Put Away The Heavy Bedding & Blankets

Hildreth's

While springtime is traditionally the season for cleaning and clearing out clutter, summer is a great opportunity to go deeper and tackle the more DIY-oriented tasks around the home. The following tips and makeover ideas will help give your home a summer spruce-up, without breaking the bank.

How to Refresh Your Bed with Decorative Pillows and Shams

If we could, we’d build ourselves a massive walk-in linen closet solely for stocking the shelves with a crazy-rainbow array of solid and patterned duvets, sheets, quilts, blankets, throws, and pillows, for switching up the look of our bed whenever the craving for color strikes. We’ll probably never possess such a magical place, so instead we’ve found ways to change the look of a handful of our favorite quilts and matelassés in the two simplest steps known to the decorating world: new shams and decorative pillows.

We love this approach for many reasons, but mostly because it’s super-fast! Pop some pillows into their shams, toss on a throw pillow or two, and you’re done! It lets us experiment with new colors, patterns, and fabrics, while highlighting old favorites. And it’s affordable, allowing us to keep our décor fresh without changing out the most expensive pieces.


Here’s a quick guide to giving your bed a new look with decorative pillows and shams. For an even more dramatic transformation, try adding an extra piece — a quilt, duvet, or throw — that coordinates with one of your new shams.

Add a pop of color and pizazz to an otherwise beautiful bed by swapping out solid-colored pillow shams with pastel-hued patterned ones and maybe even the coordinating sheets if you want to create a cohesive look. This simple update packs a lot of character!

For a touch of feminine flair, swap out solid ivory shams for ruffled white euro shams. What was previously a “buttoned-up” looking bed now looks positively dreamy with this super-quick change.

In the place of solid white pillowcases, why not experiment with Blossom Pillow Shams? Who wouldn’t want just a touch of floral influence floating around? As the cherry on top, add in a colorful coordinating decorative pillow. Bring the design full-circle by adding in the Blossom Sheeting as well. Three quick swaps and voila! The perfect springtime bed!

Thread count Counts!

Thread Count Counts 1.jpg

You can’t walk through the housewares section of a major department store without being bombarded by bedding signs trumpeting the virtue of high thread count—the number of threads per square inch—often with lofty price tags to match. While we’re all for purchasing the best bedding you can afford, our years in the biz have taught us a few things about thread count.
 

  1. Looks—and marketing departments—can be deceiving. When a single thread is made up of multiple strands or plies of fiber, some manufacturers will count each strand or ply to boost their total thread count. The dead giveaway is texture; if a sheet feels like something you might serve a barbecue on top of, we can guarantee it won’t become soft as a newborn lamb with a few weeks’ worth of washings.
  1. The quality of the fiber matters more than the actual thread count. The finest cottons, for example, have long fibers that create soft, strong threads that hold up to frequent washings. These sheets will feel softer and be more durable even at a lower thread count than inferior-quality fibers with an exaggerated thread count.
  1. If it seems too good to be true, it is. No matter how awesome your mom’s best friend’s bargain-hunting skills are, she won’t find a true 800-count sheet set for $50. Period.
  1. Expect the minimum. To get the most comfort and the longest wear out of your sheets, look for minimum thread counts in your favorite weaves. For a crisp cotton feel, go for a 200- to 300-count cotton percale.

If you’re searching for sheets that are versatile and great for year-round use, 400-thread count sheets are less crisp and won’t collect pet hair!
