Well, the master bedroom overhaul started today with the new duvet cover! My three 20% off coupons from Bed, Bath, and Beyond were able to save me $48. It was still more money than I ever thought I'd spend on bedding, but the quality seems really high on this set. The duvet is thicker and softer than our old duvet cover. While I thought the duvet was gray and white, it is actually a light brownish-gray and cream. At first, I was pretty disappointed because I really wanted gray. However, the more I looked at the pattern in person, the more I loved it.
I only bought the duvet and the queen shams since I had three coupons. I'll go back later for the other pillows and the blue quilt once I have more coupons.
So here's what I had before:
|Pretty plain. Also, lots of white for Zeke to get dirty (which|
he certainly did on may occasions).
|I love the pattern!|
I really like it. For some reason, every single picture I take in my master bedroom has a dingy tone to it. I think it may be the wall color (which will be changed in the near future) or the lighting. When I'm in the room, the room does not look that dingy. I think that when I get around to painting the headboard white like the nightstand, which will probably happen over my Christmas break, that'll help, too.
I am still slightly disappointing that the bedding is not a true gray, but I've been looking at new bedding for the past few weeks, and this is the only duvet that I really fell in love with, mostly due to the pattern. I'll just have to change up my mood board a bit to work with this color scheme, I suppose! Any wall color suggestions are welcome!
