New Furniture!!

Casey and I bought a new bedroom set over the weekend! We are so excited. We've been shopping for almost three years - but we have very high end taste and everything we've liked has been well outside of our budget (as in $5k only buys the bed - and then you still need nightstands, dressers, chest etc.). We are taking advantage of all of the great discounts you can find and the suffering of the furniture stores and bought our dream set. We got the king sleigh bed, nightstand, dresser, mirror, and a chest of drawers. We still need to find a chair or bench to put in the room - and we need bedding!

Our walls are currently Colorado Springs from Behr and I would love to try and find bedding that goes with it so that I don't have to repaint the room.  
I originally thought I wanted Restoration Hardware's Italian Chocolate Edge Sateen in Marine, but I'm not sure how it will look on the sleigh bed.  Will it hang right?  Will it look awkard with the square of color poking out from the footboard?  
I still love this bedding, but I don't think it will work.  Sad huh?  Do you have any suggestions of other things I should look at?  What do you have on your bed?


  1. Beautiful!! And I love love LOVE that bedspread set!

  2. The set and the bedding is beautiful! Find out if you can take the bedding back if you don't like it, try it out...see if it works! I think it would.

  3. Yay for new furniture. Ha, you'll totally laugh, our bedding is from Target and we LOVE it. Our walls are a matte sage green and we got some kind of rustic floral bedding that has blues, red and greens in it which matches perfectly. Yes, yes, it's Target bedding, but, it was on sale and it fits our room--and is totally cozy, so, no complaints from me!

    We've had out bedroom set since we got married, and it's kind of gotten banged up with all our moves and whatnot, but, I refuse to purchase a new set because they are so pricey!!

    Glad you found one you liked!

  4. What about a simple Matelasse with a monogram - think Pottery Barn. I think they have some powdery blue ones!!
