Welcome to My Summer Bedroom Refresh

Easy Bedroom Refresh Before #Crane&Canopy

This is my bedroom before ~ very dull and boring.  I used to decorate with a passion ~ there was nothing safe in my path but 4 years ago life changed drastically for me and a re-prioritization of things became necessary.  Decorating went to the bottom of the list ~ keeping a clean home was one thing but keeping a pretty home became another.

Easy Bedroom Refresh Ashbury Yellow Duvet and Pillow ShamsA few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to work with Crane & Canopy.  Oh my goodness was I excited.   I was able to pick ANY duvet and pillow sham set that I wanted and I chose this lovely Ashbury Yellow duvet with matching pillow shams which is a luxurious 300 thread count 100% extra-long stable cotton sateen weave.  That means that it's high quality with a great feel to it.  *see tips below for thread count explanation

Easy Bedroom Refresh after with Crane&Canopy #sp #bedding #crane&canopy cupcakes-and-crinolineI wanted something to brighten up my room and that's why I chose the pattern above.  I was so excited by how pretty the bed looked I even added some pretties to my nightstand ~ a shabby chic bird, a live lavender plant and a pretty white planter with my twine nest in it.

I love the piping on the edges of the duvet and the pillow shams.  When I was little I always thought that was 'fancy' and I still do.  

Keep your comforter in place with duvet ties ~ Bedding from Crane & Canopy

Years ago I when I purchased a duvet from another company my comforter slid all over the place and ended up in a 'ball' at the bottom of the duvet ~ Crane & Canopy solves that problem with ties in the corner of their duvet covers.  It was super easy to slip the cover on ~ tie all the corners in place and zip up the bottom of my cover.  

We've been using our set for 2 weeks now and everything still looks bumps, no bulges and no slippage! To say we love our set would truly be an understatement.  Every night when I go into bed I have a smile on my face from this lovely, fashionable and high-quality bedding set.

      Thanks so much, Heather! I'm glad it's not just me that has a wonky comforter...this duvet though is awesome. Everything stays perfectly in place.
