Winterizing my bed
I know some of you must be sick of me and my bed by now-- but please know you've given me great peace-- this bed has been an issue for me since I bought it. Just a few more questions as I prepare to layer the bed for winter (it got COLD this weekend!).
I will be painting the bed dark gray/green after I move.. and I have the RL plaid blanket in the idea board below. I LOVE the RL blanket but it is much lighter weight than I expected. That wouldnt have been a big issue except that it does NOT go with the silk quilt that I'd planned (also on the idea board) at all.
So now I am trying to add layers without taking away from the simple, handsome look of the inspiration picture. So do I...
1. Use my duvet with either a white flannel or ivory velvet cover and white cotton sheets?
2. Add 1-2 white/ivory blankets or quilts and white flannel sheets?
I plan to buy white sheets this weekend-- the question is, do I get flannel or cotton? I could get by for now with my cream colored sheets but everything is on sale now and I really think it needs white.
If I go flannel, any recommendations? I had Eddie Bauer years ago and loved them-- but I am also looking at the Martha Stewart Luxury Flannel (upgrade from the basic-- which i didn't care for) at Macy's. They've gotten rave reviews.
Here's my idea board. The EF Silk Quilt in upper right is out. I still like the Bosporus Flax Toile but based on feedback here, it's on the tentative hold list..
