I’ve been talking about changing up our bed linens for maybe a year now, but things have gotten dire: our current sheeting set has started to fray at the trim from years of use. Finally placing an order for new bedding this month. I have been heart-set on Hill House Home for some time, and I had wanted the Waverly in blue but they’ve been sold out for some time. I am considering the Chancery Lane instead — elegant, simple, and somewhat similar to our current bedding, which is from Restoration Hardware (get the look for less with this monogrammable set).
I am also considering Matouk bedding. I had their scalloped sheeting right out of college. I love the styling of all of their linens but have to say I didn’t find the cotton particularly soft, so I’m hesitant to take the plunge again. It was crisp and light — perfect for summer — but not the kind of silky smoothness I was expecting for the price. But the styling! I like the stately Marlowe these days.
Goop marketing got to me, I suppose, and so I have been looking closely at Boll & Branch’s banded sheet set. If it’s good enough for Apple, it’s good enough for me. (Gwyneth supposedly outfits her daughter’s bed in this brand.) The reviews are also compelling, though I’m skeptical when I’m looking at reviews on a brand’s own site; I don’t know how they solicit them or filter them, if at all.
I am drooling over Angela Wickstead’s collections, but am admittedly intimidated by the ordering process — you need to call to custom order and I don’t even know where to begin!
I’ve long loved the whimsical prints of Biscuit Home’s bedding, but I haven’t tired of our simple hotel bedding yet, and I remember growing bored of the printed coverlets and quilts I used in years past. I think best to stick with white and a simple trim.
Along these lines, I’ve heard Serena and Lily has solid bedding. I like the simple look of this set.
Other random upgrades I’d like to make for the bedding situation:
+A new waffle robe. Mine is looking a little long in the tooth.
+A new tissue cover for these new cylindrical tissue dispensers — love that they take up less space.
+A new throw blanket; Tilly claimed ours as her own long ago and it’s no longer suitable for human use if you get my drift. Also ADORE the throws and especially the custom monograms you can find here.
Post-Scripts for Home.
+I also like these Missoni-esque pillows from her collection. May try to incorporate them into my redesigned gray-trim bed!
+Adore these frames for a treasured photo or letter. (Another thought: we have framed a few special cards we’ve received in these inexpensive, double-sided, magnetic-fastening acrylic frames. They’re great if you want to be able to show both sides of something or even showcase a little remembrance like a ribbon or something.)
+Love these little monogrammed brush pots. I’m contemplating one for my own desk!
+A sweet little way to send some thanks to those you love in honor of turkey day. (More thoughts on letter-writing.)
+Still dreaming about this nursery.
+Unrelated: people seem to really dig this inexpensive line of cotton basics, including leggings. I’m intrigued.
