I so love the idea of dark bed linens. There are those who prefer a bright, cheery bedroom so they feel happy in there, and then there are others who say the darker a bedroom is, the more easily it will help calm them down to a nice sleep. Take your pick.
When I went shopping for bed linens for my very first own home I almost got myself a black quilt, it had a luxe look and feel to it – the fabric so soft and velvety, the shade of black so strong, a couple of years later I almost got myself another dark quilt, this time a patchwork of ethnic fabric which couldn’t be more original, but both times I couldn’t justify the presence of a heavy quilt in a hot-and-humid weathered home without the mod con of AC. And if you ask me, I can’t even decide now whether I have always regretted missing out on them…
