Add a Quilted Coverlet for Added Texture and Warmth

Layering bedding has been a designer’s secret to creating an inviting bed ensemble for clients. Bedcovers are both funtional and decorative and can add a touch of much needed texture, warmth, and asthetics to your bedroom. Using a tone on tone design such as with the SDH Vine Boutis or SDH Orchid Boutis is preferrable to avoid taking the focus off the main bedding. The beautiful color selections offered allow you to use contrasting or blending hues for the perfect affect. See these and other coverlet selections by visiting our new Quilted Coverlet category. You’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for.

The Signoria philosophy is explained as “… this is why household linens should no longer be seen as a marginal accessory to be stored away in a cabinet. No longer habit, monotony, routine, household linens have become a furnishing accessory, an ambient, a habitat. This change in perspective, this new sensitivity, typical of Signoria, consists of a certain way of viewing daily life, a search for style that has become synonymous all over the world with casual, natural, elegant good taste: the Tuscan way of life. Free from dusty nostalgia and beaming with radiant vitality. Because Tuscany is a continuation of the Renaissance. It means deep roots as well as modernity. And a look at the landscape. And still being able to arouse amazement.”

How to Choose a Color Scheme

If you’re stuck on choosing a color scheme for your bedroom, forget about the latest trends.  Start with something you love. Inspiration can come from heirloom pieces, treasured collections, or special keepsakes.  The delicate embroidery in heirloom pillows can be the starting point for a space with understated elegance.  The vibrant colors of a treasured Persian rug can spark a bold statement.   So pay attention to what is important to you, the emotional response, and the mood you want to set.  Go with colors that speak to you.
