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.
