Cotton Bedlinen and Throws

12th June 2014

striped sheets from toast

Bedding in the Mad House has always been, er, the opposite of mad. Rather restrained in fact. A series of white cotton or linen duvet covers and sheets with, occasionally, a slight pattern also in white. A gentle check that might vary in size but never in colour. There may once have been a white stripe. On a white background but that was as racy as it’s ever been.

Recently though I have found myself looking at bedlinen in, well there’s no other way to say this, colours. I find a slight yearning for a pop of pink, a hint of navy and, heavens, a sprinkle of pattern. I don’t know what’s come over me. Himself will probably leave home if I buy any.

I foresee months of protracted negotiations. In fact I’ll tell you exactly what will happen. There will eventually be a complete bedroom redecoration; new wallpaper, paint, possibly even a new bed. But the sheets will remain the same.

So here, for the rest of you, is some beautiful bedlinen from Toast.

    Love this post! I’m with you on the white linen but these are seriously tempting…

    I personally love the pattern on the bed linen, the bolder the better, I always opposed the plain white linen (as well as white towels) due to the practical reasons – smeared make up, mascara, dog’s muddy paws… patterns and colours are more forgiving, so you should definitely go for it 🙂
