no. 6 and 7 and a winner!

Continuing along with my 10 most popular post of all time today I bring you numbers six and seven. My seventh most visited post is a DIY advent calendar I made for Christmas a couple of years ago. You can see the post here as I'm sure no one wants to be reminded about winter just yet! Below is number six. I love switching out the sheets, quilts and pillows on my bed. I'm always amazed at how different a room can look and feel with such a quick and easy change. This is how our bedroom looked throughout winter. At the moment, the bed is covered in all white sheets for the summer.

And before I go I wanted to announce the winner of the Augustine drawstring bag. Congratulations Sara Krynitzki! I'll be in touch shortly.

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.

That cute little woven tajine basket with the pink and navy diamonds is also from Baba Souk. I haven't quite decided where to put it yet but there is nothing I like better than storage with a lid!

Do you switch up your bed linens regularly?
