Makeover Your Bedroom with Area {A Giveaway!}

Posted by | View all posts by

If you’re not already familiar with the amazing modern bedding from our friends at Area, then you should remedy that, pronto.  Area is a small independent company that creates products for the modern life.  They have an incredible line of furniture and bedding that is based on the modern Scandinavian concept of good design for everyday living.  Area started as a collection of screen-printed cotton duvet covers and has expanded immensely since their inception in 1990, and now they make a wide variety of products such as organic cotton sheets, linen duvets, and blankets made in baby alpaca.

I was able to speak with Area’s designer, Anki Spets, on the phone about a month ago and was struck by her dedication to a product that encompasses beauty, simplicity, modernity and practicality in design. Her talent for imbuing her products with both refined design sensibility and a human touch is what makes each collection truly distinctive.

Anki and I spoke about the most important place in the home – your bedroom.  A bedroom should feel comfortable and peaceful, and your bed is the place where that comfort begins.  I was recently researching Feng Shui for the bedroom and stumbled across an article which states “a ‘good looking’ and well-balanced bed is very important in creating a perfect feng shui bedroom. A good mattress, solid headboard and high quality sheets from natural fibers are also very important in creating harmonious feng shui energy.

What does your bedroom, and namely your bed, look like?  Are you creating a peaceful environment for your mind and body to rest and recharge or do you have a mish-mash of bedding products that just make you look, well, confused?

Area wants to help you by offering one of our very lucky readers the chance to do a little spring cleaning in their bedroom, and give their bed a complete makeover. The winner of our giveaway will receive the following from Area - 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, 1 duvet cover, 1 blanket, 2  pillow cases, and 1 body pillow with insert.  That’s a value of over $1,000.

To celebrate, we’re also offering 15% off of Area’s new EDITH & SWEA lines which are both gorgeous and decadent.  Also, don’t let the giveaway stop you from purchasing something – if you win the contest and you’ve purchased the bedding, we will fully refund your money – so make sure you snatch it up now while it’s on sale!

Ready to enter – we have lots of ways to win!  See the entry form below — good luck!

Brand Spankin’ New: MASH Studios Storage Platform Bed {$100 Giftcard Giveaway}


Posted by Christy | View all posts by Christy

Do you like what you see above? Me too. This is the MASH studios LAX series storage platform bed. If you’re a fanatic about modern design you’ll not only like this platform bed for it’s simplistic appearance but also love the fact that there are 8 built-in rolling drawers. Say goodbye to scary under-the-bed chaos!

Now, if this were my platform bed, those drawers would be filled with various items. PAJAMAS, duh! My second thought was that every time I put shoes on while getting ready I’m sitting on my bed so I would definitely relocate my sock drawer. For the days I plan to workout at 5am (ha!) I’d have a drawer filled with exercise clothes. Some other items I thought would be helpful to have bedside are extra blankets, medicine and a flashlight. As you can see, this platform bed will free up space in your closet and dresser and help make your life more convenient and organized!

Also, this platform bed can fit a queen size mattress with a little over-hang as seen in the picture, but has a major bonus for all of you leggy-types – it also fits a California King mattress! Of course, then you won’t have the sexy platform surrounding the bed but hey – you can’t have it all!

Each drawer is 22 inches long—that’s 4 drawers on each side that are almost 2 feet long. That’s seriously like having 2 extra dressers worth of storage! You won’t know what to do with so much room!

For all of you design buffs, we have an exclusive bonus for you – the first 10 of these gorgeous storage platform beds that we sell will be signed by the designer himself – making this piece a collectors item!

Go check out the MASH Studios storage platform bed and get one for yourself before Spring cleaning sneaks up on you!

Have you noticed our Design in Action action yet? In a nutshell, we want to see what you order from us around your home. Email us a shot and you’ll get $10 off your next order. Email us a picture with you or a friend in the shot and you’ll be entered to win a $200 drawing that month! Not a bad deal considering how easy camera phones are to use these days. Don’t fret over making things perfect, calling a makeup artist, or even making your bed (who knows, it could come out very Todd Selby unmade!) You can involve your family, your pets or random strangers who happen to be nearby.

The Design in Action shot I’m digging today (above) was submitted by Maleka, and it shows off the Pop and Lolli fabric wall decals called My Name Is (Alphabet). While we love the fun font on these wall decals, we like the model even more!
