Have you ever found that a room will take on a life of its own and take you in a completely different direction from the one you intended? This is exactly what happened in my bedroom, which I had intended to be pink and white with a few hints of yellow and maybe a touch of dark blue.
Well, it is along those lines, but the yellow became a much more focal colour and suddenly GREEN started appearing as well, and the blue looked all wrong! I have learnt to let a room speak for itself, as it will often know better than I do and if I try to force my hand it just looks “meh”.
So, with the colour scheme in my bedroom making itself known I decided I would really like a new floral duvet cover, something rosy and vintage-looking, sort of 1950s, in pink, yellow and green. I had a very specific idea in mind and doubted I would ever find it.
The internet is an amazing place! Fifteen minutes of googling and I landed on a UK site called Joules. Apart from falling in love with all of their bedlinen, I found “Ruby Rose”. It was PERFECT!
Dragging out a reluctant Visa card, I clicked Add to shopping bag. A few days later (thanks to a speedy UK to AU delivery from DHL) a pretty rosy parcel arrived for me, and voila!
How gorgeous does it look? (And yes, I know it needs ironing, but I was just too impatient to get it on the bed. Anyway, isn’t ironing bad for the environment?)
A nice vintagey-view here, very 1950s!
Merlin approves! (Mostly because he knows he looks fabulous with floral!!)
