I have so much respect for textile designers, they have the ability to bring shapes and color together for a perfect composition. These very inspiring textiles are from Sang and Serena, a textile and furniture company based in Virginia. Although the general vibe feels very traditional they colors are timeless and rich.

Sleeping is one of those beautiful things in life I look forward to every single day. I rest, dream and feel recharged after a good night of sleep. I found this cool bedding set by WeSC last week.
