My new bedding

For Christmas, my Mom got Barry and I new bedding. It had been about 10 years since we had changed our bedding, and she bought that set for us back when we had just bought our first house! So anyway, she decided that it was time for a change. I'd been wanting a change too, but wasn't sure where I was going with my bedroom. Right now it is a deep red called Fine Wine, and I have a flax-colored carpet. But I was toying around with painting the walls a dark sage green...so I was waiting to buy bedding until it just felt "right". But then Mom stepped in and said it was time to get new bedding and get this bedroom done. Aren't mothers the best??
We got on Overstock.com and I immediately found this set...which I really liked. She concurred (and she has FABULOUS taste, I might add), and ordered it immediately. We figured with this set I can change the paint OR leave it the same. She even ordered me the mocha sheets and a down blanket! So now, this is how it looks in my room(keep in mind, there are no window treatments yet, and I like things pretty simplistic)...
I'm annoyed with the throw pillows...it seems we couldn't order the ones that went so nice in that first picture....bummer. But it will come together. It always does. So for now, I'll just keep fiddling around with the pillows and looking for some window treatments that feel right. I must say though, that my bedroom feels so cozy and warm in the evenings with just my bedside lamp on...I love it! Thanks Mom...you're the best!!!

Looks great. It's amazing what new bedding will do for changing a room and the feeling it gives.
