Where To Start With Your Grey and White Bedding

Chevron Makes a Great Focal Image





The All Important Focal Point

Fabulous bedrooms begin with a head-turning bed, one dressed to the nines like these chevron comforters.

Not only do you have the tell-tale zig zag pattern,  but the hint of color complements the more banal grey and white.

Now, I'm not suggesting you veer from your perceived color palette, but subtle hints of vibrant hues work well to add interest and a license to add accessories and/or wall art in a color other than a repeat of grey.


These uber budget-friendly comforters have either vibrant or subdued hues that will bring your bedroom into the 'mindset' you want to feel when relaxing.

One more great thing about these comforter sets, is they're reversible, so if you're inclined to have unforeseen changes of heart about your decor, you don't have to keep to grey and white chevron.

With decor, never say never about color and options.

Options are always a good thing!





Matching Chevron Curtains ~ Or Not

Oh, the decor's just gotta match! While that may prove to be the a nice, well-intended mantra, certain designs are just destined to be the loner, and chevron, aka zig-zag is one such pattern that might be overdone past the bed's comforter/duvet and accent pillow. Note the model rooms in the bedding sets' image above these chevron curtain panels. The beds are striking and the sheer window panels allow the bedding the honors it so deserves. I'll talk more about patterns further down. If your windows are on a wall opposite the bed, you'll be fine about using matching grey and white chevron curtains.

The Grey and White Chevron Bedding Set On a Budget

Totally budget-friendly, these chevron bedding sets have the same versatility as the reversible comforter sets I featured and talked about earlier.

While the earlier comforter sets were budget-friendly, these are uber budget-wise at under $30 (at time of my writing).

And dare I say, "cheap?"


Speaking of cheap, I love looking at model rooms like those here. With every accessory, light fixture, wall art and supporting furniture piece, I'm scanning my brain for ways to achieve the look for less.

Did you take note of the larger image, above?

The wall art is grey and white but wisely doesn't mirror the chevron; it's circular design is fabulously simple and supports the geometric theme of the bedding.

You can easily create something very similar using old frames painted white and a simple image using acrylic craft paint for both. Craft paint is often under $1.50 a bottle, and comes in a host of colors and finishes--even metallic.

I often tell folks to look around their home for old or broken toys, kitchen ware, forgotten tables and lamps.

 Turn things upside down and look at a new angle for fresh ideas: an old pail upturned becomes a lampshade, a wooden end table from Grandma's house, painted silver becomes ultra modern.

Don't discount old, mid-century modern pieces, either!

You can recreate the hanging light fixture for super-cheap cutting plastic from a home improvement store, then painting it and adding a hanging light for under $10 or so.





Don't Discount Dashing Duvets

Duvets, in case you're not real familiar with them, are a fab-u-lous idea for keeping warm and cozy in the coldest winter months, and cool and crisp during the hot-hot months of summer. Duvets are covers, meaning you tuck a duvet filler inside. These fillers can be very thin or really thick--it's all about your comfort level. Duvets often run less expensive than comforters, but you can even save further if you use an old comforter as filling. So if you tend to run hotter or colder than your significant other, consider a duvet.

Kids' Wall Art On the Cheap~As~All~Get~Out


While the zig-zag in the chevron bedding seems like the most logical answer to kids' wall art, try to refrain from strictly the zig and the zag. Instead, use a piece of white or grey card stock (the kind at big box craft stores for dirt cheap) and paint the chevron pattern very lightly on the paper, then paste an image of your boy or girls' favorite subject you've printed or cut from old books or wrapping paper over the chevron. 

Got t-shirts with tears or stains? Don't despair! Cut the image from the shirt, then stretch it on the cardboard insert of a cheap frame. Viola! Instant wall art!
