Sweet white sugar, warm vanilla and the elaborate scrolling of royal icing on a cake…. imagine that same sparkling elegance brought to life in an opulent white-on-white cotton bedspread or duvet! Our Vanilla Glacé collection, ethereal and romantic, is hand blocked in a timeless ogee pattern. Draped in a bedspread across your bed, the white block will shimmer against an ivory ground. Pair it with rich, chocolatey bedsheets underneath, and the frosted pattern will just glow.
I am so excited to bring Vanilla Glacé to the bedroom! Many of us view our bedrooms as a retreat, and a peaceful place of reflection, rest, romance and dreams. Vanilla Glacé embodies all of that. Choose from a bedspread, a cotton duvet, pillow shams and large, modern euro shams. Use these pristine white linens to create the romantic bedroom you’ve been dreaming of, and to anchor all of your exotic, unique decor.
We like confectionary colors for our Vanilla Glacé sheeting. This print looks beautiful along with tones like chocolate, caramel, latté, gold and cream. Try a couple sets if you’d like, and change the sheets to change your mood!
Pillows: Euro Shams, Traditional Shams and Accent Pillows
Once that is in place, add the matching pillow shams. If you like earthy neutrals, the Crate and Barrel sham will not only highlight the gold threads of Vanilla Glacé, but also bring warmth to the bedroom.
Start by bringing texture with this interesting “Dimensional Petal” pillow from Grandin Road. We like the cream pillow best for Vanilla Glacé, but there are other colors available, both muted and bright, that would each bring a unique look to your room. Throw in a generous sprinkling of other accent pillows to keep things lively and creative.
Bedskirts work in the same palette as sheets. Do a little mix and match, or go with a chic single color look. Amity Home makes a sumptuous bedskirt in muted gold which would add just the right amount of polish and glamour to your bed. We think you’ll like that. A softly shimmering white bedskirt creates subtle interest: you can find the lovely one below at Pine Cone Hill. The Dune Bedskirt from Posh Livingpulls in Vanilla Glacé’s gold in an elegant fashion.
Window Curtains and Wall Treatments
Whether you love the morning sunlight streaming in your windows (I do!), or like to keep the bedroom dark and sleep-inducing, we’ve got the curtains for you! Our Vanilla Glacé hand printed curtains are sheer cotton. They will soften the light, but still allow a warm glow to enter the room.
We suggest the Gold Crinkle Colchester Curtain from Amazon if you want a more opaque curtain. The light, hammered gold tone will be lovely paired with a Vanilla Glacé duvet or bedspread.
If you choose to paint your bedroom, we think either a warm gold or a rich cream will look lovely. Goldtone from Benjamin Moore is a very popular color. Trim it with cream rather than bright white for subtle sophistication. Play with the creams in Vanilla Glacé by using the delicious sounding Swiss Cream, also from Benjamin Moore. The result will be a bedroom that is extremely soothing, calm and welcoming.
Consider adding this Moroccan style side table to your Vanilla Glacé bedroom décor. Its color makes it understated, but the shape makes it unique and noteworthy. I just love this little piece, and am pleasantly surprised that it can be found at Home Depot!
Do you like the headboard in our bedroom photos? If you do, you’re in luck, because it is readily available from Amazon! It may not be clear from the photos, but this is actually a velvet headboard – luxurious! – trimmed in nailhead.
Accessories and Scents
Nothing makes a room “yours” more than the little touches – don’t you think? For ambiance, we heartily recommend a long lasting, clean burning Vanilla Soy candle from Pure Integrity. You’ll “feel” the experience of Vanilla Glacé once you’ve lit this luminary and take in its warm, sensual aroma.
Add light and a bit of global romance with this shabby-glam distressed mirror from Shades of Light. Wouldn’t this would look wonderful hung opposite your Vanilla Glacé window? It will reflect sunshine and candlelight equally well.
Of course, our final touch is the enigmatic Pegasus. He takes his place well in the bedroom, where he reminds us of dreams and romance. This Pegasus figurine is available from Pier 1.
Putting it all Together…
