new bedding

One of my resolutions? To finally complete our mess of a bedroom! After months of ridiculous back and forth deliberation over sheets, I took the plunge and purchased the bedding I’d been coveting from the get-go. I found it on sale at ABC carpet during one of their holiday events and it was hard to say no to. It’s the first step in bringing our bedroom up to speed with the rest of our apartment and I’ve been brainstorming other items we can bring in to finish up the room. I’m getting so sick of all that bare white wall!

Below is our new Dwell Studio Modern Border bedding in the inky black I chose. Simple I know, but I think it’s pretty and classic and most importantly I know I won’t tire of it easily. If anyone has ideas of a few other sheet patterns that might look good mixed in, I’d love to know!

Here are the rest of the pieces I want to start working on bringing in next. I’m a bit bored of my simple white West Elm parsons nightstands and thought a quick fix might be to tap in some brass campaign corners. I googled to see if it’s been done but couldn’t find any examples. Do we think it would work or look weird? Next, I plan to hang these two Kari Herer botanicals above the bed.

I spotted this brass Becket rope rod/finial on Elizabeth’s blog the other day and fell in love. Is it possible to fall in love with a curtain rod? I was planning to have a curtain made in her signature print already and now I know how the end result will look. Final touches include a Stone Textile rectangle pillow to toss on the bed, braided seagrass storage baskets for under each of our nightstands to reduce clutter, and a new nailhead upholstered headboard (though I haven’t quite settled on from where). I also have a version of these gilded acanthus motif pinboards from Ballard already and I’d like to hang it above my desk.

Any other suggestions? I’d especially love your opinion on the bedding!

    I love the artwork! And that bedding is gorgeous, I love our dwell studio bedding — it’s so cozy!

      Good to know! Was kind of worried about that because I haven’t felt it yet. Usually would never do that but I couldn’t resist the sale, ha.

    It sounds like your bedroom will be great when its all done! I love the gold/brass accents you will have from the parson table, to curtains, to your headboard! One bedding company I love is John Robshaw, I feel like his style is similar to the Stone Textile fabric you mentioned!

    • sarah | chevrons & stripes

      YES! Love John Robshaw…

    so pretty, and happy new year! you can never go wrong with a classic style. Love all of your accessories as well. I’m still trying to finish my master, too, with artwork being the biggest challenge!

      Please share! Would love to see – maybe I can help suggest some artwork! I’ve been coming across so many great pieces but we have too many things we don’t have room for as it is, ha.

    LOVE the new bedding! So fresh and pretty. Also love the idea of adding gold campaign corners to your nightstands. I say go for it!

    • sarah | chevrons & stripes

      Ok, glad you like. I’m kind of nervous but I think I’m just going to go for it!

  • Melissa Corre

    I LOVE the bedding! It’s chic and simple, you have a lot of freedom with the rest of the room which is nice. I love mixing a preppy classic bedding with bohemian accents. I’m excited to see your room pull together!

    • sarah | chevrons & stripes

      Exactly! I feel like I can always change the look of this bedding with a few new euros and a throw pillow… Some of the more patterned options out there just felt a lot more limiting!

  • Kim Windyka

    Hi, read your blog for a while. It’s great. The campaign covers are so cool. The bedding is too masculine for my taste. I would soften it with a warm throw or RENS sheepskin from Ikea. Love the botanical prints though!
