Our new bedding


B and I got some much needed new bedding for a Christmas gift this year and I can simply not wait to get it on the bed!! We've had our current bedding since our wedding in 2006. It's just ok...nothing great!!! Here it is...

So I picked out this little lady from West Elm and it should be here any day now!! Stupid backorder..urgh, but what are you gonna do??


Here's the bedding



We got it in this color.




So here's my dilema....what throw pillow should I use??? Remember people I am decor challenged....seriously, I'm not joking here! So here are a few options. I'm thinking of switching them up for the seasons and turning down the bedding in the spring and summer to reveal our beige feather duvet below the dark brown. Ok so now help me choose some throw pillows...



So here's the first option....maybe a few cream, some red and orange for fall. Then some green and cream for spring...




Or some texture with some prints... Maybe something like this...






or this






or this

Oh heck I don't know....I need help!! Any suggestions??

Each of your options is cute in its own way. I have simply one caution: do NOT do what I did, which was to buy a ton of pillows that were all small.

Let me explain. We went from a queen mattress to a king. On the queen our smallish pillows which were in reality normal sized, looked fine but pushed the envelope. I am not sure which size mattress you have but please do yourself a favor and get some large pillows to throw in the mix.

I spent HUNDREDS of dollars on decorative pillows, only to realize they were all medium to small in size and made my bed look sorta silly.

Variety is the spice of life!

p.s. the bedding is very pretty.

I like the brown with the leaves and the damask print the best, with the brown/green a close follower. The first one is just too casual for that bedding, IMO. :-)

I am positively DROOLING over that bedding! Oh, if only I did not have a dog that sleeps on my bed...

I would go with a linen throw pillow, like the one they have. I think the colors would distract from the glorious bedding. But I'm pretty neutral biased, myself.

First of all, I love the new bedding. Awesome! I like some pattern with some texture, but that is just me. I also like the change of color idea for different seasons (Mr. McB and I do that for our living room).

I LOVE that ikat pottery barn pillow, so pretty. Everytime I see it I tell my husband how much I love it and yesterday he was like, "Why don't you just get it already!" LOL

The last one with the leaf print is very pretty too! Gorgeous bedding!
