Iknow it’s almost Christmas Day, but for those of you who are still home and online surfing the web like me, thanks for stopping by. I’ve been baking and getting ready to start cooking for real on Thursday, since I’m hosting Christmas dinner for Peter’s family this year.
if you’ve been reading my blog awhile, you’ve seen my master bedroom, but there are some changes going on in there and I’d love your opinions. I have had a creamy colored matelasse with matching king shams on this bed for 4 years now and I love matelasse, but didn’t love how this one was wearing. I had put a blue blanket across it from the first and the threads from the blue blanket had “pilled” onto the coverlet and I have never been able to get it all off and looking great again. I’ve washed it and washed it (even tried shaving it) and that little bit is still there in the fibers of the coverlet and it irks me. 🙂 You can’t see it unless you’re close up on it, but I know it’s there.
So, I’ve been on the lookout for something that could come in and join all the other fabrics on this bed without having to start over. I was really just going to try to find another matelasse and change it out and keep everything else. I strolled through Homegoods last week, because they always have some great looking linens in there and I spotted this set with a King coverlet/quilt along with 2 shams, all for $39. Now, that’s a deal!
And I really like it too. But, I want to make sure it’s not too sweet with the flowery vines on the coverlet.
I’m not a huge floral fan, but a few flowers I can handle. And it really does sort of mimic the floral vines on the lamps…see.
I want to make sure it doesn’t scream “Country”, since Country is not me at all. I think it’s really pretty and the color of the blues couldn’t be more perfect with all my fabrics. I love the texture of the all cotton fabric too. The coverlet is edged in this dark blue with the striped little flounce, which I really like too. My friend, Debbie gave it her stamp of approval when she saw it and assured me that it didn’t look Country.
What do you think??
See how perfect the striped ruffle goes with my Calico Corners paisley fabric on the shams? Couldn’t be a better match. I love the texture of the white shams too.
I just want to know that it’s still pretty and elegant, but not going Country.
You are free to offer your opinions. At only $39 for the whole shebang, I do like that. I just don’t want it to look like $39, know what I mean. 🙂 And I really don’t think it does. I’m loving it more every day I see it on the bed. (special note: the blue paint in the bathroom is not nearly that BRIGHT, there’s a skylight that always electrifies the color with light).
Because someone will ask: Gold paint color in the bedroom is Sherwin Williams Blonde.
UPDATE: READ the Comments to see what I’ve decided on this!! Thanks ALL for chiming in and Merry Christmas! I’m cooking and chilling today.
(Homegoods is not paying me to say any of this, I just happen to love their store and want to help them stay in business!).
