I wonder who else out there gets the notion to redecorate or redo rooms in your house during deployment? I have a couple things in mind that I wanted to do during this deployment and one of them was our master bedroom. There was nothing wrong with it, I just wanted a change. I've had the same red/gold bedding for nearly 5 years in there and I just wanted to do something different. I have been looking for over a year now and nothing has really stood out to me. I would find myself at looking at sets that were white, but I knew there was no way I would use white (until the kids were grown and off to college,ha) I have come across many things that I liked but was afraid I would get bored with them after a few months. So I have just kept looking hoping something would stand out.
Then out of the blue I got a suprise pkg from Jason and it was a beautiful throw with 2 shams. I knew I had to use it somehow, so I set out to find the perfect spread and accessories for it. Last week I was able to get a couple hours of shopping in with a wonderful friend and we came across a duvet cover and several pillows that we thought would work. So I brought them home and put it all together. I can not decide which way I like the best so I posted pictures and I am asking for your help in deciding which way to arrange the pillows.
See the pictures below and let me know what you think (please) (=
The bedroom BEFORE:

And the AFTERS:
I put the duvet cover over the existing spread. I put the shams that came with the cover behind the shams that Jason sent and put the throw at the end of the bed.
So here is PICTURE 1: Just standard shams that came with the duvet (in the back) and the shams that came with the throw (in front) on the bedding:
close up of the throw:
PICTURE 2: standard shams with a light blue throw pillow
PICTURE 3: standard shams with gold pillow
PICTURE 4: standard shams with one gold pillow and blue pillow
PICTURE 5: all the pillows
Next I am considering painting...maybe...but it would have to be after baseball season is over. Then I would have to think about a color (maybe the light blue/grey in the throw) And I need to come up with a window treatment...its so boring right now.
So which way do you like best??? PICTURE 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5
