New Year’s Resolution—Get More Sleep!

At Company C, we love color. And we love the mix… layers of colors and patterns that come together effortlessly and not too “matchy”. Whatever your style, we have the bedding layers you’ll need to design your own oasis, and a place to retreat as winter takes hold. Here are our top five layering tips, sure to entice you to keep that resolution to get more sleep!

  1. Select sheets that reflect your personal style—percale or sateen. Some prefer cotton percale’s crisp cool feel, while others love cotton sateen for its softer, smoother hand. Either way, we use only 100% GOTS certified organic cotton to create our luxurious solid and printed bedding so you can sleep more soundly.

2. Add warmth and texture with cotton matelasses. These heavily-stitched “blanket” layers are a nice way to add lightweight warmth. Select a matelasse color to accent your sheets or to anchor any other elements you add to your bedding design.

3. Layer on a duvet cover or quilt, or both…for warmth and contrast. Quilts and duvet covers are your bed’s topcoat, and highlight everything underneath. Duvet covers encase a down, cotton or poly-filled comforter. Duvet covers can be used without a top sheet—where the duvet cover is washed with the fitted sheet. Like our European ancestors, this is a great way to stay warm while keeping bed layering simple. A quilt is used with a full set of sheets, where the flat sheet protects the quilt from frequent laundering.

4. Pile on the pillows…watch them bring everything together! We love European squares in the back to anchor the pillows and shams (and to prop yourself up for pre-slumber reading). Pillows create visual interest between your sheets and all your top-of-bed elements. Decorative pillows that contrast with your bedding placed near the front of the cases and shams add dimension. Position them as you like, there are no rules…use concepts of symmetry only if they apply to you. For even more visual interest and warmth, add a complementing throw.

5. Remember to conceal the box spring to keep your bed from being woefully underdressed. Our Waterfall linen chambray bed panels come in six shades that coordinate with all our bedding and are oh-so-easy to attach to box spring. It’s a tailored finish that will compliment your style!

Coolest Treehouse Ever Built
Friday, January 9 at 10:00 p.m.

A haute cuisine restaurateur couple in Portland, Maine, have been dreaming of adding a Pete Nelson treehouse to their idyllic property for the past 20 years. These tastemakers are also close to Pete’s family – they live right next door to Pete’s sister, Molly. Living in a one-room yurt on their property, the couple has lots of fun entertaining friends, but is yearning for some privacy. Pete swoops to the rescue, building a sleek, gorgeous, modern bedroom in the trees. This slumber nest will nestle 19 feet high in the air in a grove of eastern hemlocks and white pines, with a bridge that connects the yurt’s deck, providing easy access for sleepyheads. He goes above and beyond, packing this floating suite full of firsts: a breathtaking copper roof, a towering rooftop crow’s nest, and a giant wall of windows that opens up to the outdoors just like a garage door, revealing a breathtaking treetop, New England view – Pete’s coolest treehouse ever built!

We are so Cookin’ with Marsala!

Just last week, I made a prediction here in the office that Pantone’s color of the year would be in the red family. We’ve been seeing red coming on strong in fashion and other products in the market.

Though I don’t drink Marsala, I do use it in cooking often! We’ve been mixing this shade with other red varietals including deep burgundy and loving the outcome. Marsala also looks gorgeous with shades of spicy orange, golds, and even pops of teal.

We introduced a few designs with accents of red this past season. For our Spring 2015, we developed more red designs including our fresh Exotica Collection that we launched recently at the International Home Furnishing Market in High Point, North Carolina. Our Oasis rug from this collection features a smoky red, similar in tone to Marsala, paired with a deep burgundy and gold accents on a driftwood ground. Red pillows and other accents in velvets, linens and cottons coordinate beautifully with this palette.

Enjoy a glass of Marsala and a full year of seeing red.
