Go Bold in the Bedroom

At Jonathan Adler, optimistic color and modernist design are part of the company's fun and luxe bedding collection. As Jonathan notes, bedding is "the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see when you go to bed. It should make you happy and calm — choose colors and textures that you love. Our bedding brings our favorite colors, groovy fabrics and the luxury of cotton percale to your bed, making you well rested when you wake." Image courtesy of Jonathan Adler

Layer Patterned Linens

Textile designer John Robshaw travels the world to discover the most luxurious linens to create layers of exotic touches for his bedding collection. "Layering and having seasonal options is always key. For instance, have a couple different sets of patterned sheets that you can swap out for variety, or coordinated quilts on hand when it's too warm for a duvet. I think more is more."

Splurge on Down

Says designer Taniya Nayak, "When it comes to choosing a comforter, I prefer a 100-percent down comforter that can fit inside a duvet." Pair a down comforter with splurge-worthy bedding that has a high thread count. As Taniya notes, "Bedding is not the place to skimp when it comes to saving money because a good night's sleep is truly priceless." Image courtesy of Taniya Nayak

Thread Count Matters

Jonathan Adler agrees that thread count matters when it comes to luxurious bedding, "Our bedding is 400 thread count; very soft, sumptuous and just heaven for resting your weary head at night," says Jonathan. Image courtesy of Jonathan Adler

Make It Comfy

For comfortable bedding Taniya Nayak advises purchasing "down comforters, mattress toppers and pillows. For pillows, purchase inexpensive pillows for a decorative, layered effect and buy quality ones for your good night's rest. If you're someone that sleeps on their back, foam pillows may give more support than down. If you sleep on your stomach, try a softer down pillow." Image courtesy of Taniya Nayak

Purchase Bedding That Will Last

Finally, choose quality bedding that will endure years of laundering. At John Robshaw, the prewash process creates bedding that will wear beautifully over time. Says John, "I like a dry 300 thread count Egyptian cotton percale; it washes perfectly. Since we print then again wash our fabrics, they have a great prewashed hand and our colors last and last."
