I’ve mentioned before on the blog that I’m a fan of the Lighting Department at BHS, with its good selection of stylish and contemporary lamps, pendants and wall lights at affordable prices. But I haven’t tried something from their bedding range before. So when BHS kindly offered to send me a bedding set to review, I was keen to see if it would live up to my expectations.
So firstly it was nice to discover that the bedding department has several choices for a Super King bed, like ours. I love pure white bedding and this preference well catered for. But there are lots of lovely patterns and colours, too, if that’s more your thing. In the end the choice came down to two I couldn’t quite decide between. First, this Cotton Circle Knot White bedset:
It reminded me very much of the bedding featured in the recent makeover over of Jen’s bedroom across the pond at IHeart Organizing (one of my fave USA blogs).
My other shortlisted bedset was the equally gorgeous Belle Bedding Set by Vintage Boutique, and as the Circles bedding range had just gone out of stock at the time of ordering (obviously a popular choice), it made my decision easier; Belle Bedding it was to be:
Our bedroom is about the only place I can add a bit more femininity to our home (being outnumbered by menfolk four to one) and I am always quite taken with anything that has ruffles – so the ruched border on the duvet and pillowcases fitted the bill perfectly. In 100% cotton, it feels crisp yet soft and is snow-white in colour. It washes at 40 degrees and can be tumble dried. So simple – yet not at all plain, with that lovely design detail.
I think it was a good choice for our room, with our vintage style wallpaper on one wall – they both really seem to complement each other.
I’ve got more plans for our bedroom including changing the light fitting and buying some new curtains in the next few weeks, so watch this space for an update coming then.
In the meantime we’re really going to enjoy our lovely new vintage-inspired bedding and if you intend to check out the bedding yourself in the BHS Home Department and see something you really like, don’t forget that there is free standard delivery on orders over £25.
Thank you to BHS for sending the complimentary bedset for the purposes of this review.
