Lately I seem to be jumping around from room to room, project to project, but I guess that’s what happens when you are renovating…your mind has no home and everything (I mean, everything) is all over the place. This week, I promise to update you on the kitchen, bathroom, and a few other lingering items that have been in the mix. As for today, we’re talking bedding.
A long while ago I blogged about being on the hunt for new bedding. Well, nearly 6 months later, I’m proud to report I’ve finally pieced together our master bedroom bedding. You see, bedding is hard. Like really hard. For one, it’s expensive. Like there’s-no-way-I’d-spend-that-much-on-a-pillow expensive. Bedding can also dramatically impact or dictate a room, so it’s nothing to take lightly. It’s a big decision and you need to like it, errr, love it. And finally, landing on something that’s going to be practical and comfortable makes it even more tricky. For instance, I reaaaalllly wanted another white duvet cover, but my last white duvet is nearly brown. White is pretty, but it doesn’t stand the test of time in the bedroom, unless you are crazy clean, which I am not.
Here is the mix I finally landed on…
1.) Verdin Euro by John Robshaw – available at Manor Fine Wares
2.) Gray Polka Dot Sheets – available at Schoolhouse Electric
3.) Washed gray stitched pillowcases – available at West Elm
4.) Striped edge sheet set/pillowcases – available at West Elm
5.) Belgium Linen comforter cover – available at Restoration Hardware
As you guys probably know by now, I’m not a big fan of flowers or overly feminine prints. Thus, finding bedding for me was a challenge, because there’s lots of floral sheets and pillows out there. Don’t get me wrong, paisley/floral/feminine prints are beautiful, they are just not for me, or Kyle for that matter. So I stuck with neutral gray colors, added in some fun flare with polka dotted sheets, and I’m trying out a linen duvet cover.
We’re still waiting for our bed frame to arrive (our one furniture purchase for the “new” home) so once I get our bedding on our actual bed, I will surely snap some photos!
Cheers to the week….and counting down the day until Christmas. Only 15 more to go!
