Since I'm a short timer here at work, I've been daydreaming about my new house. OH HOW I WOULD LOVE A NEW BEDROOM. I doubt any of this will happen since we will probably be BROKE after we move in, but if I could decorate our bedroom with all new stuff this is what it would look like.

The bedding is from Pottery Barn of course! I would forgo monogramming the duvet, but definitely order the monogrammed standard shams in Green Apple. I would make the nice big square Euro Shams and trim the bottom of white curtains with the Betz White Sprig and Sprouts blue/green organic cotton/hemp blend fabric. We would HAVE to order a new comforter from Pottery Barn to go in the new duvet cover - made from echo friendly materials, organic cotton outer and mirco-poly fill made from recycled plastic bottles!!

I would paint 3 walls in the Behr "Mississippi Mud" color with 1 accent wall where our bed would be in the Behr "Chocolate Cupcake" color. Keep in mind our bed is white ornamental iron that my Papaw made for my mother, so it would really stand out. Do you like how I used "Paint" to go ahead and paint the walls of the bedding picture?

This is all just wishful thinking, but a girl can dream can't she????

I have Euro shams on the bed on the boat. I thought I would love them because they are beautiful, but I freaking hate them. HATE. They're too big and awkward to cuddle with, and they always end up in the floor.
I do like your picks. I have been eye-ing that same duvet from pottery barn for a while. I dig it.
Congrats on the new house and the new job!

Cute! I am thinking of re-doing my master bedroom in all white bedding too, mine is so dark right now! Your new house is too adorable for words!

thanks everyone!! thanks ashley for the advice. our decorative shams end up somewhere else anyway - no sense in making that 4 instead of 2. maybe I will do one small square accent pillow instead, you know IF we do it!
