Happy Holidays, Snobs!
After weeks of planning and celebrating the holidays, we’re surely all going to feel ready for a long winter’s nap. So, with a little inspiration from a Cuddledown customer looking to re-create the dreamy bed she slept in at the Four Seasons, I thought I’d share with you some tips on making your bed the envy of, well, everyone.
First things first—choose your mattress protector—it extends the life of your mattress, and serves as a foundation for all the plush goodness to come. Your thickest (and often considered the most heavenly!) layer is your featherbed. There are many options, from simple goose feather and down blends to layered, deluxe featherbeds with Fill Power. A good old Original Featherbed is just what I need for an extra layer of support and comfort. Now come the sheets, and as we snobs know, sheets can make all the difference. Sateen, percale, linen, voile, jersey, silk—the possibilities are endless. Crawl into 500 thread count Italian percale sheets (or under the matching duvet cover!) and you’ll never want to come out. After you tuck in your fitted and flat sheets, you might enjoy a nice blanket for added softness (and in winter, added warmth.) My favorite is the lightweight Cotton/Bamboo Medallion Blanket in lemon, which coordinates with absolutely everything. Top it all off with a handcrafted 800 Fill Power German Batiste Down Comforter—the world’s lightest, most luxurious comforter—and you’ll give a whole new meaning to Beauty Sleep.
