Ever since, I first saw and felt these beautiful Gingerlily bed sheets and cushions in Hoopers of Tunbridge Wells, they have been playing on my mind. I have always wanted a nude pink bedroom, it seems so decadent and of course – is just the colour I imagine when I watch Ginger Rogers lolling about in those old black and white movies with Fred Astaire.Digging deeper beyond the aesthetics, I discovered that silk is not only beautiful, but naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites. Brilliant for me as I suffer from Asthma – and it always seems to get worse in the Winter, with the cold air. Do you have any allergies?Made from the finest ‘A’ grade mulberry silk, the bedding adjusts to your body temperature, and is kind to the skin and hair – so no more waking up like Helena Bonham Carter in Sweeney Todd! Anti Ageing and less absorbent than cotton, silk helps skin retain its natural moisture; keeping it soft, supple and helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
These items in pale colours above just went straight to the top of my birthday wish list! The beaded cushion would surely knock Daisy Buchanan’s Great Gatsby socks off – see the full collection here, and the simple white silk pillow case in a gift box would be a beautiful present for anyone.Sorry for all the film references, but this really is vintage style movie star living for your home. Classic, stylish and actually good for you!
