Linen Sheets Are A Game Changer


This post is sponsored by Garnett Hill.

I kept hearing all of this buzz about linen sheets being the best thing you could ever sleep in, but I didn't really believe it. And even if it was true, I wasn't about to drop a ton of money on sheets when I already had some that were perfectly fine. I mean, it's like the whole thread count, Egyptian cotton thing...It sounds amazing and I love luxury, but do I really need to spend a wad of cash on sheets for the best sleep of my life? If it's a good price and halfway decent and I can get it at a nearby store then I'm sold. At least, that's how I operated until I had the chance to try linen sheets through Garnett Hill. 


When they reached out to me to partner with them this year I was definitely excited. They are known for quality basics for women, kids and home. I have never ordered sheets online before though, and so I thought this was the perfect chance to experience that process. 


I saw these Eileen Fisher ticking stripe sheets in pink, and I just had to have them. The frayed edges are so cute, and the color was the perfect way to add some spring freshness to the room. Although I must say, I was a bit hesitant about linen. I was wondering if everything was just going to look like a wrinkled mess all of the time. I sure as heck didn't want to have to iron all of the sheets everything time I had a guest visit. 


But I took a gamble on them because of the rumors that sleeping in linen is the best. Boy am I glad I did. They are so awesome that I am considering giving up my own master bedroom for the guest room. Being that I live in Arizona where the temps can climb to 120, I should have done this a long time ago. They make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud, and keep you nice and cool compared to regular sheets. 


They do have a worn, slightly wrinkled look to them as most linen does, but I find that charming and a juxtaposition to modern design elements in my guest room. I highly recommend trying linen for yourself! Visit Garnett Hill for more linen styles.

With temperatures already in the 90s this spring and reaching 115 in the summer, you can bet that heavy duvets or comforters on our beds (well, unless, we want to spend a fortune on air conditioning) aren't the best idea. Until recently, that's the only bedding we had for our guest room, so I decided it was time to freshen up this cozy room with some spring colors, light weight sheets and a coverlet.


Duvets are really comfortable, but sometimes they can look a bit messy. I love this light-weight, heather gray coverlet from Lacoste because it creates clean, modern lines for the guest room. It's also machine washable and easy to put on a bed, which is a huge selling point for a busy mama like me. 


White sheets are all I buy, but the sheets we previously had on this bed were inexpensive and a bit thick. Lacoste has great quality bedding, and these were much lighter than the others. So, hopefully, our guests will feel much more comfortable now. 


I brightened up the space using some Millennial pink pillows and a mud-cloth bolster pillow I previously had on the bed. Less in more to create an light and airy quality, so I removed the throw as well. I added some floral branches to the vases, and called it a day.

Changing textiles is a really easy, inexpensive way to transform your spaces for different seasons. I highly recommend checking out Lacoste for any of your home needs.
