Boudoir Desires

traingle shams, stripe sheets, color blocked throw

Do you ever look around your home or your person and wonder, when did all of my things get so ratty? The other night I was doing all of the Sunday procrastination cleaning activities to ward off the Monday dreads like cleaning the bathtub, changing the sheets, and watering the plants. All of the sudden I actually looked at my sheets and was shocked. Basically threadbare. And somehow I had gotten rid of and/or misplaced some pillow cases and I was suddenly short two shams for the 7,000 pillows I like to sleep with.

In true procrastibrowsing form I got on the Pinsies and took a look around at what I might have lurking on the apartment board. Sure enough I had some bedding stowaways in there. If I could ever come up with the cold hard cash dollars, my bed could use the change up. I tend to re-vamp cyclically with every failed relationship, but since the hand-holding-man-friend has been around so long I guess I forgot.

How about you? Do you change up your bedding look with the seasons? Yearly? Do you rotate out many different sets, or wash and wear one set until they’re done? Basically I’m really interested in your boudoir, so lets talk it out in the comments.

I’d like to think that if I lived in a pretty plantation house down south I’d be the kind of girl to rotate bedding with the seasons. However, due to the design aesthetic of my teeny tiny NYC apartment, I have hardly enough closet space for clothes, let alone extra duvet covers;-) Answer in short: wash and wear.

A linen closet! The urban myth. However given the extra space I’d rather have a washer/dryer than a linen closet.

soooo I went through the same thing with my towels. some are threadbare and some have holes. shocking! how and when did that happen? time to get new ones. I must have thought towels last forever. now I need to check my bedding!

re: linen closet….once I left urban life for the country-ish suburbs, it was shocking to move into a place with a linen closet in the bathroom across from the washer and dryer. I didn’t know bathrooms like that existed. (yes, I am spoiled now but I miss the city)

Truth. I have dreams about a washer and dryer in my apartment.
