Me as bedding.

Yes, you’re reading that correctly. Let me backtrack.



Y’all know my dearest pal Bailey Quin McCarthy, interior designer, shopowner, blogger, and mom extraordinaire, opened up a store in Houston last fall. Affectionately named Biscuit, the shop offers an original bedding line among other cheeky home goods. Part of the genius behind the bedding is that Bailey found inspiration from her favorite bloggers and named the bedding after them. So when the company launched half a year ago, there was the Katie (Armour of Matchbook Magazine) and the Joanna (Goddard of Cup of Jo), to name a few. And now… drum roll please… there’s the Alaina!



Flattered. Giddy. Surreal. All words floating through my head as I see the print-complete with tiny Eiffel towers and mint and pink confetti (how apropos!)-on an actual bed! It’s kind of hard to see in the pics above since it’s the duvet folded at the foot of the bed, but I’ll have plenty of more photos soon enough! And I’m pretty sure the Alaina, along with all the other new spring lines, will be available online this week or next! I’ll be sure and let you know. And let’s be honest. It’s probably going to fly off the shelves… Who doesn’t love Paris and candy-colored confetti?! No one.




Here’s a detailed photo Bailey sent me a while ago when they were having the sheets printed at the mill in North Carolina. It’s me as bedding!



Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bailey! And congrats!

Congratulations! How amazing is this cute bedding (and totally fitting for you)?! I wonder what I would look like in bedding form… scattered with sequins, I'm sure.

Oh my gosh how awesome! What a genius idea 🙂

I love the Alaina sheets, my boyfriends Mom loves Paris, I feel like these might make a fun gift! But if I buy them, I'm pretty sure they'd end up on my bed instead!

Exciting! The design is so pretty and playful. Your bedding will be a big hit, for sure:) Also pairs perfectly with the Paris print in the shop!
