I love September. It feels far more like the beginning of New Year than January. Maybe it’s the fact that school starts back or it’s the London Design Festival this month, but either way, it feels like a month full of possibilities. Know what I mean?

How was your summer? I spent mine enjoying a slower pace, finding inspiration in the garden. And running around with the children – can’t slow down too much! The bedroom already looks like a hotel room following its fresh coat of paint – Rob spent a few days on it while we gave him some space up in Suffolk. I can’t wait to share it with you in October!

In anticipation of the colder months, I’ve swapped out the linen bedding in favour of crisp cotton sheets from Bedroommood. Made by a small team in Lithuania, the founders find little luxuries in the fabric they’ve chosen. Championing Oeko-Tex® certified Egyptian cotton (which means its grown and processed with no nasties) it’s woven with a minimum of 300 thread count, meaning it’s a softer, stronger quality than average.

Designed with a minimalistic approach in collaboration with designer Vida Vyšniauskienė, the collection sticks to a palette of blues, greys and white with the option of matt percale or sateen for a slight sheen.

We believe in simple things. We are fans of minimalism. We wanted colours that would gently embrace you and will not disturb you on your way towards the state of ideal sleep.

As I’m pulling inspiration from some of my favourite hotel experiences for the bedroom, the best place to start is with the bedding. I’m naturally drawn to contrasting tones in our home so I’ve paired light grey with a charcoal grey percale sheet which looks striking against the new beige walls. I love the crisp rustle of the duvet, the casual, stonewashed feel and the bonus of not needing to iron them. In fact, as far as cotton sheets go, these are superior. An easy way to update your room without going to the trouble of a complete makeover.

Grasses brought home from a walk inspired me to plant more in our garden this summer.

Having washed and used them several times since they arrived, the quality holds beautifully. The fitted sheet comes with a well thought out ‘long side’ label so you don’t have to guess when you’re making the bed up. Over the summer we had had cat-sitting guests use them in our guest room while we were away and they mentioned how lovely they were to sleep in. Bring on autumn.
