I read something recently about someone ironing their sheets. Oh, the drudgery! But mostly: For shame! I love a good sheet wrinkle. No, let’s use the word rumple. Rumpled sheets, smoothed as best as possible and tucked neatly around the mattress, are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.
In an apartment with a bed that shares space with the kitchen table, sheet rumples are a thing you see. They’re right smack in the middle of things. And in the summertime, there’s no covering them up. Stylists will tell you that a bed needs texture. And I agree that there’s a time for adding quilts and blankets, but summertime in an attic apartment is not that time. No, a summertime bed in our place must be an exceedingly pared down affair. The only texture we need lately is the soft weave of a linen bed sheet. The set you see here is from the Eileen Fisher Washed Linen Collection from Garnet Hill and we’ve been luxuriating in it lately.
In a space without a lot that’s extraneous in it, the rumples in the sheets take center stage. Gigantic London plane trees outside our windows cast leafy shadows on our bed and make the light in our place dim in a way that feels welcome when the temperatures keep threatening to reach triple digits. No need for anything extra.
Garnet Hill first partnered with Eileen Fisher ten years ago. In their words, the partnership was born of a mutual interest in “the way natural fabric, fine texture, and soft color create a sense of home and well-being.” For the past ten years, the partnership has been built on a notion of beauty that’s “simple, pure, and elegant.” Clearly they speak my language. Made with the same attention to detail, simplicity, and sustainability that are the hallmarks of the Eileen Fisher brand more generally, their Garnet Hill home collection offers well-made, uncomplicated, and luxurious home essentials: sheets and towels and blankets and rugs. Things for adding a bit of texture, in other words. You can explore the whole collection, right this way.
