Anyone who knows me well, knows I LOVE bedding. I think it's because the look of the room can be easily changed by switching out something as simple as the pillow shams. There were years I got new bedding every six months (I was also making more money!). However, the past few years I've used the same quilt and shams. Because I really liked them... and I had trouble finding something I liked as much, if not better.
A few months ago I ordered 2 euro shams from the Kerry Cassill website to see if I'd like them as much in person as I did online. I of course did, and that's when I called the store and asked them to help me coordinate a quilt and standard shams. I never thought of myself as a 'purple' kind of girl. But the girls at Lala shipped me a grayish-lavender quilt which looks fantastic with the brown walls. The quilt is sooo soft and cozy. And I kept the 3 pair of standard shams so I can swap at my discretion.
I found this pair of alabaster lamps at a local consignment store, Room Service. I had them rewired and new lampshades made. They are my absolute favorite find to date.
