Not sure what you thought it might signal in a post; hope you enjoy (instead) these photos of the delicious new linens I just ordered from a new Canadian company, Maison Tess, that I read about on Garance Doré's Atelier Doré.
I've been wanting new bedding since we moved into this condo, September 2016, but other rooms took priority, never mind all the travel. I did try shopping for linens back in January, but gave up in frustration at department store offerings--too many choices, none that really grabbed me.
that post though, a reader, Mundi, mentioned a small American company Rough Linen, and I was smitten at first click on that website.
Atelier Doré post introduced me to Maison Tess.
Here's what I wrote for the requested review, currently posted on Maison Tess's website (and you should know, I have not received a penny, nor any discount, nor any free product, in compensation -- this is simply my enthusiasm for a good product and good service bubbling over):
But consultations apparently took place, and we soon inherited "Great-Aunt Winnie's double bed." I scarcely remember Great-Aunt Winnie, who must have died in the ensuing decade, but we surely didn't replace her bed until she was long gone -- we were directing funds, instead, to beds for one, two, three, and then four children. . . .
You'll be relieved to know that we eventually did replace that bed, even "upgrading" to a queen-sized bed . . .
Not the wrinkles you were expecting, from the title, perhaps, but I hope you enjoyed the post anyway. Any bedroom stories you'd care to share? (Oh, I hope that doesn't bring the spam!) Anyone else converted to linen bedding? Or always slept in it? Share a tale of the worst bed you ever slept in? (We had to request a repair, once, in a rented Paris apartment, and the fellow who came to repair the bed's broken slats was appalled, called the company for us and insisted a new bed be delivered immediately). Anyone considering a shift to separate beds? or separate bedrooms? (my mother went that route the last several years of their marriage; the caregiving Dad required because of cancer left her craving rest and solitude by days' end) -- we really liked the twin-beds-pushed-together-but-made-up-separately approach we see in many European hotels (much less transfer of shifting movement and the separate bedding means no one gets uncovered when she wants to stay covered or vice versa).
The mic's yours. . . let's chat. . .
