Perched high on the hill above the harbour in Gaeta in the Lazio region of Italy is a neutral nirvana. A monochromatic palette with the attention on textural contrast and natural finishes is cool and chic. Smooth sophistication by Rome-based architect and designer Stefano Dorata.
A sprawling Bridgehampton house and the stylish curation of designer Timothy Godbold translates to a traditional vernacular mixed with clean modern lines, vintage with high end, natural materials, effortless sophistication and a casual summertime chic. It’s my Hamptons dream not some clichéd nightmare. (You can see my previous post on Timothy’s work here.)
Dear readers, let me start off by saying this is a sponsored post. The items I am reviewing here were gifted to me. Everything I am about to tell you about these items is 100% true and my honest opinion. These items sat in boxes for a week or 2 before I was able to unpack them and try them out. And once I did this past Friday it was, I kid you not, a GAME CHANGER.
Saatva is one of the top mattress companies in America. They recently launched Saatva Dreams – an affordable yet luxurious line of sheets and pillows. The sheets are silky-soft sateen in a 300-thread count, long-staple, organic cotton weave and the pillows are plush, weighty, hotel-quality pillow with eco-friendly, supportive, shredded American Talalay latex. I’ll talk more about them in a bit. Here is a shot of what I received:
Let me start by saying I am a sucker for good packaging, and Saatva Dreams scored big time. My 2 king-sized pillows arrived in a zip-up bag (that I am going to reuse to store off season blankets) and the 2 sheet sets came in beautiful boxes that I will also reuse. Then inside the boxes the sheets were wrapped in tissue, and under the tissue was a thick canvas sack (also reusable!) with the sheets inside. Whoa!
And here they are. 2 king sized pillows, and 2 king sized grey and ivory sheets (the sheets also come in white).
I was really impressed when I first handled them at how plush the pillows felt, and how soft the sheets were. I have to tell you how this all went down so you fully understand how awesome these products are. I spent Friday afternoon unpacking all of this, making my bed with the grey sheets and ivory pillow cases, ironing (first and last time I iron sheets), and taking photos. When I was done all of that I decided to watch a bit of TV in bed and see how I felt about the new set-up. And that’s basically where my life changed. I spent a good 3 hours cuddled up in bed with some of the cats until I finally had to climb out for dinner, and as soon as I finished eating I climbed back in and did not leave until the following morning. I KID YOU NOT. These pillows and sheets are the best I have ever owned. It felt like I was living it up in a hotel room lounging like a queen. They really are a game changer, and I cannot sing their praises enough. (I showed up at work on Monday telling anyone who would listen about them – LOL!) I have slept better since using them than I have in a really long time. If you’re in the market for sheets and pillows, you MUST give these a try. And if you’re not in the market, treat yourself. Or put them on your Christmas list and have someone else treat you. They will take your netflix and chillin’ to a whole other level. 😉

I have serious bedroom envy after finding this new location home on Shoot Factory so I had to spread the love with you all. I want the bed soooooo badly. But I’d paint it black. And the wooden legs holding up the mattress. The rest of this home is pretty fabulous too. Those crown moldings are what dreams are made of.
French designer Mathieu Lehanneur is a magician. Who else can conjure up liquid marble, ripples in stone? At least that is how it seems. It’s art. It’s design. Concept versus reality, poetry versus science. No limits. Just let your imagination run away to his marble bedroom in the Hotel de la Monnaie for AD Intérieurs 2017.
