After a long day, there is nothing more relaxing than getting into a bed with nice, crisp bedding on it. I have come to really appreciate nice bedding, but don’t have the budget for the super fancy stuff (also, I have two dirty dogs who sleep in bed with me). I’ve become a big fan of Crane & Canopy bedding, who is now a sponsor of EOS, for their amazing quality and unique features. As you may recall we redid my guest room with their bedding (see post here) and now I sometimes sleep in the guest room just because the sheets and duvet feel so nice (and also as a mini break from said dirty dogs and big husband hogging the bed).

An easy way to perk up your bedroom for spring and summer is with fresh new linens. I rarely use a complete matching set (it reminds me of 90’s “Bed-in-a-Bags”) but rather mix different kinds of shams, duvets, quilts and pillows. Here are a few schemes I pulled together that say “SUMMER” to me!
I am such a sucker for monogrammed things. I love finding amazing sourced for home accessories and children’s gear with unique, beautiful monograms. Nothing feels more personal than having bedding or napkins with your own monogram on them. While surfing Instagram I came across what may be the mecca for pretty monogrammed goods- The Loveliest Company in Dallas (the grouping of monograms above is from their account). Look at how adorable the shop itself is!
It says they are launching an e-commerce site this spring, which I can’t wait for!
I have been so all bout bold blues the past few months (perhaps because of the little boy?) and I had so much fun pulling together this cozy bedroom by letting my blue freak flag fly. I started with this amazing block print duvet from Kalyana Textiles and went all out from there. And take note, that amazing blue art comes HUGE. :)

As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to appreciate something I always though was a waste of money- good sheets and bedding. I’ve long been a discount store shopper when it came to sheets, but after getting my first set of high end sheets and seeing my bargain bin ones pill and wear terrible I became a convert. So when one of our favorite vendors, Annie Selke told us about her new bedding line, Annie Selke Luxe, and offered to send over some bedding to try I was psyched (and so was Oliver).
