I added duvet covers from Ikea and happened to come across two packages of sheets that worked with the colors on one of my
Now I need to decide how to dress the bolsters. I really don't want this to be one of those projects that never gets done. I don't want to look at the insert for the next several months. I want to get 'er done. (This desire for quick project completion may mean that I farm the sewing of these suckers out to a professional, but we shall see.)
I've been collecting inspiration to help me decide what I want to do with the bolsters, and I would so love your input!
Darling girl's room by Ruthie Sommers, note the pair of bolsters.
Fun contrasting ribbon (tape?) on bolsters in the most precious twin sister's room . Their mama designed the room and she is crazy talented! Did I mention she has twin daughters and triplet sons?!?!
Bolsters and monograms? Oh me Oh my!
I really think I'd like to monogram them, so that helps narrow down fabric choices a bit. While I could monogram on top of a print, I'm inclined to think a solid fabric could be a nice addition here. What do you think?
I got a color card in the mail from Gray Line Linen, and they have some really beautiful colors (and their prices are fantastic! 100% linen for less than $10/yd!) Perhaps these photos will help us :)
I like the idea of doing a strong pink (perhaps the coral above? or even the fuchsia?), but I also like a green maybe? Sorry for all the indecisiveness and the unbridled use of question marks in this post, but this is really what is going through my head :)
I was thinking of doing the monogram in white to keep things clean and from going too matchy. Something along the lines of this, but probably a different style monogram (though this one is fun!)
I could always scrap the idea of a solid and bring in some classic check.
I'm a little concerned that this could read a little flat since the tones are so similar to the rest of the bedding.
I have some of this yellow check on hand. In a previous life it was used as a tablecloth, but there's no reason it can't be reinvented on pillows. There is some yellow in the sheets and a bit in the headboards...
So, what do you all think? Solid or print? What color would you choose?
