I’m going to be making a bigger announcement post, but (!!!) my boyfriend and I are moving in together next week! The list of things that have to get done seems to be getting longer by the day. As excited as I am, one sad thing is that I can no longer use my monogrammed bedding. (He actually said he didn’t care, haha, but I think it’d just be weird.) When living with anyone, but especially a guy, it can be a challenge to figure out how to blend two different styles together for interiors. I want to make sure our place works for both of us.
When Macy’s came to me about doing a sponsored post for their home department, the timing could not have been better. I haven’t officially moved yet, but I’ve been test running the new bedding here in Connecticut, and I love it so much.
We both (thankfully!) like navy so I tried to stay in that lane. Overall I wanted the bedding to look clean and not too feminine.
One thing I didn’t anticipate about being an adult was how much I’d love linens. It’s such a satisfying feeling to pull out a brand new set of sheets. And I swear, I always have an incredible night of sleep the first night with brand new sheets.
Macy’s amazing home department has a huge selection of sheets. Even if you don’t want to do a whole bedroom overhaul, getting a fresh set of sheets can do the trick. You can go for something fun like the “Whim” line by Martha Stewart, or something totally clean and streamlined from Hotel Collection, or a classic set from Ralph Lauren.
I looked for something that would give a “hotel vibe,” but still had some personality. I chose this Lauren Ralph Lauren duvet. It’s luxurious (sateen) while still being durable (cotton). Both are important to me for comfort and practical purposes considering I have two pups.
Instead of doing classic white sheets which is normally my go-to for bedding, I picked out this navy and white basketweave set. It’s a fun “pop” against the white duvet. For the photos, I had the euro shams in front, but I like the print of the sheets so much that I’ve been putting my regular pillows front and center.
For the foot of the bed, I went with this navy coverlet. It’s gorgeous in person and might be my favorite part of the new setup. It breaks up the white nicely! Also, because I let the dogs sleep in bed with me, I pull it up at night to cover the white duvet. It’s so much easier to toss the coverlet in the wash than to deal with a duvet.
Also, fun fact! My bed is from Macy’s too. I bought it three years ago when I moved out of NYC, and I think it was the best buy furniture-wise. It has six deep drawers (three on each side), perfect for extra storage in a smaller apartment.
Thank you Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
