Great in Bed for 20 Years Guest Stylist: Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita

Modern sophistication. Effortless elegance. Timelessly tasteful design with a splash of color and glamour. What other superlatives could we heap on interior designer and blogger Paloma Contreras? We could count the ways we love her style all the way into the New Year, so instead we’ll just tell you how over the moon we are to have her on board as our latest guest bedding stylist for the Pine Cone Hill 20th anniversary.

Paloma, who was just named one of House Beautiful’s “Next Wave” of design stars, put together this exclusive bedroom look that’s a contemporary take on the classics. She says, “My bedroom is my sanctuary where I go to rest and recharge, so I don’t like a ton of color or pattern when it comes to my bedding. For winter, I want a crisp, clean palette of white and soft grey.” So with the white/grey palette as her foundation, she put the emphasis on texture and detail—crisp white cotton sheets with embroidered hems, a slate matelassé coverlet and shams in two different, dimensional weaves, and a tailored bed skirt and duvet cover (over a lofty down duvet insert) with dressmaker pleats. Of the latter, Paloma notes, “I am really loving the detail on the Pleated Linen duvet and bed skirt. It’s a versatile, neutral way of adding interest to timeless bedding.”

Paloma topped off the bed with a spectacular wool decorative pillow with metallic embellishments—a nod to her glamorous signature style, and a bit of ethnic-inspired visual interest. With such an understated bed, she was able to go full-on bold with the area rug, choosing an exquisite tufted wool with a graphic pattern rendered in a medium grey and ivory. The effect is easy yet upscale, comfortable yet luxurious, and something we could dive into night after night.
