Today my good friend, Kitty and I spent the afternoon visiting Valerianne, a local luxury linen shop. I've had a desire to visit this shop since I read & posted an article from the Washington Post on the care and selection of linens earlier this year.
Kitty and I were in awe over the display and selection of linens, towels, home accessories, pillows, gifts and fragrances. There was vintage wallpaper framed ever-so-elegantly and sleepwear to make you feel like a queen. The fabric selection for custom made duvets, pillows, window treatments and just about anything you can think of for your bedroom is at your fingertips.
It was extremely gratifying to work with Aimee, the owner of Valerianne in devising a game plan for our respective bedrooms.
I decided to start with sheets first. This is where Aimee introduced me to the linens of Anichini. I selected basic ivory sheets and am very anxious to crawl into bed for my first night's rest with crisp and sturdy linens.
Our bed needs a bit of texture which Aimee helped by selecting this pillow that coordinates with the color of our walls and headboard.
Our bed is in need of a duvet cover, which will be the next step I take in the game plan we've devised for our bedroom.
It was a delightful afternoon spent in the world of linens and I'm glad we had Aimee's guidance and the company of my fellow partner-in-crime when it comes to many things, including shopping for our home.
