The Instagram image above can probably be traced back to what first triggered my adult baby blanket itch. (I have a burner IG handle that I use for following home inspo accounts, interior designers, furniture, and decor brands — it's my safe space on the app.) This image was originally posted by @interiorbygini
, a Vienna-based 'Grammer of ethereal home aesthetics. Or, at least, I think she was the first; it's been reposted so many times by other accounts, that it's a constant in my feed. Look at that bedding! The warm light has just slipped away from the bed's sea of sumptuous cotton muslin, making it the most ideal place on Earth for what was previously referred to as a lazy disco nap. I envisioned myself descending beneath those layers of luxury for a moment of soft reflection — or, if choosing not to muss up the entire masterpiece, simply sliding under its airy top layer.
