White Bedding Styling Tips by Steven Whitehead | Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn The White Bed Stephen Whitehead My name is Steven Whitehead, I’ve been a bedding stylist for about fifteen years and I work with pottery barn. The white bed has a certain mystique and you go into a beautiful spa hotel the beds tend to be variations of a white theme, and it allows people to completely unwind and just be. I think for a lot of people they think that white is very delicate, when it’s soiled, it’ll let you know, as I would want my favorites to do and I would say the majority of the bedding that pottery barn sells is machine washable. It’s very easy to care for and you can trust that when you start to build a collection of white bedding that it’s always going to go together it’s always going to be classic, it’s always going to look good. The great thing about building a collection of white bedding is that it’s so easy, you add a new element, a new coverlet, a new sham, a new decorative pillow and all of a sudden you have a beautiful new room.

It is timeless it’s classic and you will always be able to use it. The nice thing about the white bed is that it can take on any number of personas, it can be very clean and masculine, very organized and geometric, it can be very romantic with ruffle with beautiful heirloom linens, it can take on any type of identity you need it to take on. Seasonally you can do lightweight wool blankets, lightweight cotton blankets so that you can do it from season from summer to winter to spring. There’s always an appropriate bedding that Pottery Barn sells that will work for any season of the year. One of our tricks of the trade to use a little bit of water and a spray bottle to ease out wrinkles. You could use this in your guest room if you want to freshen a duvet or sheets before your guests arrive and what we’ve done too do is to add a little bit of lavender so that the water has a slight scent and just freshens the linen, and it makes it really welcoming to your guests.

I think it’s important in your linen closet or whatever storage you have is that, first of all, edit, get rid of anything that you don’t use that doesn’t function for you that’s too small, that’s dated, and then make sure that you fold your linens so that everything that you own is in plain view that you can access it that you can see what is in your entire collection. That way you can rotate you can make sure that your’re utilizing everything that you own and your fabrics are going to wear more evenly that way and you’ll enjoy them for a much longer time. The bed is very important. We spent probably a third of our lives in bed. It’s a space of renewal, and you want to have that space be tranquil and inviting and you want to have the best sound asleep possible. Pottery Barn .

Easy Steps To Make a Hotel Style Bed | Pottery Barn

Hi, I’m Danielle with Pottery Barn. One of our top questions is how we make our beds so beautiful? Today, we’re sharing our secrets with you so that you can recreate our signature, hotel-inspired Classic bedding at your home. A beautiful bed always starts with comfortable quality basics. Mattress, mattress pad, bed skirt, fitted sheet flat sheet, duvet insert, pillow insert. Our Westin Heavenly Bed Mattress, with its plush pillow top, is the perfect foundation for a beautiful, comfortable bed. For an un-beatable, sink-in feeling, add our luxurious mattress pad. Quick tip: to extend the life of your mattress, turn it every three months. We tag each corner with a month as a friendly reminder. Layer on your desired sheeting. Our sheeting comes in thread counts ranging from 300-700. Choose from Pure Cotton, Organic Cotton and Italian Sateen. We have patterns and details that fit every style and budget. Create hotel corners for a neat, tailored appearance. Fold the bottom tail diagonally across the side of the bed, then tuck the excess sheeting under the mattress. Quick tip: In lieu of ironing, spray bedding with a water bottle to refresh the fabrics.

We added Lavender sprigs for a bit of scent. The colors of our Grand and Classic Stripe Bedding Collections were designed to mix and match. Layer individual pieces from both Collections to create a tailored bed that’s just right for you. We use a duvet, 2 duvet insert, a quilt, 2 Euro shams, 2 sleeping pillows, 2 decorative pillows, 2 standard shams, 1 boudoir pillow. For a smooth, clean look, secure the insert inside the duvet cover. Shake out the duvet to fluff it up and prevent bunching. For year-round comfort, use our Classic down insert. For more loft, use our supreme or luxury fill inserts. Quick tip: to easily fill cases, fold pillows in half before inserting. Fluff each pillow before placing on the bed. Quick tip: for a fuller look, put a small amount of batting in the corners of your Euro shams and fluff them each time you make the bed. Our formula for a beautiful, classic, queen size bed is: 2 euros, 2 standard cases, 2 standard shams, and 1 boudoir pillow. A quilt adds a finished, more tailored look and can be used when needed for extra warmth.
