Where to buy bedding to recreate a hotel look?

More and more I've been noticing that hotels have been moving away from those outdated quilted, floral patterned bed spreads that completely cover the bed to crisp white linens with a white (or light colored) lightweight blanket and then a colorful runner by the foot of the bed that extends from one side to the other. Sometimes the beds are also decorated with extra cylindrical throw pillows that coordinate with the runner.

We're redecorating our bedroom and would like to mimic that new look... but where does one find those runners and lightweight bedding? I haven't checked everywhere yet but the 2 stores I've looked in only have the bed-in-a-bag type things. I have no idea where to start looking. Any ideas?

restorationhardware.com has some gorgeous bed linens, but they're pricey. They have the "white with piping" hotel look, but not sure if they have what you're looking for.

I haven't ever seen the bed runners for sale but they would be easy to make if you can sew at all.

For the bedding, most hotels use down (or down alternative) comforters with duvet covers. Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, and Crate and Barrel are good places to look. You can look at West Elm also (under same ownership as Pottery Barn) if you are looking for a slightly more modern version.

I haven't really seen a hotel with just a white blanket, but I'm sure those websites will have a white quilt if that is what you're after.

In Atlanta I stayed at a Hampton Inn, it had the thin white blanket on top rather than a heavy comforter/duvet.

Check hotel websites, a lot of them a releasing their own line of bedding. Some of them even partner with mattress companies. Disney even has their own line of linens.

Do you have a TJ Maxx or Homegoods near you?

I prefer separates to the bed-in-the-bag thing. I think you can get a much better, more sophisticated look, with some variation, for much less than you'd spend on one of those things with the giant comforters and cheap fabric.

The runner on the end of the bed, btw, is usually a quilt or blanket folded in half and then triple folded (with the top and bottom on the inside) and laid across. It's functional, just a way to fold it for a look.

I pick a couple different colours, or a suite of colours - like if you like the crisp white look, you might do a basic, nice set of white sheets (with a good thread count - Target doesn't have bad ones for a decent price either, for basic colours). Then decide what to go with.

Or you can do toned solids, or a solid/pattern mix. Just go more subtle - like a blue with a white with a subtle blue pattern you like about the same shade, or a set of white and a set of a crisp light lemon yellow solid.

Then hunt for blankets.

I've found great stuff at TJ Maxx, Homegoods, some basic throws on clearance at Target, etc.

Then mix them up - make the bed with a mix of pillows, maybe two big, really nice white shams, and contrast the flat and fitted sheet. Then do the bed up with the other stuff.

The bonus of this approach, imo, is that you can find all the pieces that you really like, you can get better quality, and it's much more changeable. Change with the seasons, your attitude, etc.

This isn't the best example, it's sortof sloppy looking but I was looking for yellow, heh.



Or like this has the pattern accents (shams and skirt) but solid duvet and white sheets - with that you could do a duvet and cases or shams in another colour in the pattern, or a white duvet and tan sheets, etc.



This may be fluffier than you want but if you just want white, I'd still look in those stores - or look for clearance in a good store. Bloomingdale's has good stuff, and you can find good deals on sale, Nordstrom's, Neiman's too.

Overstock.com

And oddly enough, we get great comments about a microsuede (microfiber?) quilt we got from Walmart.com of all places. I think its all the detailed stitching on it. Solid sage color. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Greenland-...-Sage/16884328

This site has the bedding from many hotels.

http://www.pacificpillows.com/

The Hilton's pillows are the most comfortable I've ever slept on.

I just looked at the Pacific Pilllows website.
I've never slept with one, but that Hilton Down Blanket (blanket, not comforter) sounds wonderful!!!!

To the OP, if you are not used to down... be aware... it is very lightweight, but it is HOT.

We have a fairly light-weight down comforter-blanket, and it is almost October, we still can't sleep under it!

That Hilton Down Blanket looks so thin and light and comfortable!
Looks like what was on our bed on the Ruby Princess cruise a couple years ago.

The runners are called bed scarves. If you Google that you should get a few options.

Like a pp said, many hotels have a website that sells the bedding.

Here is the one for marriott:

I'm not entirely sure the blankets were always white, I guess what I should've emphasized was just that the blankets weren't overly heavy or fluffy. DH and I usually aren't all that into white, we've always enjoyed colors and patterns, etc. but lately we really admire the more simple yet sophisticated looks of the way hotels beds are made up so we figured maybe we should just mimic what they do!
