I like my husband a lot, but he has this really annoying habit…
In the morning, when the sun is peeking through the blinds, and the dog is stretching at the foot of our bed, he engages me in conversation. “GOOD MORNING!” he’ll say a little too loudly. How’d you sleep? Should we do something fun today? Are you going for a run now or later?
Not helping matters is the fact that our bed is ridiculously comfortable. A few years ago, we switched to the Brooklinen sheets and duvet, and any hope of my becoming the kind of woman who throws opens the drapes to greet the day seems to be getting further and further out of reach.
Brooklinen’s sheets are so soft and luxurious that every morning feels like I’m waking up in a grand hotel, on vacation from my own life. I’m a new convert to linen sheets, and I love how airy and breathable they are.
Even though I like color in the rest of the house, I tend to lean towards calming neutrals in the bedroom. Above is Brooklinen’s duvet cover in cream and the linen core sheet in caramel stripe. (I also love the chambray.) Note! If anyone else is shopping for their kid’s dorm room bed, Brooklinen sheet sets also come in Twin XL. Score!)
Plus, their loungewear is so comfy, maybe too comfy?
Every now and then — usually after reading a click-baity article about what CEOs accomplish before six a.m. — I’ll try to match my husband’s energizer bunny, and get myself up to walk the dogs with a cold brew. I’m going to do this every day, I say, my confidence fueled by endorphins and caffeine. But inevitably, the next morning, when the alarm goes off, I pull those soft sheets over my eyes and think: only 14 more hours until I get to be back here again.
Brooklinen is a brand that we’ve loved and used for years, and we highly recommend them. Bonus for all readers: Brooklinen is offering 15% off your entire order, good through August 31st. Discount automatically applied at checkout. (Joanna swears by these!)
