Until very recently, our bed was a tragic throwback to a college dorm room mishmash gone wrong. None of the colors matched or even remotely coordinated. They clashed with the walls. Instead of sighing in relaxation whenever I walked into our bedroom, I winced.
I tried explaining to my husband that I would like our bedroom to have a different “feel”. He said, “What do you mean? The sheets feel soft enough to me.” I explained that no, I meant the colors were a bit dark. He suggested I try turning on the light. I gave up.
I gave up until I found myself browsing on Wayfair.com. My clicky finger made its way over to the Pillows and Throws page on and I had a flash of inspiration. What if I actually found a way to make that peaceful respite I dreamed about happen without spending a ton? My wheels got to turning…a fresh cover, a few throw pillows…this could happen!
I knew the look I wanted–something calm, soothing, light. Using Wayfair’s user-friendly search options, I was able to quickly pare down my search by color, material, price and care (strictly machine-wash for me–maybe in another life I’ll have more time for hand washing??). Despite narrowing my options, the selection was still full of so many tempting items!
I really liked the texture of this cable-knit throw. It would feel like I was throwing a cozy sweater on my bed!
The muted stripes in this woven cotton throw were so soft and gorgeous:
The print of this pillow was so eye-catching:
I can’t get over how light and airy the gentle soft print of these pillows is!
After having too much fun browsing around all that Wayfair has to offer on their Pillows and Throws page, I finally settled in on my selections. Take a look below and let me know what you think!
Despite all the beautiful prints I found, I figured nothing would give me the freshness of a white throw. I found this one that came with two pillow shams in a quilt set:
I had found a delicate vine print flannel sheet set on sale a bit ago, but wasn’t sure I would be able to make it work with the new look I was shooting for, until I found these accent pillows (in oblong and square shape):
Faux leather isn’t typically my style, but I thought it would be the perfect way to add a more masculine touch to the softer print cover and white throw. I also love the definition the play of textures adds to our bed. Not to mention, these pillows are aces at holding up to all the lovin’ my kids give them!
I am tickled with the results and get a little giddy when I climb in bed each night. I feel like my place of respite and calm has finally been created. Not that I am elated to boot that scattered college dorm room vibe or anything…
