It is time for a bedroom makeover in our house and I need some help.
My first big problem is that I’m recovering from color-shyness. From bedding to clothing, I’ve always ogled bright splashes of color but I inevitably cop out and buy the “safe” neutral option. A few months ago, in the clothing section at Target, something snapped (I blame Pinterest) and I bought a little bright blue dress with tiny red and yellow flowers all over it. Suddenly, the flood gates opened. Next was a bright paisley scarf, then electric magenta tights, then a navy and white chevron dress. I can’t stop. It’s wonderful.
So when our precious Spaghetti puppy chewed an 8 inch hole in our tame solid colored bedspread, I have to confess I got a little giddy.
I know this introduction of color in to my home SEEMS all well and good, but the problem is that the pendulum has swung so far to the other extreme that now I’m all Sticky McGrabbyhands around bright floral patterns, fun geometric shapes and bold color palettes and I’m seriously thinking about slathering my walls with stripey wall paper that MIGHT require my doctor to increase my anti-anxiety medication dosage and – that’s why I might need a little perspective.
Earlier I said “My first big problem is..” and then I talked about the colors and patterns and palettes oh my. Big problem numero dos is that I have no dinero. SO, since I’m not fond of purchasing used bedding, I’mma have to save up for most of these things. THAT, however, is not your problem.
So, since I basically want all of these options and my wallet won’t support that, I need help narrowing them down. Which of these are your favorites? least favorites? absolutely nots?
All I’m looking at here are the pillow cases – which cost $100 for the set, so I will likely never get these, but I really really really like them.
Credit-wise, it just so happens that all of these options come from Urban Outfitters except for:
#7: Thomas Paul’s Moby Shams (That sounds like a band name!)
I’m hoping to do another post on wall art later, but… I think I’ll wait to see your thoughts on bedding first.
