Great in Bed for 20 Years Guest Stylist: Erin Gates of Elements of Style

As the Pine Cone Hill 20th anniversary celebration kicks into high gear, we’ve got a brand-new feature that we’ve been dying to share with you: we’ve invited an exclusive group of design bloggers to be guest bedding stylists, putting together their favorite sheet, duvet, blanket, throw, and decorative pillow combos just for us. This month’s guest stylist is Erin Gates from Elements of Style, whose impeccable eye for mixing the high-end with the hip has kept us tuning in week after week for decorating tips and inspiration.


Of the 2014 Pine Cone Hill collection, Erin, a sought-after interior designer, says, “It’s very easy to mix and match—I could have styled ten different beds, no problem, from the selections. I love the Indian vibe going on in a few of the accent pieces, too! I also adore the dog beds!” Ultimately, she went with a layered mix in ivory, white, putty, and sand tones. “I really love a neutral bed. It’s so soothing and relaxing, which is just what you want your bed to be. You can always add in a colorful throw or a bolder throw pillow  to mix up the look. But keeping the essential pieces neutral is a smart move and one I almost always advise to clients.”

Check out Erin’s dream bedding picks, and don’t forget to pre-order a copy of Erin’s new book, Elements of Style: Designing a Home and a Life!

To celebrate Pine Cone Hill’s 20th anniversary, Annie’s giving away a pair of Varkala Neutral shams to one lucky reader! Check out the Rafflecopter entry form below for 4 easy ways to enter! Contest ends on Thursday, March 27 at 11:59 p.m. EST. View the full details.
