I'm usually pretty confident in my design decisions, but oh man oh my oh me, if there's one area where I'm a fish out of water, it's in picking out bedding. I'm in the process of doing a little bedroom makeover (rug, headboard, bedding), and would really love to upgrade from my old white duvet when it's all said and done. It's been great, but I'm ready for something a little more special, and maybe some more interesting patterns and colors.
To me, nothing beats the look of crisp white bedding with a lovely monogram. In my ideal world, this is my inspiration:
Whatever happened to the Tinz? Haven't see much of her lately. She does have great taste in bedding though.
However, in the real world (ie with pets), it's not always super-practical to have a fluffy white cloud of a bed. So I'm thinking that maybe I need something a little more practical...maybe still white bedding but some kind of decorative blanket cover to throw on top? Like so...
I would take everything about this bed in a second! The headboard, the dust ruffle, the bedding, oh and the chair...yes.
Even a throw blanket might do the trick.
Love the colors here! I'd never think of doing a white headboard, but it looks great with these suzani-inspired colors.
Love this too, but might I say that the monograms these days are getting a bit in-your-face? These aren't too outrageous, but I've seen some other pics where the monograms are super-sized!
Oh, and then there's the to-be-determined headboard to grapple with. There are SO many factors that go into creating a bedroom, especially with textiles. It's daunting, isn't it? I need to hire MoS Charlotte as my decorator!
