Master Bedroom Bedding

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!

    Gorgeous! I love that you pulled from so many different sources. And, that John Robshaw sham is AMAZING.

  2. Caitlin Said:

    I have the same linen duvet cover from RH – love it!

  3. Heather Said:

    Love it!!!! Can’t wait to see the whole bed put together! And I’m itching to know what gray paint you chose from your other post… I’m currently trying to find the “perfect” gray for my daughter’s room. Most grays look too blue/lavender in her room, which is totally NOT the look I’m going for. Excited to see what you picked! : )

    I’m in the exact same boat re: master bed linens. Thought I could handle white, but it just doesn’t work for us. Then I found a print that I thought would be perfect as a duvet cover, but the sample just didn’t look right in the room just didn’t. Staring to think linen is the way to go and BAM! Here’s your post. Love that John Robshaw print mixed in with the solids…your entire bedding selection may just end up on our bed as well ;)

    Love your choices! Grey is such a calm, serene color. I love, love, love linens. I am always on the hunt for a new combination. Congratulations, can’t wait to see everything all put together!

  6. Bailey Said:

    I recently bought the same linen duvet in the same color from RH and it’s awesome! My only complaint is that it gets very wrinkled quickly, but that is an aspect of linen I can live with.

  7. Lauren Said:

    Love these linens. I really love the colors for bedding.

  8. Kate S. Said:

    Wow. I can’t believe how well your mix came out! I have always had bedding from “collections” so that everything was pre-matched for me until our current house. I took chances and mixed some different pieces myself and it came out pretty well, but not so well as yours. I’m impressed you managed to find so many different pieces that worked so well together. Can’t wait to see it in the room!
