Bedroom Nest with Egyptian Cotton Sheets
Two years ago we moved in to our townhouse. It is quite small compared to where we lived before. I’m happy with small. But in all this time I have never got my bed set up to be a nest of happiness and nighttime bliss. We used to have a gorgeous ornate french bed and it was easy as it just always looked fabulous even when it was unmade!
But our new bedroom is smaller and we have a plain King bed. And I have been meaning to get a beautiful big velvet bedhead, but haven’t quite got around to it . . .
I do have a really lovely linen valance to hide the rather ugly feet of the bed. That has been well worth it.
And I have the most beautiful luxurious frette bedspread which, just as we were entering lockdown, finally made it on to the bed!
I have a selection of sheets at home from the ranges we stock and sell, so I can let my customers know what they are like to sleep in.
My favourites so far are the Seneca Egyptian Cotton 500T/C, and the VIDA Linen Sheets from Portugal (all white of course!). And in winter, the Bellini Flannelette sheets are just the BEST.
But just as we were going into lockdown, still with no bedhead, and the bedspread looking fabulous but the bed still unfinished, I decided to go with another Egyptian Cotton Range which has a classic triple trim. I chose the silver grey trim to go with my bedspread, and I JUST LOVE IT!
FINALLY! My bed looks finished! I have the blissful Euros at the back (in place of the headboard for now) and the gorgeous triple thread Pillows (four of them – they drive my husband mad and he constantly refers to When Sally Met Harry!). And the triple thread fold down sheet looks amazing.
And honestly, they are so beautiful to sleep in.
I have loved walking in to my bedroom every night and sighing with happiness that I now have a bed that LOOKS so inviting.
And I especially love that now I slip between the sheets and just love the feel of sleeping in such lovely sheets.
The icing on the cake has been the soft velvet grey comforter at the end of the bed.
Happiness from such small things.
