Exciting New Decor Bedding to Enhance Your Lifestyle

Exciting New Decor Bedding to Enhance Your Lifestyle

We are excited about some of the new decor bedding styles that are coming out this year.
Two have just got added to the Quality Bedding Sets catalog.
Ottawa Cabin Duvets and Bedding SetsThe first are the Ottawa Cabin duvets and bedding set. From Wooded River the breathtaking lodge themed bedding ensemble brings the air of outdoors and wildlife. The duvet cover features bear, deer and pine trees on a beige field and does a lot to bring a bedroom retreat to life. It has several accent pillows a throw blanket and pillow shams that can be add. I think this is a great new addition to the catalog and would love to have one for myself.



Another one that really caught my eye is the Drummond bedding collection.

Drummond Western Bedding Collection

The sage and chocolate paisley pattern give it a western decor look that so pleasing to the eye. It’s a great bed in a bag that has everything one would need to give a bedroom that top of the bed makeover for not a lot of money.


As I think of decor bedding it congers up thoughts of the outdoors, horseback rides and the great Rocky Mountains that are just miles away. Now I know there are a lot of other bedding styles like contemporary and modern that has a great look to them as well. My aunt had a contemporary style to her home and bedroom with bright colors, circles and squares with glass and chrome accents that was very nice. But to me there’s just nothing as warm and inviting after a long day, then a retreat in to a western or southwestern bedding style bedroom. I have a busy lifestyle to sustain and spending quality restful time is a necessity to keep it going. Lodge and cabin bedding can bring the Northwood’s right into your bedroom with bear or moose and elk along with pine trees reminiscent of the fishing trip of a couple summers ago you are longing to take again. And that country western style of cowboy bedding with ropers and horses bring the old west creates a focal point for any decor themed bedroom. With a well crafted or hand crafted bed set your interior decor screams out style and comfort no matter what the style of your quality bedding set.

Hi everyone. Thanks for all your responses. Look for more of the glossary of terms soon. I had a hick up yesterday with the blog so the Glossary of Terms was not able to be posted. So I decided to throw a different one up here this morning. Let’s say you want to create a nice northwoods bedroom decor. You have your choice of fine quality bedding sets with your cabin and lodge duvet cover or comforter sets. You will get your decor going with some nice pictures and maybe some bearfoots figurines or stuff from nature you acquired on last year’s camping trip.

Now you would like to change the color of your bedroom retreat but aren’t sure which colors to choose. You may want to look at some new color trends or just decide on your own. Be sure to choose colors that express yourself and remember that your bedroom is where you go to retreat, relax and rejuvenate. I found a video that will help with choosing colors.

I myself prefer earth tones, they are warm relaxing and easy on the eyes. I also tend to get bedding that has earth tones as well. Just remember to choose colors that are in your bedding as that will make the colors you chose coordinate with and complement each other. I like to keep them on the lighter side but depending on the room size a darker accent wall can be quite a nice addition. Whatever you do refrain using colors that will visually shrink the room, it’s were you go to unwind and it won’t help if your bedroom makes you feel closed in. The same folks created this video that will show you how colors affect your body.

Well unfortunately I am running out of time this morning so I am going to leave the rest up to you. But I think this will get you headed in the right direction. If you would like to have me expand on this subject just let me know and I will do more blogging on the subject and get a little deeper on how to create your perfect bedroom retreat. Thanks for following and have a great weekend creating your new bedroom.


Bedroom Decorating Idea, Bedding Glossary of Terms, Part 3

Bedroom Decorating Idea, Bedding Glossary of Terms


I won’t necessarily be listing terms in alphabetical order, but will be sharing terms from which you can pick and choose to create your own glossary of terms that will help you with your bedroom decorating idea and interior decor.


Valances are a popular window treatment decorating tool born from the Victorian Era.  They are an attractive window treatment that effectively and discreetly conceal drapery hardware.  Valances can be used in conjunction with blinds and curtains or hung alone for a clean, modern look.  Sometimes referred to as swag, valances are a great way to personalize your bedroom decorating idea and bedding accessories.

Ascot Valance

Classic Swag Valance
Ascot valances are usually made with ornate materials such as silk or velvet and are often adorned with tassels and fringe.  It is a triangular treatment usually used on a double rod between two matching panels. This elaborate valance will add a traditional sense of  luxury to any room in your house.

Balloon Valance
Just as the name implies, a balloon valance provides a full, puffy appearance.  It is a straight across valance that contains sewn pockets that can be filled with tissue paper or left empty for a more stream lined and tailored look.  Balloon valances are often made of lightweight cotton material. These valances are great in feminine and little girls’ bedrooms.

Cornice Valance

Unlike other valances, the cornice valance is mounted to a cornice board.  This provides for a clean look and the boards can be covered in any material you desire–flat, padded or pleated.  The beauty of the the cornice valance is that you can change your look without changing all of your curtains or drapes.

Festoon Valance

From the Latin festa, this decorative valance is just what the Latin origin implies–festive!  The Festoon valance is characterized by folded fabric that hangs in a curved shape and frames the top of the window.





Jabot Valance

A three pieced valance, the jabot valance is versatile on many levels.  The two side pieces hand down the sides of the window and the center piece fits the width of the window.  This look often has a scalloped effect, but can be manipulated in many ways to produce a number of desired looks from elegant to funky.

Swag Valances

Searching for that “Pottery Barn Perfect” look?  Look no further, the swag window valance is for you!  A swag is a style where the fabric hangs in semicircular folds.  The swag can be fashioned in a number of ways to produce a formal/draped look or a more casual, ruffled look.  The swag can be elaborate or simply a loosely draped piece of fabric, making it one of the more versatile, and depending on your fabric choice economical valance options.

These are just a few examples of some of the more popular valances.  I look forward to any feedback or suggestions regarding some of your favorite types of valances or if you want some more information I would be happy to provide you with more options.  Valances are a nice way to change the look of a room without changing all of your window treatments.  I love the versatile valance!

In our next glossary of terms post, we will talk about comforters, coverlets and others. If there is a term that I haven’t covered that you would like to know about, just drop me a comment. In the mean time I hope this helps with choosing your quality bedding.

I found an interesting video on how to hang a valance. Here it is on youtube in case you want to see the larger version.
