a pair of pillows...

All white bed linen is so relaxing and timeless. While we are drawn to the beautiful patterned and colourful bedding you see in the shops, Susieq, JJ and I always end up purchasing all-white linen in the best thread count we can afford. If your lives are as colourful and chaotic as ours, you will relate to the feeling of relief when walking into a bedroom and seeing crisp white bedding in a serene room (see here for a photo of my all-white bed.)

However, nobody craves change more than us mondo cherry girls, and we have found the best way to alter the look of our bedrooms cheaply and quickly is to buy a pair of pillowcases from the designs we are attracted to. Adding a throw, a couple of smaller cushions, and a bunch of flowers really completes the instant make-over.

A bold, bright red paired with the white linen is both cheerful and festive.

Blue and burgundy, with velvet edges really change the look.


Pretty florals and pastels keep things pale but interesting.


The post-Christmas sales are not that far away and there are often stands full of pillowcases waiting for a home... JJ and I will see you there!
