If we are keeping a running tally of how much our dog Buddy has cost me in ruined stuff I’d say we are working our way well up into 4 figures now. Obviously, our love/hate relationship is more love than hate since we still keep the stinker around. Basically, what I’m saying is Buddy destroyed our bedding a few months ago, and is responsible for yet another makeover in our house…
Which is kind of a happy accident, because I was ready for a change (so maybe Buddy and I secretly are working in cahoots?). Also, you may be thinking “didn’t there used to be a rug in here?” Why, yes, yes dear reader there was… you can ask Buddy about that one too… :)
I found this pretty linen bedding at Restoration Hardware on sale and also scored the softest oversized knit throw ever on clearance while I was there.
I love the texture and subtle striping in the duvet cover and it really paired well with the old Pottery Barn pillows that remained unscathed despite Buddy’s path of destruction.
It was also time for a new set of sheets and I tried a new set out from Perfect Linens.
Disclosure: Perfect linens provided me a complimentary set of sheets to review, but all honest opinions are my own.
I’m a cold sheets kind of girl, do you know what I mean? Like even the thought of flannel sheets makes me hyperventilate, plaguing me with visions of slowly suffocating in the night…
I had a set of Mario and Luigi flannel sheets as a kid that totally traumatized me…
I like crisp and cool sheets to snuggle into at night and the Second Skin sheets from Perfect Linens are amazing! They are the perfect amount of light and airy yet they feel totally cozy. Even the Mr. noticed the difference! I didn’t tell him we got new sheets and he asked me “did you wash the sheets in something different? They feel so much softer than they normally do!” It totally feels like we are sleeping in a nice hotel now, minus the 3 am bad dream wake up call from one our kiddos. Perfect Linens offers a variety of sheet sets lightweight to cozy, so you can really find the best ones for you.
Perfect Linens is also currently offering a discount code for $35 off your purchase just for my readers, so be sure to use code LilyPad35 at checkout!
Our bedroom is feeling all fresh and cozy with just these few new touches! Now, if I only I didn’t have to sleep with one eye open to make sure Buddy doesn’t go on a rampage again… or at least until I am ready to redecorate! :)
We are on our 3rd dog trainer, I’m pretty sure it’s time for a dog whisperer or therapist…not sure if the therapy will be for him or me at this point…possibly my bank account? :)
Oh, one more hint for you! See the little lumbar pillow on the bed? The Restoration Hardware duvet cover came in a little striped drawstring bag of the same material the bedding was in. I took the bag apart and made this little pillow. I’m still looking for something different – possibly a floral or something to break up the stripes, but for now this added just the little detail I needed. Because one can never have too many throw pillows!
