Best of “Green” bedding – Breakfast in Bed just got even better!

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!

  • Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not
    sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Many thanks

  • Wow, this post is nice, my younger sister is analyzing these kinds of things, so I am going to let know her.

  • You made some decent points there. I checked on the web to learn more
    about the issue and found most people will go along with
    your views on this website.

  • It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on web as compared
    to books, as I found this article at this web page.

  • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  • I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!

  • Hey would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!
