We often talk about how our wardrobe changes with the seasons, but something I’m sure we all change up and don’t talk about nearly as much is bedding. In the winter, I love love lots of blankets and layers. I’m always cold and I love snuggling up with blankets – plural. In the summer, I still like snuggling up with blankets, but obviously lighter weight blankets. So off comes the down blanket and fleece blanket….and flannel sheets and I switch it up with a light quilt, regular sheets and thermal blanket. In fact, I Instagrammed a shot of my new floral quilt a few weeks ago.
This isn’t the Instagram picture, but it’s pretty much the same. By now, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love florals so this Laura Ashley quilt (which is reversible) screamed my name. However, if I could redo my whole bedding situation, I would love to go with a crisp, all-white look. Parachute , a luxury bedding company based out of Venice Beach, California, offers an array of bedding sets and pieces featuring these simple, clean cut colors. Below, I’ve put together my dream bedding.
I chose The Venice, which is the bedding set that includes a fitted sheet, duvet cover, and 2 pillowcases. You can choose from colors ranging from ash, slate, navy, and more. I think I’d go for white, because I think the look of an all white bed and comforter/duvet just looks so comfortable and luxurious. White also seems like a great color to go with for summer. I like the striped, cashmere throw for some extra snuggling material too, because as you know even though it’s summer I love layers! The light on the end-table is great because I love to read before bed, especially now that it’s summer time and I have more free time. I have a whole list of books I’d like to get through before summer ends! Lastly, candles are a must for me because I love them and I love the calming atmosphere they provide, not to mention the lovely scent they give off. The candles available at Parachute are all natural soy wax which provides a slow, even burn. Some people think candles are only for fall and winter, but I think they are great all year long. I can’t think of a better way to fall asleep than with a book in hand, the lingering scent of a candle (that you safely blew out before falling asleep!), and wrapped in luxurious sheets.
I’d love to create a bedding set like this for myself one day. Just throw in a vase of some fresh flowers (imagine how pretty that would look against all that white) and I’d be happy!
