It was time for some changes in the master bedroom.
I’ve been looking for a new bedspread since before the holidays but they are so hard to find since we have an extra deep, pillow top mattress. A normal sized king duvet or quilt just will not fit well. I knew I needed a bedspread but would use it as a coverlet. It also could not be too heavy since we live in South Texas and it just does not get cold here very often. When we do experience the occasional “frigid” night, we just pull the blanket up on the end of the bed. Otherwise, in the summertime, it’s usually just sheets and a ceiling fan!!
After months of searching Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Soft Surroundings and other various suppliers, I realized I couldn’t and didn’t want to spend that kind of money! Don’t get me wrong…..if I could spend that without my hubby giving me “that look”, I would but, honestly, I also love the hunt of a bargain (or at least a good product on clearance)! So, after scouring Ebay and Amazon, I finally found it!!
It’s a French Tile Bedspread from Lifestyle. It has a wonderful quilt look and the feel and texture are top-notch!
The first thing I did to update the room was remove the rug from under the bed and I am thrilled!! I know,……I know, everyone likes a rug under the bed but I don’t miss it at all! Again, living in South Texas where it’s generally warm more often than not, it actually feels good to have a cool floor under your feet. I picked up a couple of white shag rugs for each side of the bed so when we first get up in the morning, our “tootsies” touch something soft!
This spread is also plenty big at 118×120! It still doesn’t reach to the floor but with my bed skirt, it’s just fine!
Next, came the pillow shams. I wanted Pottery Barn pick stitch and have been keeping my eye open for them on sale. Sure enough, PB had a warehouse sale and free shipping so two king size white shams made their way to my house!
I love soft blue in a bedroom and wanted to incorporate that color. So, once again I was on the prowl for standard size light blue PB pick stitch shams. I struck gold with Ebay ……$20 for two! It was all coming together!
Lastly, I found some brown and white checked euro shams for $5 a piece on Ebay. I knew they would work and bought them even before I bought the bedspread!
To finish off the look, I wanted a throw or coverlet to fold at the end of the bed (love that look)! I found this on Ebay again which was perfect!
One side has a floral pattern and the other inspirational words (in brown lettering). I love that I can reverse the coverlet, should I desire, and it came with two king shams so I can change things up a bit when I get tired of this look!
Once my settee was painted, it fit in well with the whole color scheme!
It’s a nice update but it’s still not quite done…..
……I mean, are our rooms every really done?!
I’d love to know what you think !
Have a wonderful day…….
