The cactus is surely one of the more bizarre inhabitants of our planet. Its spines were originally leaves that developed into resistant thorns through evolution. Twinned with its ability to withstand sweltering desert heat on little water, it has come to represent endurance, protection and maternal love. So sleep tight with cactus bedding.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary: an enchanted forest of dreams; a serene, calm desert of peace. It’s where you charge your batteries. Where you get those forty winks. Where you indulge in some much-needed R&R after a long and tiring day.
Natural scenes can help your mind escape the hustle and bustle of modern urbanity, helping you to drift away to somewhere calm and tranquil. In many ways, cactus bedding is perfect. Cacti stand tall in the remotest parts of the desert, enduring harsh conditions no other could. When the going gets tough and we feel defeated, cacti can be an important reminder to keep calm and carry on. And what better sentiment is there to fall asleep to?
It’s gettin’ hot in here
Many of us can’t sleep when it’s too hot. And cool sheets can be a godsend in those sweltering summer nights. Enter: cactus bedding. Cacti keep their cool in the hottest of conditions. Nestled away deep in the scorching desert, they remain lively and rejuvenated with their secret supply of quality H2O. Not only that: their fresh nopal juice has a wide range of health benefits to humans. On and off the sheets, cacti are an effective way to stay in check.
As cool as cacti
Cacti are pretty hot right now. And we’re not talking about temperature here. These plants are right on trend, from high-street fashion to interior design. Their prickly exoticism has continued to be a source of inspiration to us all. And they’re not the only spikey addition to hipdom of late. Pineapples are also making ripples through our visual culture.
Looking to add some style to your bedroom? A cactus duvet cover is sure to do the trick. Because owls are so 2016. A contender for next year’s trend animal? Our money’s on hummingbirds, but you never know.
