How to Make Home a Haven (Plus, a Huge Sale)

How do you wind down at night? Lately, I’ve been watching funny movies and reading gripping books while wrapped in our softest winter sheets. Brooklinen, the Brooklyn-based bedding brand that we’ve loved and used in our home for a decade, is kicking off their Black Friday Sale by offering 20% off site-wide. Here are our long-time favorites…


Comfy bedding makes the biggest difference when it comes to feeling well rested, don’t you think? Overnight guests always ask about these buttery smooth sheets, and these duvets feel crisp and cool, just like in hotels. To add a warm touch to our living room, I love this beautiful wool throw. It’s perfect for a low-key night in, chatting with friends next to the fireplace.

I’m always thinking of different ways to make our home feel like a haven, like playing music and cooking eggs and toast for the boys at breakfast. After a long day, I turn on glowy lighting and cuddle under a weighted cotton blanket. It’s magically comforting and feels like a hug. I’ve also been bringing a silk sleep mask on trips and always wake up feeling refreshed. As for loungewear, I’m very into these pajamas, which comes in really cute prints.

What’s your bedtime routine? These days, one of my evening rituals is taking spa-like showers, followed by fluffy towels and a plush robe. Showering in the dark can feel really calming before bed, especially with a flickering candle.

Best of all: Brooklinen is having a huge sale, from now through November 29th. All Brooklinen products are 20% off, and you can save even more with their bundle discount (automatically applied at checkout). See everything here — including linen sheets and sweet quilts.

How about you? How are you getting comfy this season?
