Bedroom Refresh with Crane & Canopy

There's nothing like spring to get you in the mood for a refresh around the house, right?
 Well, my client happened to find a fabric she fell in love with and wanted to use it as
 inspiration for a bedroom refresh. Do you remember the Craigslist Bedroom I did a couple
 years ago for the One Room Challenge? That's the one!
 We intentionally kept the base pieces in the room neutral so it would be simple to change
 up down the road. This time she wanted to incorporate some of her blue and white pottery
 collection, and tie it in with the pretty chinoiserie patterned fabric she loved,
 which we put on a custom lumbar pillow. 
 I was so excited when Crane & Canopy reached out to me to try their bedding, I knew
 the exact pattern that would pull our room together perfectly! 

We love it!
We chose the Crane & Canopy Page Blue reversible duvet cover and shams, both reverse
 from white on one side to the navy print on the other. Super easy to change time!
Both feature hidden zipper enclosures and white piping for a tailored finish. Interior ribbons
 on the corners keep your duvet in place. And, they're machine washable!

Sometimes I'm hesitant ordering online because I really like to feel everything, haha!
We were pleasantly surprised, the bedding has a beautifully, silky luxurious feel. 
They use the highest quality extra long-staple cotton with weaves ranging in the 
300-400 thread count, and it feels fabulous. 
I did not know...
that 1000 thread count sheets are actually not good!
To get 1000 thread you need to use really thin threading, and the sweet spot for duvet
covers and sheets is 400, so that explains it. 

We added a vibrant green trim to give the shams a custom look and set off the 
pretty green in the lumbar fabric.  
Accessories for our refresh came from my go-to, Homegoods. We found the pair of tall
brass and white lamps, shell artwork, blue and white pottery, and blue ikat throw
 pillows there.

If you missed the original before and after design of this bedroom for the
One Room Challenge you might be surprised to know it was done on a budget with
Craigslist finds (nightstands, x-benches, ceiling chandelier) IKEA (drapes) and my
favorite upholstered headboard from Walmart. All sources can be found here.
Crane & Canopy is able to offer reasonably priced luxurious bedding because they
 go direct to the best bedding factories, cutting out the middle man and passing the
 savings on to their customers!  

One of my blogging besties, Lisa @ Shine Your Light, is also sharing a bedroom 
refresh today. I know we're in for a treat, here's a peek of her teen room for you:

Thank you so much to Crane & Canopy for the invitation to try their beautiful
 quality bedding, it couldn't be more perfect, and we couldn't be happier with it!

Oooooh I love the blue & white bedding. It looks so fantastic with the lumbar pillow fabric and the green trim on the shamsl! This room is one of my favorites of yours, I've shared it a million times with clients and I'm impressed it how you were able to totally change the color palette with just the bedding and accessories this time around!

Cherie said...

What a beautiful room! Could you please share the name of the chinoiserie fabric your client found?

Hi Cherie - Thank you! We found it locally at Calico, but it's available to order online - Zen Toile Linen.

Kris Jarrett said...

Just when I thought I couldn't love this room more! Love, love, love the new look and your nightstand styling (as always) is amazing!!

Jen @ RamblingRenovators said...

Love how you've styled this room! The bedding looks so inviting. I can't believe you originally created this room on a budget!

Julia Konya said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I always love how you accessories too and I can't keep my bedding wrinkle free no matter how hard I try ;) This is perfection in so many ways.

Melissa said...

Hi Pam, you've talked about sewing a pleat in Ikea drapes before- can you share how to do that? Maybe a tutorial? I like every your work, thanks

Melissa said...

Oops, I love your work

Jane Winters said...

Classy look! Swooning over the Zen Toile pillow!!!

I love how you created such a beautiful chameleon base that can be changed up so easily for very little $. Love the Zen toile, the customized Crane and Canopy bedding, and your beautiful styling. Such an inviting sanctuary!

Joanne said...

I love it! I never find such treasures on my local Craigslist. I do need to shop Homesense more often though.
I love this duvet and adding the green ribbon to the shams is the perfect touch. I want to refresh my guest room. It has two light blue & flax check chairs that I have to work around. I was going to go with simple white but would like to add a dash of color and pattern on the bed. Any suggestions?

Cindy Hattersley said...

This is just gorgeous Pam! I am going to have to check them out!!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I love how that little bit of pattern totally transforms your beautifully designed room... you improved on perfection! And how smart to add the trim to the euros, totally takes them over the top! (I really love those lamps, too!)

Connie said...

A great post--I loved the room before and love it now. I'm going to buy ribbon today!! I was delighted to see a new post by you. I've missed reading about your decor ideas.

Carrie said...

The bedroom looks great! I clicked back to the original post to check out the original sources for the room and can't tell you how much I LOVE the Walmart bed!!! It looks great and it's inspiring to see you looking for great deals wherever they may be found. I know most in the blog-o-sphere are Target and Homegoods only gals, and I love it that you'll look everywhere for great stuff at the best price. I'm thinking about buying that bed now. I buy most things used, but that's a true bargain. Thanks for your awesome blog:)

Love the reresh! I used Zen in my ORC Black Walled library and I love it still. Such a gret chinoiserie fabric. I feel like my first ORC ever, a guest room, really needs some refresh love. You have motivated me to get with it!

Brenda said...

Loved this room the first time around and love the refresh also. You make everything look custom. Your lucky client! Please tell me that you're going to do another ORC?
