Thursday Thrill – A Day in Bed

Haven't you had those days where you could lie in bed forever? Not the "Uhg, I don't want to get up, I'm so freakin' tired" kind of morning, but the "Ahh, these sheets feel glorious and it's the weekend. Oh honey??? Could you make breakfast today? I'll have toast and tea in bed please. Thank you." kind of mornings. These are rare, but beautiful to me. The mornings that you can wake up feeling...strangely...happy? Not disgustingly tired, but refreshed. I'm actually afraid to let my toes hit the floor on those mornings. Afraid that that bubble will quickly burst. But oh, those mornings of leisure and comfort do come and if I were to have one soon, I would want these items in my bedroom as I awake...

A Day in Bed

100% organic cotton sateen duvet cover with colored stitching
Organic Bed Linen with Colored Stitching by FeneroArt
   
I would wake slowly, feeling crisp, cool sheets on my legs. Stretching my toes, the smooth sateen texture of organic fabric would softly caress my skin.

Women's Lingerie with Lace Trim by Sandmaiden Sleepwear

Of course, in my dream morning, I would wake up looking adorably tousled in gorgeous lingerie. Does this...scratch that...has this ever happened? Not yet, but I'm optimistic about the future.

Soft, morning light would start to filter into the bedroom through gauzy curtains. Once the rays reached the mirror hanging above the bed, sparkling prismatic images would burst into dance across the room.

Vintage Kimono Robe with embroidered flowers and butterflies
Antique Embroidered Liberty Robe from La Sartoria

Gently slipping on a vintage silk kimono, I would quietly get back into bed, open the morning newspaper (on my iPad) (I don't have one, but this is my dream so work with me), and await the breakfast that I can already smell toasting.

Organic Lavender Sachets by Gardenmis

As I adjust myself on the bed into a comfortable seated position, the scent of lavender would start to become apparent and I would smile, remembering that I had left a sachet in my kimono pocket to freshen it a few days before.

Aromas of steaming tea, buttered toast, and lavender now mix together into the scent of what will surely be the perfect morning.

  10. Omgosh! I seriously just want to run back home, jump into bed and pretend this is happening to me!! Yes I love those mornings! Especially when I feel like I wake up looking just gorgeous and flawless (but course I haven't picked up a mirror at this point, I just like to relish the moment). Goodness this was an amazing reminder that I need more days like this

    Happy Thursday!

  29. I know just what you mean - I adore "clean sheet day" (the day each week when you change the sheets) because of how crisp and fresh the linens feel, the way they make you want to camp out in bed all day, and how you wish all the world could feel that soft, comforting and lovely 24/7.
