Sleeping With the Flowers

floral bed 1Here she is in all her glory!  This may be shocking, and to tell you the truth it shocks me every time i walk into our bedroom, but it’s a good shock for sure.  I had a few different requirements to address when I started the makeover, including:

Complement existing Ralph Lauren sheets

Incorporate white to tie in the bedskirt and headboard slipcover

King-size so Ethan doesn’t steal all the covers from me

No to all duvets, because they are fussy and lumpy

As you can see I went the route of Simply Shabby Chic again and chose to pull the pink from the sheets’ bouquet as inspiration.  I’m not usually one to mix and layer different patterns and prints, but hello!  All florals were easy.  And initially I thought I wouldn’t have any of the larger floral showing from the reverse side of the comforter, but it’s growing on me.  Probably because it anchors the two smaller florals, while including a faint blue that also hints back at the RL sheets.

See what I mean about that rockin’ double ruffle?  It really transforms the room.  I finally took out the Eames chairs in preparation for my new nightstands (remember?).  Soon I’ll be addressing some makeshift lighting solutions and figuring out what else to do with the space.  More pillows?  A fuzzy rug for our tootsies?  Who knows.  But I’m loving all the ways I can go with this now.
