Creating a Quirky Yet Beautiful Bedroom With Nanette Lepore Villa

Disclosure: I was invited by Nanette Lepore to preview her home collection; no compensation was provided and all images were provided by Nanette Lepore unless watermarked. 

Since we moved almost 2 months ago, I still have a bit of analysis paralysis when it comes to home decor. Yes, there's Pinterest and while I've been pinning away there's nothing like actually stepping into a showroom to see and touch inspired pieces for yourself. It really does make a difference! So when I was invited to preview Nanette Lepore's new homegoods line Nanette Lepore Villa, I was excited to see how the designer, known for her bold colors, evocative prints and signature silhouettes would translate her vision into the homegoods space.

Lepore's debut collection will reimagine the unique prints and intricate details of her ready-to-wear designs for the home in a vibrant color palette of cobalt blue, teal, fuchsia and emerald. In partnership with Peking Handicraft, Nanette Lepore Villa will offer bedding and home gift products.

My eyes were immediately drawn to the bold, jewel tones

These gorgeous color combos and textured prints appeal to both men and women!

Of course all of the previewing required delicious treats . . .
The macarons earned me extra points with my Lil Lovebird when I returned home!
During the downtime I enjoyed hearing directly from Nanette about the inspiration for her line, how her family's involved and what it's like launching one's own product line. As a businesswoman (and fellow Ohioan!), I really appreciated her candidness!

Nanette Lepore villa will include comforters/duvets, pillows, sheet sets, coverlets and decorative accessories such as Euro shams and bedskirts with bedding price points ranging from $249 to $299 for a comforter/duvet mini set. The home gift category includes high-end decorative pillows, area rugs, and kitchen products. Decorative pillows retail from $100-$200 while rugs range from $160-$270.

Posing with my favorite set - while I adore the bright colors this is a Mr. Lovebird-safe choice!
Nanette Lepore Villa bedding will be sold at major and regional department stores and the gift line will be available at specialty stores and high-end catalogs in addition to department stores. The collection will be available in stores in January.

Which Nanette Lepore Villa bedding set appeals to you? Is your partner a fan of bold, bright colors and patterns or a fan of neutrals?
