How often do you switch things up around your home? Are you someone who hasn’t painted a wall or purchased new curtains in ages, or are you someone like me who likes to changes things up every couple of years?
Maybe its the Gemini in me, but I get bored with thing quickly – including home decor, wall colors and furniture. Needless to say my husband is not too keen on indulging my whims by repainting rooms. Thankfully I haven’t had the urge to repaint a room in a long time – except the bathroom. We bough paint for the bathroom going on four years now and he has yet to paint it.
We live in a teeny, tiny condo. There is only so much space to do things. Adding and/or replacing furniture is not that easy to do, so I usually focus on home decor items (lamps, decorations, throw pillows…) rather than furniture. Trust me, if replacing furniture was that easy I’d have a new desk by now.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to make changes in your home. Even the slightest things like rearranging furniture placement or adding a colorful throw rug can really make a difference.
I tend to go for colorful things. I think color makes things happier and more “people friendly.”
When was the last time you replaced your bedding? Not even for aesthetics, it’s probably a good idea to replace your bedding every few years to keep it looking good. Time and use can wear away at the fabrics making them look dull and gross. Plus age and use can make things less soft.
My husband and I are forced to sleep on a sofa bed in the living room. We don’t have enough bedrooms so we made the sacrifice to give up our room.
I won’t even begin to tell you how uncomfortable sleeping on a sofa bed for the past 15+ years has been. Not only that, sofa beds are no pretty to look at. That is unless you add some colorful and comfortable bedding.
Bedding can’t help with the thin mattress and that darn bar that digs into your back at night – but it can make looking at an ugly sofa bed better.
We swapped out our old bedding for the Alegria 7 piece Comforter Set by VITA Good Life. VITA Good Life is a new brand that recently launched.
Rios Clementi Hale Studios, the Los Angeles based award-winning multidisciplinary design firm, has just launched VITA Good Life – a brand born to spread happiness, with designs that celebrate the power of bold colors, patterns, and creativity.
“We created VITA to celebrate the multi-cultural fabric that makes up our native Los Angeles,” shares Mark Rios, Founding Partner, Rios Clementi Hale Studios.
The line has launched with 6 affordable bedding designs; 3 comforter sets and 3 quilts sets. The comforter sets include 7-pieces – 1 comforter, 2 shams, 3 decorative pillows, and 1 bed skirt. The quilt sets include 3-pieces – 1 quilt and 2 shams. The comforters and the quilts are both reversible and feature bold patterns in vivid hues inspired by the lush flora of the tropics, the seductive colors of the Mediterranean, and the vibrant spirit of Los Angeles.
“Our exciting new VITA fashion bedding line was introduced to several key retailers at the recent New York Home Fashions Market. They universally embraced the concept enthusiastically and noted it’s fresh universal appeal. We expect to have strong distribution across major market regions for Spring 2017 and an expanded offering available for the Fall season,” adds Bob Moran, EVP Sales & Merchandising, Inovatex.
The Alegria Comforter set that we have was inspired by classic Latin art and architecture. The set includes decorative pillows that add bursts of color and texture to complete the look.
I love this set! Not only is the comforter super soft and snuggly, but it’s also kept it’s shape very well. In the past we’ve had comforters that end up going flat after you wash them and use them a while. So far, so good with this comforter. It’s just as wonderful as it was the first day we used it.
I LOVE the colors and patterns in this set too. It’s very cheery. I love colorful things.
The throw pillow are awesome. When not in use we put them on our couch to add a pop of color. Our couch is navy blue, so it really needed the pop of color that it gets from this set.
It’s hard to tell from the photos but the small rectangular pillow has tassels on all four corners.
For some reason the round pillow is my family’s favorite. Someone is usually lying their head on it or snuggling with it.
Because this set is so colorful I don’t see why it couldn’t work in just about any bedroom. This set is good for adults as well as children and teens. I think it appeals to all age groups.
VITA Good Life comforter sets are available in Twin, Full/Queen, King, and Cal King sizes. Retail prices range from $59.99-$79.99.
