A few months ago, I shared a new gray rug for the bedroom that I considered returning. As many of you wisely suggested, it was a bit much for the room when paired with the bright blue curtains and metallic wallpaper.
One day I may sell it or move it to another space, but thanks to some simple bedding updates the rug doesn’t look quite as overbearing anymore.
Removing the faded striped sheets and discolored gold trimmed throw pillows means that the rug and wallpaper are the only patterns now — which makes the room feel much calmer overall.
To maintain interest with the solid bedding, I added texture via the throw pillows.
Enter: Emily and Meritt gold sequin pillows (tip: The covers are pretty reasonably priced and you can get inexpensive pillow inserts for these pillow covers at Jo-Ann).
Don’t they look eerily similar to my beloved gold shoes?
As for the duvet cover, I simply swapped the duvet in the guest room with the master duvet to add more texture at the foot of the bed. Then there are the sheets. I would qualify these bamboo viscose sheets from Nine Space as my first ‘fancy sheet set’ that I’ve ever owned.
And I’m hooked.
They are so soft that they make getting into bed a pleasure… and getting out of it just a little more difficult.
So what do you think? Is the room looking more balanced now that the bedding is simplified?
