Bedding, Trips and Tips

As you know I'm attempting to decorate my home. So far I've found a few things that I think will help, albeit they are small things.

Yesterday I found this:



Sean and I are in need of new bedding and we both love black and white. I think some accent colors like red or turquoise (not together,don't worry) would punch it up a bit. Your thoughts?

Yesterday started three weeks of absolutley no contact with Sean. Since we first started talking we've never gone this long without texting, etc. So...this should be an interesting three weeks.

I ordered $60 worth of old sorority photos last night that I didn't have the money to buy when I was actually in college. Yeah...it was more than I thought it would be, but I'm excited to be able to put these pics in my scrapbook and honestly if I didn't buy them those events would have been left out as I myself had no pictures of the events. Those were the days before I got my first digital camera.

Did I mention that my parents, brother and I are going to be taking a Greek cruise next summer? I'm so excited! In all honesty it seems like a lot of cruises in Europe aren't that expensive. I'm thinking of taking a couple more while I'm here. I'm still looking for a reasonably priced tour to Russia. If anybody knows of any let me know.

I like the idea of pairing turquoise with the bedding. Maybe some pillows and colorful bedside lamps. You could spray paint some lamps you already have to save money. If you need any decorating help, I'm all ears!

LOVE the bedding! And a pop of color would look great! :)

I LOVE black and white things! Especially with some bright colored accents. I approve!

Oh a cruise! Lucky girl! What a perfect distraction for you.
As for the decorating, I really love the idea of turquoise. I'm a big red fan too, but I think it would be too much in a bedroom where you want calming feelings. Since you love photography, why not take some of the sea pictures from your travels of Italy and the surrounding areas, and enhance the waters colors to match the turquoise theme? Then you could print and hang them in a collection of black and/or white frames. Just an idea. Good luck!

I like this! Red or green accents would look great!

turquoise looks fantastic with black and white - my entire basement is done that way and it's amazing. I wouldn't put any color right on the bed since the pattern is pretty busy and you don't wanna clutter it (i write for a home improvement mag - bear with me lol), but vase, artwork, lampshades, and even throw rugs are great ways to add that "pop" without being overwhelming or looking cheesy .. good luck! :)

My friends that have gone to Russia have either done so on a cruise, or through ITT tours on base.

The Med. cruises are GREAT!

I like black and white but I personally couldn't do that pattern because it hurts my eyes. It's cute though, but just not for me. The blue would look good with it though!

yay for Greece! You will love it :)

oooh a greek cruise! sounds like fun.

the bedding is very trendy and the color would definately pop... in a good way.

Overstock.com? I got the same bedding for our guest room only in yellow and gray.

Word of caution, I was disappointed in the roughness of the fabric and relieved it was only going in our guest room - not OUR bedroom. So if soft sheets and comforters are a big deal to you, I might reconsider.

They are awfully cute though!

Love the bedding! I want to go on a European Cruise so bad, we'll see if that happens though :)

Stephanie said...

I love that print! Where did you find it? My whole house is black & white, and that is just so cute!

I like the bedding but I think it would give me a headache if I stared at it too long...

kd said...

Can I go to Russia with you?! We can drink vodka and eat potatoes and borscht and stuff!

I like to see a bedding different on my bed, because i think a new day should be seen enthusiastically and with a different image. We must to renew anything around us and our own energy too. And never neglect or sexual life too. that is really important to the couples around the world.
