Treat Your Home – and Yourself – to a Spring Refresh
Those flannel sheets may have served you well over the winter, but warmer weather is all about percale. This cotton fabric is the season’s most essential bedding, with a crisp, cool feel that gets softer with every wash, so you can get a better night’s sleep and wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead.
Pick a pattern to add a little natural inspiration to your bedroom. Percale sheets with seashells, sailboats, nautical maps and other bright outdoor designs are as comforting as they are comfortable.
The bathroom can be an amazing escape – a place where you wash away the stress and put your mind at ease. And that spa-like update you’ve always wanted? It doesn’t have to be difficult or even expensive – a new set of soft, absorbent towels can work absolute wonders. With no shortage of color choices, simply choose towels that complement your existing space. Can’t decide? White is a classic that works no matter what your style.
Seasonal colors can boost the mood of any space – even your bath. Pick up an extra set of towels to switch out as the seasons change: bright and sunny for spring and summer, cool and frosty for fall and winter.
Research has shown that bringing natural elements indoors – known as biophilic design – can have a positive effect on your physical and emotional health. A few lush plants, a desk or sofa purposefully positioned to have a view outside, and even art that depicts natural scenes, are all ways to bring the amazing restorative effects of the outdoors into your home. And remember: you don’t have to go wild; a little outdoors goes a long way.
Another way to move towards a greener home is to take advantage of the growing number of organic options out there today, like organic cotton bedding, blankets and towels.
When our dogs are happy, we're happy too. So give your pup a treat and deck out her favorite sleeping spot with a cozy new bed. Or keep the insert and simply replace the cover. Your furry friend will appreciate a fresh place to lay her head.
