It’s time for me to look for the latest bedding ranges.
Here’s where I’m going to sound boring: all our bedding is white. Yep, ALL of it. All the kids’ single beds have two white fitted sheets, two white duvet covers, four white pillow cases for their two pillows each (you know, the ol’ wear one wash one rule). Our kingsize bed has two white fitted sheets, eight white pillow cases, and… only ONE kingsize white duvet cover because somehow a tiny hole started in one and every night I got into bed thinking ‘I must sort that out tomorrow,’ until by the end of the week one of us managed to catch a finger or toe in the hole and created a great rip, that then got caught when we were trying to take the duvet cover off and it ripped in another direction. And frayed. And then I realised I could not repair it. Sounds like a duvet car crash, doesn’t it? Poor duvet. Anyway, we need a new duvet.
(I haven’t thrown out the mortally wounded duvet yet, by the way. I am certain I can make some use of all that white fabric.)
Here’s the other thing. The all white idea was my husband’s not mine. It’s his nod towards minimalism. If he were single he’d have the polished concrete flat with one chair in it.
And so, on looking at bedding online at K&Co.com I may just happen to not be able to find any white replacements and instead go crazy and get something contrasting. Or maybe not, because it’s nice to compromise and actually the all white bed linen does make my life a heck of a lot easier.
If I were single what would my place look like, you ask? Ok, fair is fair after all. There’d be plants everywhere, wall hangings, rugs in interesting colours, herbs in old pots along the window sill, patchwork quilts on beds that have duvet covers in whatever colours looked pretty in the shop, and I might even introduce some macramé into the mix (remember that?).
We’ve met somehwere in the middle. There’s a few plants, a few herbs, a few old pots, no macramé, no polished concrete and plenty of white bed linen.
What about you, what colours of bedding do you choose?
