Duvet Cover Changes

by Chris on July 8, 2008

I really had good intentions of rationalizing my need to change my bedding. I was going to tell you that I thought bedding needed to be changed with the seasons, or that it needed to be alternated to enhance the mood of the room. However, after much thought I figure I just have D.A.D.D. Otherwise known as Decorator’s ADD.

I love the way something as simple as a duvet cover or some throw pillows can turn a room from warm to cool or from elegant to casual. I currently have 4 bedding ensembles that I rotate. I figure I’ll show you two of them. This is the one I use…uh…in the spring. That sounds good…the spring!
You might be able to tell, but my white duvet and shams are my absolute favorite. You just can’t go wrong with white basics. Then all you have to do is change the accents. Since I have chocolate sheets, (to go with another duvet cover, mind you) I thought blue and white would be nice for the summer. You know, lighten things up a bit.
Let’s not forget my hatred for my camera–I kept trying to put one on here that didn’t seem so dark. In addition to bedding, I always try to change a little nick-nack here and there so the new colors don’t seem out of place. It’s easy to do, really. All you have to do is use colors that can be used in other rooms so you’re just moving stuff around. That way, nothing gets wasted!
NOTE: My bedroom is actually the least decorated room in my house. I only have one picture on the walls, so these pictures were taken quite carefully not to over-expose my lack of bedroom decorating skills. I’m having a REALLY hard time figuring out what I want, but I am getting closer to making a decision. I’ll keep you posted.

Hi Chris,

Okay I’m loving your blog. You have beautiful kids, an adorable dog AND your blog is full of eye candy. Can it get any better? I love how you decorate. I also have DADD. I change things out constantly.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ll be back to yours again.

Apparently, according to our friend Susie I was raised in a barn! (just kidding, S!) I have one set. It cost me a small fortune and I can’t talk Dan into letting me buy more bedding until either the bedding or college for all 3 kids is paid for. Crap.

I might need to do a TJ Maxx bedding run next payday! Love the white and blue. You need a big seashell somewhere near that! n

Loving the bedding changes! I have one for now and would love to have more. I love your blog so much and your bedroom too! I love the crisp white with each one.

They look great! I never know what I want, so we’re stuck with my bedding from college (over 5 years ago)!!

Great post! I love both sets of bedding! It’s great the way you used the same duvet cover and changed the pillows and accessories to get a completely different look. Love it!

Oh, and I must have D.A.D.D. too. Thanks for putting a name to my disorder.

I love the lighter colors right now! You are always so creative with decorating. I wish I was that way!

I love both sets of bedding! I wish I could do white. I love it. I’m drawn to white. I really am! However. With MY husband? That would never work. He can make my brown sheets look dirty. ha ha

I might just have to call you Dr. Chris! Without even knowing it, you’ve diagnosed my disorder, DADD!!!
Love the bedding:)

I love both of them – lucky you changing out with four different themes – my husband would kill me first if I tried that – and never white!! LOL!! You are an amazing decorator – love how you do your knicknacks too – those big white jars are gorgeous!! I guess my favorite is the browns – I just love the browns right now.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Your comments were so sweet. I really enjoyed reading your blog. I just sat down for a minute at the computer and ended up going through your entire blog, reading every post. I think your right, we do have similar tastes.

I will try to post more. With three kids in travel sports, things are just crazy around here.

Thanks again for stopping by. I’m so glad you did because now I have found your blog. Have a great day!

Just love your master bedroom! The brown is so warm and cozy looking but my favorite is the blue and white! It just looks so cool and refreshing. Great job!

You continue to inspire me!
