Mixing and matching bedding
I have a full sized bed that I've been looking to upgrade with nicer sheets but my budget is kinda limited so I've been looking at Tuesday Mornings, Home Goods, etc.. for bedding.
To save money, I was thinking of mixing and matching bedding where I got an expensive piece and mix it with a less expensive piece or mixing and matching what I could find at a discount retailer with regularly priced pieces.
But, I'm not sure what bedding pieces- fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillow cases, duvet cover, throw, etc..- should match and what doesn't need to match.
I found a Sferra Amante 1993 fitted flat sheet that had a jacquard pattern, but couldn't find any other pieces in that same pattern. Would it look strange if I just had the flat sheet in one pattern and everything else in a different pattern?
Maybe, if I went for a white bed look, would it matter if the pieces are all slightly different- sateen vs percale, different companies, different pattern on whites, etc.. as long as they're all white?
Or, I was thinking about getting a queen sized bedding for my full bed because there's not a lot of full bedding for sale while Queen bedding seems to be the most popular. If I got queen sized bedding, it'd open things up and give me more choices.
Would getting a queen sized bedding for a full sized bed be too big? Are there any tricks or tips you use to keep a bigger bedding on a smaller bed?
