Disclosure: Ad. The Duvet cover set is a sample of my choice from SouthShore Fine Linens. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.
A good night’s sleep starts with a great cover set
Who doesn’t like the luxurious shine of sateen? Ever since I was a child, I had adore my Granny Hannah’s sateen bed cover and bedding. When it comes to bedding cotton sateen is my favorite fabric. Of course, while sleeping I can’t see the fabric. But before falling asleep I can enjoy the nice smooth and cool feeling of sateen.
When I was in my forties, I noticed that sateen bedding causes less of these funny folds in your skin than other bedding. As we are getting older it takes longer and longer before they even out. Have you also observed this?
Thus, when SouthShore Fine Linens asked me to review a set, I immediately agreed. Who doesn’t want to wake up looking their best? And who doesn’t like to do a mini-bedroom makeover?
They are an online luxury bedding store out of Las Vegas. They offer a great collection of luxury cover sets, sheets, quilts, comforters, bedroom accessories and even towels. Their bedding comes in various prints and colors, sateen or microfiber, just to give you an idea of the breath of their products.
I picked the grand-symphony duvet cover set because I like the watercolor, abstract floral print and dark colors on white shiny sateen (see photo below for details of the print).
Not every package that feels soft is a wrapped book
When the package arrived, the mail woman left it on the table on the front porch. My hubby found it. The package was in an plastic bag envelop. Since it felt like a wrapped book, my hubby immediately opened it. I would have loved to see his face when he discovered that it was not the book I had ordered for him and that he was waiting for. 😉
When I came home from work he said “You’ve got a package that I thought was my book.” “No problem. What is it?” I responded while putting my raincoat on a hanger in the garage to dry. “When I realized it’s not my book, I put it aside. Looks like some new clothes for you.” he responded. “It’s the cover set for a review.” “Really? With such a nice fabric and chic print?”
Feeling so comfortable and special
After putting the bedding in place, it really upped to look of our bedroom. It looks now like one of these showrooms. However, the best was yet to come. It’s such a special feeling to lay down into your luxurious, cotton sateen bedding. The softness, smoothness and cool feeling after a hot day’s work. So relaxing. The new bedding still feels fresh and cool to the touch after a couple of nights. Love it!
And if there is something to the saying, “to find the best place in the house, search for the cat” this photo gives evidence for how great the bedding feels.

Product and care information
The Duvet cover set is made from 100% extra long staple cotton in a 300 thread count sateen weave. It consists of two pillow cases and a cover. The cover has insert corner ties and a beautiful button enclosure. I really like that the buttons are closed to the inside. Thus, you won’t feel them.
The fabric is breathable, crisp and cool to the touch with a beautiful charming print. Falling into a dreamy sleep has never been more luxurious at an affordable price! I also like that the set is machine washable and can be tumbled dry on low setting. This means you can wash it and use it again on the same day.
Price performance ratio
The set comes with a One Year Warranty! To be honest, I have never seen this before on any bedding I had bought. This set is currently on sale for $49.99
Let’s assume you spend three weeks of vacation per year somewhere else. Then there would be 344 nights that you sleep in your own bed. Thus, the cost per night for sleeping in this luxury cover set would be $0.15! That’s an excellent deal!
Who will love the Duvet cover set?
Cats! No, let’s get serious. Everyone who expects nothing less than upscale quality and construction will like the grand-symphony duvet cover set from SouthShore Fine Linens. It’s also a great start for everyone who wants to make over their bedroom on a budget or who wants one set that is suitable for any season.
Also people who suffer from allergies will like the sateen fabric. The mercerizing process involved in the production of sateen makes the fabric resistant to mildew. What a relief!

One year later – Update
After I got the bedding, I made the following test. I arranged that I washed the bedding and put it in the drier so I could put it onto the bed the same day. I did this for 12 months. The covers still look like new!
