The Perfect Blanket


I love my bed and have done lots of research and experimenting to have everything exactly the way I like it. I have shown you my Annie Selke gold leaf canopy bed that is my favorite piece in my home.



I have also posted about my Casper Original Pillows, Serena & Lily sheets, and silk pillowcases by Quince and Hill House Home.

My newest addition at the suggestion of my daughter is my ChappyWrap blanket. I had resisted it despite reading many positive reviews because I had mistakenly equated it with fleece blankets that I frankly find cheesy. But my daughter has wonderful taste and we like all the same things, so I decided to try one. I got this one because I love stripes and the colors are perfect for my bed.

The blankets are the brainchild of a mother-daughter team - the mom's name is Beth and the name ChappyWrap comes from Chappaquidick on Martha's Vineyard.

Polar fleece blankets don't wash well and are prone to static, pilling, and fuzz and on the high end, wool and cashmere blankets need dry cleaning, are expensive, and often are not that soft and comfortable.

The ChappyWrap is made in Germany and Poland of natural cotton blended with performance fabrics for repeated washing and is made to last a lifetime. It is completely machine washable and dryable.

It can be used on the beach, on a boat, in the car, on a picnic, for pets, and for kids, as well as on the couch or the bed. I love the preppy designs. There is lots of blue and white. It is available in smaller sizes too for kids or the sofa or reading in a a chair. They are reversible. When Maine artist Sara Fitz, a watercolor artist, designed the nautical ginger jars, it sold out in under an hour. It has finally restocked.

This blanket is the best I have ever used bar none. It is incredibly soft and luxurious. It is lightweight yet warm. I have been sleeping so well with it. It is amazing the difference a blanket can make in your sleep.

Good Housekeeping awarded it Best Blanket of 2021 saying:

For your bed, the sofa or on the go, the ChappyWrap blanket is both handy and comfortable, and it comes in lots of gorgeous prints.

LAB RESULTS: The cotton-blend fabric stayed soft and pill-free after washing. Users loved its versatility, calling it “perfect for snuggling up.”

A ChappyWrap would make a very welcome Christmas gift as well. 


  1. Fabulous. Simply dreamy. I'd spend a large part of my day in this room. Dreaming. I have a pair of the Ralph Lauren lamps as you have on the right side of your bed -- our movers crushed the shades & I cannot locate replacements. 😞 Not even at The Lamplighter. I love these lamps. Great in the bedroom, kitchen, mantle shelf.

    1. I have many RL lamps large and small and love them too. HomeGoods still has these small ones all the time in various bases@ $39.99. Just buy them for the shades and sell the bases.
