#InBedBy10, My Cozy Spring Bed

#InBedBy10, My Cozy Spring Bed

The other day someone asked me "what I use for bedding because it always looks so cozy?" Believe it or not, our bed is my absolute favorite place in the house which is why it is important to me to have cozy, quality and refreshing bedding ALL THE TIME! I love feeling like I'm sleeping in a king size Hilton Hotel bed...and that is exactly what I like to create in our bedroom. BUT most importantly, my bed is where I unwind and it is the place that prepares me for tomorrow - so cozy is a must.

Cstudio Home asked me if I wanted to be part of their #InBedBy10 sweepstakes campaign...what is it all about you ask? I asked the same... "Strong women need their rest to conquer the day, and as a bedding company we want to be here to give you those much needed ZZZ’s, without sacrificing your personal style or comfort" is what they told me the concept was and immediately I said "YES, I want to be a part of this 100%!" 

I am so excited to partner with them and help ONE OF YOU win a $300 gift card to CStudio Homea $200 gift card to Stowaway Cosmetics and a complete mave shaving system (because you not only need a good night's sleep to conquer the day, but handy beauty products when you're on the go as well).

I immediately felt like I was a perfect fit because as a full time nurse, wife and now mom to be I think I AM a strong woman and I ABSOLUTELY need all the ZZZ's I can get. And for those that know me, know how much style and design matters to me - I can't stand living in a space that is unkept, inconsistent and boring. Comfort is #1, we recently upgraded our mattress which opened all the doors to needing new bedding - I LOVE new things - haha, I mean any excuse to shop right? 

When I tell you that our Cstudio Home organic sheet set IS EXACTLY what creates that Hilton Hotel King bed feeling I am NOT making this up. A lot of people ask  why I like to use white sheets - because I have a husband and a dog and soon a spitting up baby boy...WHITE is so easily bleached - which is the best. Besides white goes with everything, brightens the room and is a "color" is soothing and brings comfort.

My bedding style for Spring

When Cstudio Home launched their new spring line, I was so excited but had a really difficult time deciding what "style" to choose for our bedroom and our new home. Most of you know we recently bought a new house and my style has shifted a bit, and as always I am confused but I think I know what it is...I like to call it Modern Farmhouse with traditional and vintage touches. I am really drawn to clean, whites,  blacks, sharp edges but soft finishes. Adding blue IS HUGE for me - remember when I lived in life full of no color? - haha. The bedding I chose for our spring room is the Woodcut Medallion Comforter set. Oh and I can't forget to mention...THROW PILLOWS - my one true decor love, THESE are my favorite from Cstudio Home.
