Spotlight On: White Bedding

6 Sep

Labor Day has come and gone signaling the general end to summer. It’s hard to believe here in Texas though where recently we have gone through the longest streak of days with temperatures over 100 degrees.

But to most women out there, Labor Day reminds us of the style mantra: “No white after Labor Day.” Where did this rule come from? Check out Time Magazine’s explanation here for more random details if you feel so inclined.

To me though, this fashion rule is an antiquated tradition that must be broken. Not only do I plan to continue to wear white while the weather is still in the 3 digits (whether it is after Labor Day or not), but I would also like to celebrate and promote white with today’s post about one of my favorite things: White bedding.

White bedding is plush, lovely, soft, luxurious, clean and crisp all at once. It can go in any room, any time. The great thing about incorporating white into a bedroom is that you can honestly pull it together with a variety of color schemes, textures, styles. White is an extremely handy tool in the home decorator’s palette that can add contrast to and add polish to a room. See for yourself.

Bold floral wallpaper and ruched white duvet. Yum!
