Four new beds, four new mattresses, four new mattress pads, four new sets of sheets, and four new bed covering ensembles had arrived in time for the weekend! Treating your guests to a luxurious nights sleep on silky soft sheets and brand new mattresses is like staying at a four star resort! And Jill overachieved this task!
First bed- a dreamy gilded wood frame with a gray velvet upholstery- yummy from Horchow! King sized and so comfortable with a new memory foam mattress, it is dressed in a white embroidered duvet and shams and Bella Notte pillows. Snuggle up in the faux fur that has been artfully draped across the corner.
The sun streams into this bedroom early in the morning from the French doors that lead to a terrace- perfect for morning coffee!
Close up detail of the embroidery on the white duvet and shams. It was a wonderful find at HomeGoods. It will have to do until the Bella Notte satin duvet and over sized shams arrive next month!
Jill placed fresh roses in every guest room.
Every bedroom has it's own bath, which she supplied with luxury soaps, lotions and towels.
Walk in marble showers with luxury shower heads await each guest.
Next up- an iron canopy bed from Restoration Hardware- dressed in a linen coverlet and linen shams, accented with leopard. A tartan settee sits by the window. In winter, the bed will be dressed in tartans in shades of black, white and red. A luggage rack- a thoughtful gesture- sits at the end of the bed- also purchased at Restoration Hardware.
It's adjoining bath has a delightful polished nickel and marble console sink,
A bath tub and shower combination is in this bath- the tub to bath Jill's grandbabies- soon to be three!
Bedroom number three- another great bed from Restoration Hardware.
Tufted linen headboard and foot board are on iron feet.
Gray velvet Bella Notte bedding graces the bed. This silk bedding is so soft and comfortable and washes beautifully. It is over a linen coverlet.
Next up- the grand daddy bed of all time- a four poster beauty from Ebanista! With it's four posters soaring high into the air, it is the perfect choice for the master bedroom with 20 foot ceilings!
Satin embroidered Bella Notte duvet and shams are mixed with
a gray silk coverlet and throw pillows from Designer's Guild.
The Ebanista bed has a taupe velvet insert and French nail heads.
A close up of the poster details- a soft gray paint accented with a platinum gilded detail.
And of course- the adjoining bath. Honed slabs of white marble are laid in the Versailles pattern.
An air jet soaker tub sits at the end of the bath under a beautiful chandelier.
This home is truly a wonderful place to stay. With guest rooms on the lower level and private bathrooms for each, each guest can have their own privacy .
As a side note-----
It was funny to hear the girls ask Jill how she made the bed sheets so tight!
Jill is the master of making a bed tight and perfect. While I was helping her make a bed one evening, she taught me how to make a hospital corner. Her mother was a nurse and taught her this technique many years ago.
I found this You Tube video that demonstrates the technique.
