Quilts aren’t just functional items designed to keep you warm on chilly nights. They’re also works of history and art – in fact, many museums throughout the U.S. and other countries feature patchwork quilts on their walls. While comforters and duvets are getting a lot of attention in the bedding world these days, there’s something special about snuggling up with a quilt that is not too warm and not too cold. At Latest Bedding, we’re passionate about providing our customers with a wide array of bedding choices by all the top designer brands. Read on to learn about the many Donna Sharp quilts currently available online and discover why quilts are such a popular form of home decor and have been for many years.
A premier bedding brand, Donna Sharp supplies exceptionally crafted, aesthetically pleasing quilts and quilted handbags to a wide range of customers. A fifth generation quilter, Sharp learned the art of quilting from her mother. Since the early 1980s, she’s been designing and sewing quilts made with hand-chosen fabrics and an array of colors. Over the years, she’s won acclaim for both her craft and the ways in which she mixes colors to create stunning works of historical art. Additionally, customers appreciate the fact that Donna Sharp quilts tend to feature twice the stitch rate of other hand-stitched items. The end result is greater strength, durability, and beauty. There’s a reason that Latest Bedding is proud to count Donna Sharp as one of the brand-name designers featured in our online store.
There are various reasons to incorporate quilts into your home decorating. One of the biggest benefits quilts have over other types of bedding is that they add a warm, cozy feeling to your space. Thanks to the texture, pattern, and colors, quilts can make even the coldest space feel soft and soothing. They’re also great for adding interest to more neutral furniture and decor without overwhelming an area.
Additionally, quilts are great for tying in multiple colors with one bedding article. Can’t choose a single shade for your space? Have a lot of accessories in different colors and styles? Typically featuring a wide selection of hues, quilts are great for those who appreciate life with a little color. Use the quilt as your main blanket or fold one at the foot of the bed to add visual interest. You can even drape quilts over an armchair or chaise lounge or hang them on a wall or quilt rack.
Of course the benefits of quilts go beyond the aesthetic. They also offer plenty of advantages when it comes to comfort. Quilts are ideal for hot sleepers, as they don’t have the heft and bulk of a comforter or duvet. Because the layers of a quilt are each made of a light, breathable fabric, you don’t have to worry about getting too warm in the night. On the other hand, if you like using multiple layers of blankets, adding a quilt to your current collection can be just the thing on cool nights.
If you’re dreaming of getting away from the hustle and bustle, a night in a cabin might sound like just the thing to help you relax and recharge. While you might not be able to take a vacation right now, incorporating some cabin-style decor into your bedroom can go a long way toward helping you feel your best without leaving home. Rustic and welcoming, cabin-inspired bedding inspires you to sink in and take a load of. Here are some tips from Latest Bedding on bringing the cabin theme into your master:
When you think of a cabin, you likely picture log walls and brown artificial wood interiors. However, modern cabin-style decor tends to be a bit lighter and more whimsical. We recommend avoiding dark paint hues like brown and black in favor of airy neutrals such as white, ivory, and pale gray. As a bonus, doing this allows the bright colors in your quilt to take center stage in the room.
If you’re trying cabin decor for the first time, you might be tempted to include a lot of patterns. While geometric quilts add fun and interest to a space, too many patterns in the furniture and bedding can come across as overwhelming. We recommend sticking to solid shades and soothing prints when going for this aesthetic.
Because cabins already have a preponderance of wood, we recommend avoiding wood furniture in favor of other options. Think beds made of steel or brass and fabric-covered chairs and couches. The goal is to avoid the wood-on-wood look while playing with texture in a new and exciting way.
The heart and soul of your cabin-inspired bedroom, a quilt adds both comfort and visual interest to the space. Ultimately, there’s no right or wrong choice when it comes to selecting a quilt. Instead, shoppers should consider both the pattern and the colors and decide what speaks to them as an individual. The results may surprise you.
