My new bedding from Aura 

I was SO stoked when the folks of Australian company Aura (one of our long-time advertisers and designers of a really amazing line of bed linen, homewares and rugs) emailed recently with the fantastic news that some of their bedding is now available in Canada at Hudson's Bay! WOHOO!!! To my delight the kind ladies of Aura offered to send my a duvet cover set and 2 pillows. YES!!! I have always purchased duvet covers at Ikea...and not that there is anything wrong with that but now I see what I have been missing. It was a reeeeally hard choice to make but in the end I went with the Lattice Lime duvet cover set, and the jumbo stripe and dipped decorative pillows. The duvet cover is soooo comfy, in a cotton/linen blend on the front (gawd I love linen bedding!!!) with a cotton back that is satiny soft (and neon piping for that extra oomph). The pillows are 100% linen with feather inserts so they are just divine. I am over the moon with this new bedding, and despite having done nothing with my bedroom since buying this house, I was excited to get some sort of design happening with the new bedding as inspiration. Pay no attention to the bland wall colour as that will change eventually, but to my surprise the bedding just blends right in. Thanks to Aura my bedroom looks pretty amazing if I may say! P.S. Aura isn't sold at all Hudson's Bay locations but that doesn't matter because you can order online!

Any chance they have stockists in Ireland or even the UK ? The bedding you chose is divine but how you've arranged your bedroom is exquisite. I cant stop scrolling up and down drooling !

Beautiful bedding. Great camera work there too, Kim!

Hi Cliodhna

Unfortunately we don't have any stockists in the UK & Ireland at this moment. You can order online from Australia and there's $15 flat shipping to UK & Ireland. I hope that helps.

Thanks Jaine @ Aura

What is the watering can made of? I've been looking for hot pink pottery with no luck.

Thank you so much Cliodhna and Nicole!
Peggy, it's made from flexible PVC. Not pottery.
