Darling Husband and I just purchased a new king sized bed and it’s time to slap some new bedding on that baby! You’d laugh if I told you we were cramming ourselves, PLUS our 16 month old daughter, in a full sized bed, wouldn’t you?
Now that everyone is resting peacefully, with plenty of room to spread out, we’re only missing one thing…bedding. I purchased a new chocolate brown sheet set for us to use in the meantime, but we really need a new comforter set. Heck, I’m open to a new duvet set, if that’s what it comes to.
Problem is…I’m incredibly, incredibly picky according to my husband, although I beg to differ. In my mind, I know what I’m looking for, I just can’t find it. Sure, some stores have come close to fulfilling my vision but the ratings and/or price have turned me off. My SIL found a killer deal at Penney’s but when I pulled it up online, the reviews were pretty bad as far as quality goes. Here’s the link in case you’re interested in seeing the style: http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6E.aspx?DeptID=59474&CatID=59514&GrpTyp=ENS&ItemID=165a609&attrtype=&attrvalue=&CMID=59474%7c59483&Fltr=&Srt=&QL=F&IND=49&cmVirtualCat=&CmCatId=59474
I’m looking for a set that has rich tones, like chocolate brown and shades of blue, or maybe even burnt orange/red. My room has three caramel walls and one big, chocolate brown accent wall (that the bed is against) and medium brown hardwood floors. We have a double tray ceiling with a gigantic ceiling fan (decor only because the thing is useless as far as cooling the room goes) that looks like this, only lighter brown: http://www.tomandjulie.us/images/House_Progress_290a.jpg
Here is a list of the stores I’ve already hit up:
Kohls, JCPenney, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Sears, TJMaxx, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Walmart, Overstock.com, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Domestications, some of Amazon, and The Company Store
I’ll link you to some bed sets I’ve bookmarked, only one of which I absolutely *LOVE*, but alas, it’s no longer being sold:
Here is the set I adore – http://www.uncrate.com/men/images/nate-berkus-bedding.jpg
DH’s favorite so far (would our ceiling fan totally clash with a modern set like this?)- http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/bedandbath/comfortersbedspreads/collections/PRD~c18240/Apt+9+Metro+Bedding+Coordinates.jsp’ defer=’defer#
One of our other top contendors (again, what about the ceiling fan?) – http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/bedandbath/comfortersbedspreads/collections/PRD~c18248/Apt+9+Connect+Bedding+Coordinates.jsp’ defer=’defer#
I really like the look of this set but I’m afraid it might be too much turquoise, it’s also quite similar to the look of our previous set but would go really well with our ceiling fan – http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_096B8061000P?keyword=ty+pennington+bedding
Here is the set I fell in love with months ago, but now is unavailable in the size I need – http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=119494&RN=22
And the same set in another color – http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=119459&RN=22
I don’t mind shelling out a few hundred dollars (I’d like to MAX at $300-$350 for everything) for a nice set…I just can’t find one that I’m in love with yet and I’ve seriously been looking for a while now.
TL;DR – So, I turn to you lovelies! What’s your favorite bedding store?
If you know of any other stores I can look at, please share. I’d greatly appreciate it! Heck, I’ve even scoured the “decorate by color” websites where they show bedding by specific color and still, nothing. I’m not THAT picky…I just like clean lines, maybe a little modern touch to it, and Darling Husband requested we keep the flowers to a minimum.
Thanks for any and all suggestions. I appreciate it!
