We were approached by interiors brand CMYK Living to see if Harry and Teddy wanted to try their bed linen. CMYK Living employs highly skilled artisans in India who use traditional techniques to create beautiful, as well as fun prints to adorn soft furnishings.
When we received the bed linen, Harry was immediately drawn to the Tuk Tuk design of his single duvet set. The colours feel sophisticated without being dull so easily appeal to both kids and adults. The attention to detail in the designs means that they have made sure the reverse print is as eye-catching as the print on the front. This means different combinations of the same set can provide multiple options within a bedroom.
Each CMYK Living piece is block-printed by hand which makes every item unique. We love the way the patterns can be mixed and matched. Teddy’s cot bed set from the Parrot range in blue and green worked beautifully with Harry’s Tuk Tuk set – in fact, Teddy insisted he have the Tuk Tuk pillow case in his cot with his set from the Parrot Range and both designs complimented each other perfectly. The traditional Indian techniques work fabulously with the modern designs used, which fitted easily within the colour schemes in boys’ bedrooms.
We were all impressed with how soft the cotton was. CMYK Living uses 300 thread-count Cambric, a lightweight, closely woven plain cotton onto which to produce their designs. We feel the linen will only get softer the more it is washed which makes snuggling up at night for a bedtime story all the more appealing. Along with the wonderful bed linen produced, CMYK Living also offer floor cushions (perfect for a reading nook), bed cushions, quilts to cosy up in, bolster covers and Dohars (Summer blankets made up of three layers of muslin which can be used in numerous ways; from stroller covers, to swaddling blankets, to an impromptu picnic blanket and more).
To coincide with this post, CMYK Living have kindly offered to do a giveaway with a prize being either a single or cot bed linen set in the pattern of your choice.
