I’ve got a bit of a bedding problem. Like most of the things I do in life, I bought my bedding without really thinking it through.
You see, my bedroom is painted this really light and airy blue-green. I loveit. It’s calming and aquatic and everything I wanted it to be. So I bought a big, fluffy bedding set in the palest blue, with a little bit of floral embroidery at the bottom.
It’s pretty and it’s cloud-like… and it’s entirely too light for a house with two kids and a cat. It’s stained and discolored and just not as pretty as when it came out of the bag.
So what’s a girl on a budget to do? I’m not about to go out and buy a new bedding set. Ours is comfy and worn in and I love it, I’d just like to hide the spots when people come over.
For the moment I have a big, fat down blanket folded at the foot of the bed. It looks a little ridiculous, but it does the trick.
I’ve decided that if I find the right combo of throw blankets and decorative pillows (yes, dear husband, I’m talking about more pillows that you’re not allowed to sleep on), I’ll have an eclectic, homey look that suits our style and hides the ugly.
Here are some of the pieces I came across in my search:
I’m basically going to hunt for texture and pieces with an earthy, natural feel. I think they’ll complement the room nicely–plus they’re good for hiding messes!
What kind of vibe do you go for in your bedroom?
