verbicide: (I love my damn cat)

In other news, my mom and I went shopping. For some reason, I find bedding utterly challenging. I'm very picky, and don't like anything. Or rather, I like much, but not for my room and bed. So, we scoured the countryside this weekend, and I've bought the Italian hotel bedding from Restoration Hardware. I have to spread it out and see if I like it in the room, but it's certainly very pretty.



I still need to buy some nice, crisp white sheets. I wanted the ones at Restoration Hardware, but couldn't barf up the $350 it would have cost. They are so impossibly soft. I need to buy some less expensive sheets immediately, though, because my dark red bedding isn't going to work with this new cover/shams. Also in the near future, I want new, nicer pillows. I have two nice down pillows, but two completely deflated and yellowed sad-looking things that were probably once pillows.

I did finally get the light down blanket I've coveted for ages. Mostly because my mom insisted on buying it for her cheap daughter.

I really hope to get the last two pictures framed and hung tomorrow, and then I will take a metric buttload of pictures. I also hope that the new bedding will light a fire under my ass about finishing the trim in the bedroom. Especially around the window, which will also require me to replace the crappy metal blinds.

Ohh, pretty!!

I am dying to get new bedding, but we have to paint the bedroom first so we can figure out what goes!

Bed, Bath & Beyond has some really great sheets. We got some there awhile back for under $100 and they are the softest. They carry them up to 1000 thread count, I think, but I actually thought the 500 count sateen felt the softest.

I was just there, too. But I hadn't figured out the comforter cover colors, yet. I ended up at Fred Meyer and they had some 420-count sheets that were on sale, so I'm content for now. But I'm going to need another set and will head back to BB&B! Thanks!

I love the bed! And I see from the later post that you managed a *very* impressive haul on sheets, so it sounds like you've got a lovely *and* really comfortable bedding thing going. Yay!

Just to clarify--that isn't my bed, just my bedding *grin* The picture is from the Restoration Hardware catalogue.

Pictures of my own furniture: coming soon to a web site near you!

I can hardly wait! I did figure it wasn't your bed, if it wasn't made up yet - but doesn't everyone's bed look just like the picture out of a catalogue? :) I do love the color scheme, though.

Oh, duh. Of course you caught that! :)

I'm glad you like it!
