My husband has been complaining about our bedding FOREVER.
He doesn't particularly care about how it looks. Although I think he has vague positive feelings about that. It's a very layered, gray look.
(Heads up, I'm a West Elm bedding fanatic so expect lots of links to WE in this post)
Organic Ikat Sheet Set, with a white background and a charcoal gray pattern.
Next we layer on this herringbone woven blanket. It's no longer available, sadly.
OH, let me also note that we have the stripe Euro shams, and a couple of standard shams in the Chevron Pattern. I'm a fan.
So, what were we to do about this. We decided we needed to get a quilt. We would keep the herringbone blanket and layer a quilt over it (I'm not a fan of comforters, I'm grossed out by them for some reason).
I got a little reward gift certificate from work this week and as soon as I got that west elm card in my hot little hands, I was ready to purchase. Between the reward and some West Elm Design Dollars we had, I was able to pay for the entire quilt. I also got some shams in different patterns (we'll be keeping the chevron but dropping the stripe entirely I think).
I'm super excited about it.
But I'm also excited about the fact that my bed won't just be white and gray anymore.
Nope, white, gray, and coral baby.
This is the quilt we chose. I love both sides, and love the red orange (they call it coral) color.
I also got a great kitchen rug on super sale for $14. It's also coral. I'm so excited!
