I couldn’t stand to have the clashing duvet cover in my bedroom any longer, so on the way back from Crysty’s wedding we stopped at Ikea for a budget-friendly duvet update. We needed to transform our bed from this:
Ok, so it’s not that exciting. Keep in mind it’s just the beginning of the bedroom transformation.
While a white duvet cover made for easy color matching, I was worried it’d be boring. But this one is just perfect: the irregular white-on-white pattern reminded me of the way sunlight glistens on pool water. Even better? The king-size cover was on clearance for only $29, including two pillow shams. When we arrived home I simply turned it inside out and hemmed each side so that it would be the right size for our queen bed. And when we upgrade to a king size later this year, all I have to do is cut out the seams for an instant King-size upgrade.
I love how fresh and clean the white duvet looks against the pale seafoam walls. We picked up a few textured pillows to keep things interesting, and I think the weathered gray/tan pillows are perfect for a muted beach theme.
Next up: building some low-profile nightstands, installing some wall sconces, finding the perfect beachy art for the walls, sewing some coordinating dog beds, and doing some creative and beachy window-dressing. I’m gonna try and stay focused and complete this room before moving on to the others. . . so stay tuned!
