I'm a huge fan of textile artist Amy Butler and her exuberant fabric patterns. My home reflects my enthusiasm, from the easy panel curtains I've sewn from her fabric line to the craft and lifestyle books that she's authored that populate my bookshelves.
Even so, sometimes a room can benefit from the introduction of a more subtle pattern. That's why I was pleased to have the opportunity to try out Amy Butler's new line of coverlets ($40 to $180). While they still use patterns in their designs, it's a lot more subtle, with a repeating thread motif sewn into the fabric of the pillows and blankets.
See what I thought of the coverlet!
I loved the contrasting periwinkle and deep purple tones in the Dream Daisy Coverlet ($150). The daisy stitching adds a sweet touch, and you can get matchy-matchy by purchasing coordinating shams and toss pillows as well.
I'd definitely recommend using this coverlet as a top layer on your bed in the Winter months — while it's warm, it's still cotton and will need at least another layer to keep you warm through the night. However, it's a perfect light blanket for Spring and Summer, and I'm excited to introduce it solo on my bed as soon as the temperatures warm again.
Another compelling reason to buy this product is because it's made from organic cotton. While I love dressing myself and my home in natural fabrics, it's important to remember that conventional cotton uses a nasty cocktail of insecticides, fungicides, pesticides, and other harmful chemicals to grow. While both cotton and organic cotton use a lot of water, organic cotton contributes fewer nasty chemicals to the environment — and to your home.
