As much as I enjoy pretty prints, I am also drawn to the classic look of an all white bed. I would love a supply of European linen sheets in white. Preferably vintage. I know I can find them online, but until that happens I will dress my plain cotton sheets up with lacey vintage pillow slips.
I already bought a couple of puffy oversize bed pillows to accommodate some of my nicer vintage pillowcases that are a bit on the large size. Antique and vintage bed linen does not come in a standard size.
A bedroom chair is a handy spot where extra pillows get tossed at night.
Another large pillowcase with a tatted edge peeks out underneath. Though both are vintage, the fabric is almost like new, having most likely been safely tucked away for a time.
The pillowcase on the left has the opposite problem. It requires a pillow a little more narrow than standard.
As is often the case, this pillow slip is one of a kind. But mixed white bed linens look wonderful together. And the individual character of hand worked linen makes it worth a little extra trouble.
A bed of fresh white vintage linen is the perfect recipe for
Don't you agree?
Still lots of dreamy soft nights left this summer!
Wishing you a dreamy white Wednesday!
