Serene Sheer Linen Bed Spread

We clipped another lovely, doable idea from the idiotic New York Times T Magazine article a few weeks ago about the Axel Vervoordt-designed “wabi wabi” penthouse at NYC’s Greenwich Hotel. 

A sheet linen bed spread. We thought right away of Rough Linen’s lovely Summer Cover, made of lightweight linen. We used one as a bed skirt and it is wonderfully sheer.Just figure a size that will cover your bed about to the floor. If you iron it, it will look similar to the one at top. But we love linen au naturel (which is more wabi wabi).

…Here’s how the Summer Cover bedskirt looked when ironed.

Of course, there’s no rule that says it needs to be hemmed. We’re big fans of ripped linen…
