Earlier this year, a new company called SWENYO contacted me to see if I’d like to try out their bedding. After checking checking out the line, I said yes without hesitation. This was before we’d decided to sell the house, so I figured I’d use it in the guest bedroom. Then one thing led to another, the house went on the market, and since the duvet cover in the new apartment was just plain old white (not that there’s anything wrong with that), it seemed to make more sense to use the SWENYO stuff there.
The bedding concept at SWENYO is that you can mix and match all of their designs to get exactly the combination you want. That includes the pillowcases, too—in a set of two, you can choose the prints and colors independently of each other. I love this idea!
I went with the Helsinki duvet cover combined with a red polka dot and a purple diagonal stripe pillowcase. Such a good combination! It was easy to decide on the Helsinki (TRIANGLES and stripes! yay), but I spent a long time clicking on all of the different pillowcases and admiring the many possible options.
When the SWENYO bedding arrived, I was really impressed by how vibrant the colors looked! I put them through the wash prior to using them the first time, and they came out super soft. Since then, I’ve washed the pillowcases weekly and the duvet cover monthly, and the colors still look just as rich—even the black. The seams are nice and tight, the buttons on the duvet cover are easy to close, and the pillowcases are envelope-style. (This lone teal triangle on the Helsinki duvet cover was a really nice surprise detail. I didn’t even notice it until I had everything on the bed.)
I let the nice people at SWENYO know how happy I am with the bedding and that I want to share it on the blog, and they said I could offer Door Sixteen readers a 25% discount (!!) on everything in their shop for the next three weeks. They sell all kinds of stuff now, including furniture and a small collection of artwork. To get the discount, enter the code D16 at checkout.
And finally, one last photo of Fritz looking unbearably melancholic. I don’t know why he and Bruno refused to smile for every single photo, but it could be because they just wanted me to stop telling them to look at the camera and leave them alone to go back to their naps.
