5 Tips for Choosing Bedding

January 31st, 2014

If it’s true that we spend a third of our lives sleeping (more or less), then it’s important to treat ourselves to fine bedding.

Don’t you think?

Quality bedding lasts for years and really can make you feel like the Queen you are!

Here are 5 tips to do just that:

1)  BUY THE BEST YOU CAN AFFORD. Besides lasting for many years, think of how delicious you feel to go to sleep and wake up nestled in fine linens. Also a spray of lavender onto the sheets and pillow cases insures sweet dreams.

2)  CHECK THE THREAD COUNT. You really don’t need a 1,000 thread count. 300 to 400 is perfect and feels wonderfully soft. I would also choose Egyptian cotton as the feel is fabulous.

3)  CONSIDER TEXTURE. If you prefer white-colored linens, details like ruching and pintucks provide visual interest.

4)  MIX PATTERNS AND STYLES. Again mixing provides visual interest but also offers more chic. You can easily change the “look” using different pillows and throws.

5)  DUVET COVERS. A helpful tip is to look for a duvet cover that has interior ribbons in each corner. They hold the comforter in place and makes for easier bed-making in the morning.

Here’s to a good night’s sleep and happy dreams!

Until next time…

Blessings from my house to yours,
