To say that we—color-crazy home decorating aficionados that we are—have been huge fans of the House of Turquoise blog for several years would be an understatement. We’ve eagerly looked forward to tastemaker Erin Olson Moser’s daily posts on all things crisp, cool, coastal, and holy-cow fabulous, and that feature one of our all-time favorite pops of color. So with a dull, drab, mostly colorless winter in full swing in the Northeast, we knew just who to call to kick off our annual series of guest-styled posts.
Erin put together this lighthearted bedding look because, she says, “I wanted something that makes me happy, and this mix of colors and patterns definitely puts a smile on my face.” She was immediately drawn to the Lyric Paisley duvet cover, which features an intricate, Indian-inspired pattern bursting with bold brights like fuchsia, lemon, tangerine, and, of course, turquoise. When she discovered that most of the same hues were front and center on this gorgeous printed sheet set, she couldn’t resist the peppy pairing. We can’t get enough of how incredible the two patterns look together.
To break up all that pattern, Erin added in a trio of whites: a unique wave-textured matelassé coverlet, cotton hemstitch pillowcases, and a gauzy linen wisp of a bed skirt. That allowed her to layer in more color, including a kitten-soft lace throw in summery azalea, Euro pillows in the same low-maintenance cotton paisley as the duvet, and a pair of modern turquoise—are you sensing a theme?—matelassé shams. “Soft, beautiful fabrics; fun, happy colors; and crisp, classic staples—really something for everyone!” Erin notes.
The pinks, blues, and tangerine are echoed in the bold stripe of the woven cotton rug, which instantly brightens the pale walls and trim of the room. Erin also tucked a braided jute pouf in the corner, which can not only double as extra seating in other rooms when needed, but also makes the perfect boost into a high bed, or a footstool for putting on slippers or shoes in the morning.
As for her approach to decorating this season, Erin explains, “Here in Minnesota, winters are long and miserable. I need to be surrounded by color more than ever right now, as a reminder that spring will soon be here! I’m planning to switch out my cozier fall and winter accessories for bright, happy-hued ones. I love having a neutral foundation to work with in my home; it makes it easy to switch things up every season.”
