As the warm days of summer start to give way to the cooler days of Fall, its time for a little bedroom makeover. Whites and brights are perfect for hot days, but nothing shouts “warm and cozy” louder than deep, rich, vibrant earthy colors. Colors that will pave the way right into the Christmas holidays and the New Year, colors like those found in bold, dramatic Ruby Kilim.
Patterned after Turkish kilim rugs, its rich palette of ruby red, deep cream and grey-black, will introduce warmth, color, and pattern to your bedroom. Blah will turn into beautiful, ho-hum will turn into handsome!
An muted elegant look
If red and black sheets overwhelm you, then you can choose to play off the neutral cream tan color in the print and keep the look understated and refined. The cream set has delicate embroidery on the pillowcases as added detail, the sateen sheet set from Target is as soft as soft can be. Either one is a winner.
A dramatic look
If bold and brazen is your style, then by all means dress up the duvet with the Cardinal red Tommy sheets! These sheets are super comfortable and are sure to wash well and get softer after every wash. Another way to bring in drama but to a lesser degree are these really beautiful charcoal sheets. Picking up the grey-black in Ruby Kilim, I think it would be absolutely perfect and as an added bonus will appeal to both sexes!
Pillows: Euro Shams, Standard Shams and Accent Pillows
Euro shams are the first step in achieving the “dressed up ensemble” look for a bed. Stack them against the headboard to create a backdrop for the pillow shams and accent pillows to follow. Coordinating Ruby Kilim euro shams are the obvious choice, but any or all of the red, black and white quilted shams from Sweet and Sour Kids will work. Euro shams work well as accessories too, if too many pillows on the bed is not your style. They make for prefect “on-the-floor” lounging pillows in the bedroom.
All the sheet sets mentioned above come with coordinating pillow shams, but I am all for using the coordinating Ruby Kilim pillow shams with those sheets for a nice mix up. Another fantastic alternative is using our Kilim Noir pillow shams. With the same black and red colors in them, and with a pattern based on similar Kilim rugs, I think they will look smashing!
And finally, we have accent pillows. Little fun quirky squares of color and drama that will add a dash of playfulness to the bed! Choose 2, choose 4 or as many as you want, the more the merrier! But be warned – if you have dogs, trust me, they’ll be burrowing in and out of them!
Don’t be limited by the duvet if a “fall” look is what you are craving. For cool nights the Ruby Kilim bedspread can double up as a cozy coverlet, and on colder nights the quilted bedspreads are perfect.
Do remember, the Ruby Kilim duvet cover can be used with any comforter you are using depending on how cold the night is. And as an added bonus, any of our prints can be made into light comfortable quilts with a cotton lining. All you have to do is place a custom order and specify your requirements!
The complete look
So here it is! A vibrant exotic bedroom imbued in colors that will take warmth and coziness to a whole new level!
