Custom Bedding

Custom bedding seems like it would be a luxury but it’s actually quite affordable. And, once you go custom, you won’t go back to ready-made anymore. Choosing the style and fabric and trims you want make the possibilities almost endless!

Don’t forget about the headboard. Upholstered headboards are a nice alternative to wood headboards. There are many styles to choose from. The headboard in this photo it tufted and has small covered buttons.
