    Personally, I prefer the first one. Feels fresher and a bit more stylish.

    NowMrsS :  

    I am a sucker for that Moroccan design of the navy/white. I even have that design on a nitelite.

    However, for staging, you really want to avoid anything taste-specific. The goal is to prompt buyers to visualize their stuff in the space. It’s helpful to define the space and let your buyers fill in the blanks.

    Thus, I would definitely go with the solid. It has a nice luxury feel to it without being overpowering.

    Hi had something similar. The white will become yellow-tinged after a while. I just switched to a solid grey.

    I’ll be completely honest – neither. The print on either won’t photograph well – the contrast of the blue/white on the 1st one is distracting for the rest of the room, and the sheen on the 2nd highlights any lines that aren’t completely straight. Are you able to find a nice solid bedspread, navy, no print and jazz it up with some throw pillows? That way it will photograph well, you won’t have to fuss with it to make the pattern straight.

    I would go with the top one.  It makes a statement, which is something you want for staging a house.  The bottom one looks cheap to me.

    I picked the first one, but I dont love either. That much blue is still pretty bold. Can you go for a gray comforter with maybe some pillows in navy for a pop of color?

    Neither.  Go lighter, less in ya face.  Grey, cream, pale grey-blue, beige, etc.  I think a print or texture is fine if it’s subtle & not shiny. Add a tasteful decorative pillow or two. 

    But if I have to pick one, I pick the second. I really dislike the blue & white print a lot.

    NowMrsS :  the first one is too specific and extreme of personal taste for staging. Navy or dark gray since you’re concerned about stains, no patterns, is your best bet although I truly don’t like either choice here.

    I’m sorry, I dislike both. That tile pattern is a super dated trend and the solid one isn’t great either.

    Are you in the US? Target has great inexpensive options: their Project 62, Nate Berkus, and Threshold brands are my favorite. What color are your walls?

    I’m a huge fan of white/ivory bedding, that’s what I would do if it’s not too much trouble to put on just for showings.  If once it’s on you think it looks lacking with the wall colors then add a decorative pillow or two.  Echoing poster above that suggested Target for stylish bedding on a budget.  You might try kohl’s too.
