Siesta Quilts + Style Notes

16 Feb, 2024

Our Siesta bedding collection

We love quilts. Quilts are such versatile layering pieces for your bed which can be used in every season. Whether crafted from classic cotton, sumptuous velvet or linen, a quilt is the perfect finishing touch for every beautiful bed. Our Siesta quilts and pillowcases are made from yarn dyed cotton with an incredibly soft hand feel. A reversible design in green or blue, the quintessential stripes perfectly capture a classic coastal feel, for wherever you call home. Style with a crisp cotton sheet for the warmer months and layer over your duvet in the cooler months. Our Siesta bedding collection is available in quilts and matching standard and European pillowcases. Read on to discover our quilt styling tips, how to style the colours of our Siesta quilts and more.


5 tips for styling quilts

Tip 1: Style at the end of a bed – add the finishing touch to complete your look with a quilt folded neatly or casually rumpled (depending on your preference) at the end of the bed.

Tip 2: Style with a flat sheet – for effortless and simple style, layer a quilt over just a flat sheet for the warmer months or year round if you’re a hot sleeper.

Tip 3: Style with a patterned duvet – for cohesive styling, choose a quilt in a coordinating solid colour or classic stripes to complement the palette of patterned bedding.

Tip 4: Style with a plain duvet – keep it simple with a quilt in a similar tone to your plain bedding for a calm and tranquil feel or add a quilt in a contrasting colour and texture to create a bolder look.

Tip 5: Sizing suggestion – we recommend choosing a quilt one size larger than your bed size. This will provide more coverage and create a generous, luxurious feel.


Style notes for our Siesta blue stripe quilt

Our Siesta blue stripe quilt is a reversible design with a blue base on one side and a white base on the reverse. The beautiful blue hues and fresh white make styling this quilt a breeze. For warm summer nights, mix with white sheets. We recommend either our soft Loft linen sheets or crisp cotton percale Heirloom sheets. For the final touch, layer a Cove cotton throw in smoke blue over the Siesta quilt; it’s the perfect size to pull up for afternoon snoozing.


Style notes for our Siesta green stripe quilt

Our Siesta green stripe quilt is a reversible design with a muted green base on one side and a natural base on the reverse. The colour palette offers a lovely natural feel for styling with coordinating neutral tones such as our textured Cove cotton throw in natural. Lighten the look with fresh white sheets and or add hints of pattern with cushions or pillowcases in botanical designs in deeper complementary colours.


Style a quilt on every bed in your home (and holiday home)

Main Bedroom: Transform the main bedroom into a restful retreat with layers of beautiful bedding. If you love patterned bed linen, we suggest choosing a timeless quilt in a solid colour or soft stripes which will easily coordinate with any style. The main bedroom deserves a little luxury so consider a sumptuous velvet or classic linen quilt. If your style is timeless white or natural bedding, try a beautiful quilt with bolder colour and texture to add an element of interest.

Kids’ Room: A children's room is a place to have a little fun with pretty, patterned or brighter bedding. Pick from dainty florals, soft textures and simple stripes for young dreamers. Top Tip: for the more boisterous child, choosing a quilt in a darker palette is a good idea to hide any marks.

Guest Room: Choose a quilt to complement your current guest room bed linen. Quilts in fresh white, classic charcoal or soft natural tones will create a timeless and comforting look for your guests.

The Bach: Quilts are an easy option for beds, bunks and pull out sofa beds at the bach or holiday home. Keep several spare in the linen cupboard for easy instant bedding for those unexpected overnight guests. Choose quilts in a coastal or nautical palette for simple summer styling.
