Bedrooms do not need to be boring, let your bedding wake you up and get you going. That having been said, I am not recommending a crazy bed-story, I am just advocating the use of either color or pattern!
I think, I have a thing for hand-block print at the moment. This bedding is fun and spunky, I love that. I like the way that this company Saffron Marigold uses pattern without a lot of color. The tan is so chic. http://www.saffronmarigold.com
Elizabeth Allen is an amazing designer, her bedding is so soft. She reproduces vintage fabrics and breathes fresh air into them! Her line is very romantic, soft and relaxed. http://www.elizabethallen.com/catalog
I love this John Robshaw bedding. Below is a bed-story I am putting together for one of my clients. I am using the yellow quilt at the end of the bed, to highlight the yellow on the elephant pillow. If you are a local (Mainer) this bedding is available at Dwellings 207-781-3711.
I want my bedroom to be a relaxing retreat, but I do not want to live in a space devoid of pattern. I have gone very neutral in colors in my bedroom, but I have layered patterns so it is not boring.
What would you like in your bedroom if you were redoing it? What does a new bedroom mean to you? I think there is a lot to think about if you are starting from scratch but, you get a big bang for your buck by just changing out your bedding.
I hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving, I am thankful for all of you.
