It’s been a much discussed topic between my Mother and I, that the only bedding sets I own are white. She is much more of a colour fan than I am, and like the majority of people she wonders how I manage to keep them looking clean. Whether you’re put off by the prospect of quickly owning stained, marked bedding, or you think they’re a boring, basic option, I’m here to tell you why you’re WRONG and everyone should own a set (sorry!)
01. They stay looking fresh and crisp – Yep, despite most people thinking you’ll end up constantly washing it, my white sets have actually stayed looking new and clean for a lot longer than any of my previous coloured sets. Sure, they’re probably quicker to end up looking grubby inbetween washes, but it just means I make sure I change my set every week, stick them on a 60c wash with a bit of vanish in, and they look brand new every time.
02. They don’t dominate a room – Personally I think bedding sets with a particularly bold pattern or in certain colours can completely take over a bedroom. White leaves the space looking open, with the eye still able to wander off and spot different aspects of the room, rather than being dominated by a busy bedding set.
03. They’re easy to accessorize – A white bedding set can easily slot into any bedroom, any colour scheme, and can be accessorized in so many ways. A good quality set can stay with you throughout all the redecorates your room may go through, and compliments all the many cushions and throws I like to stick on my bed well. They’re a good gender neutral option too, because lets face it, if it wasn’t white it’d be blush pink, and I think I know what Kane would prefer!
04. It looks effortless – I sometimes get a bit obsessive with making my bedding look perfect, but white just looks so effortless, a quick flick of the duvet and fluff of the pillows and it’s done, and looks so inviting.
I was kindly sent the white double duvet cover and pillowcases from Rooi, and I am so so impressed with the quality. The set is so soft, it feels like I have really fancy hotel bedding at home! What do you think? Are you a white bedding fan – or if you weren’t, have I managed to convert you?!
