I (like most people I'm sure) absolutely love my bed. Seeing as we spend about a third of our lives sleeping it's important to have a space that you love. Since we've redecorated our bedroom I've slept so much better and I genuinely think it's partly down to loving being in my bed (ultimate granny alert right here). A big part of having a bed you love is obviously your bed linen so I thought I'd share some pictures of my lovely bed, talk about how we chose our bed linen and talk about our plans for our spare bedroom.
Our current bed linen is from Next and I absolutely love it. It fits in with the room perfectly and is also quite gender neutral, which I think is important because bedrooms can have a tendency to be quite feminine when really it has to be somewhere you both love! Another thing I love about this bed linen is the fact that there are four variations, as there are two duvet covers which are both reversible and I love being able to turn over the cover a little bit to show the other side.
I either like to choose bed linen that is plain or that matches the room so our bedroom linen is yellow and grey, having taken the inspiration for the yellow from the fireplace tiles and done the same for the curtains and rug.
We're lucky enough to have some beautiful fireplace tiles in our spare bedroom too so we plan to take inspiration for the colour scheme from them. For the bed in that room I'm imagining either plain white bed linen or a pale blue pattern to match the blue in the tiles. The Yorkshire Linen Co have some lovely luxury pieces at affordable prices and I've compiled a wish list below made up of some of their beautiful pieces along with some others I've got my eye on! All The Yorkshire Linen items are currently in the sale (temptation before we've even started decorating the room right there).
How do you choose your bed linen? Do you prefer plain or patterned?
