Bed linens are important at Linderhof. A well made bed, wether for ourselves or our guests is important. Because as much as we like to pamper our guests, we like to pamper ourselves as well.
Linens are always white and if they're old, so much the better. At Estate Sales I'm always searching for vintage pillowcases and top sheets. Old linens have a "patina" that make them soft and comfortable.
It's important that our guests feel at home, therefore, there are four pillows on the guest room bed -- two foam and two feather. Two additional pillows are in the armoire in case they are needed.
The bed linens are all white.
There is nothing like crisp white bedding!
The bedspread is a matelasse in an apricot color. For warmth at the foot of the bed is a feather duvet with a cover in shades of green.
It's a bedroom that says welcome and a bed that says comfort!
Husband Jim is a dear for he has spent more of his life in pink rose bedrooms. Our first apartment had pink rose paper in "our" bedroom and when we moved to Linderhof, the master bedroom was papered in pink roses as well.
We love the paper, it was done by a dear friend who is no longer with us and I want to keep it as long as possible.
We have four feather pillows on our bed for we love feather. I'm a one pillow person but husband Jim is a two so one spends the night on the chair by the bed.
A soft green quilt with pink roses covers the bed and at the foot is a feather duvet clad in a beige duvet cover with white roses.
It's a comfy bed we think and we like the tallness of it. It seems strange when we sleep elsewhere and the beds are so low -- it's almost like sleeping on the floor!!!!!
We believe that a bed should be comfortable and welcoming . . . and we think the beds at Linderhof covered in vintage linens and piled high with pillows and duvets are!
