So I'm an engaged woman now (have been for over six months!) and this period of time before we officially merge our lives together is all about figuring out how exactly we are going to do that. When it comes to bedding, I've always gravitated towards florals prints and pinks in the past, but I have to consider the both of us now and don't want to subject my fiancé to anything overly girly. Thus, I set about creating a more "gender-neutral" set. UO Home always has a great selection of bedding and cute little housewares, but I had to force myself to skip past all the pretty pink things that would normally catch my eye unfortunately.
Instead I went for an ivory-colored base with the Tufted Dot duvet cover (speaking of which, though, that ROSE color??? Major heart eyes) and matching shams, and decided to opt for grayish accents. I figure having white-bedding is a pretty good idea in case I ever want to shoot a flat-lay or something. I couldn't resist a little pom-pom action (sorry, my fiancé will just have to deal!) and also got this cute, hipstery embroidered throw pillow (now sold out) to kind of tie everything together. As a current, trendy item, I got this cheeky "Good Vibes" throw pillow. Can never have enough good vibes!
What do you think? Did I succeed in creating a "gender-neutral" bed?
