However, the more I tried to figure out exactly what fabric I wanted to do, the more I just realized that maybe it was time in my eight-year marriage to finally buy a bed – we’ve only had hand-me-downs and DIY’ed ones. So one day, a sale on Joss and Main inspired me to buy a charcoal grey, tufted headboard. Here’s a sneak peak – I’ll dig up the link to the bed online and share it with you once I find it.
You’ll get to see the rest once I have my bedding all done. Now that I had a pretty headboard to show off, of course that meant new shams and throw pillows! I found the perfect coral bordered shams from Biscuit bedding. Bailey, the shop owner, has a blog that I visit often. While I probably would never do floor to ceiling floral wallpaper like she does in her designs, I find her writing witty and fun. And her outlook on design just makes me smile – such a happy person. She aptly named her shop Biscuit because she wants her bedding to feel delicious. Even though the shams were a bit more expensive than I normally would have gone, I knew they were exactly what I was looking for, so I bit the bullet. I’m going to have them monogramed in the same coral color to finish them off. Her packaging is even adorable.
For accent throws, I found some remnant fabric on sale as Calico Corners for $15 a yard. It’s a pale mint Greek key pattern, and I think it will make the perfect compliment to the Biscuit bedding. I just have it laying over some lumbar pillows right now so you can have a vision of what it will look like. I’m hoping to get everything over to a family member this weekend who will make the throw pillows and do the monogramming. So excited!
