    Upholstered headboards are a ‘must have” for me in a bedroom.

    I love the look of wood headboards and four poster beds, but nothing beats the creature comfort of an upholstered padded headboard.  All the hours spent watching TV, working on a laptop, reading or whatever else you do in bed…they just make a whole lot of sense.

    I’m slowly adding more headboard shapes to the Jill Sorensen collection.  I tend to treat the designs like a good sofa. You don’t want to go wild on the pattern since you want it to last and stay in style for a long time.

    Here are some new shapes in a few spring colors we just added to www.jillsorensenlifestyle.com.

    This is the Fern FLAVIA Headboard. This is taller than the Pagoda and works in most interiors. Modern as well as classic.

    Now that’s not a very chic blog post title for a design blog.

    But honestly isn’t that pretty much the reality for today’s lifestyle? Whether we have kids, pets, guests or not, a designed space needs to withstand life. When I started out designing I used to be that horrible kind of designer who would put pale silk chairs that you really could not sit in, in the living room. Fast forward a few years and I’m WAY more sensible….(if any of my first clients read this I know you are laughing)

    One of the reasons I wanted to design my own products was to create items that were chic and high on style, yet you can “get down and dirty with them” in lack of a more eloquent description.
    The cotton rugs we make are reversible and completely easy to clean. And that’s a fact!!!  This past Christmas I had put down our cream Monogram  carpet in our TV room in Sweden. My mom had just served Glogg (hot red wine drink with sugar). Before I even take a sip from my filled cup, my nephew chases something and runs right in to me. The  Glogg goes flying ALL OVER THE CREAM CARPET!!!

    Everyone was horrified!  But we simply did what the instructions say (minus the Woolite). We dabbed/rubbed it with some moist towels. And to my complete DELIGHT (and honestly surprise) not a single spot was left!! And it was red wine on a white carpet.

    Mission accomplished. This is a carpet that works for the modern household!

    Therefore I feel the need to share this. No more worrying about kids spilling or pets bringing in messes. And on top of it, you can REVERSE the carpet and use the other side.  I really need to make some videos about this.

    I use a ton of them for private design clients. Can’t wait to add more designs and colorways.

    This Mark Road Trip ($ 525) design was the first one. The colorway above is called Road Trip because it resembles the colors on the road.

    And who can resist a road trip?

    Yellow-Lines-British-Road-Box-Junction-414260

    Yellow lines on asphalt. And nothing can withstand more than that…

    Mark carpets

    It’s a 100% cotton weave. It’s sturdy yet really soft so kids can comfortably play on the floor.

    The MARK-Poseidon $ 525

    This colorway is a dark charcoal with a beautiful dark ocean aqua so we adequately named is Poseidon..

    wrath_of_poseidon_by_uysaltimsah-d3do83i

    Like a dark beautiful ocean that conquers all. Yes… have to give everything fun names.

    I love seeing how people style their bedrooms. And I get an even bigger kick out of seeing how people style their bedrooms when it includes Jill Sorensen bedding.

    I came upon a picture on Instagram a couple of weeks ago that totally made me smile.

    Los Angeles fashion blogger and stylist Devon Rachel posted a pic of her bedroom with Jill Sorensen Black Key Bedding with some seriously adorable styling!

    Had to include a couple of more pics from her living room.

    SofaStyle5

    Reminds me what a great color combination green and black is. And graphics and florals will never go out of style.

    Please send me your pictures if you have styled your bedroom with our bedding, I would love to share your style on the blog.  And if you want to -follow along on INSTAGRAM@JILLSORENSEN.
