You’ve already seen what’s on my bedside table but today I’m excited to share our new art prints and monogrammed bedding! I was so excited when Matouk reached out about sending me new bedding with our married monogram, especially after my friend Amy told me it was the softest bedding she’s ever slept on. I’ve always admired their monogrammed shams on Instagram and Pinterest and was so excited to see our initials in one of their signature appliqué styles!
I had the hardest time narrowing down my favorite style from their assortment. I wish I could have one of everything! I ultimately decided on the Matouk Lowell style, crisp white bedding with a simple navy border that coordinates with our headboard. I ordered the Lowell style on a duvet cover, a flat sheet, two Euro shams, two king shams, and two standard shams and then personalized the Euro shams and standard shams with an appliqué monogram in the diamond style. I legitimately squealed when I opened the package and saw our monogram for the first time! And I can now safely say this is the nicest bedding I’ll ever own — unbelievably soft, absolutely gorgeous, and just a delight to climb into every night. Matouk bedding is definitely an investment, but even a couple monogrammed shams could completely transform a plain bedroom!
Once we had our new bedding squared away, I knew I needed to find something for above the bed. I assumed we’d hang the same mirror above our bed that we’d had in our Dallas bedroom, but our ceilings are much lower in this bedroom and there really wasn’t enough room for the mirror on top of our headboard without things looking really crowded. So I scoured all my usual art sources and went with three prints from one of my tried-and-true favorite photographers, Slim Aarons. I would cover my whole house in them (and let’s be honest, I’m well on the way). I had dozens of favorites (I order mine from photos.com) but narrowed it down based on what colors would brighten up our navy headboard and how the three prints would look hanging next to one another. I love that this trio has a beach moment in the center but also brings in a little green to the largely blue and white room.
