Bed Time with olive and elle.

    Here at o&e, we tend to consider ourselves bedding fanatics. We could go on and on about the quality of sheets, the different types of cotton, thread count, the loft of duvets and....well you get the idea, we love bedding!! These things excite us and we are always happy to share our tips and tricks for the perfect nights sleep! In fact with summer upon us we thought we'd show you some of our favourite items for the bedroom that will have you wishing the sun didn't rise quite so early this time of year. 
Duvets are where the bed really starts. All of our duvets and pillow inserts are made by St.Geneve , a Canadian company located in Richmond B.C. While traditional feather duvets provide the fluffy-ness we crave on cool fall and winter nights, we suggest switching to a silk duvet for summer, the lighter filling is perfect for those warm evenings.
Treat yourself to these luxurious 300 thread count Capri sheets from St. Geneve . The Egyptian Cotton Sateen fabric is milled in Italy and available in...are you ready...98 glorious colours! 
Satin Pillowcases sky-rocketed to fame thanks to  Oprah (one of her favourite things). These amazing pillowcase save your hair from bedhead, and your skin from any little sleep lines on the face. Bella Notte makes our favourite version, available with or without lace detail in 19 different colours. 
And for the top of the bed, pictured in this photo... Angelica duvet cover by Revelle, a beautifully relaxed linen duvet cover by Bella Notte along with one of their Chesapeake coverlets to either lay at the foot of the bed or use with a top sheet during the summer months.

Caldrea makes some of the best cleaning products and their laundry detergent is no exception!
Available in 6 fabulous scents including Sea Salt Neroli, Sweet Pea and Lavender Pine, all perfect for summer! 
The final product! A mix of Revelle and Bella Notte Linens atop our Dwell Studio Bed!
One more thing...the cherry on top, if you will. A House & Home Candle (New York) specifically for the Master Bedroom. This candle combines the scents of relaxing Chamomile and Lavender. Perfection. Sweet Dreams.
