I’ve been SO excited to share our guest room bedding update with y’all! Mainly because it means I get introduce y’all to one of my blogger bestie’s {who’s a total girl boss} pillow shop. Emma and I met shortly after I started blogging and have been great friends since. She is just about the sweetest person ever and is SO incredibly talented. You can find her blog, Defined Design here. She’ll have you inspired to update different spaces around your home ever week! Just to give you a little preview of what I’m talking about, two recent posts I love, DIY JUJU Hat and How to Find the Right Sofa

Late last year, Emma, Morgan, Courtney and myself connected to collaborate and share Emma’s pillows from her fabulous Etsy Pillow Shop. So today we are all sharing pillows designed specifically for us by Emma. We are also all styling this pillow to showcase three ways to do so! Be sure to head over to Morgan and Courtney‘s blogs to see their pillows + stylings.

Previous to the bedding you see in today’s post, we had a white duvet cover, white sheets, and a couple white/ivory throw pillows.   Joshua and I wanted to add some additional colors to liven up the space. Plus, I wanted it to tie into the rest of our house a little more. Therefore, we opted for a base of white + ivory with shades of blue, pink, and added a little green + grey for Joshua. 

Part of that white base is addition our white quilt + quilt shams. Which I am over the moon about. As simple as they are, these are two items that have been on my bedroom wish list FOREVER! I love the look of a crisp white quilt at the end of a bed. It adds the perfect cozy touch.

Both of the items are from Crane & Canopy, an online bedding brand that offers luxury bedding and towels, without the department store markup. Aside from perfectly crisp white quilts + shams, Crane & Canopy offers a variety of colorful patterns to luxurious solids and textures. I promise, once you lay eyes on their colorful pieces you’ll be inspired to spice your bedding up! 

Although I did opted for a white quilt, specifically their Cloud Soft White Quilt. This quilt +shams are stitched from 100% long-staple cotton and free of toxins and synthetic finishes. Which I love!! The quilt is perfect for year around, pull it up for extra warmth in the winter and keep it at the end of the bed during warmer months.

The grey we added for Joshua came in the form of a grey duvet cover from Authenticity 50, a premium American bedding line {our white sheet set is also from them}. And by that, I mean they are 100% Made in the USA. Every single component of their product {from their cotton, to their fabric, to their boxes, tags, buttons and packaging} are 100% made in the USA. How incredible is that?

Aside from that fact, I also LOVE that they have skipped the chemically-laden wrinkle-free treatments; aka no sleeping on toxins! I am ALL about going as clean as possible with as many things I possibly can. So I was thrilled to hear this! You may find them having a few more wrinkles than your other sheets but I’ll take a couple wrinkles over carcinogens any day!

One more amazing thing about this brand and their items, you get the sheets directly from their factory floor, meaning the prices are better. Their items start at $139 vs. the $300+ you find at fancy boutiques. A total win!

So there you have it, our guest room bedding update! Including some of my favorite brands for updating a bedroom. Now, I’ll be wishing I could play guest at our own house, snuggled up in this bed!
