A Great and Luxurious Giveaway!

Elsie de Wolfe, 1936

 

How do you like to dress your bed?  For decades, we all used bedspreads like this, quilted and to the floor. 

 

 

image

Jacqueline Kennedy’s 1963 White House bedroom. 

Even with the bedspread pulled back, the bed was still dressed with thin cotton “blanket covers.”  Often blanket covers were trimmed in either pink or blue and were monogrammed.

 

image

The down duvet was a European staple, but in the U.S. until the 1970s, the quilted bedspread remained popular.

 

 

image

The biggest change in bedding in the last few decades has come about with America embracing the down duvet – which is often paired with the thick cotton Matelassé cover.  This combination brought about the end of the thin, cotton blanket cover.

 

image

Some prefer to use the Matelassé alone, without the duvet at the foot of the bed. 

 

 

image

Shabby Chic championed the duvet at the end of the bed – the “unmade bed” look. The messier the bed, the better.

 

 

image

This gorgeous bed uses a dressier “unmade bed” look, with a duvet and an emphasis on the fine linens.

 

image

About a decade ago, Michael S. Smith started mixing Suzanis and other ethnic textiles at the end of the unmade bed, instead of a matching fabric covered duvet. 

 

 

image

This bed used a Matelassé with a Suzani. 

 

 

image

I went after a Michael Smith look in my own bedroom with an antique suzani.  But, I paired it with an old fashioned bedspread made new because of its linen fabric.

 

image

Rose Tarlow mixed an antique textile with a silk covered duvet in her L.A. bedroom.  That floor!!!!

 

 

image

In this fancy bedroom, a printed Matelassé is paired with high thread count sheets and luxurious printed fabrics on the canopy.

 

 

image

This bed by Miles Redd emphasizes expensive sheeting with trim.

 

 

image

Despite the exquisite canopy, the bed is dressed with sheets and a plain duvet.

 

 

image

The “unmade bed” is a soft look with no hard edges.   Before this look became popular,  fine, high thread count European linens were something known only to the elite few. 

 

image

The “unmade” bed highlighted fine, European sheets and shams.  Just looking at this picture, you can imagine how espensive these sheets are.

 

image

Here Jane Moore takes a fresh approach using a Matelassé mixed with a fine sheet covering the duvet.

 

image

In this beautiful Houston home, Eleanor Cummings mixes sheets for a messy unmade bed look.

 

THE GIVEAWAY:

 

image

Looking at all those beautiful European sheets and pillowcases sure makes me want a new set for my bedroom.  AND, that is exactly what the giveaway is!!!

A set of your choice of King, Californian King, Queen or Full size. Yes!!!!

The set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet and a pair of pillowcases. 

Your choice is the either the Diamante or Righetta stripe in white, ivory or sable.

Vero Linens, a new sponsor at Cote de Texas has generously donated this giveaway.

Vero Linens produces luxury linen sheets.  Vero is able to sell their pure Egyptian cotton sheets at a considerable savings compared to other companies because they bypass the middleman by selling directly to the consumer over the internet.  Therefore, the savings from direct internet selling is passed down to their customer.   These savings are rather considerable – and because of this, the market for these linens is now open to many more consumers who seek luxury at a lessor cost.

Realize that while other linen manufacturers sell on the internet, their product is still sold at full retail.  Vero, because they sell exclusively on the internet, are able to offer a savings of over 50 percent.  In addition Vero Linens offers free shipping in the United States and a 1o day/100% money back guarantee.

  1. Wow! What a timely topic for me. I've been struggling with how to update my bed, and decided to ditch the duvet for a plain matelasse.

    Your research will help me pick the best new look!

    I'd love the white Diamante sheets -- my husband just gave me a Meile rotary iron (mangle) and I'm the happiest housewife on the west coast! I'd love to iron some new sheets!

  28. OH my gracious!! I am getting married in April and renovating our new home! The ivory Righetta sheets would be a perfect addition to our new master bedroom!!

    Love your blog - it's been a great decorating inspiration to me!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I rarely enter giveaways, but I have done nothing to update my bed or sheets in the new house (so sad how the master bedroom is often last priority) and I would love to have a set of ivory Diamante sheets in king! I have always been a white sheet person, but the room is calling out for ivory.

    I am hoping that my designer and I can finish off the decor of the bedroom this year. It will be interesting to see what she prefers for bed style. I tend to like the Phoebe Howard style bed with a crisp quilted blanket cover, three euro shams in a matching material to the blanket cover, and two decorative pillows (my preference is monogrammed) in front. I have a down blanket, which is perfect year round in Atlanta - I am not a big fan of the messy duvet cover look.

    I am always a fan of luxury sheets, though - particularly Egyptian cotton, which I find to be the softest and most comfortable.

  143. Joni, Thank you! I have only the sheets to go to finish the room I have patiently nurtured with "found" items from auctions, attics and surprises in trunks for two years. It's finally looking luscious and needs only 1 NEW addition...that being these inviting Vero sheets. The Diamante Queen Sable would be the perfect fit! Gratefully, Susie (keckse@msn.com)

  160. Thanks Joni! This is very timely for me as we just purchased a new king size bed. The White Diamante is the perfect classic sheet.

    Living in GA, we really don't need duvets, so we have gone with a matelasse with a wool Indian paisley bedspread at the end of the bed for a little ethnic flavor and texture.

  189. Hmmm, I was just searching the other day for some idea's to change the look of our bedding.I decided great flat sheets exposed in layers on the top {and different colours} and the Matelasse cover is the look.
    Crisp white sheets in the Diamonte {King size} are the beautiful and would be my choice.

    Love the looks you showed, I might steal a few idea's to add to my own room update.
