I've posted a bunch about the (slow) progress we have made in our bedroom:
painting a pair of garage sale nightstands, changing out the white roll up shades for dark brown bamboo ones, reupholstering my parents' chair, and beginning to plank the large wall behind our bed.
It seems like we've done a lot but there is a lot more left to do:
find a rug, paint the un-planked walls, add some drapes to soften up the windows, maybe build a larger armoire or dresser, and decide on some new bedding...
...which brings me to my duvet dilemma.
Dramatic, I know.
I've been so indecisive that I've ordered not one, not two, not three, but four different duvet options.
It all began when I saw this blog post and immediately loved the look of the room.
So, when I saw this Pottery Barn bedding (currently on sale), it reminded me of Mary Ann's room.
I bought it but then had immediate buyer's remorse fearing that it might be too feminine for my other half's liking.
Which led me to purchase this bedding (also on sale).
I was drawn to the simplicity of it and envisioned jazzing it up with some patterned pillows.
But THEN, I stumbled upon this navy ticking stripe bedding, which reminded of the classic look I originally thought I was going for in the room.
Well, all three Pottery Barn options have arrived and I still don't have a final decision.
I have decided however that the plain one is too stark white. I know one dog nap on it, and I'll have to throw it in the wash.
The ticking stripe, which I was sure to be the one I would love, just didn't do it for me once on the bed. Just to confirm my feelings, I sent a picture to my mom and she agreed.
Surprisingly, the paisley was my favorite. Mixed with some navy pillows and a throw blanket, it didn't look as "girly" as I thought.
Of course I had to go on Pinterest and come across this Ballard Designs striped bedding.
Back to being confused.
So I've ordered this one too, making it duvet #4.
Hopefully I will have a decision once this one arrives.
Thank God for returns!
Which one do you like the best?
