Fall Into Bed with Fig Linens and Home: Alexis Parent of Alexis Parent Interiors Designs a Tailored Bedding Ensemble
"I definitely tend to have a very tailored sensibility, explains Alexis Parent of Alexis Parent Interiors when speaking about her signature design style. "I prefer spaces that are clean and refined, yet warm and inviting."
Refined yet inviting is exactly what Alexis accomplished when she collaborated with Carlin Van Noppen of Westport's Fig Linens and Home to create a bedding ensemble for the season.
"I love the bedding Alexis chose," says Carlin. "Matouk is clearly one of our favorites and Alexis likes the brand as well, so it made working together easy."
"Alexis selected crisp basics from Matouk's Pearl Matelassé collection that anyone would love to sleep in while the white and Almond color palette keep it clean. The deep charcoal Yves Delorme lumbar pillow and grey chinchilla faux fur throw add a 'Wow' factor as well."
Fig's Westport location draws discerning customers, including those who also call on Alexis Parent Interiors to design their homes.
"I am trained in many different aesthetics," explains Alexis, "so I love that Fig Linens and Home has something for everyone."
"And I love Westport," adds Carlin. "Many clients from the area are travelers and patrons of the arts who appreciate beautiful things."
"My inspiration for this vignette started with the fabulous mirrored-splashed Vayu pillows from John Robshaw. From there, I sourced artwork from artist Pam Zaremba that I love and pulled it all together with the soft and luxurious bedding from Matouk."
Fig Linens and Home also carries the satin-stitched Essex bedding by Matouk and Alexis selected a fitted sheet, flat sheet and Euro two shams in Champagne to compliment the coverlet.
"Matouk has so many wonderful options to choose from this season. Their variety of colors and soft fabrics lend themselves to any room, no matter the style. They are one of my favorite go-to's at Fig Linens!"
When combined with a handsome pair of graphite-colored ceramic gourd lamps and off-white lacquer side tables, the Matouk collection comes to life.
"It is always most important to me to understand what aesthetic speaks to my client, says Alexis. "A bedroom is a very personal space and should have a level of serenity, more so than other rooms in the home."
