I Dream of Linen

Our new bedding arrived a day early and I was able to snap a few pics yesterday before the sun went down.

It’s everything I’d hoped it would be. The linen is so soft to the touch and isn’t too stuffy, and the light oatmeal color lends a much airier look than the old brown duvet. I’m loving the color and feel of the blue satin pillowcases, as well. I also think the awesome lines of our four-poster bed “pop” a little bit more with the lighter backdrop.

The two photos of the new bedding above were taken at about 6pm with the lights turned off. Can you believe what great light there is in our room? I love it.

I was so excited to go to bed last night, especially since I’ve got a cold and slept horribly the night before. No amount of soft bedding can cure my stuffy nose, but it sure can make waking up every hour less miserable. I tell you, it was downright delightful.

Next, I’d like to whip up a throw pillow for flair. I’ve got some ideas floating around my head but haven’t come up with a definitive plan just yet. I also need to rewire the two bedside lamps that belonged to my grandmother (they’re technically my sister’s, they’re just living with me for a while). You can see I have one on the left side of the bed with the shade all awry. I’ll be remedying that, as well.

I’m almost done fixing up all my mismatched chairs and am so freakin’ happy with the results. I’m hoping to share them tomorrow or Thursday. In the meantime, I’ll be wishing I could take off of work to spend the day curled up in linen and nursing myself back to health.
