Shopping For Bedding — White Sale

If your read my last post, then you already know the New Year is THE time to wipe the slate clean. January is all about getting organized and giving your home a refresh. It’s also the time to keep your eyes peeled for the ever popular White Sale. I for one have been on the lookout for some deals on new bedding for the guest room.

Mixing and matching patterns, combining linen with cotton. As you can see, it’s pretty much been an epic fail. I’m ready to give up. It’s just not cohesive. One thing I’ve determined problematic is the bright white looks too stark against that earthy leather gym mat headboard. It needs to be warmed up. Maybe a blush or gold or ivory?

A space that my guests would see.
