I have been working on the look I want to achieve in our new master bedroom for a few weeks now (most of this is done in my head). I know I want something different from what we have now which is the RH White Italian Stitch in Chocolate Brown bedding. I ordered the Pure White 600 Sateen from RH and thought it was going to be pure luxury and that we deserved it for the new house. I mean how often do you change the style of your bedding? For me it's not often at all so I don't mind spending the money on it since it will have to last. However, when the new bedding arrived on Friday I wasn't so ecstatic after laying it out on the bed. There was something off. I stared at it for way too long to admit. I would leave the room and then come back to see if something had changed. (Do I sound like I'm losing my mind?) Of course, nothing changed and nor was I getting use to the sheen factor. The bed was practically glowing! It was just way too shiny! So I made the executive decision to take it back and get something a bit more practical for a new family house. I mean I don't live a luxious life and nor do I have someone to iron my expensive bedding everyday to keep it looking great.
After an hour with the RH sales person I picked out the Vintage Washed Belgian Linen set in white and couldn't be happier! It's exactly the look I want to achieve - fresh, practical and elegant. Linen is luxury and much more affordable. :) Now I have to wait 5 1/2 weeks to set it up.
Ok, I must get back to work and then go check out HomeSense to see what's new. Have a great Sunday my lovelies. xo
