When I moved to the UK, one of my favourite discoveries was the duvet and duvet covers. (What can I say – I’m easily pleased). I grew up with good old American sheets and a comforter. Nice and cosy, but once you buy one, you’re stuck with that pattern until you’re ready to shell out for a new one. Not so with duvet covers – which makes it really easy to change the feeling of your room every time you change your sheets. Which I’m hoping is pretty often… 😉
Remember these moody blue stone-washed beauties we picked up at Habitat?
Well, we’ve swapped them for the other new set we purchased in the same shopping trip – a seriously bright orange. So bright that the wall outside our bedroom glows when we have the bedside lights on. And my Nikon had a little moment this morning when I was trying to grab a quick pic.
With the clocks turning back and darkness settling in, we thought we might need a bit of brightness to come home to. They’re very out of character for us, but we both love them and how much they change the feel of the room.
If we ever get tired of them, we’ll just pop them to the back of the cupboard until we’re ready for a bit of tangerine again. But it’s nice to know they’re there when we need a bit of an energy boost. Hope everyone in the UK enjoys their extra hour of sleep this weekend! xo
