One of the reasons our linen closet is in such a need of an overhaul is because I have a bit of an obsession with textiles. I don't think I've been on a holiday in the past ten years when I haven't brought home some sort of blanket or throw or rug. Even when I'm not on vacation I'm constantly drawn to beautiful pillows and linens. It's just my thing!
Of course, it is nice to use all these different textiles when I have a chance. I'm a firm believer in switching up your bed linens a couple of times of year usually with the seasons. Although I didn't plan it this way, our neutral bedroom is the perfect foil for many different textile schemes. You might remember that last winter I used a Hudson's Bay Blanket as the focal point of our bedroom.
This winter I decided to pull out a cream wool bedspread I bought in Uruguay on our honeymoon. It has a chunky fringed border that looks lovely draped over a bed. I topped it with a Kantha bedspread that I purchased at a local store here in Toronto.
The jumping off point for this whole darker colour scheme were these amazing Moroccan pillows I found over at Baba Souk. I've been looking for pillows like this for awhile now so I was so happy to find a reasonably priced Canadian supplier. I paired them with two Kilim pillows I picked up from The Arthur a couple of years ago, a cream Mongolian Lamb pillow from West Elm and an indigo pillow cover from Haveli Home in Toronto.
Now on to that linen closet! It really is in need of an overhaul. I'll show you what I'm dealing with in the next post.
Do you switch up your bed linens regularly?
