summer bedding

11 Apr summer bedding

We gave our bed another facelift.

I loved that bright blue mod bedding, but it wasn’t very soothing. Having suffered insomnia in the past, I’ve learned just how important it is to have calming colors and patterns in your sleep space. We had to dial it down a notch and lighten things up for the heat that’s just around the corner. So I exchanged the blue duvet for this lightweight coverlet by DwellStudio.

Speaking of heat, we had our first 100-degree day recently and I just about panicked. Seriously, friends. I’m having a little PTSD from last summer. (If you’re new to the blog, our first summer in the desert wasn’t easy: exhibit A, B, & C).

This year, though, we have a few tricks up our sleeve. We’re peppering our calendar with concerts and swim lessons and playdates with new friends…and we’re escaping to the mountains for a few weeks to see old friends. We’ll be the opposite of snowbirds. Oh, wait….we WILL be snowbirds.

    Um, yea, I just want to know what you did with the pottery barn bedding you had that was replaced with the red that was replaced with the blue that was replaced with this yummy yellow… Because we are still sleeping on the bedding we registered for 13 years ago! (remember that wedding! You were there!) Time for an update? I think so! Been doing some window shopping…

    LOL, Emily! You should splurge on some new bedding.

    The Pottery Barn bedding (which was a Christmas gift a few years ago, yay!) is now on our guest bed.

    The red bedding ($50 on sale through HauteLook) is in the linen closet and it will remain our cool-weather bedding since it’s a duvet set.

    The blue bedding: Donated to charity. :)
