Lighten Up

The weather this spring has been a bit bipolar. It's hot and summer-like one minute, and then cold and rainy the next. Time to lighten up what you've got on your bed. This linen quilt is the right weight for such weather.

You know how it works. You still need something to fend off the chill, but not something so heavy that you wake up sweaty and hot. Linoto's quilted coverlets are made of beautiful linen and unbleached, American-made cotton fill. Because linen is breathable and dries quickly, it makes a great fabric for sheets and blankets.

If I didn't already have Linoto sheets and a duvet cover, this would be at the top of my wish list. These rich graphite gray and indigo blue colors are gorgeous, but it's also available in a natural oatmeal and a crisp white. Machine washable, made in NYC.
