I don't mind telling you – I like breakfast in bed. Nothing feels more lazy and luxurious than watching an old movie and sharing a tray, topped with mimosas, Gimme Lean, tofu scramble & toasted bread, with my husband on a lazy Sunday. And I take my bed & my bedding quite seriously… I don't get to spend a whole lot of time in my there, so when I do – it had better be good, right? I've been sleeping on organic cotton and/or bamboo bedding for a couple of years now and it just feels right. Soft and chemical-free, sustainable sheets can't be beat! But now that our bedding is a couple of years old, it's getting ready to make the move from our bed to an animal rescue (btw… they also take old towels, blankets & coats – find one near you and keep a pooch or kitty comfortable). So, I find myself happily shopping for some new sheets.
Amy Butler is a recent discovery. Her first line for Wellspun (and available as of early June at Bed Bath & Beyond – believe it or not) is playful & grown up at the same time. Bright colors, certified organic cottons and modern, yet exotic floral motifs make Amy's bedding the kind of bedding that adds an instant finished feel to a room. Take an all white room, add some Amy Butler bedding… and you're done!
And then there's Rubie Green! The pieces are fresh & fun, but they SO remind me of my childhood days spent in Lily Pulitzer frocks running around my grandparent's Florida house. Also, 100% organic cotton and also 100% d-i-v-i-n-e! Rubie Green sheets make me want to cover my bed with her designs and buy up some of her fabric by the yard and do a whole grand canopy bed a la David Hicks!

Now, go… sleep, drink champagne, devour a dvd and enjoy all the amazing things a "green" bed can be!
