I was recently lamenting on twitter that I constantly struggle to keep my white bed linen pristine. I just adore sleeping in my “fluffy white cloud” but with regular laundering the once-clinical whites have become slightly yellowed despite only being washed with other white items. I use napisan and bluo in conjunction with my regular laundry detergent but the whites continue to discolour and it’s incredibly disheartening.
I feel that I have two options short of spending a fortune replacing my linen with lovely new bright whites that will only succumb to the same fate — dunking the current lot in a tub of bleach (which may do very little), or begin introducing enough grey onto my bed to brighten the whites by comparison.
A semblance of various toned pillowcases and perhaps a light blanket for the top of the quilt for winter… these grey and white bedrooms are the perfect inspiration.
