Hopefully, this special season finds you and your family nestled all snug in your beds. As you take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, take a look around your bedroom. Is it a place you can settle in for a really relaxing long winter’s nap? Or is your room the last place you or anyone else in your house wants to be? If the latter is true for you, rest assured, you are not alone. Most people put their bedrooms last on Santa’s list.

Yes, when it’s time to redesign a room or upgrade an area, it seems that folks want to work on almost every part the house other than the bedroom first. The kitchen and family rooms are the most popular and used the most, so they are always done and redone before the bedrooms. Guests and visitors are told to “make themselves at home” upon entering every area in the house, except the bedrooms.

I have a friend whose guest bedroom gets so cluttered during the holiday season, she has resorted to putting a wreath on the door with a sign that reads “Don’t Open Until Christmas,” and she has given strict orders to her husband if anything happens to her, he is not to let people see how awful that bedroom looks.

Bedrooms should be private, restful nests where you can retreat at the end of the day. After all, you can’t really relax with a stack of books the size of your nightstand and a pile of rejected outfit options piled on your exercise bicycle staring back at you.

Recently, at the High Point Market, I was inspired by the new color and pattern introductions. Hopefully, our premium bedding lines featured in the photographs will inspire you to create a blissful, relaxing sanctuary for yourself or your guests.

It only takes one inspiration to help you realize your dream (I started my dream room with a fabulous bed by Hickory Chair). We are the place for you to start your next project, glide right into the New Year, and you will not keep the door closed. You will invite everyone to see what a fabulous haven you have created, we promise. We have the latest and greatest fabric samples for perusal.
