My fiance’s grandmother offered to buy us new bedding, sheets and curtains for our wedding present and she wants me to pick it out. I’ve narrowed it down to these two and I can’t decide which one
For this one: I like it because it looks girly without being too girly so Fiance can handle it but I’m iffy on quilts b/c I’ve never been a fan in the past BUT that was when I was single and wanting to be extra warm and with Fiance, I need the AC on in the winter.
For this one: I like it because it’s darker and I tend to eat in the bed when studying so it won’t show stains as much. I also feel like it has a more manly feel to it than the other one. It’s also more of a comforter than the first one
Anyone have any opinions?

Tough choice! I’m leaning towards the first one, since it looks classier. However, if you have pets, I’d be cautious because fingernails can snag the threads.

@melisslp: No pets. We do plan to get a dog. Fiance keeps saying eventually so I think he means when we move in 1.5yrs so by then, we’d probably want a different comforter anyway right?

@paigers91: Or, you could just keep the dog off of the bed. Although, I know that’s hard to do. I love how warm and cuddly doggies are!

Is there a reason why you’re going for black? When I see black bedding I think bachelor pad immediately.
Do you just want it dark because you like to eat in bed?

@KateByDesign: Ideally, I’d like green and brown but Fiance thinks every comforter I showed him with that color scheme is mortifying. I figure since this is our first one and I’m the first woman he’s lived with (that he’s shared a bed with) I’ll ease him into me doing all the decorating decisions. lol I don’t mine black and white though, especially because alot of them ended up being really pretty 🙂
Part of the darkness is because of the eating factor. I have a light green/white comforter now that’s been destroyed over the last year because of all the eating/drinking in the bed. I keep telling myself I’m going to stop eating/drinking in bed but it’s such a bad habit and its so hard to break.

I like the first one. I think the colors make it ‘man enough’ and the design is softer than the second one making it more relaxing

I love the second one, they are very similar however i think the second one oozes a little more youth
