If you have read our last Bedroom Inspiration post, you will know that we are having a Grey and Turquoise colour scheme, with simple white walls. We want to keep it nice and light, but still quite chic and stylish. And after a bit of deliberating I decided I really wanted white bedding, even though I know it will show up lots of marks and be terrible to keep clean I want to at least try to have white bedding.
Whilst looking for grey and turquoise bedroom inspiration I noticed so many of the rooms also had white bedding, and I loved the idea, but knew that it wasn’t the most practical thing to have, but I don’t care! I decided that I didn’t want plain white bedding though, as it tends to look a little clinical, or like a cheap hotel room. So I decided on textured white bedding as I think it adds such class to a room, and looks simply beautiful. Here is some of my inspiration:
The first option is a pin tuck texture bedding. When I first saw this style I totally fell in love, but then realised it west pretty hard to find in the UK, and when I did it was super expensive! Most of the US ones seem to be from West Elm (which until recently I thought was US only!) so I thought I wasn’t able to get my hands on it.
The next style I fell for was the seersucker (image 1&2), amazingly again this turned out to be from West Elm, although I also found some in Debenhams. I also love the subtle stripe in set 3 and it had been paired with pillows very similar to how I want them (I love ikat style so there will be a post on that soon too!) Lastly I found this mixture of white bedding, the pillows are an almost knitted texture and the bedding is like a quilted embroidery, it just looks so sumptuous.
Luckily for me, after weeks of looking online and in store, I scored a pintuck and a seersucker set, both from Debenhams in their sale for around £30 each (neither are available anymore). Now I just have to get grey fitted sheets and second pillow cases, but thats the easy bit as I’ve found the perfect colour set in Wilkinsons, a deep stone grey. Then its on to throw pillows, but I’ll keep that for another day
