Review Week: Kayla Organic Cotton Duvet Set by Blissliving Home

Kayla Organic Cotton Duvet Set from Blissliving Home

I’m a strange creature. Drop me off at a clothing store with no spending limit, and I’d probably walk back out without buying anything. But leave me at a homewares store, and I’d stay there all day. Actually, I’d probably camp out for a couple of days. I tend to leave a lot to be desired when it comes to “prettifying” myself, but I could prettify my home all day. This obsession with home decor means that I really love changing my bedding. It is one of the easiest ways to give a boring bedroom a whole new look. Beautiful organic bedding is probably my biggest vice. If I didn’t receive this beautiful Kayla Duvet Set to review from Blissliving Home, it’s not farfetched that I may have bought it anyway.

This gorgeous bedding is made of organic cotton and linen, and it looks and feels like something you’d find in a high-end hotel. It is covered with a graphic gingko leaf pattern in a subtle tan thread. As soon as I took it out of the packaging, I knew it was a dream fulfilled. It is luxurious and sophisticated, and the nature-inspired pattern appealed to my husband just as much. The light color meant that we had to ban my daughter from snacking or coloring on our bed, but it remained very clean without any other precautions.

The great thing about buying a duvet cover instead of a whole new comforter is that you can simply put your existing comforter inside it and you don’t have to worry about storing your bulky bedding. I had never put on a duvet cover alone before, so it was a little tricky. I ended up getting inside the duvet cover, then pulling my comforter in little by little. It was a little stuffy, but it made the task easy enough for one person.

The fabric isn’t terribly soft, but it is very smooth and sleek. It makes for a comfortable night’s sleep, particularly if filled with a plush comforter. I was a little worried about the pattern of our existing comforter showing through the light-colored duvet cover, but the fabric was thick enough to mask it completely. There are at least 2 layers of fabric, as the cover is meant to be reversible.

I have only one complaint. Although I appreciate the fact that the duvet and shams are machine washable, they got incredibly wrinkled in the wash. I expected that from the linen that trims the duvet and shams, but the organic cotton portions were just as wrinkled. It will take a good ironing before I put it back on the bed. I don’t make a habit of ironing anything except for my daughter’s clothes (I can get away with this working from home), so it may be a while before I decide to use this bedding again. Next time we use them, I may just have them laundered by an eco-friendly dry or wet cleaners to avoid this extra step.

Overall, I absolutely love the look of the Kayla set. It has a high-end look, it’s eco-friendly and it made me a fan of Blissliving Home.

    I am really glad you are doing a number of reviews on bedding. This is an important place to start being green! I have noticed that some of the companies selling organic bedding do not provide a thread count in their description. It makes it difficult to purchase online with confidence so I am glad we have you!
    Good luck in the Homies. I voted for you!

    @Lorrie You’re absolutely right. A lot of companies neglect to mention the thread count, and you don’t find out until its too late that the quality is poor. I’m glad to be a resource for you!
