DefiningElegance.com is proud to be an on-line luxury linen-boutique, carrying many well known designer linens including Signoria. We’ve just added their Platium collection which consists of white Egyptian cotton percale duvet cover, sheets, shams, and pillowcases. Embroidered with 3 beautiful lines of color, Platinum is 400 thread count and coordinates beautifully with Raffaello and Masaccio collections. Now you can mix Raffaello solid with Masaccio quilted and add Platinum embroidered percale sheets to express your personal style. Embroidered detail is available in the same 26 colors.
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.”
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.
Masaccio quilted bedding coordinates beautifully with Raffaello and Platinum collections. The quilted coverlets, shams, and bedskirts are available in the same 26 colors, so it is easy to mix and match to get the right look for your personal style.
Empress Silk bedding has introduced a new line of cotton and silk blend pinstripe sheets. Available in 4 colors (Blush, Petal Green, Sand, and White), the sheets and pillowcases can be ordered separately or as a set. A generous 530 thread count blend of 60% cotton and 40% silk, the subtle pinstripe pattern and soft touch further enhance the incomparable luxury of these bed linens.
DefiningElegance.com has just added this beautiful and relaxing Largo Stripe collection of multi-colored vertical striped percale bedding by SDH. Inspired by the lush gardens of Polynesia, the collection is 543 thread count 100% Egyptian cotton and is woven in Italy. We’ve included SDH’s Hawaii collection of ribbed covers, shams, and bedskirts which coordinates beautifully with Largo Stripe.
One way to stay cool this summer is by adorning your bed with 100% linen sheets. High quality woven linen is a rare find these days. Craftsmen that have been working with the flax plant and its fibers for centuries weave the SDH Brighton collection in Germany. As its namesake invokes, Brighton is a fresh, classic collection. Clean, crisp stripes are brought to life by the texture of the linen fibers that weave them. This traditional collection is revived with a current fresh color palette.
We’ve just added Sophia, a new collection introduced from SDH bedding this spring. It has a classic Italian late 19th century design, yet it is very today. Our favorite color set is the Palm Green because it is such a spring/summer color. Coordinating Anna, Sateen, and Gobi collections in the same colors allow you to mix it up for variety. SDH is wonderful about keeping their collections classic and not too trendy.
