So we just got our house plans started to build a home. We are excited because it means we are closer to achieving one of our goals. Not only will a HUGE life goal be completed once it’s finished we will also finally be able to feel like we can settle into a forever home. The last two homes we have lived in I have felt so unsettled; not in material items but mentally, I just knew that the foundation of the home that was holding my family was not ours...I knew we wouldn’t be there long so my mind just didn’t want to get any attachment leaving me unsettled/anxious. We started building our “foundation” on our dreams and each other and it has worked well for now. I have realized that a strong ‘foundation’ no matter what you build it on family, religion, your dreams etc. is important in this life. Not only is a strong foundation mentally important it is also important in the items that we choose to bring into our home; which is why we went with The Company Store for our basic bedding. Basics are the foundation to bedding, and to build a strong bedding foundation I decided I needed to go with quality!
I have started off with these basics: pillows, pillow cover, sheets, and a comforter. I have my eyes on one of their duvet covers but I decided to stick to just the basics to build my foundation. I went with the Bamboo/cotton comforter in color shell because it was such a soft pretty pink with more of an orange undertone and with all these boys around I wanted to bring some femininity to my home somewhere. It’s SO soft-without even washing it! I’m just going to come out right now and just say it- EVERYTHING I own from The Company Store is SO soft and cozy, and I am very picky, especially when it comes to my pillow cases.
For the pillow cases I went with two Velvet Lace Flannel Bedding pillowcases and two Bamboo/Cotton Shams to match my comforter. I like the shams and how they fold in the back to ensure the pillows will stay in. Velvet Lace Flannel pillowcases are thick enough I don’t have to worry about my pillows getting ruined, and the pretty lace detail is just gorgeous! I actually went with the Velvet Lace Flannel sheets as well just because I knew I couldn’t surpass the lace detail with the shell color comforter, and they will keep me warmer because I am always so cold at night. I was worried about ‘pilling’ happening because that’s what happens to most of my flannel sheets and I am a pleased to announce that everything remained as though it was brand new!
We also got NEW pillows!! That’s like getting new socks or new underwear...if your like me if I had limitless money I would have a new pair do socks and undies everyday...let’s just add pillows to that list too! These pillows made me want to hit the hay as soon as I laid on them. I went with the Supreme Down Pillow I was worried about ordering pillows I online because I am such a touch type of person, but I will say these pillows did not disappoint! I’m so glad I took the plunge and got quality basic items, that really aren’t that basic at all, from The Company Store to help me to build a strong foundation for my bedroom.
