Why I love Bamboo Sheets & How to Style the New Colour Range
Sustainability is a buzzword in interiors right now, and it’s something I’ve been interested in for some time. We’re seeing a shift away from mass-produced, poorly crafted furniture and decor and a move toward more eco-friendly products that don’t harm our beautiful earth. Bamboo is the perfect material to start your journey to a safer and more environmentally friendly interior. It’s good for your health, good for the planet, and looks and feels stunning.
I first heard of bamboo a few years ago as a fashion textile, but as bedlinen, it’s even better because it’s naturally silky soft, making bedtime a joy.
The manufacturing process is eco-friendly and uses no chemicals in a closed loop system, so it’s a healthier choice. It’s also superior to fabric like cotton, which requires enormous amounts of water to grow and degrades the soil each time it is harvested. On the other hand, bamboo uses very little water and is cut above the soil level, meaning the earth below is left alone.
If you’re thinking about trying bamboo sheets, Bamboo Haus has a brilliant new range of fashion-forward colours that would suit a multitude of interior styles.
I must admit, white sheets are my all-time favourite, but it’s fun to introduce colour to your bedlinen – it can really add a wow factor, plus it’s more practical than white. You can also harness the powers of colour psychology by using them – completely changing the feel of your room with a simple change of your sheets.
Light Olive is one of my favourite colours in the new range because it is such a beautiful, easy colour to live with. In nature, light green represents fresh new growth. It also represents universal peace – it is restorative, refreshing, and reassuring. Who wouldn’t want that from their bed sheets?
