I haven’t done an interiors post for a while, so I just thought I would share how I have made a few changes to our bedroom of late. We have very little in our bedroom in terms of furniture; our bed, two bed side tables, a book case and at the husband’s wardrobe. I like to keep it fairly simple and minimal in our bedroom. I think if it doubled up as an office space or dressing room, I would find it hard to relax in. I believe in creating a relaxing environment in the bedroom, as it can affect your sleep otherwise.
I remember as a student studying and doing work on my bed. I don’t know if it was the late hours I would be up, but I found that it did affect my sleep. So I definitely wouldn’t use the bed for studying or work again!
One of the best ways to give the bedroom an update is with new bed linen, right? I love getting into a bed that has freshly washed sheets and duvet; even better if they are brand new ones! I was sent over some new bedding from House of Fraser recently, so was looking forward to giving it a try.
I am not super adventurous with the colour in our home (and the walls haven’t been painted since we moved in nearly six years ago), so I do tend to opt for neutral tones. Nothing too bright or ostentatious. The husband isn’t OK with floral bedding either, so it does limit our options slightly. I fell in love with this Linea Memoirs Jacquard Natural Duvet Cover Set.
The website does describe it as white, but I used my common sense and went with the colour of the picture on the website. It is off-white, almost a sand or beige colour. It has a bit of a sheen to it too, but not in a silky way, if that makes sense? It goes well with our dark brown sleigh bed and lightly coloured carpet and walls.
We have got a few items of bedding from House of Fraser before. I have always been impressed by the quality of the items. They are well made and use some quality materials and fabric. I like that is has buttons to do up the cover with, rather than poppers.
This duvet cover is made using a polyester and cotton mix, and the jacquard pattern is sewn in with polycotton and percale. I like that the duvet cover is easily washed in the machine and doesn’t bobble up after the first wash. I have had that happen before with bed linen and it can really put you off.
The king size option like ours was £90. It is in the sale at the moment for £27, so it is pretty much the best bargain. So quickly hop over to their website before they sell out. The only downside is that polyester isn’t the best material to help you keep cool. So it might not be the nest option during a heat wave. As we come up to autumn, though, I think it would be a good option.
Overall, I think that the cover is great value for money, as it includes two pillowcases too. I love the quality of the product and the pattern. It is subtle but looks stylish. I would completely recommend it.
Have you ever got your bedding from House of Fraser before?
