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.

On Having House Guests

We love to have people over to our home. It’s just one of those things, I guess. Our feeling is that God gave us this home, and so we feel led to share it with others! That may mean a simple dinner, or a weekend stay, or a place to crash in tough times, or a variety of other things. Regardless of the circumstances, our doors are always open!

So you can imagine that I like to be prepared for whatever may come, right? (If you have been with me here on the blog for ANY amount of time, you KNOW that’s the truth! Ha!) In lieu of that fact, I wanted to share a few thoughts about having house guests.

What I Do

Keep lots of linens on hand! I never want anyone to feel like they have to ration the amount of towels in the bathroom. If you need a towel for your hair, one for your body and one for…well…I can’t think of something else, so whatever you may need another one for, you will always find them in our guest bathroom. Extra pillows are good, in case yours aren’t the same as theirs, and they need some extra cushion comfort. And extra blankets are good, too, in case anyone gets cold!
