I'm on the hunt for new bedding. It's an item that deserves some careful consideration, because it really sets the tone for your bedroom decor. After an extra day to do some online shopping over the long weekend, I think I may have found the perfect set.
This Floral Marine Duvet Set from DwellStudio is stylish and affordable. I like that it's a feminine, floral pattern without being too fussy or ultra-girly. The navy, grey and white graphic pattern gives it the quality of an ink sketch, and I love when fabrics have a painterly, hand-drawn look to them.
The repetitive floral pattern is a new take on the Art Deco rose motif (pictured above) that was so popular in the 1920s. I've always felt an affinity for Art Deco design, whether it's in the form of an illustration, architecture or jewelry — I think I must have been a flapper girl in my past life — so maybe that's why I'm drawn to this particular bedding set.
Reincarnation aside, this set is too pretty not to have in my apartment. It's also got me thinking about repainting our bedroom in this moody, navy blue colour. I've been contemplating navy for a while and it looks amazing against the white and blue bedding. I like how they've styled the room with bronze and copper accents, too, adding warmth to the space. (Sighs) I'm currently picturing my next long weekend off nestled cosily underneath that duvet with a book — what about you?
