Style by the mile has come to QVC with Phoebe Howard's new bedding line, Phoebe Howard Home.
Mrs. Howard, whose eponymous stores dot cities throughout the Southeast, has always been one of my favorite decorators. Her designs are classic yet never boring, always finding that perfect balance between antique and modern, leggy and skirted, traditional and unusual. As soon as I heard about her new bedding line, I knew I needed these sheets for my 2-year old's bedroom.
The peachy pink trim looked like it would be a good match for her ballet-slipper-pink walls, so I placed my first ever QVC order. It arrived quickly!
The sheets were nicely packaged in a zippered bag. The first thing I noticed is that the color is a bit darker than I expected. Based on the QVC pictures, I was expecting ivory or cream. These definitely lean more towards beige than I expected. But, the pink is soft, warm, and lovely, not "bubble gum" in the least, which is what I was hoping to avoid.
The cotton sateen is super soft- I have already washed and dried them, and the quality seems excellent. Various trim colors are available, including blue, green, and beige.
I hope she will continue to add pieces to the collection- so far, so good!
