Bedtime stories…

I once read, "A perfect bedroom is both stylishly practical and seductively comfortable…" I love bed linens. Although you may think I'm not much of a linens lover when I tell you I only own white sheets, but I am! I like to add pops of colors with throw pillows. In fact, I change them out every season, depending on my mood or what colors I am obsessing at the time. Textures also play an important role here for me – I love mixing different quilts and throws, whether to dress it up, or down. What about you? What colors or textures do you have on your bed? Even though I'm a crisp-white-sheet kind of gal, I have always been fascinated with antique linens. I find myself going through piles and piles of vintage pieces at flea markets. A friend of mine loves to make pillowcases out of them (secretly wishing I was that crafty). Given we spend one third of our lives (or more!) in our bed, we should really be making the best out of it. Perhaps our choice of bedding is really an extension of our personality, a visual interpretation of sorts…
