Sleep in Style: 5 Tips From Gatehouse No.1 to Beautify Your Bedding


1 • Create a Sanctuary

We spend more time in our bedrooms than anywhere else, making it crucial we design a space that invokes relaxation and tranquility.

Your bedroom can become a true sanctuary in your home — the very best place to drift off and release the cares of the day and wake up for a fresh start.

Here are a few ways to create the space of your dreams from the design team at Gatehouse No. 1.

2 • Turn Heads

Your bed creates the design direction and focal point of your bedroom. From custom fabric or leather upholstered headboards to beds made with various woods and finishes, there is a style that will reflect your unique design sensibilities.

Our current favorite trend is customization: upholstered headboards continue to be our favorite, especially because you can select your fabric or leather, add tufting, nailhead trim, and other details to create the perfect bed.

3 • The Hue for You

Color palettes for bedrooms are best when they evoke peace and relaxation such as tranquil greens and blues. Soft tones like blush pinks, creamy whites and grays are also great — especially when paired with warmer camel and bronze or gold tones to keep it sophisticated and upscale.

Whatever color you land on, we recommend including a variety of textures that will keep it inviting and cozy.

4 • Comfort Counts

When it comes to bedding, textiles matter. Luxury linens will make your sleeping experience a dream.

With today’s advanced textile technology you can have comfort, durability and style all in one. We are currently loving Belgian linens for their ease of care and a clean, yet traditional quality look and feel.

Layers are key to creating comfort! Each layer counts: Sheet sets, coverlets, blankets and duvets all work together to create ideal bedding sure to give you a good night’s sleep.

5 • Pillow Talk

Pillows are the final touch to making the bed your own. A variety in size, shape and texture will give your bed a cultivated look. Start with shams (our current favorite are oversized super-king shams) along the back row, and either layer with a simple king sham in front for a clean but impactful look or finish it with a decorative pillow or two. Pillows bring it all together and complete your dream-worthy look.
