Bed Down

My husband and I are finally in agreement that it might be time for some new bedding. That took a while…

While I love my linen duvet & shams from West Elm that I’ve had for about 6 years (gets softer with every wash), I don’t love the hotel style sheet sets that have seen better days.

I like to keep beds simple–white and neutral hues with some texture for interest is the way to go in my opinion. Keeping it simple also allows for more layering, so you can layer on the trends as they change without doing an overhaul of the whole bed.

What do I really want? I’d have to say Matteo, so divine and it feels like its been passed down for generations.  Matteo is having a 15% off sale + free shipping but it still doesn’t offer a whole lot of relief to the wallet. I like to drool over the Matteo bedding at a local store called Cottage Chic, Aberdeen NC holla!

The key elements are a new lightweight blanket for the spring/summer, queen shams and two new sheet sets.  The extras are an accent pillow or a colorful throw/blanket folded at the end of the bed.

I’ve rounded up a lot of choices, I plan to piece something together from this field.

I’m going to pair some of this stuff up and see what the best combination is, do you have any favorites? That carriage blanket from Matteo is pretty cozy and versatile and not too out of sight price-wise.

  • I just found your blog while googling something. I love it! Wish I had found you sooner. I couldn’t agree more about white/neutral bedding with layers on top. Such a classic look.

    I’ll be reading from now on!
