The good news is that we’ve decided on new bedding, ordered it, and like it. We went with Pottery Barn’s Sydney Palampore duvet and shams:
The blue matches the carpet that I’m grudgingly coming to terms with, quite well — and the cream bedsheets that we already own match well too. Thumbs up. All we need is a new bed skirt, since the green one matches our old bedding, and doesn’t quite match these.
Even though I acknowledge that our blinds and valences aren’t the most hip window treatments ever, we already own them, which elevates them considerably in my estimation. We have both blue
and mushroom colored versions of the same valence, holdovers from our last house (as well as green, hanging in the master bedroom now). Depending on wall color, either could work with the new bedding.
…all of which leads us to what is [not] my husband’s favorite part of this whole proposition:
PAINT CHIPS! Whee!!
