Makeover Your Bedroom with Area {A Giveaway!}

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!

Happy Tuesday DP Peeps!  Looking for some early-week inspiration?  I’ve got to say, this video from our friends at  MASH Studios totally made my day.  Remember a while back we told you about their new, awesomesauce storage platform bed?  Well, not only do they make these awesome, kick you-know-what products, but then they go and make videos like the one below. As if we needed anything to make us want this bed even more!   How great is this?

In glancing at the new DwellStudio Home 2010 Collection images I thought to myself, “Self, the folks at DwellStudio have such an amazing eye for putting various patterns and colors together…this is certainly something that doesn’t come easy to the rest of us. So, Self, why not create a quick and easy ‘Deconstructed DwellStudio Home Collection Guide’ to help DP peeps put together the looks they like?” And I did. This is super basic but should hopefully help create the “bedscape” of your dreams without having to go back and forth between Design Public product pages to figure out what is what.

Bedding Personalities

I was recently browsing through our DP Bedding Bash Flickr Group and saw this photo from citypix

modern black and white bedding
My initial reaction was: “Whoa, this photo is awesome!” This bedding scene has quite the casual feel to it, but it also exudes such richness. I would kind of like to just crawl in right now. Beautiful photo, citypix! Then I got to thinking about the various types of bedding personalities that are out there. We have the very informal, relaxed personality as seen above. There is the “I am casual, no fuss for me please…except when it comes to my piles of pillows” personality…

DwellStudio Draper Stripe bedding
Or, the “I am simple, only a few pillows, I make my bed every morning but it isn’t too hard” personality…
