You know you’re in your thirties when all you want for your birthday is new bedding. That was me this past September–and I was a very happy birthday girl because I got my Rough Linen wish! You may remember that we upgraded to a king size bed this past spring. Well this made me feel like I was totally adulting. But the ironic thing is that the non-adult part of me (let’s just call her busy!) took months to get bedding in the right size. I had the Rough Linen website tab open on my desktop for months and finally got around to ordering this complete set, plus a new comforter and pillows all to fit the larger size bed. I’ve got to say, bedding is one of those ultimate luxuries that is totally worth the splurge. Also worth thinking about putting on that Xmas list! Oh Santa?!
Since I loved how bright and white our master was with the white walls and bedding previously (also seen here) I just thought I’d go with white again just in a larger size. But it was actually my mom who persuaded me to go with some contrast and I’m really in love with the cozy fall and slightly masculine feel the Orkney duvet cover in natural brought into our room.
Oh and the best part about linen? In my opinion it’s the only bedding that looks just as good, if not better, slightly messed up. I have to make my bed every morning, but if you’re someone who often forgets… these look just as good unmade.
Love the detail the coconut buttons add.
