I've got Bed Head at the moment. That's not just due to the fact that hair washing has been reduced to a treat situation, it's also because I can do nothing else but think of bedroom decor, with three of them to kit out in the next two weeks.
As you may have seen, I've gone for lame ass neutrals on the new bedroom walls so was hoping to spice things up a bit with the bedding and accessories, but this presents an issue and it goes like this:
Bedding needs washing, washing needs drying. Drying (usually) needs ironing and freshly ironed clean duvet covers need a wrestle with the actual duvet to get them in. All things considered, changing the beds is not a job I relish. As a result, I've generally gone for white bedding, which you can pick up fairly cheaply and if we all have the same sized duvets then a kind of squad rotation laundry system can go on. Strip one, change one, wash one etc...
But like I said, I was hoping to move away from plain white bedding this time and figuring out if I could overcome the laundry implications of this was causing me a headache until PING - an email popped up from Marks and Spencer revolutionising bed changing as we know it.
What if, you just picked up your duvet in the morning and shoved it in the wash? No stripping, no wrestling and perfectly dry enough by bedtime to simply chuck back on?
THAT's what the new range of printed bedding promises to do and what's more, it's even available in a choice of really cute colours: coral, mint green, light grey and blue. Look, I get that you may need a couple of minutes to take this news in, I certainly did so just to recap - it's an all in one, 100% machine washable duvet and cover solution available in single and double sizes with matching pillowcase in 4.5 and 10.5 tog options. At a super affordable £32.50, I'm scratching my weary (unkempt) head wondering why we'd ever buy separate duvets and covers again?
I'm already a fan... I could just do with Super King size please Marks and Spencer if you're listening. Until then this is a brilliant solution for my boys' rooms who we all know were not born with the necessary skill set required to put on a duvet cover.
Students also take note - FRESH beds are totally possible during term time. I know!!
Thank you M&S, you've always got our best interests at heart haven't you?
