If a bed is anything, it should be warm and homey. Hence, design blogger Bailey McCarthy’s favorite euphemism for a bed is “the biscuit” — and her eponymous bedding line and storefront give you ample reason to curl up. Seeing a void in the market for luxurious, affordable bedding, McCarthy parlayed the success of her interior design blog, peppermintbliss.com, into collections of coordinating prints and linens. The American-made line is manufactured and printed on 350-thread count sateen, with designs named for McCarthy’s favorite fellow bloggers, including The Joanna in honor of Cup of Jo’s Joanna Goddard and The Katie for Matchbook Mag’s Katie Armour. Her new 1,400-square-foot storefront, Biscuit Delicious Homegoods, at the corner of Kirby and Westheimer, also stocks reclaimed furniture refurbished and repurposed, lighting, and other goodies McCarthy has collected over years of client work and doubles as an office for talking design with clients, as well as a gallery space for a rotating roster of artists — currently featured is Texas-born photographer Gray Malin. From a forest-green-lacquered console with matching China rose stools upholstered with playful, unexpected floral fabric to tufted headboards and a funky chintz chaise, McCarthy seamlessly blends preppy and playful. 2606 Westheimer Road, 713.942.9797; biscuithomegoods.com.
