Last week the Pottery Barn Bed and Bath catalog arrived in my mailbox. I don't know about you, but I actually get a little excited when a new PB catalog arrives. I really enjoy flipping through the pages. The front cover of the latest issue of the Bed and Bath catalog had new bedding featured.
When I saw the new "Charlie Paisley Duvet" I thought...hmmm...this would look really beautiful in my master bedroom. I wanted to see it in person, because sometimes the colors appear much different from the photograph. So I went to my local PB, which generally carries a small selection of bedding (we have a larger PB further away that carries everything, but I thought I would start with the shorter drive). As luck would have it they had this duvet in stock. It was even more perfect in person.
The blue in the duvet in person was more like the robin's egg blue in my bedroom, not as blue-grey as many of the PB duvets (or as blue/grey as it looked in the photo).
I was thrilled when I put it on the bed. I think it adds so much to my master bedroom.
Here is my bedroom before. We had a cream textured duvet and then the beige throw on the end of the bed. I have been wanted to bring a bit more of the robin's egg blue into the bedroom for a while and have been keeping my eye open for something. This new PB duvet works so well.
Now that I know the duvet is staying, I have to finish off the look.
Unfortunately, PB only sells standard and euro shams in this pattern. I have two king size shams. But I have a plan. I noticed while at PB they sell a shower curtain in the same fabric. I have to feel it, but my guess is that it is made from the same material. If so, I will be sewing my own shams.
I will be sure to share how I do it if I go this route.
I need to bring a little more color to the head of the bed and I'm thinking the shams being placed closest to the headboard will achieve this. Also, the cream textured duvet that we had on the bed is now being used as a coverlet. It's a very heavy weight fabric and actually looks and feels like a coverlet.
I can't wait to hear what you think of my new duvet!
I hope to have more to share later in the week.
