Oh, I see you’re still sleeping on white sheets beneath a white duvet. Interesting choice. Who do you think you are, Kelly Hoppen? I have seen the future and it is…. Mismatched bedlinen. So rustic, so thrifty, so boho. I love it. These candy-stripe pillows are from Toast, and I covet them.
I myself, in the past, was a white-only linen nut, but I bought some floral pillowcases from Toast last Christmas. And then, when at home, spied some duck-egg coloured cotton sheets (probably pre-war) in my mother’s mighty linen closet, which I knew would just go so perfectly…. Now I revel in my tastefully tonal pillows and sheets. Matching white linen is so boutique hotel. So WAG. Instead I’m pouring over the Toast brochure and referencing log cabins and slightly creaky old bedsteads.
Here is a sample from my room, complete with a candy stripe cushion I just made from a remnant – get me! Note the less than excited face of the cat – AKA the anti-stylist – who wasn’t moving just for a photo. The whole look is now accessorised with a large patch of black fur. Oh relax. Like I said, it’s boho.
