Shabby Chic White Bedding

You're more than welcome to think I have a problem. 
I know I do.
I wrote about my new bedding last spring. (Only about 5 of you saw it so you might want to pop on over to have a look.) 
I went out that day looking for white bedding. They didn't have anything so I got this darling Chapps by Ralph Lauren bedding instead. 
I got it at Tuesday Morning at a steal of a deal. 

 We started changing the other elements in the room in an attempt to lighten it up. The only colors left are some smokey blues, purples and green. 
I have been stopping in at Tuesday Morning every week or so convinced that this spring they would get in some all white bedding. 

I finally gave up. 
They had some duvets (never again)
and some matlesse coverlets (we already had an off white one.)
I wanted a fluffy comforter.
I found the new dust ruffle at Kohls. 
It had some unfavorable reviews but I love it. The material that covers the box spring can tear but the fabric on the bedskirt is lovely.

I kept searching and found the comforter at Target.
It is Shabby Chic for Target by Rachel Ashwell. 
Of course she would have the ruffled goodness I was looking for. :)
The reviews for it said the comforter was too wrinkled. I don't think so. It has a casual look and most of the wrinkles came out after a few days. 
It came with two king size pillow shams.
The shams look good with the antique lace of our other pillow cases. 
 The tray from the dining room table looks adorable. 
I may need to head out to the garage to make another one. 
 
This is a different look for me. 
Usually I have my comforter folded at the edge of the bed but most comforters are way too hot for summers around here.
I don't think this one will be. 
I'm completely smitten with the white against the dark brown furniture. 
Finally,
I have my white bed. 
Bill said, "New comforter?" 
Usually he doesn't notice. 
I guess all the white was a little more dramatic than I thought it would be.
I am hanging on to the floral set. I usually keep one comforter in reserve in case we need a change.

  6. I love anything by RA - and your new white duvet set is absolutely stunning against the dark wood! It's so very fresh and chic and cool and summery looking! I'll think that you'll probably find (like me), that you'll never buy any other type of bedding after having SSC. It washes beautifully and stays nice and crisp feeling! Beautiful job!!!

  9. Thank you for sharing your room! We are looking for white ourselves and you did a better job of marketing the comforter than Target did! I appreciate it!
