Bamboo linen bliss

23/01/2017

Towards the end of last year I got my hands on a set of bamboo bed linen from Peony Living and have been meaning to tell you about it ever since. Sadly, the Christmas rush took over and I can’t quite believe that I am only getting around to this now… (insert all the shameful emojis here). 

Now it has to be said that I am a bit of a linen snob, so I was somewhat skeptical when I first laid eyes on this off-white bamboo newcomer, but as soon as I got a feel of this fabric’s texture, I was instantly sold. It has an incredibly soft, satin-like character but without the obvious shine.

Having done a bit of research, I’ve come to know that bamboo bed sheets have an impressive list of accolades. This particular collection is made from 300 thread count of sateen bamboo. The luxuriously silky-smooth fabric is manufactured from an eco-friendly source and contains naturally occurring antibacterial properties (no chemicals or dyes are used either) making it ideal for infants, kids and people with allergies. Bamboo also helps maintain the bodyโ€™s ideal temperature making you feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter – and it’s moisture wicking ability is great for people with night sweats. Who knew?

The Peony Living brand isn’t just about bed linen – the range offers a selection of bath towels and the most amazingly soft throws. I can tell you how fabulous these products are until I’m blue in the face, but you really have to feel the textures in order to fully appreciate their quality. I’ve been using my new set of bamboo bed linen for over two months now and I am a huge fan. I was ever so slightly deterred by the off-white, almost ivory colour at first, but I can confirm with conference that the colour fades with washing and is perfectly white.

My only gripe about this brand would be that it doesn’t yet include a range of linen for kids, but I suspect we won’t have to wait too long for that.

  • While the kids and I have been enjoying some quality time with special friends and fam in South Africa, the orders and enquiries over at @fronteriors are coming in thick and fast. @liveloudgirl and I couldn't be more grateful for all the love, support and enthusiasm shown towards our new venture. 
We are so excited to be sharing the next installments to our collection of doors, sides, tops and accessories for your much-loved IKEA frames. This cane cabinet (constructed with 2 x 128x60xm Besta cabinets and supported on our custom leg frame) is proving to be a firm favourite. Talk about 'furniture in disguise', eh!? image by @marli_smithphotography

  • Me just before I felt the wind temp and added another 3 layers of clothing ... ๐Ÿ™ˆโ„
  • Brrr, game drives this past weekend have been sooo cold. I think all the animals are in hiding and frankly, I don't blame them. You know the game viewing is dismal when rangers are calling in giraffe sightings on the radio! But they're still one of my favourite animals to see so no complaints here ๐Ÿฆ’๐Ÿ’›โ„๐Ÿฅถ
  • It takes a special brand of crazy to enjoy sunset swims in rough water in the middle of winter. These kids have it in abundance. #holidays #kzn #saltrock #southafrica #travelwithkids #bestofhome #bestoftimes
  • Sorry about the radio silence around here but our first week in South Africa has been a very busy whirlwind. We settled into #hawkesholidayhome and then headed into the Midlands to drive my niece and nephew back to their boarding schools. While we were there, we made a mini vacay of it with a two night stay at beautiful Gowrie Farm. We visited loads of places, including the iconic sculpture of Madiba at the Nelson Mandela capture site. We're loving the weather and catch-ups with loads of friends and family, but really looking forward to getting into the bush at Zuka this weekend for some proper downtime with Ouma.
  • We've had such a wonderful 2 night stay at @housedatdru on Gowrie Farm. It's such a beautiful estate with so much to see and do in the area. Highly recommend
  • Crisp winter evenings in the KZN midlands are just magical. We are loving our stay at @housedatdru

  • It's so good to be back home in crisp, fresh air, lush greenery and small boutique stores everywhere!

  • The epic summer exit pack has begun and by this time tomorrow I'm going to be (hopefully) chilling right here in our living room at #hawkesholidayhome ... Actually, who am I kidding!? There will first have to be the epic unpack, and then I guess we'll need some grocery shopping done, and then the kids will be nagging me to go to the beach. But we'll be 'home' and it won't feel like someone left the oven door open. So that''s something to get excited about!
