  • The Best Sheets for Summer

    The warmer months are coming and so are the questions about how to keep cool on those hot summer nights. 

    If you're like me, you love being cozy in bed with sheets and duvet no matter the temperature but when those temperatures creep up I find myself kicking off the covers and playing the hot and cold game all night. 

    Choosing sheets that help regulate your temperature can be a game-changer when it comes to a good nights sleep and by paying attention to quality materials that lend themselves to breathability - you can be sleeping better than ever. 

    So what do we recommend?

  • Let's Talk Towels...

    The first thing you may want to consider when purchasing your towels is the weight. All towels will have a number associated with them that refers to grams per square meter. Beach towels, and gym bag towels have a lower GSM number while the towels you probably want for your bathroom will have a higher number maligning them more plush and thicker.

    The nice thing about our towels is that the GSM number remains fairly low due to the fact that they are zero twist. So that though they are plush and absorbent- they also will not weigh down your towel rack.

  • Dressing your home for Thanksgiving...

  • Pillow Talk ....How to know which pillow is right for you!

    Deciding which pillow is going to help you get the best night's sleep can feel a tad overwhelming but there is an easy way to break it down. 

    First, Take note of how you sleep. On your back? On your side? On your tummy? If it changes through out the night- Try to notice where you spend the most time. 

    The pillow can be the key to a good night's sleep so we make a point of carrying quality pillows that can help you achieve just that. 

  • Understanding Thread Count

    When it comes to choosing sheets, it can be overwhelming to know what to look for. 

    Percale, Egyptian, Poly cotton, Sateen, Bamboo, Deep pocket, and most importantly thread count!

    With so many terms being thrown around how do you know what quality of item you're buying? More importantly - how do you know what YOU want in a sheet...Maybe you don't! 

    The truth is- there is no right answer. It's actually very personal choice and changes from person to person. 

    Do you like a cool and crisp sheet, or do you like one that flows over your body with no sound? 

    Do you like to feel the weight of your sheet and want one that is unnoticeable?

    There ARE, however, some things you should be looking for to separate the luxurious sheets from the inferior. 

  • Shop Beginnings

    I loved watching her fold things with her pink painted nails, her dangling jewelry clicking on the buttons of her tweed blazer. I loved watching her laugh with the customers of whom she knew by name. I loved watching  her hand swipe the credit cards and I loved watching her curl pink ribbon to tie on each bag.
