Flip or Flop Is Making a HUGE Change This Summer

Ask Casa: Find My Dream Bedding!

Dear Casa,
I am an apartment dweller in desperate need of new bedding. My bedroom has an accent wall painted a rich blue, with the remaining walls entirely white. The furniture includes a white, shabby-chic bed with foot board, and silver and mirrored night stands and a chest of drawers. The majority of the accents in the room (wall decor, rug, etc.) are also blue. The curtains have a blue and bright green pattern on a white background. I am looking to add more colors to the room perhaps
like red and yellow, but not pink or purple! But, I want to maintain the overall blue emphasis, and would like to do so with new bedding. I'm thinking of something contemporary, classy, simple, strong, a bit feminine, and patterned which fills the center portion of the bed, not just the edges. To make matters more complicated, I am totally opposed to duvet covers, having had difficulty in the past with them. Any suggestions on a moderately priced solution? Please, lead the way to the comforter of my dreams!
Thanks,
Natalie

Hi Natalie,
You certainly are a girl who knows what she wants! That's good. Your room sounds beautiful; I'd love to see a photo of it. The duvet clause makes this hunt a little more difficult, but seeing as blue is so versatile, you still have a lot to work with. I hunted down several comforters or quilts that I think might meet your wishes. I particularly love this Blissliving Peri Comforter ($325). Its citron stripes will really pop with blue, and its peek-a-boo pleats are as you wish, "contemporary, classy, simple, strong, and a bit feminine."

If these don't make the cut, it'll be easy to find a duvet cover that you love that coordinates. Just have a seamstress fill it and quilt it, or stitch it to a comforter, so you don't have issues.

Hope that helps!
Cheers,
Casa

I know, mamasitamalita! I was going to suggest the same, but she doesn't like duvet covers.
