garnet hill has the loveliest selection of bedding and bath stuff, did you know? (i do happen to know as i bought their sheets for lindsey’s old room way back in the day! we loved them!) anyway, for quite awhile, i’ve browsed the web for a pure white duvet. white bedding is bright and airy and if you get tired of it, switch out a throw pillow here, a sham there and you’ve got a change-up. my hesitation was always having it get dingy. i want it to remain right-out-of-the-box brightest white. do tell me, knowledgeable white-duvet-owners: do you periodically use bleach in the washing cycle?
anyway, garnet hill’s washed linen bedding is a whole new level of loveliness. i love it. i love that it’s got a casual look to it (wrinkles! but these ones are totally allowed!) while still being really pretty. and, might i add, also really soft. linen can verge on the rougher side sometimes, but i assure you… not in this case. apartment therapy said, “this is a splurge that is worth it” about this bedding and apartment therapy, i agree.
we also got some new bath towels and a shower curtain from garnet hill. we were in dire need. if i told you that some of our bath towels still floating around this house were wedding presents to steve and shannon would you believe me? well, you should. dire need. (they were married in 1990.) it feels like we hit the jackpot with these ones. they’re so soft, so plush. the shower curtain is also that washed linen but with a cool frayed hem. between the bedding and the bath towels and the shower curtain, i’m basically living in a fancy hotel. but i still have to do the laundry. riddle me that.
and p.s. impromptu baby photo shoots look really fabulous on white bedding backgrounds. reason enough!
