I decided it was time to update the bedding in our guest room.
Here is what our guest room currently looks like. I made the bed skirt, head-board, curtains, and pillow shams in December of 2008 so those all need to stay. But the comforter is 10 years old. I think it's starting to look a little dated and worn. Plus, it weighs a TON! (something I just discovered today as I was taking the photos. My poor guests have probably been suffocating under it all these months...) FYI: The painting in this photo is called ROUND BARN.
OPTION #1: White Down Comforter
This comforter is actually quite light. So if it's too cold in the winter, the guests could fold down the floral quilt for extra warmth.
OPTION #2: Soft Yellow Quilt
I purchased the yellow quilt at the same time as the floral quilt, but wasn't sure if having too quilts was just too busy with all the stitching.
OPTION #3: Green Quilt
I found the Green Quilt this week at Marshall's. I was actually looking for a comforter, but then I spotted this quilt. I hoped that the fact that it had a different pattern of stitching would make it work better with the floral quilt.
The Green Quilt is reversible. This side has a white/green pattern.
Green Quilt Reverse. The painting in this photo is called GERANIUMS.
A few weeks ago I spent a couple of hours in the bedding aisle of TJ Maxx, looking to update the look of our guest room.
I found a vibrantly colored floral quilt with matching shams and some thrown pillows that I LOVE! But I’m not sure what to do about the “comforter” part of my new ensemble.
So that’s why I’m posting all these combinations – looking for some advice.
Please keep in mind that I don’t ever want to spread the floral quilt on the bed (I tried that idea for a day and it looked too busy in that small room.) It will basically just stay at the end of the bed and get used if somebody needs an extra layer of warmth.
My question for you is this: Which of these options works best for replacing the old comforter?
