Sometimes in life, the simple pleasures are the best ones.
When I was younger, I never imagined in a million years that home stuff would excite me.
But ever since I moved out and into a place of my own the idea of buying new things to put my stamp on my home has actually excited me. Oh, if only my 15-year-old self could see me now!
There is something so satisfying about new bed sheets. Although, living with a guy who measures in at over 6 feet means we have a super king size bed. Yup, it’s huge. So I’m always on the lookout for affordable, nice bedding. And of course, a bed set that goes with the current wall colour (orange!!) but will go just as well once we paint it a new colour. I’m pushing for purple.
Hardly surprising then that for me grey and whites are my go to. JD Williams has lots of choices and ones that suit all budgets. I’m also a fan of a reversible duvet. More bang for your buck is never a bad thing! This one is great – a nice floral pattern on one side, and polka dots on the reverse. I like a floral print, but the polka dots also give it a modern edge.
The other great thing about neutral colours is that you can go for a much brighter sheet. This means I get away with having bright pink ones. I’m fully aware they don’t go with our orange wall, but I’m hoping this will encourage us to decorate…
While browsing bed sheets I also had a look at some of the throws JD Williams had to offer. I love a good fluffy blanket. As someone who is cold pretty much all the time, a good blanket is a necessity in my house. The fluffier the better! This purple one is so soft and warm. I opted for purple, thinking that it would go with the sheets, along with ones I already have. My thought was that it would go on the bottom of the bed. It hasn’t moved from my favourite spot since I got it (I’m writing this post snuggled under it!). Is there anything better than spending a chilled out Sunday, cosy with a cuppa either reading or just enjoying a great view?! I think not.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets excited about home stuff?
