Last year Southern Accents had an article called "One Headboard, Three Looks." I remember this article because I always find it interesting which "look" people prefer. I also remember this article because it contained none other than: My ideal bed.
One of these pictures is what I want my bed to look like. I'll tell you at the end.
But before I tell you which one I covet- I want you to pick your favorite and let me know in the comments section.
(because we can all agree that it's fabulous... and bejeweled!* (with nailhead)
all styled by Birmingham designer Liz Woods
#1 Blanketed in White
#2 Shades of Gray
#3 An Appealing Pattern
Which one do you choose?
Or if you can't see yourself sleeping in these beds you can choose to veto all of them.
Which one do I choose?
You probably could have guessed...
#2. Love at first sight...
So I did what any scatter-brained, magazine inspired, have-to-have-it-NOW, interior designer would do:
I started shopping.
Then I quickly realized that this #2 bed would not only empty my wallet- but it would flat out destroy our nest egg.
And the rope blanket.... Oh, the rope blanket. You are killing me with that price tag. Not to mention the name of the color about send me over the edge: Earth.
Although it is gorgeous I knew that my cat and any other future animal would ruin it in a heartbeat. So I began my search for a more affordable version of #2.
For the scroll coverlet and shams:
Dillards. Much better price and has the same texture to it (you can't see it in the picture so you'll have to trust me on that one)
To replace the rope blanket:
The Diamond Matelasse coverlet in graphite*- from Restoration Hardware
I also found that Eileen Fisher's collection at Garnet Hill has a charcoal/gray color that is similar:
I actually found a very similar look but it is only in throw blankets and pillows:
Empire Embroidered sheets in gray.
And as for that gorgeous bolster pillow? "Taupe Verno bolster" by Archipelago.
I"m at a loss. And I still can't find any info on it- In other words:
Drop it. You can't afford it.
Waste 3 hours of your life looking for something similar online.
Force your blog readers to come up with it.
Be patient. I'll stumble upon it (or something like it) one day.
I have a feeling it might involve some of these fabrics:
John Robshaw fabrics... Maybe this guy from his website can help me-
or just give me one of those bags!!!
