New Product Review: California Design Den

Sheets are important. That is all.

Well, there’s a little bit more.

I’m one of those people who is pretty particular about their sheets. There, I said it. I have certain things I look for when it comes to purchasing sheets for the beds in our home, so when Deepak from California Design Den contacted me about reviewing a set of their sheets, of course I was super interested!

I hadn’t heard of California Design Den before, so I stopped to do a bit of research, and I was impressed by what I found. From sateens to percales, every set of their sheets are crafted using fine materials, superb craftsmanship, and eco-friendly production processes. Customers can buy their linens through retailers like Wayfair and Nordstrom Rack, and many of their sheets are also best-sellers on Amazon! In addition to sheets, the company also offers duvet covers, comforters and quilts, and their website makes it easy to shop all of their offerings by size, color and fabric.

Great! I was excited to get my sheets and see if they lived up to the hype!

As you can see, I chose a light blue color that coordinates with the blues and yellows of our Master Bedroom. I love the shade! Calming yet rich, and a great compliment to our decor.

Over drying sheets makes them rough and may result in excessive wrinkles! Quick dry, don't fry! #sheettips Click To Tweet

My first test of a new pair of sheets is how they come out of the dryer. If they’ve become twisted and rough in the dryer, I’m already agitated with them when I pull them out. But there was none of that agitation with these sheets. They came out just crisp enough to be considered “new”, but still super smooth to the touch.

Find Your Optimum Level of Cozy!

Ah, January. Everything is fresh and new and…cold. Or wet, depending.

Here in Florida? It’s wet. It’s rained for days on end now, but I happen to like the rain! If I don’t have to go out in it. If I can stay inside and let the rain fall outside, I’m pretty happy!

And when it comes to the inside of my home, I’ve always wanted it to be cozy. I’ve wanted people who visit to immediately feel at home and safe and calm in our home – and I hope I’ve accomplished that so far! But here recently, I’ve been working on making one particular room in our home “cozy”. That room is the Master Bedroom.

We’ve had the same decor in our Master Bedroom since we got married. Everything has been shades of teals and browns. One day I’ll give y’all a tour of that decor. And teal and brown is fine – but I was ready for a change!

So I started thinking…how about shades of white and blue, with some yellow thrown in? Bright, cheerful, clean, cozy and not TOO girly (for the sake of my hubby, right?)

Well, as far as I’m concerned, the first step in making sure a Master Bedroom is cozy is taking care of the bed itself. I’m a pretty frugal chick, but I’ll be honest: one thing I don’t mind splurging on is bed linens. Why? Because you can’t put a value on a good night’s sleep! And in looking for some fantastic bedding, I knew I had to check out Parachute Home.

Look what I found!
