Beach Cottage Anthropologie, Blue Pillowslips & WINNERS!
Fri 29th, Apr, 2011
You know what?
Here I am today taking my own advice from BC Sweet Blogging yesterday and just blogging something I love. This was going to be a before shot post of a black bedside and a bit about something that is happening to me next week…but I thought this bed was more just what I am about right now!
My bed this morning..with sunshine through the window it looked so pretty that I briefly considered making the kiddos walk to school, stripping off my exercise gear, putting my pj’s back on and hopping in. For the day.
Reality stopped that pretty quickly.
Anyway…the Anthropologie quilt I purchased ages ago and because it has been summer here hasn’t really been used to its full potential…it’s been thrown on the floor more than it’s been on the bed…but now it has firmly claimed its place on our bed for the winter, though I have to say here that I do also have a new (splutter I mean old Mr BC) ruffle quilt in hiding in the back of the wardrobe, which will be coming out on the next bedchange.
It is amazing how versatile white bedding is, which is one of the main reasons that I like it, one of the main reasons I like white everywhere actually…and contrary to popular opinion it means that you can play around with colour and different accessories really easily….I play around with the colours and textures in here all the time, just about eveyr bed change…you can see it here all pale and breezy with some balloons and vintage processing, and then with yellow and springlike flowers it was bright and cheery when when, in my wisdom, I decided to stuff daffodils all around it and then found a caterpillar in my bed with me that night, and then here a month or so ago when I cleaned out, cleaned up and moved around my bedroom for a coastal makeover and added grey polka dots, nautical stripes and pink flowers…
…here it is with these new blue pillowslips.
A few days ago I went to the mall with my teenager to buy some school supplies for him and something for dinner.
And I came home with things for the cottage…that always seems to happen doesn’t it?…when you aren’t looking for anything you just happen upon something that is pretty and floats your bed boat.
Now I have to say I don’t usually like anything too patterned but when I saw these (Morgan and Finch) I just loved the blue…French Blue, Powder Blue…I am not sure what you would call it, but it jumped out on me and I thought it would team up pretty nicely with the Anthropologie quilt.
I don’t spose it will last long knowing me…next week there’ll be ruffles ;-)
Righto I am so outta here, I have a very* busy weekend coming up, so there’s no Beach Cottage Saturday Club this week… one of my kiddos is in a big event, keeping my fingers well and truly crossed…send us some good vibes…
