Here it is with a super colorful quilt that I layer on top for the winter.
Yes, I know that's a lot of patterns. I could be accused of being an over-patterner, but I love it. And I think it looks extra cozy.
Here's what the room looks like from the other side. I had to move the dresser from underneath the arched window to make room for the sofa that used to be in the front room. It kind of works. The mirror stayed there because there's no place for that either. My house is small, and full!
Here's the chevron sofa in the place that the dresser used to be.
Yes, lots of chevrons, and florals, and of course a few birds here and there.
So what to do about the duvet situation? I know West Elm has lots of cool ones, but they just don't have that impact or wow factor that I'm looking for. I love Anthropologie, but their quilts are a little too florally or girly or bohemian. Pottery Barn is way too conservative for the look I want; that's why I was so surprised when I found the bedding above in there.
See that pillow above. That's almost the look I'm going for. Yes, birds have been done to death (and so have chevrons!) but we'll see. The pillow is Chinoiserie by Dwell Studio.
Here's some pictures of the duvet sets.
Here's another option from Dwell Studio. It's the peacock duvet.
However, I decided to purchase the two above and give them a try. Not sure yet if I'll keep one, both or even none, but I'll post an update when they arrive. Luckily I managed to use a coupon for 20% off on Layla Grace which brought the cost down significantly. It's interesting though, I just noticed that the price has gone up $42 since I ordered, so I guess I was lucky twice!
Oh, and I've got a little bit of news. On Tuesday you'll see my music room/library featured on Mrs. Limestones' Blog. She's doing a short series on other bloggers favorite nooks. I submitted mine, she liked it and there we are. I'll post the link on Tuesday and hope that you'll hop on over there and take a look (and write a sweet comment).
