring to some, but for could have gone on for hours. We went our separate ways to search and came back both having found the perfect bed for our respective spaces. Wouldn’t you know it that it was the same bed! The Pondicherry bed by Serena & Lily – like mother, like daughter.

We’re each thrilled to receive our new beds.  I’ll no longer have to deal with an ugly bed-skirt, and my mom will finally have a guest room ready for family and friends that come to visit San Francisco.

We thought it would be fun document how each of us styled the bed in our own spaces, so, along with Serena & Lily we invited the lovely Michelle Drewes  to create this video!

Want to get a similar look? Here is how.

Caitlin’s Bedroom: 1. Charcoal Mohair Whipstitch Throw 2.  Pewter Gobi Embroidered Sheet Set 3. Pewter Border Frame Duvet

Julie’s Guest Bedroom: 1.  Chocolate Gobi Embroidered Sheet Set 2. White Pickstitch Matelasse 3. Chocolate Border Frame Euro Sham

I’m thrilled with the way each room turned out and it was such a pleasure working with Serena & Lily on these spaces.

A Luxurious Giveaway with Vero Linens!

Who doesn’t love exquisite sheets? Ever since I was a little girl my mom told me “you sleep in your bed every single night – so don’t skimp.” I’ve always followed this rule and I’m even one of those weird people that irons their pillow cases when they come out of the dryer. So when Vero Linens approached me about testing out their Egyptian cotton sheets, I jumped at the chance.  I have never felt anything like these sheets – soft, cool, and luxurious they enveloped my tired body and lulled me into slumber.  I can’t imagine using any other linens again. They are pure heaven!

After just one night sleep in these luxurious sheets I knew that partnering with Vero Linens was a must in order to bring all of you a chance to win a set of sheets. A little background on Vero Linen’s – this luxury cotton bedding has been produced for over 150 years by a family of craftsmen in Northern Italy. With over four generations working in the industry – they definitely know the in’s and out’s of the business. Vero Linens uses only the finest grades of Egyptian cotton produced. But it gets better, they sell their linens directly to the customer – no more middleman or mark-up. Therefore, the savings from direct internet selling is passed down to their customer.   These savings are rather considerable, because they sell exclusively on the internet, Vero is able to offer a savings of over 50 percent.  In addition, Vero Linens offers free shipping in the United States and a 10 day/100% money back guarantee.

Well friends – get excited because Vero Linens is giving away an entire sheet set to one lucky winner! Seriously,  enter now because this is one giveaway that you REALLY don’t want to miss out on – it’s prize that’s worth over $500.

bedroom inspiration . .

Yesterday in my “four favorites” post I featured the Ornate bed – well I can’t stop thinking about it and Christiane from Dwell Studio asked how I would decorate it if I owned it. I was totally up for taking a little bit of time to get creative and put together an inspiration board.

As you all know, I had to stick to my neutral colors, but added in fun textures to spice it up. The mix of a Madeline Weinrib rug, Bungalow 5 lamp, CB2 dressers and West Elm and Dwell Studio pillows make for a cozy sanctuary to cuddle in every night.

Now that I’ve created this board I wish the bed could magically appear at my doorstep.

bed: which one do you adore?

Last night my mom and I were sitting in her new condo discussing what style of bed she should purchase for the guest bedroom – from traditional to antique to modern . . . the possibilities are endless. So after searching for the perfect style I thought it might be fun to have all of you weigh in on your favorite style. Which do you adore the most?
