Sheets With Soul


I just love Adele. Love her! The British singer is really inspirational, isn’t she? I remember seeing her perform recently at the Grammy Awards and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Adele had just recovered from vocal surgery, and she still did such an amazing job! She totally brought the house down!

Now she’s more popular than ever. I think every time I get in my car and turn on the radio, one of her songs must come in 9 out of 10 times! I also can’t pass a magazine without seeing her face on the cover. She’s just everywhere these days.

I think it’s because she sings from her heart. She puts it all out there with such passion in her voice. Maybe it’s just me but I can “feel” her emotions as she belts out each song. Whether it’s her raspy voice on “Rolling in the Deep,” the heart-wrenching “Someone Like You,”  or the soulful “Set Fire to the Rain,” I just can’t stop listening to her.  All kinds of music are fun, but songs that really touch you are something else.

Of course I feel the same way about bedding! LOL! So in honor of Adele, I began sorting through all of the wonderful collections on to find the perfect sets that mirror Adele’s style. What I mean is, the ones that are jazzy, emotional and even a bit soulful. I can’t promise that you’ll win any awards by sleeping in these sheets, though. But hopefully they’ll give you a great emotional experience. And a good night’s sleep.

How can you not love this Ava Bedding set from Steve Madden? The black color gives it a soulful sort of feel but the ivory embroidered design adds a feminine touch. Plus the colorful trim gives off a hint of fun.

Nicole Miller’s City Square Peacock line feels pretty jazzy to me. It’s a fun, bright blue design that mixes a little bit of sophistication with colors that really pop. That’s how jazz feels to me.

This Laura Ashley Addison bed set is definitely feminine but the patterns give off a tough almost regal feel too. Like a person putting up a strong front, while inside their emotions are real fragile.

Instead of a sophisticated sort of jazzy feel, this Starr set from Steve Madden is more of a bold jazz with some excitement and fun tossed in.

I hope you enjoyed “soul”-searching with me! Now I’m off to charge up my iPod and let Adele tug at my heart strings.

Have a great week!
