Sferra.com - In Bed With... Amy Lau
"The Giotto sateen are my absolute favorite! They feel and look luxurious and make me look forward to eight hours of sleep every night. Every time I wash them, they get softer and softer and even more luxurious. I love the rich color options, my favorite being sea mist. They are classic, crisp, and finished off with the most perfect hem-stitched border."
Q & A with Amy
Q: Percale or Sateen?
Q: The perfect number of pillows?
Q: What type of pillow and how many of each type?
A: For sleeping I use two standard-size, high-lofting plush pillows in Siberian goose down. For decorative shams I use two queen high-lofting plush pillow, with double-stitched piping to hold the shape of the shams more fully. The right pillowcase can make or break the shape and structure of a pillow.
