Today's post is the last in my week-long series on wedding registries. See my first post here, second one here and third one here.
I am obsessed with creating a bedroom and bathroom that is a shangri la of comfort and quality. In fact, I have spent years collecting sheets, towels and comforters to make both rooms feel like heaven. After all, you spend most of your time there, right? That said, bedroom and bathroom essentials should be a major part of your registry and here are my favorite picks.
May seem like an easy area to skimp, but this memory foam mattress pad transforms an old tired bed into pure bliss. $60 - $100
A perfect registry splurge, this nail trim headboard is a great for propping yourself up in bed with the sunday paper. $449 - $799
Simple, sophisticated and chic, these swiss dot shams and comforter cover will look great for years to come. $24 - $139
Trust me on this, I have done the field testing: Garnett Hill has the softest, most beautifully colored towels to suit any style and and soothe any skin. I particularly recommend the oversized bath sheets, since they envelope you in warm comfort. $14.50 - $48
Laying on crisp clean sheets goes a long way to creating a good night's sleep. I love the little monogram and stripe detail on these from West Elm. $24.99 - $99.99
A good throw pillow can do wonders for making a bed look put together and adding a splash of color in a room. The Etsy store Skinny Laminx has some amazing options; I own this "herd" pillow and have been drooling over this drawn dot pillow. $35.70 each.
Just as pillows can add some sass and fun to the bedroom, a pretty shower curtain can make a big statement in the bathroom. Marimekko has tons of fun patterns and color combinations. The red/pink colorway is now sold out, but you can get others here. $69
Lastly, like the cherry or fudge sauce on the top of a sundae, a high quality cozy comforter can totally transform a bed from pleasant to decadent. I have used these Company Store comforters for years and love the fact that you can buy them in different warmth levels to switch out for summer, spring or winter. $87 - $199
