In general, we subscribe to the belief that less is more. Except when it comes to quilts. If you see a quilt at a flea market, buy it. If your mother-in-law makes you one, accept it.

These just make so much sense. A footboard that doubles as a display for your favorite handmade quilt? Yes, please! Snag this one over on , courtesy of EuroFair.
As anyone who loves wallpaper can tell you, once you fall down the wallpaper rabbit hole, there's no coming back. We're ticked pink to see this decorative staple get the comeback that it deserves — and to see bedrooms the world over awash in warm prints and welcoming patterns.
