Here's a great tip to remember when picking new bedding for a quick bedroom makeover:
While out shopping, stack up selections in a pile so that you can see how things color coordinate in layers.
Select everything from floor coverings to bed pillows to give you a solid idea of how your selections can easily make up your own very personal look. We used blue and green shades in very textured patterns to keep it interesting and tactile. We found all of these items at a national home and bath department store. Included in the collection is a matelasse quilt, a down comforter, and a pashmina throw in a very pale shade of blue.
