linen closet shopping

I guess you could say I'm a linen hoarder because when I see a pretty duvet cover, decorative Euro shams or an Egyptian cotton sheet set for a fantastic price I have a really hard time not buying it to store in my linen closet. Before David and I got married I had several bed linens, tablecloths and cloth napkins. I take after my mother, I guess, who has an entire walk-in closet full!
It's amazing how much the feel of our bedroom changed when I swapped our plain white duvet cover for this aviary one that I got on super sale at Anthropologie a few months ago (+ a gift card = score!). Then I flipped my pillows and tied back my curtains and had an entirely new room! It feels a bit "Springy" for Autumn, but doesn't the gold remind you of Autumn leaves?

  1. I love that duvet cover, it looks great! <3 Anthropologie <3 I think that the navy and gold evens it out and makes it look like autumn. I can't wait to switch out my bedding for the new season :)

  2. It is really pretty! I think it has a rich look for fall rather than a light, airy spring look.

  3. Lovely, Liz! You certainly have a flair for decorating and you give me courage to shop in places I wouldn't think to shop (thrift stores, IKEA, etc.).

    I need to help my son move into an apartment next year and he has nothing and a limited budget. So the challenge begins--with your inspiration. Thanks!

  4. Buying new bedding is definitely my addiction as well. Something about a new duvet makes everything seem right with the world.

    You have inspired me to do a switch up.

  6. I really love this. I need you to have talk with my husband about the wisdom of hoarding linens.
