I had to post about this new bedding I bought, because it is awesome and you should know about it too.
I’ve had my eye on this chevron bedding from West Elm for awhile. I really liked the pattern and could easily see it looking great in our bedroom. Plus our current bedding was on it’s 4th year and was starting to fade and get old.
The thing is, back in about 2006, I purchased some West Elm bedding on sale for less than $60 bucks. I was really excited about it, and when it showed up, I was really disappointed. It was scratchy and stiff and not anything I would want next to my skin at the end of the day. I was super bummed. Ever since then I’ve been nervous about purchasing bedding from West Elm.
I couldn’t resist that pattern though, so last week when they were offering free shipping I did it. I ordered up my bedding. I was really unsure as to how it was going to pan out. First of all their bedding is fairly inexpensive as far as bedding goes. I was worried I was going to get what I paid for.
This stuff is great, it’s super comfy, it feels soft even though it’s 200 thread count. Second, the bedding is generous in size! I hate it when things are advertised as full/queen and then they barely fit the width of your bed. This full/queen duvet hangs over a good foot on either side of my queen size bed. It also has attachment ties on the inside of the duvet, something that has been lacking in recent duvet covers I’ve purchased. The button closures were made from Abalone shell (super pretty), and the cotton is organic. West Elm did it right!
I totally love it and it was worth every penny of the $89 I spent on it.
So, now you know.
Love the gray and yellow combo – those were our wedding colors, so modern and classic. Absolutely LOVE the quilt – where did ya get it? Or did you make it?
I know, me too! Totally love gray and yellow. I bet your gray and yellow wedding was super pretty. I did our baby’s room in gray and yellow too. I have a hard time getting over it. I think I mainly just love yellow though. I always want yellow bits everywhere.
Anyway, no I did not make the quilt. It’s the reverse side to a Dwell Studio for Target quilt that I bought last year. The pattern was called Mandala. I think they discontinued it but you might be able to find it using this search o ebay.
Very nice! I love the pattern/color of the duvet cover juxtaposed with the pattern/color of the quilt. Supah classy!
I’m loving it too!
Mm. That IS nice.
Hi! Where could I look to purchase a pillow like the white one you have with those yellow circles on it??
I purchased it at Target about 2 years ago, it was part of the Dwell Studio for Target collection. You might be able to find it on ebay, good luck!
Hey! Such a cute bedroom! I love your bed skirt…. is it the whole top sheet that is down to the floor or do you have a white bed skirt? could you tell me where you got it? Thanks!! Also – what are those big white pillows in the back called? :)
