Faye hasn’t slept in her bedroom for months. When we replaced the windows and drywall and added the closet in our bedroom, Chris and I slept in Faye’s room, and Faye slept in Greta’s room. Then, we replaced the window in Faye’s room and restructured the turret and she slept in Greta’s room again. Our six-year-old is probably the most patient human I know. Every night, as we tucked her in, she asked about her room and when she’d be able to sleep in her “princess bed.” Wait… what was that? What would make it a “princess” bed?
So, recently when her walls were finally insulated and her new window was in, and everything was patched, we went to work and came up with a plan!
Four Poster Bed
Wide Stripe Sham
Rani Cotton Patchwork Euro Sham
Cuddle & Kind Doll
Narrow Stripe Fitted Sheet
Lace Velvet Flat Sheet
Narrow Stripe Pillowcases
Dot Cotton Blanket
We knew we had to make her bed special — that was her dream. We found this 4 poster bed that reminded me of something Anna from Frozen would sleep in, put it together and layered on all the sweet bedding from The Company Store we could while she was at school one day.
I love that The Company Store is a heritage brand: They have so many beautiful mix-and-match pieces that layer well and last forever.
The layers, patterns, and palette in the bedding are a great jump-off point and really inspiring us with the rest of the room. I actually chose the Rani Cotton Patchwork Euro Shams first. The vintage florals feel cottage-y and sweet (and princess like), and the warm colors feel feminine and not too “little girl.” This is bedding we know could grow with Faye — and honestly, layer onto any bed in our home.
The Lace Velvet Flannel Flat Sheet is velvety soft and I love the scalloped lace border folded over their Legends Hotel Supima Cotton Wrinkle-Free Sateen Duvet Cover in white.
We went with the Narrow Strip Company Cotton Yarn-Dyed Percale Fitted Sheet and matching Pillowcases.
The OP Dot Cotton Blanket we folded at the bottom of the bed, brings a great graphic neutral and textural fringe that feels fun — I can’t get enough of it.
Clearly this room still needs work, but we’re going to let the bedding be the design anchor that helps us to choose paint colors and other finishes for this room. Maybe a putty pink pulled from the sheets or golden yellow? Or something like a warm blue contrast trim to coordinate with the back of the shams.
We’re excited to see where this takes us and our little Faye Faye.

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
