All this warmer weather had me itching for some new bedding in our master bedroom. I was still smitten with our paisley bedding, but we’ve had it for quite some time and it was time to change things up a bit and bring some color into our boudoir.
Now, you have to understand something about me: 1) warm weather makes me extremely happy, and 2) I crave change. Put those two things together, plus the hubs being out-of-town, and I was on a full-on bedding hunt for 2 days straight. I hit up all of the local retailers I could think of, plus discount places like Marshall’s and Ross. I even scoured the internet for hours trying to find something that was just the right amount of color and pattern to ease my indecisive mind. And where did I find our snazzy new bedding? The mecca of all things indie and, quite frankly, not really me – Urban Outfitters.
Urban’s sunshine medallion duvet was just what I needed to feed my need for a burst of color. Sure, it’s a bit on the hippy side, but I just love the colors and the large-scale pattern. We like to let Charlie up on the bed every once in a while (shh don’t tell) so I wanted to find a duvet that had enough going on (ie. not white) that it would hide any doggy dirt. I also wanted something that would work with our existing wall color – this is totally not the way to design, but I’m too lazy to repaint the walls right now.
This bedding also made me realize how great of a purchase our neutral Tate bed was. It’s the perfect backdrop for a colorful duvet, and the simple details of the bed help to combat the wild pattern (I’m totally talking myself into this purchase, aren’t I? I swear I’m happy with it).
We decided to move the rug from our living room into the bedroom, since we have a new rug for the living room on the way. I love how the neutral rug grounds the room and it’s so nice to have something cushy for our feet to land upon on a cool, spring morning.
As always with a new purchase, I notice things that need to be tweaked in the space. Have you seen our sad and outdated Ikea table lamps? I’ve been ignoring them for some time because, again, the laziness. But now that we have something fresh and new, I’m dying for some new lamps – possibly yellow? I’m thinking I can find two thrift store lamps of different styles and tie them together with a glossy yellow finish and white drum shade. Project!
