Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall White Bedroom Linens

Daniel VanHall “The Design Escort” and co-owner of Shields & Company Interiors shares a fantastic bedroom in the heart of New York City done with chic white bedding. No matter what style or color scheme your room is you will always make a good impression with all white. A bed takes up a lot of expensive real estate so it must look good and be comfortable. The look can be achieved on any budget by shopping economically at Bed Bath & Beyond or at higher end custom shops like Casa Del Bianco where Daniel put together this beautiful all Italian linen bed ensemble with white sheets, white quilted coverlet and white duvet cover and pillow cases with an elegant blue stitched detailing.

A Few Favorite Things To Inspire Any Interior Design Project

Daniel VanHall, “The Design Escort”, and co-owner of Shields & Company Interiors shares some of his favorite inspirations:

Crystals on Chandeliers and tassels on pillows

Silk mohair sofas and bright gilded mirrors

Herringbone wood floors and wool Persian rugs

Light colored limestone on fireplace mantels

Crisp white linens on four poster king beds

Chinoiserie wallpaper lavish with birds

These are few of my favorite things


Foyers with white and black polished marbles

Vintage antiques and vases with flowers  

Windows with lush drapery and views
