It’s been three months since I took the plunge and moved in with my boyfriend. We’re still renting as it’s completely impossible for us to buy somewhere in London, which means my Pinterest boards full of beautiful wallpaper and amazing sofas are still merely a pipe dream. But there are small things I can do to make the flat a bit more palatable and it very much involves one of my favourite thing: soft furnishings.
Sheridan is an Australian interiors brand now available in the UK, focusing on quality fabrics with a decorative twist; basics that look plain but feel beautiful, and bolder prints for those of us who fancy a bit more of a statement in our bedrooms. Floral was the dominant theme in the patterned fabrics, relying on pale blues and pinks – the pastel hues reminiscent of all the coats available in stores right now, just proving that trends aren’t only a thing for your wardrobe. The piece I loved the most was actually in the kid’s section: a brightly coloured chevron blanket. I’d definitely have that thrown over a rocking chair in a bay window in my dream house. The nautical feel for the ‘safe’ bedding included some great quilted pillowcases and cylindrical cushions that I could fall asleep quite happily on.
Sheridan is going beyond furnishings now and has introduced loungewear and bathroom basics. The jumpers are slubby and comfy, perfect for lazing around the house but I know I’d wear them with skinny jeans and trainers on a blustery London morning commute. The robe could make you feel exactly as though you’re in a five-star hotel and about to hit the spa, I don’t think I’d ever take it off it I owned it.
What do you think of my little Sheridan bird pillow* as a new addition to my bed? Perfectly suited, don’t you think?
